WHERE IS THE HEMP GROWN AND EXTRACTED?
Our products are made using hemp grown in New York; extracted in Washington State; formulated and made into finished products in Brooklyn, NY.
ARE THE PRODUCTS ORGANIC?
Although almost all the ingredients (the MCT oil and all of the essential oils) are certified USDA Organic, the hemp is not yet certified, as such certification has not been possible until recent USDA policy changes.
With that said, our hemp is grown using fully organic methods and will be USDA-Organic certified in year 2021. In the meantime we encourage you to take a look at our lab reports where you will see that none of our products have ANY pesticides, heavy metals or residual solvents.
ARE THESE PRODUCTS FULL SPECTRUM OR CBD ISOLATE?
In general, full spectrum, broad spectrum and wide spectrum are not scientific terms and mean different things to different people. We prefer to call our products “wide spectrum” because they feature a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes. Since there are hundreds of such compounds found in Cannabis plants, we feel it is unfair to call a product “full spectrum” unless each of these compounds are indeed present.. which is not the case for any of the products that are currently on the market.
The only products in our catalog that are made with CBD isolate are our vape cartridges. We encourage you to take a look at the Cannabinoid and Terpene lab reports for each product to have an accurate understanding of what active ingredients are present.
WHAT IS THE EXTRACTION PROCESS AND WHY?
Our products feature hemp extracts that are extracted using an ethanol extraction process. There are two reasons we prefer ethanol extraction over all others.
Preservation of the active ingredients, such as cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and esters from the plant. This is important for maximum synergistic efficacy.
It is easy to purge the hemp extract of any residual ethanol after the extraction, leaving zero ethanol in the finished products. (Please see the Residual Solvent section in any of our lab results)
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT DOSING IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Every endocannabinoid system is different for each individual and the condition of its receptors at any given time is unknown. The best practice is always to start with the smallest recommended amounts that we indicate on our product packaging.
HOW CAN I UNDERSTAND THE LAB REPORTS?
To find the right set of keys for your endocannabinoid system, you should always stay conscious of the cannabinoid & terpene content.
We perform third party lab-testing on all our products for cannabinoids, terpene, pesticides, heavy metals, mold, microbes & other microorganisms, to make sure there are no unwanted/harmful elements present. Over 80% of “medical cannabis” concentrates (in California) were found to have residual solvent and/or pesticide contaminants.
WILL THESE PRODUCTS MAKE ME FEEL “HIGH”?
Simply put, no.
All our tincture products are formulated from hemp and are non-intoxicating. Hemp is a type of cannabis that contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is what is responsible for the “high” feeling that has been traditionally associated with cannabis. Our tinctures are whole plant extracts featuring the full spectrum of phytocannabinoids with under 0.3% of THC. Please refer to our lab results for each product for exact values (see lab reports).
WILL THESE PRODUCTS MAKE ME FAIL A DRUG-TEST?
All of our products are formulated using hemp, which contains less than 0.3% THC. Due to drug tests varying in what they test for and their respective limits we cannot legally advise whether or not our products will result in passing or failure of a drug test. If this is a concern we recommend that you ask your employer about your company policy, before taking any CBD products.
