  • What is CBD?
    CBD (Cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid compound found in hemp plants. CBD is just one of many cannabinoids found in hemp plants, along with other potentially beneficial compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids.
  • What are the benefits of taking CBD?
    Most people use CBD to relieve muscle and joint discomfort, promote relaxation, and as a daily general health and wellness routine. Due to federal regulations, companies cannot make any claims regarding CBD's ability to prevent, diagnose, mitigate, treat or cure diseases. Any company that makes specific claims to these effects should be avoided.
  • What is the entourage effect?
    This is when CBD and other cannabis compounds work with each other and become more effective when they are found together versus when they are isolated. By using a whole hemp extract, you are receiving all the compounds from the cannabis plant and therefore are benefitting from the synergistic action between the compounds.
  • How is CBD oil extracted from the plant?
    Applecrest Hemp Collective uses supercritical CO2 extraction, which is a completely solventless process. In short, liquid CO2 attaches to the hemp compounds and separates them from the plant matter. The mixture is then heated ro return the CO2 to a gaseous state while leaving the hemp extract behind. This is generally considered the cleanest method of extraction available.
  • Will using CBD products get me high?
    No, CBD is non-psychoactive and will not get you high. The hemp plants grown by Applecrest Hemp Collective are considered industrial hemp, in the sense that CBD levels are relatively high but the psychoactive cannabinoid THC is present at levels below 0.3%. This is not enough to produce any psychoactive effects, even if taken at extremely high doses (which is not recommended).
  • Is CBD legal?
    Yes. Following the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill, hemp and CBD are 100% legal at the federal level. Our products are produced from hemp plants grown in Minnesota, and we are part of the Industrial Hemp Pilot Program, licensed through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture as a grower and processor of hemp.
  • Will CBD products affect a drug test?
    Each hemp crop we produce is tested by the state of Minnesota and confirmed to have less than 0.3% THC. We conduct our own additional third party lab tests on each product to ensure these limits are not exceeded. However, it is possible that trace amounts of THC may show up on a drug test, depending on the sensitivity of the test.
