FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

While we can't make claims regarding any specific conditions we can tell you what we would recommend for a loved one and how we can offer support. It's also true that what may work for one person may not for another. If you choose to use one of our products, we would love to hear how it works for you so we may pass it on to others.

 

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.

  

OILS AND CAPSULES

Oil- digested through the stomach, the base is hemp seed oil, you will 'feel' it faster, and it has a stronger taste.

Capsules- digested through small intestine, the base is coconut oil, absorbed well but takes longer to 'feel', and is tasteless.    

 

DO YOU HAVE TO REFRIGERATE THE OILS?

The shelf life unrefrigerated is about a year and a half (unopened). It will last longer if refrigerated (2 years). Just do your best to keep away from sunlight, heat, etc. I personally don’t refrigerate ever.

  

DOSING

One of the things about the use of plants to support proper functioning is that the 'dosing' often doesn't need to be as exact as with medications.  However, over time you will probably find the optimum amount that supports you the best. A normal healthy person or someone looking to CBD as preventative health / a superfood supplement would take 20 drops or nearly 1 dropper full daily (which would be about 8mg of CBD.) The amount of Hemp Extract Oil that people take on a daily basis can vary. You can take it with or without food - the optimal way to consume it is to hold it under the tongue for 30 seconds or longer before swallowing.

 

HOW MANY DROPS IN A BOTTLE?

20 drops per dropper = 8mg (recommended dose)

30 droppers full per ounce (or one month supply)

Therefore, a 500mg (2 oz. bottle) will last appx 2 months)

 

WHAT STRAIN OF HEMP DO YOU USE?

The strain is a Sativa dominant cross between Charlotte’s Web and Cherry. It’s absolutely delicious oil that’s been CO2 extracted, then winterized and dewaxed. From flower and trim - grown in Colorado under an industrial hemp license

 

HOW DO I READ THE COA?

What you do to read the certificate of analysis is take the mg/ g then multiply it times the weight in grams (28.25 in an ounce).

Therefore, you would multiply 9.14mg x 28.25 = 258.20mg

Some of our products test +/-, and this is common in the industry. Substances like honey and glycerin create ‘pockets’ of cbd that make tests consistently inaccurate. But the oils test more accurately.

What we do to ensure the closest accuracy is test the cannabinoid count of the raw CBD-hemp extract from the same lab we test finished products - before we blend - this creates a proper baseline for concentration accuracy.

 

HOW MANY MG/ML?

Appx 8mg/ml - all concentrations are 250mg / 30ml (1oz). 

 

HOW MUCH CBD IN A 250 MG BOTTLE?

The 250mg is referring to the amount of CBD in the bottle.   If you squeeze the dropper top once then the dropper will be about half full which will contain around 8mg of CBD.

 

WHAT PERCENTAGE OF THE OIL IS CBD?

The CBD extract that we use varies in concentration from 40% up to 70%.  We mix the appropriate amount in each bottle to produce a standardized concentration of 250mg of CBD in each ounce. 

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN CONCENTRATE BETWEEN BOTTLE SIZES?

That’s a great question! All of our concentrations are the same, only the bottles increase in size. For instance, the 250mg is 1oz, the 500 is 2oz, etc., so you would still take the same dose. People often buy the larger bottles to save money and have a larger supply on-hand in case they would like to take larger doses.

  

WHAT ARE THE SHIPPING COSTS?

Shipping is auto calculated at checkout via USPS rates based on your address and choice of speed/service.

 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TINCTURES AND VAPES?

Difference between tinctures and vaporizing- Tinctures are an easy way to get more CBD into the body as well as being precise in the amount.   Vaporizing is the quickest way to get it into the body.  So, for some people who need it to address immediate issues it is a good choice. 

 

HOW DO I GIVE THIS TO A PERSON ON MEDICATION?

It is a dietary supplement so based on a number of things, you would give them a dropper (or more) under the tongue (can be split up morning and night). If you have any concerns about potential conflicts with medications or treatment plans currently being administered I wouldn’t hesitate to ask your doctor.

 

HOW WILL CBD MAKE ME FEEL?

We can say that CBD has made us feel more alert, focused and has helped our overall sense of well-being.

It's true that what may work for one person may not for another.  If you decide to try it, we would love to hear back from you as to how it works for you.

If you do order, feel free to use the discount code ‘firstorder’ for 20% off.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It works by supporting a part of your body called the EndoCannabinoid System. This part of your body protects and resets the nervous system when it gets out of balance.  It also helps modulate the immune system supporting it out of inflammatory patterns.  Research is also suggesting that it increases apoptosis which is useful in supporting people with abnormal cell growth. 

 

IS CBD CANNABIS OIL? 

Cannabis oil if often thought to be cannabis extract that is high in THC. Ours is extracted from hemp. Both are cannabis. Hemp is the natural form of cannabis. It hasn't been selectively bred to be high in THC. The spectrum of cannabinoids in natural cannabis is high in CBD and low in THC.

Yes, the CBD is different from hemp oil.  They are both wonderful.  The Hemp oil is a great oil, good source of Omega 3.  But the CBD oil is truly amazing. Its therapeutic benefits are profound and wide ranging.  Many people are finding it quite beneficial for neurological conditions, immune imbalances particularly inflammation and pain as well as supporting people with cancer.  So, hemp oil is a good oil.  CBD extract provides the cannabinoids that aren't found in hemp oil and are terrifically therapeutic.

We love CBD. It has shown to have terrific therapeutic qualities.. 

 

DO YOUR PRODUCTS HAVE THC?

Our products have trace amounts of THC, to the point where it’s not intoxicating, and meets requirements as hemp, but is still full spectrum cannabinoids and terpenes. At the bottom of each products description is a lab test that shows relative measures of cannabinoids. We prefer full spectrum (whole plant) extract because of the other wonderful cannabinoids (CBG, CBC, CBN) and terpenes you get with CBD.


DOES IT HAVE THE SAME EFFECT AS CANNABIS?

Hemp and Marijuana are both cannabis. Hemp (which is High CBD, low THC) does not have the same psychoactive (“high”) effect, but CBD seems to carry the majority of the therapeutic qualities.

OR

Our extract is a whole plant extract meaning it contains all the cannabinoids in the natural amounts.   The cannabis plant is both hemp and marijuana.  Hemp is high in CBD with a little THC.  Marijuana is high in THC and low in CBD.  THC is what gets a person 'high'.  CBD doesn't.  CBD is very therapeutic and calming.  If that is what you're looking for and you want a more pronounced effect then you may try the vape.  Vaping can get a lot into the blood quickly and most people feel the effects.

 

CAN I GET HIGH FROM IT?

You won’t experience a high with our products. You will however feel the effect of CBD, which contains nearly 70% of the medicinal value in cannabis - Look here: https://www.coloradopotguide.com/images/blog/Health-Effects-of-Marijuana-Reduced.png

  

WHERE DOES YOUR HEMP COME FROM? 

We purchase our CBD-Hemp Extract from Colorado, from the only certified USDA organic hemp in the country. The farms are just outside Boulder, and grow a hybrid strain called R4 (Charlotte’s Web) Cherry. The reason they breed it with Cherry is for added terpenes and to make a stronger, healthier plant. This farm operates under an industrial hemp license.

The only product exception to this is our children’s SCBDoo tincture, which is formulated by another organic (not certified) hemp farm in Colorado Springs, CO. Their glycerin-based tincture makes consuming CBD delightful (not just palatable.)

We manufacture in small batches in San Diego using all organic ingredients. Products are typically created within days of delivery. We have 3 years experience in CBD and our team has a diverse set of experience that has added the depth and care to our products.

We have two farms in Oregon that this coming year we will be working with. 


DO WE NEED A MEDICAL MARIJUANA CARD TO PURCHASE THIS?

No, you don’t. Our products are derived from certified organic industrial hemp, so no license required.

 

IS IT LEGAL?

We wouldn’t be doing this if we didn’t believe it was legal. That said, a couple of states have gone out of their way to identify Cannabidiol as illegal, or requiring more research/study (Idaho and a couple of others.) Other than that, our position on legality is expressed here:

http://iriecbd.com/blogs/news/68968451-is-cbd-legal

We ship all over the United States and the world daily.

Our hemp has well under the legal limit of THC and is grown legally under an industrial hemp license.

 

WILL THIS SHOW UP ON 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.   

 

IS IT SAFE FOR KIDS?

We am not qualified really to say whether it is safe for your child. If you’re concerned its recommended to ask a health care practitioner knowledgeable of your child’s health issues, and do your own research. We have never seen research that shows it is not safe for children, but again, this is an informed decision you have to make. If you decide you would like to try CBD for your child, we recommend this product because it is flavored and sweet so much easier to get kids to take it.

The best answer is to do your research, consult with your doctor and if you have any more questions please reach out to us!   

     

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.
