What is CBD?
can·na·bid·i·ol // noun: cannabidiol
Cannabidiol—better known as CBD—is a cannabis compound derived from the hemp plant that has extensive medical benefits. Industrial hemp patients are usually looking for relief after trying most western medications with little positive results, patients are mostly attracted to the relief of CBD without concerting feelings of sluggishness or dysphoria. CBD’s most appealing property is its non-psychoactive results; consumers will not experience a “high” that most people assume. Clinical and scientific research underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions including arthritis, diabetes, Multiple Scleroses, chronic pain, anxiety, alcoholism, seizures, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, epilepsy, antibiotic-resistant infections, and most neurological disorders. The medicine is sweeping the nation offering a natural alternative to those who want to avoid pharmaceutical painkillers and other medicines, that are not only addictive but have nasty side effects.

laws & regulations
Reports claim the demand for consumer goods will double in the next quarter century as disposable income increases in our world’s most popular nations; however, the expectation for our planet to double the production of raw materials (ie: oil, timber and cotton) to meet this demand is not plausible nor sustainable. A fundamental change in our source of raw materials is required for our planet to resume. This new source must be sustainable and help preserve the future of our planet. The answer is industrial hemp.
State policymakers have taken action to address various policy issues — the definition of hemp, licensure of growers, regulation and certification of seeds, state-wide commissions, and legal protection of growers. At least 41 states have passed legislation related to industrial hemp, such as defining hemp and removing barriers, and at least 39 states have allowed for hemp cultivation and production programs. Some states establishing these programs require a change in federal laws or a waiver from the DEA prior to implementation.
Cannibabe™’s mission is to process hemp materials into nutraceutical products that are all-natural and promote health and wellness. We work with 8th generation Kentucky farmers to create a robust, sustainable crop that’s grown outdoors in the sunlight and natural soil. All Cannibabe™ products come from farms under Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, the only federally legal path that exists for industrial hemp production and distribution. This is how Kentucky and about 25 other states have been legally manufacturing and producing hemp-derived CBD products.
President Obama signed the Agricultural Act of 2014, or the 2014 Farm Bill, which included Section 7606 allowing for universities and state departments of agriculture to begin cultivating industrial hemp for limited purposes. The law also requires that the grow sites be certified by—and registered with—their state.
A bipartisan group of U.S. senators introduced the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 that would allow American farmers to produce and cultivate industrial hemp. The bill would remove hemp from the controlled substances list as long as it contained no more than 0.3% THC.
However, the 2014 Farm Bill, signed in by President Obama, expired on September 30th of this year. Although we have to wait even longer to hear the outcome of the 2018 Farm Bill and whether or not it will contain the language we have all been hoping for (legalizing hemp), Congress has confirmed that the hemp pilot program regime, passed in the 2014 Farm Bill, will remain in place. This means that Cannibabe™ and companies like ours, will continue with business as usual.
Furthermore, Congress also confirmed that the Appropriations Act, which offered protection for the hemp pilot program from illegitimate intrusion from law enforcement agencies, has also been extended. Rest assured, you are still able to legally purchase hemp-derived CBD products, like Cannibabe™ in all 50 states. And while the 2018 Farm Bill decision may take somewhat longer than anticipated, we are still hopeful that it will pass in our favor. Many hemp supporters are hopeful that the passage will be sooner rather than later, but, in the interim, you can get involved by contacting your members of Congress to let them know how you feel about hemp and its legalization.

Additionally, The hemp industry was given very unclear guidelines and regulations for production when the federal law removed hemp from the controlled substance list. We currently have lawyers in California and Washington State pushing the issue with the Federal Government and Department of Agriculture for immediate implementation of clear guidelines, licenses and restrictions for everyone in the hemp industry. We sincerely thank you for your patience as we continue to grow with the ever-changing CBD industry. After a lengthy process through Congress, the President signed into law The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (the 2018 Farm Bill) on Dec. 20, 2018. The bill replaces the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2014, which expired Sept. 30, 2018.
Distributing more than $850 billion, the 2018 Farm Bill is an enormous piece of legislation that funds programs such as crop insurance, school lunches and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), aka food stamps. Integrated into the Farm Bill is the bipartisan-supported Hemp Farming Act of 2018. The act’s inclusion is significant: industrial hemp and its derived products now are legal on a federal level, and states may choose how to move forward in this exciting new industry. Spearheaded by Sen. Mitch McConnell, The Hemp Farming Act federally legalizes the production of industrial hemp (defined as Cannabis sativa L. plants containing less than three-tenths of a percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)). The low concentration of THC makes hemp unsuitable for marijuana production, which remains federally illegal.

What is the difference between hemp & marijuana?
The confusion between industrial hemp and marijuana is based on the visual similarities of widely differentiated varieties of plants. By definition, industrial hemp is high in fiber and low in active tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that makes some cannabis varieties a valued drug.
They have a drastically different genetic profiles:
- Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa
- Marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indicia, or Cannabis hybrids.
The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Typically speaking, 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.
Hemp oil can contain trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC. However, in order to better understand why there are trace amounts of THC found in CBD products you must first look at how it is made. Cannabinoid containing oils is made by using a strain of the hemp plant that has a high CBD content and a low THC content. The reason for this is because tetrahydrocannabinol has been shown to counteract the medicinal benefits of CBD in instances of high ratio differences (i.e. very high THC count versus low CBD). Therefore, only specific strains can be used for production.
While there are several methods used to create oils, typically manufacturers use a process called CO2 super critical extraction, which is currently viewed as the safest extraction method for human use, as well as the most efficient way to obtain the purest form of CBD. CO2 extraction is a method in which carbon dioxide is used to pull CBD and all other properties found within the plant and create it into a usable concentrate. The oil is filtered through various chambers under low temperatures and high pressure to ensure that the final product is of the purest medicinal oil available.
99% of the time marijuana 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 in most instances, and only a 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 herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil, since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis. Make sense?
In the USA the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP —The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis Sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
What is industrial hemp?
Industrial hemp refers to the non-psychoactive (less than 1% THC) varieties of Cannabis Sativa L. It is one of the fastest growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago. Over the years, hemp has been unjustly demonized due to its association with marijuana, but this good seed is shedding a bad name. Industrial hemp is marketed a fiber, as a seed, or as a dual-purpose crop. Although market information for hemp is not easily accessible, estimated from Vote Hemp reveal the total value of hemp products in the U.S. in 2017 was $688 million. This includes clothing, auto parts, food, building materials and other products. Hemp is making a comeback of global proportion, promising research as mass interest grows in what many are calling the “miracle plant”.
