QUESTIONS ABOUT HEMP AND CBD THAT WE HEAR THE MOST!
Q: WHAT IS HEMP? IS IT THE SAME THING AS MARIJUANA?
Hemp is a variety of the plant species Cannabis Sativa, the same as marijuana. Hemp is defined by legislation as any variety containing less than 0.3% THC (the compound in the plant most commonly associated with getting a person high). Marijuana contains 0.3% THC or more.
Q: ARE HEMP SEED OIL AND HEMP EXTRACT THE SAME THING?
No! Known for its powerful moisturizing properties, hemp seed oil is pressed from the seed of the hemp (cannabis) plant irrespective of the strain of cannabis and has been available in health food stores for decades. Hemp extract typically refers to the oil extracted from the stalk, leaves, seeds and/or flowers of the hemp (cannabis) plant that contains cannabinoids, including CBD.
Q: SO ARE HEMP EXTRACT AND CBD THE SAME THING?
No, they are not! Hemp extract contains cannabinoids, whereas CBD is a cannabinoid.
Q: WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for Cannabidiol (now you know why they use an acronym). It's 1 of over 100 known active cannabinoids (compounds) that have been known for centuries to have an effect on the human body.
Q: WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
CBD has been promoted as a treatment for various ailments and diseases. Few of these claims have been proven to the satisfaction of the scientific community yet, but we can't ignore that many people experience meaningful relief.
Q: HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
In our experience, everyone's needs are unique and depend on their personal situation. We've formulated all HATH products so that a single serving is an effective dose for the average person. Some clients use double or triple the serving size — we encourage you to explore for yourself and figure out the dose that works best for you.
Q: IS IT SAFE?
For this question, we look to the experts in the field — according to the World Health Organization, "CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile. Reported adverse effects may be as a result of drug-drug interactions between CBD and patients' existing medications." At HATH we play it safe and encourage our customers to consult their doctor before taking hemp products if they are taking any other medications. https://www.who.int/medicines/access/controlled-substances/5.2_CBD.pdf
Q: EVERYONE SAYS THEIRS IS SAFE - HOW ARE YOU DIFFERENT?
We know there is a lot of confusion in the market, so we've taken extra steps to help you feel good about trusting HATH. All of our products come from CBD-rich hemp, organically grown in the US with the highest manufacturing standards and rigid 3rd-party testing. We stand by our products, but we know you want transparency when it comes to your health, so we've put a QR code on all of our products so you can read the results right from your phone — one less thing to stress about!
Q: HOW DO I READ THE RESULTS? GREAT THAT YOU TEST, BUT WHAT AM I LOOKING AT?
Reading and interpreting these lab results can be tricky, so we want to help. For every 3rd-party lab result we receive, we create an easy-to-understand summary of the results. As with any supplement, there are normal variations in test results and the final results shown may vary higher or lower than the labeled amount. This is expected, and while sharing this nuance may be confusing, we believe that it's always better to be completely transparent.
