13 Things You Should Know Before We Get Started

READ

  1. Cannabis is not something new. Cannabis sativa L. has been cultivated in China for over 4000 years for use as a fiber, food, and medicine.  It’s just a plant.
  2. Cannabis Sativa L produces 2 plants: hemp and marijuana
  3. CBD (cannabidiol) is produced by both plants
  4. The hemp plant usually contains less than 1% THC, and to be federally legal it must contain less than 0.3%.  It cannot get you “high.”
  5. The marijuana plant usually contains more than 1% THC, the cannabinoid that will get you “high.”
  6. When referencing CBD, cannabidiol, we are not talking about cannabis marijuana. We are talking about cannabis  hemp and the CBD that comes from the hemp plant.  You can also find hemp products in your local grocery store that do not contain CBD (hemp seed oil, hemp hearts, hemp protein etc.) Restart CBD product contain CBD made from industrial grade hemp.
  7. Hemp is legal in the US and is not considered a drug.
  8. RESTART CBD comes from the legal, non-intoxicating hemp plant. RESTART CBD’s Signature Line including Replenish, Recover, Relax, Remedy contain no THC. Other products may contain <0.3% THC.
  9. In December the, 2018 Farm Bill was signed into law.  Not only did this de-schedule  and permanently remove HEMP from the Federal Controlled Substance Act (CSA), industrial hemp is now classified as an agricultural commodity.  In June 2016, Gov. Greg Abbott signed a bill legalizing the cultivation and processing of industrial hemp in Texas.
  10. Hemp and CBD work with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Through the Endocannabinoid System, cannabinoid-rich hemp can help regulate homeostasis within the body.
  11. The most known and beneficial cannabinoid within Hemp is CBD (Cannabidiol).
  12. Other beneficial cannabinoids found in hemp include CBN, CBG, CBC, Terpenes and Flavonoids. What is CBG?
  13. Regarding drug testing, we cannot make any claims on whether or not any of our products will show up on a drug test. Pure  CBD isolate products have NO THC. Full spectrum products, including CBD Flower,  are full spectrum CBD and contain less than 0.3%. We are not legally able to make any guarantees or recommendations or regarding drug tests on THC free or Full Spectrum products. If that is a concern, we would recommend not consuming any CBD products and/or doing some further research at ProjectCBD.org, before making the decision to consume any CBD.

HEMP FACTS


Archaeologists found remnants of hemp fabric dating back to 8,000 BC from ancient Mesopotamia.

Hemp was one of the first domestically-cultivated plants for textile fiber and has many applications, including paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, construction, health food, and fuel.


Hemp can generate as much paper a year as four acres of trees.

Due to hemp’s deep roots, it can grow easily in many different types of soil and environments. The roots help hold the soil together, which prevents soil erosion. Furthermore, hemp increases the microbial content of the soil, so after harvesting, the plants can be returned to the soil to rejuvenate it for a more abundant yield.


Besides soil health, hemp can be used to create durable, clean plastics.

Plastic made from hemp is biodegradable and non-toxic. Hempcrete is another substantial product made from hemp, which is used for structural buildings and is fully recyclable, pest resistant, and strong.


Not only is hemp used for buildings, but also for fuel.

Oil from hemp seed can be converted to biodiesel at a 97 percent efficiency rate and burns at a lower temperature than any other biofuel. Hemp has such a high carbon-dioxide uptake that it creates carbon sequestration, which means it can capture emissions. Hemp is an amazing, versatile plant with many benefits beyond healing the human body — it heals the earth.
