CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning you cannot get stoned or high from using it. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid found i cannabis that makes the user feel “stoned”. Our products have no more than the legal limit of THC (0.3%), which is not enough to make the user feel any sort of intoxication. Most marijuana strains have at least 15% THC, so comparatively, ours has 45x less THC than found in marijuana.
Our CBD and other minor cannabinoids are all grown in the United States on independent American farms in NC, VA, and southern CA, and then extracted in NC following cGMP guidelines. Additionally, our extracted cannabinoids are:
Our supplier of cannabinoid extracts sends samples to third party labs to test for pesticides, herbicides, and heavy metals. Once the extracts arrive at our facility in Baltimore, MD, we test them again, using a third party facility. Our testing includes pesticides, toxins, heavy metals, as well as the terpene profile, and THC/CBD potency. Once the extracts are cleared for use, we formulate our various products, and then test one final time to ensure the advertised concentration.
Our cannabinoid extractions are made using the cryo-ethanol method due to its efficiency, safety, and purity. Our provider also recycles and reuses over 90% of their ethanol to ensure sustainability. The extracted oil is further winterized (i.e. lipids, fats, and waxes are removed), as those components can decrease the purity of the extraction.
Terpenes are aromatic molecules, excreted from the minuscule glands of the hemp and marijuana plant. However, terpenes are not exclusive to the cannabis plant. They are responsible for both the scent and therapeutic benefits found in essential oils (ex: the terpene linalool is what gives lavender its floral scent and calming effects). In addition to providing cannabis and other plants with their pungent scent, terpenes are used to attract pollinators, and to repel pests and herbivores. They have also been used in beauty and pharmaceutical products for centuries. Roughly 200 different terpenes have been found in cannabis, however only a few are worth mentioning, as only concentrations above 0.05% are considered of pharmaceutical interest.
Our hemp-derived cannabinoids are grown using organic practices, however not all products that we formulate are vegan-friendly. Namely, our dog treats are beef-based and our topicals include beeswax. However, our tinctures, tablets, gummies, and roll-ons are all vegan-friendly.
