Education

Please refer to the below information, links & articles for a deeper understanding of what our products are all about, and what makes our products the best on the market.

CBD products haven’t undergone FDA testing to assess their safety and effectiveness in treating specific health problems. Therefore, we aren’t allowed to make any guarantees or health-related claims about our products or CBD in general.


The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This means that all of our products (made with hemp-derived CBD containing less than 0.3 percent THC) are federally legal.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in plants and some animals. They’re responsible for the aromas, flavors, and even colors associated with various types of vegetation. 

Nearly all plants contain terpenes, but we most commonly encounter them in cannabis, aromatic herbs (like sage and thyme), & citrus fruits.

Why do (most of) our products contain a trace amount of THC?

It is believed that the “full-spectrum” of cannabis, including all the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds found in cannabis, work synergistically in what experts call the “entourage effect”.

Health Conditions & CBD – 

The British Journal of Pharmacology published a review in 2011 which found that taking a combination of terpenes and cannabinoids may help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • pain
  • inflammation
  • seizures
  • dementia
  • cancer
  • fungal infections
  • drug dependency

Schizophrenia – 
2016 study found that CBD can have antipsychotic effects in people with schizophrenia and doesn’t cause the significant debilitating side effects associated with some antipsychotic drugs.

PTSD – https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnins.2018.00502/full
Multiple recent studies have shown that CBD can help with PTSD symptoms, such as having nightmares and replaying negative memories. These studies have looked at CBD as both a standalone PTSD treatment as well as a supplement to traditional treatments like medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).


CBD Side Effects

While CBD is generally considered safe, some people who take CBD may experience some side effects including: diarrhea, fatigue, changes in appetite, and/or changes in weight.

CBD may also interact with other medications or dietary supplements you’re taking. Exercise particular caution if you take medications, such as blood thinners, that come with a “grapefruit warning.” CBD and grapefruit both interact with enzymes that are important to drug metabolism.
