2. Is Hemp Legal?

     a.  The legality of Cannabidiol from hemp is based on a 2004 unanimous ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which determined that the DEA “cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana, i.e., non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled..”

4. What are the dosage requirements?

     a.  Legally, we are unable to make dosage recommendations, but would suggest doing some further research at ProjectCBD.org. Linked is their Patient Guidance page, which has a wide array of information for using industrial hemp, as well as recommended dosage. To that point, industrial hemp affects everyone differently - both immediately and over time - so the product and dosage that works best for each person would need to depend on the individual.

     a.  Our bars contain less than 0.03% THC. However, we are unable to legally state whether or not one of our customers will pass a drug test for any of our products.

10. Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as Full Spectrum hemp extract?   

     a.  Definitely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our full spectrum hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is 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.

11. What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

     a.  “The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “Ananda,” which translates to “peace”). For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.
