The Realm of Caring Foundation (RoC) has begun the exciting process of bringing over 3,000 people off the waitlist to start their journey with Charlotte’s Web (CW) and Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil (CWHO). While these are just two of the products that RoC clients have access to, they are the most talked about. The introduction of Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil (CWHO) has created some confusion for many people and we hope to clear that up.
To begin, CWHO is the same product as CW. They have the same genetic profile and the low ratio of THC means that is has always been a hemp product. Hemp and cannabis are both from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant. Hemp is defined separately from cannabis due to its low THC ratio (0.3% or less) and its traditional uses. The distinction between CW and CWHO has to do with the laws under which they were cultivated. Charlotte’s Web is grown under the Medical Marijuana Program rules and regulations. Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil is grown under the Amendment 64 in Colorado that allows for the industrial production of hemp. Couple this with the Agricultural Act of 2014 that allows for cultivation for the purpose of research under an agricultural pilot program. Charlotte’s Web has been independently verified by the Colorado Department of Agriculture as hemp.
What is industrial hemp and how is it defined in the Farm Bill?
Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low- delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration [THC] oilseed and fiber varieties of the plant Cannabis sativa. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug. Section 7606 of the Farm Bill defines industrial hemp as "the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis."
What is the purpose of Section 7606?
The U.S. House passed the hemp amendment to the Farm Bill in order to allow research to begin on industrial hemp and determine whether commercial production of hemp would be beneficial for American farmers and businesses.SUBSCRIBE TO OUR NEWSLETTER
