How to Hemp

We’ve made it easy to harness the power of plants by doing the research & development for you, but here are some helpful hemp facts that will guide you on your way to feeling your best, naturally.

Hemp & marijuana are both part of the cannabis plant genus. Cannabis contains cannabinoids, chemical compounds that exist naturally in the plant. The 2 primary cannabinoids are CBD and THC (the chemical compound that causes a euphoric “high”). Hemp contains high amounts of CBD but only trace amounts of THC, while marijuana is high in THC but low in CBD.

Hemp oil is made from hemp seeds. While it is an excellent source of protein & omega-3 fatty acids, it does not contain CBD or other cannabinoids.

Hemp extract is made from the hemp plant, and is rich in wellness enhancing cannabinoids, including CBD.

CBD is a chemical compound that exists naturally in the hemp plant. Think of it like Vitamin C in an orange. CBD has many scientifically proven wellness benefits, and has been used safely by humans for centuries.

No. Hemp contains only trace amounts of THC, the cannabinoid responsible for the euphoric “high”, so you get the wellness benefits of CBD and other cannabinoids without the “high”.

CBD and other cannabinoids from hemp interact with our own internal Endocannabinoid System (ECS), the purpose of which is to maintain balance in our body. When CBD interacts with our ECS, it can influence our physiology. And since cannabinoid receptors are found in all major organs, that influence can be far-reaching, and is why CBD has such a broad range of wellness benefits. See the video below to learn more.

The intent of our CBD-rich products is to give you the boost you need to help you achieve your wellness goals.

While nothing turn back time on an arthritic knee or eliminate all of life’s stressors, our products can help “lift the floor” so you can better manage your challenges, more easily incorporate other tools/modalities (ex. physical therapy, counseling, meditation, etc.), and truly improve your quality of life.

We’ve helped thousands of people enhance their wellness – sleep, stress, body, etc. – so they can excel at life. If you’re reading this, you’ve probably already tried a few (or more) things without success, aren’t happy with your status quo, and want to feel better.

We see you, and know that CBD-rich, plant-based solutions are an excellent tool to add to your wellness toolkit.

When ingesting CBD (ex. concentrates or chews), you’ll feel more physically and mentally calm. At higher doses, you’ll feel sleepy. When using topically (ex. balms or creams), you’ll get that same feeling of calm relaxation, but it will be focused on your body versus mind or mood.

Whatever isn’t going to sit on your shelf, because a product can’t benefit you if you don’t use it.

We always recommend full-spectrum products, so you get the benefits of the entourage effect. But for people who don’t want THC in their products, broad-spectrum and isolate are great choices. To learn more about types of hemp extract, click here.

Yes, CBD is generally considered safe for human consumption with no signs of toxicity in doses up to 1,500mg/day, and it is not possible to fatally overdose on CBD. The FDA considers CBD to be non-addictive (per the FDA-approved Sativex package insert).

And, of course, all Kind Lab products are third-party tested for potency and purity.

CBD is generally well tolerated, and unwanted side effects are generally minor. They may include dizziness, dry mouth, and/or gastrointestinal (GI) distress, and often resolve after the first few weeks of use.
