Why do you source from organically grown materials?
It is very important to us to source from organically grown materials because in our own research plants grown sustainably produce more healing properties. Just like humans tend to be more healthy with natural foods, we feel medicinal herbs grown in their natural state are not only healthier, but provide more healing compounds for their human users. This is not just a feeling. Many studies have shown plants respond to how they are grown. We source our other raw ingredients, like alcohol for our tinctures and elixirs, from organic sources as well. An organic certification gives us more confidence as to how the raw material was treated through production.
Why did you choose Organic cane alcohol for your extracts?
We utilize 190 proof certified organic alcohol because it works to strip the most healing benefits from the plants. Additionally, alcohol helps encourage absorption of herbal constituents into the bloodstream. Our pharmaceutical grade, non-GMO cane alcohol is made from sugar cane grown in South America and has a hint of butterscotch pudding taste although it still allows herbal aromas to show through.
Why does my tincture taste like citrus?
Our hemp and cannabis tinctures feature a natural citrus flavor, which is derived from the plant essential oil called d-limonene. This essential oil, also known as a terpene, is commonly found in lemons and orange peels. We have chosen to add in D-limonene to help with the flavor, as well as for its many healthful benefits, including mood boosting, anti-oxidant, and anti-flammatory properties. D-Limonene is a safe, non-toxic food additive. If perhaps you find the citrus flavor is too overpowering, we suggest adding your tincture to water, tea, or other beverages.
how much CBD pet oil should I give my pet?
Our CBD Pet Oils are formulated for 170mg CBD total. We suggest 1mL as a serving for most animals, which is equal to approximately 5.5mg CBD.
Suggested Oral dosage: Varies by body weight. It is advised to dose low initially and adjust upwards as the circumstances direct. For all cats, and dogs under 75 lbs: Recommended to start at 5mg-10mg 1-2x daily. For dogs over 75 lbs: Recommended to start at 10mg-15mg 1-2x daily.
Why is my tincture green? Why are there particles?
This is totally normal, as our tinctures are made with whole-plant material. Cannabis and hemp extracts are almost always green due to the chlorophyll. The texture of our tinctures is due to the vegetable glycerin. Separation is natural, as the glycerin likes to separate from the plant material over time. Shake well!!
Has my tincture gone bad?
Your tincture has not likely gone bad. Vegetable glycerin, as well as the small amounts of alcohol present, acts as a natural preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria. However, vegetable glycerin has a shorter shelf life than a traditional alcohol-based tincture. You may want to dispose of your vegetable glycerin-based tincture after 18 months.
When can I expect results with CBD?
You may notice the effect of your CBD product within 30 minutes to a few hours, depending upon serving size, method of delivery, as well as personal tolerance. Sometimes, however, the cannabinoids need a chance to build up in your body and help your endocannabinoid system become more receptive. We recommend consistently trying a product for at least 5-10 days before deciding if it works for you or not.
