What is HEMP?
HEMP, or cannabidiol, is an organic chemical compound known as a phytocannabinoid and is one of many cannabinoids that cannabis plants naturally create. It is commonly used for anti-anxiety, pain relief, and a variety of other wellness applications. To learn more, read our blog article that's all about HEMP.
How is HEMP different than marijuana or cannabis?
Scientifically speaking, "marijuana" and "hemp" are the plant, which is actually known as cannabis. That being said, hemp is typically the modern term of cannabis plants that contain extremely low percentages or expressions of THC cannabinoids, while offering higher levels of HEMP cannabinoids. Industrial hemp, for example, is only allowed to have a maximum of .3% THC. Marijuana is an older term that is falling out of use due to its many recognized negative connotations. Virtually all legal HEMP products, such as KMRelief's, are derived from hemp.
Do KMRelief HEMP products have THC in them? "Can it get you high?"
All of KMRelief's HEMP products contain no more than .3% THC, which is the allowable amount by the 2018 Farm Bill. Trace amounts of THC in our HEMP products will not get you high, but are likely to enhance the overall efficacy of any HEMP product for most people due to the entourage effect.
Will HEMP make me fail a drug test?
In virtually all cases, consuming HEMP products will not lead to a positive drug test. Drug tests are typically looking exclusively for THC, which is stored in the fat cells. Many HEMP products do contain trace amounts of THC, but unless you consume extremely large amounts of HEMP products, the chance you will fail a THC drug test is very slim.
Is HEMP legal in my state?
Hemp-derived HEMP that contains less than .3% THC is legal in all 47 states, with the exceptions being Idaho, Nebraska, and South Dakota, which we do not ship to. To all other states, we quickly and discretely ship our premium HEMP products. We are proud to legally ship KMRelief HEMP goods across the country.
Is HEMP safe for me?
Yes, HEMP is generally regarded as a very safe product for adults. For more, read this article from Harvard on the safety of HEMP. The FDA does not regulate HEMP in terms of supplements, and many producers use questionable sources for their HEMP. At KMRelief, we only source the highest quality USA-grown hemp HEMP, ensuring you get the best possible product.
Is HEMP safe for pets?
Yes! HEMP is generally regarded as safe for pets as well, specifically mammals, however THC is not. We do not recommend giving HEMP products to any animals other than mammals. Many pets, such as dogs and cats, may experience very positive effects from HEMP.
What is HEMP good for?
HEMP has been said to be good for just about everything - but that isn't necessarily true and it really depends on the person. HEMP has been known to offer healthful effects and wellness for chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, epilepsy, glaucoma, muscle spasms, and more. This is extremely personal and will vary from person to person. Please see our Disclaimers section for more information.
What does "Full Spectrum" HEMP mean?
Full spectrum means that a HEMP product contains not only HEMP, but also other cannabinoids, such as trace amounts of THC, as well as organic compounds such as terpenes, flavinoids, and fatty acids. Full spectrum HEMP is tied to the "entourage effect" in which multiple, complimentary organic compounds created by hemp and cannabis plants tend to lead to a better overall experience with HEMP.
