Does the ink contain POT?
What we call “pot”or “marijuana” is the branch of the cannabis family that is cultivated for its high THC yields. US Federal law prevents us from using “pot” in our ink and selling it across state lines. Instead, we use HEMP, which is the branch of the cannabis family that is cultivated for its high oil and fiber yields. Humans have been using hemp for everything from cloth-making to food stuffs for millennia. Our hemp is internationally grown and full of oil.

The chemical that is responsible for marijuana “highs” is THC. Because hemp is already incredibly low in THC, and because the US Federal Government prevents any hemp import from having a noticeable level of THC, you WILL NOT experience a THC high when using our ink.
