FARM BILL

What is the Farm Bill, and why is it important?
On December 20, 2018 President Donald J. Trump signed into law the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act, otherwise known as the 2018 Farm Bill. This act contained language specifically inserted by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) that completely legalized industrial hemp and ended nearly 80 years of prohibition on the plant. Hemp is now completely exempt from the definition of the controlled substance act (CSA).

Furthermore, the 2018 Farm Bill clarified the definition of hemp — often limited to fiber and seed — to include the entire plant, specifically the floral parts and cannabinoids derived from it. This put into motion the legal framework for the already burgeoning marketplace for hemp and CBD extracts.

What is industrial hemp, and how is it defined in the Farm Bill?
Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, genetically distinct variety of the plant cannabis sativa. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug. The Farm Bill defines industrial hemp as “the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

The Ananda Guarantee
Ananda Hemp knows and abides by the law and has taken an unprecedented step to stand behind any independent pharmacy that carries Ananda Professional products should any federal agency take action.

FARM BILL

What is the Farm Bill, and why is it important?
On February 7, 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill of 2014 into law. Section 7606 of the statute, entitled “Legitimacy of Industrial Hemp Research,” states that regardless of any other federal law (including the Controlled Substances Act): “If the industrial hemp is grown or cultivated for purposes of research conducted under an agricultural pilot program or other agricultural or academic research, and the growing or cultivating of industrial hemp is allowed under the laws of the state in which such institution of higher education or State Department of Agriculture is located and such research occurs, the product can be made and manufactured and sold as part of the state’s approved hemp pilot program.”

What is the purpose of Section 7606?
The U.S. House passed the hemp amendment to the Farm Bill in order to allow pilot programs and research to begin on industrial hemp and determine whether hemp farming would be beneficial for American farmers and businesses.

The Ananda Guarantee
One of Ananda Hemp’s founders and our Director of Global Production is Brian Furnish. Brian is an eighth-generation farmer from Kentucky and a leading authority on hemp legislation and authored the only federally legal path that exists for industrial hemp production and distribution, which is Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill. Because of this, Ananda Hemp knows and abides by the law and has taken an unprecedented step to stand behind any independent pharmacy that carries Ananda Professional products should any federal agency take action.

WE ARE THE EXCLUSIVE SOURCE OF EVERYTHING WE

HOME-GROWN APPROACH

We take a homegrown approach to farming with our clean, growing process. We start out with a patent-protected full-spectrum seed which allows our farmers to cultivate a robust, sustainable crop. Our team stands in the field side by side with our farmers so that we are integrated into every part of the cultivation process. 100% of our product is grown outdoors in Kentucky soil and processed in the State of Kentucky.

STATE-OF-THE-ART OPERATIONS

Once our crops are harvested, the raw materials are processed on-site at one of the world’s most sophisticated state-of-the-art HEMP production facility and laboratory in Kentucky. Because Ananda Hemp is a completely vertically-integrated company, we can trace each product lot number to the field in which the hemp grew. We can also determine the date of extraction, the farmer who grew the plant, and the Australian locale from where the seed was propagated. This cutting-edge, multi-continental platform is an industry first.

HIGHEST QUALITY PRODUCTS

The FDA regulates the quality of pharmaceuticals by carefully monitoring manufacturers’ compliance with its Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) regulations. The cGMP regulations contain minimum requirements for the methods, facilities and controls used in manufacturing, processing and packing of a product. Our manufacturing is cGMP-compliant which ensures product consistency, purity and potency. Further, Ananda Professional sends each lot of finished product to an independent, accredited third-party laboratory for testing and provides a Certificate of Analysis for each product lot.

Broad & Full Spectrum CBD Oil

The Ananda Hemp Difference

Ananda Hemp offers high-quality and federally-compliant products made with full spectrum CBD oil extracted from 100% Kentucky-grown hemp. We cultivate every plant that goes into our high-end CBD products with organic farming practices. Additionally, all of our formulas are third-party laboratory quality-tested and guaranteed free of contaminants like heavy metals, pesticides, and mold.

We use a highly effective ethanol extraction technique that allows us to pull an array of cannabinoids and hundreds of bioactive phytonutrients from the hemp – resulting in a potent CBD Oil that is truly deserving of the title ‘full spectrum.’

BROAD AND FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL

At Ananda Hemp, we pride ourselves on creating the world’s most pure and potent full-spectrum CBD oils, softgels, and salves. Our most popular products (the Full Spectrum CBD tinctures) are a choice blend of our very own cold-pressed hemp seed oil, premium full spectrum hemp extract, botanical terpenes, and MCT oil (sustainably-sourced from coconuts).

These tinctures are available in strengths of 300mg, 600mg, and 2000mg – as well as the 600mg Zero THC formula (full spectrum CBD without the THC = broad spectrum CBD). You can take our tincture any time of day (see our page on dosing CBD for more information), although we do recommend dosing in the evening when you are first starting.

All of Ananda Hemp’s tinctures, regardless of potency, come in amber glass bottles and contain a dropper applicator with measurement markers (.25, .50, .75, and 1mL), allowing for precision and flexibility when taking your CBD.

Milligrams per dropperful:

300 = 10mg of CBD per 1mL
600 = 20mg of CBD per 1mL
2000 = 40mg of CBD per 1mL

Grown and extracted in the USA, our premium, full spectrum CBD oil is 100% legal and compliant under the federal guidelines set forth in the 2018 Farm Bill.

SEED TO HEALTH

All of our products start their journey from proprietary seeds. Our parent company, Ecofibre Ltd. owns the most extensive private cannabis seed bank in the world granting us access to the best hemp genetics available.

Our seeds are planted in the rich, fertile soil of Kentucky at a latitude known by researchers to be an ideal hemp-growing climate. We always use organic growing practices – which means no pesticides, herbicides, or GMOs – and our products are Certified Glyphosate free.

We work with generational farmers who take great pride in working with our hemp plants. Our crops are sun-grown, planted, and harvested by hand – and depend solely on Kentucky rainwater – no irrigation.

After harvest, our hemp is taken to our LEED Platinum Plus facility (located less than 20 miles from the fields). Here they undergo ethanol extraction. While many CBD manufacturers opt for supercritical CO2 extraction, we find that ethanol produces far superior results for hemp extracts.

In our extraction process, food-grade ethanol is passed through the hemp flowers at low temperatures. During this simmer, we gently cradle the flowers as they mix with the ethanol and create natural friction, producing a vapor that is full of beneficial compounds. We then recirculate the ethanol through the plant matter multiple times, allowing for maximum extraction.

Our sophisticated ethanol extraction process effectively removes undesirable plant waxes and chlorophyll without the high-heat exposure used in other extraction methods. While supercritical CO2 extraction is very selective for a limited range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and waxes, ethanol can extract virtually every phytonutrient found in hemp.

While our distillation process to evaporate the ethanol is very gentle, there is some unavoidable loss of terpene content during this step. To compensate, we supplement with a botanical terpene blend with proven therapeutic benefits – terpenes that occur naturally in hemp.

Every product we sell is third-party tested by ISO-certified laboratories to provide the utmost in quality, safety, and transparency. Look at the batch number located on the back of our packaging, type that number into our CoA (Certificate of Analysis) lookup tool, and instantly see the lab results for the bottle you hold in your hand.

WHAT IS CBD OIL?

CBD oil (also known as a CBD tincture) generally refers to a carrier oil (MCT, hemp seed oil, olive oil, etc.) blended with either one or many cannabinoids. ‘CBD oil’ is the overarching category of hemp-derived CBD in an ingestible oil. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the 100+ phytocannabinoids (plant-based cannabinoids) in the Cannabis sativa genus of plants. A cannabinoid is any compound that acts on cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system.

However, this is only a vague description, and CBD oil products vary significantly in their ingredients and effectiveness.

Ananda Hemp CBD Oil consists of cold-pressed hemp seed oil (which we press in-house, from hemp seeds that we grow), MCT oil, full spectrum hemp extract, and a botanical terpene blend. Our products stand in a league of their own, providing your body with hundreds of hemp-based nutrients such as:

  • Cannabinoids (CBD, THC, CBC, CBG, CBDV)
  • Terpenes (myrcene, limonene, pinene, linalool, b-caryophyllene, terpinene, eucalyptol)
  • Flavonoids (apigenin, luteolin, kaempferol, quercetin, and cannflavin A and B)
  • Alkamides (immune-promoting compounds)

This plethora of benefits stands in stark contrast to the more widespread CBD Isolate p roducts, which lack the renowned ‘entourage effect.’ This term was coined by Ralph Mechoulam (the first person to isolate CBD and THC from cannabis) to illustrate a 2 + 2 = 5 effect, resulting from the profound synergy of ingesting multiple cannabinoids simultaneously.

CBD isolate tends to be the result of a long extraction process that employs the use of petroleum-based solvents like pentane, resulting in a white crystalline powder that is 99.9% CBD. While, in theory, this may sound like the purist’s way of taking CBD, it is comparable to eating ascorbic acid in place of an orange.

Why take CBD oil?

Virtually every animal on Earth (vertebrates and invertebrates) has an endocannabinoid system.

Considering this, it’s easy to imagine how essential cannabinoids are to the proper functioning of our brains and bodies. Cannabinoid receptors exist throughout every part of our body, and play a central role in maintaining balance, or ‘homeostasis.’ Unfortunately, due to the realities of modern living, many of us do not produce sufficient amounts of endocannabinoids (cannabinoids made naturally in the human body) to maintain health and well-being.

Indeed, health experts have created the term ‘Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome’ to describe this exact problem. Many now believe that several chronic, degenerative issues have their roots in this syndrome – meaning that by boosting your body’s cannabinoid levels, you could potentially support various health conditions.

Enter CBD. CBD inhibits an enzyme known as FAAH, the primary molecule that breaks down anandamide – the ‘bliss molecule.’ Anandamide is the most well-known as widely-studied endocannabinoid in existence, and taking CBD allows your body to have more of it. Of course, this is only one way that CBD interacts with your body to promote health and well-being. According to scientific research, CBD is thought to interact with the following receptors beneficially:

  • Cannabinoid (CB1, CB2)
  • TRPV1
  • GPR55
  • PPAR-gamma
  • Adenosine
  • Glycine
  • Dopamine (D2)
  • Serotonin (5-HT1A, 5-HT3A)
  • Opioid (mu, delta)
  • GABA-a
  • a7-AChR

Collectively, these crucial receptors control a dizzying array of functions in our bodies, shedding light on why CBD may be so useful for such a wide variety of health challenges.
