Frequently Asked Questions
The HempOPedic comfort materials are very breathable and do not trap heat. The open cell structure allows heat to dissipate quickly, providing a cooler sleep. Huge strides in technology in the manufacturing of foam, memory foam in particular, have led to some amazing improvements! Some foams can be hot, especially certain memory foams that are sensitive to temperature and are slow responding.
HempOPedic will work with most bed frames, including using it on a traditional box spring or foundation as long as your box spring/foundation is rigid and flat (like the firm, unbending support of a platform bed), or directly on a solid platform frame. Platform beds with wooden slats are an ideal support, however the spacing between the slats must be no greater than 3”. The spacing between the slats can’t be greater than the width of the slats. The slat width must be no less than 2”. The slats must be at least 3/4” thick. The slats must be supported by a full length mid-rail and at least one mid-rail support to the floor. If you are unsure if your platform bed frame and/or mattress foundation, or any platform bed frame/mattress foundation, meets our guidelines, they can be approved in writing by emailing pictures and/or detailed specifications to firstname.lastname@example.org
HempOPedic is proudly made in Canada. We use only high grade materials including CertiPUR-US® flexible polyurethane foams, Oeko –Tex class 1 talalay and GOLS Dunlop latex. Also hemp! Most of our mattresses have layers that can be rearranged to create a different comfort and can also be flipped for maximum life span.
Hemp VS Marijuana
Hemp is the cousin of Marijuana and both are derived from Cannabis sativa L.
Canada has grown industrial hemp for seed and fibre since 1988. Its potential to produce healthy food and environmentally friendly products, including paper, textiles, biocomposites and sustainable building materials make it second to none. Hemp is a fast growing annual, is renewable, reusable and a recyclable resource. Hemp refers to the industrial use of the stalk and seed and within the U.S. and Canada must contain less than 0.3% THC in its flowers and leaves to qualify as hemp. Hemp is high in CBD or cannabidiol. Hemp is extremely low in THC, is NOT psychoactive, can be grown with minimal care in most climates in a way that gives back to the soil and is used in over 25,000 documented applications including, but not limited to automobiles, body care, clothing, construction, food, plastics etc.
Marijuana is high in THC (5% - 20% or more), is psychoactive, must be grown in carefully controlled conditions and is used in medical and recreational use.
