The CBD in Barroso's gummies was derived from marijuana plants, so it contained another compound, THC, which is illegal in many states. Barosso needed something without THC--he'd been jailed for drug use, and testing positive for THC would violate his parole.

"I could have gotten cleaner quicker if I'd had CBD every day," he says.
HempWorx earns bonus points right out of the gate by choosing to use domestically grown, organic, and non-GMO hemp, and knocks it out of the park with their evident passion for educating the public on the uses, history, and science of cannabinoids. Fun facts (such as the fact that the first American flag was made out of hemp) add a rich critical thinking element to the customer’s experience.

“As we researched hemp food products, the majority of it was as a base ingredient for shakes and smoothies,” says Dolgin. “We believe the next iteration of the hemp market is to go into snack foods, to give it wider penetration into households,” he says. “We’re looking at products like ice cream and beer.
