Product FAQs

Technically, they are made with broad spectrum because we use a hemp distillate that has the THC removed (but preserves the other cannabinoids, terpenes, etc.). A large majority of our clients have expressed concerns about there being ANY THC in the product, even if it’s below 0.3% (the legal definition of agricultural hemp) which is the case for all of our products. We use an organic hemp derived CBD which contains zero THC. Until recently there was no real discernment between the terms, however, the conversation has started to include the term “broad spectrum.” Previously, broad and full spectrum were used pretty interchangeably…probably because the average consumer wouldn’t care about that subtle difference. However, now that there is more information about CBD being made available, the distinction has become relevant.

No. All of our products are made using an organic, hemp derived CBD containing zero THC. Our supplier provides a C.O.A. or Certificate of Analysis for every batch of hemp extract so we can be sure it is THC free and organic. We also have all of our products tested at SC Labs in Santa Cruz and post our C.O.A.’s on our website for full transparency.

Our line is made using an organic hemp derived CBD which is THC free so will not show up on a drug test. Every batch of hemp extract we receive from our suppler comes with a C.O.A. or Certificate of Analysis so we can be sure it is THC free and organic.

All of our pain-relieving herbs and essential oils are certified organic. We post all of our ingredient decks on our website beneath each product description for your convenience.

Yes

All of our products are vegan with the exception of our CBD Sport Balm and Extra Strength CBD Sport Balm which contain beeswax.

The approximate shelf life for our products is as follows:
9 months: CBD Massage Cream and Extra Strength CBD Massage Cream
14 months: Restore: CBD + Turmeric Tincture, CBD Sport Balm and Extra Strength CBD Sport Balm
18 months: CBD Cream, Extra Strength CBD Cream, Luminous: CBD Facial Oil, Radiance: CBD Body Oil and CBD Mineral Bath Soak

The only difference between our 200 mg and 800 mg cream and balm is the amount of CBD in each container. They are both effective for muscle, joint and arthritis pain relief. Our 800 mg extra strength cream and balm allows for more relief in areas with extreme pain and discomfort.

It really depends on you and what brings you relief. For our topicals, we recommend starting with a small application (maybe a dime or nickel size dab) and apply as needed. Sometimes one application will provide relief and other times you may require multiple applications. It's really up to you! CBD is non-addictive, non-psychoactive (THC free) and non-toxic so there really is no limit to the amount you apply.

The suggested serving size for our tincture is one dropperful (40 mg), however, we recommend starting with half a dropperful (20 mg) to see how it affects you. CBD tinctures may cause drowsiness in some individuals, so we also recommend testing out the dosage in the evening, if possible. 

Appropriate serving sizes for CBD varies greatly depending on individual factors, such as intended use, body weight, metabolism, and body chemistry. Consult with your healthcare professional regarding dosage and frequency, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have any medical conditions, or are taking any over-the-counter or prescription medications. CBD has the potential to interact with medications. Store in a dry, cool place away from direct heat and sunlight and make sure the cap is securely fastened after each use to prolong shelf life.

Shake the bottle before use to ensure the ideal consistency. This product can be enjoyed sublingually (under the tongue) or added to your beverage of choice (water, tea, juice, etc.). Use the dropper provided which is marked for accurate dosage. One full dropper = 40 mg CBD. Start where you are comfortable (we suggest starting with ½ of a dropperful or 20 mg CBD) and increase dosage until you get the desired effect. CBD tinctures may cause drowsiness in some individuals, so we also recommend testing out the dosage in the evening, if possible. Avoid touching your mouth to the dropper to preserve the quality of the oil and prevent contamination.

Yes. Our CBD Massage Cream (and all our other topical creams and oils) should help alleviate symptoms of eczema. Aloe vera, arnica, calendula, CBD, chamomile, dandelion, ginger root, grape seed oil and Vitamin E have all been shown to soothe the skin and reduce inflammation caused by eczema and other forms of dermatitis. However, we always recommend that you consult with your physician when using a new product.

We would suggest the Extra Strength CBD Cream in either the 1.5 oz. (800 mg) or 3 oz. (1600 mg) size along with the Restore: CBD + Turmeric Tincture. The topical cream helps with localized areas of pain and inflammation and the tincture helps to reduce inflammation throughout the body as well as improve sleep quality which is when we do most of our healing. As always, we recommend consulting with your physician prior to using our products to ensure there are no contraindications with any medications you might be taking.

Yes. Our Luminous: CBD Facial Oil, Radiance: CBD Body Oil, CBD Mineral Bath Soak and Restore: CBD + Turmeric Tincture are all menthol-free.

Yes. Our Restore: CBD + Turmeric Tincture only contains fractionated coconut (MCT) Oil, organic broad spectrum hemp-derived CBD, organic turmeric and organic stevia. Although our tincture cannot be used topically to treat areas of pain and inflammation like our creams and oils, it helps to reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body as well as improve sleep quality which is when we do most of our healing.

Please note: Our CBD Cream, Extra Strength CBD Cream, CBD Sport Balm, Extra Strength CBD Sport Balm and Radiance: CBD Body Oil all contain orange essential oil and our Luminous: CBD Facial Oil and CBD Mineral Bath Soak contain bergamot oil.

All of our topicals are made using the same formulation of herbs and essential oils chosen for their therapeutic properties. There may be some slight differences in the scent of the products due to the other ingredients, however, the scent profile is very similar with each of our products.

We do not currently have an unscented line. The scent from our products, however, does comes entirely from all-natural plant essential oils, and never from synthetic fragrances.

Our products are made using all-natural ingredients, without the use of preservatives, additives, fillers or synthetic fragrances so should be safe for use on animals. However, we would advise that you use products specifically formulated for animals and keep your products for yourself.

Our retail CBD Cream was formulated for acute and localized pain and inflammation. Our massage cream was formulated for use by massage, spa and medical professionals for an all over body massage. In the 1.5 oz jar of CBD cream, you would be getting roughly 133 mg of CBD per ounce whereas with the massage cream you would be getting 50 mg CBD per ounce, so the retail CBD cream is much more potent for spot treatment.
