Hemp Oil FAQs

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 these for medical use not for the textile industry.

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. 

Do you make your own hemp oils?

Yes, we created our own proprietary formula. There are currently over 5400 CBD hemp brands and most of them purchase from big suppliers and place their own labels on them. We wanted to be different and have control over how it’s produced, plus we put our own spin on them using superfoods like turmeric, cacao and coffee extracts.

Where does your hemp come from?

We use two wonderful farms in Oregon that grow their 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 (.5ml) 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 20mg of CBD per day then we recommend trying our high potency 3600mg size.
