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
  • Pain relief
  • Anxiety improvement
  • Healthier lifestyles
  • Anti-inflammation
  • Natural sleep aid

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 hemp CBD 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 source material 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 first to be sure, as many factors are involved, such as metabolism, body mass, and more.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are powerful aromatic molecules responsible for the flavor and aroma of plants. But terpenes do more than provide flavor and aroma. They also support other cannabis molecules 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 molecules that have the ability to directly interact with our bodies and minds. Cannabinoid molecules are relatively unique to the cannabis plant, but other plant-derived molecules such as flavonoids and terpenes also bind to our cells and influence our experiences.

In addition to their aromas, terpenes have direct interactions with our bodies. For instance, alpha-pinene and beta-caryophyllene interfere with molecules that dilate our blood vessels. Less dilation equals less inflammation. Evidence suggests that whole-plant cannabis (that includes terpenes) is superior to isolated compounds from the plant. This isn’t entirely surprising: if pinene is anti-inflammatory, and CBD is also anti-inflammatory, then the body has a chance to fight inflammation from two different angles. This combined benefit is known as the Entourage Effect; cannabinoids like THC and CBD produce better outcomes when they are consumed alongside a supporting cast of terpenes.

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, and that is our reason to exist: to serve our beloved customers with effective and fairly valued formulations to enhance and enable our best lives.

What’s difference between MCT and coconut oil?

MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil used in our products 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?

Please begin with a single capsule or half dropper full and increase every 1-3 days in order to determine your minimum effective dose. Generally our products are designed to last an average of one month, and are normally manufactured within 5 days of shipment for the best freshness in the industry!

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. Popular combinations are Anxiety + Sleep at night time, and Anxiety + Inflammation in the morning for the day ahead.

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.
