It is the most comprehensive piece of legislation by any state to date and seeks to set a higher level of requirements for the very rapidly expanding hemp-derived CBD market, which is forecasted to grow to $25 billion in sales over the next few years.

The Wellness Benefits of Terpenes - High Falls Hemp. It has long been known that terpenes, which are found in the hemp plant have wellness benefits.

The Wellness Benefits of Terpenes - High Falls Hemp

However, the study of terpenes and their beneficial effects trace back longer than the recent focus on the hemp or marijuana plant. Terpenes are derived from various plants, fruits or vegetables and their wellness benefits have been well documented. In fact it’s the Terpenes that produce the fragrance and taste of different plants and fruits. FUN FACT: Terpenes originally developed in plants as a way to adapt and ward off predators. For instance, Myrcene which is found in hemp, is also found in the mango fruit and is credited with having a sedative effect as well as being a natural anti-inflammatory agent. It’s been interesting to compare the fragrance of last year’s harvest and this year’s harvest. We are very excited about a new formulation, currently in testing, that combines extra terpenes with our tinctures to produce benefits such as a sedative/relaxant and as a bronchial decongestant.

This is a topic which I have come to accept but bothers me to no end…it’s actually a pet peeve of mine, that the word cannabis is now synonymous with pot/marijuana.

Cannabis... What’s In A Name? - High Falls Hemp

Many years ago, cannabis referred to (and still refers to) both hemp, with a delta-9 THC weight of 0.3% or less, and Marijuana, with a THC value above 0.3%. Both hemp and marijuana are the plant cannabis sativa L, so that is why cannabis refers to both forms. During the recent relaxation of Marijuana prohibition, Pro-Marijuana advocates started using the term cannabis to refer to pot/marijuana, as the term cannabis did not have the same negative connotations as did marijuana or pot.

It is almost as if they were getting people to support cannabis, thinking that this svengali slight of hand, made marijuana and pot something different. The Genesis of The High Falls Hemp Journey - High Falls Hemp. I used to be a Wall Street guy, and I get pumped about the idea of investing in cool stuff.

The Genesis of The High Falls Hemp Journey - High Falls Hemp

In 2017, I started looking to invest in the hemp and legal marijuana industry. I was vetting an investment in a hemp derived CBD business, and part of my diligence was to see if these products actually worked. I had read about CBD, but never found a product that lived up to the hype. We tested and tasted, multiple formulations until we found one that met our standards. Our hemp-derived CBD is a clean tasting formulation, that holds on to all the cannabinoids, while filtering out the residue that can make CBD unpalatable for many people. What do you know? Suddenly, my potential “investment” took on a personal meaning. Now, at the end of our 2nd harvest season, we are reflecting on how important our mission has become and how rewarding it is to be involved in this incredible new industry. Thanks for being on this journey with us! What is CBD - High Falls Hemp. CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring substance found in the hemp and marijuana plants.

What is CBD - High Falls Hemp

It is most prevalent in the flower of the plant but small amounts of it can be found in the leaves, stems and stalks. CBD is one of over 100 beneficial compounds (also known as cannabinoids) found in the cannabis plant. When the cannabis plant has a low amount (less than 0.3%) of THC, the psychoactive compound mostly associated with the marijuana plant, it is defined as Hemp. When the THC levels are over 0.3%, the cannabis plant is defined as Marijuana. Background CBD was discovered in 1992 in the marijuana plant and was later patented by the US government in 2001. How does CBD work - High Falls Hemp. The human body and the body of dogs, cats and many other animals all produce cannabinoids.

How does CBD work - High Falls Hemp

When produced inside the body, they are referred to as endo-cannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with your body through the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is a collection of receptors, categorized as either CB1 or CB2 receptors, which are scattered throughout the body (see diagram). These endocannabinoids are used to regulate a variety of body sensitivities, including inflammation, stress, sleep, and others. The primary purpose of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain balance or homeostasis, which is the key to avoiding many health issues.

Sometimes the body does not produce enough of its own cannabinoids to maintain homeostasis. Ways to Take Our CBD - High Falls Hemp. CBD vs THC - High Falls Hemp.
