Frequently asked questions

How is Full Spectrum CBD different from Isolate?

Isolate CBD is pure CBD, seperated from the rest of the plant. Full Spectrum CBD is a whole plant extract that contains all of the trace cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that make hemp so special. This includes trace, non-intoxicating amounts of THC. We like to compare Full Spectrum to a salad and Isolate to a vegetable. While we believe in and prefer Full Spectrum products, we offer Isolates as an option to those who can have absolutely NO THC in their systems for any reason.

What is the “Entourage Effect?”

The Entourage Effect refers to the benefits of taking Small amount of other cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that work together to enhance the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids. We prefer Full Spectrum products because of their Entourage Effect.

What is Nano CBD?

Nano refers to the smaller size of the CBD particles. It's like the difference between granulated sugar and powdered sugar. Powdered sugar can be spread over a larger area than the same amount of granulated. The smaller particles of Nano CBD make it more available to your body. That means it works up to 10x faster than regular CBD.

How often and how much CBD should People take?

We recommend 25-50mg for Daily Support and like to split that total dose throughout our day. For Nightly Support start with 5mg of CBN. We encourage everyone to take notes for the first week and adjust the dose as needed. For Athletic Support or extreme situations we encourage people to experiment with doses of 100-250mg+! We see the best outcomes by taking CBD before stress or injury versus after.

Generally CBD does NOT make you tired. It can help relax the mind and improve physical discomfort, which can be helpful to fall asleep.
