Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many naturally occurring compounds found in the Hemp plant. Once the CBD is extracted from the Hemp plant it can be taken orally, topically, or by other means. CBD has been celebrated for its calming and relaxing properties, in addition to its ability to heal the body by reducing inflammation. Since it’s non-psychoactive, many use CBD as an alternative to its more strictly regulated and psychoactive cousin, THC.
Does CBD “get you high”?
While many of the products featured on our site contain premium full spectrum CBD-rich Hemp Oil, which does, in fact, contain trace amounts of THC (less than or equal to 0.3%), they will not “get you high”. The trace amounts of THC (and other compounds such as CBG and CBD) in Full Spectrum products substantially increases the effectiveness of CBD in what’s called “the entourage effect”. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, by The United States Federal Government, cultivation, manufacturing, and sales of Industrial Hemp (any cannabis plant under 0.3% THC) products are legal in all 50 states, which allows us to deliver the very best in CBD to you.
What is CBD Oil?
There are many ways to process Hemp, but the most common method is to extract the oils from the flowers and leaves of a mature plant. This crude oil is then distilled and refined further to produce the superb quality CBD oil that can be infused with anything from topical skin creams to oral tinctures. CBD oil is typically full spectrum, meaning it contains compounds other than just CBD, but is still contains less than 0.3% THC.
What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is an isolation of the compound CBD. Isolates are typically 99%+ CBD and do not contain the range of other cannabinoid compounds like CBN, CBG, and THC found full spectrum Hemp oil.
Is CBD legal in my state?
Yes! According to United States Federal Law, Hemp-derived CBD products are legal in all 50 states. Not only did the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill legalize the production, manufacturing, and sales of industrial Hemp (any cannabis plant under 0.3% THC), it also allows the transportation of Hemp-derived products over state lines.
How much CBD should I use?
While everyone’s body is different and recommended dosage vary, it’s always recommended to start small and work your way up to the dose that feels right for you. Most users of CBD report that consistent daily doses work much better than heavy intermittent doses as well.
How does CBD work for things like anxiety & depression?
Research is still being conducted on CBD’s ability to mitigate certain emotional responses, but many find that regularly taking CBD “turns down the volume” on negative emotional responses like frustration, nervousness, depression, and anxiety. Please note that CBD should never be used in place of a traditional care plan without first consulting your physician. Our products do not cure or treat any disease or wellness.
Where can I find the ingredients for a product?
You’ll find all product ingredients listed on their individual product page next to the “Reviews” tab. If you have any questions about specific ingredients, please reach out to us at [email protected]
Will I fail a drug test if I use your CBD products?
Due to the fact that all Hemp-derived CBD products contain small amounts of THC (less than 0.3%), consuming CBD products may lead to a false positive on some drug screenings, especially if consumed in high doses. If subject to drug screening, it’s advisable to first consult your employer and/or physician before beginning a CBD regiment.

How do I use a tincture?
The most effective way to use a tincture is by placing 10-30 drops under the tongue, also known as sublingually. Tinctures can also be mixed with tea, coffee, or low-temperature food. Due to it’s faster and more predictable delivery into the system, we recommend taking the tincture sublingually and washing it down with your favorite beverage.
How do I use a transdermal CBD patch? What’s transdermal anyway?
Transdermal means application through the skin, typically by using an adhesive patch, so that it is absorbed slowly into the body. Patches can be very effective for extended release of CBD into the system, especially when administered properly. To use a CBD patch, clean a hair-free part of the body with soap and water, dry, then carefully apply patch with a smoothing motion to eliminate air bubbles.
