Is Hemp Legal?

Hemp seems to ring alert bells in peoples mind, however it shouldn't. Hemp is not marijuana. The main difference between marijuana and hemp is the respective amounts of THC, the psychoactive compound. The appearance and smell also differ slightly.


Hemp which is approved for industrial and food purposes contains only minute amounts of THC, whereas Marijuana contains high amounts. Therefore it's not classified as a drug and you will not have any physical affects that you'd might obtain from marijuana.


Currently, in the UK, hemp is legal and is used in all kinds of industies from clothing and rope to countless food products.

Hemp and Drug Testing

THC levels in most, if not all, hemp protein powders, are barely measurable. Therefore failing a drug test is almost nil. Companies such as My Protein are ISO 17025 accredated which ensures that they are safe for drug tested athletes.
