Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of receptors in your brain and nervous system. These receptors work with cannabinoids made by your body, and those made by plants such as CBD. The ECS helps keep your body’s internal systems regulated and in balance. To read more about the endocannabinoid system check out the link below.

What is the difference between Hemp Oil and Hemp Extract?
Hemp oil is created by pressing hemp seeds. Cold pressed, unrefined hemp oil is dark to clear light green in color, with a nutty flavor. The darker the color, the more herbal the flavor will be. Hemp oil extraction is simple and relatively inexpensive. Hemp oil is already commonly found in many skincare products on the market. Here at High Tide Herbal we focus more on ensuring hemp oil has been added to all of our skincare products.
Hemp Extract is basically all the components of the Hemp plant. Whole plant extract will surely contain many cannabinoids. The more popular of the cannabinoids is CBD. Hemp Extract is commonly created into a few popular versions like Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum or Isolate. Hemp extract uses a more complex extraction process that uses more of the full plant. Hemp Extract CBD oil can be CO2 extracted, which takes longer and requires highly specialized equipment and training.
What is the difference between Full Spectrum, Broad spectrum, and CBD Isolate?
Full spectrum contains all phytonutrients and cannabinoids naturally found in the hemp plant. These ingredients include CBD, along with other terpenes and essential oils. Full spectrum extracts also have a small amount of THC present but is always below 0.3% The full spectrum of compounds extracted from hemp work collectively to create an entourage effect which helps gives a wide variety of health benefits.
Broad-spectrum is very similar to Full spectrum. Broad spectrum products contain mostly all the same cannabinoids except for THC. THC is completely removed during the extraction process. Broad Spectrum can give the entourage effect without THC. This is the best solution for those who want to experience the effect of the whole plant but need an alternative to THC.
CBD isolate is the purest form CBD. The process isolates out the CBD cannabinoid. Unlike Full spectrum and Broad Spectrum, where either the whole or majority of the plant's extract is present, Isolate has only the CBD compound present. In this form, all other cannabinoids are removed except for the CBD cannabinoid. Advantages of using CBD isolate products instead of Full spectrum or Broad Spectrum will allow you to enjoy the highest concentration of pure CBD per serving.
How fast does CBD work?
The speed in which CBD products can work for you is dependent on the method of consumption and how it interacts with your Endocannabinoid System.

Will I get High from using CBD products?
CBD is a non-intoxicating component from industrial hemp. This means the Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) level is legally required to be less than 0.3 percent of THC. Full spectrum CBD Oil will have 0.3% THC or less. Due to this extremely low level of THC there is no “high” or euphoric effect as a result of using Hemp CBD. If this is still a worry, Broad Spectrum CBD oil and CBD Isolate contain zero THC.
Will CBD oil show up on a drug test?
While hemp-based CBD products are manufactured from hemp plants containing less than 0.3% THC, there are still trace amounts. There is a small percentage chance that consuming CBD may lead to a positive drug test for THC. If this is still a worry, Broad Spectrum CBD oil and CBD Isolate contain zero THC. We also advise any significant concern regarding this should be discussed with your employer or doctor before using CBD products.
Why are Hemp CBD products sometimes expensive?
We have a lot of customers who have issues with pain who have wasted money on CBD products in the past. After thorough research and surveys from people who have used CBD products, we found one common theme. Most people that didn’t get relief used either a cheap product that didn’t contain enough high quality CBD or they used a low dosage product. We strive to create the highest quality, most effective Hemp CBD products. We don’t want to be known as another brand that was ineffective. We strive to build a reputation for providing quality products for fast relief for whichever purpose you use them.
