Q: Are these products legal?
A: CBD is legal in all 50 states. The 2018 Farm Bill defines “hemp” as any part or derivative of the Cannabis sativa L. plant containing less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (“THC”) by weight. This definition includes hemp plants that produce the concentrated liquid extract known as cannabidiol (or CBD) oil.
Q: Will these products make me feel "high"?
A: No, CBD is NOT psychoactive like THC that is found in cannabis/marijuana.
Q: What dosages should I be using?
A: Dosage amount varies based on body weight/chemistry and purpose/ailment.
Please check out the dosage calculator here.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Most people tolerate CBD oil well, but there are some possible side effects.
According to a review in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, the most common side effects include:
Changes in appetite
Weight gain or weight loss
Q: How do I use or take a tincture?
A: Use the dropper to put the recommended dose under your tongue for 60 seconds, then swallow.
Q: What does "CBD" mean?
A: "CBD" is short for cannabidiol, one of the cannabinoids derived from the cannabis or hemp plant.
Q: Could I fail a urinalysis test?
A: Because our products are full spectrum, there is a trace of THC (within the state and federal guidelines and limits). A urinalysis will only detect the presence of THC, not the amount. Therefore, if you require a UA for employment, beware that it is possible to fail an analysis. However, you can inform a tester that you are taking CBD.
Q: I see "mg" on my tincture. What does that mean?
A: The number shows how many milligrams of CBD are in the entire container of your product. Be careful, though. It does require more extract to produce a certain amount of CBD. For example, it may take 1600mg of extracted material from the hemp plant to make 800mg CBD. If it sounds too good to be true, beware. The FDA does not regulate labeling yet, so it is up to the producer/manufacturer to inform customers and to label accurately.
Q: Carrier Oil in tinctures: What is it?
A: CBD oil (crude) is very concentrated and thick, and needs something to “carry” it to your body. A carrier oil will make the tincture more bioavailable to your body, which means absorption is increased. It will stabilize the CBD components and potency, as well as improve accurate dosage. Some carrier oils are MCT (medium chain triglyceride; fractionated coconut oil), avocado oil, grape seed oil, hemp seed oil. Each carrier oil contains benefits and subtle flavors that attract consumers. Hemp Haven Farms tinctures and salves are made with organic carrier oils and utilizes organic growing methods for your health and well-being.
Isolate, Broad Spectrum, Full Spectrum: What? How do you know which CBD product to buy?
Q: I see Full Spectrum on my bottle. What does that mean?
A: A Full Spectrum product has all the components of the cannabis plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes and THC that is less than 0.3%. An Isolate contains 99% CBD and no other cannabinoids. A Broad Spectrum product does not contain THC but does have other cannabinoids and terpenes. Full Spectrum CBD products work with all of the plant’s properties and your body’s endocannabinoid system to deliver the “entourage effect”. Some of Hemp Haven Farms' tinctures and salves contain Full Spectrum CBD.
Q: I see the word “extraction” on hemp/CBD labels and websites, but what is it?
A: Basically, CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes are extracted or pulled out of the trichomes in the cannabis flower’s buds. Common methods utilize ethanol, CO2, extremely cold temperatures or a combination of these. Supercritical CO2 extraction uses carbon dioxide under extreme pressure and low temperatures. The CO2 turns to a liquid and absorbs the plant’s oils. When the CO2 returns to a gas, the oil is left behind, without chlorophyll. A safe, potent crude oil is produced. The Ethanol method uses high-grade ethanol to soak hemp flowers, which are then agitated and strained. The residual oil is heated until only the crude oil remains but may retain gums and waxes. Cold Ethanol utilizes alcohol at extreme temperatures (-40 to -100 0F)! This increases the concentration of oil and reduces the amount of gums and waxes. Solventless Extraction is completed by American Extractions. This method uses no CO2 or ethanol, but physics instead, to create a particle size much smaller than with other extraction methods. The small particle size means it is more bioavailable, allowing your body to use all of your dose, much quicker and efficiently.
Hemp Haven Farms, LLC, starts with great genetics, organically grown, CBD rich plants to harvest into biomass (flowers) which are then extracted by the Supercritical CO2 or Solvent Free processing methods.
