During our extraction process we produce CBD isolate, containing zero percent THC.

Sometimes authority figures and members of the media confuse our products with illegal and also harmful substances. Unfortunately, this has led to negative press and false information regarding our brand. Thankfully, with the help of our fast-acting and knowledgeable legal team, we have managed to teach news outlets and their sources about our CBD to possess these stories corrected. Here are a few corrected news stories with regards to the legality of Hemp Bombs’ CBD:
CBS 58 – “Racine County District Attorney warns against sale of CBD Gummies, Oil at convenience stores”
This story was authored by CBS 58 in Racine County, Wis. Featuring video clips in our signature CBD gummies, this short article states, “Although the oil was recently legalized in certain situations, being sold at some stores isn’t one of those.” Our goods are legally sold in brick-and-mortar stores across the nation, so that we are certain this info is untrue. Luckily, our lawyer Rod Kight was quick to clear up the confusion and CBS 58 wrote a follow-up article. Patricia Hanson, District Attorney who originally called for the warning, apologized for your confusion.
This news station in Watertown, S.D. published an article stating, “Watertown Police have issued a stern warning about consumable products which were purchased in some stores, they claim contain THC.” Hemp Bombs CBD Capsules were featured in the article. Whilst the police claim our products tested positive for THC, these people were unable to produce lab reports. Our lawyer provided our third-party lab reports to confirm Hemp Bombs items are THC-free, and this news story was amended.
In February of this year, 23 stores in Murfreesboro, TN were closed by Rutherford County police force because they were selling products containing CBD. Attorney General Jennings Jones stated, “If you own this without a prescription, you’ve broken the law.”
In this instance the president of the Tennessee Hemp Industries Association, Joe Kirkpatrick, helped provide education about CBD. Kirkpatrick said, “Unless law enforcement can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the CBD was produced from a marijuana source as opposed to a commercial hemp source, they are in clear violation in the law, and the victims of this action azwseb be eligible for petition for any economic and punitive damages applicable under the law.”
