Why does the source of the hemp matter?

One of the critical details about CBD potential customers are unaware of is the importance of knowing the sourcing of the hemp from which their CBD product is extracted.

Hemp is extremely good at absorbing whatever is in the soil it is grown in. It is so good in this regard, in the late 1990s industrial hemp was used to clean the soil around the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Russia.[1] For this reason, choosing a CBD product that is sourced from hemp grown organically in the United States, where quality standards and compliance enforcement is stronger, ensures the customer can better trust the safety and effectiveness of the product they are consuming.

Additionally, not all hemp will produce the same grade of CBD product. Generic industrial hemp is grown for many different applications, including food and fibers, but doesn’t automatically contain the best concentration of cannabinoids available. For this reason, Calmy’s CBD products are sourced from a genetic strain of industrial hemp that is phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR), which features a much higher concentration of CBD than is typically available from CBD extracted from generic hemp.
