What is the legality around CBD & Hemp?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

All Hempture crops are grown under strict government licence.

We GUARANTEE Hempture Hemp oil products are legal to consume, sell, and possess both here in Ireland and in many other EU countries. Hemp oil is a dietary ingredient that is permitted for use in or as a dietary supplement. Industrial hemp products, like our hemp oils, that have been grown in Ireland or EU imported through the proper means are exempt from marihuana and THC laws in EU Schedule. Depending on batch our CBD oil has none or less than the 0.2% THC or less to meet legal restrictions in Ireland, and the EU.

Hempture abides by Irish and EU law. Regulation (EC) 1672/2000 states that cannabis sativa plants containing 0.2% tetrahydrocannabinol or less can be approved for cultivation as hemp.

What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Scientifically and genetically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana can be the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. Marijuana, 99% of the time, has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD.

Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD, and naturally has a low, trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’
Hemp is used for making medicinal remedies, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more. Whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally.

*Our hemp derived, Hempture CBD oil blends are sometimes referred to by people as cannabis oil, as the term cannabis can technically describe hemp or marijuana, and in our case cannabis oil is obviously being used to describe our hemp oils.

Is CBD from Hemp as good as CBD from marijuana?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. Most marijuana has a very low cannabidiol profile, so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable regarding CBD potency because it naturally has such a high amount of it.

There are however certain strains of marijuana that are being grown with a very high CBD content, but this is presently very rare. And the few growers that do have high CBD marijuana strains are struggling to provide for all the people in need due the legal status of marijuana. Our CBD percentage from hemp is still comparable to these high CBD marijuana strains, and will soon actually surpass them. So, hemp is not just an ideal alternative to marijuana, but is most of the time the preferable choice.

 

What’s the percentage of cannabidiol in Hempture oils?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Our base CBD extracts have varying percentages of CBD content. Our main product contains 0.2-03% CBD Oil. We use our own Irish grown crops, and on occasion to fulfil large orders we import 100% Organic Hemp grown outdoors from EU countries, under different climate conditions, so there is naturally a variance in the final biochemical composition of the oil extracts.

Every batch of Hempture CBD oil is sent for independent cannabinoid testing to some of the most advanced and internationally recognised laboratories in the world for HPLC analysis. Lab results can be viewed here.
This however has no effect on how much pure cannabidiol (CBD) goes into each bottle of oil. So if we have a 20% extract, we’ll put twice as much of that extract in a bottle compared to if we used a 40% extract. The final amount of actual cannabidiol (CBD) in a bottle will always be the same despite the variation in percentage.

What’s the ideal serving size for me, and how often should I take it?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The ideal serving size for different circumstances is not exactly known. A crucially important factor to be acknowledged when considering this question is that most of the studies and research being performed on CBD use an isolated form of synthetic cannabidiol.

Our whole plant, hemp derived CBD oil is different, and works in conjunction with the trace amounts of CBN, CBC, THC and other cannabinoids in hemp, which apparently has a dramatically more powerful effect than an isolated, synthetic form of CBD. According to seemingly competent sources, the serving size of isolated CBD far exceeds what’s needed from a whole plant CBD extract, the latter of which we carry.
Also worth mentioning is that the weight of the person may play a role in how the CBD effects the body. A 40 pound child most likely won’t need the same amount as a 250 pound man to gain a similar result.
There is a lot of room for experimentation with figuring out a good serving for you or your loved one. Phtyochemical constituents from hemp (like CBD) are some of the safest in the world, and there hasn’t been seen any major side effects that we’ve ever seen or heard of. So there is a lot of wiggle room in figuring out what works best for you. What’s necessary and what works may vary greatly from person to person.
One last note on this topic that is absolutely worth sharing is that your body will build up a storage of cannabidiol in the body, which is unlike most chemicals. So unlike alcohol, which is usually absent from the blood stream and body within 24-48 hours after ingestion, cannabidiol can stay bound to the cells of the body for weeks. This is important to know because after a few weeks of using CBD oil a lesser amount may be required to gain effects similar to the original servings. So, the first few weeks are a prime time to have a high serving size, and you can incrementally lower the serving size over time while still having potentially equivalent results because of your body’s storage of CBD.

WE ENCOURAGE EXPERIMENTATION WITH SERVING SERVING SIZE. BECAUSE THE RESEARCH IS STILL IN ITS INFANCY (DESPITE BEING SEEMINGLY POSITIVE) IT IS NOT KNOWN WHAT METHOD OR SERVING SIZE IS BEST. AND BECAUSE HEMP PRODUCTS ARE CONSIDERED GENERALLY SAFE WE ENCOURAGE DOING YOUR OWN RESEARCH & EXPERIMENTATION IN ORDER TO FIND WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU.

We recommend the standard dosage – The standard dosage details can be found on the product pages here, in addition to the packaging of the bottles of oil.

What is the safety of cannabidiol and your Hemp CBD oil? Are there negative side effects?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Cannabidiol (CBD), and other phytochemical constituents of cannabis are considered to be generally safe. In hemp’s thousands of years of use there has not been one recorded fatality or major illness contributed to it’s use that we know of.

In high servings some people can experience a slight sedative effect.
In very high servings (upwards of 200mg of CBD per serving) some people experience what’s being labeled as Dysphoria, an unpleasant emotional state. This is incredibly rare though, and has only been mentioned when using abnormally high amounts of CBD.

In accordance with various regulations we can not make health claims regarding Hempture CBD oil, hemp oil, or any dietary supplement. Please refer to an informational source that isn’t involved with the sales of any dietary supplements, and is a trusted educational source for cannabidiol research. People from all walks of life with greatly varying circumstances are using our CBD oil.

New and old studies show the efficiency of various cannabinoids against many medical conditions. These studies state cannabinoids have a healing action against different conditions. Many many personal testimonies, & peer reviewed scientific studies can be found online.

However, these numerous testimonies/studies are not sufficient evidence to convince most of the medical and scientific communities around the world, which need reliable studies to confirm these claims. In order to rectify this matter, we will continue to list international scientific publications, these are drawn from the best research laboratories, demonstrating the amazing efficiency that cannabinoids have in the human body.

 

Do I need to move to Ireland to get CBD oil? Where do you ship your CBD oil?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hempture CBD is formulated from Hemp that is grown under strict licence from the relevant government department.

Many people are under the impression that the only way to acquire cannabidiol oil for themselves or a loved one is to move to certain countries and get on the waiting lists for CBD from dispensaries and such. Many big news outlets are misinformed and are unfortunately spreading this idea, that you can only get CBD in the countries where medical marijuana has been legalised.

Is Hempture CBD hemp oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

They are similar, as the hemp oils and potential effects are similar looking and acting. But our Hemp CBD oil is more highly standardized than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through Ricks method will usually have a much higher THC content.

 
Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC and CBD content of the final oil is always varying greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays. And because our Hemp (not marijuana) is naturally high in cannabidiol (CBD) the CO2 oil extract consistently has a high amount of CBD and only trace amounts of THC.

 
Our product is always made from industrial hemp, and Rick Simpson Hemp Oil from marijuana. Because our CBD hemp oil is highly standardized and the CBD content is always the same high amount, it is much more useful in trying to figure out a proper regimen and serving size. Both Rick Simpson Hemp Oil and Hempture CBD Hemp Oil are being used for similar reasons, and both are getting similar feedback as to the success stories being reported.

Why are hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD oil) products sometimes expensive?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

We use a supercritical CO2 oil extraction, this is performed on the stalks and seeds of mature industrial hemp plants, and the resulting hemp oil is analyzed in a laboratory through an HPLC test. Then the raw CO2 extracted hemp oil is further refined at a GMP certified facility. The purified hemp oil is then again analyzed for it’s potency and purity. And then turning this high cbd, hemp oil extract into our final cbd oil blends is another additional process that takes time and resources. And then a final testing is performed on the finished cbd oil blends in Ireland.

These necessary steps to ensure ultimate potency and purity throughout each stage of the process, and the facilities that are required to perform all the steps, all add up to hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD Oil) products being very costly to manufacture.
We hope to see the cultivation of industrial hemp become fully legal worldwide. There are small steps being taken in this direction, and we are hopeful that process will continue favorably. This would lead to a dramatic decrease in cost for both the manufacturers and consumers of Hemp products, including Hemp CBD oil.

Can Hemp CBD oil get me high?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In exploring whether cbd oil gets you high, we need to make a huge determination here. CBD is one compound of cannabis. Cannabis can be either marijuana or hemp. Either plant can have varying degrees of THC, but hemp, unless its a specialty strain, has such a low quantity of THC, that no one I’ve ever met can tell that any THC is present when ingesting, smoking or vaping any hemp product.

This is key – An oil with CBD in it, by itself cannot get you high. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is merely one of the cannabinoids found in marijuana and hemp. Some others are CBC, CBG, THC, THCA and there are others. And, CBD is not what gets someone ‘high’. THC is the pyschotropic compound in cannabis plants that causes a ‘high’ or an euphoric effect.

So, the real answer to “Does CBD Oil Get You High?” is, it depends on whether there is any noticeable amount of THC in the oil.

To be more clear, at Hempture, we  ONLY provide CBD products that have CBD extracted from hemp. And, the hemp that is used in all the products we carry has just a trace of THC, not enough to cause any ‘high’. So, using any of these products will not cause one to get high.

Conversely, one can get CBD Oil that is extracted from marijuana that will most likely have a higher level of THC. And, unless the CBD Oil is from a specialty strain, the level of THC is most likely going to be high enough to cause someone to get ‘high’, assuming enough is used. Even the very popular Charlotte’s Web strain of marijuana, which is known to be very high in CBD, relative to other strains of marijuana, has more CBD than your average hemp strain.

Will I test positive for Cannabis if I use CBD Hemp oil?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Whatever your thoughts and opinions on workplace drug testing, it is a reality for many employees, particularly those in dangerous industries and federal employees. The answer to the question of whether you will test positive if you use a high-quality, low THC CBD hemp oil is, in a nutshell, “Not unless you use way too much of it”. Let’s look at the facts and see why:

CBD is a cannabinoid, but it differs from THC. THC is the cannabinoid that gives its users the ‘high’, and it’s this cannabinoid that is targeted in drug tests. These tests look for the metabolic products of THC and begin with a simple urine test sample. The test uses antibodies to detect THC and the metabolite it produces, known by the rather complicated name of ‘11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH)’. If initial tests find that you have more than 50 Nano grams (ng) of these substances in your urine, a Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test is carried out to confirm the result. This test targets the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite and aren’t sensitive to other cannabinoids including CBD. There is no such thing as a CBD drug test because CBD is not a drug.

Trace amounts of THC in CBD oil. If you’re using the best CBD oil, it will contain only tiny amounts of THC and you’d have to use more than 1000-2000 mg of the oil every day in order to test positive in initial screening tests. When this happens and the second test is run, the results of the first test will likely turn up as a ‘false positive’. Remember, the initial test isn’t all that sensitive or accurate, and that’s why the second test is run if the first one picks up a positive result.

Bear in mind that the THC concentrations in hemp oil are nowhere near enough to have any effect on you: hemp plants generally contain only a tenth to one three-hundredth of the THC that marijuana plants contain. An extremely high level of consumption of more than 2000mg daily would thus deliver between 3 and 6 mg of THC and this may cause false positive initial tests in 11 to 23 percent of cases.
Most people use a lot less than that and would only consume a maximum of 0.5mg of THC along with their CBD in that case, there is a lower than 0.2 % chance of a positive preliminary screening result. This is perfectly logical since a good CBD oil contains 400 to 600 times less THC than cannabis.

It’s extremely important to use a CBD source that tests the effective cannabinoids presence in the Hemp Oil.
