Hemp oil must be analyzed to certify that it’s pure, free from harmful toxins and able to provide the claimed benefits. As with many natural products, the properties of full-spectrum hemp oil can vary immensely from producer to producer. Before you buy hemp oil, learn what to look out for.

Common hemp tests

Hemp oil is usually tested by third-party labs – companies not related to the producer. After testing, the labs issue a Certificate of Analysis, or CoA. And while CoAs by different labs often look different, each usually includes:

  • Potency testing
  • Pesticide testing
  • Microbiological testing
  • Terpene profiling
  • Residual solvents testing

The first test – potency testing – determines the levels of cannabinoids in the product. Hemp oil contains over 100 cannabinoids that have been identified in the plant. Potency testing determines the concentrations of all these cannabinoids, and therefore the potency of the hemp oil.

Each cannabinoid has a different effect on the endocannabinoid system in our bodies. And so, each one can have different beneficial aspects. It’s important to know the levels to determine the potency of the full-spectrum hemp oil.

Tests you should look for before you buy hemp oil

Pesticide testing: Even when grown organically, certain pesticides may be used on hemp plants. The same pesticides that help the hemp survive and flourish could make you extremely ill in high concentrations, That’s why it’s so important to test for them.

Microbiological testing: This is done to make sure there is no mold or harmful bacteria on the hemp that was used to make the hemp oil. Any pathogens that are present on the plants can easily get inside the body and have a negative effect on your health.

Residual Solvents testing: A thorough lab test will also test for any residual solvents. While Functional Remedies doesn’t use solvents in its hemp infusion process, many producers do. And concentrations of solvents like hexane, ethanol, propane, carbon dioxide or acetone can lead to some very serious health issues.

Terpene testing: Terpenes are what gives hemp oil the distinctive color and flavor unique to each strain of the plant. It is from the terpenes that we get flavors like mint, berry, citrus or pine. And they are also believed to have beneficial effects on health.

As you can tell, a lab test for a hemp oil product provides a lot of insight. That’s why it’s important to see the Certificate of Analysis before you buy a full-spectrum hemp oil product.

Many people are discovering the natural and therapeutic benefits of hemp oil. But they also may be discovering that many of these products in today’s marketplace are low quality and ineffective. There are a few important characteristics worth looking for when deciding where to buy a high-quality hemp oil. Let’s take a look:

THE RIGHT STUFF

With all nutritional, natural products available today, the most important thing to look for is the quality of the plant itself. With hemp oil, that means looking for superior genetics so the hemp plant itself can provide the highest percentage of beneficial phytonutrients. There’s no producing this in a laboratory: The plants are either high quality or they are not. Look for companies that offer decades of research and patented genetics to ensure you’re buying the right stuff.

KNOW YOUR SOURCE

High quality hemp oils shouldn’t be handled by dozens of processing companies that may or may not be monitored. Bad seeds from an unknown source or an inefficient extraction process may outweigh quality refinement or another phase of product development. Make sure you purchase your hemp oil from a company that can ensure quality every step of the way. Top producers own their own labs, farms and processing facilities, while maintaining a high level of trust within the industry.

BENEFIT FROM THE WHOLE PLANT

There are a few different ways that companies produce hemp oil, but by far the most effective and highest quality methods are those that offer the wide range of benefits that come from the entire plant rather than simply one isolated molecule. By utilizing the whole plant, users can gain access to over 100 nutrients and other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant that will enhance the performance of the product. This is far superior to many companies providing only 1 single isolate molecule in their product.

GENTLE PRODUCTION

Many hemp companies cut corners with an extraction process that uses high pressure and chemicals to rip apart the hemp cells to gain access to a limited set of molecules offering therapeutic benefits. A high-quality hemp oil will instead be produced with a gentle lipid infusion process that preserves the integral membrane of the plant, making it a more natural and effective product containing the full-spectrum of hemp oil nutrients and compounds.

A WIDE VARIETY OF OPTIONS

One of the main benefits of a high-quality hemp oil is that there are many ways to ingest the product to reap the results. But some companies will only offer a capsule or a salve. Find a company that provides a choice of many different methods, because you may find that one works better for your circumstance than another. There is no need to limit yourself when you can try a tincture, salve or capsules to determine which is best for you. These products are designed to maximize your health, so the highest quality methods show results.

Over the last few years, the market for hemp oil, hemp tinctures and other hemp products has growth at an incredible pace. In fact, experts predict that the hemp market could be worth as much as $1 billion by 2021, with record growth of as much as 55% per year.

This rapid growth means it’s easier than ever to find and order hemp products online, creating more options for consumers. However, it also means that there’s been a significant rise in the sale of hemp products that, for all intents and purposes, just aren’t worth the money.

From poor concentrations of phytonutrients to infusion processes that produce subpar results, many of the cheaper hemp products on the market don’t live up to the standards we set for our range of hemp oils, tinctures and capsules.

If you’re searching for high quality hemp products, it’s important to know what to look for. Below, we’ve listed three key features that you should look out for when buying hemp oil, hemp tinctures and other products to make sure you only ever get the best quality and value for your money.

ORGANIC, LOCALLY CULTIVATED HEMP SEEDS

One of the first things you should look for in hemp oil, tincture and other hemp products is the use of hemp grown with organic and sustainable farming practices.

Hemp plants grown with this attention to detail and focus on natural processes tend to be the highest in phytonutrients, resulting in a stronger concentration and better results for you as an end user.

Additionally, you always want to ask a hemp company about the history of their plant genetics. Not all hemp is equal. Some plants are better for fabrics or rope, and some is better for its abundance of phytonutrients and compounds which impact your wellness. Even within hemp that’s cultivated for its health benefits, there is a wide variety. At Functional Remedies, our master grower and President, Tim Gordon, has been optimizing our strains of hemp for nearly 30 years. Because of his innovation and decades of dedication, Functional Remedies’ hemp plants consistently produce 400% to 500% more cannabinoids and terpenes than any other plant in the world.

It’s also best to look for products that use locally sourced hemp, as these are most likely to have a clean, simple supply chain.  For our tincture and capsules, we use hemp grown from our own farm in Pueblo, CO. No one else has access to our plants. With the highest quality genetic strains available, we make sure you get the highest concentration of phytonutrients and excellent results.

A PROVEN LIPID INFUSION PROCESS

To produce hemp oil tinctures, hemp plants need to be infused into MCT oil, allowing you to easily consume the phytonutrients as an end user.

To save money, many hemp oil manufacturers use a cheap, simple process that can affect the therapeutic value of the phytonutrients. The end result is oil or tincture that’s less effective than it should be, giving you suboptimal results.

For our hemp oil capsules, tincture and salve products, we use the entire hemp plant, minus the fibrous stalk. This allows us to pack as many beneficial nutrients as possible into our products for optimal results and the “entourage effect” from using as much plant matter as we can.

REALISTIC, ACCURATE DOSAGE DATA

Like many rapidly growing industries, the hemp oil industry has attracted a variety of business owners and marketers with a “get rich quick” attitude over the last few years. This means that many of the hemp products on the market simply don’t live up to their promises.

One way in which many hemp products fall short is by not containing the amount of phytonutrients that are listed on the label. Others contain nutrients but lack the bioavailability necessary for your body to be able to put them to use, resulting in few, if any, positive effects.

Whenever possible, try to look at customer reviews and feedback when comparing hemp tincture, oil and other products — for the most part, effectiveness can’t be faked through a misleading tagline or inaccurate label.

With hemp oil becoming more mainstream – being sold in health stores, pet supply shops and online legally in all 50 states – there has been more and more conversation about its benefits with those who may be nervous about integrating an herbal dietary supplement into their daily health regime. In fact, some friends and family members who would greatly benefit from high quality hemp oil may immediately turn down the product because of outdated stigmas that are associated with the plant. But those who have read the many blogs, news articles, social media posts andreviews of independent users finding relief from a myriad of health concerns know differently. In order to share the benefits of hemp oil, let’s go through some talking points for educating your loved ones.

HEMP OIL OFFERS RELIEF, NOT A HIGH

The first point that’s worth mentioning to people who are confused about hemp oil is to explain how very different it is from medical marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are technically derived from the same plant, but hemp by definition contains less than 0.3 percent THC, which is the chemical compound that causes the psychoactive “high.” For the elderly, children, pets and professional adults who do not wish for an altered state, medical marijuana is not appropriate. However, hemp oil, since it is produced from the hemp plant and not the marijuana plant, does not cause a high. While high quality hemp oil is made with the whole plant, there can be traces of THC – not enough to cause behavioral changes, but possibly enough to show up on a drug test. It is important to talk with an employer before beginning use, as there are different drug tests that can administered.

IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL

Another big difference between medical marijuana and hemp oil is that there is no need to have a medical marijuana card to purchase hemp oil.  Hemp oil is completely legal in all 50 states to purchase, deliver and use. While public perceptions of hemp are changing, many people are still concerned about the stigma associated with marijuana, which is indeed still federally illegal. This is not an issue with hemp oil. Hemp has been grown for decades to produce rope, clothing, hemp seed oil that is used for cooking, non-dairy milk and many other products. All of these hemp products are perfectly legal.

WORKS SCIENTIFICALLY

Because the reviews are so varied and so many individuals use hemp oil for different health concerns, it can seem at first like this product is one of those trendy “miracle” purchases. But that is far from the truth.  Hemp oil is effective because it is based in science. Within the last two decades, scientists have discovered the human endocannabinoid system. This body system regulates our endocrine systems, which are responsible for producing the hormones that govern our sleep patterns, pain response, mood and much more. When the body is stressed, the endocannabinoid system benefits significantly from the support of additional compounds known as cannabinoids. The body produces these compounds naturally, but the hemp plant produces plant-based versions known as phytocannabinoids. So, taking a dietary supplement can support the endocannabinoid system, which offers relief for many related health concerns.

FEW COUNTER-INDICATIONS WITH OTHER MEDICINES

Often, people who are taking prescription medications worry – and rightly so – about counter-indications that come from adding new products into their everyday lives. Even grapefruit can impact certain medications! Unlike most prescription drugs, hemp oil has almost no negative side effects and few issues with medications. Still, because full spectrum hemp oil slows down metabolism of certain drugs, it is recommended to discuss with your doctor if you are on blood pressure medication, blood thinners or hepatic drugs that would be impacted by the neutralization of the P450 liver enzyme. It’s also not recommended to mix full spectrum hemp oil with sedatives, since the natural dietary supplement offers its own sedative qualities that some find supports a good night’s sleep.

SERVING SIZE CAN VARY BY INDIVIDUAL

But how much is the right amount? Because hemp oil is a dietary supplement, the FDA forbids companies from listing “dosage” amounts. You’ll never find a “dosage” amount on a bottle of any dietary supplement. Instead, it is recommended that individuals start with a small serving – one squeeze of a dropper for tinctures or one capsule – twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Use a journal to mindfully record any results that come from the hemp oil and determine if it is personally more beneficial to increase the serving size. Capsules are available in 10 mg, 25 mg and 50 mg, and tinctures are available in 250 mg, 500 mg and 1,000 mg potency levels.  Hemp oil also comes in a salve that is applied when needed topically.

HOW TO FIND A HIGH QUALITY HEMP OIL

Of course, because this product is gaining popularity, there are many companies that are producing hemp oil. That doesn’t mean that all hemp oils are the same – in fact, quite the opposite. At Functional Remedies, we take quality seriously. We oversee every step of the process, from seed to store, and that sets us apart from most companies that get their hemp material from industrial farms in China or elsewhere overseas. Our farm is located in Colorado, where we grow plants from clones of our proprietary hemp seeds that we have fine-tuned to deliver the maximum levels of phytonutrients (consistently 400% more) while still having less than 0.3 percent THC. Next, we harvest the flowers, leaves and stems and deliver it three hours away to our laboratory. Our lab technicians then use our special gentle lipid infusion method to soak the plant materials in coconut or MCT oils (depending on the product). This process protects the plant membrane and allows for additional nutritional benefits in our products. Terpenes – the compound in hemp that produces its aroma – and chlorophyll, among others, work together with the cannabinoids to enhance the support of your overall well-being. This combined, increased effectiveness is known as “The Entourage Effect,” and it is not present in other hemp oils that use just one compound in an isolate.

IT’S A NATURAL HEALTH AND HEALING CHOICE

Once your loved ones learn about how hemp oil works in the body, they may be ready to try it for themselves. As people are finding undesirable side effects associated with prescription medication, they are searching for more natural choices to support their overall health and well-being. Hemp oil is a natural dietary supplement that offers a wide array of nutritional benefits and support of body functions that have helped thousands of people feel better and stay healthy. If you have more questions, Functional Remedies has a trained and caring customer service department who is here to answer any other questions you may have.

The amount of time it takes to go through a bottle of full-spectrum hemp tincture or a jar of high-quality hemp oil capsules varies dramatically with each user, as serving sizes can be dramatically different for each person. Still, a common question is how long hemp oil can last from the date of purchase. The last thing users want is to purchase a product, only to be restricted by a “use by” date that forces them to waste the remains of their natural dietary supplement. Let’s take a look closer at what we know as to how long hemp oil can last:

HOW IS HEMP OIL MADE?

To understand how long a product can last, it’s smart to start at the beginning. At Functional Remedies, ourprofessional growers in Coloradoharvest organic hemp plants grown from the clones of patented seeds that have the highest level of cannabinoids possible with less than 0.3 percent THC levels. The whole plant – the flowers, leaves and stem materials – are then transported three hours to the company’s laboratory, where it is soaked in a gentle lipid infusion to transfer the healing benefits from the plant into a medium of either coconut or MCT oil, depending on the product. The lab technicians test each batch for consistency and potency before adding to the company’s collection of hemp oil for sale. Tim Gordon, President of Functional Remedies, has been growing and optimizing hemp plants for the oil for nearly 30 years. Currently, his plants consistently produce 400% more cannabinoids and 500% more terpenes than any other hemp oil company’s plants. This enables us to offer hemp oil for sale that is better than anyone else’s.  

SERVING SIZES VARY WITH EACH USER

As mentioned, serving sizes for hemp oil vary with each user, depending on the person’s age, weight, metabolic state and health concerns that the user seeks to address. While independent user reviews and experience may differ, our recommendation is to first decide on the delivery method that is best for you: tincture, capsule or salve. For tincture use, depress the bulb of the dropper once (the dropper itself will fill about halfway) for a single serving. Begin with one serving (one capsule also equals one serving) in the morning and the evening. Try it for a few days and increase mindfully as appropriate. Salves can be used topically as needed.

VERY LONG SHELF LIFE

Functional Remedies decided to test to determine how long our full-spectrum hemp oil products will be shelf-stable. We used a third-party laboratory and brought them 25 samples of each product, in the same containers as available for purchase. The lab technicians then exposed all samples except for one to high temperatures and high humidity to simulate the environment a product may face over the course of a month. They then tested each sample for peroxides, which is a chemical byproduct that is detected once lipids (oils) start to break down. Week after week, the products were tested to discover that even after 24 months they were still good. After 2 years, we recommend replacing your product only because the oil may start to taste bad.

TIPS TO KEEP HEMP OIL AT HOME

Once the products are open, it is recommended to keep them in a cool, dry and dark place – like a medicine cabinet with other dietary supplements. High quality hemp oil does not need to be refrigerated, but beware of exposing your products to bacteria, microbes or fungus spores. With the tinctures, be sure not to touch the dropper to your tongue or mouth, as that may introduce germs from your mouth into the hemp oil. This is especially true if you are using the tincture while caring for pets. Squeeze the dropper on to a spoon instead.

WHERE TO BUY HEMP OIL   

I Want to Buy Hemp Oil – Where do I start?  

Hemp oil is making its way into tons of different shopping environments. It’s a booming business – We can find hemp oil for sale anywhere from gas stations and boutique stores to health centers and natural grocery stores, in addition to a variety of other locations. To help navigate this exploding market, we’ve put together a list of our top recommendations for some of the best places to find hemp oil for sale.

Knowledge and Education

Your best bet is to start where people are educated. While you can find hemp oil for sale nearly everywhere these days, the qualities of oil can be just as widely varied as the shops selling it. Our best tip is to head to a vendor whose sales team is likely to be educated on health and wellness.

Health Food Stores & Natural Grocery Stores

Health food stores are full of people who believe in the power of plant-based regimens. They’re able to make recommendations and can be super helpful in passing on a good basic understanding of the different products available and how to make an informed decision. Most natural grocery stores like Lucky’s Market, Whole Foods, or New Seasons have good-sized wellness sections dedicated to natural health supplements and products. They’re also full of knowledgeable and helpful staff to assist in selecting an appropriate product. As legalities around hemp oil for sale evolve, more and more health food stores and natural grocery stores will become increasingly comfortable making hemp oil available to their customers. It’s pretty likely there will be an ongoing increase in the brands and types of hemp oil available as well. These types of stores are highly recommended as places to buy hemp oil.

Apothecaries

Apothecaries are enjoying a modern revival. Apothecaries are the great shops where you see big glass jars of herbs on the wall shelves. Staff at these shops are usually very well-versed in natural healing and natural plant remedies. As hemp oil gains popularity and presence in the market, apothecaries will be a great place to go to buy hemp oil as you can rely on solid advice from people who work there. Just as with Health Food and Natural Grocery Stores, the ever-evolving legalities with hemp oils and an increased awareness of quality indicators such as full spectrum vs. extracts, organic, will likely help increase the availability of hemp oil for sale in these types of shops. Note that in the state of California, the word apothecary can only be used for actual pharmacies.

Internet Sales

The internet is the go-to for many who are looking to buy hemp oil. Information and research make the internet super convenient. The downside to the internet is that there’s so much information it can become overwhelming if you’re not sure how to discern between products and producers. We’re here to help sort through some of the myriad of options and information. Our articleWhat is the Best Hemp Oil can help you learn what factors need to come together to create a good quality oil.

Local Practitioners

One option for buying hemp oil that may be easy to overlook is your local health practitioner. Many health and wellness practitioners are learning the benefits of hemp oil and are now offering hemp oil for sale in their practices. A growing number of Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Nutritionists and Massage Therapists are stocking hemp oil for sale. Even some general medicine and family physicians have gotten educated on the benefits of hemp oil and are promoting its use to their patients. For more on how hemp oils are being used in massage, see our articleHow Hemp Oil Can Improve a Massage.    

We hope this guide is a helpful tool for finding hemp oil for sale. You can always give Functional Remedies a call if you have any questions about how to buy hemp oil.

WHAT IS THE BEST HEMP OIL?

Hemp oil is now for sale all over the internet along with an increasing number of stores, shops, and even gas stations. With all the opportunities to buy hemp oil out there, how do we know what quality we’re getting? The simple answer is RESEARCH! In this blog post, we’re going to download you with even more knowledge about what to look for in your research so you know you’re getting the best hemp oil available. To get into the essentials of understanding how to select hemp oil, see our blog postOptions to Consider When Looking at Hemp Oil for Sale.

I Want the Best vs. I’m on a Budget

We all want the best we can get for our money. That said, some of us are more of the connoisseur type and some of us are more frugal minded. Either way, gaining a good understanding of what you’re planning to purchase will help you feel good about what you buy. First off, when we work with a high-quality product, we may not need the same amount as we do of a low-quality product to achieve the same effect, and this can affect what you spend over the long term. This is due to the nutrient density of a product. In this blog post, we want to describe the factors that lead to a nutrient dense, high-quality product so you feel informed when researching hemp oil for sale to determine which is the best hemp oil for you.  

Farm To Bottle – Know the Whole Process

From the plants used, to farming and processing practices, we can learn a lot about the quality of hemp oil for sale and how to discern what is the best hemp oil. However, this information is not always available. This is likely due to the fact that retailers may not even know these details themselves, or the facts themselves may not be very appealing to consumers. Let’s run through some of the steps from Farm to Bottle in order to ensure you’re getting the best hemp oil.

Farming hemp for hemp oil is going on in Europe and the US. The most common plants in Europe are industrial hemp plants farmed on a large scale, planted and harvested by tractors and machines. These plants are often very large stalked, have smaller flowers, and are CO2extracted. This extracted product is then condensed and sent to product development teams around the world pretty inexpensively. The producers create an item such as oil or powder labeled “hemp” for consumers. The origination of the plants, farming practices, and quality details are not made clear to the consumer. It’s also quite possible that the consumer is paying unfair prices because of claims of expertise and quality that are overstated.  

Conversely, there are a number of farms in US states, such as Colorado and Kentucky, who are highly involved from the start. These farms intentionally produce crops with beautiful, healthy, nutrient-rich flowers, that are organically and sustainably grown. This allows a greater amount of control over what’s produced and ensures the product is of a high standard. We like to call this being “vertically integrated” and it’s a great thing to include in your research of hemp oil for sale.

Functional Remedies – A True Farm-to-Bottle Company

Functional Remedies is considered a true Farm-to-Bottle producer. With decades of experience in the hemp industry, Functional Remedies performs extensive research and growing trials in order to understand the various varieties of plants and the science involved in how they work. Functional Remedies runs its own sustainable, organic farm that’s producing incredibly nutrient-rich plants for their product line. The Lipid Infusion process has been carefully selected based on a scientific understanding of how the active ingredients are made available to the body.

The full spectrum of compounds from the whole plant are used in Functional Remedies products, as they’re believed to be more effectively processed by the endocannabinoid system. With over 80 cannabinoids in nature, this means more opportunity for benefit from the compounds available in the whole plant vs. a single compound extraction on its own.  

A lipid infusion process and coconut carrier-oil process has also been employed by Functional Remedies. Research has shown that the human endocannabinoid system is best able to absorb fat. Organic coconut oil is a healthy fat, superior to other oils on the market, such as olive, jojoba, or grapeseed oil. While the lipid infusion process is more expensive than other extraction methods, its ability to produce a higher-quality product is the key factor in choosing this process.

Functional Remedies is fortunate to be able to offer consumers products coming from years of passion and research using lipid infusion for a full-spectrum product that is not from concentrate. Our products are clean and straightforward – grown naturally and organically and infused in small batches in Colorado. Our hemp extract products are high-quality and nutrient-dense, delivered in a high-quality coconut carrier oil.   

Whether you’re a connoisseur or a frugal-minded buyer, you’re now ready to seek out the best hemp oil on the market by researching where the product comes from and how it’s produced. You can be certain you’ll get high-quality products from Functional Remedies, as we absolutely love overseeing every step of the process from the Farm to the Bottle.

If you’ve been following the news lately, you may have heard the cries of joy from hemp farmers with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill. For the first time in the nation’s history, hemp has been clearly defined and legalized. Of course, like all legislation, there are plenty of stipulations.

First, the 2018 Farm Bill clearly states that hemp is different from marijuana, which is still a Schedule 1 drug. While both plants a derived naturally from the cannabis plant, hemp by definition only contains 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive chemical that gets you “high.” While this has always been the industry standard for hemp, the Farm Bill now spells out in law that hemp is legal. This is an important distinction for companies who have been legally producing hemp oil as a dietary supplement to support a body’s overall wellbeing.

The 2018 Farm Bill also lays out the responsibilities of both the state and federal agencies in regulating the cultivation of hemp. State departments must work with their governor and law enforcement to create a plan for hemp production in their state, which then must be approved by the secretary of the USDA. There will also be a federally run program for states that do not wish to go through the process. Growers will need to apply for licenses to be in compliance.

Also, the latest Farm Bill spells out what happens to growers who violate the law. For example, if they grow cannabis that has a higher concentration of THC, their punishment is outlined. Some activities, such as being a repeat offender, can be considered a felony. Still, overall, hemp is considered an agricultural commodity just like any other plant that is grown in the United States. This offers protection for farmers who grow both industrial hemp and hemp that is used for products such as full-spectrum hemp oil.

Finally, with the explained legalization of the hemp plant, the legislature paved a path for further research of the hemp plant. This allows scientists to study this important plant to fully identify and quantify its health benefits.

Chinese electrical machinery, computers, medical products, vehicles and fuels – the products and goods that are imported to the United States from China add up to trillions of dollars-worth of things to purchase.

And today, you can add Chinese hemp to the list.

China is the top supplier of what is known as industrial hemp into the nation. While cannabis was made illegal in China in 1985, with dire consequences for anyone found in possession, law enforcement agencies have looked the other way to hemp farmers and have even licensed farmers to grow the plant in some regions.

Of course, hemp is used for a wide variety of goods internationally. Industrial hemp, which is grown with a naturally low THC content so that it does not produce a psychotropic “high,” is made into clothing, linens and rope, as well as snack foods, beverages and cooking oils. Hemp is also used to create full-spectrum hemp oil or isolate hemp extracts.

While the U.S. lags behind in growing hemp, there are benefits to having Chinese imports. However, there may be cause for concern when some companies use Chinese hemp to create hemp oil supplements, which is a dietary supplement used to support a body’s homeostatis, balance, & overall well-being.

The problem, scientists say, is that the Chinese hemp is not regulated and, like so many products, may result in health concerns. For example, just recently Chinese drywall and Chinese-made toothpaste made headlines for causing serious illnesses.

Also, industrial hemp does not have as much of the valuable phyto-nutrients and nutritional compounds that independent scientists have found a number of therapeutic benefits. If your hemp is coming from China, you simply do not know what you are buying.

When you are considering purchasing a full-spectrum hemp oil, be sure that you know the origins of the plant. Functional Remedies, for example, grows a highly specialized strain of hemp on its state-of-the-art, farm in Colorado. Grown with organic and sustainable farming practices, these plants are then harvested and processed by technicians in a laboratory also located in Colorado.
