Happy National Hemp Day!

What Is ‘National Hemp Day?’

National Hemp Day is observed Annually on February 4th to recognize & celebrate the past, present, and future roles of Hemp in our lives. cbdMD (A Publicly-Traded; Hemp-Extracted Wellness Company) founded the Holiday on February 4, 2019; as a way to build awareness about the value of Hemp, the Farmers who work so hard to produce it, the Innovators who use it in new and unexpected ways, and anyone who finds Hemp useful in its many forms.

Hemp, or Industrial Hemp; is a Cannabis Plant rich in Cannabidiol (CBD), a naturally occurring cannabinoid that helps optimize various important biological functions. CBD benefits us by interacting with your Endocannabinoid System (ECS), an internal network of cell-signaling receptors that helps regulate key processes ranging from memory, mood, appetite, digestion, mobility, and rest.

Often mistaken for its federally illegal Cousin, Marijuana; Hemp is the complete opposite. Hemp is 100% federally legal and does not make the consumer inebriated. This is because hemp contains 0.3% or less THC; the cannabinoid in Marijuana that leads someone to become beside themselves. Since the Farm Bill passed in 2018, Industrial Hemp production has skyrocketed, and with it, the entire Hemp Industry.
