In the US, both hemp and marijuana are related sub-species of Cannabis sativa and defined by the concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Hemp is a legal definition describing cultivars of Cannabis sativa that are grown for seed, fiber, and hempseed oil. Hemp is typically tall, having thick stalks and thin leaves with few flowers. These plants contain negligible amounts of THC, less than 0.3%, and are not intoxicating. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the second most common cannabinoid in marijuana but is not intoxicating. Hemp contains naturally occurring cannabinoids including CBD which is recognized for its benefits on human and animal health. It is capable of affecting nearly every biological process in the body via the ECS. CBD is not intoxicating and will not cause feelings of euphoria like THC. It is generally well tolerated, even at high doses and has a remarkable safety profile. Marijuana is mostly used medicinally or by responsible adults for its intoxicating and euphoric effects. THC is the most common natural cannabinoid in marijuana. Its activity in our brain is associated with the euphoric and intoxicating effects of marijuana. Because of legal restriction on growing marijuana, it can be challenging to grow and is often grown indoors leaving an enormous carbon footprint, depending on the growing conditions.
Discovered in 1992, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is made up of neuromodulatory endocannabinoids (produced by the body) and receptors. This system modulates homeostasis and promotes balance across our body systems. Cannabinoid receptors are found throughout the body and bind with endocannabinoids. Today we are beginning to study the ECS in more detail and better understand its role in homeostasis.
Yes, as of 2018, hemp is no longer an illegal controlled substance. The plant Cannabis sativa, having less than 0.3% THC by weight, is no longer considered marijuana. Forty-one states have passed legislation related to industrial hemp and at least 39 states have allowed for hemp cultivation and production programs with 17 actively cultivating industrial hemp for commercial purposes.
Hemp oil contains many bioactive compounds that interact to optimize health and wellness. The entourage effect refers to the complex interaction of these individual components with each other and the body. Hemp contains beneficial nutrients called essential fatty acid and naturally occurring cannabinoids including CBD.
Due to federal guidelines, we do not make specific claims about the effectiveness of our product for the treatment of specific diseases or symptoms. We encourage you to do your own research, consult with medical professionals, and to experience the benefits for yourself. Anecdotal evidence suggests that naturally occurring cannabinoids in hemp help promote a healthy inflammatory response, support the central nervous system and enhance cell vitality.
Hemp oil is produced from the arable parts of the plant and contains most of the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in hemp, including CBD. Hemp seed oil is made from hemp seed and contains few natural cannabinoids. It is used in foods, beauty products, lubricants, and paints.
Hemp contains naturally occurring cannabinoids including CBD and trace amounts of THC, less than 0.3%. Randy’s Remedy is made with whole hemp ingredients and may contain trace amounts of THC. While positive drug test results have not been reported by our customers we cannot guarantee that you will not fail a drug test when using Randy’s Remedy products. The amount of THC in Randy’s Remedy products is analogous to the amount of opioids in a poppy seed bagel.
Randy's Remedy Product Information
Randy’s Remedy products are produced in Santa Cruz, CA in a certified commercial kitchen using industrial hemp and other botanical ingredients. Our hemp material is sourced from Colorado and Kentucky and contains naturally occurring cannabinoids. We chose to use domestically produced hemp over hemp grown overseas because we want to support the domestic hemp industry and reduce the cost and environmental impact of our products. Other botanical ingredients, containing essential plant terpenes, are added to balance the ratios of the active natural cannabinoids and essential plant terpenes to fully leverage the entourage effect. Essential terpenes are sourced from botanicals, such as lavender and hops, to create a botanically complete oil containing all the active and essential ingredients of the whole plant. The industrial hemp is processed using a solvent and infused, along with the added terpenes, into Randy’s Remedy products using a specialized method for ensuring consistently high quality. This process allows us to standardize from batch to batch which ensures the highest quality and consistency of Randy’s Remedy products. Our products are not certified organic but are made with 80% organic ingredients and are vegan-friendly. They are made with coconut and soybean oil and do not contain gluten.

Randy’s Remedy Daily was developed for people but it wasn’t long before customers were reporting benefits for their companion animals. Not wanting to leave our furry friends out from being able to experience the benefits of Randy’s Remedy products, and to make it easier to use less with smaller animals, we created Randy’s Remedy companion with the same ingredients but at a lower concentration for smaller animals.
All our products are generally regarded as safe. Our hemp oils are being tested for potency and safety to ensure consistent quality from batch to batch. A Certificate of Analysis (COA) and manufacturer safety data sheet (MSDS) for ingredients used to make Randy’s Remedy products are available upon request. Although hemp products do not yet require testing for pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and residual solvent, we plan to implement these tests in the near future.
