Yes, all products on our website are legal because they contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the definition of marijuana in the CSA, this change streamlined the process for researchers to study certain cannabis derivatives that have no more than 0.3% Delta 9 THC by dry weight, including cannabinoids such as CBD. While all products are federally legal, please check your local and state laws for rules and regulations prior to purchasing.
Hemp and marijuana both live in the cannabis family but are exceedingly different. Cannabis plants that contain 0.3% Delta 9 THC or more at harvest are automatically classified as marijuana. Marijuana plants contain little CBD, if any, with high trace amounts of THC. Cannabis plants that contain 0.3% or less of Delta 9 THC are called hemp plants. Hemp plants used for CBD products are bred to contain low trace amounts of Delta 9 THC and high trace amounts of CBD. The 2018 Farm Bill made it legal to grow hemp plants containing 0.3% or less Delta 9 THC throughout the United States. It also made hemp-derived CBD products federally legal.
Full-Spectrum CBD: This type of CBD product contains THC, terpenes, and CBD. While full-spectrum CBD products are federally legal due to the product containing less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC, there is a higher risk of testing positive should one take a drug test. In states where cannabis is fully legal, one may also be able to find full-spectrum products with higher levels of THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD: In addition to CBD, this product contains terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, and CBN that are produced by the hemp plant.
Isolate CBD: Your pure CBD product. Isolate CBD products contain no terpene or THC compounds, only the CBD compound itself.
Please note that a product may state it is THC Free. This does not mean the product is a CBD Isolate. A product that is CBD Isolate will state this directly on the label.
Terpenes are secreted in the same glands that produce cannabinoids, like that of THC and CBD. They are the aromatic oils that color hemp varieties with distinctive flavors. The development of terpenes in hemp plants is for adaptive purposes: repelling predators and luring pollinators. Climate, weather, age, maturity, fertilizers, soil type, and time of day are all factors that play a key role in a hemp plant’s development of terpenes. Furthermore, terpenes are an important factor in differentiating the effects of various hemp strains.
Did you know terpenes are even found in fruits and vegetables? Terpenes are responsible for the way most plants smell.
Many drug tests measure a person’s level of THC. Unbent Hemp (unbenthemp.com) cannot guarantee that THC will be absent in a drug test. Please note Delta 8, Delta 9, Delta 10, THC-O, and HHC are all considered strains of THC. For questions regarding drug testing standards, please contact your local testing lab.
