FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Hemp?
Hemp like Marijuana is a variety of Cannabis plant. The main difference between the two is the content of the psychoactive component Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has mind-altering effects. Hemp contains less than 0.3% THC which is unlikely to get you “high”, and it has higher concentrations of Cannabidiol (CBD) known for its medical benefits. It can be used for a wide range of products like paper, textiles, food, etc. At Asher Hemp, we develop and grow smokable hemp strains with high concentrations of CBD which is enjoyable, delicious, and benefic. All our products contain by law less than 0.3% THC.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids naturally occurring in the Cannabis plant, and it might account for up to 25% of the plant’s extract. CBD is non-psychoactive which means it won’t get you “high”. All the products we sell, are made with CBD derived from American grown Industrial Hemp.
What is Delta 9 THC?
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive cannabinoid naturally occurring in the Cannabis plant. THC is the chemical responsible for the “high” sensation. At Asher Hemp, all the products we sell, contain less than 0.3 THC.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a complex biological system in the human body. ECS impacts several processes like regulating your anxiety levels, mood, pain perception, sleep schedule, immune system, as well as other important functions and responses. ECS has three components: receptors, enzymes, and endocannabinoids. After the enzymes break down the cannabinoids, the endocannabinoids tend to bind with receptors. CBD does not directly interact with the receptors but influences them in some way. Activating these receptors is what allows for many of the health benefits associated with the compound.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
There are three main forms of CBD:
- CBD Isolate is the pure form of CBD and it does not contain other Cannabis compounds. CBD Isolate is refined, and it has no color or flavor.
- Broad Spectrum CBD contains a range of compounds naturally occurring in the Cannabis plant, but it doesn’t contain THC. Still, some products might contain trace quantities.
- Full Spectrum CBD contains multiple Cannabis compounds such as terpenes, oils, essential oils, other cannabinoids, and up to 0.3% THC.
Full Spectrum CBD has a more potent effect on the body because it contains all Cannabis compounds. It is proven that CBD works best together with other cannabinoids.
At Asher Hemp, all the products we sell are Full Spectrum and contain less than 0.3% THC.
Is CBD Legal Federally?

What is Delta 8 THC?
Delta 8 THC is a cannabinoid found in minor quantities in the Cannabis plant. Companies use selective breeding and molecular isolation to achieve more significant amounts of it. Delta 8 THC is very similar to Delta 9 THC (probably the most well-known cannabinoid) but with some notable differences. Both of them can help soothing pain, reduce nausea, stimulate appetite, but Delta 8 has lower psychotropic effects than Delta 9. All these benefits are not scientifically proven yet, and they have to be weighted in clinical trials.
What is CBG?
CBG or Cannabigerol is a minor cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant, and it’s considered “the mother” of all cannabinoids. CBG, like THC, reacts with receptors in the brain, but it’s not psychoactive, and actually, it can act as a buffer for the effects of THC. CBG works to fight nausea, pain, anxiety and slow down the proliferation of cancer cells.
What is CBN?
CBN (Cannabinol) is a cannabinoid obtained by oxidation of THC. CBN is not intoxicating, and it has anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsant properties on its own, and it could act as a pain reliever when combined with CBD.
