Ingredients are important to us. That's why all our products are made with Organically grown hemp from local Colorado farmers. Our oils are created using only the finest ingredients. It's our belief that if we provide good, clean products, you'll be able to get the most out of what you buy.
Broad-spectrum Hemp Oil goes through an extra step to remove THC from the raw oil – while keeping all the other cannabinoids intact. As much as we'd like to say our Broad-Spectrum is 100% THC Free, there are variables that prevent us from making such a claim. However, the THC levels in our products are reduced significantly. Check out our THC-Free Broad-Spectrum products here!
Full-Spectrum Hemp refers to the amount of the hemp plant that is extracted. "Full-Spectrum" means we capture all of the plants naturally occurring cannabinoids - which gives you access to the Full-Spectrum of beneficial cannabinoids found in hemp. Interested in our Full-Spectrum products?
Our Full-Spectrum products to contain small amounts of THC; however it is under the legal limit allowed by law. Which means you won't feel any psychotropic or "High" effects.
There are over 100 unique cannabinoids in the hemp plant. When extracting the oil, our goal is to keep as many of these cannabinoids as possible. The extracted oil with all cannibinoids is called 'Full-Spectrum' hemp products, because it has the full spectrum of cannabinoids and benefits. While THC has obvious therapeutic value, drug screens and possible psychoactive effects limit the utilization of full spectrum products, especially in states where THC remains illegal.
To adhere to regulatory matters while maintaining as much of the integrity of the hemp plant as possible, we created a unique, proprietary extract called 'Broad-Spectrum'. This starts as Full-Spectrum – but is further distilled to remove THC, leaving a beautiful golden distillate that still contains a plethora of therapeutic cannabinoids from the hemp plant.
CBD Isolate simply refers to cannabidiol, or CBD, with no other cannabinoids.
Ethanol extractions are our preferred method because ethanol is a very gentle solvent that has the capabilities of pulling the most hemp components (cannabinoids and other compounds) out of the flower.
The other options are hydrocarbon based--butane and propane typically, which we don't utilize as trace amounts are usually still in the CBD isolate after extraction. This is what 'residual solvents' are and what we stay away from.
We take our crude extractions a step further by using a cold ethanol extraction approach, which means we don't subject the plant material to the pressures or temperatures seen even in other ethanol extractions. This allows us to minimize any degradation of the compounds we are extracting from hemp, making our method of extraction the most holistic in terms of the amount of compounds we can extract from the hemp flower.
We do! Named after one of our employee's beloved French Bulldog, we created Emmitt's Pet Hemp. Works great for dogs, cats and other household pets. If you've got a question regarding whether or not Emmitt's Pet Hemp is good for your pet, give us a shout!
We do not put Vitamin D3 in all our products. A quick and simple guide is that all our Broad-Spectrum tinctures and capsules include 1000IU of Vitamin D3.
Products that DO NOT contain Vitamin D3 are:
We do this for a couple reasons. The first being, it just made sense. If we were going to preach this notion of spreading Sunshine, we should actually provide some of the great things the sun has to offer. But rest assure, it's not just a marketing stunt, because most people don't get the proper amount of Vitamin D3. It's pretty important, so if we are really going to help people, we need to make sure we are adding things that can actually help. Find out more here!
While all our products contain roughly the same ingredients and extracts, each product has it's own benefits. It's important to understand which product is right for you, that's why we created a comparison chart to help you know which products work the fastest, last the longest and absorb more into your body. You can check out the Comparison Chart right here.
Great question. For our line of Sunshine products, we've set out to create unique blends and recipes that aim to help people in as many ways as possible. From hemp to essential oils, we try to create blends intended to make a difference.
We also make it a priority to push innovation. With a team of scientists on our side, we're constantly looking for new, effective ways to help people feel the effects. Whether that's with our smooth tasting tinctures, proprietary Water Soluble solution, or other soon-to-be-released innovations, we're always looking to bring you the latest and greatest product offerings.
The short answer is no. The FDA does not recognize the health benefits associated with Hemp Extract. However, the World Health Organization has recently come out to say that CBD (and Hemp Extract) pose no threat to public safety or potential for abuse.
In addition, there are plenty of people who will tell you just how much it works for them.
Dosages can be tricky as no two people have the same exact body and brain chemistry makeup. We suggest to always look at the suggested dosage on the products you buy. And if you're in doubt, start small.

No. Because of our unique extraction method, we're able to remove THC from the oil, so you won't feel any effects. Of course, Hemp has pretty low levels of THC to begin with, so odds are you wouldn't feel the effects anyway; but why risk it. Learn more about our Broad-Spectrum here.
