What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. It is also the second most abundant compound in cannabis and has none of the psychoactive properties of marijuana.
How is CBD Made?
The CBD oil used in Inesscents products is obtained with a non-toxic CO2 extraction method. CO2 extraction is a preferred method of extraction keeping the quality of the raw material intact.
Is it Legal to Sell Hemp-Derived Products?
Products that are manufactured from agricultural hemp, which contains less than 0.3% THC in dry weight, are exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act, therefore are currently not unlawful for distribution. All Inesscents CBD products comply with legal requirements.
What are the Benefits from Using Hemp?
Hemp oils and extracts contain essential fatty acids which are extremely beneficial for the skin when used topically. Hemp is also a renewable resource, uses less water than other crops, easily regenerates and is a sound choice for the environment. Nearly every part of the plant is usable – for food, fiber, building materials and fuel, and thousands of other uses.
How Much CBD Should I Use On My Skin?
Topical CBD can be applied as needed. There is no specific recommendation for amount or frequency. We would suggest starting small and increasing the quantity as you see fit.
What is the Difference Between Hemp and Marijuana Plants?
Agricultural hemp is defined as a cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC, hemp is grown mainly to make textiles, food & oils, and does not get you “high”.
Where is our Hemp Grown?
Inesscents sources agricultural hemp imported from Europe, using EU certified hemp seeds. We also work with local farmers here in Southern Oregon, who grow hemp for our Fresh Flower Hemp Hydrosol.
Why Do You Source Hemp from Europe and Not in the United States?
Regulations regarding hemp growing in the United States have made it challenging to have a homegrown source. We hope to see this change in the near future so we can support our local economy. Through ongoing efforts with academic institutions and trade organizations, our suppliers continue to support all efforts in order to bring farming of agricultural hemp to the United States.
Why Would I Choose Hemp Over Medical Marijuana?
The low amounts of THC in agricultural hemp allow people to experience the benefits of CBD without the euphoria or psychotoxicity that is associated with medical cannabis.
Is Your CBD Tested?
Our CBD extract is tested for cannabinoid content, pesticides, contaminants, heavy metals and solvents. In addition to testing the raw material, we batch test our finished products to ensure our CBD content claims are accurate.
What is the Difference Between Hemp Seed Oil and CBD Oil?
Hemp seed oil is what you will find in your local grocery store and is generally used as a cooking oil or in a variety of nutrient foods. Hemp seed oil is obtained by pressing the seeds of the hemp plant. CBD Oil is extracted from the hemp plant matter itself (as opposed to the seeds) and contains the benefits from the whole plant.
Will I Pass a Drug Test?
All CBD products are required by law to contain no more than 0.3% THC. CBD products derived from industrial hemp generally fall well below the minimum requirement and contain only trace amounts of THC. We are currently not aware of any positive drug test results from using topical CBD. Not enough research has been done to guarantee test results.
