We characterize our active ingredient as "Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract", as our products contain a Full-Spectrum of cannabinoids (much more than just CBD), like CBN, CBC, CBL, CBD-V, THC, etc. Our extract includes a host of terpenes, antioxidants, amino acids, flavonoids, and phytonutrients. Unlike many of our competitors, we do not utilize any isolates (a single cannabinoid) in our products, but rather rely on the naturally occuring, full profile of cannabinoids in our proprietary Cherry strain of USDA certified organic hemp. This keeps all of the compounds intact to ensure users benefit from what's called the "Entourage Effect" of all of the compounds working in harmony, as nature designed them to be. You can always view the full test results of any batch of every product on our Lab Testing page. All of our Full-Spectrum oil used in any of our products is USDA certified organic!
Through a USDA organic certified process, we remediate our Full-Spectrum oil to remove the THC, so you’re still getting a robust profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, antioxidants, amino acids, and more. Our Broad Spectrum Extract still includes the cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, CBL, CBD-V, though it tests at 0.0% THC. Unlike other companies that combine two isolates and market it as “Broad Spectrum,” we truly deliver a full profile of nutrients, minus the THC. You can always view the full test results of any batch of every product on our Lab Testing page. All of our Broad-Spectrum oil used in any of our products is USDA certified organic!
We recommend starting with our 1000mg tincture as a great place to start. It is our middle strength offering, and based on your results, you can either scale down, or scale up your serving size. From here, you can decide whether the 500mg, 1000mg, or 2500mg is best for you. Alternatively, if you pefer not to taste the product, you can give the softgels try!
Dosage guidelines are product specific. Follow the directions listed on your product label or select the "directions" tab on the product page.
As your experience with our hemp extract will be unique to you, we recommend following our suggesting serving instructions and testing differnt methods of dosing.

Not to worry! Everyone responds a bit differently to our hemp extract, and you may simply need a larger dose than others. You may be what we call a "high responder." This means your body needs a higher dose than other people, and this is not uncommon. For this, we recommend increasing your dose gradually until a desired effect is achieved. Beyond this, we suggest trying a stronger potency product from our offerings.
Hemp extract may naturally contain trace amounts of THC, as they are innate to the plant in trace levels. We third party test all of our finished products to ensure that they fall below the federal threshold set for THC. We use a Full-Spectrum extract from hemp that keeps all of the phytonutrients in-tact to ensure users benefit from what's called the "entourage effect" of all of the compounds working in harmony, as nature designed them to be.
Similar to how consuming too many poppy seeds may result in a positive test for opiates, consuming certain hemp-derived products may also lead to a positive test result for THC. This is why we are transparent about trace levels of THC in our Full-Spectrum products on our product labels and product pages on our website. As the chemistry and breakdown of compounds in hemp is still being researched, there is a possibility that the bodily conversion of these compounds and the possibility of trace, but legal amounts of THC inherent in hemp products, could cause a positive test result.
Consult your healthcare provider and employer before consuming any hemp derived product, as trace amounts of THC may lead to a positive test result.
All of our broad-spectrum CBD products test to 0.0% THC from ISO accredited labs, and these test results are available to our customers at any time on our website. With that said, there are a multitude of different tests and methodologies in drug testing, and we cannot guarantee that other cannabinoids may cause issues with drug testing. Ultimately, that decision is up to each individual, but we typically advise our customers to steer clear of any CBD product if they are subject to testing. In an effort to be transparent with our customers, you’ll see this warning on all of our labels as well.
Our pet formula has a greater quantity of plant extract compared to our human product. This is because the extract we use in our pet products isn't as potent as our first-run, cold pressed oil that we use in our human products. So, we arrive at the same potency by using more of our second-run oil, which means it has more of a "hemp" taste and aroma. Beyond this, our pet product isn't flavored, while our human product has a little bit of peppermint oil for flavoring. Our pet products also use grapeseed oil as a carrier oil, which is widely accepted as an excellent omega supplement that most pets agree with, while our human product uses MCT oil from coconut as a carrier oil.
