The Trump administration doesn’t want to see hemp expanded nationwide in the next Farm Bill because of concerns about overproduction, an official said Wednesday. Greg Ibach, undersecretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said current hemp regulations are “fairly narrow” and that the Trump administration doesn’t necessarily want to see that change when the Farm […]
We include this review merely to note that at least one other person wonders their cbd hemp oil is even cbd oil, or if it is merely hemp oil. This is not clear on the labeling, but after digging up information and doing some calculations, I believe the product may in fact contain therapeutic levels of CBD. Most likely, they failed to clearly demonstrate this because they are worried about selling to marketers, not to customers, and that could lead to supply issues for the consumer. Some MLM products, you can’t even get without becoming an affiliate.
Hemp Business Journal has also reviewed sales of clothing, auto parts, building materials and various other products, and estimates the total retail value of hemp products sold in the U.S. in 2017 to be at least $820 million, including hemp foods (17%); personal care products (22%); textiles (13%); supplements (5%); hemp derived cannabidiol or CBD products (23%), consumer textiles (13%); industrial applications (18%); and other products such as paper and building materials accounted for the remaining 2% of the market.
No exaggeration our life journey is enjoyable again because of HEMPWORX My husband has PTSD and Parkinson's diease. He has been on CBD oil for 9 months. The ﬁrst stint on the oil was for approximately three months, his tremors reduced dramatically and anxiety all but disappeared. Then he ran out. OMG never again, the tremors came back and the PTSD kicked straight back in. That was six weeks at absolute hell. Sleep deprivation, back to living like a hermit not wanting to go out, deﬁnitely no social life. Life is hard with Parkinson's, the tremors stop him from wanting to be in public. Roll on to the next shipment and a change to Hempworx. The change is dramatic, we are back to being able to go out for dinner again, Doug will now chose to socialise instead of always saying 'no'. Being able to hold a cup of coffee without wearing it, being able to cut up his food without help, being told by the neurologist he does not need to see him for twelve months. I have and never will have a problem caring for my husband, the love between us is strong and he is worth every second of my time but in the harder times the joy of living can be lost for both of us. BTW he takes 10 drops morning and night. Because of Hempworx our life journey is enjoyable again.
In addition to THC, Meyer and consumers also need to worry about whether CBD products have contaminants. That’s because cannabis plants readily absorb heavy metals, pesticides, and other potentially harmful chemicals that may be in the soil or water, says Kyle Boyar, a cannabis scientist at Medicinal Genomics, a company that develops tests that help labs comply with state rules. To protect against that risk, cannabis plants should be tested frequently while they are growing, and finished products should be tested, using validated methods, too, Boyar says.
Hemp, the plant, is traditionally known for its use in textiles and ropes. That’s because of its strength: After about three weeks of growth, a hemp stalk will be so sturdy it’s almost impossible to break, because the fibers are so long and strong. But for culinary products, it’s the seeds that are all-important. After they’re pressed to produce oil, the resulting byproduct can be processed into a flour from which products like pasta can be created. JD Farms has also started cultivating young hemp leaves into salad mixes.
Hemp seeds may very well be the world’s first, and perhaps, best superfood. They provide up to 75 percent more protein than a similar amount of flax or chia seeds and contain all 20 amino acids. They’re filled with healthy fatty acids including omega-3 and omega-6. They’re also high in fiber, iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, vitamin E and magnesium -- basically everything you need for a nutritious meal or snack.
With the changing political and regulatory climate related to cannabis, hemp businesses are on the cusp of exciting new opportunities to expand their business, and to get into the cannabis industry. Whether you’re a farmer, hemp processor or manufacturer or another key link in the industrial hemp supply chain, you can position your business for accelerated growth with membership in the NACB.
And now that the updated U.S. Farm Bill has been passed which more or less legalizes hemp, we can expect to start seeing more and more very high quality CBD oils hit the American market in the coming years. HempWorx has been around for awhile, and they’re simply doing what they can from a business perspective in order to gain a foothold in the industry. In our mind, this should not take away at all from the quality of their products.
