Misconceptions Vs Facts about Hemp

When it comes to hemp, there is a lot of uncertainty about what is fact and what is fiction.

 

CBD IS NOT ADDICTIVE

TRUE!

CBD has no intoxicating effects and therefore zero value for recreational use. Although it is often pursued for therapeutic effects, there is currently no research suggesting the use of CBD to be habit-forming or addictive.

0.0% THC HEMP OIL WILL NOT MAKE YOU FEEL “HIGH”

TRUE!

Hemp oils or cannabinoid isolates(excluding THC isolate) containing 0.0% or non-detectable levels of THC verified by third party labs will not make you “high”.

Certified industrial hemp naturally contains low levels of THC levels; therefore, the psychoactive properties of tetrahydrocannabinol are less present. Prana Principle products are created with oils and powders that contain 0.0% or non-detectable levels of THC. We use a unique extraction process to remove the unwanted psychoactive compounds while leaving the other sought after cannabinoids such as CBD, CBN, CBG, and CBD-A in tact.

Hemp can be used to make textiles.

True!

This plant can benefit us in many ways. As we know we can ingest it and use it topically, but it is also used to make clothes, rope, toilet paper, artificial plastic, fuel, and much more!

Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant.

False!

Hemp and Marijuana are actually from the same plant species, Cannabis sativa, but not the same plant. Hemp is defined as having naturally low THC content (below 0.3% THC) while marijuana has become known for high THC content (typically 10-25% THC), hence its psychoactive properties.

Hemp was used to clean the soil in Chernobyl.

True!

Hemp plants were combined with new phytoremediation technology and used to clean the contaminated soil in Chernobyl, where the world’s worst nuclear disaster occurred. The results were so astonishing that Japanese scientists have considered using the method for Fukushima. Unfortunately, the difficulty in obtaining hemp licenses in that part of the world prohibits them from using this incredible plant.
