As being a business within the Cannabis industry, we understand that transparency regarding the legality of our products breeds confidence within our consumers. That’s why we proudly and publicly provide legal statements about our products, is a result of a third-party lab and educational resources about our premium CBD extract. Simply stated, our CBD products contain no traces of THC and are federally legal given that they contain no traces of THC and therefore are derived from Hemp, not Marijuana.
Marijuana and Hemp tend to be confused with the other person, considering they are both individuals the Cannabis family. This confusion reaches CBD, which is often produced from both legal and illegal sources. At Hemp Bombs, we now have never worked with Marijuana. We simply source our CBD from Hemp, which contains no THC, and is incapable of making a high when smoked or else ingested. During our extraction process we produce CBD isolate, that contains zero percent THC. Since Hemp Bombs was founded, we have exercised the maximum diligence regarding the legality of our practices so we have experienced the support of a highly experienced legal team.
Sometimes authority figures and individuals the media confuse our products with illegal as well as harmful substances. Unfortunately, it has resulted in negative press and false information regarding our brand. Thankfully, with assistance from our fast-acting and knowledgeable legal team, we have now had the opportunity to teach news outlets along with their sources about our CBD to have these stories corrected. Here are some corrected news stories with regards to 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 published by CBS 58 in Racine County, Wis. Featuring movies of our signature CBD gummies, this article states, “Although the oil was recently legalized in some situations, for sale at some stores isn’t one of these.” Our goods are legally available in brick-and-mortar stores across the country, so we are certain these details is untrue. Luckily, our lawyer Rod Kight was quick to clear the confusion and CBS 58 wrote a follow-up article. Patricia Hanson, District Attorney who originally called for that warning, apologized for that confusion.
This news station in Watertown, S.D. published an article stating, “Watertown Police have issued a warning about consumable products which were purchased in some stores, they claim contain THC.” Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules were featured within the article. As the police claim our products tested positive for THC, these were unable to produce lab reports. Our lawyer provided our third-party lab reports to verify Hemp Bombs goods are THC-free, and this news story was amended.
In February of this year, 23 stores in Murfreesboro, TN were closed by Rutherford County law enforcement since they were selling products containing CBD. Attorney General Jennings Jones stated, “If you possess this without a prescription, you’ve broken what the law states.”
In this instance the president in the Tennessee Hemp Industries Association, Joe Kirkpatrick, helped provide education about CBD. Kirkpatrick said, “Unless police force can prove beyond a good doubt this CBD was based on a marijuana source rather than a commercial hemp source, they may be in clear violation from the law, as well as the victims of the action azwseb be entitled to petition for virtually any economic or punitive damages applicable under the law.”
Our knowledge of false news coverage makes us more conscious of the necessity for CBD education. To aid combat the spread of false information regarding Hemp Bombs products, we make an effort to establish educational resources about our products and sustain complete transparency. With every online purchase, we add a certificate of analysis confirming our products usually do not contain THC. We encourage anyone who has questions regarding the legality in our products to explore our internet resources or contact us.
We have seen first-hand how hemp products can help people naturally relieve anxiety, pain, insomnia, and more. Legal compliance has and always will be a main concern. 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 our legal team, we will still help educate news reporters and authority figures about the legality in our industry. We will always publish honest information regarding our CBD products, that are premium on the market.
