Frequently Asked Questions

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is one of two primary compounds found in the cannabis plant known as cannabinoids. It acts as a neurotransmitter and is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

CBD oil or cannabidiol oil is a substance derived from the hemp or cannabis plant containing high amounts of the cannabinoid cannabidiol. Most CBD oil comes from industrial hemp rather than psychoactive marijuana strains; while the two plants are related, industrial hemp does not contain nearly as much psychoactive tetrahydrocannabiol, another cannabinoid better known as THC. In fact, according to the 2014 Farm Bill, industrial hemp cannot contain more than .3 percent THC on a dry weight basis – a nearly negligible amount. In order to extract CBD oil from the cannabis plant, producers need to isolate the CBD from the THC to ensure that the oil will not be psychoactive.

CBD offers its users a number of positive effects including:

Relief

Relaxation

Stress elimination

Pain reduction

Mindfulness

Better sleep

Emotional homeostasis

And many more health benefits

Though both CBD and THC are found in the cannabis plant, they are known for different effects. THC is the main compound found in marijuana and is a psychoactive known for giving its users a feeling of “high”. This is specifically noted as impaired motor skills, changes in perception, and heightened moods. CBD does not have any of these negative effects.

Our products are carefully treated and tested so as not to contain any amount of THC.

CBD is proven to be safe in human consumption. It is non-toxic, non-psychoactive, and non-addictive.

Unlike THC, CBD is not a psychoactive and will not in any way make you high. Though some of our competitors may offer CBD products that contain trace amounts of THC, ours contain none and any THC-related effects are impossible.

Because our CBD products contain 0% THC, they are legal and can be shipped to all 50 U.S. states.

As urCBD products contain 0% THC, they do not contain any addictive properties. There is no documented evidence of anyone being addicted to CBD, either physically or psychologically.

There are no known negative side effects to CBD. However, overly large doses of CBD may cause drowsiness, which can be negative under certain unforeseen circumstances. It is recommended users always know the right dosage of CBD they wish to take.

CBD can be taken through a number of methods including ingesting oils, inhaling vapours, numerous edibles, even applied topically through creams and salves. Each of these intake means has their own strengths and weaknesses and should be applied to serve your appropriate need.

CBD can be used to treat a variety of ailments. Though CBD has not been FDA approved in the treatment of conditions other than seizures, there have been numerous studies indicating CBD’s potency as a therapy for a wide range of health issues. You may wish to consult with a medical professional to determine if CBD is right for you.

Yes, you may fail a drug test even if you experience no mood-altering affects from your CBD-rich medicine. Drug tests are geared toward identifying THC, not CBD or another cannabinoid. If one medicates with CBD-rich cannabis that has a small amount of THC, the THC may register on the drug test.

The same growing techniques apply to CBD-rich cannabis and high-THC cannabis. Much like growing high-THC strains, harvesting earlier or later can impact the cannabinoid levels as well as the terpenoid profile of the plant. For somewhat higher CBD content, try harvesting CBD plants a couple weeks earlier than one would typically harvest a high THC strain.

Yes. CBD inhibits the cytochrome P450 enzyme, which is involved in metabolizing many drugs. Compounds in grapefruit inhibit the same enzyme group, which is why physicians advice patients not to eat grapefruit shortly before or after taking a medication. By inhibiting cytochrome P450, CBD can either reduce or increase the effects of other drugs. In some situations, it may be advisable for a physician to monitor a patient’s blood levels of other medications while taking CBD. See CBD-Drug Interactions: The Role of Cytochrome P450 for more information.

By “CBD-rich,” we mean a cannabis strain or product that has equal amounts of CBD and THC, or more CBDthan THC (usually at least 4 percent CBD by dry weight). By “CBD-dominant,” we mean strains or products that are CBD-rich but have very little THC content.

Yes! Most CBD oil is produced from industrial hemp, the same plant used to make hemp textiles and hemp seeds. This plant contains trace amounts of psychoactive THC – not enough to make you high and usually not even enough to make you fail a drug test.

Technically speaking, yes: extracts of all plants from the cannabis genus were made schedule 1 drugs in early 2017. That said, the 2014 Farm Bill allows the cultivation and sale of hemp containing less than .3 percent THC, which includes hemp oil made from industrial hemp.

We are not doctors and we are not knowledgeable about your particular health condition, so you have to get medical advice from your practitioner.  However, what we can say is that typically, its virtually impossible to take too much.  We use the following analogy:  Can you eat too much spinach?  Well, the answer is yes.  You can.  But, you’d have to eat such an unimaginable amount that its not realistic to think you could truly eat too much spinach.  The same holds true for these products.  Its not realistic to think you could take too much, but of course, at some level it would be possible.  (Again, please consult your physician regarding your specific situation)

Technical CBD Questions

CBD is industrially farmed like any other crop. Our CBD is grown and processed in Colorado.

Step 1: Organic Farming

Our state-of-the-art farming process provides natural, safe, and regulated strains of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp.

Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing

Harvested plants are dried and milled into a coarse powder, adhering to the highest quality standards in the industry.

Step 3: Prosperity Extraction and Solids Separation

A proprietary hemp extraction and purification process ensures all of the hemp’s naturally beneficial phytocannabinoids are preserved. Any unwanted compounds are eliminated, preventing molecular degradation. The oil is then pressed to separate it from any plant solids.

Step 4: Distillation

The oil is distilled to separate the hemp extract from the food grade ethanol used in the extraction process.

Step 5: THC Removal and Refining

Proprietary technology is used to remove any other unwanted compounds still present in the oil including wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments, and any trace amounts of THC. It is then washed and polished to create the highest quality, THC free, full spectrum CBD oil available.

Step 6: In House and Third-Party Lab Testing

Every production run is tested for quality and potency. Each batch receives a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality Assurance. Third-party labs also verify and confirm these certificates on a monthly basis.

Step 7: Our Proprietary Nano Emulsion Technology

Our oil then goes through a nano emulsion process that makes our formulas five times more bioavailable than other oil-based products. This allows same less use of our product for the same level of benefit as products sold by other competitors.
