Frequently Asked Questions
CBD stands for cannabidiol, which is one of the most commonly known compounds in the hemp plant.
No, CBD will not get you high. CBD is a non-intoxicating ingredient.
Hemp and marijuana come from the same family of plants, Cannabis Sativa L. Hemp-derived and marijuana-derived CBD contain different levels of THC. Hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC content, and marijuana plants contain higher levels of THC. Hemp-derived CBD was removed from the US Controlled Substance Act, removing hemp-derived from the definition “marijuana”.
BETR CBD is using hemp-derived extract.
We work with a 3rd party lab to test every lot for accuracy. Check out our COA’s on our website to confirm.
No. Our products do not have THC, even at trace amounts. Because we do not have THC in our products, they will not get you “high”, which is an effect of THC. Check out our COA’s for confirmation and to learn how to read our COA’s.
Full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate refer to types of hemp extracts, also called concentrates. The terms are intended to indicate the amount of plant-produced chemicals present in addition to the primary cannabinoids (THC and/or CBD); they are a shorthand way of conveying the diversity of bioactives in a given extract. Because there is no consensus or regulation within the industry, we suggest researching what you are consuming.
BETR CBD uses broad spectrum and is defined below based on hemp extract we are using from SoRSE Technology. BETR CBD and SoRSE Technology have adopted the NSF Hemp Extract Definitions. You can read more here.
Full Spectrum CBD offers a full array of cannabinoids and terpenes. It will contain trace amounts of THC, but not enough to feel any intoxicating effects. A hemp-derived Full Spectrum CBD product is required to have less than 0.3% THC content.
Broad Spectrum is the middle ground between Full Spectrum and Isolate CBD. It begins as a Full Spectrum oil, then goes through a refinement process that removes THC. Broad Spectrum contains an array of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
Isolate refers to the extraction process that isolates CBD from the rest of the plant’s compounds like the waxes, terpenes or other cannabinoids. This creates a product that tests as high as 99% pure CBD.
We are using broad spectrum CBD. The Broad Spectrum we source contains an array of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
If you need to pass a drug test, we suggest that you consult with medical professionals.
Terpenes are essential oils found in cannabis that give distinct smell and flavors.
When the terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids work together, they are more effective than if they were separate. This is what is known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect is a non-intoxicating effect. To put it in simple terms, the whole of the cannabis plant is greater than the sum of its parts. The entourage effect makes sense in terms of nature. After all, CBD is not isolated by itself in the cannabis plant.
Hemp Extract is labeled on our ingredient statement because the extract used in our formulation contains several compounds, not just CBD, so we label our ingredient statement to include all of these compounds. These additional compounds include terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids. We claim 20 MG CBD to single out this compound specifically, and provide clear quantities of the CBD.
