      Why only full spectrum hemp and no isolates?

      We strongly favor full spectrum products that include terpenes and a wide variety of cannabinoids, as naturally produced by hemp.

      Terpenes and the "Entourage Effect"

      The Straight Hemp secret sauce

      Extraction methods matter. And ours are the best.

      Straight Hemp uses the widely-recognized top extraction method, Subcritical CO2, which takes place at cool temperatures and low pressures.

We clearly notice the difference, and we’re sure you will too.

      While both produce cannabinoids and terpenes, the relative quantities of each are different. Hemp-based products have far less tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—the compound that gives recreational marijuana users a "high”—than a marijuana-based product.
