Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS CBD?
Cannabis oil is the concentrated liquid extract of the marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa. Similar to other herbal extracts, the chemicals in cannabis oils vary depending on how the extract is made and what chemicals were in the plant to begin with. Cannabis plants produce thousands of compounds but the most well recognized belong to a class called cannabinoids. There are several cannabinoids but the two that are most well-known among consumers are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). THC is the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana and it is what people are searching for when they want a product that gives them a “high.” Unlike THC, CBD isn’t known to cause psychoactive effects, and is therefore attractive to those who want to avoid the high but who believe there are other benefits of CBD.
Let’s get this out of the way: there’s simply no way to create a “natural” full spectrum THC free oil. The science involved in extraction and particularly distillation – at least for now – just doesn’t work that way. Yes you can extract and isolate molecules then “re-blend” them, but that’s not a natural process. That was an expert opinion and not our own. You will find the same informational proof while looking the internet for more answers.
DON’T BE FOOLED BY HIGH MG OR ML NUMBERS
We are going to break this down for you to understand how companies use trickery when offering products that are 1000mg in a 120ml bottle for example, but contain only 8.3mg of CBD. As you can see by our chart below, a 1000mg bottle should contain 33.33mg or 33mg of CBD. So where are the numbers coming from? Slick companies boast their products by adding regular hemp oil to up the mg’s. What you get out of a 1000mg/120ml bottle is 8.3mg of CBD (250ml) and “filler” hemp oil (750ml). Although regular hemp oil is loaded with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids and is good for you, don’t be confused about what is actually inside.
HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH CBD IS IN EACH DROPPER?

- 125mg – 4.16mg per 1ml
- 250mg – 8.33mg per 1ml (Best Seller)

Note: The exact number of drops may vary depending on humidity, evaporation rate, temperature and squeeze.
WHAT IS THE IDEAL SERVING? HOW DO I TAKE IT AND HOW OFTEN?
Everyone is different. What works for you, may not for someone else. Some customers prefer 5 drops, some prefer over 40-50 drops per day. You can drop under the tongue, hold for a few seconds, and then swallow. You can also follow it with any type of preferred drink (not alcohol).
HOW MANY DROPS ARE IN A BOTTLE?
There are 600 drops in each bottle.
HOW MANY DROPS ARE IN EACH DROPPER?
There are approximately 20 drops in each dropper.
WHY DO OTHER SELLERS HAVE HIGHER MG IN THEIR 30ML DROPPER BOTTLES?
Higher mg in the same 30ml size dropper is meant to trick you. If you read the label closely, other sellers count the mg of hemp oil used in their product to “boost” their strength. We only list the amount of CBD contained. This is why we stress transparency.
CAN I PURCHASE YOUR PRODUCTS IN A “BRICK & MORTAR” STORE?
We are strictly an online retailer. We found offering our products online helps us reach places we normally could not reach, and most importantly, you can shop from the comfort of your own home – warm coffee or tea in hand.
EVERYONE CLAIMS THEY HAVE THE “HIGHEST QUALITY” OIL. WHAT MAKES YOUR OIL THE BEST?
The process which we extract the oil from the Hemp is what sets us a part from all other oils. We use a slow, cool, kind process that does not damage the cannabinoids VS a high heat process which damages the cannabinoids. Our suppliers have accomplished this from years of research and development.
WHICH ONE OF YOUR PRODUCTS IS GOOD FOR ME?
The 250mg CBD oil bottle is good for daily maintenance. The 1000mg CBD oil is good for chronic conditions. You can double your dose to 2000mg CBD oil for serious ailments and immediate pain relief. We also offer high dose CBD oils: 3000mg & 5000mg.
WILL CBD GET ME OR MY PET HIGH?
No, all of our products are non-psychoactive.
WHAT OTHER (IF ANY) CANNABINOIDS ARE IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
Our full-spectrum CBD oil contains high concentrations of CBD and also other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC, CBG, CBDA, and CBDV. These beneficial cannabinoids are not psychoactive and are being studied scientifically for a wide variety of health benefits. Cannabinoids work synergistically together with what is known as the entourage effect. Our full spectrum products contain less than 0.3% THC.
IS IT SAFE FOR MY CHILDREN?
Again, we cannot administer medical advice. But, we can report that many toddlers are taking these products daily for many of the same medical conditions that pets, teens and adults are using it for. Customer feedback has been given that pets who take these products daily have no ill effects.

If stored properly, an opened bottle will maintain its freshness for 12 months. Refrigerate after opening. Shake well before each use.
IS HEMP OIL LEGAL TO BUY?
Yes, hemp CBD oil is legal. You do not require a permit or recommendation from your doctor to buy Hemp Extract. It can be purchased online and shipped to your home, anywhere in the U.S. We do recommend consulting with your physician before beginning any dietary supplement.
DO YOU SOURCE YOUR OWN HEMP?
Our CBD oil is extracted from organic hemp plants cultivated on licensed farms in Colorado, Oregon, and North Carolina.
WILL I FAIL A DRUG TEST?
You will not fail a drug test with our THC FREE oils. Our FULL SPECTRUM oils contain less than .3%, which is the legal limit for Hemp products. There have been rare cases where someone did. Every individual is different: weight, metabolism, and dosage are all factors.
ARE YOU USDA CERTIFIED?
The USDA has made the statement that they will not certify any hemp products grown in the United States at this time. We ensure that our CBD oil is 100% organic. Our CBD oil is lab-tested as soon as it is extracted by a third party lab, to ensure an accurate amount of CBD. In addition, we test for over 200 pesticides, herbicides, mold, fungi, heavy metals, and mycotoxins. We use cutting-edge testing and world-class equipment to ensure that our products are safe and healthy.
IS THIS LEGAL?
As a result of Section 7606 of the Agricultural Act of 2014 (“Farm Bill”) regarding industrial hemp, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) in consult with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), recently published a notice in the Federal Register (August 12, 2016; 81 FR 53395).
IS YOUR CBD WHOLE PLANT EXTRACT SYNTHETIC?
We would never sacrifice quality by providing a synthetic CBD. We use a whole plant extract (aerial parts) that are rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial oils. The Hadassah Medical School at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem sought to compare the effectiveness of a completely purified CBD extract versus a full-spectrum extract of cannabis flowers containing large quantities of CBD. The conclusion of the study was that the whole plant extract, which contained a large percentage of CBD but also contained traces of the other cannabinoids, proved far more effective than CBD-only solutions in alleviating inflammation and pain sensation.
DO YOUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN OTHER CHEMICALS OR OTHER “PROPRIETARY INGREDIENTS”?
Our CBD oil has only one ingredient, hemp. Our extracts contain 100% organic cold pressed hemp oil and our full spectrum CBD concentrate. There are no other additives, preservatives, emulsifiers, or flavorings.
HOW DO YOU EXTRACT THE CBD AND OTHER CANNABINOIDS FROM THE RAW PLANT MATERIAL?
We use green extraction methods that utilize CO2, which leaves behind no toxins, heavy metals, or chemicals to degrade the product in any way. CO2 is safe to use in food products and commonly found in carbonated beverages, and our bodies even produce CO2 when we breathe.
HOW MUCH SHOULD CBD OIL COST?
We leave this up to the consumer to decide. There are many sites offering similar products, but charge outrageous prices.

WHAT EXTRACTION PROCESS DO YOU USE?
