FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)

What is the difference between Full-Spectrum and Broad-Spectrum? 

Full Spectrum contains THC and Broad Spectrum has no THC

What does it mean when I see the word "Isolate" in the ingredients? 

Isolate is CBD ONLY that has been refined down to a powder. It is not whole plant and is therefore missing all the other cannabinoids, Amino & Terpenes.

Is all of the Hemp Organic? 

Not necessarily. Some farms use pesticides that are harmful and not organic practices. GreenTree CBD (Industrial Hemp) is organic and uses Biological Control Agents. Biological control agents, also known as beneficial insects, are predatory mites and insects in various stages of development. By releasing beneficial insects into a garden space, you introduce natural predators to the common pests that damage your crop. Beneficial insects can be used as a preventative measure or for treating outbreaks, saving growers from having to resort to harmful or illegal pesticides.

CBD (Hemp) can not be deemed USDA Organic by any organization.  In order to be considered an organic product, CBD would need to fall under the jurisdiction of the FDA. Since CBD (Hemp) Products are not regulated by the FDA, CBD products cannot be certified as organic. Any company that claims their CBD oil is a USDA Certified Organic product is misrepresenting the facts.

Are there recommended dosage rates that have been established? 

Recommended dosage is typically defined through clinical research trials. There are currently 199 studies being conducted at this time. 284 studies in the US have been completed. Data is currently being gathered.

Antidotal research, suggest to start with a small dosage of CBD and increase slowly until you reach your desired effect. Your ideal dosage of CBD depends on a lot of factors, like your body weight, body chemistry, the condition you’re treating, and the concentration of CBD in the product you’re using.

How long does a typical bottle/package last a consumer? 

This will depend on the usage. However, 30 - 45 days is the average.

On 20th December 2018 the Farm Bill declared that all “hemp” extracts (CBD) are legal agricultural products provided that they contain <0.3% THC. However, each state can govern the cultivation, processing and selling of CBD (Hemp).

Industry Cautiousness

Many companies are displaying high milligrams on there CBD (Hemp) labels. However, they are counting all milligrams of the ingredients vs milligrams of only CBD.  GreenTree only displays milligrams of CBD (Hemp) on our labels. Read the labels and make sure the milligrams presented are active ingredient of CBD (Hemp). Also, review if it is whole plant extract or Isolate.

To price compare CBD (Hemp) company’s products, the price per milligram of CBD should be considered during the review. Example: 25mg CBD (Hemp) for $19.99 is 80 cents per mg of CBD. GreenTree’s Balm Remedy is 500 mg for $49.95 which is 10 cents per mg of whole plant CBD (Hemp) extract.
