FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol, CBD, is a cannabinoid that is found in hemp and cannabis plants. CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid in hemp and the 2nd most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis. CBD Shows Promise in These Areas of Potential Therapeutic Benefit:

  • Overall wellness
  • Calmness and decreased stress
  • Mood enhancement
  • Homeostasis
  • Healthier lifestyles
  • Support of sleep cycle

As more research is able to be conducted, the data compiled should substantiate the results that people around the world are already experiencing.

What is Broad Spectrum CBD Oil?

Broad spectrum CBD oil is full spectrum CBD oil with some or all of the THC removed. One benefit of broad spectrum CBD is that the entourage effect is still possible. The entourage effect refers to whole plant medicine where all of the cannabinoids and terpenes work together synergistically in the body.

Broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD are superior to CBD isolate because the cannabinoid and terpene profiles remain intact.

MHE Manufacturing creates each formula to achieve the entourage effect. Our true broad spectrum CBD contains a miniscule amount of THC to ensure that the natural integrity our hemp CBD extract is maintained. The amount of THC in our broad spectrum CBD is less than lab quantitative amounts (less than 0.3%).

Is there THC in the products?

Our broad spectrum hemp CBD extract is tested to have under 0.3% THC before we formulate our products. If you are subject to a very stringent drug test, please purchase a home testing kit, as many factors are involved, such as metabolism, body mass, and more. It is suggested to take the home screening test 1 – 2 weeks after starting the use of full or broad spectrum CBD products.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are powerful aromatic compounds that are responsible for the flavor and aroma of plants. Terpenes do much more than provide flavor and aroma. They also support other cannabis compounds in producing wanted effects. We call this the entourage effect, and it’s the reason terpenes have become such a critical piece of the cannabis puzzle.

Cannabis contains hundreds of natural chemical compounds that have the ability to directly interact with our bodies and minds. Cannabinoid compounds are relatively unique to the cannabis plant, but other plant-derived chemical compounds such as flavonoids and terpenes also bind to our cells and influence our experiences.

Terpenes have recognized and accepted therapeutic benefit. They are found in things that we eat every day like citrus fruit, herbs and spices. For example, if you season your food with black pepper you’re getting a little bit of beta-caryophyllene. In citrus fruit (the zest and pulp) there are several terpenes with the most prevalent being limonene.

How are the tinctures different from each other?

We have developed special blends of natural plant terpenes, after years of testing, in order to create the different formulations. Each formula has it’s own terpene percentages and terpene profiles.

Customer feedback strongly indicates their efficacy. We encourage our customers to send us a message, follow us on social media and reach out with your feedback regarding your experience.

What’s difference between MCT and coconut oil?

MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil used in some of our products. It is odorless, colorless, and liquid at room temperature, and is derived from coconut oil. Please consult your primary care physician if you have a coconut allergy.

How much do I (or my pet) take?

When starting the use of hemp CBD products, we suggest speaking with your physician first. Ensure that taking CBD products won’t interfere with any medications that you might currently been taking. Few CBD and pharmaceutical interactions are known.

It is ideal to start with a dropper of tincture or a single capsule once or twice a day. Using CBD is individualized — our suggested dose may be ideal for one person but may be too much or too little for you. Try the suggested dose for a couple of weeks and analyze your experience.If you don’t think the suggested dose is enough support,increase slightly.

Please review our guide Top “What CBD” Questions Answered to learn a bit about determining your ideal dose. You can also learn about bioavailability, which is mentioned in this guide, to understand how much of a dose your body is actually receiving — this also plays a role in determining the right dose for your needs. Browse through our guide Why the Bioavailability of CBD Matters to learn how much CBD your body actually receives from different delivery methods.

When it comes to pets — dosing is much different. Pets do have endocannabinoid systems, but their bodies are much smaller, in most cases. For that reason, pets need an exact dose based on their exact body weight. Please review our guide Comprehensive Guide to CBD for Pets to learn what the proper dosage structure is. Always speak with your pet’s vet before starting them on a CBD regimen.

Can I add tinctures to food or liquid?

Absolutely! Sub-lingual (under the tongue) is best for access to the bloodstream, but mixing with food or non-boiling drinks is perfectly fine to do. Also, the formulations are very effective when combined together.

Can I take CBD with a particular pharmaceutical drug?

Please consult your primary care physician and consult a primary resource such as PubMed.Gov for the latest research.
