FAQ’s

What is CBD?

CBD–short for cannabidiol–is one of over 100 active chemical compounds (cannabinoids) in the cannabis/hemp plant. It’s usually the second-most abundant cannabinoid in concentration, behind THC.

Turns out, hemp is cannabis! To distinguish between what is classified as “hemp” and what is classified as a “marijuana” plant, a cannabis-family plant is considered “hemp” by the United States Federal Government if the plant contains less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is naturally occurring in the hemp plant, meaning it doesn’t cause the “high” typically associated with marijuana use. THC, (tetrahydrocannabinol), another well-known cannabinoid, is psychoactive and causes a “high” effect when used.

No, CBD will not get you high. It is non-intoxicating. THC is the molecule that binds to receptors in our brain and is the one responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana.

Yes, as of 2018, with the passing of the United States Farm Bill, CBD products with a compliant level of THC (containing less than 0.3% THC) are legal in the state of Hawaii. 

Most CBD oils have a lifespan of at least two years before they go bad. Over this period the cannabinoids in them will start to break down and therefore be less effective. 

To make your CBD last longer, make sure you store it right. Avoid places that are too hot or cold and where the sun shines directly on it. Your storage choices can help stop the cannabinoids from breaking down too soon.

The short answer is yes, you can travel with CBD if you are flying within or between states or countries where it’s legal. CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC. And if it’s a liquid and in your carry-on, it must be three ounces or less. Consult the laws of the places you are traveling through as well as your final destination.

Public health and safety is our primary concern when it comes to our product. We grow organically (USDA certified through Oregon Tilth), and we test with a third-party laboratory.

Yes, our CBD is a 100% naturally occurring chemical compound that comes directly from USDA-certified organically grown hemp plants. It is extracted from the plant using certified organic cane ethanol. The quality of our processing and cultivation practices is part of the secret to the incredible nature and quality of our CBD and CBG distillate. 

A high-quality, reputable CBD product with minimal THC will NOT show up on a drug test. However, low-quality or mislabeled CBD products may contain more traces of THC than they claim, in which case it is possible for a screening to pick up on the drug.

Look for island-sourced, certified organically grown, lab-tested CBD from a transparent and reputable company. Always ask for lab reports and organic certification!
