Learn more about how CBD can help make your day-to-day life more manageable and enjoyable.
How does CBD work?
CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a vital role in our body, affecting mood, pain, and sleep. By supplementing our bodies with CBD, we can help to positively affect those systems and restore our bodies to balance.
The benefits of Broad Spectrum:
There’s a lot more to it than just CBD. The terpenes and other minor cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and CBC found in hemp all contribute to affecting our mood, pain, and sleep. When all of these helpful compounds are preserved together, it’s known as Broad Spectrum.
However, oftentimes those terpenes and cannabinoids are lost due to commercial extraction techniques and many products on the market are lacking.
Preserving the whole-plant experience:
At Vital Earth Farms, we extract the terpenes from our CBD oil after the hemp is harvested and reintroduce them into our products, ensuring that none are lost.
Everything we make is Broad Spectrum, so you can be confident that you’re receiving the full array of benefits from our hemp.
The effects of Broad Spectrum CBD are non-intoxicating, so you won’t get high in the same way that THC affects the body. However, there are many ways in which CBD can still affect you.
As the Endocannabinoid System helps to regulate our immune system, mood, and nervous system, there have been a wide array of therapeutic benefits attributed to CBD. These range from helping to manage pain to aiding sleep and more.
We encourage everyone to do their own research into the amazing capabilities that CBD has to offer.
What’s the difference between tinctures and elixirs?
Tinctures are typically alcohol-based, whereas our elixirs are made using 100% organic MCT oil.
What is the Entourage Effect
Since CBD is typically accompanied by other naturally occurring, non-intoxicating constituents in the plant, “whole-plant” (or broad spectrum) Cannabinoid extracts are more powerful than isolated Cannabinoid extracts. Terpenes, plant waxes, vitamins, minerals, and other phytocannabinoids are examples of these other compounds. When all of these components are combined, the maximum effect is achieved, known as the Entourage Effect.
How much CBD should I take?
The simple answer is that depending on how your body metabolizes, absorbs, and reacts to CBD, each individual will need a different amount. As a general rule, it's best to start small and pay attention to your reaction before completely integrating CBD into your daily routine. Within a few weeks, you should be able to determine the amount that feels right for you to receive the benefits and support you need.
Where are your products made and where do you source your hemp?
On our farm in Oregon City, OR! We grow all of our own hemp and extract it on-site. We also manufacture all of our products on our farm as well. Controlling the entire cycle ensures that we can regulate exactly what goes into everything we make.
What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp and marijuana are both members of the Cannabis Sativa L. plant family, and although they have some similarities, they also have some significant differences. The chemical composition of each plant is the distinguishing feature between hemp and marijuana. CBD, a non-intoxicating cannabis compound, is produced by both species. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), on the other hand, is the substance that causes the high and is typically found in higher levels in marijuana.
Do your products contain THC?
No, our products either contain trace or no detectable amounts of THC per industry testing standards. All of our CBD is derived from hemp, which legally cannot contain more than 0.3% THC. Each batch of our products is tested to ensure we meet the industry regulations as well.
Are there side effects of consuming CBD?
Each individual will have a different and unique experience with CBD, as with any other supplement or new wellness procedure. It's always a good idea to check with your doctor before starting a new supplement. Our products are not for use by women who are or may become pregnant or breastfeeding, who have a medical condition, who are taking drugs, or who are under the age of 18.
