We have compiled answers to the most frequently asked CBD questions below.
What is Hemp?
Hemp, legally classified as any cannabis plant containing <0.3% THC. Hemp is part of the cannabis family, though it’s of the same family as marijuana and offers a lot of the same benefits, there is no high or psychoactive effect. So you can still function at work and enjoy a normal life.
What is Hemp Extract?
Hemp extract is not to be confused with Hemp Seed extract. Hemp Seed extract comes from pressed seeds of the plant which contain no actual CBD but do contain Omega fatty acids which are great for general health.
A lot of confusion is caused by some companies labeling hemp-seed oil as hemp oil. To ensure you’re buying CBD, you must always check for a certificate of analysis.
Hemp extract, CBD extract, CBD oil, Phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, Cannabis Oil, Cannabidiol are the typical terms used for Hemp products that contain CBD. CBD & other cannabinoids are extracted from any cannabis plant that contains <0.3% THC at a dry weight, pre-processing (Legal definition). CBD and cannabinoids can come from the whole plant, just the flowers or the stalks, stems, and leaves.
The key to understanding what it is you’re buying is to ALWAYS check the lab reports (COA) to ensure it states CBD/Cannabidiol content.
Will I get 'HIGH' from CBD Hemp Oil?
No. Absolutely not! The amount of THC in CBD oil has to be under <0.3% THC to be legal. You will not experience any psychoactive effect or high.
How does CBD work?
CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes work through the endogenous cannabinoid system/endocannabinoid system (eCB). The eCB is a 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 reportedly linked to many states of un-wellness.
Are Absolute Nature CBD products 3rd Party Lab-Tested?
Yes Absolutely! We believe 3rd Party Lab Testing should be standard across the board. All of our testing is carried out through ProVerde Laboratories. You can contact them at 617-221-3356 if you would like to check us out.
Our lab reports (COA’s) are also publicly displayed along with our practices. Visit our 3rd Party Lab Testing page.
Are Absolute Nature CBD products Organic?
We take every precaution necessary to ensure our products are grown, cultivated, and processed using organic practices. All plant material undergoes testing before production.
To say ALL of our final products are USDA certified organic simply wouldn’t be right. Currently only our CBD Oils are USDA certified via ONE CERT.
The remaining products are produced using hemp and ingredients grown using organic practices and are in the process of USDA Organic certification.
Are Absolute Nature CBD products 100% Natural
Absolutely 100%! We only use all natural ingredients. No nasties, no additives, no preservatives, no sulfates, and no harsh chemicals!
Where is Absolute Nature's Cannabis Grown?
All of our cannabis/hemp is grown in the USA! Colorado to be exact. Purchasing a product that’s produced the USA is so important because of strict regulations and guidelines we are held to along with the fact we support and create jobs within the USA!
What you see now within the industry is some competitors will have super low prices of oil that can be just CBD isolate brought from outside the country, with the majority of imported CBD coming from China. Importing CBD can be very dangerous because there’s no identifiable source, and the growing practices are nowhere near as strict as USA standards. PERIOD!
Does Absolute Nature disclose all ingredients?
Yes 100%. You will never see “other ingredients” displayed on our labels without disclosing what they are. You must always know what you are taking! Our ingredients can always be validated in our 3rd party reports.
What does Entourage Effect mean?
In a nutshell, it’s a synergistic effect that the many components within the cannabis plant interact with the human body to produce a stronger influence/benefit while all together, than with the elements alone. This is why we currently provide whole-plant full-spectrum CBD oils only. It really is the gold standard and anything less you are wasting time and money, in our opinion, because you are missing critical components we feel absolutely essential for maximum benefit. It does cost a little more, and you get what you pay for. Learn more about the entourage effect.
Will Absolute Nature CBD oils fail a drug test?
To be safe and honest, you could Yes! However, there is such a small amount of THC (under <0.3%) that more than likely you will not fail, but we advise you don’t risk it without first discussing this matter in advance with your employer.
If your job requires any drug testing, we highly recommend you to be safe and stay away from our product until you can pre-agree with your employer/doctor that you will be using a CBD product.
It’s also imperative to understand your companies testing process and what they look for when screening. Some companies carry our cannabinoid tests while others carry out THC only tests. If they test for cannabinoids, you can fail even using an isolated CBD product.
The above is true for any CBD product. There is no way around it.
We value your safety and ability to provide for your family more than making a sell.
What are the reccomended dosages for your products?
Due to current regulations and federal laws, we cannot provide specific dosing.
Everyone is different, and at this time there is no set standard, and it’s actually illegal to recommend dosing unless you are a medical professional managing the care of an individual.
We do offer this 3rd party CBD Dosage Calculator to help you in finding out what does is right for what ailment you are experiencing.
