Nature's Root Spa FAQs
WHY CHOOSE HEMP?
We choose hemp for our body care products because of its high content of linoleic and linolenic acid which provides anti-inflammatory properties for skin care and as a result may positively improve skin lesions, balance dry skin, fight skin irritations. Hemp oil is a non-greasy, emollient, superior for its anti-aging and moisture balancing properties. Hemp Oil Extract has been found to hold many beneficial components such as cannabadiols (CBD), recognized for reducing pain, its anti-bacterial and antimicrobial agents as well as helping with itchy/psoriasis laden skin. We genuinely care about you and this genuine love goes into every batch of beauty we make! All of Our Products are 100% THC-Free!
THE MIGHTY HEMP PLANT
The Cannabis Sativa L plant is a sustainable resource that provides a variety of uses from food and nutrition, to body care, paper, textiles, fabric, fuel, plastic alternatives, building materials, and more. Currently twenty-three states in the U.S. can legally grow hemp for industrial or research purposes. An exceptionally hearty plant, and at a time when our current world is being impacted with high levels of CO² affecting our oceans and climate, disturbing its natural balance, the hemp plant may very well be a remedy to much of the challenges. For every ton of hemp grown, not only is 1.6 tons of carbon absorbed, but, its phytoremediation properties have shown to remove toxins and radiation from the soil.
The human body has cannabinoid receptors in the brain and in the immune system. These receptors make up The Endocannabinoid System and Hemp is the only known plant in nature that can activate these receptors.
Hemp doesn't require harsh pesticides or chemical fertilizers to produce tons of edible hemp seed per acre. This makes hemp ideal for our delicious and sometimes edible beauty and body care products.
For every one ton of hemp that is produced 1/3 of a ton of carbon is removed from the air. Hemp cultivation has even been used to help remove nuclear conta-minates in the soil near Chernobyl and other nuclear waste sites.
The U.S. government owns the patent on cannabinoids, stating that "Cannabinoids can be used as antioxidants and neuroprotectants and have a particular application in treating neurodegenerative diseases."

All products made from the hemp plant are 100% recyclable, biodegradable and could end our voracious appetite for all of our most heavily consumed, carbon producing, nonrenewable resources like fuel, food, shelter and fibre.
Every year the U.S.A imports over 300 million dollars of hemp goods for manu-facturing including hemp seed, hearts, hurd, fibre and oil. By bringing the production of hemp back to local farms and families, we hope to help reduce global pollution and jumpstart local hemp economies.
WHAT IS CANNABIDIOL?
Cannabidiol (CBD), is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits. CBD is non-psychoactive compound inherent to the Cannabis Sativa L plant (hemp). The tide has turned as we are now seeing a vast increase in scientific and clinical research, much of it is being completed through and by the US government. These studies are highlighting CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronic pain, schizophrenia, PTSD, depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.
WILL CBD GET ME HIGH?
Do hemp products have THC? Will I get goofy, or high, by using them? Nope! Absolutely not! These are pretty common questions from a wide demographic of people who are interested in exploring hemp products for the first time. We are happy to tell you that our hemp beauty products have no THC and zero psychoactive effects. We only use organic industrial hemp that contains less than the required .3% THC limit by law.
