FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WE WANT TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT WE CAN AND TELL YOU ABOUT THE QUESTIONS WE CAN’T ANSWER TOO …
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabidiol—CBD—is the much talked about cannabis chemical compound found in hemp and high-CBD strains of cannabis. It is non-psychoactive (can not get you 'high') and is a wonderful nutritional supplement and super food.
WHY IS CBD GOOD FOR YOU?
CBD has been shown to support the proper functioning of the Endocannabinoid System. The role of the Endocannabinoid System is to protect and modulate the nervous system and the immune system. You can think of it as pushing the reset button on both the nervous system and the immune system. It pulls these systems out of abnormal patterns and stress responses. CBD supports the natural system that was meant to act as a check and reset.
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of science’s newest and most exciting discoveries. The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses and even cognitive function. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively. In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally—no small task!
WHAT IS ‘FULL SPECTRUM’ CBD, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Full spectrum refers to all the cannabinoids naturally found in hemp. There have been over eighty different cannabinoids isolated and identified. The ‘take away point’ is that CBD has shown to be much more effective in the presence of all the naturally occurring cannabinoids. This is an important point because CBD has gained a lot of notoriety and some people mistakenly think the CBD isolate is what we are is referring to, but in actuality it is the ‘full spectrum, CBD rich hemp extract’ that we sell and recommend.
Cannabinoids are rare in nature. Even though all animals, including humans, are able to internally create small amounts of cannabinoids, there are few places in nature where they can be found in abundance. Hemp is by far the richest source for a wide range of cannabinoid substances. It is a unique plant that has been shown to have unprecedented healing properties.
TELL ME ABOUT CO2 EXTRACTION AND WHY YOU USE THAT METHOD?
CO2 extraction is a high pressure method of disrupting the cell walls of the plant material and extracting the rich material contained within, which is rich in cannabinoids. This method of extraction is the cleanest way to extract the cannabinoids from hemp. There are other methods of extraction, Rick Simpson Oil, being one method. But all the other methods use solvents which have varying degrees of toxicity and can leave residuals in the final product. We are looking to create the cleanest product possible and CO2 extraction is the way to start.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA?
Hemp is the heirloom variety of cannabis. It is the unadulterated strain of cannabis sativa. The cannabinoid and phytonutrients makeup are in the amounts and ratios that naturally occur in industrial hemp. It is high in CBD and low in THC. What is commonly referred to as ‘Marijuana’ are strains of cannabis sativa that are high in THC and low in CBD. Both are varieties of the cannabis sativa plant. It is selective breeding and growing conditions that differentiate these two very different plants.

WILL CBD HELP ME IF I’M HEALTHY?
Many knowledgeable professionals are considering the cannabinoids, particularly CBD, to be an essential food. Because it plays such a vital role in neurological protection and assisting the body in dealing with stress many consider it to be a staple we should not be without.
The cannabinoids from hemp have long been in the food chain in most cultures around the world. It was traditionally used as animal fodder. Because it is a rich source of proteins, healthy fats, and cannabinoids it was a near ideal plant to grow for animal feed. The benefit of feeding to the animals that were then consumed by humans was that the cannabinoids were passed on through the food chain.
CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS ON MY ANIMALS?
It is our favorite way of saying ‘Thank you, and we love you’ to our dear companions. They have an endocannabinoid system too!
WILL I TEST POSITIVE DURING A DRUG TEST?
There are different ways that companies test for drugs. Some drug tests are specific for THC and some are broader and test for all cannabinoids. It is best to check with your workplace prior to starting a product with cannabinoids.
WHERE DO WE OBTAIN OUR CBD AND IS IT ORGANIC?
We source from reputable hemp farmers in the US and Europe who grow organically. We test for pesticides, mold, and toxins, and gather all certifications from our sources.
WHAT IS THE STANDARD USE AND SERVING SIZE?
The amount of CBD oil that people take on a daily basis can vary greatly. 1 to 2 drops per 10 pounds of body weight is our suggestion. For an average size adults one dropper full per day is sufficient.
Know that some people with serious needs are taking 5 to 10 times the suggested dosage to achieve the results they are desiring. Some people who are very sensitive are using much less than the suggested dosage.
CBD oil can be ingested at any time on an empty or full stomach.
IS CBD OIL LEGAL?

IS CBD VAPE SAFE AND LEGAL?

WHY DO WE USE MONK FRUIT AS A SWEETENER IN OUR PRODUCTS?
Monk fruit is a sweet fruit that has been used for centuries for its healing ability. It is also known as “Luo Han Guo” and it dates back to the 13th century monks living in the steep mountain region of Southern China.
The fruit was named after advanced Buddhist practitioners, called “Luohan”. It is also known as the longevity fruit; many of the population live to be over a hundred in this region of China. Organic Monk Fruit, which ours certainly is, supports the immune system, digestive tract, glands, cardiac, and respiratory system – which is why it is used in China for medicinal purposes from allergy to the most serious conditions. It has also been found to have a powerful effect on diabetes. The extract, which has a low glycemic index, has been shown in animal studies to decrease blood sugar, total cholesterol, triglycerides and to improve liver and kidney function.
