FAQ

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA?
Hemp and marijuana are both varieties of the cannabis family. Marijuana is a fussy plant grown in a highly controlled environment. Hemp is a fast and tall grower. In the history of human civilization, hemp is a more common crop than corn or wheat; it is a sustainable source for paper, textiles, building materials and much, much more. Marijuana is not used for its plant fiber but is highly sought for its medicinal properties.

While marijuana is packed with the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC, which provides the infamous "high", hemp has only trace amounts of THC. 

Being completely different cultivars with unique properties, only in recent history has there been confusion on the difference between hemp and marijuana, primarily due to the government's lumping together of all cannabis cultivars in the Controlled Substance Act of 1970. Recent regulatory amendments have freed hemp from its association as a controlled substance allowing the farming, sale, and use of this prestigious crop.

WHAT IS CBD?
CBD stands for CANNABIDIOL, which is just one of over 80 unique cannabinoid compounds found in the hemp plant.

CBD is rapidly gaining popularity for its unique properties. Unlike the most famous cannabinoid, THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. After thousands of clinical studies, CBD patented by the United States’ National Institutes of Health for its health properties, but has only recently become widely available since the Farm Act in 2014 made growing hemp possible.

CBD is derived from the help plant. Hemp is part of the cannabis sativa L.species, but hemp, and the CBD oil from it, has no psychoactive properties of other cannabis species — meaning you get all the supplemental benefits with no high or side effects.

WHERE DOES CBD COME FROM?
Hemp, the naturally THC-free and tame cousin of marijuana, is a crop that can be processed into goods as diverse as cooking oil, clothing and building material. The consumer and business market is currently in the early adopter stages of the potential for industrial hemp. CBD is a cannabinoid derivative of hemp.
WHAT IS CBD ISOLATE?
CBD crystals, or isolates, represent the purest and most intense CBD product available. With 99 percent purity, these isolates take the form of a powder that is comprised of CBD chemical compounds alone. Isolates are not created in a lab and are not synthetic, but rather all-natural products taken straight from hemp plants. Once extracted, it is further refined and made into the pure substance.
HOW IS CBD ISOLATE MADE?
  • CBD crystals are extracted from commercial-grade quality hemp. Hemp, though similar to the marijuana plant, naturally contains only trace amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid, THC.
  • First, the oils and resins are extracted from the plant using a CO2 process to maintain the efficacy of the enzymes and other active ingredients in the oil (instead of a heat processing which destroys the subtle essential oil benefits.)
  • A purification process removed excess plant material and waxes. Lipids are separated. Remaining chlorophyll is removed. The end product is a pure flavorless, odorless CBD powder suitable for ingestion or used in a variety of applications, free from natural fungi, molds, mildew, and heavy metals.
WHAT IS FULL SPECTRUM CBD?
On the other end of the spectrum from CBD isolate is a full spectrum hemp oil. Full spectrum denotes that no cannabinoids are removed during the processing of the hemp and therefore, all the the properties of the over 80 cannabinoids are present. The synergistic effect of the whole plant is called the entourage effect.
WILL THE HEAT OF COOKING ALTER CBD OR HEMP OIL?
CBD has a boiling point of between 320 and 356 degrees Fahrenheit, and heating to this temperature can reduce potency.
WHAT IS WATER-SOLUBLE CBD AND HOW IS IT MADE?
Cannabinoids are naturally oily substances and as oil and water don't mix, CBD is not water-soluble. This affects the uptake of CBD in the body and diminished the effectiveness of the CBD administered. With oils it can be difficult to predict the absorption rate. Water-soluble compounds, on the other hand, dissolve completely in liquids and have almost 100% bioavailability. Making CBD water-soluble means maximium effectiveness and predictable results.

CBD is made water-soluble or more technically, water compatible when they are formulated as micro- or nano-emulsions.

HOW BIG IS THE HEMP INDUSTRY?
Estimates calculate that the total retail value of hemp products sold in the U.S. last year  represent $688 Million in sales with $130 Million specifically attributed to CBD products.
HOW MUCH HEMP IS GROWN ON AN ACRE OF LAND?
In 2017,  23,343 acres of hemp crop were farmed in the United States compared to 9,650 in 2016 and 6,900 in 2014.  Nineteen states now allow hemp farming and 14 more have started legislation. Until 2014, Hemp was not legally grown in the U.S. so it was imported from China, Canada, and Europe.
What is a COA (Certificate of Analysis)?

A Certificate of Analysis is a laboratory test result indicating the batch number, product, and testing date. A standard CBD COA demonstrated the weight by percentage of the cannabinoids and terpenes present in the batch, proving potency. A good Certificate of Analysis also reveals what IS NOT present in the batch such as THC, residual solvents, heavy metals, and/or pesticides.
