Hemp, a member of the Cannabis sativa family, can trace its uses back to as early as 8000 BCE. Traditionally, the fiber of hemp was widely used to produce items such as clothing and fishing nets, while the oil was applied for cosmetic purposes.
As the hemp industry increasingly looks to artificial intelligence to cut costs and improve yields, drones are top of mind for many entrepreneurs.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services oversee products containing hemp and CBD ingredients that are consumed by humans and animals.
Hemp was banned across the country because of its relation to marijuana. The 2018 Farm Bill allowed for industrial hemp production nationwide. Each state was then in charge of their own regulation, and now more than 30 states allow hemp farming.

CBD or cannabidiol, a chemical compound of cannabis, is creating a wave of herbal revolution in the medical world. It has a promising ability to cure a wide array of diseases, both physical and psychological. The happy news is, some of the U.S states and other countries have legalized both recreational and medical cannabis, allowing the possibility for citizens to make the most out of the herb.
CBD most important ingredient: certified organic hemp. Once plants have matured, they are ready to be harvested and processed. Next, the terpenes, aromatic and therapeutic compounds, are retained from the flowers through a proprietary steam distillation process, followed by the CO₂ extraction of CBD. This process results in purified oils, that purposefully maintain a complex set of cannabinoids and full spectrum of terpenes present in the original plants. The CO₂ extraction which is being used on our oils, makes sure that there is complete control over the entire extraction process. With unique temperature and pressure settings, it’s possible to isolate exactly the compounds we’re looking for.
Some people have experienced that their CBD oil bottle sometimes leaks and the dropper unscrews. This can lead to oil leaking further into the neck of the bottle despite it being sealed. This, however, is not because the bottles are defective.
Here’s today’s fun fact: the word “canvas” is derived from “cannabis”. (And imagine if the two words had still been identical this past century or so: literature would speak of cannabis-covered deck shoes, of boy scouts enjoying their life under cannabis, of going cannabissing for your parliamentary candidate.) There is a simple reason for this etymology. Among the many uses of hemp, the plant from which the drug comes – uses that include ropes, clothes, food – was the fabric for the sails of ships.
