FAQs

Important FDA Disclosure

In accordance with federal regulation we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplements we can only recommend our products for general wellness. Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease. 

Will I test positive on a drug test using CBD?

 Although our products comply with the federally mandated THC limit of less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, this does mean a positive test is possible. Drug tests are not uniform and the THC threshold that would yield a positive result is stricter in some tests than others. 

How much CBD should I take?

 Due to the wide range of use-cases for CBD, appropriate serving sizes can vary widely. Your serving size will be dependent upon your body weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry, and other metabolic factors.
We cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes. We recommend starting with a small amount of CBD, and gradually increasing the serving until the desired effects are achieved.

Why is there a grapefruit warning?

 CBD can have an interaction with certain drugs in a manner that is similar to grapefruit. Research has shown that certain compounds in grapefruit can interact with many common pharmaceutical drugs by inhibiting cytochrome P450 enzymes, a family of liver enzymes that metabolizes these drugs. However, CBD can also inhibit these enzymes when consumed at high enough dosages.
We always recommend checking with your physician before starting a new dietary supplement program. Any instructions you may have received from a medical professional regarding grapefruit should be treated with the same level of care when it comes to CBD products.

Is CBD Psychoactive?

CBD meets the World Health Organization (WHO) definition of being psychoactive. The WHO defines psychoactive substances as substances “that, when taken in or administered into one’s system, affect mental processes, e.g. cognition or effect.”
However, while this may be the case for CBD, it must be noted that CBD is non-intoxicating in its effects. It does not produce feelings of euphoria, stupor, or loss of control; effects commonly associated with THC ingestion. Research suggests that this is due to the fact that CBD does not bind to the CB1 receptor in the same way that THC does. In fact, CBD has been shown in some studies to modulate or reduce the intoxicating effects of THC.

What does High Potency and Standard Potency mean?

Our tinctures labeled as “High Potency” contain 50 mg of CBD per ml, while our “Standard Potency” tinctures contain 15 mg CBD per ml.

What’s the difference between Full Spectrum and Isolate Based CBD?

 Our full spectrum products are made by a whole plant extraction with food grade alcohol. We carefully control our process to maintain and preserve the full suite of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes in the hemp plant. This suite of compounds has potential synergistic benefits which are currently being researched.
Products made with Broad Spectrum and Isolated CBD do not retain all these natural compounds and therefore may not have the same effects or benefits.

How do I store CBD oil and isolate?

 While our products do not require refrigeration, we recommend storing your CBD oil in a cool dry place, such as you would store honey. Make sure to shake well before each use. For isolate, we recommend storing in a dry cool place away from direct heat and sunlight. Ensure the cap is closed air tight after each use. Refrigeration is not necessary but may prolong shelf life.
