As we start this Hemp Crate journey together we want to ensure we are always focusing on transparency, Therefore, we wanted to take a minute to talk about medical claims and how they relate to the Hemp and CBD market.
First, an important disclaimer: the distinction between CBD derived from marijuana and CBD from hemp oil is what sets them apart. Marijuana is harvested for its buds, which contains psychoactive properties known to produce ‘stoned effects.’ When it comes to hemp, the stalks and seed are the targets of this crop. These plants do not contain enough THC to get a person high. In fact, for cannabis to be considered hemp, it must have no more than 0.3 percent THC.
All of the products we will be providing in our monthly subscription boxes and in our retail store will all be cultivated and harvested from 100% organic industrial hemp farms. Our products will be derived from hemp oil and will not have psychoactive properties. They are and have been legal. However, the newly signed legislation continues to reinforce that the hemp revitalization our country is experiencing is just getting started.
This great news aside, a lot of companies in this space consistently make unfounded claims on the efficacy of their products. And they very well may work. But, and it is a big but, the only product approved by the FDA for treatment of a condition (epilepsy) with CBD oil currently is Epidiolex.
Therefore, Hemp Crate and our direct partners will not make claims that our products heal or can remedy an ailment, even though a lot of our products will have proven additives like B12 (good for energy) and melatonin (good for sleep). That doesn’t mean we don’t believe in our products. Quite the contrary – Hemp Crate wouldn’t exist if we didn’t believe in the great experiences that can be derived from usage! However, we care deeply about compliance, thus our stance on medical claims.
We encourage you to do your own research and suggest talking with a friend that has had an experience with CBD oil. And if your interest is still piqued come back and give us a try. We will be here to answer any questions you have.
There are literally thousands of CBD success cases with users chronicling their experiences. Here are some that caught our eye.
Have a wonderful and safe New Year!
