WHAT IS CBD?
CBD refers to Cannabidiol, a naturally occuring, non-psychoactive plant compound found in the hemp plant, cannabis sativa.
Medicinal Hemp contains only .3% THC or less when the flowers are fully mature, this means that these plants have no psychoactive effects. The primary cannabinoids found in Medicinal Hemp are CBD cannabinoids.
marijuana, by comparison, contains 5-25% THC and very little CBD.

WHO USES CBD?
as research expands, people from all walks of life are discovering the benefits of cannabidiol, AS AN alternative or adjunct to mainstream avenues of treatment.
CBD is used by sufferers of chronic illness and inflammation, auto-immune disease, anxiety, insomnia, neurobehavioral and muscular disorders, ptsd and beyond. cbd is even being used by the wellbeing of pets!
Those previously reliant on costly pharmaceutical treatments sold by a profit-motivated, ethically compromised pharmaceutical industrial complex are finding CBD treatment to be an effective, natural road to relief.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALCOHOL-BASED AND MCT OIL-BASED TINCTURES?
Our Alcohol Tinctures are made using the same method for extraction used in traditional herbal tincture making. Alcohol CBD tincture is great in the evening, as it can encourage rest as well as R.E.M sleep. Alcohol is the fastest method to getting the medicine into your bloodstream, so for acute pain alcohol tincture will be effective faster than our MCT oil tinctures. For folks who find the taste of this old-world style tincture too strong , dilute with water or juice to your preference. Unlike our MCT tinctures, there is no heat used to process our alcohol tinctures, this means that our alcohol tinctures maintain a high concentration of CBD-A . There is a large body of evidence building which shows a host of promising medicinal benefits for CBD-A that go beyond, enhance and complement that of the other CBD benefits. (We now also offer the option of an MCT-oil based CBDA tincture.)
Our MCT Tinctures are made using our minimally processed CO2 extracted hemp blended with organic MCT (medium chain triglyceride) coconut oil, enabling us to achieve our highest concentrations of CBD. MCT oil tincture is great for pets, children and those with alcohol sensitivities. Note that some folks with coconut allergies may have a reaction from MCT oil.
determining best dosage with cbd is a process. achieving a therapeutic impact depends on the constitution of the person/pet using cbd and additionally, conditions treated may determine the ideal strength or frequency of use. The effects of cbd are not always immediately evident, and variation occurs depending on whether an alcohol base (faster uptake, lower concentrations) or an mct oil base (slower uptake, higher concentrations) is used.
as a standard recommendation for our tinctures, we suggest that you begin experimenting to find your ideal dosage. start with 1/3 to 1/2 dropperful 2-3x daily of the strength you feel is most appropriate to your use. hold under tongue or in contact with cheeks for 10-20 seconds for optimal delivery. we recommend commencing at medium strength tinctures and adjusting dosage up/down to find the ideal therapeutic effect. FOR OUR ROLL-ONS, SALVES, AND OTHER TOPICAL PRODUCTS APPLY AS NEEDED.
as an adjunct to our baseline dosage suggestion, we heartily recommend:
1- ensure you’re being consistent with amount taken for 2-3 days, especially if using an mct base, which can have slower onset. a common problem is not taking enough cbd and feeling zero effect as a result. don’t dismiss its impact, try increasing dose!
2- research anecdotal evidence online that may apply to any particular conditions treated (anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain). as regulations were slow to legalize cbd, scientific studies are not yet as comprehensive or available as they will be soon!
DOSAGE (for PETS)
The adjacent chart contains suggested baselines for pet dosage using our MCT oil pet tinctures.
Please note that the Full Spectrum nature of our CBD oil includes a trace amount of THC (>0.3%). We cannot provide specific medical advice for humans or pets, but we do can refer to a growing body of anecdotal evidence indicating the benefits of CBD for animals. We recommend closely observing dosage and effects. Start small with your pet’s dosage, gradually increasing if no effect or relief is noted with ample time to observe the effects of sequential doses. You may find a severe condition merits an increased and/or more frequent dosage. We recommend that once every 7-12 days, skip one day of treatment to allow for your pet’s tolerance to diminish to maximize efficacy. As always with ourselves and our pawed pals, we encourage you to explore research and information to inform your usage!
how is full spectrum different?
Medicinal Hemp is so much more than just CBD content. There are over 90 compounds in medicinal hemp beyond CBD and THC, a full spectrum of cannabinoids, fatty acids, terpenes, and other nutrients.
It is this full spectrum of elements, working in concert with sound growing and processing practices that enable the synergy that’s at the root of what can make CBD medicine an uncannily potent healing tool. To maximize the efficacy of our products, we grow organic, high quality CBD-rich hemp strains in healthy, nutrient dense soil and use the entirety of the plant in our production process.
