Frequently Asked Questions
Cannabis and hemp are both varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Yes, they are the same plant. The difference lies in their cannabinoid profile and effects. Hemp is Cannabis sativa with less than 0.3% THC and typically high percentages of CBD (5-20%). Cannabis or marijuana are terms for Cannabis sativa with more than 0.3% THC and typically lower percentages of CBD.
Cannabidiol better know as CBD, is the most abundant cannabinoid or plant compound found in the hemp plant. CBD interacts with our bodies endocannabinoid system to regulate energy, pleasure and well-being and help maintain bodily homeostasis.
Concentrated hemp extract that preserves beneficial cannabinoids. This includes primarily CBD and always less than 0.3% THC. Instead of isolating a single compound like CBD or THC, full-spectrum allows for the all of the plant’s compounds to work synergistically and provide more benefit within our bodies. Dogwood Botanicals products use only full-spectrum hemp extracts made from hand-harvested hemp flower.
We use full-spectrum hemp instead of isolate because the plant offers more benefits in this closer-to-whole plant form. CBD works synergistically with other cannabinoids such as CBA, CBN and THC to benefit our bodies. Research shows that the combination of these cannabinoids can help us more than just CBD alone.
CBD isolate is often used in products claiming 99.9% CBD or THC-free. In order to create CBD isolate, the other helpful cannabinoids and terpenes are removed. We believe these components should not be removed because they work synergistically within our bodies. We offer only full-spectrum hemp instead of isolated CBD in order to provide the most benefit.
Many studies suggest the effectiveness of CBD for treatment of various conditions and indicate that it is safe and virtually free of side effects. If you are concerned about using CBD with other medications you are taking, we recommend talking to your doctor and reading CBD: A Patient’s Guide to Medicinal Cannabis.

Our hemp is lovingly grown and manufactured on an organic family farm in Loveland, Colorado. Our choice of sourcing in CO is based on the state’s leadership inhume regulation and strict standards for quality and cleanliness. Dogwood works with Elite Botanicals, whose values like organic farming practices (now certified organic!) and clean extraction methods are aligned with our mission of caring for the earth and ethically sharing herbal wisdom with modern folks.
Did you know that choosing organically farmed hemp is one of the most important choices you can make? Hemp naturally cleans the soil through bioremediation, so it can draw up heavy metals and toxins from the soil it is planted in. However, when grown in organic soil the hemp plant will absorb nutrients and beneficial components from the soil rather than harmful materials. This is especially important to consider when you are choosing a concentrated product like hemp extract, because any toxic material present in the oil can be magnified through the extraction process. We firmly support organic farming, clean manufacturing, and employ a rigorous 3rd party testing process to ensure safety and efficacy. You can view test results HERE.
Our products are made with full-spectrum hemp extract. The extract is carefully made from hand-harvested hemp flower that is distilled using food grade ethanol for maximum preservation of cannabinoids and terpenes. This process involves a method called steam distillation that was used in the 10th century to turn rose petals into rose water, the first perfumes. No residual solvents are present after extraction and we ensure this via chemical analysis. View our 3rd party lab test results HERE.

Hemp helps regulate the endocannabinoid system in your body. The endocannabinnoid system helps your body’s response to stress, hormones, inflammation and more. Individual reactions to CBD can vary greatly from person to person. The effects can change based on dose, potency and how it is delivered. Our CBD Drops will work most quickly and most effectively if used sublingually, which means placing the desired amount under your tongue and letting it absorb through the membranes in your mouth for at least 30 seconds before swallowing. Depending on your symptoms, you may find relief within 20 minutes of use or it may take consistent use over several days. Please check out our Hemp Education page HERE to learn more!
