Frequently Asked Questions
According to Wikipedia, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered by scientists in 1940. It is one of some 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain.
Hemp oil (hemp seed oil or hempseed oil) is obtained by pressing hemp seeds. Cold pressed, unrefined hemp oil is dark to clear green in color, with a nutty flavor. Although it has multiple health benefits, the Hemp Oil is more like Olive Oil and has no cannabinoids like CBD.
Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of cannabis sativa while CBD oil is made from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of the same plant. … For example, hemp seeds contain only trace amounts of CBD, while hemp leaves are more potent and can contain up to 40% CBD.
Although Hemp and Marijuana are both part of the Cannabis family, they are not the same. Hemp is completely different from marijuana in its function, cultivation and application. The two plants look different and the amount of THC in Marijuana can range from 25-30%. Meanwhile, Hemp has only 0.3% or less THC, making it impossible to feel any psychoactive effect or get a “high”.
No. Our chromatographic purification process has been able to selectively remove the psychoactive component, Delta 9-THC, from our CBD hemp oil, while still delivering the wanted entourage effect of the cannabinoid components. Lab reports for each batch are available in the product description section of our website.
Over the past 40 years, researchers have identified an Endocannabinoid system in the human body, made up of endocannabinoids (chemicals naturally produced by the human body), cell receptors for cannabinoids, and enzymes that break cannabinoids down. Plant-based Cannabinoids, like CBD, can interact with our own cannabinoids to affect our Endocannabinoid system. This process is said to have significant potential to reduce symptoms of many health conditions, related to pain and inflammation.
The most popular use of CBD is to support the body’s natural processes. Just as Cannabinoids are an integral part of the body’s ability to balance its physiological systems, CBD has been used to supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints, relieving stress and frustration, improving mild mood changes, cramps and edema associated with menstrual cycles.
Medical marijuana, same as recreational marijuana, comes from the dried flowers and leaves of the Marijuana Cannabis plant and contains a high ratio of psychoactive chemical Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While THC is said to help manage reducing nausea and chronic pain, it is also associated with a euphoric “high,” impaired memory, loss of coordination, slower speech, and altered sense of time.
Holistic Purity CBD has 0% THC and can be taken day or night, with zero side effects associated with THC.
Full spectrum CBD is the extract that contains all the compounds of the hemp plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and THC. All components of the plant work together to produce the “entourage effect” that many find to be therapeutic. Broad spectrum CBD is the same as full spectrum minus the THC. This is ideal if you want the medicinal qualities of hemp without the psychoactive effect of THC.
Unlike Broad-spectrum or Full-spectrum CBD, the CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that contains 99% pure CBD and no other cannabinoids. It is the most basic form of CBD, however it’s much harder to make because it takes an extra step, after initial extraction, to also take out the rest of the cannabinoids and terpenes, leaving only CBD. At the same time – the CBD Isolate may not be the most effective when it comes to its effects. The Holistic Purity CBD product line offers the more widely used broad-spectrum CBD, which consists of pure CBD as well as a range of other cannabinoids, which all work in concert with CBD to create the entourage effect, while at the same time containing 0% THC.
Our 0% THC Hemp oil is 70-90% CBD in addition to 30+ terpenes and other beneficial components.

Currently, there is not enough research into long term use of CBD, and no medical claims can be made, however, it is known that CBD is non-toxic and is not known to have any side effects. Many use CBD oil products to relieve symptoms associated with anxiety and depression, pain management and more ailments which are typically treated with prescribed medications. Some of these prescription medications are known to have harmful side-effects such as kidney and liver diseases, sexual dysfunction, insomnia and more. In addition, some pharmaceutical drugs used to treat pain, anxiety and other ailments can be addictive and lead to substance abuse.
It is known that CBD is non-toxic and is not known to have any side effects. However, EXTREMELY LARGE quantities of CBD may cause drowsiness. Do not consume extremely large quantities of CBD if you need to be alert and focused.
CBD Oil can be administered in many ways, and the method is entirely up to the individual user. The most popular administration of CBD is sublingual. Our tinctures deliver CBD with Hemp and MCT oil (derived from coconut) as carrier oils. Some people don’t enjoy the taste of oil in their mouth, and prefer Nanoemulsion/Water Soluble Soft Gels which contain no oil and absorb up to 10 times faster. For topical use, silky smooth Balm delivers CBD via bees wax. Whatever your preferred use of CBD, you can be sure to get the most from Holistic Purity products.
There are a lot of variables when considering the right serving size. It also depends on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for general well-being and minor health issues. Some people take CBD on a daily basis as part of their diet and exercise routine.
Our bodies are different and the effect of CBD on our bodies is different as well. Some people feel it working 30-60 minutes after sublingual application, some might not feel anything. Soft Gels work gently and under 30 minutes. Sometimes you need to combine products for maximum effect, like soft gels and balm. Depending on the issue, it is always best to try low and work yourself up to the serving method and amount that works best for you.
