As a business in the Cannabis industry, we realize that transparency regarding the legality of our products breeds confidence in our consumers. That’s why we proudly and publicly provide legal statements about our products, is a result of a third-party lab and academic resources about our premium CBD extract. Simply stated, our CBD products contain no traces of THC and are federally legal since they contain no traces of THC and they are derived from Hemp, not Marijuana.
Marijuana and Hemp are frequently confused with the other person, considering they are both people in the Cannabis family. This confusion extends to CBD, which is often based on both legal and illegal sources. At Hemp Bombs, we now have never worked with Marijuana. We only source our CBD from Hemp, containing no THC, and is also incapable of creating a high when smoked or else ingested. During our extraction process we produce CBD isolate, which contains zero percent THC. Since Coupon was founded, we have exercised the utmost diligence about the legality in our practices and we have experienced the support of a highly experienced legal team.
Sometimes authority figures and members of the media confuse our products with illegal as well as harmful substances. Unfortunately, this has resulted in negative press and false information about our brand. Thankfully, with the help of our fast-acting and knowledgeable legal team, we now have been able to coach news outlets as well as their sources about our CBD to have these stories corrected. Here are a few corrected news stories concerning the legality of Hemp Bombs’ CBD:
CBS 58 – “Racine County District Attorney warns against sale of CBD Gummies, Oil at convenience stores”
This story was authored by CBS 58 in Racine County, Wis. Featuring video clips of our signature CBD gummies, this article states, “Although the oil was recently legalized in some situations, being sold at some stores isn’t one of these.” Our items are legally available in brick-and-mortar stores across the country, so that we are certain this info is untrue. Luckily, our lawyer Rod Kight was quick to get rid of the confusion and CBS 58 wrote a follow-up article. Patricia Hanson, District Attorney who originally called for that warning, apologized for your confusion.
This news station in Watertown, S.D. published an article stating, “Watertown Police have issued a stern warning about consumable products which were available in some stores, they say contain THC.” Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules were featured within the article. Whilst the police claim our products tested positive for THC, these people were struggling to produce lab reports. Our lawyer provided our third-party lab reports to ensure Hemp Bombs goods are THC-free, and this news story was amended.
In February with this year, 23 stores in Murfreesboro, TN were closed by Rutherford County police force since they were selling products containing CBD. Attorney General Jennings Jones stated, “If you have this without a prescription, you’ve broken what the law states.”
In cases like this the president in the Tennessee Hemp Industries Association, Joe Kirkpatrick, helped provide education about CBD. Kirkpatrick said, “Unless police force can prove beyond a fair doubt this CBD was produced from a marijuana source instead of an industrial hemp source, they are in clear violation of the law, and the victims with this action azwseb be eligible to petition for just about any economic and punitive damages applicable underneath the law.”
Our experience with false news coverage has created us more mindful of the requirement for CBD education. To aid combat the spread of false information regarding Hemp Bombs products, we attempt to establish educational resources about our products and keep complete transparency. With every online purchase, we include a certificate of analysis confirming our products usually do not contain THC. We encourage those who have questions on the legality of our products to learn our websites or give us a call.
We percieve first-hand how hemp products may help people naturally relieve anxiety, pain, insomnia, and more. Legal compliance has and also will be a main priority. At Hemp Bombs, we shall still sell legal products which promote positive mental and physical health to a wide range of consumers. With support from the legal team, we are going to carry on and help educate news reporters and authority figures about the legality within our industry. We shall always publish honest information about our CBD products, that are premium on the market.
