Columbian Basin Hemp is beginning with its production of CBD oil. It is located in the Columbian Basin of Washington State, where the company is operated and owned by a family. Columbian Basin is the producer of premium quality CBD oil and hemp plants. It is a part of a family farming operation that grows a wide range of irrigated crops in North Central Washington.
Columbia Basin Hemp grows its hemp and other crops near the Cascade Mountains in the fertile Columbia Valley in central Washington state. Hemp was legalized under the Farm Act last year in December by the federal government. Hemp was removed from the list of controlled substances under the Farm Act which paved way for companies and farmers to produce and sell hemp and its derived products.
One of the most widely popular hemp products is cannabidiol, or CBD, the non-psychoactive substance found in hemp plants. CBD is known to have anti-inflammatory properties that help in relieving muscle pain, chronic pain, acute aches, inflammation, muscle injuries, etc. Many people have touted CBD for its benefits such as reducing stress, insomnia, depression, seizures in epilepsy, Alzheimer’s and even Tourette.
Research suggests that CBD is a potent substance with the ability to alleviate the symptoms of many diseases. However, there’s not enough evidence that supports all the medicinal claims companies are making currently to promote their CBD products.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently issued warning letters to 15 companies selling CBD products for violating the regulations it has set. According to the FDA, CBD is not as safe as people are thinking it to be. Additionally, there is very little research that supports its use and effects, but there are none that show the side effects of CBD in the long run.
The agency warned companies that were either marketing their CBD products with medicinal claims or were not properly labeling their product concentrations, thereby misleading consumers. The FDA recommends consumers to buy CBD and its derived products only from legitimate stores that are authorized or licensed to sell CBD products.
Some products contain more THC than mentioned on their labels. THC or tetrahydro cannabidiol is the psychoactive compound found in cannabis plants. The federal government has set a maximum limit of 0.3% THC per dry weight which means if a product contains more than this limit, it will be considered illegal.
THC is basically the psychoactive drug that causes hallucinations and renders a feeling of euphoria when people smoke weed or a joint. It tends to cause mental health disorders if used for an extended period of time in high potency.
The Columbia Basin Hemp is producing natural quality hemp crops and CBD oils that are highly consistent and pure. The business claims that their CBD oils are rigorously inspected to ensure high quality and undergo modern extraction along with efficient quality control processes.
The rich volcanic soil combined with effective irrigation practices, and near-ideal climate conditions along with the Cascade’s east slopes provide an optimum mix of essential nutrients and water required for growing premium quality hemp.
Since the business produces some of the highest quality hemp plants in the world, they are unable to provide products and their finest CBD oil at competitive prices.
One of the major reasons why consumers resort to illicit products is the cost. CBD is quite an expensive chemical if bought from a legal and legit store, however, the black market for CBD has expanded multifold after the Farm Bill was passed. Moreover, the soaring high taxes on legal CBD products are even bothering the retailers and companies that function in the US.
Many companies are shifting their businesses to other states in order to save taxes which otherwise drastically impacts their revenue. There are plenty of products available in the market now ranging from CBD oils, topicals, creams, ointment, gummies, chocolates, drinks, to other dietary supplements.
While some may be legit and tested by third-party labs to ensure its safety, other products are barely tested, let alone authorized. Columbia Basin Hemp’s highly purified full-spectrum CBD distillate oils are extracted at their facility located in Central Washington. In addition to this, CBD oils contain 80% to 90% total cannabinoids with less than 0.3% THC to meet the federal regulations in the United States.
