Is hemp legal?

Totally.  According to the 2018 Farm Bill, it is federally legal to grow, sell and consume hemp-based products in most states (excludes: Idaho,  Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts,  Mississippi, New Hampshire, South Dakota, South Carolina, Texas,  Virginia)

Is hemp the same thing as weed?
Kinda. Both plants are from the cannabis genus (remember science class?).  The big difference is that hemp contains less than 0.3% THC, the element that causes the "high" in marijuana.

What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol (CAN-nah-bi-dEYE-ol) and is a component, or cannabinoid, of the cannabis plant.

What are cannabinoids?

They're all the natural chemicals of the cannabis plant. CBD and THC are the most famous, but there are even more with long, hard-to-pronounce names.  Our brains also produce cannabinoids.

Will CBD get me high?

NO. It will not get you high.  THC is what gets you high and there is less than 0.3% present in our hemp - which is not enough to create a psychoactive effect.

Where does the hemp come from?

All our hemp is grown in the rich alluvial soils of the Pacific Northwest on small family farms that are no larger than 20 acres. This allows us to cultivate the best possible in order hemp with the least impact to the land .

Do you have creams and tinctures?

What is the entourage effect?  

There are   hundreds of chemical compounds in the hemp plant. The "entourage effect" is the theory that these compounds work together in certain ways to create a unique effect.  Remove or increase one of the compounds, and the product will have a different effect on the body.  Think of it like being alone at home vs. being with your friends. When you're alone, you might feel quite, peaceful or lonely, but when you hang out with your friends, you might feel more lively and happy.  Make sense?

While scientists are still unraveling the mystery of CBD and it medicinal applications, consumers are already clamoring for hemp-based products, even perfectly healthy consumers.  For many, hemp offers a natural treatment for garden-variety anxiety or a healthier way to unwind in the evening.  Although it is not intoxicating, CBD does have an effect.  It has been described as a soothing sensation in the body and a feeling of calm, balanced focus in the mind.

Botanically speaking, all hemp is considered the same species - Cannabis sativa.  Different varieties (or strains) are bred to produce fiber for textiles, seeds and oil for food, or chemical compounds (both medicinal and psychoactive).

Strains are selected for fiber and edible seed production is historically associated with industrial hemp.  Hemp fibers are now being used to produce building materials, bioplastics and antibacterial agents.  Hemp seeds are a source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids for both animal and human consumption.

The most commercially valuable strains of Cannabis sativa are those containing cannabinoids and terpenoids:

  • Terpenoids are known to produce the fragrance and flavor of all aromatic plants and flowers, including hemp flowers.

  • Cannabinoids have been harvested for millennium for medicinal uses.  The most famous cannabinoid, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is notorious for its psychotropic effects.

Most cannabinoids are not psychoactive, however, some varieties of Cannabis sativa produce flowers that are low in THC and high in cannabidiol (CBD), the active ingredient in the first cannabis-based FDA-approved pharmaceutical drug.  These CBD-dominant strains now qualify as industrial hemp under the 2018 Farm Bill, as long as their THC content is lower than 0.3%.

Clinical studies have proven CBD's efficacy as a treatment for epilepsy, with no serious side effects.  It also shows potential (yet unproven) as a remedy for depression and anxiety.  CBD's demonstrable anti-inflammatory properties have inspired a plethora of new topical treatments and skin care products.
