There are many misconceptions about hemp, hemp extract, and hemp-based products but there are three main facts that are important to understanding when researching industrial hemp. Industrial hemp is a potent supplement and has been used for thousands of years to support overall health and wellness. With that said, there are three very important facts to know about hemp extract that can clear up a lot of confusion.
- Industrial Hemp Extract Won’t Get You High – Industrial hemp does not contain THC like marijuana (maximum of 0.3 percent compared to marijuana of 10+ percent), but industrial hemp actually contains chemicals that work as an anti-psychoactive. THC is the chemical found in the strain of hemp known as marijuana that causes a high. This chemical is not found in the industrial hemp used for our products we sell here at Made by Hemp
- Hemp Foods You See in the Grocery Store are Not the Same – The hemp-based foods and hemp seeds found in the grocery store are created using the seed from the hemp plant, while CBD extract is sourced from the flower of the plant. Food incorporating the hemp seed has a lot of beneficial fatty acids and other nutrients but should not be confused with CBD hemp extract.
- Industrial Hemp is Legal in all 50 States – If sourced responsibly, industrial hemp is completely legal in the united states. Our hemp is properly sourced from the Kentucky and Colorado, and tested here in our own lab as well as by third-party labs to ensure the highest and purest quality.
