What is CBD and is it legal?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant. Like THC, which is also a naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant, CBD does not have the psychoactive effects associated with THC.
CBD was classified as a controlled substance and was illegal in the United States until the passage of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the “2018 Farm Bill”) which was signed and enacted into law in December 2018. The Farm Bill removed industrial hemp from the federal controlled substances list, sparking interest from producers looking to utilize more of the hemp plant.
Under the Farm Bill, hemp is defined as any part of the Cannabis sativa L. plant containing less than 0.3% THC. This includes hemp plants that produce the concentrated liquid extract known as CBD oil. The important part of the legality of CBD involves the explicit percentage of THC in the product (again, less than 0.3% by weight).

Where does your CBD come from?
We work with one of the largest vertically integrated growers in Colorado. They grow, harvest, extract and bottle all of our products.
How is your CBD extracted?
Our grower uses a CO2 extraction process. Although it is more expensive, CO2 extraction is better than ethanol/alcohol extraction because it doesn’t use any harmful solvents in the extraction process, resulting in a cleaner CBD product.
How much CBD should I take?
It really depends on what you are using it for, and it is different for everyone. Most people start with between 10mg and 25mg per day and adjust from there. Some people only take 10mg in the morning, others like to take 10mg in morning and 10mg before bed. Others will take it throughout the day as needed. It is difficult to overdose, as you would need to drink a few bottles at once. We recommend that you start with the smallest dose possible.
What is the best way to take CBD?
There are a few different ways to take CBD. The most popular method is using the CBD oil sublingually. If you place it under your tongue and hold it there for a few minutes, it absorbs into the bloodstream and you will feel its effects in a few minutes.
CBD softgels are a convenient and precise method to get exactly the dose you desire. The CBD in the softgel is nano-emulsified so it has a smaller molecule. This means that you can absorb more of the CBD than the normal oils. Just remember that when you use a softgel it can take 45 minutes to start working.
