For the People CBD FAQ

How is your CBD extracted?

  • Our CBD is extracted using supercritical CO2 extraction and multistage lab tested every step of the way.

What’s the difference between eating CBD and vaping CBD?

  • Eating CBD takes a while to kick in, but lasts a very long time.
  • Vaping CBD is extremely fast acting but fades faster than eating.
  • Our best recommendation is to try one vape and one edible product.
  • Vape and eat at the same time for a super dose of CBD with both fast and long lasting effects. Now you have CBD active in the body immediately with more on the way.

What is UNREFINED full spectrum DARK CBD?

Short answer: Unrivaled potency. This is BEYOND full-spectrum.

Long answer: Most other CBD products on the market – even full-spectrum – involve some amount of refinement. The problem with this is that the more you refine any hemp product, the more nutrients are lost, so the most effective CBD products you can get are the ones that can call themselves unrefined. Only our products can say that.
As we say around here, refined CBD is like taking a vitamin C tablet instead of eating an orange. Sure, you may technically have more of the so-called active ingredient, but the human body is far more complex than that; all the other botanical compounds in the plant, many of which are potent antioxidants and anti-inflammatories in their own right, interact to maximize their effectiveness. We keep all that good stuff in there.


Short answer: Unrefined full spectrum is far more efficient and effective.

Long answer: The source of your CBD matters a great deal. If you have a CBD gummy containing 25 mg of CBD isolate (crystals), it’s not going to be as effective as a lower dose of unrefined full spectrum CBD (like ours), let alone a comparable dose.
The darker the vegetable the more nutrient dense it is, and the unrefined dark CBD we use in our capsules is so dark it’s literally black. This is the TRUE full spectrum state, the most potent and nutrient dense form of CBD. Most companies will take this dark extract and refine it into a light golden form or even a crystal form to create gummy candies. While this does bring up the milligrams of CBD, it also strips the plant of everything that nature intended you to eat with it – we’re talking CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC, terpenoids, plant sterols, chlorophyll, vitamin E, omega 3,6,9 fatty acids, and a host of other phytonutrients that are missing in that crystal CBD gummy.
It’s not just about the milligrams – it’s about how effective those milligrams are – and what you’ll find is that dark CBD works tremendously better than anything else even if it has less CBD in it.

Our capsules contain 25 mg of CBD per capsule, along with all those other dark nutrients inside to get the synergistic effect of an unrefined full spectrum product. You’ll be presently surprised at the difference of feel between dark CBD and light CBD.

This is from hemp, right? Will it make me high?

Short answer: No, it will NOT make you high.

Long answer: All CBD products on the market are required by law to contain <0.3% THC. That’s less than three-tenths of a percent. Our products fall well below that threshold. CBD-rich industrial hemp and THC-rich marijuana are different varieties of the same plant species (Cannabis sativa) that have been intentionally bred for separate purposes. Think of it like a Siberian husky versus a German shepherd. They’re both dogs, technically members of the same species (Canis familiaris), but selective breeding has produced vastly different characteristics between the two.

I can vape this?

We don’t put any additives like PG or VG into our tinctures, and MCT’s are perfectly safe to vaporize and inhale (they’re technically lipids and come from oil, but chemically they behave more like carbohydrates in the body and don’t clog the lungs up like PG/VG). #nolipidpneumonia CBD-wise it’s more efficient to use our high-potency wax cartridges, but if you like using our tinctures as vape oil we won’t stop you. Just use a low voltage vape pen; our tinctures are pretty thick and can burn at high voltage.
