NO. CBD is a component of the hemp plant. Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis, but hemp has very low (0.3% or less) levels of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol).
No. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the primary compound that produces a “high” and is abundant in marijuana. Hemp plants, from which CBD is extracted, have naturally low levels of THC. Commercially available CBD products must have 0.3% or less THC. Forge Hemp Company CBD products are made with hemp extracts and CBD isolate that are THC-Free, not just legally compliant.
We don’t want THC to be a barrier for anyone who wants to use CBD. Some people are concerned about THC showing up on a drug test. Other people have philosophical objections or stigma toward marijuana, or sensitivity to THC. Our choice to only make THC-free CBD products is in support of our vision: To bring the benefits of Hemp to more people everywhere.
Not exactly. CBD is a component of hemp extract, also known as full-spectrum or broad-spectrum hemp oil. The concentration of CBD in hemp extract can vary greatly based on the plants it came from and the way it was refined.
Many brands state the total amount of hemp extract or overall milligrams of cannabinoids in their product labels, but do not specify how much of that is actually CBD. Depending on the concentration of CBD in their extract, you could be getting significantly less CBD than you think. And getting the real numbers from labels or company websites isn’t usually easy.
Forge Hemp Extracts are clearly labeled that they contain (at least) 1500mg of CBD. In addition to 1500mg of CBD, there are small amounts of other cannabinoids, such as CBG. During formulation of each batch, we adjust our ratios of THC-Free Hemp Extract and Organic Hemp Seed Oil to ensure you are always getting 1500mg of CBD per ounce.
Don’t confuse CBD with hemp seed oil, commonly found in grocery stores. Hemp seed oil is a great source of Omegas 3 & 6, but contains no CBD.
This is where it gets tricky. The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) is very clear that manufacturers and distributors of CBD and hemp products may not make statements or claims about CBD as a treatment for a condition — such as pain, inflammation, sleeplessness, anxiety, etc. We’re following the rules as they evolve and suggest that each person do their own research, consult their medical professional, talk to friends and family who have tried hemp, and make their own determination whether CBD, CBN, Delta-8, or HHC is right for them.
No. Topical products applied to the skin will only affect the area(s) where they are applied. For example, applying our CBD cream, gel, or balm to your shoulder will have an effect on your shoulder, but not provide the holistic effects of a tincture or hemp flower.
We do not use any perfumes, either natural or artificial, in our topical products, they are derived from pure essential oils selected for their beneficial properties. The smell and flavor of our HHC distillates comes from fresh distilled hemp-derived terpenes, or botanical terpenes. See product pages for details.
CBD degrades when exposed to sunlight and/or high heat. We recommend keeping your Forge Hemp products out of direct sunlight, at room temperature, and using them within a year to ensure full potency.
