Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a compound found in hemp plants. It’s one of many powerful cannabinoids found in hemp and is known for supporting the body and mind in various ways.
Hemp Extract itself should not trigger a positive drug test. However, because THC can be found in minute quantities in full-spectrum tinctures, gummies, or capsules, there is a chance that a person could test positive in a drug screening after taking certain full-profile products.
A topical cream is a localized method of administration designed to target the affected area of the body by penetrating the top layers of the skin. Higher Remedies products are not transdermal, meaning they do not enter the bloodstream, and are unlikely to interact negatively with other medications.
Tinctures taken orally are absorbed through the mucus membranes and enter the bloodstream. Moreover, they have an increased time to delivery, since it takes time to work through the body. It's advisable to speak to your doctor if you are worried about how they can interact with other medications you may be taking.
Absolutely not. Hemp Extract is non-intoxicating. It could be considered psychoactive like other non-intoxicating substances, such as caffeine and chocolate because it is considered a mood enhancer. Our products will not get you high. By law, no product can contain more than 0.3% THC, a negligible trace amount.
The products do not need to be refrigerated. If you prefer to take the tincture when it's chilled you can store it in the refrigerator without impacting the efficacy of the product.
We also suggest storing it anywhere that the product isn't exposed to constant light and or excessive heat.
Among the many benefits that our users experience, some of the main ones are:
While some notice they slept a little better or recovered from a workout quickly in the first week, others will tell you it can take anywhere from 4-6 weeks to notice results (and even sometimes longer). Like most things in life, consistency is paramount when you’re looking for the long-term benefits of Hemp Extract.
Hemp Extract is generally safe, non-toxic, and with no known lethal dose. Taking too much hemp extract will not result in any major adverse effects. Any grown adult human over 150 pounds can take more than 100mg per day safely. Slight effects an adult might experience are feeling drowsy, having a stomach ache, or mild diarrhea symptoms.

Yes, thanks to the Hemp Bill,. The TSA Website says “Marijuana and certain cannabis infused products, including some hemp extract oil, remain illegal under federal law except for products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis or that are approved by FDA.” Meaning, if your products conform to the limit of THC outlined by the Hemp Bill, it’s perfectly fine to bring them with you on a plane.
Cannabinoids are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. They are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. These compounds are key players in normal immune and central nervous system functioning.
A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, using cannabinoids to support cells and healthy immune system function, despite fluctuations in our external environment.
Hemp produces more than 80 different phytocannabinoids naturally. Of the 80+ non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. Others include Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC) & more.
Hemp Oil is the essential oil produced from the leaves, buds, and stem of the hemp plant. Hemp oil can be extracted by both mechanical and chemical means. In the extraction process, the oil retains a range of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found naturally in hemp. Oil that comes from only the seeds of hemp— hemp seed oil — does not include all of the same plant compounds and is primarily composed of dietary fats.
Yes. The legal status of hemp and hemp-derived products, including those containing CBD, may vary from state to state. However, the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and removed it from the federal Controlled Substances Act, as well as all hemp extracts and cannabinoids (including CBD), with the stipulation that they must not contain more than 0.3% THC.
