Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in the hemp plant. CBD is not intoxicating (it won’t make you “high” or “stoned”).

Both are products derived from the cannabis plant, containing cannabinoids and terpenes. One distinct difference is that medical marijuana contains strains producing much higher levels of THC. Hemp, in contrast, produces much higher levels of CBD. Additionally, hemp is mostly grown outdoors whereas medical marijuana is mostly cultivated indoors. Everyone benefits from getting to know their endocannabinoid system via self-assessment and monitoring what is most effective.

The human endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors spread throughout the entire body (e.g. the brain, central nervous system, organs, blood, etc.) that control some of our most vital life functions, including our immune system, memory, appetite, sleep patterns, mood and pain sensation.

In a full spectrum CBD product there is an interactive synergy between cannabis compounds, which has been coined “the entourage effect”. Knowing this allows you to differentiate between products labeled broad spectrum, isolate and full spectrum. Full spectrum is ideal because it most closely resembles nature’s design.

Hemp has a vast number of naturally occurring phytocompounds that interact with the body called cannabinoids and terpenes.

CBD Drops: For best results, don’t eat or drink 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after your serving. Give the bottle a shake and then, squeeze the dropper to fill the pipette with your desired amount. We generally recommend .25 mL as a starting dose; you can add more on subsequent days until you get the effect you are looking for. Dispense the CBD Drops under your tongue (sublingually) and let it sit for 60 seconds before swallowing. You’ll taste the natural terpenes! Repeat morning and night daily, as needed.

CBD Roll-On: For external use only. Shake well. Apply directly to clean skin at the affected area. Avoid contact with eyes. You can start with a small amount and then add more until you get the effect you are looking for. May be used several times daily, as needed.

CBD will not get you high nor does it have any psychoactive properties. Drug tests do not screen for CBD but do screen for THC. Our CBD Drops product contains less than 0.3% THC, not enough to be detected on a drug test. However, depending on dose and body composition, there is a chance it could show up.

We do use coconut-based oil in our CBD Drops product. Our MCT oil is organically grown and distilled to remove all coconut proteins, leaving only Medium Chain Triglycerides. Check with your health care provider to be sure that this product is right for you.

Yes. The TSA has updated their policy regarding hemp derived CBD. Travelers are permitted to carry hemp derived CBD in both carry-on luggage and checked baggage. Remember to check tsa.gov before you travel for specific information.

A TPLR and/or COA is important to consider when purchasing a hemp CBD product. The report gives specific, validated information regarding a variety of attributes of the product; such as: potency (cannabinoid and terpene profile), heavy metals, pesticides, mycotoxins and residual solvents. This information is useful in determining the safety and quality of the product. We’re very proud to offer ours here.
