Q. Can Nature's Roots products get me high?
A. No, all cannabis plants are defined in two categories marijuana and hemp. By law Marijuana contains greater than 0.3% THC (Tetrahyrdocannibol) and hemp and CBD (Cannabidiol) contain less than 0.3% THC. All Nature’s Root products are hemp-based, so that have no chance of getting you high.

Stemming from our genetics using organic and sustainable ingredients, Nature’s Root delivers to you clean and simple products that are consistent, and great for you and the earth - “No Bad Stuff”.
Q. Will I pass a drug test?
A. Legally, we cannot tell you yes or no. Nature’s Root always guarantees our products will meet or exceed the legal standard of 0.3% or LESS THC. However, most of our products contain virtually 0% THC and are safe to use in a drug testing environment.
Q. What is Nature's Roots 3rd Party testing process?
A. Lab testing was originally developed to identify the amount of THC compound in each product. Currently testing distinguishes THC and a variety of other cannabinoids i.e., CBD, CBN, CBG, etcetera, found commonly in the cannabis plant. The METRC approved labs uphold the most rigorous cannabis testing standards in the Nation. They are the “*governments trusted cannabis legalization partner”. Each Nature’s Root hemp and CBD product is voluntarily submitted to this highly regulated system. The results are authenticated with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) proving accurate CBD content and potency. *Metrc.com
Q. What is the difference between hemp oil and hemp extract?
A. Hemp Seed Oil: The hemp plant provides multi-faceted benefits and is loaded with seeds that can be cold pressed much like olives for olive oil. The many benefits of hemp seed pressed oil are its high concentrations of three polyunsaturated fatty acids which includes the perfect 3 to 1 ratio of omega 6’s (linoleic acid) to Omega 3’s (alpha-linoleic acid).
Hemp Extract: Cannabinoids are a set of over 80 compounds found in the cannabis plant, as well as in the body. There are “endo” cannabinoids and “phyto” cannabinoids. Endo is naturally occurring in the body and Phyto is naturally occurring in the plant. Cannabinoids are a subset of terpenoids which are the naturally occurring chemicals that make up the scents and smells of the plant. Many are valued for the medicinal and herbal properties.
Q. Does CBD interfere with medications or have side affects?
A. Firstly, quality makes all the difference. There is certainly “snake oil” in the marketplace which is why Nature’s Root only uses CBD that adheres to the highest standard of quality (for more see our “3rd party Testing information). With that being said, it is important to understand that CBD is well tolerated by most individuals. As with all dietary supplements there may be a chance for reactions is some people and/or interactions with certain medications. Therefore, we recommend you consult your physician before use if you are nursing, pregnant, have or suspect a medical condition and/or are taking medications.
Q. What is the difference between Full -Spectrum, Broad-Spectrum hemp oil and CBD Isolate?
A. Imagine hemp extracts as a whole apple. Hemp has a medley of over 60 cannabinoid compounds like Cannabidiol (CBD) and phytocannabinoids like CBG and CBN. With healthy fats, terpenes, terpenoids, and flavonoids, all the compounds work synergistically to make hemp a kind of superfood. Think of full-spectrum hemp oil as if you were eating the entire apple-skin, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and all. Full-spectrum Hemp Oil is a whole plant extract providing the most complete array of available cannabinoids (0.3% or less THC, CBD, CBG, CBN…), fats and terpenes. Whereas Broad-Spectrum oil is like the juicing an apple, it has been further processed to remove the THC molecule therefore retaining CBD, other cannabinoids, some fats, terpenes, and 0% THC. Lastly, we land on CBD isolate, which is the CBD compound alone, no fats, no terpenes, no THC and no other cannabinoids similar to separating the Vitamin C from an apple.
Q. Is CBD legal in the United States?
A. The 2018 Farm Bill made a huge progress in the legalization of CBD products since it removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. Thanks to this hemp can now be legally cultivated in US soil.
To make it easy for you, CBD is legal in all 50 states, however the law is different from state to state. State laws dictate the legality on what type of CBD product people can use and which one is prohibited.
