Frequently asked questions
Is all of your hemp organically grown?
Yes, we only partner with farms that use organic farming and curing practices.
Is this legal?
Yes, all of the hemp that we offer is federally legal as it conforms to the rules and regulations of the 2018 Farm Bill. It is also legal for us to ship our products across state lines, even to states that do not allow for hemp to be grown there.
Will consuming your products make me feel “high”?
Most people will not feel a psychoactive effect (the feeling of being "high"), but everybody is different so if it’s your first time trying CBD-rich hemp flower, please make sure to do so in a safe and comfortable place.
Will I pass a drug test after consuming your products?
All of our hemp flower and the hemp in our pre-rolls include very small amounts of THC. While these amounts are quite small there is still the possibility that it will show up on a drug test.
What is the difference between full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and other types of products?
Here at Friend Leaf we believe that hemp is best when it’s pure and unprocessed. The hemp plant naturally contains many healthy and beneficial cannabinoids that when consumed together, create what is called an “entourage effect”, which offers the greatest health benefits from the plant.
Where is your hemp grown?
What is the most bioavailable way to take CBD? Wait, what is bioavailability?
Bioavailability is defined as the degree and the rate at which a substance (in this case the key cannabinoids in hemp) are absorbed into a living system’s bloodstream. By definition, when a medication or supplement is administered intravenously, its bioavailability is 100%. However, when a medication is administered via other routes (such as orally), its bioavailability generally decreases due to incomplete absorption. In the world of hemp products, this is really important and a principle that guides the type of products we offer here at Friend Leaf.
