FAQ - Harmonic
When it comes to CBD, there are so many options to choose. We set out to create the highest quality, safest and most mindfully processed CBD product so that women would not only feel confident in starting a daily CBD regimen for themselves, but also feel amazing in the results.
To begin, it all starts with ensuring the quality of ingredients. The hemp we harvest to extract our CBD is grown under the strictest of guidelines and care in the United States to ensure safety, purity and consistency.
From there we control every aspect of the extraction process, applying rigorous standards of purification resulting in the highest quality full spectrum hemp oil that retains many of the hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that researches suggest have a much wider range of health benefits when taken together. We go to great lengths after processing as well to ensure purity, traceability, and safety through independent third-party lab testing.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes homeostasis.
How does CBD work?
CBD’s effects are a result of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with enzymes.
What is the difference between CBD and hemp?
Hemp is a variety of cannabis that is grown for food and fibers. CBD is a molecular compound found in the plant’s extracts. Harmonic CBD is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp known as PCR hemp, or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. This proprietary strain is far richer in CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes than the basic hemp plant used by most CBD producers.
Is Harmonic’s product safe?
There are no known incidences of illness caused by consumption of CBD oil. Also, all Harmonic products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee they are free of any potential contaminants.
What is CBD typically used for?
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
Are there any negative side effects to taking Harmonic?
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
What kind of testing/analysis is performed on your products?
All Harmonic products go through rigorous testing by third-party labs to assure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids.
Do you test for potency, pesticide, heavy metals, and yeast/mold?
Yes! All Harmonic products go through a rigorous series of tests by third-party labs to ensure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids.
Will CBD get me high?
Nope! Unlike marijuana and THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.
Does CBD interact with other medications?
Unfortunately, much more research needs to be done in this area. If you are taking prescription medications, consult with a qualified medical professional before starting Harmonic.
How long will it take to receive benefits from taking CBD oil?
In some cases, such as when using a vaporizer or tincture, users often report almost immediate results. However, most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more. Personal results will vary.
What methods of extraction do you use?
All Harmonic products contain either broad or full spectrum CBD oil produced by a gentle extraction method. This retains the beneficial compounds produced by the cannabis plant. We do not use any harsh solvents in our extraction process.
Where is your hemp grown?
Industrial hemp is like any other crop. It is farmed all over the world, including approximately 40 U.S. states. The special strain of hemp used to produce Harmonic products is grown in the USA.
Is your product organic? Vegan friendly?
Harmonic hemp is grown using natural methods and our products contain other organic ingredients. As of right now, our softgels contain bovine-derived gelatin, making them not vegan-friendly, but we are hoping to introduce a softgel in the future that will be 100% vegan.
I have a gluten allergy. Can I use your products?
Yes! All Harmonic products are gluten free.
Will CBD benefit me if I’m healthy?
Because of its ability to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is often used by those who don’t have any specific concerns.
