In order to comply with the 2014 Farm Bill, CBD Oil and Hemp Extracts must be derived from the mature stalks and seeds of Industrial Hemp Plants. To qualify as Industrial Hemp, the dried plant matter can contain no more than .3% THC. Many products do not use CBD from Certified Industrial Hemp, opting to instead using CBD derived from marijuana. This practice is prohibited but difficult to enforce. Alpha offers health care practitioners and patients peace of mind, we only work with Industrial Hemp which has been imported and cleared by United States Customs. Test results for our Industrial Hemp is available here.

In early 2018 the World Anti Doping Agency(WADA) removed Cannabidiol from its prohibited substance list. Several high level athletes have chosen to work with Alpha Therapeutics because they trust our standards in sourcing. THC remains on the prohibited list, athletes and those subjected to drug screenings must feel confident that they will not test positive for marijuana while receiving the therapeutic benefits of CBD.

COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY

Most CBD distributors make their products available via the internet, but this method provides little to no information to physicians and healthcare professionals who wish to learn more about the benefits of CBD treatment, and how to best prescribe CBD products to patients. We’re committed to providing complete transparency and informative education regarding our CBD products and their prescribed uses.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cannabidiol or CBD is just one of nearly 100 cannabinoids discovered so far in the cannabis plant. CBD is present in more significant quantities in hemp than marijuana, and because it is non-psychoactive, CBD is widely regarded as the cannabinoid with the most medicinal potential by researchers. CBD interacts with the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis. 

We suggest you speak with your health care practitioner regarding how you may benefit from cannabidiol.

Besides CBD, our hemp oil contains other cannabinoids including CBD(a), CBG, CBN, Omega 3 & 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, like iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B, C, and E, and beta-Carotene, often missing from the average diet. Due to this nutritional content, full-spectrum CBD hemp oil can be a complete daily dietary supplement.

Most workplace drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. 

Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products before consulting with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer. 

We have drug tested several patients taking our products and none have tested positive for THC.

High quality raw materials make for high quality finished products. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. All other ingredients are non-gmo and organic when possible. 

From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we lab test our hemp oil to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold. This includes testing the raw hemp and the finished product prior to distribution. 

We also use a supercritical CO2 to extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh chemical solvents. CO2 is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.

In the U.S., CBD derived from hemp is considered a dietary supplement and is legal to purchase and ship across the United States. Our hemp oil is an imported hemp product and contains less than 0.3% THC by weight, it is exempt from the Federal Controlled Substances Act prohibition on marijuana. 

Hemp oil laws become less uniform on a global level. If you’d like to know if CBD hemp oil is legal in your country, contact our customer service team or check with your local authorities.

No. Our products are all made with high-CBD, low-THC hemp oil. CBD itself is non-psychoactive, and THC, marijuana’s psychoactive compound, is only present in trace amounts – not nearly enough to cause the high associated with marijuana.

No. Because our products are dietary supplements, there is no need to obtain a doctor’s recommendation or to live in a medical marijuana state to have our products delivered to your door. 

However, before beginning any new supplement routine, it is suggested you consult your doctor.

This is a difficult question to answer because our customers find differences in their personally optimal serving size. We suggest you start low and ease your way up to larger servings if desired until you find the daily CBD levels that work best for you. 

If you have questions about dosage, we recommend speaking with your health care professional.

Because our CBD hemp oil products are categorized as dietary supplements in the United States, we comply with the FDA’s DSHEA guidelines and cannot endorse any specific medical benefits of CBD or our hemp oil. 

We encourage you to browse the thousands of reputable studies regarding CBD published online and talk with your doctor to see if a CBD supplement is right for you.

This will depend on your own personal preference, desired CBD quantities, and preferred means of application. Typically, CBD products fall under one of two categories: topicals, which are applied externally, or dietary supplements, which are taken internally.

Our hemp comes from Europe grown by farms which have been cultivating hemp for generations. Our hemp comes from Europe because domestic cultivation of hemp for commercial use in the U.S. is illegal, but hemp oil imported from outside the country is legal for use in our entire line of CBD hemp oil products.

Hemp products sold in grocery and health food stores are most often created using hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement. 

Our CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp strains, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.
