    NOT ALL HEMP PRODUCTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

    What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

    By Mana Artisan Botanics

    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 0.3%.

    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% THC levels.

    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 of cannabinoids.

    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 extracts.

    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 source CBD-rich 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 info@manabotanics.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.

    Mana Artisan Botanics' hemp is grown with great care to facilitate high levels of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
