Where does it come from?
Holistic Homesteaders CBD products come from the medicinal hemp plant. Hemp and cannabis are similar, but are still very different. They both are from the same plant species–Cannabis Sativa L.–but differ in how they are grown and utilized. Cannabis is cultivated only for its flowers because of the high THC content. Hemp naturally contains less than 0.3% of THC by weight and has much higher percentages of CBD, making it an ideal source for our broad-spectrum CBD oil.
Holistic Homesteaders CBD is formulated with raw organically grown hemp oil sourced from Folium Biosciences, a Colorado based organic farm. Folium Biosciences is licensed with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture and grows in accordance with the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill Act.
Will it show on a drug screen?
No, our CBD will not show on a drug screening because it contains absolutely zero THC.
Are there any pharmaceutical drug interactions?
There are no known drug interactions, but if you take pharmaceutical medications please consult with your physician or pharmacist before using CBD products.
How much should I take?
Dosage requirements vary from person to person.
Therapeutic Dose: the amount necessary to condition the endocannabinoid system for best CBD efficacy. Usual dose is 25 mg or more of CBD per day. Generally, this takes one bottle
of tincture or one month to reach the need for maintenance dosing. (Read our blog What is the Endocannabinoid System?)
Maintenance Dose: the amount necessary to sustain homeostasis. Usual dose is 10-25 mg of CBD per day. Episodic/Flare-Ups: once maintenance has been achieved, extra dosing may be needed during flare-ups. Usually 10-25 mg in addition to maintenance dose. When you purchase our oral drops, you will receive a dosing guide to help you find your personal requirement.
