What is Hemp?

Hemp has been an important agricultural crop for thousands of years.  Hemp was grown in the U.S. from the 1600's through the early 1900's, primarily for it's fiber and nutritional seeds. 

Hemp paper was used in drafts of the U.S. constitution.  

In 1937 Hemp was outlawed along with Marijuana under the Marijuana Tax Act. 

In 2014 The Farm Bill allowed states to begin growing Hemp again under pilot programs with universities to study hemp and how to grow it. 

In 2017 hemp cultivation began again in North Carolina for the first time in 80 years.  The Farm Bill of 2018 legalized Hemp federally as an agricultural crop.

Cannabidiol or (CBD) is extracted from specific varieties of cannabis (HEMP).  It is the second most abundant compound in cannabis.  CBD compound can be found in both psychoactive cannabis (Marijuana) and Non-psychoactive (Hemp).  Legal CBD products on the market are extracted from Hemp.  The 2014 Farm Bill paved the way for the cultivation, processing and marketing of Hemp.
