Hemp Oil FAQs

What is Cellular Deconstruction™ Technology?

Cellular Deconstruction™ Technology (CDT) is an innovative extraction process that gently opens the walls of cells, providing access to intact and valuable molecules which are collected and refined (a process where we remove unpleasant tasting plant wax, chlorophyll and particularly unpalatable terpenes). This natural process takes plant-based extracts to a new level, achieving greater purity and potency than other processes.

CDT uses no CO2, cold or hot pressure, ethanol or petrochemicals that can damage the molecular structure or leave a toxic residue. This process creates an ultra pure and clean product that keeps all phytonutrients and terpenes intact, but in a nearly 100% bioavailable state that our bodies can utilize quickly and efficiently. Our tinctures work faster and more efficiently than conventionally extracted products. 

Do you use medicinal or industrial hemp?

The strains of hemp we use are classified as industrial hemp, because it contains less than .3 percent THC, but it is considered medicinal because it contains 20% CBD. The farms we use grow hemp for the medical and supplement industry and practice organic farming techniques.

Full spectrum hemp oil vs. hemp seed oil?

Full spectrum means the oil contains over 100 different cannabinoids, terpenes and phytonutrients in addition to the naturally high CBD content. These cannabinoids are only found in the hemp flower, leaves, stem and stalks, not the seed. Read labels carefully that you are purchasing full spectrum hemp plant extract and not hemp seed oil. While quite tasty in salads, it is not true hemp plant oil. 

Where does your hemp come from?

We utilize several Wisconsin farms that grow hemp without the use of pesticides or herbicides. We use 3rd party labs to make sure there are no toxins, heavy metals, mold or solvents in our final product and that it contains the correct amount of CBD as listed on the bottle. 

Why do you use MCT oil as a base?

We prefer MCT oil because it has a great shelf life and will not oxidize as fast as PUFA oils (polyunsaturated fatty acids) like hemp seed or olive oil. We also like that MCT oil is easily metabolized and has wonderful fat burning and cognitive effects. 

Can I use it topically?

We believe great health starts from the inside out which is why we promote oral tinctures and a great diet. We found tinctures to have the best efficacy and benefits, but you can certainly use them topically for skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne. We like to add a dropper full to our Sensual Love Oil and use it as a sore muscle rub.

There are no directions. How much should I take?

Dosage will vary from person to person. We recommend starting with one serving (1ml) once or twice a day and gradually increase until you see some benefits. Some folks see results right away while some people need high doses. If you need more than 30mg of CBD per day then we recommend trying our high potency 3600mg size.
