Answers to common cannabinoid and order-related questions.



Cannabinoids are compounds produced by cannabis plants that interact with receptors in the body and brain. The most prevalent cannabinoid found in hemp is cannabidiol, CBD, but new compounds continue to surface in the cannabis industry as research evolves.

So far, over 100 different cannabinoids have been uncovered, each presumably with its own purpose. Our product lineup consists of a variety of cannabinoids including CBD, CBG, CBC, CBT, and CBN. They come in a multitude of applications from internal tinctures to external topicals and more.

Think of what a fresh, woody pine tree smells like. Now lavender. Those potent aromas come from compounds known as terpenes. They are what give plants their unique fragrance and character. There are over 100 different terpenes in cannabis. Today, it is thought that terpenes may also contribute to the plant’s effects.*

All our products fall under three different categories—full spectrum, broad spectrum or isolate. Each describes what cannabinoids are included or excluded in the product. 

Full Spectrum

CBD is the dominant compound in hemp, but most strains include a small amount of THC, along with other cannabinoids. The legal limit of THC in hemp is 0.3 percent by dry weight.  Full spectrum refers to the inclusion of THC in an extract, even at this limited amount. The addition of THC is thought to boost the overall effectiveness of an extract by a phenomenon known as the entourage effect. 

Broad Spectrum 

Like full spectrum oils, broad spectrum extracts include a blend of the plant’s naturally occurring cannabinoids, except without THC. Some people may prefer broad spectrum products because they want to avoid THC as a personal preference.


These singular compounds are exactly what they sound like, an isolated cannabinoid that is 99 percent pure. Isolates come in powder form. People may prefer isolates due to their tastelessness, versatility, measurability and texture. 

Bioavailability refers to the degree and rate an active ingredient, in our case cannabinoids, absorb into the bloodstream. Cannabinoids are fat-soluble, meaning they dissolve in fat, not water. Our bodies are over 60 percent water, so we resist cannabinoid absorption to a degree. The bioavailability of smoke and vape products is around 40 percent. Sublingual, under the tongue, tincture applications and edibles range from 10 to 20 percent. *

Absorbed cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system, a signaling network in the body and brain that is thought to be involved with regulating mood, pain, appetite, and memory.

Everyone is different, so there is no straight answer. We cannot guarantee you will pass a drug test while using our products. People who are concerned about failing a test should consider isolates or broad spectrum formulas. However, there is a possibility even broad spectrum oils contain an immeasurable amount of THC. We cannot be held responsible if a test comes back with positive or false-positive results.

Our products are made with CO2-extracted oils, one of the cleanest extraction methods available. Each formula is made with natural, high-quality ingredients—no fillers. Though not required for hemp companies, we comply with the Food and Drug Administration’s Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for food manufacturers, and we are OU Kosher certified and vegan.

CBD oils and softgels are commonly used cannabinoid products. Oils are taken sublingually, under the tongue, or can be mixed in with food and drinks. Capsules are a suitable option for those who do not like the natural flavor of an extract or prefer a traditional ingestion method. 

A concentrate contains high levels of a specific cannabinoid. Concentrates are typically vaporized, smoked or dabbed. Smoking and vaping results in a quicker onset, making them more suited for those who have tried other cannabinoid products. In addition to various cannabinoid cartridges, we offer crumble (made from broad spectrum oil) and shatter (made from isolate) concentrates. 

Topicals are applied directly on the skin, making them useful for those who have a specific trouble area they want to target. Some people choose to use cannabinoid creams or lotions in their daily skincare routines, while others prefer them for muscles or joints.*

Both distillates and isolates are versatile forms of cannabinoids that can be easily mixed with other ingredients. Distillates are an oil and isolates are a powder. Both are considered raw materials that can be used in similar ways such as formulating, ingesting, vaporizing, or using topically.

Yes, all of our extracts are tested to ensure there are no residual solvents. We also measure the percentages and milligram amounts of 18 different cannabinoids on each extract’s certificate of analysis. Customers can find a product’s COA on our online database by searching the batch number located on the packaging.

Microbial and mycotoxin test results are included on COAs for oils, topicals, gummies and softgels.
