Below is a list of the most common questions regarding HEMP EXTRACT. We hope this helps educate you with the latest HEMP EXTRACT information so you’re able to find the best HEMP EXTRACT product for you!

What is HEMP EXTRACT?

Cannabidiol, or HEMP EXTRACT, is one of 113 known cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. HEMP EXTRACT has many beneficial properties and is used to promote wellness.

Why do people use HEMP EXTRACT?

While no health claims can be made, the primary reasons cited by customers using HEMP EXTRACT are for pain relief, anxiety relief, and to aid in promoting sleep. HEMP EXTRACT also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent and is available in topical, edible, and tincture (drops) form.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. The human body (and the bodies of all vertebrates) produce endocannabinoids, while cannabinoids found in plants are called phytocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote homeostasis.

How does HEMP EXTRACT work?

The human body has two receptors for cannabinoids the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Although both are found all over the body, CB1 receptors are present in the brain and deal with pain, movement, cognitive function, and mood. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system and affect pain and inflammation, among other things. THC attaches to the CB1 receptors, whereas HEMP EXTRACT interacts with the CB2 receptors. Unlike THC which attaches to receptors, HEMP EXTRACT does not attach to the CB2 receptor. Rather, researchers believe that HEMP EXTRACT influences the body’s use of endocannabinoids (promoting homeostasis).

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.

What is a tincture?

Commonly referred to as “HEMP EXTRACT Oil”, a HEMP EXTRACT tincture is HEMP EXTRACT in liquid form. HEMP EXTRACT extracts (isolate or distillate) are infused into medium-chain triglycerides (MCT oil) from coconuts, which serves as a carrier oil. Tinctures are ingested orally. Fill the syringe on your dropper to 1ml and dispense under your tongue. Hold under your tongue for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.

How many milligrams of HEMP EXTRACT should I take per serving?

Your effective dose will depend on a number of factors, including the severity of your condition, the delivery/consumption method, and the size of the person. Suggested dosing ranges from 5mg to 50mg per serving.

Will HEMP EXTRACT work for me?

HEMP EXTRACT has not been approved by the FDA, so HEMP EXTRACT companies cannot make health claims. However, the top reasons our customers cite for using HEMP EXTRACT include pain, inflammation, anxiety, and problems sleeping.

Do your products contain THC?

Our Full-Spectrum HEMP EXTRACT products contain <0.3% THC, the Federally legal limit. Results are available on our Lab Results page.

What does full-spectrum mean?

Full-spectrum products are formulated with a HEMP EXTRACT extract that has the same cannabinoid profile as the hemp biomass from which it came. We use only hemp biomass that is high in HEMP EXTRACT, rich in minor cannabinoids, and below the legal threshold of 0.3% THC. Our Full-Spectrum Tinctures are under 0.3% THC and legal in all 50 states.

What are minor cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are compounds that act on the body’s endocannabinoid system that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Each cannabinoid interacts with the endocannabinoid differently and has different benefits. The most notable cannabinoids are HEMP EXTRACT and THC, but there are at least 113 known cannabinoids. The other 111+ cannabinoids are commonly referred to as “minor cannabinoids”.

What are the most common minor cannabinoids?

Minor cannabinoids are another type of cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis plants. These cannabinoids are “minor” because of their lower plant material concentrations, but their effects certainly aren’t minor. Currently, the most common minor cannabinoids are CBG, CBC, THCV, and CBN.

What is the entourage effect?

The presence of other cannabinoids and terpenes affect the way your body responds to cannabinoids in a synergistic manner in which the combined effect of HEMP EXTRACT and other cannabinoids and/or terpenes is greater than the sum of its parts. If you would like to take advantage of the entourage effect, we recommend a Full Spectrum Tincture.

How much HEMP EXTRACT is in your products?

Botanicraft believes in providing potent HEMP EXTRACT products. However, the amount of HEMP EXTRACT varies from product to product. Please refer to the front of each product’s label, where the amount of HEMP EXTRACT is prominently displayed. To view product labels, visit our Online store.

Can I see your lab reports?

Yes, we publish them on our Lab Results page. You can also view the lab results by scanning the QR code on all Botanicraft products, or by scrolling through the product images on the online store.

Are these products safe?

There are no incidences of HEMP EXTRACT consumption causing illness. HEMP EXTRACT is completely non-toxic, meaning you cannot overdose. Additionally, all Botanicraft products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee that they are free from contaminants.

Are there any side effects?

There are no known side effects. However, extremely large servings of HEMP EXTRACT may cause drowsiness.

Does HEMP EXTRACT interact with other medications?

More research needs to be done. If you are taking prescription medications, speak to a qualified health professional.

Which product is right for me?

The ideal method for taking HEMP EXTRACT depends on the reason it is being used. For most conditions, we recommend a tincture due to its high bioavailability, precise dosing, and convenience. Many users also prefer topicals for certain conditions such as joint and muscle pain.

How long will it take to notice the benefits?

It depends on the method and dose. For products with high bioavailability like tinctures users often report immediate results. However, most of the effects of HEMP EXTRACT are subtle and take up to a half hour or more to be detectable. Individual results may vary.

How often can I take HEMP EXTRACT?

It depends on the reason HEMP EXTRACT is used, but you can use HEMP EXTRACT throughout the day, or at particular times.

Can I take HEMP EXTRACT on an empty stomach?

Yes, there are usually no issues when taken on an empty stomach.

What kind of testing is performed on your product?

We send samples to a third-party lab for all hemp used in processing, all extracts we produce, and each batch of HEMP EXTRACT products we formulate to ensure purity, accurate cannabinoid concentrations, and consistency.

Do you test for potency, pesticide, heavy metals, and yeast/mold/microbial contamination?

Yes, we send samples to a third-party lab for all hemp used in processing, all extracts we produce, and each batch of HEMP EXTRACT products we formulate to ensure purity, accurate cannabinoid concentrations, and consistency. This includes testing for THC levels and potential contaminants.

Will HEMP EXTRACT get me high?

Unlike THC, HEMP EXTRACT is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.

Can your products cure/treat my condition?

HEMP EXTRACT has not been approved by the FDA in the treatment of any condition aside from particular seizure disorders. Consult a physician to determine if you could benefit from using HEMP EXTRACT.

Are hemp and marijuana the same thing?

Hemp is legally defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% of the cannabinoid THC. THC causes a high and is illegal federally. Hemp contains trace amounts of THC, is unlikely to cause a high, and is legal to possess in all 50 US states.

What extraction method do you use?

Like most HEMP EXTRACT processors, we use hydrocarbon as our solvent of choice. Although it is possible to use CO2 as a solvent to produce the highest purity extracts, hydrocarbon has emerged as a more energy-efficient and scalable alternative. It is important to note that all hydrocarbon is removed from the extracts through a process of evaporation and distillation. Check out our HEMP EXTRACT School for education on the process.

Where do you get your hemp?

We currently source our hemp from a USDA certified organic farm in Tennessee.

Are your products Kosher?

All of our products are kosher except for our gummies, which are made with gelatin, and our HEMP EXTRACT Pet Tincture, which contains Bone Broth Collagen.

What else can hemp be used for?

Hemp has a variety of uses. According to a 2018 report by Congressional Research Services, there are an estimated 25,000 products derived from hemp in the following categories: agriculture, textiles, recycling, automotive, furniture, food and beverages, paper, construction materials, and personal care.

Can I give my pet HEMP EXTRACT?

Yes, high-quality HEMP EXTRACT is safe for pets.

How is your product different from others?

We offer superior quality by using simple processing methods to retain all of the beneficial compounds that the hemp plant naturally provides. Check out our HEMP EXTRACT School for education on the process.

Do your products contain gluten?

No.

Does HEMP EXTRACT have a shelf life?

HEMP EXTRACT does not have an expiration date, however, some products have ingredients that do. Please refer to the expiration date on the packaging. Additionally, HEMP EXTRACT can degrade with exposure to direct sunlight, air, and heat. Products should be stored in airtight containers in a cool, dark place.

Do I need to keep my HEMP EXTRACT products refrigerated?

Our products do not need to be refrigerated, but a refrigerator is not a bad place to keep your store your product so long as it is out of the reach of children. HEMP EXTRACT products should be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Exposure to air, direct sunlight, and heat can degrade HEMP EXTRACT.

What is the difference between HEMP EXTRACT and hemp?

Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is under 0.3% THC. It is grown for food, fiber, or HEMP EXTRACT extracted from its flowers. In other words, HEMP EXTRACT is a derivative of the hemp plant.

Will HEMP EXTRACT show up on a drug test?

If you are using a full spectrum HEMP EXTRACT there is a greater than zero chance that the trace and legal amount of THC in the product could cause you to test positive for THC. These products are not expected to cause a positive result for THC. However, we cannot and do not represent or warrant the results that any individual may experience and advises customers to consider the risks of incorrect detection prior to use of this product. If you would like to see our third-party lab results, visit our Lab Results page. You can also scan the QR on the label to view lab results and HEMP EXTRACT information.

What is hemp seed oil?

Hemp seed oil does not contain HEMP EXTRACT or other cannabinoids. While HEMP EXTRACT is extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Look for Cannabidiol (HEMP EXTRACT) on the Supplement Facts of the label to determine whether or not the product contains HEMP EXTRACT.

Is HEMP EXTRACT good for me if I’m perfectly healthy?

Due to its interaction with the endocannabinoid system to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, HEMP EXTRACT is very popular among people with no health concerns seeking to optimize health.

Do you have an FDA disclosure?

FDA Disclosure: These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease. Always check with your physician before starting a new dietary supplement program. Consult a physician before using cannabidiol (HEMP EXTRACT) in any form during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. *Cannabidiol (HEMP EXTRACT) is a natural constituent of hemp oil.

Should I look for HEMP EXTRACT on Amazon?

Purchasing HEMP EXTRACT products on Amazon is a precarious undertaking because Amazon doesn’t allow the sale of HEMP EXTRACT products, which creates a murky group of sellers that are having to constantly re-upload their products after Amazon pulls them down. There are ways to stay under the radar longer by advertising products as “hemp extracts” instead of specifying the specific HEMP EXTRACT extract used in product formulation. This lack is transparency leads to many products that do not even contain HEMP EXTRACT, or have far lower than reported milligram content. Some companies even sell hemp seed oil and market it in a way that leads customers to believe it is HEMP EXTRACT. Most of it comes from overseas, and you find very few national US brands on Amazon.

What is HEMP EXTRACTa?

Cannabidiol acid, or HEMP EXTRACTa for short, is a natural compound that the cannabis plant produces. It’s primarily found in plant material (hemp biomass or flower), or in extracts that are processed without the application of heat (crude HEMP EXTRACT oil).
