About Industrial Hemp
Authentically Hemp is a company providing 100% natural, organically grown, low-THC, high-CBD (Cannabidiol) industrial hemp oil that is sourced, processed, and packaged by Perfect Edge Botanicals, Inc. It is manufactured for use in an extensive array of products (with significant and promising health benefits) to the emerging and rapidly expanding hemp natural products and supplements markets. The recent identification of cannabinoid receptors in humans and all mammals has created a significant demand for industrial hemp derived CBD products. In October 2017, WADA (World Anti-Doping Association) has removed CBD as a prohibited substance for the use by competitive athletes. This opens a tremendous opportunity for the expansion into the sports medicine market.
THE HEMP MARKET
In 1980, KannaLife Sciences, Inc. secured the first license to commercialize Hemp under Patent # 6,630, 507 (known as Patent 507). Fast forward and as the market has been developing, Dr. Sanja Gupta (who was against the legalization of Marijuana) reversed his course after meeting with 6 year old Charlotte Figi who suffered from seizures used medical marijuana to calm her brain and went from 300 seizures per week to 2 to 3 per month. Subsequently, CW (the Stanley Brothers) Botanicals created and grew strain as “Charlotte’s Web”. This strain has a high CBD content and low THC content making it available to cross state lines. In 2015, the market grew to $593,000,000 and then in 2016 it’s at $688,000,000 with projected growth to be in excess of $1.8 Billion or higher by industry projections by 2020. Just remember: HEMP IS NOT A DRUG. HEMP IS AN ORGANIC AGRICULTURAL PRODUCT.
Hemp Research & Pilot Programs Authorized in Sec. 7606 of The Farm Bill
On February 7, 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill of 2013 into law. Section 7606 of the act, Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research, defines industrial hemp as distinct from marijuana and authorizes institutions of higher education or state departments of agriculture in states that legalized hemp cultivation to regulate and conduct research and pilot programs.
Hemp as defined in a recent March 2017 report from the Congressional Research Service:
Industrial hemp is an agricultural commodity that is cultivated for the use in a wide range of products, including foods and beverages, cosmetics, and personal care products including nutritional supplements fabrics, and textiles, paper, construction, and other manufactured goods. The U.S market is largely dependent on imports, both as a finished hemp-containing product and as ingredients for use in further processing (mostly from Canada and China).
Authentically Hemp and Perfect Edge Botanicals, Inc. are preparing and building the infrastructure for this next wave of growth. Perfect Edge Botanicals, Inc. has the competitive advantage of being able to remove the THC without disturbing or reducing the natural CBD levels of the essential oils in hemp.
Their process is effectively done without the use of harsh chemicals. Most importantly, they own all the genetic rights to the plant stock and engage in responsible, organic farming practices. This has been done for seven generations producing from field to processing to packaging and into the hands of the consumer. We use the CO2 extraction process as a non-toxic and safe way to extract the CBD oils.
It has been reported by consumers that high-CBD industrial hemp oil offers a variety of therapeutic relief options for such ailments as general pain, anxiety, addiction issues (including smoking), acne, and insomnia, among others. The National Institute of Health has done recent studies outlining and affirming the positive effects of CBD.
Although the market for high-CBD industrial hemp oil is rapidly growing, and the product is readily available for retail sale (either on the Internet or in stores) there is a quality and trust issue that exists as consumers cannot always be confident of the purity, strength, and efficacy of their purchase. Our farm (located in Colorado) produces a quality controlled process which consistently provides a clone-only product ensuring the consumer satisfaction.
Simply put all humanity and mammals. Children, adults, seniors, athletes, and even pets can benefit from the use of products made with high-CBD industrial hemp oil. The sales opportunities are endless – with markets in the medical/supplement/holistic and veterinary and agricultural industries.
