What makes our hemp different?
Our industrial hemp-derived products are produced from 100% organic plants. The full-spectrum hemp extract used in our products is extracted from flower and not from seeds, which results in higher potency and better quality. A lot of other hemp-derived products sold in the US today are sourced from overseas and do not meet the same standards as we hold ourselves to.

CBD is a non-psychoactive compound and produces no '“high” feeling.
Will I pass a drug test?
We do carry products that are THC free but any of our Full Spectrum extracts carry less than 0.3% THC. We are not legally able to make any recommendations or guarantees regarding drug tests on THC free or Full Spectrum products. If that is a concern, we would recommend talking to your health care professional, not consuming any CBD products and/or doing some further research at ProjectCBD.org, before making the decision to consume any CBD.
What if I take prescriptions? Will this have an effect?
We state keep CBD apart from all prescriptions by a two hour window. Taking them two apart helps keep both the prescription and CBD out of the liver at the same time. Always consult your health care physician before use.
Are there any known side effects?
Understand that there will never be any “high” feeling since CBD does not have psychoactive properties. Some people may experience light drowsiness. If this is the case for you, just take your dose before bed until your body adjusts. If you are very sensitive to oils, be aware of the amount of liquid you are taking. Splitting your dose up to smaller amounts could be an option for you.

Isolate vs Full Spectrum
CBD Isolate is pure isolated CBD while a Full Spectrum product contains most of the cannabinoids originally occurring in the plant. Meaning there can additional cannabinoids and terpenes, keeping it as natural as it occurred in Nature. A study from Israel has established the “Entourage effect”. This term refers to the synergistic effect of a full spectrum extract vs a single molecule CBD extract. This study showed that single molecule CBD resulted in a bell-shaped dose - response curve, meaning that when the amount of CBD exceeded a certain point its therapeutic impact declined dramatically. So not only do the additional cannabinoids and terpenes provide their own benefit but they enhance how CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system.
Are your products Lab Tested?
Not only do the brands we work with lab test their products but we also personally third party laboratory test all our products to know what is in each product we offer.

Effects can usually take up to 30 minutes depending on dosage and the delivery method.

Remember that results can vary and are dependent on the dosage and purpose for using CBD. Using CBD daily helps it to build in your system and become more effective.
