14 Sep 8 Things You Didn’t Know About HempMeds
1. We Created the First Mainstream CBD Hemp Oil Product:
In 2012, while the rest of the country was focusing on medical and recreational uses of marijuana, HempMeds® was busy developing the nation’s first hemp oil market with our line of CBD products, bringing cannabinoids to the masses.
We recognized the benefits of non-psychoactive cannabinoids and their availability, and we embarked on our mission of bringing access to cannabinoids to everyone, regardless of location.
2. We Sell Nationwide in the U.S. and in Over 40 Countries Internationally:
Regardless of your individual state’s medical marijuana laws, CBD hemp oil is legal to use across the U.S. Because our products are derived from European grown hemp and contain only trace levels of THC, we are able to sell them throughout the U.S. and in more than 40 international markets. There is no need to register with your state or obtain a doctor’s prescription to access our products, though it is recommended that you discuss any new wellness routines with your physician before starting.
3. We Were First to Introduce CBD Products into Several Latin American Countries:
HempMeds was the first company to export CBD hemp oil products into several Latin American countries as a prescription medication.
Our RSHO™ was first accepted by ANVISA, the health authority in Brazil, for import after the parents of a little girl, Anny Fischer, fought the Brazilian government for the right to bring RSHO™ into the country for their daughter. After just three days in court, it was announced “inhumane” to keep RSHO™ from Anny, a decision that opened Brazil as a market for CBD hemp oil products. RSHO™ is now accepted as a government subsidized prescription for four separate medical indications in Brazil.
Shortly after RSHO™’s acceptance in Brazil, a similar story unfolded in Mexico. Desperate to import hemp oil for his daughter Grace, Raul Elizalde petitioned the health authority in Mexico, COFEPRIS. As a result, Mexico decided to allow CBD into the country. However, the ruling came with the stipulation that the CBD hemp oil does not contain any detectable THC. To this end, HempMeds® developed the first hemp oil product with no detectable THC, RSHO-X™, specifically for the Mexican market. The same RSHO-X™ is now available to all HempMeds® customers.
Our international branches, HempMeds® Brasil and HempMeds® Mexico, were created to closely serve these two specialized markets, and our bilingual team is available to answer any questions you may have.
4. We Offer a Complete Line of CBD-Infused Products:
Our product line was designed with our end user in mind; therefore, our products are as diverse as our customers who use them. With products ranging in potency from just over 1 mg to 120 mg, you can discover the CBD product to meet your personal needs in our store. Many of our products come naturally flavored in choices like peppermint and cinnamon, giving our customers multiple options for enjoying their daily CBD. Finally, our products are also available in several delivery methods, including flavored tinctures, infused bath and beauty products, pure CBD hemp oils, vegan capsules, topical salves, and MCT oil blends.
With so many choices in our online shop, it’s easy to find the CBD hemp oil product that fits your lifestyle.
5. We Triple Lab Test™:
As a pioneer in the CBD hemp oil market, HempMeds® has had to create many of our processes and techniques from scratch. This included developing a means to guarantee the quality and safety of our products for all our customers.
Demanding reliability in our CBD products, we set strict testing standards for our hemp oil, including a Triple Lab Tested™ process to verify our final products are free of contaminants like chemicals and heavy metals and ensure consistency in CBD levels.
Our hemp oil is first tested after harvesting. Despite being grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, we test our hemp to protect the health and safety of our customers. After importing our hemp oil into the U.S. for processing, we test it again through ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited testing labs that look for contaminants like mold, mildew, fungus, E.coli, Salmonella, Mycotoxins, and heavy metals. Our hemp oil is then tested a final time after formulation and before being shipped to assure optimal safety standards in all our products.
6. We Use Natural Botanical Ingredients in Our Products:
We know you care about what you put into your body, so we only put the best ingredients into our products. Whether it is the peppermint and cinnamon oils in our Dixie Botanicals® tinctures or the Bi-Bong™ herbal extract blends found in our Cannabis Beauty Defined® skin care products, HempMeds® prides itself on sourcing renewable, all-natural ingredients for all our hemp oil products.
7. We Were the First to Create a Hemp Oil CBD Product with No Detectable THC:
Regardless of how they are grown or what specific genetics are planted, hemp crops will still produce oil that contains trace amounts of THC.
In entering Mexico, HempMeds® needed to find a way to create a hemp oil product free of detectable THC to fit the country’s strict regulations. By isolating the CBD in our products, we were able to create the first hemp oil product with no measurable amounts of THC, RSHO-X™.
That same RSHO-X™ with no measurable amounts of THC is now available to all HempMeds® customers. It’s the smart choice in CBD product for anyone looking to avoid even trace levels of THC.
8. We Give Back:
As part of our mission of “access for all” in regards to cannabinoids, HempMeds® is active in fundraising for causes that further that access. Our philanthropy ranges from sponsoring events like Hope4Harper’s Run4Hope and grassroots campaigns like our #treatCTE movement to donating to California’s Proposition 64 cannabis legalization effort. Whether it is recreationally or medically, HempMeds® sees a future where the human body has unrestrained access to the cannabinoids found naturally in the cannabis plant. Giving back to the community and funding research are ways in which we can help do that.
