Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Our experience talking with people has taught us that there are a lot of questions and misunderstandings about cannabis.

We understand. There is a lot to learn. Here are some of the basics to help get you started.

It's important to know that current federal regulations prohibit us from speaking directly about the potential benefits of CBD. We encourage you to do your own research on CBD and make your own decision based on information from trusted sources like science-based articles and your doctor.

Common Terms to Understand


CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of many naturally occurring compounds call cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids are known to interact with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is defined below. CBD does not produce intoxication, but can be psychoactive by having an effect on your mood.


THC is the abbreviation for delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol, another cannabinoid from the cannabis plant, and is well known for its intoxicating effects, or for causing the feeling of being "high."


Cannabis is an annual herbaceous flowering plant that has thousands of varieties all with different levels of cannabinoids that the flowers produce. Cannabis plants that produce greater than .3% THC are commonly referred to as marijuana and cannabis plants that produce less than .3% THC are commonly referred to as hemp.


Hemp is legal at the federal level. The 2018 US Farm Bill legalized "any cannabis plant, or derivative thereof, that contains not more than 0.3 percent delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol ("THC”) on a dry-weight basis." Hemp can be used for many things including herbal supplements, textiles, paper, building material, food, and biodegradable plastics.


Marijuana, or cannabis with more than .3% THC is still considered illegal under the federal Controlled Substance Act even though most states have legalized it for medicinal and/or recreational use.

Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

All animals including humans have an Endocannabinoid System (ECS) that is responsible for maintaining internal homeostasis or balance throughout our bodies, and that regulates all of our metabolic processes. Discovered in 1988, the ECS is made up of cannabinoid receptors found throughout our bodies and is considered the "master control" system. Our ECS can struggle to re-establish balance when we are stressed emotionally or physically, or experiencing injury, illness or disease.


Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids that our bodies produce that are responsible for managing the healthy operations of all of our other systems.


Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant, such as CBD or THC that mimic the effects of endocannabinoids.


CBD Oil is a common way to deliver CBD internally or externally. It is usually a mixture of a measured amount of CBD extracted from the cannabis plant and a carrier fat to improve uptake of the cannabinoids.

Hemp seed oil

Hemp seed oil is produced from the seeds of the hemp plant, which do not contain cannabinoids. It is primarily used as food.

Full spectrum

Full spectrum extract means that all of the cannabinoids that were present in the flower are now found in the oil. Other types of extracts include distillates that have some cannabinoids removed like THC, or isolates that contains only one cannabinoid.

Entourage effect

Entourage effect is the theory with growing evidence that the best effects are achieved when all of the cannabinoids are present and can interact with each other. In particular, it is believed that CBD works best when there is some THC present.


Heat is required to activate the cannabinoids through a process known as decarboxylation.

What are the health benefits of CBD derived from hemp?

CBD interacts directly with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to promote homeostasis along with general health and wellness.

In accordance with federal regulations, we cannot make health claims regarding our CBD products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.

We encourage you to consult with your physician and to do your own research before using CBD products.

What are the risks of CBD derived from hemp?

One potential risk from consuming full spectrum CBD is that you could fail a drug test. There is a trace amount of THC in our CBD extract that we use to make the oil. THC accumulates in fat cells and can stay in your body for up to a month. If you are subject to drug testing, we recommend you not consume full spectrum CBD Oil.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime reports that there are no known cases around the globe of a death being caused by cannabis consumption.
