CBD

The Basics

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found primarily in the flowers of the female hemp plant. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp, and is known for supporting body and mind in various ways.*

What is the Difference between Hemp Oil and Hemp Extract?

There’s so much confusion between these terms.

Some people refer to “hemp oil” when speaking about pressed hemp seed oil. Others use it as shorthand to refer to an oil that carries CBD extract.

The benefits associated with pressed hemp seed oil are analogous to those found in pressed olive oil. Oil from hemp seeds is primarily composed of dietary fats, which means it can provide benefits for skin and potentially the cardiovascular system but does not include all of the same plant compounds (such as CBD). These cannabinoids -- cannabidiol, among others-- are found naturally in the flowers of the female hemp plant. After concentrating and purifying the cannabinoids during our production process, we’re left with full-spectrum hemp botanicals that retain a range of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids - all of which are found naturally in hemp. We can either dilute this full spectrum extract into a carrier oil to make our Full Spectrum Hemp Botanical products, or remove all THC and other minor cannabinoids to produce our THC-Free Hemp Botanical products.

Will CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?

Rest assured, our THC-Free Hemp Botanical products will not cause you to fail a drug test.

Our Full Spectrum Hemp Botanical products do have trace amounts of THC and will cause you to screen positive on a drug test. As a full-spectrum cannabinoid extract, in addition to cannabidiol (CBD) and more than 80 other cannabinoids in hemp, our Floral Full Spectrum Botanicals may contain a federally compliant (<0.3%) amount of THC. Much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for THC. THC is inherently present in trace amounts in hemp plants. It’s important to understand that the underlying science behind the conversion of certain cannabinoids to other related cannabinoids when consumed is not yet fully understood. If you are subject to drug testing we strongly suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products because individual biochemistry, the potential for the conversion of cannabinoids, and the possibility of trace, but legal, amounts of THC inherent in hemp products are all factors to consider.


Delta-8

What is Delta-8?

Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol is a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in hemp plants. The compound is commonly abbreviated as:

    • Delta 8 THC
    • Δ8THC
    • Δ8
    • D8
    • D8 THC
    • D8THC

Delta-8 is an isomer of cannabidiol (CBD), sharing a chemical formula of C21H30O2 and a molar mass of 314.464 g/mol. Delta-8 exists naturally and can also be produced by converting compliant CBD via a chemical reaction typically using heat, catalysts, altered pH environments, and/or solvents.

Is Delta-8 federally legal?

Read our full legal disclaimer HERE.


Federally: YES!


Those three letters (THC) abbreviating Delta-8's generally chemical structure can be quite intimidating at first glance. But it certainly doesn't begin to tell the whole story. In law, details matter.

The Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 - also known as the 2018 Farm Bill - specifically made hemp, and all of its derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. For reference, Delta-8 THC is:
    (a) an isomer of CBD,
    (b) a derivative of hemp and CBD,
    (c) a cannabinoid found in hemp, and
    (d) is ultimately contained in our products with far less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.

Then there is the Federal Analog Act. The Federal Analog Act is a Section of the Controlled Substances Act and it's purpose is to include any chemical "substantially similar" to a controlled substance listed in Schedule I or II to be treated as if it were listed in Schedule I, but only if intended for human consumption. This is where the 2018 Farm Bill is especially helpful, as it also includes an amendment to the Controlled Substances Act, explicitly removing all tetrahydrocannabinols derived from hemp.

The relevant Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 language, located in Subtitle G (Hemp Production), is as follows:

SEC. 297A. DEFINITIONS.

(1) HEMP.—The term ‘hemp’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of that plant, including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers, whether growing or not, with a delta9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.

SEC. 12619. CONFORMING CHANGES TO CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT.

(a) IN GENERAL.—Section 102(16) of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 802(16)) is amended—

          (1) by striking ‘‘(16) The’’ and inserting ‘‘(16)(A) Subject to subparagraph (B), the’’; and

          (2) by striking ‘‘Such term does not include the’’ and inserting the following:

‘‘(B) The term ‘marihuana’ does not include

‘‘(i) hemp, as defined in section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946; or

‘‘(ii) the’’.

(b) TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL.—Schedule I, as set forth in section 202(c) of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C. 812(c)), is amended in subsection

(c)(17) by inserting after ‘‘Tetrahydrocannabinols’’ the following: ‘‘, except for tetrahydrocannabinols in hemp (as defined under section 297A of the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946)’’.

Is Delta-8 legal in my state?

States: Most, YES! 

There are some states that we are unable to ship our products to due to local state law. This list includes: Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, Rhode Island and Utah.

What does Delta-8 do?

We're happy you asked.

You should definitely do your independent research, form your own opinion, and decide whether our Delta-8 products are for you. Unfortunately, the FDA prohibits us from making essentially any claim about our cannabinoids - whether Delta-8 or THC-Free CBD.

We don't endorse any third-party articles, but you may consider taking a look at these generally credible websites:

    1. Leafly: "I Tried Delta-8 THC: Here's What it Feels Like"
    2. Observer: "What is Delta-8 THC? Everything About This New Cannabinoid"
    3. SF Weekly: "Delta-8 THC Effects - My Experimnent with Popular Products"

Company Specific Delta-8 Decisions

As a company, we have made the decision not to sell our Delta-8 products to anyone under 21 years of age.

Anything Else I Should Know About Delta-8?

Well, plenty. We stress that you should do your own research and be well-informed.

Several main pieces of information (if you weren't already aware):

    1. Delta-8 products will produce a psychoactive effect (e.g., a buzz). Start with small amounts and understand how the product effects you.
    2. Delta-8 products will flag for THC on a general drug test. Act accordingly.
    3. Our Delta-8 nano-emulsions contain much smaller particle sizes than conventional oils. Accordingly, you may feel a more intense feeling on less total milligrams. Start with small amounts and understand how the product effects you.
