Everything else you may have wanted to know but couldn’t find the answers to… Hopefully 🙂
What’s the difference between Hemp Oil and Hemp Extract?
Technically, Hemp Oil is made from hemp seeds and hemp extract should mean made from the full plant, yet this is not always the case, WARNING. As we stated in the above opening statement, there is a great deal of confusion and deception when it comes to hemp terms. Instead of defining all the terms the industry and advertisers use we will clearly define ONLY the terms we use.
To ensure there is no confusion, at least with our company and our products, when we refer to hemp extract or CBD oil, we are referring to the same product. Our product is truly a high grade CBD.
Hemp Extract or CBD: On our website only. We recognize as does the legitimate hemp industry, that the two terms generically mean the same thing in the consumer market. Which is this, CBD (Cannabidiol) is a potent, non-psychoactive cannabinoid and is typically extracted from industrial hemp plants that are naturally high in CBD and other phytochemicals. It is the most prevalent of over 80 different cannabinoids found in natural hemp. Most commonly used for its therapeutic properties.
Are there any professional medical articles sighting CBD?
There seems to be almost countless articles and reports coming out about CBD. We will link a few of them below for your bathroom breaks at work. 😉

Has the FDA ever approved CBD to treat any illnesses?
Yes! In 2018 the FDA approved CBD for the treatment of 2 conditions: Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) and Dravet syndrome (DS). - FDA Link
As the FDA slowly moves through the system, more conditions will be added.
What is a CoA?
We wish more people understood and demanded them. It’s your right as a consumer to be informed. A CoA or Certificate of Analysis, is a document that spells out what is actually in the product and it’s potency. It is done by an independent 3rd party laboratory.
A product CoA should clearly identify the product. Some businesses prefer to list batch numbers and not the actual product or the sku number it represents. Why? We'll let your imagination run with that one.
Here's the link to the CoA for our 300m. Topical Creme. You can also access this link from the product page while purchasing. We are fully transparent about the quality and consistency of our products.
Can I get high from the possible trace levels of THC that could be found in CBD?
No! You’re much more likely to get drunk from downing a 12-pack of non-alcoholic beer (near-beer). Which isn't possible neither.
I’ve found CBD oil on Amazon, what’s the difference?
Amazon is clear and quite strict with their policy regarding CBD content and will not permit true CBD/Hemp Extract products that contain actual CBD to be sold through their company. Not that this could change in the future.
When you go on Amazon or go to your local health food store and see these “Hemp” products, just know that even though they may contain some level of CBD, they likely come from the seeds of the plant, which yields basically little active cannabinoids, if at all.
What’s confusing is that real, quality CBD/Extract oils actually come from the hemp plant. Coming from the mature parts of the plant (stem, leaves, and buds), rather than the seeds and then go through strict extraction methods.
So the short answer. If you are purchasing CBD from Amazon, you’re not purchasing and ingesting what your think.
