Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
The short answer that most people are searching for is that Hemp does not contain the cannabinoid THC, which is the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that produces a feeling of being "high".
While marijuana plants contain high levels of THC, hemp contains very little to none of the psychoactive chemical. This single difference is what most rely on to distinguish hemp from marijuana.
2. What are the differences between all the Hemp supplements on the market?
Hemp Seed Oil – Hemp seed oil is cold pressed and extracted from only the seed of the hemp plant and has amazing omega fatty acids that are good for the body.
CBD Oil – Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the leaves and stalk of the hemp plant. CBD is the most prevalent cannabinoid of 100+ different cannabinoids found within the hemp plant. It contains no THC (the psychoactive agent found in marijuana). The majority of the medical benefits found within the hemp plant are due to CBD.
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract – A Full Spectrum Hemp Extract oil supplement provides the MOST benefits of any of the above supplements because it contains hemp seed oil AND all of the 100+ cannabinoids found within the hemp plant, but does NOT include THC. This type of supplement is what is found in all of our hemp products.

4. What is the best dosage for me?
There isn’t a “one size fits all” dosage calculation, so there will need to be some trial and error while gauging your proper dosage. You must take into account important factors such as the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract concentration in the oil, your body weight, your body chemistry (and metabolism), and the severity of the condition being treated. Any recommended dosages on labels will be a starting point based on averages of these factors, and thus, you will need to test what works best for you specifically. However, we can offer some best practices and things to consider as you begin.
First, you can estimate your starting dosage based on your body weight. A good rule of thumb to determine your starting Full Spectrum Hemp Extract dosage is to take between 1mg to 6mg for every 10 pounds of body weight twice a day, depending on the severity of your condition. For example, a person that weighs 150 lbs that just wants to feel more calm and sleep better would start taking 15mg in the morning and 15mg in the evening.
Second, increase your dosage gradually if the desired effect was not achieved from the starting dosage. Remember, not only are we all made differently, we each have our own unique history with the use of substances, medications, supplements, and other things we put in our body. Because of this, we all have different body chemistry, and this will affect how our body reacts to Full Spectrum Hemp Extract. Increase dosage gradually while continuing to monitor your body’s reactions until you find the perfect dosage that works for your situation.
Third, consult your physician. When in doubt, talk to your doctor, especially if you have an existing medical condition. While there aren’t a ton of doctors who have experience with Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, most doctors should have a good idea of how your body will react to it and can provide you a suggested dosage for your situation.
