Can I buy CBD online?
Absolutely! The 2018 Farm Bill legalized CBD and CBD containing products that contain 0.3% or less of THC.
Do your products contain THC? Will it make me high?
No, it will NOT make you high. All CBD products on the market are required by law to contain less than 0.3% THC. That’s less than three-tenths of a percent. CBD-rich industrial hemp and THC-rich marijuana are different varieties of the same plant, Cannabis sativa. They have been selected and bred for different purposes producing vastly different characteristics between the two. Products on this site contain “No THC” which means products on this site contain a value of 0.3% or less THC (or no more than 0.3% THC). Our source material is tested to have under 0.3% THC before we formulate our products. If you are subject to a very stringent drug test, please purchase a home testing kit first to be sure, as many factors are involved, such as metabolism, body mass, and more.
Can I add tinctures to food or liquid?
Absolutely! Sub-lingual (under the tongue) is best for access to the bloodstream, but mixing with food or drinks (non-boiling) can be a great way to administer CBD, and very pleasant too! Try the vanilla or peppermint tincture added to coffee and cream for a CBD vanilla latte or CBD peppermint latte. Vanilla is also tasty when added to orange juice (a bit like an orange creamsicle). Also, the formulations are very effective when combined together.
How is your CBD extracted?
Our CBD is extracted using supercritical CO2 extraction and multistage lab tested every step of the way. Some CBD is extracted through chemical methods, so it’s important to know how your CBD is extracted.
What’s the difference between eating CBD and vaping CBD or smoking hemp flowers?
Consuming CBD in the form of an edible or tincture takes a bit longer to have an effect, but lasts a very long time. Vaping CBD is very fast acting but fades faster than eating. Our best recommendation is to try one vape and one edible product. Vape and eat at the same time for a good dose of CBD for both quick and enduring effects. That way you get CBD active in the body immediately as well as CBD that will become active over time.
What is unrefined broad spectrum dark CBD?
Unrivaled potency. This is BEYOND full-spectrum. Most other CBD products on the market – even full-spectrum – involve some amount of refinement. The problem with this is that the more you refine any hemp product, the more nutrients are lost, so the most effective CBD products you can get are the ones that can call themselves unrefined. Only our products can say that. As we say around here, refined CBD is like taking a vitamin C tablet instead of eating an orange. Sure, you may technically have more of the so-called active ingredient, but the human body is far more complex than that; all the other botanical compounds in the plant, many of which are potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in their own right, interact to maximize their effectiveness. We keep all that good stuff in there.
What’s the difference between unrefined broad spectrum and CBD crystal isolates?
Unrefined full spectrum is far more efficient and effective. The source of your CBD matters a great deal. If you have a CBD gummy containing 25 mg of CBD isolate (crystals), it’s not going to be as effective as a lower dose of unrefined full spectrum CBD (like ours), let alone a comparable dose. The darker the vegetable the more nutrient dense it is, and the unrefined dark CBD we use in our capsules is so dark it’s literally black. This is the TRUE full spectrum state, the most potent and nutrient dense form of CBD. Most companies will take this dark extract and refine it into a light golden form or even a crystal form to create gummy candies. While this does bring up the milligrams of CBD, it also strips the plant of everything that nature intended you to eat with it – we’re talking CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, terpenoids, plant sterols, chlorophyll, vitamin E, omega 3,6,9 fatty acids, and a host of other phytonutrients that are missing in that crystal CBD gummy. It’s not just about the milligrams – it’s about how effective those milligrams are – and what you’ll find is that dark CBD works tremendously better than anything else even if it has less CBD in it. Our capsules contain 25 mg of CBD per capsule, along with all those other dark nutrients inside to get the synergistic affect of an unrefined full spectrum product. You’ll be presently surprised at the difference of feel between dark CBD and light CBD.
Could I fail a drug test after using these products?
Technically it’s possible, but EXTREMELY unlikely. Let’s do the math. A typical single-dose marijuana edible may have anywhere from 10 to 100 mg of THC, which would likely set off a drug test. Our tinctures contain less than 0.05% THC. This means that one gram of tincture (which is A LOT) would therefore have less than half a milligram of THC, or less than one-twentieth the amount in the smallest edible you might buy from a dispensary. So is it possible for this to trigger a drug test? Theoretically, yes. Is it likely? Nope. Remember, no drug test is perfect. You are far more likely to fail a drug test due to a false positive than from the barely measurable amounts of THC found in our products.
Will this interfere with my medications? Can I take CBD with a particular pharmaceutical drug?
Please consult your primary care physician and consult a primary resource such as PubMed.Gov for the latest research.
Probably not, but when in doubt talk to your prescribing physician. We have never heard or seen anyone complain about CBD interfering with medication. You may as well be drinking green tea for wellness; CBD isn’t a drug, it’s just plant juice. We’ve seen plenty of people reduce their medications and trade in truckloads of pharmaceuticals for the natural healing effects of CBD. (Obviously we can’t officially recommend that, but it happens pretty often.) If you have specific questions about any meds you take, play it safe and ask your doctor or pharmacist.
What’s difference between MCT and coconut oil?
MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil used in some of our products is odorless, colorless, and liquid at room temperature, and is derived from coconut oil. Please consult your primary care physician if you have a coconut allergy.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are powerful aromatic molecules responsible for the flavor and aroma of plants. But terpenes do more than provide flavor and aroma. They also support other cannabis molecules in producing wanted effects. We call this the entourage effect, and it’s the reason terpenes have become such a critical piece of the cannabis puzzle.
Cannabis contains hundreds of molecules that have the ability to directly interact with our bodies and minds. Cannabinoid molecules are relatively unique to the cannabis plant, but other plant-derived molecules such as flavonoids and terpenes also bind to our cells and influence our experiences.
In addition to their aromas, terpenes have direct interactions with our bodies. For instance, alpha-pinene and beta-caryophyllene interfere with molecules that dilate our blood vessels. Less dilation equals less inflammation. Evidence suggests that whole-plant cannabis (that includes terpenes) is superior to isolated compounds from the plant. This isn’t entirely surprising: if pinene is anti-inflammatory, and CBD is also anti-inflammatory, then the body has a chance to fight inflammation from two different angles. This combined benefit is known as the Entourage Effect; cannabinoids like THC and CBD produce better outcomes when they are consumed alongside a supporting cast of terpenes.
How are the tinctures different from each other?
We have developed special blends of natural plant terpenes after years of testing in order to create the different formulations. Each formula has it’s own terpene percentages and terpene profiles. Customer feedback strongly indicates their efficacy, and that is our reason to exist: to serve our beloved customers with effective and fairly valued formulations to enhance and enable our best lives.
