Can I take CBD safely with my medications?
If you're currently on medications prescribed to you by your doctor you should discuss it with them first.
Always consult qualified medical advice before changing any treatment programs.
CBD can be safely taken with most prescription medications, but there are some precautions you should be aware of.
In some instances, a 2 hour gap may be recommended between taking CBD and any meds or supplements that are processed by the P450 enzymes to allow them to metabolize individually.
This includes over the counter remedies like Ibuprofen and Paracetamol.
Beta blockers, blood pressure, anticoagulants, and any other medications that carry a grapefruit warning generally require 4 hours in between to metabolize.
Please consult professional medical advice if you have questions or concerns with medications. We are providing this resource based on a question we receive regularly for educational purposes. It is not a substitute for qualified medical advice.
How is your CBD extracted?
Our partner labs adhere to the industry's best practices. Our isolate is extracted using CO2 and ethanol methods.
Why do you use MCT as a carrier oil?
Cannabinoids are fat soluble, meaning they break down and are stored in fat rather than water. Because of this trait, cannabinoids are most effective when consumed with fat, increasing their bioavailability. However, it appears that the type of fat matters.
Saturated fats are important carriers for cannabinoids to be absorbed into the body. Coconut oil contains saturated fat at levels close to 80%, giving cannabinoids the fat cells it needs to move through the body, encouraging faster processing and use by the endocannabinoid system.
Can I mix your tinctures in beverages/food?
We always advise that you take them sublingually (under the tongue). When ingested through a drink or edible, the cannabinoids or processed through your liver and then spread out into your bloodstream in which many cannabinoids get lost during this process.
Supplementing your regular dose with edibles or drinks is completely acceptable.
Why do some tinctures turn pink/purple?
This is due to an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase. Polyphenols are a type of naturally occurring antioxidant. Although our CBD mixed with MCT coconut oil starts out as a golden liquid, due to high concentrations of polyphenols, it may turn pinkish to purple the longer it is exposed to light and oxygen.
As with other coconut waters/oils, this does not change the quality or effectiveness of our oils. In fact, it actually verifies the high quality of our MCT oil.
Where do your terpenes come from?
We use certified natural, non-gmo, true grade, food grade botanical terpenes from True Terps. We declare that the terpenes meet the requirements for non-agricultural (non-organic) substances allowed as ingredients in or on processed products labeled as “organic” or “made with organic (specified ingredients or food group(s))” [7 CFR 205.605(a)(9)].
Where does your MCT Oil come from?
Our certificate organic MCT oil comes from Malaysia and is of premium quality. We receive it in plastic bottles that are BPA free. COA and organic certification will be provided upon request.
Consisting almost completely of C8 and C10 triglycerides, which are true medium chain, our MCT oil tinctures get readily absorbed without requiring additional assistance from digestive juices and enzymes.
