Hemp oil extract vs. CBD oil?
Rooted Apothecary's hemp extracts always contain the lab verified milligrams of CBD on the label. They also contain other important compounds and terpenes of the plant. This makes hemp extract superior to "CBD oil", and this is why our products always contain hemp oil extract not just CBD oil.
What is in our CBD oils and tinctures?
Rooted Apothecary’s full spectrum organic CBD hemp oil is extracted with a gentle CO2 process from the aerial hemp flowers. This is very important, as most CBD oils are derived from the entire plant including stalks and seeds. This means they often lack a complete terpene and cannabinoid profile including CBC, CBG, THCV, THC, CBV. Mother nature created at least 120 terpenes and over 113 cannabinoids in the hemp plant, many of which we are still learning about. The combined benefits of terpenes and other cannabinoids is called "entourage effect."
This "entourage effect" is produced when multiple cannabinoids interact with each other.
Hemp oil is extracted from the flowers while hemp seed oil is extracted from the seeds, both have very different profiles and benefits.
How long will a bottle last?
Taken at the recommended dosage, our products usually last 3 to 6 weeks. Once opened, products are best when used within 12 months.
Why do you blend CBD with essential oils?
At Rooted Apothecary, we believe in the power of natural health. For centuries, essential oils have been relied upon around the world. Including organic oils like lavender, chamomile, sage and others is a powerful combination.
Does CBD make people "high"?
CBD is legal at the federal level, if it made people intoxicated, this would not be the case. So no, CBD will not make you high.
How can I choose a good CBD product?
When shopping for CBD products you must ensure purity, dosage, and source with lab testing. All of our products are run through a precise lab testing process to ensure their purity and dosage accuracy. And, we only source our products from the best Colorado organic farms.
What effects should I expect from CBD?
Due to FDA regulations, we cannot make health claims regarding the effects of CBD. However the internet has thousands of sources for scientific and anecdotal evidence. We recommend searching for credible CBD studies on pubmed.gov and greenmedinfo.com.
Is CBD oil legal?
CBD oil that is extracted from industrial hemp is federally legal. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, Industrial hemp is defined as having less than 0.3% THC, which is what produces the "high" that makes cannabis or "marijuana" famous. CBD is a different compound, therefore it will not generate that effect. This is part of the reason why CBD is not controlled like THC. However state law may vary, we recommend doing your own research before purchasing.
Hemp oil vs. hemp seed oil?
Hemp oil is an extract from the flower or "aerial parts" of the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil, as you might expect, is derived from the seeds. Hemp oil from the flower contains far more terpenes and compounds than hemp seed oil. Both come from the same plant and our products contain both, but for very different purposes.
Full-spectrum vs. THC-free?
Our full spectrum products contain less than the federally legal THC limit of .3%. Our THC-free products only contain hemp-derived CBD. Full spectrum products also contain other cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, CBC and other compounds.
