Frequently Asked Questions
What is hemp and how is it different from cannabis?
Hemp is of the same genus as Cannabis, but contains less than 0.3% THC. Humans have grown hemp for thousands of years and is one of the strongest, most durable, natural soft fibers on this planet. Because of this, hemp has a wide variety of uses such as for paper, fuel, oils, medicine, clothing, housing, plastic, rope, and even food – you may have noticed hemp milk or hemp seeds available in your local health food store. To legally grow industrial hemp, it must test below 0.3% THC in dry weight
What is Cannabidiol (CBD)?
Cannabidiol a natural compound found in both hemp and marijuana. Like THC, CBD is a cannabinoid. But unlike THC, CBD non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t get you high. CBD is responsible for many of the positive effects of hemp oil. To learn more, we recommend checking out Project CBD (www.projectCBD.org), a great nonprofit organization dedicated to publicizing research into the medical uses of cannabidiol.
What does "Full Spectrum Hemp Phytocannabinoids" mean?
Many people are familiar with cannabidiol (CBD), which is found in highly concentrated amounts in our products, but there are actually dozens of cannabinoids found in hemp, which have shown many benefits in studies. We carry an array of options but choose to make many of our products with full-spectrum hemp oil, which includes all of the cannabinoids found in the plant, so you don’t miss out on any of the benefits.
How do I use your spices?
You don’t have to heat the CBD for it to be active, but that does not mean you should not cook with it. Our spices are best used when cooked with healthy fats (olive oil, avocado, coconut, ghee). Baking and sautéing/pan frying are our favorite ways to cook with Cured CBD infused spices. Things to consider are: cooking over an open flame that can vaporize the CBD and being on a grill where it can fall off when cooking. Crock pots are a great way to use Cured for example.
Are your products legal?
In the U.S., CBD derived from industrial hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship nationwide. All of our American industrial hemp CBD plants are grown and distributed in full compliance with the State of Colorado, as well as in full federal compliance with §7606 of the 2014 US Farm Bill.
Does CBD get me 'high'?
No. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not get you ‘high’. Users may feel relaxed but not high.
Will your products show up on a drug test?
Drug tests usually test for tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. Hemp is classified as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC. This means there may be THC in hemp products. Similar to the chance of failing a drug test by consuming poppy seeds, customers are expected to fully understand what is contained in our products and make their own conscious decision to consume our products.
