Frequently Asked Questions
– You have questions. We have the answers –
What is CBD oil & how does it work?
Cannabidiol or CBD is the active compound found in Hemp plants that work in conjunction with the Human Endocannabinoid System. CBD and other cannabinoids found within the hemp plant play a vital role in creating the balance among the many operating systems in our bodies.
Isolate, Full Spectrum, Whole Plant... What does it all mean?
It’s a matter of refinement. We use Full Plant Body Extracts (also called the Whole Plant) hemp oil in our tinctures because we believe the closest to the actual plant that we can maintain, the easier for the body to receive. Full Spectrum is a further refinement that strips the oil of any remaining chlorophyll, plant matter and terpenes leaving a full cannabinoid profile of approximately 90% purity. Isolate is as it says, an isolated compound of one cannabinoid. The most common isolate is just CBD but we believe the other such as CBG, CBN, and the many others are just as important and are meant to remain together.
What's the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Both Hemp and Marijuana are the same plant and in great thanks to the Farm Bill of 2018, the designation of hemp is based on the very low levels of THC found in the plant at harvest. As long as you produce a plant that is below .3% THC you are producing compliant hemp in the United States.
Hemp vs. Marijuana Derived Cannabinoids: Are they the same thing?
Absolutely. Once isolated, cannabinoids of any derivation are the same compounds so CBD from a cannabis plant is the same CBD from a hemp plant.
Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a CBD hemp extract?
No. Standard hemp seed oil is derived from the hemp seeds which have incredible nutritional benefits but do not benefit from the same concentration of cannabinoids as those extracted from the plant.
Where do you source your hemp and CBD from?
We work exclusively with a small family-owned farm and extraction facility in central Oregon that produces high quality organically grown hemp and extracts.
What type of extraction method do you employ?
We use both CO2 and Medical food-grade ethanol extraction depending on the finish we need for product formulation.
CO2 vs. Ethanol, Which is better?
In our opinion, extractors’ choice. As long as care, responsibility and proper operating standards and practices are employed, the final product will always be a clean and safe product to be used as intended.
Does TRU CBD Oil have any additives or artificial flavors and colors?
Absolutely not. We add only sunflower lecithin as an emulsifier, pure olive oil as a binder for the cannibinoids and MCT Oil as the carrier. We believe it is important to add as little as possible to allow for the plants natural healing abilities to shine.
Is CBD Oil legal in all 50 states and is it legal to ship CBD via the US Postal Service?
Yes it is as long as it is hemp derived (with the definition of hemp being a cannabis plant that contains less than .3% THC). With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD from hemp is no longer a controlled substance and is now an agricultural product. CBD can be mailed to all 50 states through any courier.
Will I get high from ingesting TRU CBD?
No. CBD contains no psychoactive elements and the THC levels are so small that you will only receive all of the benefits from the full cannabinoid profile as they work together within your endocannabinoid system.
