Hemp that tests hot needs to be destroyed???This is a hot topic among the hemp industry.

Do we raise the minuscule limits of the dreaded post harvest THC testing to 1%? Does that include THCa and THC? What about delta-8?

This article raises some salient points, especially at the end. Farmers are the absolute LAST people that we need to turn into criminals. Many of the CBD genetics need to be harvested early to remain below the current 0.3% THC levels that are arbitrarily accepted by the industry and authorities.

In my search for top quality hemp flower for our Wellness Sacks, I regularly ran into CoA's that had total THC levels upwards of 0.8%. That meant that THC and THCa levels combined, after multiplying THCa by 0.87 to account for the decarboxylation process, was well over the 0.3% limit.

Biologically, hemp and cannabis are essentially the same type of plant, but grown for different purposes. Varieties called “cannabis” have traditionally been grown for the medicinal cannabinoids in the flowers of the plant, like THC and CBD; plants called “hemp” were typically grown for their stalks and leaves to make paper, textiles, and industrial goods. Hemp varieties also contain medicinal cannabinoids like THC and CBD, but very low levels. Today, a lot of farmers grow hemp for CBD. According to the Farm Bill , legally, the [...]
