THC-free  non-GMO
CBD is Available Now

Scientific Profile of CBD - Scientifically, CBD is anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-anxiety. CBD is not psychoactive and will not get you "high" no matter how much is taken. CBD can be purchased over-the-counter and a doctor's prescription is not necessary. A form of hemp that has been genetically modified does not exist, so all CBD and hemp oil derived products are pure, natural and non-GMO. Cannabidiol and hemp is gluten free and non-toxic.

Medical Marijuana – CBD-only products that do not contain any THC are legal and not Medical Marijuana. Many states (including Pennsylvania) now recognize the healing benefits of cannabis and have established defined programs for providing this medicine to qualified individuals. Medical Marijuana primarily focuses on THC’s ability to treat a variety of conditions including cancer, Crohn’s Disease, epilepsy, HIV, MS and PTSD. Two notable advantages of using marijuana as medicine are its relatively low addiction rate and near impossibility of an overdose.

Isolate Many CBD-infused products incorporate an isolate as the active ingredient. Using modern extraction methods, such as CO2 extraction, a crystalline 99% pure CBD substance can be created. The result is a product that is non-toxic and guaranteed to be THC-free.

Cannabinoids and Terpenes

Cannabinoids Cannabis sativa contains more than 100 different compounds called phytocannabinoids that can affect the human body in various ways. Cannabinoids include CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol) as well as CBD and THC.

THC (Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol) – Of the many cannabinoids present in Cannabis sativa, THC is the most famous and controversial. THC is psychotropic and is responsible for the “high” when using marijuana. The substance can affect many areas of the brain including emotions, imagination, memory, cognition, coordination and spatial awareness. THC mimics a natural brain chemical called anandamide which produces pleasure and euphoria.

Terpenes – Additional compounds found in plants that account for aroma and flavor. Science is beginning to show that some cannabis terpenes, such as myrcene and limonene, may also have health benefits.

Entourage Effect – The natural world does not usually isolate chemicals, but keeps them together as a holistic unit. The Entourage Effect is the belief that all the plant’s compounds work better together rather than individually. A “full spectrum” extract takes advantage of this synergy between cannabinoids and terpenes.

We Are Here To Help

CBD is a natural herbal extract and is not a drug intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease or ailment. Like vitamins, supplements and other holistic / natural remedies, CBD is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Because of this, we can present scientific properties, explain current research conclusions and share anecdotal success stories. However, we cannot guarantee any specific result from your use of CBD-infused products.

At Hemp Headquarters, we strongly believe in the benefits of CBD. We will take care in explaining our available products and seeing if using a CBD-infused product will be right for you. We are extremely selective about the companies we stock and work hard at finding the highest quality products offered in the market.

As a matter of store policy, we will only sell CBD-infused merchandise to customers of at least 18 years of age.

Will I Fail A Drug Test?

CBD is derived from hemp (Cannabis sativa). If your employment depends on passing a drug test we recommend not using any Cannabis-derived product.

We cannot guarantee any specific result from using CBD. Employer drug tests vary widely in sensitivity and cutoff detection levels. It is possible, though unlikely, to get a false-positive from a THC-free product.

Trace amounts of THC can build up in your body, so over time it is possible to fail a drug test even though CBD products produce no psychoactivity and are not impairing in any way.

If drug testing is a concern, please check with your employer before using any CBD product.

What Do Third-Party Test Results Show?

There are a number of scientific labs throughout the country that will test Cannabis products to show the percentages of components within each sample. These tests are extremely sensitive and are able to pick up small trace amounts cannabinoids, terpenes, solvents/impurities and other constituents. The types of tests vary and each CBD manufacturer can decide how their products are to be tested.

Hemp Headquarters is a retailer and not a manufacturer. We rely on our vendors to provide third-party test results for all products we stock. We do not perform individual potency tests on each product and keep on file test results provided by the manufacturer.

Cannabinoid levels provided by the manufacturer are to be used as a general guide. CBD products are created through an extraction method that may result in uneven ingredient concentrations between individual products. Though we can guarantee that no products sold at Hemp Headquarters will "get you high," we cannot make any claims beyond the test results provided to us by our vendors.
