FAQ

On CBD

CBD is one of over 100 cannabinoids (chemical compounds) found in the cannabis plant that has myriad medicinal benefits for both humans and animals. At it’s core, CBD is an active anti-inflammatory that helps bring our body’s regulatory systems back into balance. It is non-addictive and non-psychoactive.

CBD is most effective as an anti-inflammatory, and also has application to help people with insomnia, anxiety, depression, addiction, pain, fibromyalgia, and more.

CBD stimulates receptors in our body’s endocannabinoid system, which controls many of our regulatory systems. By stimulating these receptors, CBD inhibits certain enzymes from blocking our body’s naturally occurring cannabinoids, thus allowing our body to reset to its natural state of balance.

Tinctures: Mixed with a carrier oil, CBD can be taken under the tongue and then swallowed after 60-90 seconds. This is one of the most effective ways to take CBD as it is fast acting and has a high rate of bio-availability.

Topicals: CBD can be mixed into a lotion and applied topically onto your skin in affected areas. This is a popular usage for people with arthritis, muscle and joint pains, and skin inflammation such as eczema, psoriasis, and scars.

Edibles: CBD can be mixed into food or drink. The benefit of processing CBD through your digestive system is that its effects tend to last a long time. However, effects are slow to onset and much of the available CBD is lost during digestion, meaning you have to take more for the same effect compared to sublingual ingestion.

Smoking: CBD in its raw flower form can be smoked. Smoking CBD is fast, potent, but last only a short while

The motto is “Start Low & Go Slow.”

Low dosages range from 5-25mg per serving, 1-3 times per day.
Most of our customers stay in this range.
Depending on your symptoms, some people may need to increase this dosage.
No matter what, start in the Low range for at least one week so that you can prime your body to get used to the CBD. After one week you may increase your dosage if desired effects are not reached.

CBD is not for everyone. Currently, there is only 1 approved CBD prescription drug on the market. We encourage people to use CBD under the guidance of a medical practitioner.

CBD derived from industrial hemp is federally legal as per the Farm Bill of 2018. Industrial hemp is grown by licensed farmers and has less than 0.3% THC when harvested.

On Farming

We call our CBD “Beyond Organic” because our farmers implement regenerative farming techniques on a small-scale level. The concept of “Beyond Organic” farming is to grow soil, not plants, with the idea that the healthier your soil is, the healthier and more resilient your plants will be, without having to pump them with pesticides and fertilizers.

Beyond Organic farming practices include cover cropping, no-till, use of chicken tractors, planting and harvesting by hand, and growing underneath the sun.
