Hemp is a Cannabis sativa plant. Industrial hemp are those cannabis sativa plants that contain less than 0.3% of THC in their dried plant matter. Industrial hemp comes in a variety of genetics, which differ in the quantities of cannabinoids they contain. Due to the low trace amount of THC, industrial hemp plants are not psychoactive, they do not give you a high, but allows you to benefit from the intake of cannabinoids and other plant beneficials. Our proprietary hemp plant genetics contain the highest level of cannabinoids available in the industry today, to provide you with the best hemp extracts possible.

Hemp has been readily cultivated for thousands of years. Historically, industrial hemp was grown for fiber and seed. Legislation from 1930s to the 1960s and 1970s made it illegal to cultivate the plant in the US. The 2014 farm bill re-opened the door for the cultivation of hemp plants with a THC content of less than 0.3%.

Our hemp extracts deliver the whole plant spectrum of cannabinoids and other plant beneficials
What are cannabinoids?
Each cannabis plant contains a variety of distinct cannabinoids and dozens of other natural compounds. The most well known cannabinoids are CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD is not psychoactive, it does not give you a ‘high’, while THC is the only psychoactive of all cannabinoids, it gives you a ‘high’. Industrial hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than 0.3% of THC in its dried plant matter, which constitutes trace amounts only that do not give you a high. Our products are made of proprietary industrial hemp genetics that are particularly high in CBD and extremely low in THC, providing you with an industry leading whole spectrum of plant beneficials.

How do Cannabinoids work?
Humans naturally produce cannabinoids that are involved physiological processes affecting: appetite, muscle cell learning, nerve signal pathways (synapses) etc. In the human body cannabinoids bind to receptors called CB1 and CB2. These receptors modulate the brain, the nervous system, and major organs. Cannabinoids bind to either one of the receptors. CBD, however, binds to both of them providing clinical benefits. Research indicates that increased reception of CBD stimulates the body to increase cannabinoid production levels. However, none of these statements have been approved by the FDA.
