Health and Wellness
Fortunately for seekers of good health and wellness, one can now buy a hemp-based CBD series of products. Over time, as the health benefits of CBD become better understood, the huge market potential for CBD foods and supplements will be recognized.
Before long, there will be a plethora of food products natural in CBD that will essentially create a new food sector legitimately called “true health food”. These products may supplant products currently found in natural foods stores (reference: http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/04/25/high-on-health-cbd-in-the-food-supply/).
Don’t be surprised that in a few short years one will be hearing doctors (not just cannabis physicians) advising their patients to “exercise and get your CBD daily”.
Did you know that one acre of hemp sequesters 2 tons of carbon from our atmosphere? So says US Hemp Oil’s Christopher J Boucher. Chris was the first American to plant a hemp crop in over 50 years back in 1994 at the USDA Research Station at Imperial Valley California. Chris has helped our developmental team source and produce a CBD cultivar of hemp seed and stalk.

Hemp In America
Today industrial hemp is still not legal to grow in the US, even with 19 US States having passed legislation that, if the federal government would only so permit, local farmers could legally grow hemp http://www.votehemp.com/legislation.html. With the governmental ban, we import our hemp products thanks to a landmark court case where the US DEA lost in their effort to keep all hemp based products out of the USA (http://newstandardnews.net/content/index.cfm/items/1485).
In the US, we currently import nearly $500 million worth of hemp products, from nutritious hemp seeds, to hemp oil and protein powder – to hemp t-shirts and hemp fabrics – but we still cannot grow this vital crop here in the USA!

An excellent report on hemp is found here: http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL32725.pdf
Our developmental partners have searched the earth to find the best sources of hemp that contain certain cannabinoids that seem to foster significant health and wellness properties. They then extract these beneficial ingredients and bring to the USA as hemp oil for further processing. This includes health and wellness based products that contain CBD are now available to health conscious consumers!
