FAQ

What is CBD?

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid naturally occurring in hemp plants. CBD’s chemical formula is C21H30O2. Abundant medical studies have found CBD to offer therapeutic benefits for a number of different conditions, including movement disorders, pain, sleep disorders, anxiety, and others.

Is CBD legal?

Yes. The U.S. 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the definition of “marijuana” under the Controlled Substances Act. The FDA has regulatory power over CBD. While a handful of U.S. states have passed laws prohibiting CBD (Iowa, Idaho, South Dakota), it is legal in the remainder.

How are products derived?

All of our products are derived solely from hemp plants and contain only full-spectrum, hemp-derived components. Because they are hemp-derived, the products contain less than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana.

Is CBD different from marijuana?

Yes. CBD is one of many cannabinoids naturally occurring in hemp and marijuana. While both hemp and marijuana are types of cannabis plant, hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive component of marijuana. Therefore, using CBD products will not cause any psychoactive effects such as feeling high or stoned.

How do I use a tincture product?

Our tincture bottles are sealed with dropper tops with milliliter markings. To use the oil, start by shaking the bottle, and then unscrew the top, pull the dropper shaft all the way out of the oil, squeeze any excess oil into the bottle, press and hold the dropper reservoir, lower the dropper into the oil, and slowly release pressure on the reservoir which will cause oil to move into the dropper shaft. Squirt the desired amount of oil under your tongue and hold it there for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. Application under the tongue allows for immediate absorption into the bloodstream through the mucosal membrane in your mouth.

Where are your products made?

All of our products are made, from soil to oil, in Utah. Our full-spectrum CBD is sourced from Red Mesa Science & Refining, LLC, an ISO9001:2015-certified company in St. George, Utah.

What does full-spectrum mean?

Full-spectrum is the term used to describe extraction and distillation of all the components of the hemp plant. Because all our products are full-spectrum, they provide all of the wholistic benefits of the hemp plant, not just CBD. The vast majority of CBD products on the market are not full-spectrum products, and most contain CBD isolate only.

What does broad-spectrum mean?

Broad-spectrum is the term used to describe extraction and distillation of some, but less than all, of the components of the hemp plant. Thus, broad-spectrum products contain fewer beneficial components than do full-spectrum products. The vast majority of CBD products on the market are not full-spectrum products, and most contain CBD isolate only.

How long does 30 milliliters of CBD oil last?

Generally, one milliliter of oil per day is sufficient for most consumers. Consumption at that rate will cause your oil product to last for approximately 30 days.

What is the difference between your Active Formula and your Sleep Formula?

Our Active Formula is designed to provide a clean, natural, quick-acting form of relief for pain and anxiety brought on from physical and mental fatigue, exercise, poor sleep, and daily stress. Our Sleep Formula is designed to be a clean, natural, quick-acting solution to help you get to sleep quickly and achieve a full night of restful sleep.

What are your shipping options, and what will the package say when it arrives?
