Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBD?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a phytocannabinoid most commonly found in the Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plant. CBD does not cause intoxication or the euphoria (the “high”) that comes from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Instead, THC (and not CBD) is the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa). The FDA has approved a CBD-based drug, Epidoilex, for treatment of seizures associated with two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, and more recently seizures associated with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).

What can be the benefits of CBD?
While there is still much needed legitimate research in the field of biological effects of CBD and other cannabis plant compounds, anecdotal evidence supports that CBD can help certain individuals with insomnia, inflammation, anxiety, or other specific clinical diagnoses. In the United States, the cannabidiol drug Epidiolex was approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2018 for the treatment of two epilepsy disorders. (Sources: wikipedia, healthline)
Can I eat too much?
No, if you’re referring to the CBD. The FDA continues to research the effects of CBD on the body, and more specifically the Endocannabinoid system. More information can be found here
Is CBD legal?
The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp and hemp seeds from the statutory definition of marijuana and the DEA schedule of Controlled Substances, legalizing the hemp industry. Some progressive states, like Colorado, have approved compliant food manufacturers to use CBD as an ingredient. That being said, the FDA has not yet approved CBD to be used as an ingredient in food.

Where does your CBD come from?
We source all of our full-spectrum hemp distillate oil from certified industrial hemp manufacturers. The sourced CBD also comes with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) to prove it’s been appropriately tested for potency, bacteria, and other harmful contaminants. After our baking processes, we test all of our homemade truffle batches to ensure each serving has it’s appropriate dosage.
We are proud to use a full-spectrum CBD distillate oil in order to allow the consumer to benefit from the the ‘entourage effect’. Full-spectrum distillate oil avoids additional extraction processes in order to retain more of the complex cannabis compounds, allowing them to work in harmony with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
