CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of over 85 known cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. CBD often gets confused with THC which is the part of the plant that makes people feel high. CBD has deficient levels of THC (less than 0.3%) and usually helps counteract the THC effects of feeling high. Many studies have recently come out that praise CBD for its benefits for human health. Organizations still need to conduct additional studies, but the future of CBD looks promising. CBD is one of the most prominent cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
These are the compounds that give the cannabis plant it’s varied recreational and medicinal properties. When introduced to the body all the different cannabinoid receptors become active, producing varied effects depending upon the type of cannabinoid introduced. As previously mentioned, CBD is one such cannabinoid.
Phyto is Latin for Plant. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that naturally occur in in the highly useful hemp plant. Hemp plants contain significant amounts of phytocannabinoids. CBD, as it is naturally occurring, is a phytocannabinoid. While there are such things as synthetic cannabinoids, our products do not contain any of them.
These cannabinoids don’t come from the hemp plant. They are naturally occurring receptors of cannabinoids within the cells of the human body. Endo is Latin for within.
Terpenes are the compounds that bind with other cannabinoids to create different effects depending on the combinations used. They are compounds that are usually found in things like essential oils and naturally occur in different plants including the cannabis plant. When these bonds occur, they can turn up the effectiveness of the combined effect. People usually use these binding compounds to make their desired effect stronger. They are also a large part of what makes a compound taste and smell good.
Full spectrum means the whole properties of a plant are used instead of just single-molecule extracts. When these products are created full spectrum they include all nutrients, antioxidants, cannabinoids, plant compounds and terpenes instead of just bits and pieces of the plants. Many believe full-spectrum CBD oils are better than CBD Isolates. A recent study from Israel shows that full spectrum products have superior therapeutic properties vs. the standard single molecule or CBD isolate product. To learn more about terpenes, read our blog.
When you combine full spectrum CBD oil and its various compounds it magnifies effects and benefits. This magnification from combination is known as the entourage effect. You can mix over 85 different compounds present in the hemp plant for various effects. When you mix, combine and use these compounds together they create a fuller effect of wanted benefits. To learn more about the entourage effect, read our blog.
We don’t know where to begin. There are so many positive benefits of CBD oil it would take months to outline and detail them. Per FDA DSHEA regulations, we cannot state to any degree of certainty the effects of CBD consumption. Likewise, we’re not allowed to make any definitive claims about its benefits for your health. What we can do, is share research in an unbiased and informational fashion. We urge you to check out our blog. Currently, CBD is believed to have therapeutic benefits towards things like arthritis, insomnia, migraines, and more.
Effects can and may vary from person to person. Individual effects depend on factors such as frequency, duration, dosage, height, weight, and your general state of health. Some people claim prolonged responses and others claim a fast response. Again, start with a minimal dose and gauge your reaction and adjust from there. You may also want to talk to an informed healthcare provider. As mentioned before, we are unable to make any direct claims as to the effects of CBD oil, read our blog and check out the studies referenced there.
Simply put, CBD makes your body work better. CBD you introduce into your body helps support your existing ECS system and attaches to receptors in your brain that are related to serotonin production. They also attach to other receptors around your body and may help support and control responses to time perception, pleasure, sensory perception, memory, coordination, sleep, and appetite to name a few. The studies conducted around the world aren’t yet conclusive, but all you need do is read the reviews of CBD users across the web, and they’ll convince you.
No. Don’t feel bad though; many people believe hemp and marijuana are synonymous. Marijuana comes from the same plant family as hemp, but it’s important to note there are multiple strains. There are different types of cannabis such as cannabis ruderalis, cannabis indica, cannabis sativa. The one hemp comes from is cannabis sativa, while indica makes up most of marijuana. Cannabis sativa has five primary strains, one of which has a high CBD content, and negligible THC content – that’s the one we use and is known today as industrial hemp. To put things in more straightforward terms, while a red rose and white rose are similar, they are not the same, and do not grow in the same bush.
As explained earlier, Industrial Hemp, where CBD comes from, is a low THC high CBD strain of the cannabis sativa plant. Marijuana comes from cannabis indica, and high THC strains of the sativa plant. The most glaring difference is that THC gets you “high” and CBD does not. All strains of cannabis contain CBD, but the one we use contains the highest levels of CBD and lowest levels of THC possible.
That’s a good question. There are many factors to consider. One consideration is why are you taking our organic CBD oil and what affects you hope to experience. Also, consider your general health, the amount you took, and your digestion. The effects may be different for everyone, and everyone’s body may respond differently. We suggest talking to an informed healthcare professional and start with minimal doses to gauge your reaction to it and then adjust from there.
Again, No. Hemp oil has less than 0.3% of THC in it which is the compound that makes someone feel high. You could not physically stomach enough organic CBD oil to get the amount of THC you would need to feel high. You need not worry about getting high from our organic CBD oil any time soon.
No. Currently, CBD from marijuana strains is not legal in the majority of the USA. Why? We have no idea, but these are the rules. The good news is, your body does not differentiate between CBD from marijuana or CBD from hemp. The makeup and molecules look the same as far as your body is concerned which is excellent news for CBD Oil distributors and users alike.
Hemp has been, and still is, one of the most useful and significant crops for humanity – especially up until this last century. Archaeologists have dated hemp back over 10,000 years. It’s most common use was as a textile fiber for centuries. Back in ancient Mesopotamia, they found what appears to be remnants of hemp cloth. That’s a fantastic find in the land of what is currently Iran and Iraq. We should also note that Hemp is an excellent example of some of the oldest and earliest dated illustration of human industry. In the Sung dynasty in China around (500 AD), the Emperor Shen Nung (28th century BC) was a big fan of hemp and encouraged and taught his people to harvest hemp for cloth. They used hemp for everything. Scholars believe hemp made it to Europe around 1,200 BC. Soon after, it proliferated throughout our ancient world.
Grown worldwide, hemp is vastly adaptable. You can use the plant for everything from textiles and paper to green building materials and alternative fuels. For centuries people made oil from its nutritious seeds. The seeds were also a food source, as they are high in protein and can make hemp milk, a favorite lactose substitute. The hemp plants are easy to grow and do well in a variety of plant soils and environments. They boast a reasonably short harvest cycle, which has made them a favorite for farmers all over the world and has earned them the title of one of the most renewable and sustainable plants out there.
Most people don’t necessarily have a set time they take their oil. It depends on your situation. Talk to an informed healthcare provider to help guide you. We suggest you take your CBD oil at the same time every day. Doing so helps ensure you don’t forget a dose or unintentionally double up on doses.
We haven’t known of anyone that has had an allergic reaction to CBD. However, it’s also not out of the realm of possibility. If you are sensitive to plants or plant products and have been known to have allergic reactions, we would say exercise caution and talk to a healthcare professional. We always recommend you start with a tiny amount to see how your body reacts. We also suggest not starting CBD in addition to other new things so that if you do react, you know it was the CBD and not something else you also started at the same time.
We extract Organic CBD oil from the flower, stalks, leaves, and seeds. It’s used exclusively to provide more cannabinoids to the body. Culinary hemp oil is used for cooking and is pressed only from the hemp seeds. Culinary hemp oil is an excellent source of healthy Omega 6 and 3’s. We do not sell culinary hemp oil.
Thankfully, it is now. It hasn’t always been. We argue that organic CBD oil should never have been lumped in with marijuana in the first place. The legal landscape is changing dramatically, and all 50 of the united states and jurisdictions now allow Industrial Hemp and CBD oil even if they don’t allow marijuana CBD oils. Check with your local laws and regulations but here are some basic guidelines as we understand them.
The DEA’s list of schedule 1 controlled substances explicitly includes marijuana and marijuana extract but does not include industrial hemp or CBD. The CSA explicitly exempts hemp derived from mature seeds and stalks that contain less than 0.3% THC. That said, things are changing on a daily basis so check your local jurisdictions for more information. Also, check out our Legal Page and Blog Page for updates as we receive them.
We cannot say no definitively. While it probably won’t, you may want to play it safe if you must take a drug test for employment or other reasons. Hemp does contain a very, very small amount of THC, so it’s not entirely out of the realm of possibility. However, we still think it’s a low probability. Otherwise, every person who eats small amounts of poppy seeds could have a positive drug test as well, and we haven’t seen that happen a lot. Bottom line, we advise you use caution and don’t assume it’s out of the question – check out our legal page for specific product disclaimers.
We can’t say for sure. Different medications might have different reactions if mixed with CBD or anything else. Talk to your doctor and let them guide you on this one. Always use caution.
No. The only additive to our CBD oil is MCT Coconut Oil, which is used to help bodily absorption as well as to manage the potency of each products CBD MG level. We prefer to leave our products as organic and natural as humanly possible without fiddling with chemistry. It’s how we prefer to treat our own body’s and it’s how we treat our products.
We know you are as eager to get our products quickly as we are to ship them quickly. We ship all over the United States and can offer fast and reliable shipping. Currently, we only ship within the USA. Within the USA we ship via the USPS, and we do not charge for shipping.
Honestly, we aren’t interested in branching out internationally. We like being domestic, we like being local, and we encourage consumers to buy local and domestic whenever possible.
Yes. We grow our hemp under a state-sanctioned Industrial Hemp Pilot Program (IHPP) established by section 7606 of the [federal] Agricultural Act of 2014 (aka the 2014 Farm Bill). These laws were further validated by the 2018 Farm Bill, firmly solidifying Industrial Hemp Based CBD products as federally legal. Any state receiving federal funds cannot prohibit the transportation, processing, sale, or use of industrial hemp that is grown or cultivated by one of the IHPPs. All states receive federal funds, so all states are clear for the shipping of hemp-derived CBD products. That said, laws are changing rapidly state by state, so perform a quick Google search to make sure the laws in your state have not changed.
We’d say check with your vet, but many vets are now recommending the use of CBD oils for animals. It’s shown to be very helpful in calming them down and for a variety of other things within animal health and medicine. Give your vet a call and let them help you navigate this. We advise you also start pets with a minimal dose to see how they react before increasing dosages. Check out our blog for studies relating to pets and CBD.
We take the quality of our products seriously and feel that it’s essential to offer the best products on the market. Our products are all non-GMO and organic. We also use the top food grade solvents in those rare instances when we must use a solvent like during the extraction process. We make sure all our solvents are Kosher. We make sure to use third-party lab testing to give you the peace of mind that you are getting the best quality currently available.
In order to extract our oils so that they are still able to be classified as USDA Certified Organic we use a proprietary extraction method with zero added solvents to ensure optimal flavor, purity, and to prevent the loss of naturally occurring terpenes.
The (Agricultural Act of 2014) also known as the 2014 Farm Bill distinctly defines marijuana as being different from industrial hemp and cites this distinction as evidence that CBD derived from industrial hemp is legal. The Farm Bill made it legal to grow, cultivate and market hemp and hemp products as part of a state-sanctioned industrial hemp research pilot program.
The Hemp Farming Bill of 2018 was recently passed by Congress is being referred to as the Dream Bill by hemp advocates like ourselves. This bill fully legalized the entire cannabis sativa L plants (that contain under .3% THC) and not just parts of it like the stalks and seeds. The bill legalizes it at a federal level. The bill de-schedules all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, and seeds of hemp explicitly as long as those portions meet the THC level requirements. Simply put, our products are 100% legal in all 50 states!
Heck yeah, we do! One of our first conversations was about how we can parlay profits into benefits for the world at large. We donate a portion of our proceeds to different charities and organizations that help plant trees, build wells, provide water, and other ecological causes. If you represent an organization or charity that wants to partner with us, email us at [email protected] to schedule a meeting.
Hemp extract is another fancy way of saying CBD hemp oil. Companies often use these terms interchangeably. Unless we’re talking about culinary hemp oil, which does not contain CBD or THC and is merely a high temperature oil explicitly for cooking purposes.
