FAQ

Are hemp and Marijuana the same?

No, they are not the same, although they are both part of the Cannabis family. Hemp is different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. While marijuana has a high level of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) ranging between 5%-35%, hemp has a very low level of THC, which NYS requires to stay between 0%-.3%. Should our hemp crop exceed .3% THC, it is technically “marijuana”. THC is the chemical responsible marijuana’s psychological effects, and since hemp only has a trace amount, you shouldn’t be experiencing any psychological side effects. Hemp has increased amounts of CBD, (cannabidiol) content that acts as THC’s antagonist, working chemically together with the receptors in the brain.

Are you allowed to grow hemp?

Sarah Rogers (Iris’ sister) originally pitched her family the idea of growing hemp in a Chipotle’s parking lot, and that’s what got the ball rolling for the Rogers family. Homestead Hemp was one of the first farms in NYS granted a permit to grow and research the plant, mainly focusing on growth for the use of CBD oil. Iris moved home to help the new business venture get off the ground, but after a year in, Sarah left the business unexpectedly leaving Iris to either quit or takeover. She took over with the idea of her family history in the spotlight, launching what is now Homestead Hemp 1787.

Why do you have to have a permit to grow hemp?

The differences between hemp and marijuana didn’t stop our political leaders from getting confused and accidentally grouping all Cannabis species as a Schedule I Drug and banning it in 1970 under the Controlled Substances Act. This, unfortunately, classified hemp as a drug, even though they serve completely different purposes.

How is your CBD oil processed?

We work locally with a NYS based processor, who uses CO2 extraction for CBD oil. CO2 extraction is a process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to pull the desired phytochemicals from a plant. In the world of cannabis, the process pulls all the essential cannabinoids, terpene oils and waxes out of the plant material.

How much CBD oil should I take?

Proper dosing of CBD can be tricky because everyone is different. It’s important when taking CBD to really pay attention to your body, your stress level, and your anxiety. We recommend starting with 20 mg a day, either all at once or split up between the morning and the evening. After a week if you’re not feeling desire affects, up your dosage by 20 milligrams the next week, and so on, until you find your groove.

Why should I try CBD oil?

Everyone has an endocannabinoid systems (ECS) but it’s not a topic we learn much about in school. Our ECS can affect our minds, nervous systems, health and immunity, as well as our skin, bones, organs and more. Ingesting CBD and other Phyto cannabinoids like it have shown to help control pain, aid sleep, alleviate anxiety and overall help with the homeostasis of the mind and body.

How long will a bottle last?

It’s hard to say how long your bottle of CBD oil will last because it really depends how much you’re taking and how often, We estimate about 30 doses in each bottle. If taken lightly, a bottle can last up to a month. If taken a little more heavily, a bottle could last 2-3 weeks.

Will that trace amount of THC show up on a drug test?

Probably not, but it could! If you’re someone who is frequently drug tested, you probably have a higher risk of it showing up. While the chances are low that it would, we can’t guarantee that it won’t.

Can I smoke CBD?

You CAN smoke hemp flower, and hemp pre-rolls that have high amounts of CBD in the flower, but you can’t (or you shouldn’t try) to smoke CBD OIL. Our CBD oil is blended with a carrier oil, MCT, that can become carcinogenic when heated.

Are your products full spectrum?

They are indeed! We know that CBD and THC work best chemically when they have each other, almost like peanut butter and jelly. Full spectrum CBD is derived from hemp and contains many cannabinoids beyond CBD & THC, including naturally-occurring terpenes, essential vitamins, fatty acids, protein, and more.

Do you have any CBD Topicals?

Keep an eye out! While we just launched, we have some new products in the works launching soon including small batch, plant based CBD skincare products!

Can I give HH1787 CBD oil to my pets?

Yes—but not yet! We wouldn’t recommend giving our Peppermint blend to your pet, as peppermint can cause varying side effects in animals. However we will be launching a natural, no flavoring line of tinctures, which would be great for an household pet!

Can I put HH1787 CBD oil on my skin?

While you can do that, our tinctures aren’t formulated to aid relief topically. Stay tuned, we have some topicals and skincare products coming soon!

Do you offer farm tours?

We do! We ask that you send us a message to set up a tour, and never just drop by the farm unannounced.

Are you hiring?

We are not unfortunately, but we are always looking to expand our team, and partner with more amazing badass people, so don’t be afraid to reach out!

Do you consult for other hemp farms?

Homestead Hemp offers farm tours for any new hemp farmers entering the industry or any farmers already in the industry looking to connect or learn more!

Where does HH1787 ship?

We ship to all 50 states using Flat rate mail service. We unfortunately do not ship internationally at this time.

How long does it take to ship?

Orders received before 2pm EST (M-F) are shipped out same day, orders placed after that cutoff will be shipped next business day. Shipping is typically 2-3 days, but due to COVID, expected delivery is now to 3-4 days.

My bath bomb was super crumbly and soft when I opened it, why is that?

Yes, unfortunately that can happen when exposed to high amounts of humidity! We keep our bath bombs in a humidity controlled environment, so we recommend keeping your bath bomb in dry place until you’re ready to use it. If your bath bomb CAME to you broken, please photo document and reach out to info@homesteadhemp1787.com.

What’s the shelf life of your products?

Our products have a shelf life of 1 year from the date of the Certificate of Analysis, if stored in a cool, dark place, out of direct sunlight and kept closed.

Will your CBD Pre-rolls get me high?

Nope! While you may feel an “entourage effect” from smoking, it won’t be anything more than a sleepy, happy feeling, CBD Flower is actually the most raw form of CBD. Our Pre-rolls are great for those high stress, anxiety times when you just need a minute. While the CBD oil works to aid relief throughout your day, inhaling CBD Flower will show it’s effects within 5 minutes. Smoking an entire pre-roll will most likely result in a nice zone of relaxation and drowsiness, while smoking a fourth to a half of a pre-roll will result in more of a mood lifting focus.

I bought a pack of pre-rolls but I don’t like them, can I return them?

Unfortunately, no, we really can’t take back flower since we can’t be certain that someone didn’t replace the CBD flower with Marijuana. If smoking isn’t for you, trying gifting your unused pre-rolls to a friend in need during these stressful times!
