Warfighter Hemp’s Most Commonly Asked CBD Questions

Warfighter Hemp’s Most Commonly Asked CBD Questions

Here are a few of our most commonly asked CBD questions about Warfighter Hemp, hemp questions, and the CBD process. Plus, a few questions to ask on CBD we think you should be asking any CBD company. 

General CBD Questions and Hemp Questions 

What is Hemp Oil? (What is Hemp Tincture?) 

Hemp oil is derived from cannabis plants – it is the essential oil produced from the leaves, buds and stems. Once extracted (either mechanical or chemical means), it retains a range of phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found naturally in hemp oil. 

Warfighter Hemp’s extract comes from USDA Certified Organic hemp and is blended with an organic hemp seed oil carrier loaded with 3-6-9 complex omegas. The combo of the hemp seed oil and hemp extract is optimal for absorption into the body. 

What is CBD? What is Phytocannabinoid?

Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are chemical compounds found in hemp plants. There are over 80 different phytocannabinoids.

Research shows significant potential for phytocannabinoids to support health & wellness.* Hemp contains other beneficial phytocannabinoids.

What Are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. There are more than 85 identified cannabinoids including the commonly known Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).

Warfighter Hemp Oil is sourced from Federally legal Industrial Hemp which is grown in compliance with the 2018 Congressional Farm Bill

Will CBD get me “high?”

No, CBD will not get you “high.” Though CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, it is completely nonintoxicating and does not cause any of the mind-altering effects typically associated with THC.

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

THC is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most abundant nonintoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis.

What is Full Spectrum CBD vs Broad Spectrum?

Warfighter Hemp’s Full Spectrum Hemp Oil includes naturally occurring cannabinoids such as CBD, and less than 0.3% trace of THC. Additionally, Warfighter Hemp’s Full Spectrum CBD Oil includes beneficial hemp compounds, such as terpenes and flavonoids to support your well-being. 

The synergistic interactions of the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids strengthen the therapeutic benefits associated with each compound to amplify their potency and overall impact on your health. This gives stock to the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” This is known as the “entourage effect.” All the cannabinoids play a critical role in producing this entourage effect. 

While Warfighter Hemp’s Broad Spectrum Oil includes numerous cannabinoids, including CBD, from the original hemp plant, one phytocannabinoid not found in here is THC. 

The original hemp plant undergoes an extraction method to keep the cannabinoids intact, while eliminating impurities like chlorophyll, lipids and waxes. Through additional extraction processes, the THC is further stripped from the cannabinoids to produce a Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil that is THC-free. 

However, please see the question “Can Warfighter Hemp’s ZERO Line Cause Me to Fail a Drug Test?”

CBD Benefits* 

How Does CBD Work?

The body’s endocannabinoid system helps the body’s functions perform with greater efficacy. The cannabinoids in hemp extract communicate with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help further restore balance and physiological homeostasis. 

Our endocannabinoid system produces cannabinoids naturally, which maintain and regulate the body’s equanimity. When CBD Tincture is ingested, the cannabinoids trigger the body’s endocannabinoid system by attaching to specialized receptors that are found throughout the body and regulate functions such as memory, movement, appetite and more. 

This adhesion activates an event in the cell and surrounding cells to aid in balancing sleep, mood, pain and inflammation for optimal function. Just as a particular key is designed to open a single lock, a given receptor may accept only certain classes of compounds and be unaffected by other compounds Therefore, every time you consume Warfighter Hemp’s Full Spectrum CBD Oil or Broad Spectrum CBD Oil—the endocannabinoid system is stimulated. 

Are Warfighter Hemp’s CBD Full Spectrum Tinctures and Broad Spectrum Tinctures Organic? 

All of Warfighter Hemp’s extract comes from USDA Certified Organic hemp and is blended with an organic hemp seed oil carrier loaded with 3-6-9 complex omegas. The combo of the hemp seed oil and hemp extract is optimal for absorption into the body. 

What is the “Entourage Effect”?

The entourage effect is used to describe what happens when multiple compounds from the industrial hemp plant work together. This gives stock to the “whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” These components work together to enhance the potential benefits of the plant, with each compound amplifying the therapeutic properties of the others while mitigating their potential side effects. Though the impact of this effect has not yet been validated through clinical studies, this synergistic interaction is believed to increase the potential for therapeutic effect.

Where Is Warfighter Hemp’s Hemp Grown?

All of Warfighter Hemp’s products are harvested and processed with hemp organically grown in Colorado.

Can Warfighter Hemp’s ZERO Line Cause Me to Fail a Drug Test?

THC is inherently present in trace amounts in hemp plants. The legal limit of THC in hemp is no more than 0.3%. This is why we also created Broad Spectrum THC-Free line called “ZERO” of CBD products with ZERO percent of THC present. However, much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for THC. Furthermore, the underlying science behind the conversion of certain cannabinoids, for example cannabidiol (CBD), when consumed, to other related cannabinoids, for example THC, is not yet fully understood. Although the risk is low, individual biochemistry, the possibility of conversion of cannabinoids and the possibility of trace, but legal, amounts of THC inherent in hemp products. It is possible to fail a drug test while using Warfighter Hemp products. We also strongly suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing.

How to Store and Care for CBD

Should I Refrigerate my Warfighter Hemp CBD?

We purposely use amber bottles to help reduce any UV light entering the bottle. We recommend storing your Warfighter Hemp CBD anywhere that the bottle isn’t exposed to constant light and or heat, and the refrigerator seems to be the best place for many of our customers. If you have more questions, please contact us at [email protected].  

Where is the hemp certificate of analysis and batch/test results?

Our Certificates of Analysis are available here. Warfighter Hemp uses a third-party lab to test each and every one of our products to ensure their potency and quality. We update the Certificates of Analysis regularly to ensure that you are getting the most up to date information.

How to Take CBD

How Much Oil Does a Dropper Carry?

The dropper on all 30mL bottles holds 1 mL of Warfighter Hemp Oil. Therefore, each 30mL bottles contain 30, 1 mL servings. Depending each individual’s dosing levels, the dropper will allow for 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 or a full dropper of the product.

To use our droppers, gently squeeze the rubber end to drop up the liquid, and then release. 

What Is the Best Way to Take CBD Oil? 

Warfighter Hemp’s customers take our hemp oil products sublingually, meaning, under the tongue. Using the dropper, squeeze the desired amount of tincture under your tongue. 

Then, hold the liquid under your tongue for 60 to 90 seconds before swallowing (or as long as you can.) Holding it under your tongue is what allows faster and direct absorption into your bloodstream*, so it’s important not to skip this step.  

When ingesting CBD oil, it is normal for it to have a “hempy” aftertaste. For this reason, at Warfighter Hemp we also provide an option including organic peppermint oil, for a natural peppermint flavor. We’d love to offer other flavors, but we also want to keep it organic!

The ingredients in both teas are organic and non-GMO. 

What is Hemp Hand Sanitizer or What is CBD Hand Sanitizer?

CBD has many wonderful properties. In fact, researchers have tested CBD on bacteria like staph (skin) and strep (throat) strains and found it to be effective. (Read the research here) After learning this, Warfighter Hemp created a CBD Hand Sanitizer with Ethyl Alcohol 80% (antiseptic), glycerin, hydrogen peroxide, purified water USP, aloe vera gel, 800 mg CBD, lavender oil, carbomer 940, propanediol, triethanolamine. It is a great alternative for when soap and water are not available. Plus, the addition of lavender oil allows for a soothing smell that our customers shared as “enjoyable.” 

Warfighter Hemp CBD Hand Sanitizer is found as a gel, or a spray. Both options work identically, it simply matters in the delivery for the customer. Warfighter Hemp customers have told us the gel pump works really great in the car! Just get in, pump and go! Whereas the spray is better for your gym bag, purse or satchel. 

If you are using hand sanitizer a lot during the day (such as our nation’s heroes: nurses, doctors, firefighters, EMT’s and so on) we also recommend Warfighter Hemp Full Spectrum 1500 mg Topical lotion to help with soothing the skin to avoid the harsh dryness the alcohol in sanitizer can exhibit on the skin on your hands.
