How Is Hemp Different From Marijuana?
Scientifically, Industrial Hemp and “Marijuana” both fall under the umbrella of cannabis plants, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different concentrations of cannabinoids. Typically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a “marijuana” strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. The majority of the time “marijuana” contains high concentrations of THC and only a very low amount of non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD and only small trace amounts of THC, making for an excellent dietary supplement.
Does CBD oil cause side effects?
We always recommend to consult your physician before using any dietary supplement, including our hemp oil. Hemp is considered generally safe, so there should not be any significant side effects of taking CBD, but as with all supplements, there can be variability in how each individual body tolerates and adapts to these dietary supplements.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol, and is a NON-PSYCHOACTIVE constituent of the hemp plant.. The hemp plant contains a much more significant concentration of CBD and low quantities of THC (the psychoactive molecule in Marijuana). Research has demonstrated that CBD has a huge role in maintaining normal human physiology through the Human Endocannabinoid System.
What is the Human endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
Just like your body has a circulatory system, respiratory system, and digestive system, it has a ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM. It is made up of a collection of endogenous cannabinoid receptors that are intimately integrated into ALL OF THE BODY’S SYSTEMS. The MAIN FUNCTION of the ECS is to maintain HOMEOSTASIS in the body, helping the body maintain a stable internal environment.
There are two main types of cannabinoid receptors, CB1 receptors mostly found in the brain and neurology, and CB2 receptors which are found in the organs related to immune functioning (intestines, pancreas, spleen, etc). The two key cannabinoids that the human body produces ENDOGENOUSLY are 2-arachidonylglycerol (2-AG) and Anandamide. This system was discovered in the 1980s and unfortunately is not traditionally taught in most medical schools.
This system can also be fueled by PHYTOCANNABINOIDS, cannabinoids from plant based sources such as the industrial hemp plant.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS LEGAL?
CBD from hemp is considered a DIETARY SUPPLEMENT and is legal in all 50 states. Our hemp oil comes from imported industrial hemp, and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight and in compliance with the Federal Controlled Substances Act.
WILL YOUR PRODUCTS GET ME HIGH?
No. Because of the low THC content of our hemp oil, it is not nearly significant enough to create psychoactive effects. No. Because of the low THC content of our hemp oil, it is not nearly significant enough to create psychoactive effects.
In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the “high” produced by THC; it actually prevents THC molecules from binding to the CB1 receptors in the brain (hence the reason why it’s often used to subdue the ‘paranoia’ effects of super-potent THC strains).
DOES CANNABIDIOL (CBD) AND OTHER NATURAL HEMP BASED CONSTITUENTS SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
Most workplace drug tests are looking for Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and does not detect legal plant cannabinoids, including CBD. IN RARE CASES, studies have shown people who have consumed large amounts of hemp based foods or oils have showed up positive on drug screenings. If you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend that you do not ingest our products and consult with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.
If you are looking to AVOID the trace amounts of THC commonly found in CBD products, we suggest the THC-free N8 Hemp Oil-X.
WHY DOES YOUR HEMP OIL COME IN A SYRINGE?
Our N8 Hemp Oil comes in a syringe for easier measuring of doses and more convenient dispensing and is for ORAL consumption. There is no needle in the syringe, and you do not inject our hemp oil.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS SAFE?
Yes. All of our hemp crops are grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
We test our hemp oil multiple times from harvest to shipping to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as to discern adequate cannabinoid content.
Our distributors use a supercritical CO2 method when extracting our hemp oil, instead of harsh solvents. CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.
DO I NEED A MEDICAL CARD TO BUY YOUR PRODUCTS?
No. Our products are dietary supplements and do not require a doctor’s recommendation or require that you live in a medical marijuana state to have our products delivered to your door. However,as with any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your physician before starting.
HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD I TAKE?
Each person’s human endocannabinoid system will react to different concentrations of CBD differently, and each person has a different optimal serving size Our hemp oil supplements come in a variety of different concentrations and potencies. In order to determine if CBD hemp oil is right for you, we strongly recommend consuming the product to completion. If you have what an optimal serving size might be for you, schedule a consultation with one of our doctors to see which of our products would best help your body.

Personal preference will decide which product is best for you! Our CBD products include topical, externally applied lotions and salves, and internal tincture and oil for oral ingestion. We offer a wide selection of products featuring different flavors, potencies, and consistencies.
IS CBD FROM HEMP AS GOOD AS CBD FROM MARIJUANA?
YES. Regardless of if from industrial hemp or from marijuana. It’s important to keep in mind that hemp and marijuana are simply different varieties of the same plant, cannabis sativa L. The defining characteristic that makes hemp different from marijuana is its extremely low volume of THC. Our hemp oil is made from industrial hemp that has very low trace amounts of THC, and high concentration of CBD.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD HEMP OIL AND THE HEMP PRODUCTS I BUY AT THE GROCERY STORE?
The hemp products often sold in retail stores are typically made with hemp seed oil, which only contains trace amounts of CBD. While hemp seed oil is known for its great nutritional content, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement. Our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalk of carefully selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
WHAT IS IN YOUR HEMP OIL?
Besides CBD, our hemp oil contains various other cannabinoids, Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, and over a dozen vitamins and minerals, like iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene, often missing from the average diet.
WHERE DOES YOUR HEMP COME FROM?
In the United States, the cultivation of industrial hemp for commercial use is illegal. In compliance with U.S. Law, our hemp comes from Northern Europe where industrial hemp has been cultivated for centuries.
WHY SHOULD I USE CBD FROM NATURAL SOURCES?
Using a naturally sourced CBD hemp oil allows the synergistic effect of all of the naturally occurring constituents in the hemp plant. Often times, synthetic and chemically-extracted CBD will remove the nutritious plant products that contains the fatty acids, waxes, vitamins, minerals, terpenes, bioflavinoids, and other phytocannbinoids that contribute to the “entourage effect”.Additionally, Synthetic CBD has dangerous side effects similar to other synthetic prescription drugs.
