FAQ's

Why CBD?

At Fruit of the Earth Natural Health we believe in the power of plant medicines.  Did you know that most pharmaceutical compounds are derived from plants?  They are just synthesized so they can be patented for greater profits.  Side effects from these synthetics often result, whereas if you go to the natural plant source you will receive so much more benefit, naturally and safely.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of nature’s most profound plant medicines.  Humans and other mammals have specific cannabinoid receptor sites, primarily in the brain and central nervous system, and in peripheral organs, especially immune cells. They make up what’s called the endocannabinoid system.  Studies show that many cannabinoids have anti-inflammatory effects and can help with pain, tumors, seizures, muscle spasms, skin conditions, appetite stimulation, aggression, anxiety and neurological disorders.

Did you know that the U.S. consumes 80 percent of the world's opioids? Some states fill more prescriptions than there are people, with the morbid result that drugs are now killing more Americans than traffic accidents or gun violence. CBD offers a natural alternative.

 

Are CBD Oils and Tinctures the same as ‘Medical Marijuana’?
No! Our CBD is derived from organically grown hemp from Colorado.  It contains NO THC, which is the psychoactive part of Cannabis.  CBD does not get you high so you are not restricted from enjoying the health benefits of CBD. Our products do not contain any synthetic cannabinoids, only that which is naturally occurring in the original plant.

 

Is CBD Hemp Oil legal?
Yes! A medical card is not required to purchase CBD.

 

Will I get ‘high’ if I consume CBD Hemp Oil?
No, CBD does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC.

 

What method of extraction is used?
Our CBD is CO2 extracted.  Super Critical Fluid extraction is a safe and superior method, using state of the art equipment and harmless CO2 to compress it to upwards of 10,000 psi.  CO2 is very cold so it does not harm any heat-sensitive nutrients like enzymes or vitamins.

 

Do you use Hemp plants from China?
No, the CBD we use is organically grown in Colorado.
