Frequently asked questions

ARE CBD PRODUCTS LEGAL TO SHIP TO ALL 50 US STATES?


Yes. LOHI ships hemp-derived CBD products to all 50 States. The United States Farm Bill of 2014 classified industrial hemp as containing less than 0.3% THC. Because the products we carry contain either 0.0% THC (Hemp-Derived CBD isolate) or less than 0.3% THC (full-spectrum), we are allowed by U.S. federal law to ship to all states.




WHAT IS CBD?


CBD is considered a phytochemical, which is a chemical compound that's produced naturally by plants. More specifically, CBD a.k.a Cannabidiol is a phytocannabinoid (plant cannabinoid). Alongside CBD, there are currently more than 113 known active phytocannabinoids which are produced in the resin gland of different cannabis plant species. CBD is primarily known for it's anti inflammatory, analgesic, anti-oxidative & regulatory properties.




ARE THE HEMP-DERIVED CBD PRODUCTS WE CARRY PURE AND NATURAL?


Yes. We ensure that the products we're carrying are tested by independent third-party labs. This allows us to choose high quality products that are free of heavy metals, pesticides, toxins, or any unwanted compounds.




MCT OIL VS HEMP SEED OIL


MCT oil is derived from cocount & it stands for “Medium Chain Triglycerides.” Medium-chain triglycerides are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms, which allows CBD & other cannabinoids to be metabolized quicker. Hemp seed oil is derived from hemp seeds, & is rich in several aminoacids, minerals & antioxidants. The fatty acids in hemp seed oil have aliphatic tails that are 16-20 carbon atoms, which result in CBD & other cannabinoids being metabolized at a slower rate.




ISOLATE, FULL SPECTRUM & BROAD SPECTRUM


These three main categories describe the type of cannabinoids a product has. Isolate products contain isolated CBD only, hence the name. These products contain no THC, & are completely safe for people that get regularly drug tested. Full Spectrum products contain CBD as the main cannabinoid, but also contain other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC, & THC (below 0.3%). Broad Spectrum products contain CBD, & other cannabinoids besides THC. These products are also safe for people that get regularely drug tested.




WILL ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS GET YOU HIGH?


No. Isolate & broad spectrum products only contain non-psychoactive cannabinoids, meaning that these cannot get you high. Full spectrum products consist mainly of non-psychoactive cannabinoids, but do contain minor traits of delta 9-THC, which is psychoactive. Nonetheless, the levels of delta 9-THC are below 0.3% & will not get you high.




WHAT ARE TERPENES?


Terpenes are aromatic flavonoids that are found in essential oils produced by nature. These chemical compounds are what give each flower, herb, & fruit its own unique scent and flavor. Just like CBD, terpenes are phytochemicals that have properties & benefits of their own, & many types of terpenes are produced alongside CBD in the hemp plant. Products that combine CBD or other cannabinoids with terpenes are the most effective; This is because cannabinoids & terpenes work harmoniously to enhance the given effects, this phenomena is known as the entourage effect.




WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT?


The hemp plant is known to contain over 480 natural compounds. Alongside cannabinoids, there are terpenes, flavonoids, minerals, fatty acids, clorophylls & more. This lead Professor Raphael Mechoulam (known as the "father of cannabis") to discover the interactive synergy between these different compounds. He named this phenomena the 'entourage effect", which is when several different compounds (including cannabinoids & terpenes) work harmoniously together to stimulate & enhance the therapeutic effects provided from each individual compound. This is a fundamental point in why full spectrum or whole plant products work more effectively than isolated products.




ARE THESE PRODUCTS SAFE?


Yes. All of the products we carry must have a mandatory lab test done to ensure that there aren't any heavy metals, toxins or any other unwanted compounds. These lab test results can be provided upon request.
