Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between broad-spectrum, full-spectrum and isolate products?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of more than 100 cannabinoids in the hemp plant. Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract contains verified levels of hemp-derived CBD as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes that work synergistically with CBD to enhance and complement its effects. This cooperation is known as the “entourage” or “ensemble” effect. You can read more about the difference between broad-spectrum, full-spectrum and isolate products here.
How do I choose the product that’s right for me?
There are no set guidelines for choosing one format (drops, sprays, softgels or protein powder), over another, but here are some factors you may want to consider:
- CBD Oil Drops offer flexibility for precision serving sizes, with 10 mg of CBD per 1 ml serving.
- CBD Oil Sprays also offer flexibility, with 5 mg of CBD in approximately 4 pumps. Both drops and sprays are good options for those wanting to experiment with their serving size.
- CBD Softgels offer a consistent and reliable serving size and are a great option for those looking for efficiency and convenience.
- Plant Protein Blend with CBD offers energy-enhancing benefits to help the body recover and maintain daily balance and contains 15 mg CBD per serving.
How should I calculate my optimal serving?
CBD and other cannabinoids affect people differently, so the ideal serving may vary by individual. Many experts recommend starting with a small daily serving and increasing slowly from there until you notice desired effects.
What conditions can CBD help with?
Many people use Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD to support overall balance and wellbeing. There is abundant research available online on the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids on a wide range of functions, including sleep, anxiety, inflammation and pain. We encourage those who are interested in learning more to explore this research.
Will Manitoba Harvest CBD get me high?
No, our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD is completely non-intoxicating. While some users of CBD report a sense of wakeful calm, Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD is not derived from the marijuana plant, does not result in a “high,” contains less than 0.3% THC (the compound that creates intoxication) and is considered THC Free.
Is it safe for me to take?
Studies have shown that CBD has a very favorable safety profile for most adults. Those with medical conditions or taking prescriptions, women who are pregnant or nursing, or children under the age of 2 should consult with a physician before consuming products that contain cannabinoids, including our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract.
Will I test positive for THC on a drug screen?
Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD is made from hemp with less than 0.3% THC and goes through an exacting extraction process to further minimize unwanted components in our final product.
Is Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract certified organic?
Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD is made using organic ingredients, including Organic Hemp Seed Oil, Organic Coconut MCT Oil and Organic Peppermint Oil.
The product itself is not currently certified organic, because it could not be under the previous Farm Bill. However, the crop is grown following organic practices and we are currently pursuing organic certification.
What is the benefit of a CO2 extraction process?
The CO2 extraction method uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to preserve and maintain the purity of the extract, leaving behind no chemical residues. Manitoba Harvest carefully selected this process to deliver a product that is safe, potent, consistent and THC Free*.
Why does the carrier oil matter for CBD Oils and CBD Sprays?
Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract CBD Oil Drops and CBD Oil Sprays are made with Organic Coconut MCT Oil, which has fewer calories than other oils, is high in bio-availability and preserves the potency of the extract’s antioxidants—unlike olive oil or other carrier oils, which can be unstable in liquid form if not refrigerated. MCT Oil also has a neutral flavor that’s pleasant on its own (in the Unflavored Oil), and a prime canvas for the natural minty flavor of our Peppermint CBD Oil Drops and CBD Oil Spray.
Where is your hemp grown?
After more than 20 years of sourcing hemp from Canadian farmers, we will continue to work with them for our line of hemp food products, including the hemp in the Plant Protein Blends with CBD. We are proud to be working directly with U.S. farmers compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill to source the highest-quality hemp for our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD.
Are your products third-party tested for safety and accuracy?
Yes! Every batch of Manitoba Harvest Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD goes through a rigorous third-party testing process to ensure maximum purity, label accuracy and absence of harmful toxins and residues. Each product is traceable from seed to shelf.
Where do you ship Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD?
Currently we ship within the U.S, excluding HI, ID, IA, LA, MS, NE, OH, SD, WY and Washington, D.C.
For the CBD Oil Drops, how many milliliters are in 1 full dropper?
For both the Unflavored and Peppermint CBD Oil Drops, 1 full dropper equals ~1 ml of Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract.
Can I travel with Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract with CBD?
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has updated its policy to allow products that contain no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis. Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract is THC Free*.
