FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Does CBD Work?

CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system — a complex network of receptors and neurotransmitters spread throughout the entire body. This system is tasked with regulating the balance of various organ systems.

The greatest abundance of these receptors is located in the brain, the central nervous system, and the immune system. Almost every organ in your body, including the skin and digestive tract, comes with cannabinoid receptors.

The endocannabinoid system controls a plethora of major biological functions, including:

  • Neuroprotection
  • Immune response
  • Sensory perception
  • Stress management
  • Cognitive performance

CBD works through the endocannabinoid system by increasing our naturally occurring endocannabinoids — thus helping the body maintain balance.

Is Hemp Seed Oil the Same as CBD Hemp Oil?

Many people tend to confuse CBD-rich hemp extracts with the hemp seed oil you can find at their local grocery store. In truth, these two oils are worlds apart.

Standard hemp seed oil is made by cold pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. The oil that’s produced is rich in nutrients like gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), amino acids, and trace minerals. It makes for an excellent source of nutrition — but doesn’t contain CBD or any of the other cannabinoids.

CBD hemp oils, on the other hand, are made from the resinous flowers of the female hemp plants (without seeds). The resin is extracted using state of the art extraction methods to collect the cannabinoids, and terpenes naturally found in the plant resin. This is the source of CBD.

Where Do You Source Your Hemp and CBD From?

Our products are sourced from organic, high-quality Industrial Hemp cultivated on environmentally conscious and sustainable land in Colorado.

What Type of Quality Testing Do Do YouPerform on Your Products?

All our products are 3rd party lab tested to make sure the THC level is below 0.3%.

Are Your Hemp Extracts Safe? What Are the Potential Side Effects?

All our hemp extracts are third-party tested to confirm there are no contaminants such as heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, or organic matter like mold or bacteria.

The FDA has not yet included CBD in their list of supplements that are Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS). However, the compound is in the process of gaining this title by the FDA.

Current research on the compound suggests minimal side effects and a low potential for risk.

What Are the Most Important Factors to Consider When Buying CBD Products?

When choosing between our different CBD-rich extracts, pay attention to two main factors:

What’s the Most Effective Way to Take CBD?

There are many different ways you can take CBD — and none of them are more effective than the others.

The most popular method is via the mouth or sublingually with the help of oil, capsules, or our favorite — CBD-infused gummies.

CBD oils are the most versatile, as you can take your dose directly into the mouth, mix it in with food, or hold it under your tongue to speed up absorption.

What's the difference between Cannabis, Hemp and Marijuana?

Cannabis is the plant species which is then legally recognized as two different plants, marijuana and hemp. Hemp is a cannabis plant that contains less than .3% THC. Marijuana contains much higher levels of THC which is the cannabinoid that causes intoxication.

How should my CBD products be stored?

CBD oil does not need to be refrigerated, but if you would prefer to take it chilled you can store it in your fridge without impacting the product. If you prefer storing your oil, tincture, capsules, etc. at room temperature, simply leave them in the bottle anywhere that isn’t exposed to constant light or heat.

Do your products contain THC?

Some of our products have miniscule, trace amounts of THC in them — but well below the legal limit of 0.3% (as set in the 2018 Farm Bill). It is very unlikely that most users will test positive for THC in a drug test, but — just as consuming poppy seeds may make you test positive for opioids — it could happen. Always consult a product’s “details page” to find accurate information about the products you buy — including whether it contains THC.
