As a business in the Cannabis industry, we understand that transparency concerning 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 educational resources about our premium CBD extract. Simply stated, our CBD products contain no traces of THC and are federally legal because they contain no traces of THC and are derived from Hemp, not Marijuana.
Marijuana and Hemp tend to be mistaken for each other, since 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 have now never worked with Marijuana. We only source our CBD from Hemp, that contains no THC, and is also not capable of creating a high when smoked or otherwise ingested. During our extraction process we produce CBD isolate, that contains zero percent THC. Since Coupon was founded, we have exercised the maximum diligence as to the legality in our practices and we have had the support of the highly experienced legal team.
Sometimes authority figures and people in the media confuse our products with illegal and also harmful substances. Unfortunately, this has led to negative press and false information about our brand. Thankfully, with assistance from our fast-acting and knowledgeable legal team, we have had the opportunity to coach news outlets as well as their sources about our CBD to get 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 published by CBS 58 in Racine County, Wis. Featuring video clips of our own signature CBD gummies, this short article states, “Although the oil was recently legalized in some situations, being sold at some stores isn’t one of those.” Our products are legally available in brick-and-mortar stores throughout the country, so that we are certain this info is untrue. Luckily, our lawyer Rod Kight was quick to remove the confusion and CBS 58 wrote a follow-up article. Patricia Hanson, District Attorney who originally called for that warning, apologized for the confusion.
This news station in Watertown, S.D. published an article stating, “Watertown Police have issued a warning about consumable items that were purchased in some stores, they are saying contain THC.” Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules were featured inside the article. Whilst the police claim our products tested positive for THC, they were struggling to produce lab reports. Our lawyer provided our third-party lab reports to confirm Hemp Bombs goods are THC-free, which news story was amended.
In February of this year, 23 stores in Murfreesboro, TN were closed by Rutherford County law enforcement because they were selling products containing CBD. Attorney General Jennings Jones stated, “If you have this without having a prescription, you’ve broken legal requirements.”
In cases like this the president in the Tennessee Hemp Industries Association, Joe Kirkpatrick, helped provide education about CBD. Kirkpatrick said, “Unless law enforcement can prove beyond a fair doubt that the CBD was based on a marijuana source instead of a commercial hemp source, they may be in clear violation of the law, as well as the victims of the action azwseb be eligible for petition for virtually any economic or punitive damages applicable beneath the law.”
Our knowledge of false news coverage has made us more mindful of the requirement for CBD education. To help combat the spread of false details about Hemp Bombs products, we strive to establish educational resources about our products and maintain 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 about the legality in our products to explore our internet resources or give us a call.
We have seen first-hand how hemp products may help people naturally relieve anxiety, pain, insomnia, and much more. Legal compliance has and also is a main priority. At Hemp Bombs, we are going to still sell legal products that promote positive mental and physical health to a variety of consumers. With support from your legal team, we shall still help educate news reporters and authority figures concerning the legality within our industry. We shall always publish honest information about our CBD products, which are premium on the market.
