What is Industrial Hemp?
INDUSTRIAL HEMP —The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means 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. This has been a big learning curve for hemp farmers, government agencies, retailers and online customers. The more education we have on this topic the better. If you are purchasing larger quantities please ask your retailer to contact us and we can get you an ounce or more at a discounted price.

What is CBD and what are the health benefits of using CBD products?
Cannabidiol (abbreviated as: CBD) is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract. CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive effects such as those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It may have a downregulating impact on disordered thinking and anxiety. Potential uses are the subject of ongoing research. Some conditions that CBD has been known to help with are Pain associated with multiple sclerosis, Addiction treatment, anxiety, depression, Anti-inflammatory, Epilepsy, and more. Among the several health benefits of CBD, the most important one seems to be the ability to protect against neurodegenerative diseases. As previously shown, cannabidiol-rich oil extracted from hemp exerts antioxidant effects and acts as a natural neuroprotective agent, minimizing the effects of oxidative stress.
What is oxidative stress:
Oxidative stress is believed to be the root cause of numerous ailments, including neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, atherosclerosis, heart disorders and heart failure, inflammatory diseases and even certain forms of cancer. At the same time, oxidative stress is thought to be speed up the aging process by altering the structure and functioning of all body cells. While we can’t prevent oxidative stress, we can minimize its harmful effects by increasing the intake of antioxidants. The human body naturally produces antioxidants, but the amounts are often insufficient for blocking or neutralizing the effects of free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that are produced during breathing and interact with other molecules within cells. When the number of free radicals outweighs the number of antioxidants in cells, the equilibrium is altered and oxidative stress occurs.
Exposure to pollutants, UV rays, smoking, certain medications as well as an inadequate intake of dietary antioxidants or excessive exercise can increase the production of free radicals. If the body’s immune system becomes unable to detoxify and to neutralize the free radicals, the risk of ailment increases.
Neutralizing free radicals:
Through its high concentration of cannabinoids and especially cannabidiol, oil extracted from the hemp plant can neutralize the effects of free radicals and protect against neurodegenerative disorders and age-related brain changes. This is one of the benefits of CBD oil that recommends it as a natural health-enhancing agent. Just like any other system of the body, the nervous system is exposed to aging, and research has shown that brain cells are especially vulnerable to oxidative damage and inflammation caused by free radicals. In the young, healthy brain, neurons communicate with one another through electrical impulses and chemical signals (neurotransmitters) that cross the synapses (junctions between two neurons) and bind to specific receptors in brain cells.
When the communication between neurons is altered and the signals aren’t sent properly, due to damaged synapses or depleted levels of neurotransmitters, neurodegenerative disorders can occur. Stress, neurotoxins, drugs, caffeine, alcohol abuse, a poor diet and genetic predisposition can all cause the levels of neurotransmitters to be out of optimal range and thus can favor neurodegenerative diseases.
Taking advantage of the Endocannabinoid System
But even in people with a healthy lifestyle, the levels of neurotransmitters can still decrease due to aging. While we can’t avoid aging, we can minimize its impact on brain’s function and health by taking advantage of the endocannabinoid system.
Endocannabinoids are a group of chemicals that activate the same receptors as cannabinoids and they act similarly to neurotransmitters. The neuroprotective effect of CBD oil is explained by its ability to activate the endocannabinoid system.
What is CBG?
CBG is the building block for CBD. CBG is important because of its numerous health benefits, especially for people with disorders affecting the central nervous system, including neurological diseases, skin disorders, chronic pain, and others. This cbd hemp flower was curated by our team of Cannabidiol (CBD) artisans and handled with care.
Can I pass a drug test using with your products?
YES. Fortunately, the urine drug screen for THC-COOH is known to have very little cross-reactivity to other cannabinoids that are not psychoactive, such as CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), and others. This is good news for “normal” consumers of CBD/hemp oil. That said, individuals using unusually large doses of a cannabinoid-rich hemp oil product (above 1000-2000 mg of hemp oil daily) could theoretically test positive during the initial urinary screen. Although very rare, the urine screen in these cases would likely represent a “false positive” due to other non-THC metabolites or compounds, which may cross-react with the immunoassay. When this is the case, the confirmatory GC/MS test would be negative, since CBD and other cannabinoids will not be detected by the more accurate (and specific) GC/MS screen. Please Note: STARSEED BOTANICALS or any of its affiliate companies are not responsible in any way if you fail a drug test. This might not be what anyone wants to hear, but its the truth so we hope you appreciate our stance on the topic. Below is a scientific response to CBD Hemp and drug testing. Again, there are a lot of lifestyle factors to take into account when determining where you might stand.
FALSE POSITIVE - Whether you agree with it in principle or not, testing for illicit drug use is a reality for many workers in the United States. Drug testing is mandatory for federal employees, and although it isn’t required in the private sector, more employers are implementing some kind(s) of drug screening. When drug testing is mandated, employers almost always follow the SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) guidelines because it puts them on solid legal ground. Typically, there is an overlap between testing guidelines and accepted cutoff levels for drugs and drug metabolites in confirmatory testing and screening.Because THC is widely recognized as being responsible for marijuana's psychoactivity and euphoria, a routine urine drug screen for marijuana use consists of an immunoassay with antibodies that are made to detect it, and its main metabolite, 11-nor-delta9-caboxy-THC (THC-COOH). SAMHSA has set the cutoff level for a positive urine screen in the immunoassay at 50 ng/mL. When the immunoassay screen is positive at the > 50 ng/mL level, a confirmatory GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry) test is performed to verify the positive urine screen. The confirmatory GC/MS has a cutoff level of 15 ng/mL and is specific only to the 11-nor-THCCOOH metabolite. Fortunately, the urine drug screen for THC-COOH is known to have very little cross-reactivity to other cannabinoids that are not psychoactive, such as CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), and others. This is good news for “normal” consumers of CBD/hemp oil. That said, individuals using unusually large doses of a cannabinoid-rich hemp oil product (above 1000-2000 mg of hemp oil daily) could theoretically test positive during the initial urinary screen IF the products carry less than .3% THC in them. Although very rare, the urine screen in these cases would likely represent a “false positive” due to other non-THC metabolites or compounds, which may cross-react with the immunoassay. When this is the case, the confirmatory GC/MS test would be negative, since CBD and other cannabinoids will not be detected by the more accurate (and specific) GC/MS screen.
All STARSEED BOTANICALS PRODUCTS carry only what is considered a trace amount of delta 9 THC, (.03% or under). Please read the descriptions of each product and know what you're buying in reference to this information on this page. Buy and consume at your own risk.
Keep in mind that most of the high-quality, reliable CBD-rich hemp products contain much less THC than marijuana. For example, hemp contains anywhere from 1/10th to 1/300th of the THC concentration found in marijuana. An individual consuming 1000-2000 mg per day of hemp extract would thus consume approximately 3-6 mg of THC. This exceedingly high dose may result in detection of positive urine screen in up to 11% to 23% of assays.
On the other hand, there is some data demonstrating that at daily doses of 0.5mg of THC from 3-5 servings of most commercial CBD-rich hemp products, the positive urine screen rate is < 0.2%. Again, most servings of typical high-quality, high-purity CBD-based hemp products contain well below 0.1mg of THC and therefore have over 400-600 times less THC than marijuana products.
What does all this mean? Put simply, a consumer who uses a high-quality, scientifically vetted hemp-based product is highly unlikely to test positive for THC and/or THC-COOH. However, it’s important to be cognizant that extremely high doses may result in a positive urine screen (that would be subsequently shown to be false via GC/MS). Ultimately, consumers need to be fully informed of the specific regulations posed by their employers and adjust their consumption of cannabinoid products accordingly.
Note: Most research suggests that for infrequent or 'non-daily' users of cannabis, a typical high-dose marijuana cigarette (containing about 40mg to 50mg of THC) would result in a positive THC metabolite screen for up to two days at this cutoff level. However, for routine and regular users of cannabis, this same screen could be positive for weeks, but this depends on many factors including, but not limited to: how much and how often cannabis is used, the metabolism of individual being tested, the route of administration, and other factors such as medications used, liver or kidney disease, etc. This is based on SAMHSA standards. Other organizations' drug testing standards may vary, so keep in mind that the findings presented in this article may differ under alternative standards. If you have any concern about testing positive for THC when using CBD-containing hemp product, please seek advice from your health care professional.
