What is the Difference between Industrial Hemp and Medicinal Hemp?

Industrial hemp grows very tall and it’s fibrous stalks have many uses; including paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, construction, health food, and fuel. Industrial hemp also contains CBD and THC in varying degrees. The compounds are used to make tinctures and topicals. Industrial hemp has very little to no THC (the psychoactive compound).

Medicinal Hemp is a high cannabidiol (CBD) strain of cannabis that contains trace amounts of THC. Until recently the non-psychoactive compound CBD had been bred out of the plant for the purpose of developing high THC strains.  Now that people are realizing the benefits of cannabidiol it is being bred back into the cannabis plant. FDA guidelines state, that cannabis plants with less than 0.3% THC are considered hemp, or medicinal hemp as I like to call it.

What is The Difference in Potency Between the Various FlowerChild Tinctures?

Our Max Tincture is considered a 25:1 ratio of CBD to THC (600mg CBD and 24mg THC per 1oz bottle). From this we make Our Max XP Tincture (eXtra Potent) by doubling up on the extract we put into it (1200mg CBD 48mg THC).

Our Plus Tincture is half the strength as the Max (300mg CBD per 1oz bottle). From this we make our PM Tincture (sleep), our Therapy Tincture and our Pet Tincture.

Which One Is Best For Me?

It’s hard to say what would work best. It really is based on the individual person. Cannabis is a lot like herbal supplements in that it works differently for each person. Some people get tremendous pain relief from higher CBD content while others only find relief with THC. If you have a lot of inflammation I would recommend you start with the Max Tincture.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids or compounds are naturally occurring antioxidants and neuroprotectants found  in hemp. Major compounds are THC and CBD.

Are your products industrial hemp based?

No. Our extract comes from a medicinal strain cannabis plant and does have some THC in trace amounts. Less than .3% which classifies it as hemp. Not industrial hemp that is grown for ropes and clothing but rather a medicinal hemp strain.

Do you ship your hemp products out-of-state?

Yes! Our products have been tested and fall below the required amount of THC allowed (.3%) which puts them into a “hemp” classification. We can ship hemp products to all 50 States.

Where can I purchase FlowerChild products?

Right now we are only selling our products online. We may be selling to Oregon retail Cannabis shops in the future.

Are your medicinal hemp products organic?

Absolutely! We start our babies in rich organic soil and fertilize with the best organic products. Our hemp oils, tinctures and salves are made with organic products as well.

Do you grow the cannabis yourself or outsource it?

We grow most of the medicinal hemp in our gardens here in Oregon, but this year we are also buying medicinal hemp from reputable growers in Oregon, USA.

Do you grow your medicinal hemp indoors or outdoors?

Outdoors, I believe the sun and rain infuse wonderful healing properties into the plants and bring out the aromas and flavors.

Are Your Products Tested for Pesticides?

Yes, we get our products tested for pesticides and potency by an Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) State certified lab – OG Analytical in Eugene, Oregon.

What Extraction Method Do You Use?

We use a food grade alcohol extraction method rather than a CO2 extraction. The alcohol extraction retains the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids resulting in whole plant therapy vs isolated compounds.
