FAQs

Is Hemp Legal?

Yes, the 2018 Farm Bill includes changes that specifically separate Hemp from Marijuana, and fully legalizing at the federal level the cultivation, processing, possession, and usage of hemp and hemp products. The 2018 Farm Bill defines ‘‘industrial hemp’’ as the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.

As the new 2018 Farm Bill is being interpreted and updated regulations put in place at the state level, HempSure+ offers Federally legal industrial hemp that is registered with the West Virginia Department of Agriculture and complies to Section 7606 of the 2014 US Farm Bill.

Will I fail a drug test if I use hemp?

Because industrial hemp contains trace amounts of THC, HempSure+ will NOT guarantee that any person will be able to pass a drug test after using our products. If you are required to submit to random drug testing for any reason then its recommended you avoid use of hemp CBD products of all kinds. Other hemp hemp products such hemp seeds do not contain THC and therefore present no risk.

Are your products organic?

All hemp used in HempSure+ products are organically grown, meaning no chemical pesticides or herbicides are use whatsoever. Some hemp flower is additionally organically certified, meaning it was grown under organic practices and those practices and the cultivation location has been inspected by the USDA and certified as such. Products that have the additional organic certification are noted in the product description.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but unlike THC is non-psychoactive.

Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.

Project CBD contains some excellent information regarding CBD. Also check the Tuck Sleep Center for an excellent CBD overview including information regarding potential sleep benefits.

What is CBG?

All of the cannabinoids present in cannabis are derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). As the cannabis plant matures, CBGA, which is the acidic form of CBG, is converted by plant enzymes into some ratio of the three major cannabinoid precursors: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).

Unlike CBD, which has a relatively low affinity for cannabinoid receptors and acts mostly through indirect interactions with the endocannabinoid system, CBG is thought to elicit its therapeutic effects directly though interaction with the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain. Although the level of research into CBG’s health benefits has not yet caught up with that for CBD, early studies show potential benefits in the areas of; Treating Glaucoma, Inflammation, Stress Reduction, Tumor Growth.

Analytical Cannabis contains some excellent information regarding the differences between CBG and CBD.

What is Full Spectrum and why should I care?

The term Full Spectrum can really be applied to any botanical item and it means that it contains all (or most of) the fully natural compounds, oils, etc. that give it its unique nature. With respect to hemp it means the same, and specifically that the flower, essential oil, extract, etc. contains not only CBD but the many cannabinoids typically present. Hemp, as a member of the cannabis family, typically can contain well over a hundred identified cannabinoids and dozens of terpenes. These compounds are thought to work synergistically in the human body to increase the effect of CBD, commonly referred to as “the entourage effect”. This is why consuming products with only CBD will not provide the the same benefit as a full spectrum product.

What are Terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic oils that provide unique taste and smell characteristics for all plants and thus are not unique to cannabis. All plants, herbs and fruits have unique terpene profiles which is what creates the differences in taste and smell. Over 200 different terpenes have been discovered and they’re considered safe to consume by the FDA. There are about a dozen important terpenes most commonly found in cannabis.

What is the purpose of the Gold in HempSure+ Topical?

Colloidal Gold is thought to be a natural stimulant and rejuvenator for cells throughout the body and improves the electrical signals between nerve cells in the brain.

It’s also thought to help:
– Arthritis, restless leg syndrome and ease joint pain
– Improve mental clarity, concentration, memory and focus
– Re-awaken the senses such as vision and hearing
– Have a calming effect to ease stress, anxiety, depression and increase energy
– Improve skin

Will I absorb CBD while smoking a Hemp Cigar?

Yes, even if you don’t inhale, because your mouth contains oral mucosa that is capable of the absorption of many compounds, including cannibinoids. This is the same pathway in which CBD tinctures work to provide the body with CBD when placed under the tongue. Additionally, you will find our hemp cigars to be amazingly smooth (in fact, as smooth as vaping products), permitting inhalation for maximal absorption of CBD if desired.
