04 Jul A Safe and Happy 4th of July from the HempMeds® Family to Yours
It’s the July 4th holiday, and Americans everywhere are taking to the roads to commemorate our nation’s birthday, gather with friends and family, and enjoy the freedoms our nation affords us.
During this time of celebration, HempMeds® would like to take a moment to honor our country and its citizens and say thank you for all those who continue to make the CBD hemp oil marketplace accessible to everyone, nationwide.
For decades, all hemp cultivation in America was prohibited on a federal level, part of the country’s extensive war on drugs that lumped hemp, and its myriad of uses, in with its psychoactive cousin marijuana. This policy kept Americans from taking advantage of hemp’s many benefits and uses.
Now, through the hard work of farmers, activists, and forward-thinking lawmakers, the hemp industry is returning to America. Hemp products, including CBD oil supplements like those from HempMeds®, are federally legal to manufacture, distribute, and use throughout the U.S.
Thanks to the 2014 Farm Bill, hemp cultivation is also gaining a foothold in America for the first time since WWII. The bill authorized the farming of hemp within state-level pilot research programs. The goals of these programs, in states like Kentucky, New York, and Virginia, is to regain the knowledge and skills necessary to introduce hemp cultivation at a national level.
However, growing hemp for commercial use is still banned federally in America. It is for this reason that HempMeds® sources our hemp internationally from Europe. When the U.S. once again adjusts its policy regarding domestic hemp cultivation, HempMeds® will examine local sources.
For a country like the U.S. that was originally founded on a need for hemp cultivation from English colonies, this return to our roots in hemp is an encouraging development. Hemp is a sustainably smart source of products like rope, cloth, paper, canvas, building supplies, bioplastics, biofuels, and of course, CBD hemp oil.
Hemp-derived goods are more popular and readily available than ever before in the U.S. – including CBD hemp oil supplements. In fact, HempMeds® hemp oil products are now more accessible than ever before. That is because we have reduced prices throughout our store, in some cases as much as 40%, passing sizable savings on to you, our customers.
Regardless of how you choose to spend the holiday, we wish you a safe and happy 4th of July. Learn more about hemp on our education page, or shop our online store today to get started with a hemp oil supplement.
