Frequently asked questions about GetWell Hemp
It's important that you have a good understanding about how HempDirect products work before you purchase. We want you to be comfortable and sound in your decision to select our product. For this reason we've included a fairly extensive section of questions that our customers frequently ask. Hopefully, you'll find what you need here. If not, feel free to contact us.
Is GetWell Hemp safe?
Given that you don't have any allergies or extreme sensitivities to any of the ingredients in GetWell Hemp, then yes, it’s absolutely safe. In fact, hemp extracts are one of the safest supplements available that can have such a broad positive impact on both your physical and mental health.1
Since the active ingredients in GetWell Hemp are not psychoactive, you do not run the risk of developing mental problems. The effects that the extract has on the human body are not overwhelming, and actually enhance the function of many of our natural body systems.
Can GetWell Hemp get rid of my anxiety?
While we’re not qualified to give medical advice, we know that hemp extracts can absolutely get rid of anxiety. Anxiety is one of the main reasons that people take hemp extracts. The active cannabinoid in HempDirect is very effective at reducing the disordered or delusional thinking that leads to anxiety, without actually causing any intoxicating changes to your mental state. Hemp extracts are so effective at restoring healthy thought patterns that they can even reduce psychotic thoughts in schizophrenics.2
This is a fantastic discovery, because many medications that are typically prescribed for anxiety are very addictive. Compare GetWell Hemp to a benzodiazepine like Xanax, for example, and you can quickly see why a hemp extract is safer. Xanax is actually so addictive that the withdrawal can cause you to have a fatal seizure.
Can GetWell Hemp help me with my pain?
Another one of the most common reasons people take hemp supplements is because they can help with regulating chronic pain. Not only do hemp extracts reduce your sensitivity to pain in general, but they can be a very effective at reducing pain for certain conditions that are difficult to treat.
For example, multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the nervous system and the spine. Multiple sclerosis is extremely painful, and the pain can be difficult to treat because it’s neuropathic in nature. Hemp extracts have been shown to reduce neuropathic pain in multiple sclerosis.
What’s in GetWell Hemp ?
Aside from a significant dose of the therapeutic cannabinoid compound, our product contains a number of other essential nutrients and non-essential antioxidants. Together, this will intensify the beneficial effects you feel from the extract. These nutrients include:

- Essential fatty acids are great for keeping your circulatory system healthy. They can reduce high blood pressure and help oxygen travel more effectively through your body.
- Omega fatty acids help you think clearer and generally improve cognitive function, in part because they improve blood flow to and from the brain. They can also help you alleviate depression and symptoms of anxiety or stress.
- Essential fatty acids help reduce levels of choleterolcholesterol in your body and reduce the density of triglycerides which can build up and cause health problems.
- Our product includes an assortment of phytonutrients which are extracted from plants. Phytonutrients are a wide variety of nutrients that are great for improving the health of your brain and body.
- Many of these phytonutrients are antioxidants that target different areas of the body. Antioxidants improve longevity and can help you fight off diseases like cancer.
- While many phytonutrients have similar functions, each one operates a bit differently. Taking many different phytonutrients together allows for the maximum improvement to your health.
- The supplement is jam-packed with minerals: potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, plus micro-elements like strontium, thorium, arsenic and chromium. These all have important effects in the body and can help restore you to an optimal state.
How does GetWell Hemp work?
Our body has a system known as the cannabinoid system. This system can be activated by endocannabinoids, which are produced naturally in our body, or cannabinoids found in nature, like those found in hemp and marijuana.
Many people have an imbalance in their cannabinoid system. This is no more unusual than people having an imbalanced dopamine system and requiring therapy or medication for related depression.
An unstable cannabinoid system can cause a lot of problems, and is indicated as an underlying factor in many diseases like IBS end epilepsy. If you have a condition that could be directly caused by an upset cannabinoid system, then hemp extract will probably be your best solution. 5
Even if your cannabinoid system is functioning perfectly, and you don't have any obvious medical conditions, you may still experience benefit from HempDirect. Moderate activation of the cannabinoid system can improve your focus, concentration, emotional stability, metabolism, and cardiovascular health.
Wait, how is this legal? I thought hemp was marijuana?
Nope! Marijuana and hemp are completely different plants. You could, by technicality, say that the hemp is a type of cannabis, but this does not mean that it's the same as the illegal drug marijuana. Both of these plants are a part of the cannabis family.
Just because they are apart of the same family doesn't mean that they are treated the same by the government and the medical industry. Codeine, for example, is part of the same opioid family that contains illegal drugs like heroin. Codeine it is perfectly legal to possess and consume, just like hemp extracts are.
The two plants have entirely different functions, too. Marijuana is generally used for medicinal purposes or recreationally. Hemp extracts cannot be used recreationally, and the range of positive effects that they can have on the body is much wider than that of marijuana. Hemp can be used as a dietary supplement, a beauty promoter, a medicine, as well as a raw material to make clothing and trade goods.
When dealing with GetWell Hemp, you don’t have to worry about any legal repercussions.
Is GetWell Hemp going to get me high?
Absolutely not. If you are taking this supplement for anxiety, you may feel elated once the symptoms if your anxiety disappear. This is not the same as getting high, though. Hemp extract does not contain THC or any of the other psychoactive cannabinoids that are present in marijuana. These other compounds are what get you high, give you the munchies, and can induce psychedelic thinking.
GetWell Hemp won't do any of that, except maybe make you a little bit more relaxed. It will help you clear your mind of unpleasant thoughts, and approved your focus and attention.
Will GetWell Hemp cause me to fail a drug test?
Most drug tests, when they are testing for marijuana, are looking for THC. Hemp extract contain completely negligible amounts of THC.
However, there have been cases when people have tested positive for marijuana after simply eating foods that contain hemp. Hemp seeds and hemp protein are no more dangerous for you that are hemp extract, but they have caused some people to fail drug tests.4
What makes GetWell Hemp different from medical marijuana?
Hemp extracts are very different from medical marijuana for a lot of reasons. First off, they’re legal. Most of the ‘medical’ marijuana that is supplied in the United States and Canada comes from dispensaries that are technically illegal. While some provinces and states have begun passing legislation that says it should be okay to sell medical marijuana with the local government’s permission, it is still federally illegal in both countries.
The medical applications of GetWell Hemp go much further than those of marijuana. There have been more studies done on hemp oil and extracts and the results have been much more promising, when compared to current understanding of medical marijuana.
Hemp extracts are emerging as a better alternative medical marijuana. You can get all of the benefits that you would from smoking marijuana, without having to worry about legal repercussions.
Does GetWell Hemp interact with any other medications?
Current studies have shown that hemp extracts cause very few side effects and are not likely to severely interact with other medications. However, since higher doses of hemp extract are known to lower blood pressure, it's not recommended to take them before consulting your doctor if you have a blood pressure condition.
How come you make GetWell Hemp gummies?
There were quite a few reasons that we chose to make a gummy bears our main product.
Gummies are extremely accessible. You can eat them while you're on the go, and since you can carry them with you and eat them inconspicuously, they're great for symptomatic dosing. You can take one before a panic attack sets in and people will just think you’re having a piece of candy (but be careful when they start asking for them!)
It is also much easier to ingest a gummy than it is to swallow a big capsule. Some hemp extracts come in oil form, like our GetWell Hemp Dropper bottle. This is another great way to ingest hemp extract, but you don't get to enjoy the flavor of a gummy.
