What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of over 85 cannabinoids discovered so far in the cannabis plant. 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 medicinal potential by researchers. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis.
We suggest you find your own research on CBD and cannabinoids from a trusted source to determine if a CBD hemp oil supplement is right for you.
Where does your hemp come from?
Our hemp comes from family farms in Europe where hemp has been cultivated for generations. After tireless research into the political, economic, and agricultural landscape of growing hemp, we settled on Europe as the ideal location to grow our crops. When we discovered a farming cooperative of 750 families nestled in the idyllic European countryside, we knew we found the partners we were looking for to cultivate the hemp used in our products.
Our hemp comes from Europe because domestic cultivation of hemp for commercial use in the U.S. is illegal, but hemp oil imported from outside the country is legal for use in our entire line of CBD hemp oil products.
How do you make sure you provide quality products?
All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality and safety starts with our hemp plants.
From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we Triple Lab Test™ our hemp oil to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold.
We also use a supercritical CO2 method when we extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh chemical solvents. CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.
Are your products legal?
In the U.S., CBD derived from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship across the United States. Because our CBD hemp oil is an imported hemp product and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, it is exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act prohibition on marijuana.
Hemp oil laws become less uniform on a global level. If you’d like to know if CBD hemp oil is legal in your country, contact our customer service team or check with your local authorities.
Will your products get me high?
No. Our products are all made with high-CBD, low-THC hemp oil. CBD itself is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, is only present in trace amounts – not nearly enough to cause the high associated with marijuana.
What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?
Hemp products sold in grocery and health food stores are most often created using 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.
Our CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
