What is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. There are over 100 unique phytocannabinoids found in hemp, one of which is CBD!
How is CBD different from THC and marijuana?
CBD (cannabidiol) is one of the many compounds or “cannabinoids” found in the cannabis plant. Unlike its “high” producing cousin THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD has no psychoactive or mind-altering effects.
While CBD is found in both hemp and marijuana (which are different strains of the cannabis plant), CBD’s concentration in hemp is much higher. Hemp also has essentially no THC (<0.3%).
At Honeybolt, we source our CBD strictly from organic hemp and utilize a proprietary extraction technique that entirely removes all THC to 0.0%.
How does CBD work?
We all have a complex “endocannabinoid system” operating within our brain and body that helps regulate various cognitive and physiologic functions. CBD enhances the endocannabinoid system’s innate activity, helping to bring about a natural state of calm and well-being. One of the main ways it does this is by inhibiting the breakdown of one of our primary endocannabinoids, anandamide (also known as the “bliss molecule”), leading to higher levels of it in our brain. CBD also works through other neurotransmitter systems, including the serotonin system, which is partly why it is effective for anxiety and depression.
Where is Honeybolt’s CBD from?
Honeybolt’s CBD is derived from hemp plants grown on our partner farms in Colorado. Read more about the importance of sourcing quality hemp under “How does Honeybolt compare to other brands” below.
Where are Honeybolt products made?
All of our products contain CBD that is extracted from domestic American hemp plants and are manufactured in the USA. We believe it is important to note however that our face masks themselves are made in Korea, the leader in cosmetic production, with the same great Colorado CBD we use in all of our other products.
How does Honeybolt compare to other brands?
Quality, consistency, and transparency are our biggest priorities. We make wellness products promote general health and strive to meet as many dietary restrictions as possible with products that are vegan, gluten free, kosher, and organic.
Quality: We only use ingredients that we’d be comfortable using ourselves. We believe that whole-plant medicine is more effective than isolated ingredients. Other brands use CBD isolate, which is made in a lab and often comes from China, where the quality and consistency is largely unknown. While using isolate enables high concentration of CBD, it is stripped of all other beneficial compounds. Honeybolt uses a proprietary extraction technique that isolates and entirely removes THC from our oil, while retaining all of the plant terpenes and other beneficial phytocannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDV and more. Our targeted approach and whole-plant mindset create a product that stands out from the competition.
Consistency: We source our raw material (hemp) from reliable hemp farms that grow organic plants in Colorado. By starting with the best ingredients possible, our extractions and formulations capitalize on the natural goodness of the hemp plant. Through a refined practice and implementation of Standard Operating Procedures, we ensure that each batch of Honeybolt products exceeds manufacturing standards.
Transparency: All of our products are tested throughout the manufacturing cycle and upon completion. At Honeybolt, we’re people who always read the nutritional label on products in the grocery store because we care about what we consume. It’s part of our routine to live a healthy lifestyle. Each order comes with a certificate of analysis from an independent third-party lab. We want every order to be just as awesome as your first!
We could use this whole page to tell you why we’re better, but after a short time using our products, we think they’ll do the talking for us.
Why are Honeybolt vape pens so much better than other brands?
Honeybolt’s vape pens use CBD made from distillate. Distillate is the end product of an extraction process that yields oil through distillation. By doing so, it retains all of the other phytocannabinoids.
What’s the difference between hemp oil and hemp seed oil?
Hemp oil is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant. It is often used interchangeably to refer to CBD oil. Honeybolt’s products contain hemp oil (aka CBD oil aka cannabidiol).
Hemp seed oil is derived from hemp seeds, not the fully bloomed plant. Our products do not use hemp seed oil.
Why is there MCT oil in your tinctures and what is it?
Tincture needs carrier oil in order to provide accurate dosing of CBD. When it comes to selecting carrier oil, there are a couple options available. These include hemp seed oil, grapeseed oil and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). We use MCT because it has the mildest flavor and does not affect the color of the natural CBD.
What’s the shelf life of each product?
Vape Pens: 6 months from the date of purchase.
Tincture: 18 months from the date of purchase.
Gummies: 18 months from the date of purchase.
Supplements: 18 months from the date of purchase.
Balm: 18 months from the date of purchase.
Face Masks: 24 months from the date of purchase.
Dog Treats: 18 months from the date of purchase.
Do you ship internationally? (outside USA)
Yes we do! We ship to all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and overseas.
Is there any THC in these products?
Nope! Honeybolt products are made with a proprietary extraction technique that removes all THC while retaining other powerful and synergistic cannabinoids that enhance the performance of CBD. While CBD products are required to have less than 0.3% THC, our products contain 0.0%.
Will CBD show up on a drug test?
No. CBD is not screened for on a drug test.
If you are worried about testing positive for THC, we can answer that for you as well. In theory, if you took enormous quantities of CBD, the potential trace amounts of THC could possibly lead to a false-positive drug test, the same way eating a ton of poppy seeds could lead to a false-positive for opiates. The concern of testing positive for THC only comes into play when you’re using CBD products that contain trace amounts of THC. All Honeybolt products use CBD that has been stripped entirely of THC and contain 0.0% therefore eliminating the risk of a false-positive.
Are there any side effects of CBD?
CBD is widely considered to be safe and generally known to have no side effects. However, just like any other supplement, there is a possibility that it could cause an adverse reaction similar to a food allergy. If you are nursing, pregnant, or take prescription medications, please consult your physician prior to use.
What else should I know about CBD?
Taking any supplement is only part of what it means to take proper care of yourself. We recommend optimal nutrition, regular exercise, and tending to your emotional and spiritual wellbeing as core components of a healthy lifestyle. CBD is a helpful tool in achieving overall health and wellness but it is not a “magic pill” that will solve all problems. We hope that using Honeybolt is one of the steps you take to feel and be the best you!
