Here are some questions that we get daily:
Q: I can buy Hemp Oil at the grocery. Is that what you guys sell?
A: No, Hemp oil is extracted from hemp seed and contains low to no CBD. Hemp Oil is used as a food. Hemp Extracts are obtained from the entire hemp plant and contains a host of cannabinoids and is typically used as a natural medicine.
Q: Is CBD Oil Legal in all 50 States?
A: Yes and No; it is legal to possess in any state if the hemp used is grown in a state that has a pilot industrial hemp program. If your hemp extract is grown in a state without said program, then that product is illegal. Also, many states have approved the commerce of hemp extracts, But many have not. We are continuously trying to keep up with the ever-evolving legality of cannabis in our state and nation wide. Consult with a lawyer familiar with cannabis laws if you are unsure.
Q: My Friend told me to come pick up some CBD, but my bottle only says hemp extract. What’s the Difference?
A: Hemp is the plant. CBD is extracted from hemp. Some company labels only say ” Hemp extract,” so a certain percent of that is CBD. Some companies will print CBD content on the label. It varies from company to company.
Q:Do your products only contain CBD?
A: No, our products are considered whole plant, Full spectrum extracts meaning they contain CBD as well as a whole host of other cannabinoids. This full spectrum of constitutes provide what is known as the ” entourage effect,” which is true of herbal medicine in general. Whole plants or parts of plants are used, as opposed to a single molecule that has been isolated.
Q: Do Hemp extracts contain THC( Tetrahydrocannabinol, the cannabinoid found in the marijuana that causes euphoria)?
A: Our most common question! By law, hemp extracts may by nature contain no more than o.3% THC. So, the products on our shelves may contain traces or none at all. The amounts that may be present are NOT enough to have a psychoactive effect.
Q: Will hemp extracts cause me to fail a drug test?
A: Also, a very common question. We never want to mislead anyone on this topic. The answer is MAYBE. Since these extracts can, by law, contain traces of THC, it may show up in a urine test. Some companies are labeling their products as ” THC-Free” so this would be a good option if you want to try CBD if your job requires drug testing. Companies can and will provide assays on each lot they make. We have seen assays showing zero THC, but have seen some that did indeed contain legal traces. We will continue to monitor the legal status of cannabis as it evolves and will follow up with another article soon. We are not attorneys, so consult with a knowledgeable one if you have more specific concerns about this topic.
