Introduction to CBD

CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid compound found in the cannabis plant. It is one of the many cannabinoids found in the plant, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the psychoactive compound that produces the "high" associated with cannabis use.


CBD comes from hemp plants, not marijuana. Hemp and marijuana are close relatives, but not the same. By definition, hemp contains no more than .3% THC - the psychoactive compound that is found in higher concentration in marijuana.

CBD is distinct from other cannabinoids primarily due to its non-psychoactive nature. Unlike THC CBD does not induce a "high" sensation commonly associated with marijuana use.

Instead, CBD offers potential health benefits without altering one's mental state, making it a safe and versatile option for various wellness applications. Its unique interaction with the endocannabinoid system sets it apart, allowing users to experience therapeutic effects without the psychoactive effects often linked to other cannabinoids like THC.

There’s so much confusion between these terms. Some people refer to “hemp oil” when speaking about hemp seed oil while others use it as shorthand to refer to an oil that carries CBD extract.

Let’s tackle the first one first: oil from hemp seeds is primarily composed of dietary fats, which means it can provide benefits for skin but does not include all of the same plant compounds (such as CBD).

These phytocannabinoids -- cannabidiol, among others-- are found naturally in the leaves and flowers (also known as “aerial parts”) of hemp.

After deriving the cannabinoids from plant parts during our production process, we’re left with a full-spectrum hemp extract that retains a range of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids - all of which are found naturally in hemp. This extract is then diluted with a carrier oil to make the final Organic Grit product.

Our Process

We derive our CBD from hemp plants, utilizing an ethanol extraction method.

The resulting extract then undergoes a purification procedure to eliminate undesired fats, chlorophyll, and ethanol.

Following this, through additional refinement processes such as distillation and crystallization, the full spectrum extract is transformed into isolated CBD.

Since 2019, our hemp is sourced from our partners in Wisconsin.

Our CBD strain Hawaiian Haze Sativa was chosen due to its anxiety reducing effects through promoting uplifting energy and focus (as opposed to lethargic effects that one may receive from using other CBD strains) 

Organic Grit offers both Full Spectrum and THC-free product options.

Our Full Spectrum products are rich in CBD, a diverse range of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant compounds, all containing less than 0.3% THC by dry weight.

For those seeking THC-free alternatives, our products are crafted using CBD isolate, although it's important to note that most hemp-derived CBD products may still contain trace amounts of THC.

CBD Legality and Safety

The legality of CBD varies from state to state and country to country. In the US CBD derived from industrial hemp with less than 0.3% THC is federally legal.

However, individual state laws may differ.

To determine the legality in your specific location, consult your local regulations or a legal expert. Always ensure you are compliant with local laws when considering the use or purchase of CBD products.

While CBD alone typically doesn't trigger positive drug tests, some hemp-derived CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC.

These tiny THC levels could show up on a drug screening, depending on the lab's testing thresholds.

Organic Grit adheres to the federal THC limit of less than 0.3% by dry weight, but a positive test result is still possible.

To ensure compliance, always check a CBD company's lab results for potency within federal limits. Lack of available or third-party-verified lab results may indicate non-compliance.

Please note that drug tests can't distinguish between THC from hemp-derived CBD or marijuana use.

If this is a concern, consider abstaining from CBD products. Organic Grit is not liable for positive drug test results.

When seeking a reputable CBD product, focus on factors such as third-party lab testing, transparency in sourcing and production, clear labeling, and customer reviews to ensure quality and authenticity.

Organic Grit excels in these areas, providing lab results for all CBD products it sells.

How to Use

Everyone is unique. With that being said, not everyone will require the same dosage of CBD to feel the benefits. We created an easy to read chart for your reference below.

How much CBD should I take?

FDA DISCLOSURE: In accordance with federal regulation we cannot make health claims regarding our dietary supplements. We can only recommend our products for general wellness. Our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.

We craft our full-spectrum products through whole-plant extraction using food-grade alcohol. Our meticulous process ensures the preservation of the complete range of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes found in the hemp plant, alongside CBD. This diverse array of compounds, including THC, shows promise in ongoing research for potential synergistic benefits. It's important to note that the THC content in our full-spectrum products consistently adheres to the federally mandated limit of less than 0.3% by dry weight.

While our full-spectrum products are standardized to specific CBD potencies, the levels of other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids may naturally vary from batch to batch due to the inherent diversity of plant extracts.

For those seeking THC-free options, our broad-spectrum products retain some additional plant components found in full-spectrum products but contain no detectable THC.

The answer to that question is highly individualized, as it depends on your specific needs and how your body responds. Every individual is unique, and their reactions to hemp extract with cannabinoids can vary significantly.

This is because hemp extract interacts with the body's internal Endocannabinoid System, which plays a vital role in maintaining overall health. As a result, the effects of hemp extract are personalized and depend on your internal physiological conditions.

That said, many people report experiencing a sense of relaxation, while others find that hemp extract helps improve their focus and concentration.*

The best way to find out how CBD will work for you, is to try it for yourself!

CBD is generally well tolerated and considered safe. As with any other supplement, there is a chance that it could cause adverse reactions for some people, and/ or could interact with certain medications. As with any dietary supplement, consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, have or suspect a medical condition or are taking any medications.

Although our products do not necessitate refrigeration, we suggest storing your CBD tinctures and topicals in a cool, dry location, much like how you would store honey. It's essential to shake well before each use.
