What is Hemp?

Cannabidiol, more commonly known as Hemp, is a compound extracted from the hemp plant. The hemp plant is a cousin of the marijuana plant, but, unlike marijuana, the hemp plant contains no more than trace amounts of the psychoactive ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  Therefore, hemp-derived Hemp does not cause a “high.”

Is Hemp Safe?

The World Health Organization reports that “there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure Hemp.”  However, many Hemp products currently fall outside the scope of federal regulation, resulting in products that vary widely in quality.  Products may not contain the stated amount of Hemp, or may contain additional foreign, harmful ingredients.  Therefore, consumers should only purchase Hemp from reputable, trusted brands that test and certify their products.

Does Hemp really Work?

Definitive research on Hemp’s efficacy is in its early stages and, like any treatment, individual responses to Hemp will vary.  Many people have successfully used Hemp for relief from stress, anxiety, inflammation, aches & pains, and sleeplessness.
