What is Hemp?

Hemp, often referred to as Industrial Hemp, is a member of the cannabis family of plants. Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis family, but very different, just as lemons and grapefruits are both members of the citrus family. Marijuana contains a psychoactive component known as THC (∆9-Tetrahydrocannabinol). It is the THC that gets one “high”. Hemp on the other hand, contains only trace amounts of THC and cannot get you high, and has numerous very nutritious and beneficial compounds (proteins, amino acids, etc.) in addition to high concentrations of the VERY beneficial CBD, to promote good health and well-being. Hemp products are 100% legal in all 50 states and most of the rest of the world.


Isn’t Hemp Marijuana?

Hemp and marijuana are both members of the cannabis family, but very different plants, just as lemons and grapefruits are both members of the citrus family. Marijuana contains a psychoactive component known as THC (∆9-Tetrahydrocannabinol). It is the THC that gets one “high”. Hemp has only negligible amounts of THC, but not enough to get anyone high, even in large quantities.


Will CBD result in a positive drug test?

Drug tests are used to detect THC and other psychoactive compounds. The trace amounts (less than 0.3%, by law) of THC that may be in natural and organic CBD will not result in a positive test result in standard drug tests.
