We characterize our active ingredient as "hemp extract". Our product contains a complete-profile extract that has all of the phytonutrients, terpenes, and flavonoids found in the plant itself. Our extract includes a host of phytonutrients and compounds, given that we do not use an isolate (one single ingredient in a carrier oil), but rather a full profile extract of in terms of composition. This 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.
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.

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 oil may naturally contain trace amounts of psychoactive ingredients, 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 psychoactive ingredient composition. 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. 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 phytonutrients may lead to a positive test result. We advise you not to use this product if you are subject to testing.
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.
