As you explore the multitude of cannabinoid products on the market, ask these 4 important questions to ensure that you’re only consuming the safest and highest quality products:
Where are the plants grown? Are they grown safely?

All forms of cannabinoid-producing plants are bioaccumulators, which means they absorb compounds and substances from the soil. While this is beneficial for the plants to grow dense and tall, it can allow contaminants, metals or pollutants to seep from the soil into the plants and eventually make their way into cannabinoid products. Before buying a cannabinoid product, ask whether the plants are grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides. It’s also a good idea to ask where the plants for the cannabinoid product were grown. If dispensary or retail store workers can confidently answer the question, it’s a sign that they understand and care about the products they’re providing.
What type and potency of cannabinoids does the product contain?

Answer: Our products are made with hemp oil from organic plants and our products do not contain any animal products, are non-gmo, and are not tested on animals. Also, our products come from plants grown in Colorado, USA.

It is important to know the potency of the cannabinoid product that you’re going to incorporate into your healthcare routine. Products can contain all different levels of cannabinoids. Some products contain higher amounts of the psychoactive cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has shown to provide an array of therapeutic benefits but will also cause a user to experience a high. Others may have more cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that won’t cause a high but has shown to offer neuroprotectant and antioxidant properties.

Answer: By law all of our products contain less than .3{8ebd017cf3c24e8a0927e2a7cdb13b4c41ca9609d04ac958d2b3a2e1b72af20a} THC. Our products contain amounts of CBD ranging from 250 mg to 3,000 mg and come in extracts (tinctures), capsules, topicals, and products specially developed for your animal friends.

It’s also a good idea to know how much of a particular cannabinoid a product contains. For example, if you’re looking for a CBD product, compare the differences in concentration of CBD among products.

Answer: Our products contain amounts of CBD ranging from 250 mg to 3,000 mg and each batch is tested by an independent testing laboratory.

It’s extremely important that cannabinoid products are tested for any outside contamination. Because of the plant’s identity as a bioaccumulator, toxins like microbes, mold, heavy metals, and other possible contaminants can make their way into cannabinoid products. Always ask whether an independent accredited lab has tested the cannabinoid product for safety and quality before you buy or consume it.
What, if any, are the other ingredients used in the product?

Answer: Our products only contain CBD and MCT oil. MCT can also help you lose weight because it is quickly burned and metabolized. It gets absorbed directly from the gut into the liver and doesn’t get stored as fat but rather burned quickly and turned into energy. In a 2001 study, researchers found that the men and women in their double blind study who took MCT had double the weight loss than the other group who did not take MCT (Tsuji, H. et al., 2001).

While some people prefer to consume pure cannabinoid products, some products, such as edibles and tinctures, include other ingredients beyond the cannabinoids and other natural constituents themselves. Cannabinoid products are designed to encourage homeostasis, so you don’t want to tamper with this balance by selecting products that contain artificial ingredients. Be sure to ask whether any additional ingredients that are added to products are all natural and not synthetic.

Answer: All of the ingredients in our products are completely natural and not synthetic. The reason for the type of processing we do is that more of the good ingredients are left in the product. We live in a world that processes our food until there is no food value left. Our products are a vegetarian food source.
