What does "Full Spectrum" mean?
There are many other beneficial compounds in the hemp plant. Several scholarly studies have shown that together they create an entourage effect, working together to increase their efficacy.
"Isolates" are formulated with pure CBD, as some users prefer products that contain no THC at all. Most of our products are "Full Spectrum", with no additives such as oils or flavorings. We believe that purity makes for a better product.
Will CBD make me “high”?
Our CBD products are extracted from industrial hemp, which must legally contain less than 0.3 percent THC. You may feel a relaxing sensation, but there is no “high” effect.
Will CBD use show up on a drug test?
No. All our CBD products are tested by independent laboratories to contain less than 0.3 percent of THC, which is a legal stipulation by the FDA.
Are negative drug interactions possible with CBD?
Yes. CBD is metabolized by a group of enzymes called the CYP450. These enzymes are responsible for metabolizing many commonly used drugs. CBD can inhibit the activity of the CYP450 enzymes. Consult your physician when using CBD alongside life preserving medications for serious conditions (i.e. epilepsy medications).
Is CBD FDA approved?
Not yet. But with the surge of CBD consumption worldwide, we believe the FDA will eventually carry extensive research and create standards - which we applaud.
