How is your Hemp Extract Manufactured?
Our Premium extract is created by using clean, low heat, solvent free CO2 extraction. So basically it`s taking the CO2 from the air we breathe to extract the beneficial molecules from the hemp plant, leaving an amazing fully raw profile intact. This CO2 extraction process is also environmentally friendly by not contributing to carbon emissions. It is safe, non toxic and leaves behind zero chemical residues in our products or the earth.

Is Hemp Extract/Oil Legal?
Hemp Extract/Hemp Oil and other agricultural hemp consumable products are considered to be food. As such, there are no restrictions on the sale or consumption of hemp oil in the United States as long as it does not contain over 0.3% of the molecule THC. Refer to Farm Bill 2018.
What is in FreshMade Hemp Raw Potent Blend?
Whole plant, Full Spectrum, Potent Raw Hemp Extract could potentially contain any of the 120 cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, along with chlorophyll, vitamins, pigments, glycosides, flavonoids, ketones, aldehydes, and amino acids. The extract we use is taken from USDA certified organic, American grown agricultural hemp, that is naturally high in CBD and low in THC (below legal limits). Also since a portion of our unique formula remains in its raw state it retains CBD-A and THC-A and other nutrients that are otherwise removed or converted when heated or processed.
What is in Pure Zero THC Blend?
Our Pure Zero blends contain pure hemp CBD (filtered to remove all traces of THC) taken from American grown, USDA certified organic hemp in a base of healthy, Non-GMO, sustainably sourced, organic hemp oil.
Why would I consider using Pure Zero THC Blend?
This blend is definitely milder/lighter in flavor, the chlorophyll, waxes and terpenes that lend the strong earthly plant flavor has been removed along with the small traces of THC. So for those very concerned about taste or positive results on a cannabis THC test, this may be a perfect fit for you, athletes and military.
Does Hemp Extract have any drug interactions?
There are some prescrption drugs (anti-coagulants, chemotheraputic agents, proton pump inhibitors, anti-virals, anti-depressants) that use the same pathway (CYP2C19) as CBD. When used together there can be potential of them affecting one another. We encourage you to consult with a medical professional before making dietary changes.
What is THC?
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is found in most abundance in cannabis (marijuana) plant. It has a psychoactive effect, hence the plant has been highly bred to increase THC for recreational use. That is not to say that some amount of THC may have a therapeutic benefit, (this is currently being studied) However, trace amount of THC found in the industrial hemp we use in FreshMade Hemp does NOT contain enough THC to produce any psychoactive effects. There is 0% THC in our Pure ZERO product line.
What is the difference between Hemp, Cannabis, and Marijuana?
All of them are actually considered cannabis. The term Hemp or Agricultural Hemp is commonly used for cannabis strains that contain very low levels of THC (below 0.3 %) and high in CBD. The term marijuana is commonly used for cannabis strains that have high amounts of THC usually 1-22% and some as much as 98% and typically lower amounts of CBD.
Will I test positive for cannabis if I use Hemp/CBD Extract?
Most drug tests screen for THC. Our hemp/CBD extract contains very little (below legal limits) of THC. However, studies have shown that even ingesting hemp products containing trace amounts of THC can cause positive results on a test. If you are subject to this type of test we advise speaking with whomever is testing you prior to using any hemp derived products. The other option is trying our Pure ZERO THC product line. This has absolutely no THC in it and cannot cause a positive test result.
Will I get high from FreshMade Hemp/CBD Extract?
Hemp/CBD Extract does effect everyone differently. However, FreshMade Hemp contains phyto-nutrients that many consumers report helps them with a clearer calm mind and active lifestyle. FreshMade Hemp Raw Potent Blend may contain trace amounts of THC (within legal limits) and is not enough to create the psychoactive effects associated with THC. We believe that life is about being Healthy, NOT HIGH.
Can I get addicted to FreshMade Hemp products?
According to this statement by the WHO (World Health Organization) “At present, there are no case reports of abuse or dependence relating to use of pure CBD. While the number of studies is limited, the evidence from well controlled human experimental research indicates that CBD is not associated with abuse potential.”
Can cannabis cause allergic reactions?
Just like pollen from trees and grasses hemp pollen or one of over 400 naturally occurring molecules in the plant may trigger reactions in a very small minority of people. If this is a concern of yours, please speak with your medical professional.
Are there any side effects to using Hemp/CBD?
