'HEMP HEMP HOORAY Have a healthy day!!'
After the unexpected passing of our founder Justin, aka Johnny Hempseed, we have formed a family team of caring humans dedicated to getting quality CBD Hemp oil into the hands of people, patients & animals who need it to heal. We source the CBD oil from Industrial HEMP and then mix it into local raw honey to be made into honey sticks & dog/critter treats. Future projects include making our own treats, including horse treats, and making high potency sticks of 5 & 10mg. We are dedicated to educating the public about the benefits of CBD. If our products have been helpful to you we would love to know!
All products sold by H.E.M.P are made with the highest quality full spectrum CBD that contains both the decarboxylated (i.e. CBD) and non-decarboxylated (i.e. CBD-A) forms of cannabinoids, in a 1:1 ratio.The difference between our products and the competition is the way in which our CBD is extracted from industrial hemp.
Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same plants, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different genetic profile though. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Typically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds.
99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances and only a trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally.
The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis.
Beware of labels. Standard hemp seed oil is not the same as a high-CBD hemp extract. Standard hemp oil, which can be found cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than full spectrum hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is produced through a full plant extraction with many components not typically found in the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be a great nutritive food, but it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts do have.
In the USA the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP — The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
