Sourcing and Processing
Hemp oil can be extracted a number of ways, but not all are equal. We use the highest standard of extraction is the CO2 method, where hemp is put under high pressure and low temperatures. This process eliminates the need for using harsh chemicals. While this is a complex method, it is the cleanest and safest method of extraction and ensures a pure CBD product.

Will I fail a drug test?
Some work-place drug screens and tests detect THC and not the presence of Cannabinoids or other legal hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that ingesting hemp can cause confirmed positive results. Based on this information, if you are subject to any form of drug screening or testing or are a member of the United States Armed Services, we cannot recommend that you ingest this product. Please consult with your healthcare practitioner as well as your employer or drug screening company. For additional information here is an excellent article from an outside source. View Article
Are there any side affects?
Will it interact with any medications?
Is your Hemp Extract Oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?
No. Ours are from hemp. RSHO is usually using marijuana, a different form of cannabis than industrial hemp. Our industrial hemp extracts are more standardized and will usually have a much higher content of non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through this method will usually have a much higher THC content, as it’s typically marijuana that is used for RSHO.†
Generally speaking, most marijuana producers and sellers (especially on the black market) don’t test for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually more a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC, CBD and other cannabinoid content of the final oil always vary greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays.
Where are you located?
Our office is located in Indiana. Our hemp product manufacturing and warehouse facility is in Jenison Michigan.
Do You Sell Samples?
We do not sell single samples. Because CBD is not a drug, it can take 2-4 weeks for it to build up in your system and experience full effect. It is best to give CBD a full 30 days in order to determine if it is right for you.
Is your CBD organic?
The farms that we work with comply with USDA Organic Certification and are poised to receive certification once it is allowed. Until then, the USDA is not certifying any company as USDA Organic if they are selling CBD Oil commercially. Any company out there that is saying that they are USDA certified organic while selling commercially is doing that part of their business illegally under the certification terms. The USDA is only certifying hemp companies as organic if they are using it for research purposes.
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol is “a cannabinoid with no psychoactive effect.” According to many researchers, CBD may be the single most important cannabinoid ever discovered.
Cannabinoids are naturally found in the industrial hemp plant. The most abundant one found in the hemp plant may promote and support the nutritional health of aging bodies. Source: US Government patent on Cannabinoids as Antioxidants and Neuroprotectants #6,630,507.
Cannabinoids interact with our Endocannabinoid System, which consists of a series of receptors located in the brain, central nervous system, and many other areas. The ECS helps promote/regulate various important biological processes.
Our bodies produce some cannabinoids (like anandamide) on their own.
Our products have all been tested by a third-party lab. We will never put a product on our website that we believe could be harmful or unsafe. You can find individual lab test results for our products on each product page under description.
How does CBD work?
What we’ve learned so far from research is that our bodies have something called an Endocannabinoid System, which consists of receptors located on cells all throughout the body. Compounds like CBD interact with these receptors for potential anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-nausea and other effects still being studied.
What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Industrial hemp is rich in non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids. Marijuana is just the opposite; it’s top cannabinoid causes a “high.” Strains of industrial hemp are grown legally in dozens of countries and imported to the USA legally allowing a window for anyone in the U.S. to add cannabinoid-rich hemp oil into their daily lives.
What’s the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. THC is a psychoactive compound found in high amounts in marijuana, whereas CBD is non-psychoactive found in fairly high amounts in the hemp plant. Our products contain only trace amounts of THC, below the legal limit of .3%.

What's The Right Serving Size For Me?
Generally, we suggest following the serving size on the product label for a full week. Make sure you’re taking it daily for best results. The best time of day to take CBD is based on personal need or preference. After that first week, if you feel like it’s working, stick with that same serving or you can try taking less to see if you can save a little.
If you are not satisfied with the results after the first week of daily usage, don’t be discouraged. It might take your body a week to use it optimally. Or you may just need to take more. Try doubling your CBD serving size or taking it more often for the next week. Everyone is different so you may need to experiment until you find what works best for you.

Research on CBD Oil
Due to FDA regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not CBD can help with specific ailments. We do, however, suggest that you conduct your own research to best understand which CBD would be most relevant to your specific health concerns.
