WHAT IS HEMP OIL?

We believe mother nature knows best.  Rooted Apothecary's full spectrum hemp oil is an extract of hemp plants in it's most natural form possible, containing the phytocannabinoids like CBC, CBG, THCV, THC, CBV.  The star of the of show on this stage however, is cannabidiol (CBD) in a variety of strengths.

Rooted's Full Spectrum hemp oil is extracted exclusively from hemp flowers, the most cannabinoid- and terpene-rich component of the hemp plant. 

What does Full Spectrum do? 

We know what you're thinking and we're sorry for being so vague. Unfortunately, due to FDA compliance restrictions, we aren't able to speak to the virtues of dietary supplements like full spectrum hemp oil. The rules are meant to protect consumers from companies making absurd claims like "xyz will make you live forever" or what not. So in lieu of us being able to educate you, we encourage you to consult your physician, speak to a healer, and do your own research to get to know how this wonderful plant effects our bodies and minds.

Why use our Hemp oil? 

From seed to bottle, each one of our products is crafted slowly with love, care and exceedingly high standards for quality... it's almost annoying. 

1. Non-GMO plant genetics: 
It starts with selecting exceptional non-GMO plant genetics, specifically grown for hemp extract. Farmer c has been experimenting with hemp plants for over a decade and has dialed in the exact strains for maximizing cannabinoid density, terpene content, and overall plant integrity.

2. Extraction:
First, we only extract from hemp flowers, otherwise known as ‘buds.’ Other products on the market are often extracted from the stocks and seeds of the hemp plant, which lack all those beautiful aromatic features of the flower.

3. NO isolates or synthetic ingredients
CBD isolates are ever more present in the market. An isolate is a lab isolated CBD compound, existing in a white powder form, stripped of all the other phytocannabinoids that complement cannabidiol so immensely. Without these other cannabinoids, there is no “entourage effect,” which is now thought to be behind the true healing powers of hemp. 

Rooted Apothecary's full-spectrum oil, on the other hand, contains other active cannabinoids in addition to the cannabidiol. This includes other compounds such as CBG, CBC, CBDa, CBGa, as well as those lovely smelling hemp terpenes.

 

WHAT EXACTLY IS CBD?

CBD, or Cannabidiol as our Medical Advisory Board refers to it, is one of the non-psychotropic components derived from hemp.  It's gotten quite famous for it's almost too-good-to-be-true benefits for our health.  The research is out there, go ahead and Google it!

 

WHAT EXACTLY IS A PHYTOCANNABINOID? 

It's just a fancy word for substances in a plant that "mesh" with our own internal endocannabinoid system. To capitalize on this effect, we specifically chose a full spectrum extract to harness the synergistic power of the plant in it's most natural state.

 

WILL I GET "HIGH" FROM ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS?

NOPE, if this is what you're after, you're probably on the wrong site!

 

WHAT CONCENTRATION IS RIGHT FOR ME?

They all are!  Rooted Apothecary understands that properly supporting our own internal endocannabinoid system has been lost for generations.  We've developed a "deficiency" of sorts that needs to be addressed and maintained, which all of our full spectrum oils work to accomplish.

You have 3 options in a variety of strengths to play with; LOW (500 mg), MID (1000 mg), and HEAVY (1500 mg).  The saying in the industry is starting "low and slow" in a point to understand how your body responds.  These products should be a part of your wellness routine, so there is no need to rush.

On another note, full spectrum hemp extract has become synonymous for some downright incredible testimonials lately.  If you're here to confront a specific symptom or need and feel comfortable doing so, then jump right in!

 

HOW MANY SERVINGS ARE IN THE BOTTLE?

We don't give directions, only recommendations, on our "rebelliously wholesome remedies."  Why?  It's because we believe each person is different and should listen to their body as they use our products and modify from there.  Of course, dosing, concentration and frequency will alter how long the product last.  If using daily, you can expect 30 to 45 days as a good range.

 

WHAT'S THE EXPIRATION DATE?

Full spectrum hemp extract is surprisingly stable, but recommend starting fresh if you haven't gone through it within one year.

 

DRUG TESTING?

Full spectrum hemp extract contains THC.  While complying with state levels, this beneficial phytocannabinoid remains in our product due to our gentle extraction process.  It is highly unlikely, but we recommend that you consult your physician before being too confident.

 

LAB TESTING?

As a family company, safety is one of our top priorities.  Rest assured, our full spectrum hemp oil is independently tested.  It has consistently tested below the limits of pesticides, mold, heavy metals and other contaminants.

 

IS THIS PRODUCT LEGAL?

In accordance with federal and international laws, Rooted Apothecary's products are safe and compliant across the board. All products contain less than .3% THC and is legal in all 50 states. We're fathers first, and we want to make sure we don't jeopardize our family (or yours) for this product.
