Due to hemp’s identity as a bioaccumulator, it is incredibly important that any products made using hemp are properly tested for any outside contamination. HempMeds® does just that – three times over – in order to produce the safest products on the market. Our safety tested process starts at our hemp’s harvest, where it is tested for outside contaminants. Following importation into the U.S., our CBD hemp oil is tested again by an ISO / IEC 17025:2005 accredited lab to check for microbes, mold, heavy metals, and other possible contaminants, as well as for potency of the cannabinoids present. Finally, after our hemp oil is formulated into our many products, they are batch tested to make sure that the final product is ready to be shipped to your door and safely used by you and your family.
And now, onto the thorny issue of legality. The simple answer to the question is yes – if it is extracted from hemp. The 2014 Farm Bill established guidelines for growing hemp in the U.S. legally. This so-called “industrial hemp” refers to both hemp and hemp products which come from cannabis plants with less than 0.3 percent THC and are grown by a state-licensed farmer.
I said the stuff you see advertised ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD – I wasn’t referring to anything that’s “not from a dispensary”. Where I live (outside Galveston TX) there are a few places that advertise “CBD Sold here” and I’ve tried it, was a complete waste of money. I have used Green Roads and I know for a fact it is a good CBD oil that has great results. Just can’t really afford to buy a bottle every two weeks. I had an MMJ card when I lived back in PA but unfortunately Texas doesn’t have a medical program
For some, having more than trace amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) might not be a big deal, but if you’re being drug tested at work, operating heavy machinery, or fall into a number of other categories, you may want to keep the THC to a bare minimum. In order to qualify as a legal hemp product, CBD oil must contain less than 0.03% THC. Look for CBD oil certified to have low levels of, or zero, THC in them. Many reputable sellers do offer products that have absolutely no THC in them at all, so if you are concerned about keeping even trace amounts of TCH out of your body, it is best to look for those products and sellers.
