"I think we need to start with the bases first, especially if you're trying to educate the majority of the people that have been stereotyped to criminalize this plant. Since the industry is not regulated, there's a lot of bad things happening in the market and I'm not gonna lie. That's the reason why Nesa's Hemp was born because of seeing all these devastating things, what business owners do to take advantage of this," said Ponomariovaite, founder and CEO of Nesa's Hemp.
"Education is needed. So we have to make sure we educate people. [To know] what the CBD [cannabidiol] should look like, look at your lab results. Make sure your bottles are attached to these little stickers or numbers [so] that you can trace all these processes, what happened to the plant and the lab results, and make sure there are parts per billion."
Nesa's Hemp is a dominant player in the CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) hemp oil industry. The company's CBDA hemp extract is created through a unique process developed by Ponomariovaite herself to preserve all the healing compounds of the hemp plant, which bring optimal health and healing and restore the body to its natural state.
Ponomariovaite accepts only the cleanest highest possible organic CBDA product and her CBD is organic, vegan, non-GMO with no heavy metals or toxins. The hemp plant does not oxidize and it is raw and intact when turned into the product. Nesa's CBDA hemp extract helps with rest mood stabilization and reduces anxiety and inflammation.
The hemp and CBD expert mentioned that the human body has an endocannabinoid system, which means everything that is in the hemp plant already exists in the body. She said cannabinoids in the hemp plant are something that people get from the moment they are born.
Ponomariovaite said the hemp plant could be bad when it is not used in the way nature intends it to be.
"The one thing that the plant is really criminal may be the things that are done today on the market. It's I would call criminal, but definitely not the plant itself," Ponomariovaite explained.
Rivera noted that in the hemp plant are compounds like THC or tetrahydrocannabinol, which has hallucinogenic effects. CBD, on the other hand, has anti-inflammatory effects. Ponomariovaite said research has shown that CBD along with THC helps with inflammation.
The Nesa's Hemp CEO, however, warned that the THCs available on the market today are major hybrids that can have major side effects on the brain.
Ponomariovaite also mentioned about recent research that showed that CBDA can possibly prevent the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). She noted that with this latest development, there is going to be a shift into CBD research that would focus on the dead version of the hemp plant – which is the CBD-THC hybrid or THC loaded with metals and all kinds of other toxins.

As a holistic coach, Ponomariovaite said she always makes sure her product has the highest quality.
"So anything I do or touch, I have to do my own independent testing that I'm paying for and to really understand what's in these bottles. So when I traveled in the United States and visited the number one quality product on the market, I worked in their facilities and asked them to show me [how they do it]. And that's where the problem started kicking in. And that's where I realized they have a major issue on the market because everybody or majority of the people are there for the profits," Ponomariovaite said.
"And nobody's willing to spend an extra minute to really figure out how to make it better for the end consumer because all those end consumers are the people who are looking to have balance in their life."
Ponomariovaite also pointed out that CBDA is the way nature intends hemp plant to be used. She also mentioned that biological CBDA actually grows in a natural biological soil that is not exposed to chemtrails; has sunlight and all kinds of microbes; and without pesticides and heavy metals.
