What Is Hemp CBD?

CBD (cannabidiol) is just one of over 60 compounds found in cannabis (and hemp which is a form of cannabis), that is not found in any other plant – that’s what makes it special.  These belong to a class of ingredients called cannabinoids. Usually, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) was getting most of the attention because it’s the ingredient in cannabis that produces mind-altering effects, or a ‘high’, in users. However CBD is also present in high concentrations and the medical world is realizing that its list of medical benefits continues to grow.

What are the benefits of Hemp CBD oil?

Research shows that the benefits of consuming CBD includes anti-inflammatory effects and pain relief, reduced anxiety, better sleep/reduced insomnia, increased deep REM sleep, anticonvulsant (helpful for seizure disorders), antioxidant, anti-nausea and much more. It has also helped with skin conditions, cravings, blood sugar levels, blood pressure etc. However, CBD alone (isolate) is not as effective without the other cannabinoids present.

What makes Broad/Full Spectrum CBD oil better than others?

When the full Hemp plant is used to create a full spectrum oil which is mixed with hemp oil it’s a potent combination . Using a full spectrum oil (meaning all parts of the plant are used) means that we are creating an oil with the full cannabinoid profile of CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN and terpenes. Full spectrum oil has trace amounts of THC. Broad spectrum oil on the other hand has all the cannabinoids except THC. These cannabinoids all work together synergistically to create something called the “entourage effect”. There are over 400 phytonutrients in the hemp plant and the C02 extraction process allows us to extract all of them.

Can CBD or other cannabinoids help the immune system?

CBD itself as well as the other cannabinoids act as a balancer in the body, promoting homeostasis and this includes with the immune system.

Can you get ‘high’ from CBD oil?

This is not marijuana and there are only tiny trace amounts of THC in the Full spectrum and zero THC in the broad spectrum, which is the compound that makes one ‘high’ when using marijuana. Our oil comes from the  hemp plant which contains higher levels of CBD and lower levels of THC. Cannabis is the opposite, it has high THC and low CBD.

Will I fail a drug test?

Our Broad spectrum oil contains zero THC. It is removed by a process called High Performance Light Chromatography.  Since even our full spectrum oil only contains trace amounts of THC, it is virtually undetectable in standard drug screens. It is considered a supplement, a food grade product. You would need to ingest 50 bottles in one setting for a trace amount to show up in a urinalysis, hair strand test, or other lab work. However, we cannot guarantee what type of testing your employer may use (some test for other cannabinoids and also terpenes) so we recommend you speak with them about it.

How much is in a bottle?

Each bottle contains approximately 600 drops, and is 30 ml in total. We have various strengths of CBD oil.  The higher the strength, the less you need and the more value you get for your dollar.

How much do I take per serving?

Our CBD oil is very potent and pure so you want to start slowly. You will start with 4-5 drops under your tongue (easiest to use a small spoon, hold for 30 seconds before swallowing), twice per day for 4-5 days then you can increase each serving by one or two drops to a maximum of 20 drops twice per day. Some like to divide it into 3 servings per day. Keep increasing until you find your personal ‘sweet spot’. Everyone is different so play around with the serving size to find what fits you best. This method of consumption under the tongue ensures that you get the full benefit of the CBD oil as it absorbs directly into the bloodstream.

How is CBD oil extracted?

CO2 process is the best and safest for extraction. This is the most expensive method of extraction but it is the one that ensures all the phytochemicals are extracted but without any harmful residues left over. This is considered the safest and most reliable extraction method in the industry.
