A new line of hemp-based, organic Cannabis Spa is now available

Hemp, a botanical type of Cannabis Sativa plants, is also known as industrial hemp. It is a naturally occurring cannabis plant that does not contain any or very little of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol,

(THC), which is the part of cannabis that makes you high.

We can safely attribute all the negative publicity that hemp has received to its sister compound, CBD. In the 1900s, there was an increase in tolerance towards CBD Spa massages & products. Hemp was then dragged into this. After a whirlwind series of political and social controversies, hemp was given the negative label that CBD was.
