Are Hemp and Marijuana the same thing?
Yes and No. Fundamentally, according to taxonomists and botanists, Hemp and Marijuana are different strains of the same plant, Cannabis Sativa. And while they often look, smell, and taste the same- there is one big difference between them.
Marijuana has a psychoactive effect, and Hemp does not.
This psychoactive effect is due to THC. Marijuana gets you high because of THC, and Hemp does not contain sufficient amounts of THC to get you high.
In states like Colorado, hemp and marijuana are regulated by the THC quantity present. As it stands, Cannabis Sativa plants with a THC content <0.3% are considered hemp, and anything higher than 0.3% is considered Marijuana.
What is CBD?
CBD or cannabidiol is a cannabinoid produced by the Cannabis Sativa plant. Both Marijuana and Hemp produce CBD. Unlike THC, the most notable cannabinoid in Marijuana, CBD has no intoxication effect, but CBD holds preventative, palliative, and curative wellness benefits being displayed by medical researchers across the globe.
How does CBD work?
CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes work through the endogenous cannabinoid system (eCB). The eCB is naturally occurring system that is a part of every human, just like the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Through the stresses of modern life and the prohibition against cannabinoids, our bodies develop eCB imbalances, which are linked to many states of unwellness.
Are there other compounds in cannabis besides CBD & THC?
Yes, there are many many types of compounds. THC and CBD are really just the first and best known. There are 66 identified cannabinoids with an estimated 120+ in existence. Most of these other cannabinoids are produced in small to nearly undetectable quantities. The other primary chemical component of Cannabis are terpenes. Terpenes are flavonoids, the core flavor and aroma. Together the cannabinoids and terpenes of the hemp plant create what’s known as ‘the entourage effect’, which in this case is the interplay between the therapeutic effects of these compounds.
What social missions do we support?
We support communities that are at risk and in need of wellness from hemp. We support the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). We support vets. We support hemp policy changes. We support hemp research and development. With your purchases we are putting our money where our mouth is to get hemp and CBD where it’s needed the most.
What is a Full Spectrum hemp oil?
Full spectrum hemp oils are a whole plant product and a superior wellness product. A full spectrum hemp oil is one that captures the true essence of the plant – maximizing all the possible wellness compounds from the plant; other phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids present. A full spectrum extract can be produced using any of the extraction methodologies, and is finished at a key point in the process, making available the full plant oil profile.
Are you lab tested?
Why not a product made with CBD Isolate?
We don’t see the need to take away all those other plant goodies from you. Nature has an intelligence to it and you deserve the full spectrum wellness intended for you.
Why whole plant full spectrum?
The hemp plant contains many many compounds in addition to CBD which have an impact on wellness. This synergy is known as the entourage effect. Working with nature is what we are all about and giving you the best of it all is our mission.
Are you organic?
We do not have a USDA organic certification as it is not currently available for U.S. hemp farmers. However all practices at the farm and in production occur according to organic standards. As domestic organic certification programs come online we will pursue them. Additionally, the products we blend with our formulas are certified organic.
We third-party test every batch of our products. Our testing lab partner is Botanacor, operated and owned by the same teams who own and operated Colorado State licensed Agricor. To access each of our batches’ lab reports, click here.
