Q – What does broad spectrum mean?

A – All the good things you get from a plant, the good things that come from a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes, antioxidants, nutrients and other plant compounds present in the hemp plant. It can provide a greater effect than CBD alone as all the cannabinoids work together, as nature intended, in what is known as the Entourage Effect. A recent study from Israel has documented the superior therapeutic properties of whole-plant (broad spectrum) cannabis extract over single-molecule (isolated) cannabidiol (CBD).

ENTOURAGE EFFECT is the idea that the hemp plant’s best health effects come from all of its components working together. This includes hemp’s cannabinoids, such as CBD as well as other parts, such as terpenes and flavonoids.

Q  – What is CBD?

A CBD stands for Cannabidiol, which is a compound extracted from the hemp plant. It’s one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis, which are unique compounds found in hemp that are known to promote health and keep people resilient to changes in their environment.

Q – How does it work?

A – CBD works within your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS helps to regulate a variety of processes like eating, sleeping, relaxation, recovery and cognition. It’s like your body’s operating system. CBD acts upon receptors in the ECS and well as limits the breakdown of anandamide (often called the bliss molecule). In doing so, CBD can help your ECS function at its best. 

Q – Is it legal?
A – Under the recently passed 2018 Farm Bill, hemp and hemp derivatives like CBD have been permanently removed from the federal Controlled Substances Act and are no longer considered illegal by the DEA as long as they contain less than 0.3% THC

Q – What are the benefits of CBD?

A – CBD has been the subject of many peer reviewed medical studies in regard to various aspects of human health. However, due to DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994) guidelines, we cannot specifically state conditions CBD may address. We encourage you to do your own research, consult with healthcare providers familiar with CBD, and use PubMed.gov as a resource as newly published research is coming out in real time.

Q – What about product certification, extraction methods, sourcing and THC levels?

A – The broad spectrum hemp we use is ORGANICALLY SOURCED. We found a source that goes the extra mile to ensure safety and quality. Our source never uses harmful gasses, solvents or heat to process and extract our oil. Solvent-based processing methods strip the plant of the true therapeutic power and creates degradation of the vitamins, minerals and therapeutic cannabinoids…the plants true potential.

Our oil uses a patented, proprietary, cold-pressed extraction method to cold-press industrial hemp, which we in turn use to create all our artesian offering. We want to provide our customers confidence knowing they are getting the purest, cleanest product grown and processed in the USA.

Our offerings are non-psychoactive, derived from 100% industrial grade hemp and harvested with non-detectable levels of THC with lab testing at under 0.003%.

Q – What about third party lab testing?

A 3rd party testing files of lab reports are available upon request.
