Q: Why hemp farmers use contract farming?

 

A: When a hemp wholesaler (buyer) enters an agreement with a farmer they establish a contract which establishes conditions for the production and marketing of a farm product or products. Generally, the farmer agrees to provide specidfic quantities of an agricultural product (hemp). Hemp cultivated under the agreement must meet the quality standards and must be tested by an independent lab for purity and quality. In turn, the hemp wholesaler (buyer) commits to purchase the product.  Most hemp wholesalers (buyers) support hemp product production from cultivation to product development, to prduct marketing and sales.  The hemp wholesaler acts as the marketing arm for the farmer and for the hemp products they develop together.

 

 Q: Can farmer’s benefit from contract farming for hemp cultivation?

 

A: The importance of the contract is to establish the business foundation from which the hemp wholesaler (buyer) and the Farmer can establish a working environment conducive for growing and expanding the product line and the global sales of hemp products. Farmers have a guaranteed market buyout, reduce their uncertainty regarding prices and often are supplied with loans in kind by showing their banker the contract for cultivation, product development and distribution. The farmer benefits from having a guaranteed buyer at a specific price.  The hemp wholesaler (buyer) benefits by having a constant supply of hemp seed oil, hemp CBD, etc to make new hemp products which are then marketed to the medical marijuana community, and the general public as well.

 

 Q: Are Hempi’s hemp products raw hemp?

 

A: Yes, Hempi’s hemp products are cold-processed (under 104°F) from raw, live hemp seeds. Hempi utilizes a mechanical process to remove the hard shells, yielding our delicious shelled hemp seeds. Our hemp oil is expeller-pressed from the seeds without the use of hexane or other toxic solvents. Our hemp protein powder is made from specially milled hemp seed cake with the oil removed.

 Q: Are hemp foods, hemp oils, hemp CBDs legal to import, buy and consume in the United States?

 

A: Yes. The case HIA v DEA established that hemp foods are exempt from control in the Controlled Substances Act. An excellent overview of the case can be found on the Vote Hemp web site on their DEA Hemp Food Rules page. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals opinion invalidating DEA final rules can be downloaded here.

 

 

Q: If I recently consumed hemp food (edibles) or hemp oil (CBDs), could I fail a drug test?

 

A: If the only source of the psychoactive THC in your body is from hemp foods, hemp vapes, or hemp CBD produced from United States grown hemp seeds, it is virtually impossible to fail a drug test by ingesting hemp oil or vaping hemp CBD due to the fact that hempi products contain zero THC.

The North American hemp agriculture industry is limited to 0.3% or less THC concentration in a hemp plants to qualify as legal hemp in the United States. At Hempi.com we are committed to providing only CBD products that contain no THC period. Hempi products will not produce a ‘high’ of any kind because that is never the purpose. Hempi CBD and Hemp Oil products are wellness products much like a vitamin or supplement.

Q: What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?

 

A: Marijuana and hemp both come from the same species of plant, Cannabis sativa L., but from different varieties. If hemp and marijuana were people, the would-be cousins. They are both from the same family or species aka cannabis, but one has high concentrations of CBD (hemp) and one has high concentrations of THC. There are different varieties of Cannabis, just as Chihuahuas and St. Bernards are different breeds of dogs.

Marijuana is the flowering tops and leaves of psychoactive varieties of Cannabis that are grown for their high THC content. THC is the molecule in cannabis or marijuana that gets you high. The metabolites of THC are what stay in your blood stream or urine for up to 30 days after use. THC and CBD are very different because hemp and CBD products do not have any psycho-active properties, therefore they do not produce a ‘high’. However, both THC and CBD can be found in both varieties of cannabis: hemp and marijuana. At hempi.com we provide the highest quality hemp CBD products without any THC.

Hemp, also referred to as industrial hemp is a low-grade THC version of Cannabis that is genetically bread for seed quality, protein, oil, canvas, fuel and fiber. Hemp is grown legally in every industrialized country except the United States. The United States is the single largest importer of industrial hemp. This represents a tremendous economic opportunity for the American Farmer and the American Entrepreneur. If you agree with us, please take a moment to sign our petition to legalize hemp agriculture.

Q: How do farmers grow (cultivate) hemp in the United States?

 

A: Hemp is only legal to grow in the United States if approved by the DEA to have hemp seeds, and it is a requirement to be partnered with a State University as a scientific research and development consultant. There are several States such as South Carolina, North Carolina, Colorado, etc. that have contracts with their respective State’s Department of Agriculture to be allowed to imort hemp seeds, and cultivate hemp crops.  This year’s farm bill included the hemp amendment. The hemp amendment does not legalize hemp production, but it does allow for research on industrial hemp by universities and state agriculture departments in more than 10 states that have approved hemp production.

Q: How many hemp seeds per day or what is daily intake of hemp seeds?

 

A: Health practitioners suggest three to five tablespoons of shelled hempseed per day. However, many of our customers prefer more modern means of intake than eating raw hemp seeds.

Q:   How much hemp oil per day or what is the recommended daily intake of hemp oil?

 

A: Some health practitioners suggest one or two tablespoons of hemp oil per day. However, we suggest you question your own personal health care practitioner or dietician about the benefits of consuming hemp products, and if agreed then try adding a few drops of our hemp oil tincture under the tongue.  Most individuals notice a calming of the senses along with increased focus.  Hemp oil is great in breakfast foods like oatmeal.  Hemp oil also makes a terrific base for salad dressings.  Hemp oil is used as a base ingredient in most hemp CBD edibles.  Hemp oil can be vaped.  Some people like dabbing concentrated hemp CBD because of the fresh cannabis flavor in every toke, but no worry of failing a drug test.  Some people are prohibited from smoking marijuana because of court system, probation, or parole.  Often times these people enjoy the fresh rip of a CBD vape or CBD dab to calm their senses and get that nice fresh taste of cannabis without any concern for failing a POs drug test because hempi hemp CBD products only contain CBD.  Hempi products contain ZERO THC.

Q: How much hemp oil per day or what is the daily intake of hemp seed oil?

 

A: Hemp oil contains the most essential fatty acids (EFAs) of any nut or seed oil, with the omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs occurring in the nutritionally optimal 1:3 ratio. This is commonly recognized by dietitians as the perfect balance of omega fatty acids. Many of our customers prefer to take a hemp oil capsule rather than a fish oil capsule to obtain a daily omega intake because fish oil can contain harmful mercury. Hemp also has the added benefit of being high in protein. Hemp seed hearts are one of the most complete forms of nutrition available as a naturally occurring substance.

Q: Why are essential fatty acids (EFAs) important?

 

A: Essential fatty acids are not produced by the human body, so they must be obtained from a person’s diet. Essential fatty acids must be consumed to support brain function, cardiovascular function, etc. More than 75% of adults who eat a typical diet do not get enough omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, today’s diet contains too many omega-6 fatty acids and is not considered to be healthy. This imbalance can cause a wide range of health problems.

Q: What is CBD and what does it stand for?

 

A: Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring component found in hemp plants. CBDs molecular formula is C21H30O2. CBD is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and is undergoing scientific research by the United States government. CBD oil is a cannabis oil (whether derived from marijuana or industrial hemp) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Hempi CBD products and extracts are derived from United States sourced industrial hemp. We consider CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich products to be devoid of THC and therefore cannot produce a ‘high’ but may be able to relieve a wide variety of ailments or symptoms.

Q: Why is marijuana so different yet so like hemp?

 

A: Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis Sativa. Both marijuana and hemp are cannabis while marijuana can be Cannabis Sativa, Cannabis Indica, or Cannabis Ruderalis. Hemp and Marijuana are genetically similar to cousins. Yet both have been genetically bread for thousands of years for distinct properties. Marijuana has been genetically altered to contain high amounts of THC. Hemp has been genetically altered to contain very low (almost zero) THC, but has many other qualities in common with marijuana.

Q: What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and what does it mean?

 

A: The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is defined as a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the human brains and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. Our brains have receptors built for interacting with THC or CBD. Human brains consist of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors which have been identified by scientist as being similar to the lymph node system in the infection response. We are genetically designed to intake and receive cannabis. There are two main types of receptors in the endocannabinoid system: CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids humans produce: 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “peace”).

For millions of years every mammalian vertebrate on Earth has been genetically equipped with this endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is not a new discovery. The ECS has been known to be a crucial system in the body by scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. This means the United States government has known about the medicinal properties of cannabis and its genetic relationship to our bodies own natural healing processes for almost 40 years. Why did they not publish this data or represent the results of this data to the public?

Q: Why have we waited for 40 years to just begin studying the ECS?

 

A: Hemp CBD products have been proven to have tremendous potential in future pain management research efforts to curb the current opiate epidemic. Too many young adults are dying from opiate and heroin addiction. Some will argue marijuana is a gateway drug, but we argue marijuana is a medicinal plant that can prevent harmful addiction to pharmaceuticals. So the time is now for studying the ECS and its relationship to cannabis and our healing processes.

Please take action today by singing our petition or by donating to hemp legalization.
