Find yourself in good hands with these hemp industry vets.
In this moment when cannabis and hemp products are becoming increasingly legalized throughout the United States, it would be an understatement to say that the patchwork of state and federal regulations dictating what you can and can’t legally buy and where is difficult to understand (we have a whole guide dedicated to just that!). But if you want help understanding what products you have access to and what they can do, you’re in the right place.
Legislation in 2018 made the production and sale of hemp and hemp-based products legal at the federal level and, with a little help from science, hemp can do a whole lot. The hemp plant is a type of cannabis (a sativa species under the genus cannabis, if you want to get into the weeds). Hemp can be some pretty powerful stuff since it shares the same chemical compounds like THC and CBD that cause effects as cannabis. Thanks to modern extraction techniques, you can experience some of those effects with federally-legal hemp-based products.
We believe in the power of the plant to do serious good in people’s lives.

With some of the highest testing standards in the industry and a deep catalog available online, the brand is committed to connecting people with quality, natural wellness solutions that work for them.
Read on to better understand what different hemp products can do for you & find the experience you’re looking for with help from Green Garden Gold.
Green Garden Gold hemp
If you’re seeking one of the benefits associated with cannabis and hemp, be it relief from pain or anxiety, help sleeping, or a stress-busting buzz, quality hemp products may be able to help. The compounds in cannabis—cannabinoids like THC & CBD and terpenes—work together to create effects. Hemp plants contain these compounds, too, just in smaller amounts.
What is a cannabinoid?
Hemp products from Green Garden Gold start with USA-grown hemp, where the brand contracts directly with best-in-class farm growers who monitor production quality before sending the raw hemp on for refinement in a lab setting. To ensure a high-quality, pure end-product, they avoid harmful cutting agents in their proprietary production process and distill to create a hemp oil rich in cannabinoids, fine-tuning their formulas to create products that lean into specific cannabinoids and combinations. That means for the specific effect or experience you’re looking for, there’s more than likely a Green Garden Gold hemp product with the right ingredients, in the right ratios, designed to do just that.
How are you hoping to feel?
The first question driving what hemp product is right for you is what you’re hoping to experience. And though the potential uses for the plant are vast, there are a few key, common effects that bring the most people into exploring hemp products. Relief from pain, help calming anxiety, better sleep, and a sense of euphoria are some of the most frequent desires that Green Garden Gold hears from its customers.
Do you want to feel “high”?
The most obvious effect associated with traditional cannabis is clearly its intoxicating effect, the “high” weed is famous for. But cannabis and hemp contain both intoxicating and non-intoxicating cannabinoids, so you don’t have to feel high to experience the benefits of some hemp products.
On the other hand, because hemp contains THC—the main cannabinoid that causes an intoxicating effect—brands can create high-quality hemp products with noticeable levels of THC despite its lower concentration in hemp versus cannabis, as long as they stay within certain federal restrictions.
I’ll take some intoxication: delta-9 & delta-8 THC
If you’re looking for relief from pain, sleeplessness, or nausea and are open to experiencing a high, or if a euphoric, mood-boosting buzz is exactly what you’re after, THC-forward products are the ticket. THC is the primary compound responsible for the euphoric, intoxicating effect of cannabis and may benefit those with issues ranging from inflammation to PTSD to appetite loss.
To be federally compliant, hemp-based products are required to have no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC, the traditional THC we think of with cannabis, by dry weight. Hemp producers have found, though, that this creates an easy way to offer products with similar delta-9 THC potency levels as adult-use cannabis products with careful attention to cannabinoid ratios and product weight.
Green Garden Gold’s vegan, Strawberry Bliss-flavored delta-9 THC gummies, for example, have 30 gummies per jar with 10mg hemp-derived delta-9 THC per piece. Using a pure rosin extract, Green Garden Gold’s gummies are fully infused—never sprayed or coated—for a more effective and enjoyable experience that’s heavy on euphoria and relaxation.
If you’d like to experience a high, but would rather have a mellower ride, delta-8 THC gummies from Green Garden Gold could be just the thing for you. Delta-8 THC is another intoxicating cannabinoid found in trace amounts in cannabis and hemp plants that’s a close chemical cousin to delta-9 THC. Often described as “THC light” or a hybrid between THC and CBD, delta-8 has a more mild intoxicating effect than delta-9 and is also known to be free of the anxiety and paranoia effects sometimes experienced with D-9. Delta-8 gummies are available in Blue Raz, Strawberry Bliss, and Tropical Punch varieties from Green Garden Gold.
Hold the buzz, please: CBD & more
If you’re looking for help with pain management, anxiety, sleeplessness, and more and do not wish to experience a sense of intoxication, CBD products are an excellent place to start. CBD is one of the two most abundant cannabinoids found in cannabis and hemp plants. As opposed to THC, it’s non-intoxicating, but it still has a host of associated benefits. Current research suggests CBD helps with both neuropathic and inflammatory pain; a majority of research shows it may be beneficial for anxiety symptoms, potentially influencing activity in the serotonin system; and while more research is needed to study CBD’s effect on insomnia symptoms, a huge number of people swear by it for more restful nights.
Green Garden Gold’s hemp-based CBD is available in a variety of high-quality formats designed to go to work for you. Their fan-favorite HumanoFlow CBD-infused Salve contains 1000mg CBD with nourishing coconut oil and a calming vanilla scent and is designed to soothe skin and quiet pain.
The workhorse behind hundreds of happy customer testimonials, with people lauding its power to alleviate chronic pain as well as soothe restless sleepers and anxious minds, is Green Garden Gold’s CBD Soft Gel Capsules. The familiar capsule format is as easy to integrate into your routine as a multivitamin and each one is packed with 30mg of high-quality, full-spectrum CBD oil.
The good news doesn’t stop at CBD: another non-intoxicating cannabinoid, CBG, has shown promise in a whole host of therapeutic applications. Green Garden Gold offers CBG in capsules, gummies, and a blended tincture including CBD.
