Hemp is a variety of the cannabis sativa plant. It is a fast growing plant and has been used to spin into fibers as long as 10,000 years ago. It’s used commercially in paper, textiles, plastics, paint, biofuel and food, as well as a compound in the formulation of health and wellness supplements and topicals.
The distinct strains of hemp used for health and wellness have a unique phytochemical composition with only trace concentrations of the psychoactive component, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which counteracts or eliminates the psychoactive effects.
Hemp plants are processed to extract CBD oil, which is included in the formulation of supplements and topicals produced by Nerovana for its Royal Botanical brand. Hemp and its CBD derivatives are not federally listed substances. They are legal to grow, process and sell in products throughout all 50 states. Products are subject to FDA regulations.
