Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is just one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in the different types of cannabis, including marijuana and hemp. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most health potential by researchers. We suggest you do your own research on CBD and cannabinoids.

2. What countries do you ship to?
United States
United Kingdom

3. Are your products legal?
CBD from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship to all 50 states. Our CBD hemp oil is an industrial hemp product, and contains NO THC and is thus exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act. If you’d like to know if CBD Hemp oil is legal in your country, contact us or check with your local authorities.

4. Will your products get me high?
No, they won’t. Our products are all made with high-CBD, NO-THC hemp oil. CBD is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, is what will give you that high feeling.

5. Does cannabidiol (CBD) show up on a drug test?
Most workplace drug screens and tests target THC and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp-based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products and consult with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.

Yes. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants. From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information cannabinoid content.

7. Do I need a medical card to buy your products?
No. Because our products are dietary supplements, there is no need to obtain a doctor’s recommendation or to live in a medical marijuana state to have our products delivered to your door. However, before beginning any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your doctor.

8. How much CBD should I take?
This is a difficult question to answer because our customers find differences in their optimal serving size. We recommend you start low and work your way up to larger amounts if needed. We also strongly recommend that whatever product you choose, you consume it to completion before making your decision about if CBD hemp oil is right for you.

9. Will your CBD Oil treat my…..?
Because our CBD hemp oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any medical benefits of CBD or our hemp oil. We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online, and talk with your doctor to see if it is right for you.

10. Which CBD hemp oil product is right for me?
This will very much depend on your own personal preference and desired CBD quantities. Typically, CBD products fall into one of two categories: topicals, which are applied externally, or dietary supplements, which are taken internally.

11. Is CBD from hemp as good as CBD from marijuana?
CBD is CBD, regardless of whether it comes from marijuana or hemp. It’s important to keep in mind that hemp and marijuana are simply different varieties of the same plant, Cannabis Sativa. The defining characteristic that makes hemp different from marijuana is its extremely low volume of THC.

12. What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?
Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.

13. What is in your hemp oil?
Pure CBD Isolate and Medium-Chain Triglycerides from coconut oil.

14. Where does your Hemp come from?
Our hemp comes from Colorado. Colorado is one of the states in the US that is allowed to grow industrial hemp in the country and is legal for use in our entire line of CBD hemp oil products.

15. Why should I use CBD from natural sources?
Unlike synthetically created or chemically derived CBD, which removes the cannabinoid from the rest of the plant’s extract, our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant in a process that also pulls all of the plant’s fatty acids, waxes, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and terpenes and flavonoids, along with the various cannabinoids present, for a complete dietary supplement.

16. I heard the FDA was shutting down the sale of CBD. Is this true?
The FDA has warned companies marketing CBD products not to make any claims about the use of CBD to treat or prevent disease. This is due to the fact that the FDA has not approved CBD or any other cannabinoid for any medical indications and does not currently regard it as having medicinal benefits. We make it a point to remain conservatively compliant with all FDA guidelines. We never make claims about the benefits of our products and, instead, encourage you to do your own research and discuss your concerns with your doctor before starting any new dietary supplement.

Our products are tested multiple times throughout our production process before being sold. Best of all, we’re here to help you decide if CBD hemp oil is right for you.
