WHY HUMBLE HEMP?
We are regular people that want to make a positive impact in the world and individuals lives.
WHAT IS CBG?
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid typically most abundant in low-THC and high-CBD cannabis strains, including hemp. Like THC, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBG, however, acts as a buffer to the psychoactivity of THC by working to alleviate the paranoia sometimes caused by higher levels of THC.
CBG works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. Research has shown it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Strains high in CBG will be beneficial treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is one of over 110 naturally occurring cannabinoids and is a non-psychoactive component of the Hemp or Cannabis plant. It possesses many of the healing properties without the “high” that is delivered by THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
WHAT IS DELTA 8?
Delta-8 is considered a minor cannabinoid, along with CBG, CBN, and CBC. Like delta-9-THC, delta-8 has been found to interact directly with CB1 and CB2 receptors in our bodies, providing similar effects to the more well-known psychoactive cannabinoid. The main known difference between delta-8 and delta-9 comes down to the location of a few atomic bonds. Even though delta-8-THC only exists naturally in very small amounts, it can also be produced by converting CBD or delta-9-THC by heat, solvents, or altering the PH of the environment.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CBD AND CBG?
HOW IS CBD BENEFICIAL?
The FDA has not evaluated any of these products and we do not make any claims or guarantees about the use of our products to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease. Due to FDA regulations, we are unable to speak about our products without risking severe penalties which would limit our ability to provide quality CBD oil products.
We do have many inspiring stories and feedback from customers around the country on how our products have changed their lives. Many personal testimonials are available online, along with an ever-growing collection of information on this topic. As always, if you have any concerns or questions about your health, you should consult with a physician or other healthcare professional.
CAN CBD PRODUCTS CAUSE ME TO FAIL A DRUG TEST?
The short answer? It depends on the product.
Drug tests check for a metabolite produced from THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol. CBD is a completely different molecule and does not cause the body to produce this metabolite in meaningful amounts, therefore CBD isolate products (products which contain zero THC) will not result in a positive test. Whole-plant, or full spectrum CBD oils do contain trace amounts of THC which may show up on a drug test. If this testing is part of your way of life, we recommend using isolate products to eliminate the chances of failing a drug test.
IS CBD SAFE?
Yes! Not only is it safe, it can be taken by kids and animals. According to a report from the World Health Organization, “In humans, CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential…. To date, there is no evidence of public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
IS DELTA-8-THC LEGAL?
Short answer: yes, in every state besides Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island and Utah
Long answer: It all depends on how the delta-8 is sourced. As we know, in many parts of the country (including Virginia), delta-9 remains highly illegal. Since 1970, delta-9-THC has been classified as a Schedule I substance along with heroin and LSD, under U.S. Federal law. If delta-9-THC is chemically converted to delta-8-THC, the delta-8 is considered illegal. If it is converted from CBD from hemp, then it is federally legal due to H.R. 2: The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Farm Bill. Under this bill, hemp is defined as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.” Delta-8-THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid found in hemp, and remains legal as long as the final product contains less than 0.3% delta-9-THC.
WILL DELTA-8 GET ME HIGH?
Yes. Delta-8-THC is intoxicating, just like delta-9-THC. It is psychoactive and may cause drowsiness and dizziness. Do not use while driving or operating heavy machinery.
