NOT ALL HEMP PRODUCTS ARE CREATED EQUAL
What is the difference between
Hemp and Marijuana?
Both Hemp and Marijuana are in the cannabis family. Human
intervention has produced variation within the species in
terms of THC and CBD levels. Simply put, hemp is designated
by a man-made definition of THC levels at or below
Marijuana is always harvested from female plants and
typically has high THC levels with little to no CBD, although
some strains can contain verifying levels of CBD/THC ratios.
Hemp has over 10,000 known uses, which can be made from
both the female or male plant depending on the desired
product. Mana Artisan Botanics uses only female hemp plants
in our products, with lab testing guaranteeing below 0.3%
Hemp extract is the phytocannabinoid concentrate, created
through some form of extraction process, most commonly
either with super-critical carbon dioxide or ethanol. The
extract's potency will depend on the levels of cannabinoids in
the plant, so each batch of extract will have different levels
Why Should You Care Where Your
Hemp is Sourced From?
The demand for hemp extracts is rapidly increasing in the
U.S. However, there is still limited supply of U.S.-grown hemp,
resulting in high prices that cannot compete against imported
hemp extract from places like China or Eastern Europe.
Consumers seeking quality products may find a lack of transparency
when it comes to the origin of the hemp extract in
their products. And unfortunately, there is limited data behind
the volume and quality control behind these imported hemp
At Mana Artisan Botanics,
great care is taken to source
high-quality hemp that is grown in the U.S., with the specific
intention to facilitate health and wellness.
Do Hemp Cultivation Methods Matter?
In the cannabis industry much of what is grown, unless it
is organic, is sprayed with varying levels of pesticides and
fungicides. Most consumers don't realize this is a common
practice. Given the increasing demand for hemp and cannabis,
many conventional farmers are transitioning their fields
to these high value crops. Yet, hemp's cultivation environment
is critical as it can act as a bio-remediation crop, absorbing
contaminants from the soil while it grows. If the hemp was
grown in poor or misused soil, that plant might contain toxins
you won't want to ingest.
Mana Artisan Botanics
hemp extract only from farms that have never had any
toxic agriculture on the land or use any harmful pesticides
or fungicides. All their products are purity and potency tested
at multiple lab facilities such as Steep Hill Labs Hawaii and
Hawaii Pharm Labs for cannabinoid levels as well as pesticide
residue, heavy metals and other contaminants. State of the
art testing methods are used and THC levels are guaranteed
to be under the federal limit of 0.3%. If you want to review the
lab results, please email email@example.com
Do Different Hemp Strains Deliver Varying Results?
Many of the hemp products on the market derive their CBDs
as a by-product from other types of hemp varieties such as
fiber or seed for hemp food products. The levels of CBD-rich
hemp extract in these products are lower and lack the diverse
spectrum of cannabinoids one would ideally want for an
"entourage effect" that delivers the possible synergies made
available by whole plant therapies.

great care to facilitate high levels of the non-psychoactive
