1) What exactly is a Hemp extract? What are cannabinoids?
Cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in abundance in the hemp plant. Cannabidiol, and all the other cannabinoids in the cannabis/hemp plant, were patented by the United States Government in 2003 as neuroprotectants and antioxidants. Cannabinoids are a class of naturally occurring constituents of agricultural hemp/cannabis, commonly used to support general wellness. Our Hemp extracts are also known as cannabis oil (with significant amount of naturally occurring cannabinoids), as Cannabis is the umbrella term that both agricultural hemp and marijuana fall into. We sell hemp extract oils, not marijuana.
Because the CO2 extraction used to make our oils yields a full spectrum extract, our hemp extracts contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids, including CBC, CBG, CBG-A, CBC-A, CBN and many others. In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our agricultural hemp extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phyto-chemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.
2) What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Scientifically and genetically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana can be the same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. Marijuana, 99% of the time, has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of these and only a trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’
Hemp is used for making medicinal remedies, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more. Whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally.
*Our hemp extracts are sometimes referred to by people as cannabis oil, as the term cannabis can technically describe hemp or marijuana, and in our case cannabis oil is obviously being used to describe our hemp oils.
3) Are cannabinoids from Hemp as good as cannabinoids from marijuana?
The short answer is yes. Cannabinoids are cannabinoids, whether from marijuana or hemp. Most marijuana has a very low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile, so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable for anything besides THC. Marijuana is usually very high in THC (gives people the high) but usually very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
4) What is the best method of ingestion?
We can only recommend our hemp oil blends for internal or external consumption. CBD is a vegan cholesterol free, fatty acid, and fatty acids are better absorbed if mixed with another fatty acid like cow, soy, almond or hemp milks, CBD can also be mixed in smoothies or juices.
5) What’s the ideal serving size for me, and how often should I take it?
There is no easy answer to this. Our starting recommended serving size is 15 to 3o drops per day but we generally recommend experimenting to see what feels best to you. Some prefer 5 drops, some prefer over 50 drops per day.
6) What is the safety of your hemp extracts? Are there negative side effects?
Hemp is considered by many to be generally safe. We’ve never seen or heard of any significant or negative side effects in our years in the industry. That said, we can’t rule them out. Please consult with your physician before using any supplement including Hemp extract supplements.
7) Why do people use Hemp Extract (Cannabinoid/Terpene)? What are the benefits and uses?
In accordance with federal regulations we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplement products. We can only recommend our products for general wellness.
“ This following statement has not be evaluated by the FDA, we, Canabe Botanicals and the general consensus based on scientific facts are making the following claims.” Hemp CBD is recommended for these following health conditions: SEE CART BELOW!
8) Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a CO2 hemp extract?
Absolutely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our CO2 hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a supercritical CO2 extraction of the hemp plant itself, not the seeds. Regular hemp oil is considered to be a great nutritive food, but it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts do have.
9) Will I get ‘high’?
No, Our Hemp Extract products are all made from industrial hemp, which only has trace amounts of THC, so there is no psychoactive effect from taking our products.
10) Who are your suppliers

11) What kind of testing/analysis is performed on the products you offer?
Our suppliers have a very strict internal quality assurance system, using third party laboratories, analyzing all of their hemp extracts and their final products for cannabinoid potency, heavy metals, bacterial and microbial life, mycotoxins (fungus), and pesticides.
12) What is CO2 extraction?
What’s the difference between subcritical and supercritical CO2 extractions?
CO2 extraction is an extraction process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract phytochemicals from a plant. CO2 at certain temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the dangers of actually being one. It is the most expensive extraction method, and is widely considered the most effective and safest plant extraction method in the world.
13) Will Hemp Oils and Other Hemp Products Test Positive on Drug Tests?
We regularly get asked: Does using CBD Hemp Oil make you test positive on a drug test? Will I fail the drug screen? Most people want to use cannabidiol for their well being, but they cannot risk failing a drug test at work. So, lets jump right in to this one. There IS a small THC amount in CBD Hemp Oil Products. But, the concentration has to be below 3%. The fact that it is so low is why people don't experience any sort of the "high" feeling they feel when using marijuana.
First, its important to note that when an employer, or any entity having a reason to test your urine for a drugs, contracts with a drug screen facility, the employer or other entity has the ability to set the limits of what comes back as a positive for the various drugs being tested. So, for instance, most companies set the limits the same as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) guidelines. For THC (the marijuana related cannabinoid being tested for in drug screens), this limit is 50ng/ml. This means that if the urine tested has below this amount in it, it shows as a negative test result EVEN THOUGH THERE COULD BE SOME THC present. Anything at that level or above, of course, shows as a positive test result and requires more testing to confirm its findings. Its important to note that not every employer or testing entity sets this level, but it is the most common. Its virtually unheard of for any company to set the limit at 0. There would be so many issues with setting the cutoff level that low, that again, virtually no one does it.
So, now we know we generally have a little leeway in how much THC can be in someone's urine before failing a drug screen. Now, its important to discuss the presence of THC in hemp. As you may or may not know, the amount of THC in most hemp grown and all legal CBD Hemp products currently being sold in the United States is 0.3% or less, with most being at or below even .1%. This is such a negligible amount of THC that its virtually impossible for anyone to get any sort of 'high' or euphoric effects from hemp. Most people are using CBD Hemp Oil products in such a way that they are taking in between 1mg of CBD and 40mg of CBD per day. At these levels, the relative amount of THC is so low that any THC present in that person's urine would be low enough to report a negative test result (or passing, if you will), meaning the person would "pass" the drug test. Now, the only other thing to consider here is that, if someone were to take ultra high amounts of CBD daily, say, in the 1000-2000mg per day range, then it is possible that their urine would return a positive (or failing) test result. But, to date, I am not aware of anyone taking this much CBD, although I wouldn't be surprised to learn someone is.
So, what all this means is that the possibility of someone failing a drug test because of the THC in CBD Hemp Oil is there, it is not very likely. But, just to keep everyone safe and clear, it is our recommendation to talk with whomever may be testing you prior to using any CBD Hemp products to get their approval. We have heard of numerous employer Human Resources departments allowing employees to use CBD Hemp products once they have had the chance to research them.
