Our CBD is extracted using supercritical CO2 extraction and multistage lab tested every step of the way.
Eating CBD takes a while to kick in, but lasts a very long time. (FDA disclaimer – none of our products are meant to be eaten)
Vaping CBD is extremely fast acting but fades faster than eating.
One way to exploit this is to vape and eat at the same time for a super dose of CBD with both fast and long lasting effects.
Now you have CBD active in the body immediately with more on the way.
Short answer: Unrivaled potency. This is BEYOND full-spectrum.
Long answer: Most other CBD products on the market – even full-spectrum – involve some amount of refinement. The problem with this is that the more you refine any hemp product, the more nutrients are lost, so the most effective CBD products you can get are the ones that can call themselves unrefined. Only our products can say that.
As we say around here, refined CBD is like taking a vitamin C tablet instead of eating an orange. Sure, you may technically have more of the so-called active ingredient, but the human body is far more complex than that; all the other botanical compounds in the plant, many of which are potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in their own right, interact to maximize their effectiveness. We keep all that good stuff in there.
Our CBD is DARK, just the way nature intended it. And who are we to argue with Mother Nature?
Short answer: Unrefined full spectrum is more efficient and effective.
Long answer: The source of your CBD matters a great deal. If you have a CBD gummy containing 25 mg of CBD isolate (crystals), it’s not going to be as effective as a lower dose of unrefined full spectrum CBD (like ours), let alone a comparable dose.
The darker the vegetable the more nutrient dense it is, and the unrefined dark CBD we use in our capsules is so dark it’s literally black. This is the TRUE full spectrum state, the most potent and nutrient dense form of CBD. Most companies will take this dark extract and refine it into a light golden form or even a crystal form to create gummy candies. While this does bring up the milligrams of CBD, it also strips the plant of everything that nature intended you to eat with it – we’re talking CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, terpenoids, plant sterols, chlorophyll, omega 3,6,9 fatty acids, and a host of other phytonutrients that are missing in that crystal CBD gummy.
It’s not just about the milligrams – it’s about how effective those milligrams are – and what you’ll find is that dark CBD works tremendously better than anything else even if it has less CBD in it.
Our capsules contain 25 mg of CBD per capsule, along with all those other dark nutrients inside to get the synergistic affect of an unrefined full spectrum product. You’ll be presently surprised at the difference of feel between dark CBD and light CBD.
Short answer: No, it will NOT make you high.
Long answer: All CBD products on the market are required by law to contain <0.3% THC. That’s less than three-tenths of a percent. Our products fall well below that threshold.
CBD-rich industrial hemp and THC-rich marijuana are different varieties of the same plant species (Cannabis sativa) that have been intentionally bred for separate purposes.
Think of it like a Siberian husky versus a German shepherd. They’re both dogs, technically members of the same subspecies (Canis lupus familiaris), but selective breeding has produced vastly different characteristics between the two.
Short answer: Technically it’s possible, but EXTREMELY unlikely.
Long answer: Let’s do the math. A typical single-dose marijuana edible may have anywhere from 10 to 100 mg of THC, which would likely set off a drug test.
Our tinctures contain less than 0.05% THC. This means that one gram of tincture (which is A LOT) would therefore have less than half a milligram of THC, or less than one-twentieth the amount in the smallest edible you might buy from a dispensary.
So is it possible for this to trigger a drug test? Theoretically, yes.
Is it likely? Nope.
Remember, no drug test is perfect. You are far more likely to fail a drug test due to a false positive than from the barely measurable amounts of THC found in our products.
But with that said…you are more likely to fail a drug test from full-spectrum CBD than you are from CBD isolate. The odds are still low, but chances are you wouldn’t want to risk it. That’s why we now offer CBD isolate tinctures.
Full-spectrum does work better than isolate, but isolate still works better than nothing at all.
Short answer: Talk to your prescribing physician.
Long answer: Lots of things can interfere with medications – for example, dark leafy greens (which we can all agree are pretty darn healthy) can interfere with anticoagulant drugs, and grapefruit is a no-no if you’re on statins.
CBD is metabolized by the liver – like most things, including food and pharmaceuticals – so it is possible for certain medications to be impacted by the particular metabolic pathways and liver enzymes used to break down CBD. It’s not a common occurrence, but only your prescribing doctor will know for sure if there’s an issue.
On a side note, we’ve seen people reduce their medications and trade in truckloads of pharmaceuticals for the natural healing effects of CBD. (Obviously we can’t officially recommend that, but it happens surprisingly often.)
But again, when in doubt play it safe and ask your doctor or pharmacist.
(FDA disclaimer – None of our products are meant for pets)
We cannot officially recommend this, but if you’re going to go off-label and give something to your pet, our natural (unflavored) tincture is the least likely to cause problems.
All the ingredients would have similar effects on your furry friend(s) as they would on you. There is some research showing positive effects of CBD on non-human mammals, but nothing has been FDA-approved.
One thing in particular to avoid for pets would be the Tea Tree Salve – tea tree oil contains a natural compound that makes cats and dogs go loco. No bueno. But as long as they aren’t directly exposed to it, no worries.
Yes! We have multi-stage labwork backing up what we say is in our products, available upon request for every level of extract we offer. We even have lab work for our master batch if you want to read all 14 pages of it.
