It all started with the 2018 Farm Bill.  What did that mean for Hemp and CBD?


hemp and cbd are not marijuana

In order to understand what’s in the bottle, we thought it best to take you back to the start of the legalization of the CBD industry. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized the cultivation and sale of hemp at the federal level, effective January 1, 2019.

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa L plant.  Marijuana is a different variety of the Cannabis sativa L. plant, differentiated by the high concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).  THC produces the psychoactive effects of Marijuana.  Even though neither hemp nor hemp-derived CBD contain significant amounts of THC, until December 20, 2018, hemp was categorized as a Schedule 1 substance, making it generally illegal to grow or possess.

The Farm Bill defines hemp as the plant Cannabis stiva L. and any part of the plant with a delta -9 THC concentration of not more than 0.3 percent “by dry weight”, otherwise known as “industrial hemp”.  It also removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, and generally left it up to states and Indian tribes to regulate.

Since the FDA regulates drugs, supplements, and food, any claims made as to the effective nature of CBD for the treatment or prevention of diseases are prohibited.  We are careful to not make statements of fact regarding the benefits of CBD and try to offer recommendations based upon information gleaned from scientific, animal or other homeopathic evidence.

The Hemp plant is made up of over 100 different cannabinoids, each having a specific property and interaction with your built-in endocannabinoid system. The graphic to the left shows what is called the other "major" cannabinoids found in Hemp. Just like refining crude oil and extracting out the different layers, scientists have come up with ways to do the same thing with the Hemp Plant. Cannabidiol or "CBD" can be isolated out of the hemp plant and your are left with pure CBD, without any other of the minor cannabinoids. This is called CBD Isolate. The Hemp plant can be refined to remove only the Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, out of the plant leaving everything else behind. This is called Broad Spectrum CBD. And finally, the Hemp Plant can be processed, leaving in all of the cannabinoids, including the legal limit (less than .3%) of THC. this final product is called Full Spectrum CBD. It is believed that there are synergistic effects that take place with the endocannabinoid system when all of the cannabinoids are present. This is called the entourage effect. Following this reasoning, the Full Spectrum product provides the broadest range of all the cannabinoids. But what about the THC? Yes, there is the legal limit of less than .3% THC in a Full Spectrum product. But actually how much "less" is "less"? Zero percent is still less than .3%. The only way you know how much THC is in the product you are using is if you have a lab report on the product. The information on the label doesn't give you the information you need. A reputable manufacturer or distributor will provide you the lab reports, or Certificate Of Analysis on the products you are using.

Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC,  is the psychoactive cannabinoid found in both the Hemp and Marijuana Plant.  As we said, THC is limited to .3% by dry weight in Hemp products.  Since it is measured by dry weight, Hemp products that are heavier, like tinctures, can have more THC in them, than say, a powder capsule.

People always ask, “Will I fail a drug test if I use CBD?”  Now that you have a basic understanding of how CBD products are derived, you can see you need more information to answer that question.  Are you getting your CBD from an isolate? If you are, then there is nothing in it except CBD.  Is it Full Spectrum?  Then YES, you are getting some THC in your CBD product.  Is it Broad Spectrum?  Then you are getting all the rich phytocannabinoids minus the THC.    Most Ingredient labels don’t give you this  information.   Here at Canna Meadows we strive for transparency and accurate, 3rd Party, Lab Reports so you know exactly what you are getting.

I have never really used gummies before, but your gummies have left me relaxed and with less anxiety. They are great at the end of the day at the office to wind down. The best part, I didn't feel out of sorts or "high". They are really helpful as I transition away from prescription anxiety medication.

My back pain went away after the first use of your CBD Pain Patches. I was skeptical at first, but not anymore. I will definitely be coming back to stock up. They are really convenient, and I like the 3 pack packaging.

From the moment I stepped into the bath tub, to the moment I got out, the bath bomb experience was amazing. The scent of the Eucalyptus filled the room and my skin felt silky smooth. I think I had one of the best night's sleep that I've had in a very long time. What a great way to end the day.
