Frequently asked questions

What is CBD?


CBD is a naturally occuring component in the hemp plant. It is a non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid that offers a range of whole-body uses. CBD is just one of many phyto-cannabinoids and other phyto-chemicals found in hemp.




What is CBD oil?


CBD oil is derived from hemp plants that have high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of THC (THC - the chemicle that creates a "high"). CBD content of CBD oil can vary tremendously across different vendors due to the varying quality of hemp that's used, as well as varying preparation and extraction techniques. Maple Ledge Organics produces some of the market's finest quality CBD oil, extracted from organic, healthy, CBD-rich hemp plants grown right here in the USA.




Where should I store my CBD oil? What is its shelf life?


For the best shelf life, store the bottle/s in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight, with low humidity. This will help preserve the properties of the hemp extract. If properly stored CBD could have up to a 1 year shelf life.




Can CBD make me high?


No. All of our hemp extract products are made from industrial hemp with THC levels below 0.3%. You will not get that "high" effect from taking our products.
