Q: How do I use your hemp oil?

Of course, you could also just take it with your favorite food or drink, and the effects will usually occur within about 40 minutes. This tincture can also be applied topically, directly on the skin, to great effect!

That's the Blue Ribbon Hemp difference. Our premium Broad Spectrum Hemp Products are designed to help you maintain:
• Healthy sleep patterns

Q: How to I get the best results?
Dropper use: Gently squeeze the rubber end and release. The dropper will be half full, which indicates a "full dropper". (Don't worry if the oil doesn't fill the entire dropper, it shouldn't)
• Try to use at the same time every day so your body gets used to it.
• Store in a cool dry place.
• Try not to touch the dropper to your mouth or lips in to avoid contaminating the rest of the bottle. Our products contain no artificial preservatives.

Q: Why is Broad Spectrum Hemp better than Isolate?
The term "entourage effect" gives the connotation that all the work is being done by a prevalent cannabinoid (like THC or cannabidiol), while the other minor cannabinoids and terpenes are there as a sea of relatively insignificant minions. In some cases, this may be true, like when an individual uses a cannabidiol isolate that doesn't have much else going for it. However, there are a staggering variety of chemical phenotypes (chemotypes of cannabis) in the world. Plants that have a rich diversity of cannabinoids and terpenes might fall more into an "ensemble effect" rather than an "entourage effect." Just like an orchestra, each individual instrument contributes to the overall experience of the musical piece. THC might be the conductor, and cannabidiol might be first-chair violin, but each instrument, each different cannabinoid molecule, each terpene, contributes to the overall experience. (Source)
Q: How does hemp even work anyway?
"Cannabis finally goes mainstream with hemp available just about everywhere from gas stations to hemp specialty shops. Why has it become so popular? The answer is simple – hemp acts at a very high level in the body’s regulatory systems. These regulatory systems in turn have cascading effects on all of the biological processes in the body, from digestion, to immunity, to pain, to almost anything you can think of. Thus hemp acts in a holistic way to bring the entire body back to a greater state of health and well being.
To get an appropriate perspective, it's useful to remember that all vertebrates, with humans presumptively being the most evolutionarily advanced member of the group, rely on the endocannabinoid system to homeostatically regulate every human body system (circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, nervous, muscular, reproductive, skeletal, and skin).
Metabolism is what drives all living systems by maintaining the flowing energy that drives the complexity of life. Efficient carbohydrate metabolism drives creation (through activation of cannabinoid receptor 1), while cellular/organ maintenance (repair, recycling, and reconstruction) is driven by fat burning (through activation of cannabinoid receptor 2). The balance of these two metabolic subdivisions determines health and longevity.
