The World Health Organization released a report in 2018 stating that CBD is generally well tolerated, has a good safety profile, and has had no recorded public health-related problems to date.  The USFDA does not currently regulate CBD products but has approved one prescription drug, Epidiolex, for treatment of specific seizures containing 100mg of CBD per ml at a cost of approximately $1,400 per 100ml bottle.  In recent years mounds of anecdotal information strongly suggests that CBD can be a safe and effect product helping many people achieve health goals.  Click Here to see the USFDA's official position on CBD.

Our position on CBD is that CBD is a natural plant derived compound that closely mirrors the structure of various chemicals produced by the human body called endocannabinoids; which in turn work toward modulating and regulating homeostasis in the human body via the receptors of the endocannabinoid system.  We, like the FDA, believe that the critical question concerning the safety and effectiveness of CBD revolves around how the product is refined and manufactured. 

At Redeem, we take great care to ensure the purity and safety of our products.  We extract, refine, and formulate our products under cGMP conditions and always utilize third party testing to demonstrate our product's quality.  Our commitment to transparency has lead us to share the test results for each product lot here on our website.

Redeem offers CBD tinctures in Optimal Spectrum (Full Spectrum) and Broad Spectrum (Zero THC) formulations and multiple strengths and flavors. 

Optimal Spectrum tinctures are available in 750mg and 1500mg of CBD per 30ml bottle in both mint and natural flavors.  Optimal spectrum tinctures contain THC at levels below the legal limit of 0.3%.  Many of our customer prefer these products due to the synergistic effect of CBD, THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes, known as the Entourage Effect.   

Customers that are sensitive to THC or have concerns over testing positive for THC, prefer our Broad Spectrum products.  These products offer the synergistic balance of CBD, other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBC, and terpenes but do not contain detectable levels of THC.  Our Broad Spectrum tinctures are offer at 1500mg and 3000mg per 30ml bottle in orange citrus, spearmint, and honey lemon flavors that are slightly sweetened with organic stevia. 

After deciding between Optimal and Broad Spectrum, it is best to know how much CBD you plan on consuming each day. Our customers tend to take vastly different amounts depending on what they are using their CBD oil for. For those who don't know where to start, our team has created a Dosage Tracker with tools and information to help you figure out your custom dose. Within the Dosage Tracker there is a tool we coined the "Milligram Grid." This chart clearly lays out how long each bottle will last based on your dose and how much oil you consume. Using these tools, we think you will be better able to choose which spray tincture strength would work best for you.  Keep in mind that the higher milligram products generally offer the best value!

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive constituent found in the aerial parts (flower) of the hemp plant, meaning that it doesn't have an intoxicating effect. THC is the compound that does elicit a high. Our Optimal Spectrum oils do contain trace amounts of THC that are below the legal limit of 0.3%.  This is intentional, as THC adds to the synergy of the "Entourage Effect". But, simply put, our Optimal Spectrum oils don't contain levels of THC that would allow you to get high.

For those that are sensitive to THC or have drug testing concerns, we offer Broad Spectrum products that are completely THC free.

Our CBD oils are "hemp-derived", which means the cannabis plants that we use contain less than 0.3% THC (the federal limit). Even still, trace amounts of THC do end up in our CBD oil. And that's a good thing! THC is an additional cannabinoid that lends itself to the "Entourage Effect", a scientific phenomenon where cannabinoids and terpenes work in synergy to achieve a therapeutic advantage. So while you won't be getting high from our CBD, you will be getting the most robust and potent CBD available.

When it comes to getting a robust hemp extract (rich in cannabinoids and terpenes), "Full Spectrum" products are widely considered the premier option. This is because "Full Spectrum" solutions are marketed as containing all of the natural components of the cannabis plant. While this sounds nice, cannabinoid and terpene levels vary from plant to plant, strain to strain, and even by sections of a field due to variation in sunlight, moisture, and soil conditions. This means that the concentrations of minor cannabinoids and terpenes in many of our competitors products may vary greatly from batch to batch.  If you have ever used one of our competitors products and found it effective initially but latter found subsequent purchases to be less effective; this is most likely reason.  Inconsistency!

Redeem's Optimal Spectrum™ (Full Spectrum +) solution solves this problem. Each batch of Redeem CBD oil goes through a systematic balancing process. First, our whole-plant extract gets analyzed for concentrations of CBD, minor cannabinoids like CBC, CBG, and CBA, and the nine terpenes we specifically target.  Then, if the results find any component to be lacking, we'll add it to the extract in order to achieve our set thresholds. The big takeaway is this: Optimal Spectrum™ (Full Spectrum +) products build upon the benefits of a Full Spectrum solution by guaranteeing that the oil will not only be robust, but will also have an unparalleled consistency that takes full advantage of the Entourage Effect.  

Why yes, we do! If you love our product and would be excited to tell others about it, then this program is for you. As your referrals make purchases, we will compensate you for the work you put into spreading the word. To sign-up, click here or follow the affiliate link in the footer of our website.

CBD oil spray tinctures are taken orally in such a way to get into the bloodstream effectively. They often work best when applied under the tongue or on the inside of the cheeks, as there are unique glands in these areas that help the CBD metabolize more easily. Traditional CBD oil tinctures are packaged in dropper bottles and administered with a pipette, however, our tinctures come in innovative CBD spray bottles to provide maximum bioavailability.

Studies have shown CBD and other cannabinoids can cross the placenta and become incorporated into breast milk.  If you are pregnant or nursing, we recommend that you check with your doctor before taking any of our ingestible products.  

My Life + CBD

See our blog for more insight into how CBD can help you redeem your health.

Potentially. CBD interacts with enzymes in your body, which are the mechanism for metabolizing drugs. Depending on the drug, CBD can inhibit or enhance the metabolic breakdown of the medication, which has a direct impact on the effectiveness of the drug. This has been most often observed in cases where the CBD doses are far beyond what you'd receive from our product (i.e. high doses of CBD isolate), but we recommend consulting your physician if you are on other medications prior to taking any amount of CBD oil.

It is possible if you are using one of Redeem's Optimal Spectrum Oils.  Standard drug tests are usually checking for THC and its metabolites. As our hemp contains <0.3% THC, there is very little THC in our oils (your Certificate of Analysis will tell you exactly how much). However, if you need to be certain that you will not fail a drug test, we suggest that you explore our Broad Spectrum products.  Redeem's Broad Spectrum oils are THC free, which means that the THC has be removed from the CBD extract prior to formulation of the product.  The level of THC in our Broad spectrum oils is below the level of detection of even the most sensitive analytical methods and and will not trigger a positive drugs test for THC.  To learn more, we recommend reading this article from the official US Drug Test Centers website.

Since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp-derived CBD has been made legal on a federal level. This bill removed industrial hemp from the list of controlled substances on the basis that the plant contains <0.3% THC. Marijuna-derived CBD remains illegal on the federal level. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) released a directive in 2018 stating: "Products and materials that are made from the cannabis plant and which fall outside the [Controlled Substance Act] definition of marijuana are not controlled under the CSA. Such products may accordingly be sold and otherwise distributed throughout the United States without restriction under the CSA or its implementing regulations.”

While CBD is federally legal, that is only half of the story.  Most states have controlled substances acts that mirror federal law, but several have enacted their own legislation to regulate CBD within their boarders.   State regulations may place restrictions on how CBD can be consumed or ban CBD all together.  Click here to learn more and check the regulations in your state.  

There are many factors at play with this FAQ to include body type, metabolism, physical condition and symptoms, etc. Thus, there is no textbook answer for how much CBD someone should take. For this reason, we have created a tool to help you figure out your custom dose— the Dosage Tracker. It provides a recommended starting dose, some tips related to dosing, and materials for tracking your intake. And, as always, consult your physician for a professional opinion. An important fact to remember: More CBD is not always better. CBD is a biphasic substance, meaning that different concentrations will result in different effects. For example, lower levels tend to stimulate while higher doses tend to sedate. For this reason, increasing a dose doesn't necessarily translate to improved results.

Federal regulations do not currently allow us to make claims regarding the symptoms or conditions that our product may treat. Thus, we can only recommend our products for general health and wellness. However, an incredible amount of research is currently being conducted on the potential health benefits of CBD. The National Institute of Health is currently tracking over 600 clinical studies investigating the potential health benefits of CBD.

CBD Science

Redeem Therapeutics maintains a commitment to provide the highest quality natural alternatives, refined by science, to improve your health and wellness. In doing this, we remain transparent and truthful by providing third-party lab testing on all of our CBD products.

We like to think of CBD as a viable alternative to harmful and addictive pharmaceuticals. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring organic compound that can be extracted from the trichomes or resin glands located on the flower of the cannabis plant.

When introduced to the bloodstream or used topically, it serves as a catalyst for major biological functions as it interacts with receptors located throughout your body responsible for homeostatic regulation, pain, inflammation, appetite, sleep, and mood; to name a few. These receptors (CB1, CB2, and others) are part of the Endocannabinoid system.  CBD is a plant based cannabinoid that can act to supplement the naturally occurring cannabinoids called endocannabinoids produced by your body.

For a more comprehensive look into the potential benefits of CBD, check out our article entitled “Is CBD Right for Me?”

A discovery in 1992 found that your body contains an expansive network of receptors called the "Endocannabinoid System". These receptors are located on the surface of virtually every type of cell system in your body. CBD interacts with these receptors, both directly and indirectly, to improve their ability to regulate some of the most vital functions of the human body and maintain your body in a state of homeostasis.

Many people are unfamiliar with the distinctions between these three related terms. So let's break them down. Taking you all the way back to middle-school biology class, the term "cannabis" is the "genus" of a group of related plants— including both hemp and marijuana. Using the word cannabis is like calling your pet a "dog" instead of a "golden retriever". That makes "hemp" and "marijuana" the "species" of the cannabis genus. The distinction between these two is largely based on the array and concentration of the cannabinoids produced by the plant.  Hemp has a high CBD, low THC ratio while marijuana is high THC, low CBD. Hemp must contain less than <0.3% THC to be legally sold in the U.S.

The "Entourage Effect" is a term used to describe the improved synergy that occurs when a broad range of cannabinoids and terpenes are introduced to the body as opposed to just a single compound (i.e. CBD isolate). This effect is what drives the science behind our "Optimal Spectrum" solutions. Rather than simply accepting the variance that occurs from plant to plant, Redeem CBD oils undergo a meticulous balancing process to ensure sufficient levels of cannabinoids and terpenes are present in each batch. This balancing act ensures that your oil has the robust variety of compounds needed to achieve the Entourage Effect. For a highly technical review of the Entourage Effect, we recommend reading Dr. Ethan Russo's journal article on the Entourage Effect entitled "Taming THC."

Cannabinoids are naturally-occurring chemical compounds and include the likes of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC, to name a few.  Some are created by your body ("endo"-cannabinoids) while others are created by plants like cannabis ("Phyto"-cannabinoids). Both interact with receptors (CB1 and CB2) found on cells throughout your body in locations ranging from your brain down to your skin to your gut. These interactions can help with the regulation of other organic chemicals (i.e. serotonin, dopamine) and generally help to promote balance throughout the major systems in your body.  Cannabinoids also interact with receptors outside of the endocannabinoid system such as pain receptors called Vanilloid or TRP receptors.  The molecular structure of each cannabinoid determines where on the affected receptor the cannabinoid will bind and what effect it will trigger.  

Terpenes are essential oils contained within the trichomes, leaves and stems of the cannabis and many other plants. While known for their fragrance, terpenes also have a tremendous therapeutic effect. For example, Pinene is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which lends to pain relief. Limonene tends to incite an uplifted feeling, while also stimulating the immune system and protecting the G.I. tract.  And Myrcene, which is typically derived from hops and contributes to the "Hoppiness" of IPA's, is also know for it's sedative effect.  For a closer look at terpene profiles and their therapeutic benefits, check out this article.
