FAQS

It hasn't been easy to get credit card processing for CBD or Hemp products lately.  

Currently we only accept E-check deposits through Green Payment Processing due to the recent shortage and difficulty in merchant processors giving accounts to new Hemp/CBD online and retail stores for credit card processing.  Green Payment is just like writing a check but it's done over our secure payment servers, and is verified in less than 24 hours.  We know many like to pay with credit cards, but for now we hope you find the value in using our E-check options.  As soon as we have credit card processing capability, we will let you know!

Why do your products refer to “active compound” versus CBD?

CBD as an isolated molecule, is currently under investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for potential therapeutic use and cannot be marketed and sold as such. Bent Herbalist products are formulated using full spectrum hemp oil and not the isolated molecule CBD alone. We use the phrase “active compound” to differentiate between isolated CBD and our naturally occurring CBD derived from a full spectrum, phyto-cannabinoid rich source.

Why isn't there much health information or guidance related to  dosages on this website?

We find that the more you talk about health issues and how CBD can help you,  the easier it is for the FDA to flag you.  Even though these products are totally legal, the federal government continues to question any type of health claims.   CBD as an isolated molecule, is currently under investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for potential therapeutic use and cannot be marketed and sold as such. We want to continue to offer this amazing product and so we offer with any purchase you an set up a FREE consult with Bent Herbalist to discuss personal uses and dosage.  No other company will offer you this!!!  You will receive this link in your confirmation email and invoice after purchase. 

 

Will consuming 0.3 wt% THC cause intoxication or being “high”?

Is CBD safe to consume?

The World Health Organization published a report in (June 2018 https://www.who.int/medicines/access/controlledsubstances/CannabidiolCriticalReview.pdf) that CBD exhibits no effects indicative of abuse or dependence potential.

Do I need a medical marijuana card to purchase or use CBD?

No. Bent Herbalist products are derived from legal hemp. The legal definition of hemp means the product contains less than 0.3 wt% THC.


Are CBD products legal in all 50 US States?

Will consuming CBD influence results of a drug test?

Drug tests screen for the psychoactive compound THC, not CBD.  Legal full spectrum hemp oil may contain trace amounts of THC and if taken in extremely high quantities (over 1,000 mg per day), a drug screen may potentially yield a positive result.  

How is Bent Herbalist CBD extracted?

Our Colorado, USA sourced CBD oil is extracted from premium Cannabis sativa hemp flowers with a food grade alcohol solvent.  The use of a clean, food grade solvent allows for the full extraction of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes from the hemp plant material.  Any residual solvent remaining from the extraction process is washed out and the final product is tested to ensure full solvent removal. 

What kind of laboratory testing is performed on Bent Herbalist products?

All Bent Herbalist products are tested for purity, potency, metals, pesticides and solvents.  Our products are third-party tested by a minimum of two independent, reputable laboratories for maximum confidence in test results.
