FAQ

What may work for one person may not for another. If you choose to use one of our products, I would love to hear how it works for you so I may pass it on to others.

Unlike its sister cannabinoid THC, which is felt immediately, this goes to

work in quieter, deeper, and in fact, more meaningful ways for health.

Though we can't make any medical claims regarding any conditions, we've heard very positive results from our customers.

You may also want to look into the H2Revive. It is a hydrogen supplement that is showing to be quite an effective anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.  

 

Irie

a Jamaican term meaning everything is alright, acknowledging the rightness that is always available when we relax and move with the flow of life. It’s more than a name. It’s our way of doing business!

 

Back to dropper tops?

We have used dropper tops for most of our tinctures and blends since the company’s beginning, and switched briefly to pump tops because of customer requests. Unfortunately, the pump tops posed several challenges to our shipping procedures and proved more prone to leaking, wasting our customer’s precious product. Because of this, we have returned to dropper tops. Dosing remains the same as with the previous dropper tops.

 

Dabbing 

IrieCBD’s dab rocks are a powerful way to administer concentrated CBD. Dabbing allows for a quicker absorption of a high dose of CBD into the body’s systems than taking CBD tinctures orally and is often favored by those relying on CBD for support with more intense or chronic conditions.

 

Difference in oil and capsules

Oil is digested through the stomach, you will 'feel' it faster and it has a stronger taste.

Capsules are digested through small intestine, absorbed well but takes longer to 'feel' and is tasteless.

 

Hemp Extract vs CBD

Due to the crazy world we live in and the FDA witch hunts going on around us, we have 'softened' our language - from CBD extract to Hemp extract. The change is also part of an industry wide move towards clarifying that the source of our oils, tinctures and capsules is industrial grade hemp, not marijuana. Our products are made with Full Spectrum Hemp Oil and our products are CBD rich with the full cannabinoid profile needed to insure the Entourage Effect supports CBD’s role in the body.

All of our products are tested and verified by third party labs for potency and CBD content. You can see the CBD content from these test results for every product you buy from us.

 

Do I have to refrigerate the oils?

The shelf life of Irie’s oils unrefrigerated is about a year and a half (unopened). It will last longer if refrigerated (2 years). Opened, the shelf life is about one year. Just do your best to keep your product away from sunlight, extreme heat and other intense conditions. 

 

100% Pure Oil?

Irie Products are hand crafted using pure, raw materials. The extracts produced are formulated in the USA and tested by independent 3rd party USA Labs to ensure they are of the highest standard through every step in the extraction process. These extracts are made from Hemp plants that were farmed without the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides. The resulting product is pure Hemp Extract (CBD). It is then combined with other natural ingredients to potentate and magnify different healing properties. 

 

CO2 Extraction

We us a CO2 extraction method. CO2 extraction is a high pressure method of disrupting the cell walls of the plant material and extracting the rich material contained within, including the wide array of cannabinoids. This method is the cleanest way to extract the cannabinoids from hemp.  There are other methods of extraction, including Butane or Hexane based extraction, as well as the Rick Simpson Oil method. All these methods use solvents which have varying degrees of toxicity and can leave residuals in the final product. At IrieCBD we believe in making the cleanest product possible, and CO2 extraction insures no toxic residue is left in any of our concentrates of oils.

 

Dosing

One of the things about the use of plants to support proper functioning is that 'dosing' often doesn't need to be as exact as with medications. However, over time you will probably find the optimum amount that supports you the best. The amount of Hemp Extract Oil that people take on a daily basis can vary and to some a therapeutic dose is smaller, and others more.

I recommend starting with a very low amount, maybe just a drop or two per day and increase each day until you find the amount that works best. The cannabinoids in hemp extract, particularly the CBD, have a positive modulating effect on the nervous system.  It can affect how the nervous system functions but those changes need to be a pace that the person can handle. Starting low and working up with the amount can often assist a person in being successful with the changes that can happen.

However, we strongly encourage customers to do their own research on CBD doses for their own unique health needs.

You can take it with or without food - the optimal way to consume is to hold it under the tongue for 30 seconds or longer before swallowing.

 

How many mgs in each drop?

Approximately 600 drops per bottle

250 mg - .419 mgs in each drop – 8 mgs in a dropper full

500 mg - .84 mgs in each drop – 16 mgs in a dropper full

1000 mg - 1.68 mgs in each drop - 32 mgs in a dropper full

CW 1500 mg tincture - 2.5 mg in each drop

Concentration divided by # of drops per bottle = mg per drop

 

Whole plant?

Irie products are made from flower and trim; a mixture of leaves, stems, and flowers.

 

Amazon

Irie Hemp products are made with a legally sourced full spectrum industrial hemp extract and we can make no claims regarding the constituents of the hemp. These products were made specifically to adhere to the rules set forth by Amazon and Google, which we carefully adhere to. If you’re specifically looking for a CBD supplement, I would recommend visiting iriecbd.com where you will find a full line of premium CBD products.

 

Why different sites and company names/labels?

Irie Hemp Company manufactures several lines of hemp-based products and other nutritional products and brands.

Best CBD Oil Online is where Irie collaborates with and markets excellent hemp infused oil brands.

 

What are the shipping costs?

Shipping is auto calculated at checkout via USPS rates based on your address and choice of speed.

 

Do you ship to?

We haven’t delivered yet to      , but have to most other places in the world.

The only note I would say, is we use the US Post Office (USPS) so when ordering you will receive an estimated delivery date, but when going to other countries there’s no way to tell how long customs might hold, etc., and it may take a little time. Each country has their own rules and regulations and taxes related to the import of products into that country. I would double check to ensure that products ordered for international delivery meet the requirements for import into your country, as well as any import taxes and duties that MAY be incurred.

 

How do I give this to a person that is on meds?

Treat our CBD products as a dietary supplement. A number of factors should be considered whenever mixing a dietary supplement with medications. It is always important to check with your doctor. 

 

Can I use this to wean from my medication?

We are each so different, it is a hard question to answer.  We have customers who have used CBD to wean from both opioids, anti-anxiety medications, and anti-depressants. We don't know intimate details of their journeys, just that they have told us of their success.  To be fair for some it was 'cold turkey', an immediate discontinuation using CBD, and for others it was a more gradual weaning process. And there are others who are still in the process and/or not able to make the switch.  

Wish we could be more concrete here, but just not possible ...

 

How will CBD make me feel?

Everyone responds to cannabinoids differently, and in different timing. Unlike its sister cannabinoid THC, which is felt immediately, this goes to work in quieter, deeper, and in fact, more meaningful ways for health.

 

How does it work?

CBD works by supporting a part of your body called the endocannabinoid System. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is one of modern science’s newest and most revelatory discoveries, and is key in maintaining health in the human body. The ECS regulates relaxation, eating, sleeping, certain inflammation responses and even cognitive function, and functions by using naturally occurring cannabinoids to communicate. There are two types of cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body (CB1 and CB2), but they are most abundant in the brain and immune system respectively.  In a nutshell, your ECS is responsible for making sure your entire body is working optimally—no small task!

Think of it as a natural way to push the reset button on both the nervous system and the immune system, pulling these natural bodily systems out of abnormal patterns and stress responses. CBD can support the return to normal cell communication, and help the body to remain in its natural healthy state (homeostasis). It is also a neuroprotectant and helps guard against the aging of cells from oxidation.

 

What is MCT?

“MCTs” are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that has numerous health benefits, ranging from improved cognitive function to better weight management. Coconut oil is one great source of MCTs

 

Is CBD oil cannabis oil? THC?

Our products are hemp derived. Hemp is the heirloom variety of cannabis.  It is the unadulterated strain of the cannabis sativa plant.  The cannabinoid and phytonutrient makeup in the hemp plant are closest to the ratios found in the naturally occurring industrial hemp strains, that are high in CBD and low in THC. What is commonly referred to as ‘Marijuana’ are strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant that have been bred to be high in THC and low in CBD.  Both are varieties of the Cannabis Sativa plant.  It is selective breeding and growing conditions that differentiate these two strains.

Our products contain trace amounts of THC, to the point where it’s not intoxicating, and meets requirements as hemp, but is still full spectrum cannabinoids and terpenes. We prefer full spectrum (whole plant) extract because of the other wonderful cannabinoids (CBG, CBC, CBN) and terpenes you get with CBD.

Cannabinoids are rare in nature.  Even though all animals, including humans, internally create small amounts of cannabinoids, there are few other places in nature where they can be found in abundance.  Hemp is by far the richest source for a wide range of cannabinoid substances.  It is a unique plant that has been shown to have unprecedented healing properties.

 

What’s Full Spectrum Hemp Oil?

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is an extracted oil made from industrial grade hemp that contains all the naturally occurring cannabinoids (including CBD), terpenes, flavonoids, phytonutrients and fatty acids found in whole plant hemp material.

 

What is the Entourage Effect?

The entourage effect refers to how various cannabinoids and other natural constituents work together synergistically to magnify their potential therapeutic properties. By working together synergistically, the whole plant extract of cannabinoids and other natural constituents are able to affect multiple targets throughout the body.

 

Does your oil have a high to it?

Our extract is a whole plant hemp extract meaning it contains all the cannabinoids in the natural amounts. You won’t experience a high with our products. However, you may feel the effects of CBD which contains nearly 70% of the medicinal value in cannabis - Look here: https://www.coloradopotguide.com/images/blog/Health-Effects-of-Marijuana-Reduced.png

 

Do we need a medical marijuana card to purchase these products?

No, you don’t :)

Our products are derived from industrial hemp, so no license is required.

 

Are your products legal?

 

We ship all over the United States and the World daily. Our hemp has well under the legal limit of THC and is grown legally under an industrial hemp license.

 

  • The Ninth Circuit makes clear that the DEA’s Rule does not apply to hemp or hemp-derived products developed under state pilot programs authorized by the 2014 Farm Bill. 

 

  • During the litigation process, the DEA admitted that the marijuana extract rule did not apply to hemp.  In a key legal brief, the DEA admitted that the Rule “does not apply to any substance that the CSA did not previously control as ‘marijuana.’ 

  • The DEA’s “marijuana extract rule” does not apply to hemp or derivative products such as hemp-derived CBD.  Period.  And the U.S. Hemp Roundtable stands ready to defend that principle if ever the DEA tries to interfere with state pilot programs

 

DEA

The DEA Scheduling CBD as a schedule 1, is an 'administrative measure not an enforcement measure.' From a legal source. 

The DEA cannot create law, it can only enforce laws. In 2016, Congress specifically stripped the DEA'S ability to enforce legally cultivated hemp. Only Congress can create laws and they did clarify the laws defining hemp and derivatives of hemp (ie, extracts) as detailed in the 2014 Farm Bill and the Omnibus Bill. 

 

What is the max I can take?

You can take quite a bit if needed, though I would try the recommended dosage to begin and give you a gauge for how cannabinoids effect your system. Cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system in the brain, which controls the body’s homeostasis, so do that for a couple of days and then adjust as needed. We have people with severe conditions taking much more than the recommended dosage.

Keep in mind, CBD is an anti-inflammatory with full entourage effect. Unlike its sister cannabinoid THC, which is felt immediately, this goes to work in quieter, deeper, and in fact, more meaningful ways for health.

 

Will I test positive for a drug test?

Our products contain trace amounts of THC, to the point where it’s not intoxicating, and meets requirements as hemp, but is still full spectrum cannabinoids and terpenes. We prefer full spectrum (whole plant) extract because of the other wonderful cannabinoids (CBG, CBC, CBN) and terpenes you get with CBD. There are different ways that companies test for drugs.  Some drug tests are specific for THC and some are broader and test for all cannabinoids.  It is best to check with your workplace/doctor. etc prior to starting a product with cannabinoids.  

 

Is cbd oil safe for kids?

I am not qualified to say whether it is safe for your child. If you’re concerned, I would ask a health care practitioner knowledgeable of your child’s health and do your own research.

I have never seen research that shows it is not safe for children, but again, this is an informed decision you have to make.

If you decide you would like to try CBD for your child, I recommend our Kids Blend because it is flavored and sweet so much easier to get kids to take it.

 

Anxiety

Though we cannot make any medical claims, I want you to consider our Calm tincture. Calm is blended with hemp extract (CBD), lavender, and peppermint. Hemp Extract is proving to be the reset button for feelings of anxiety while lavender promotes relaxation and peppermint promotes mental focus and clarity. 

 

Glaucoma?

While we can't make any claims regarding specific medical conditions, I have seen that extracts that are high in THC have shown promise regarding glaucoma. Our extracts are predominantly CBD which is wonderfully therapeutic, but I don't know if it lowers the pressure within the eye. 

If you would like to try one of the extracts and see how it works, I would suggest either the Daily or Balance blends. Balance contains four different adaptogenic herbs which help the body by increasing resiliency and adaptability and lowering the need for the stress response.

 

Pain/Arthritis

While I can't make any claims with our products regarding specific conditions, I will say that our Pain tincture is the product that I would use if I were you. Pain is blended with sustainably farmed Full Spectrum Hemp Extract (CBD), MCT Oil, Devil’s Claw, Skullcap, Curcumin and Sunflower Lecithin. This combination of ingredients is specifically designed to decrease inflammation, ease pain, and promote comfort.

As well as, CBD Pain Cream with Celadrin. Celadrin decreases inflammation and lubricates cell membranes throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion the bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility.

Lastly, H2Revive. H2Revive is a hydrogen supplement that lowers inflammation by the formation of hydrogen in the body.  It is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant. It provides cells with high concentrations of Molecular hydrogen, Plant-Derived Bio-Active Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, and 72 other trace marine minerals that work in harmony to stimulate antioxidant power in your cells and support bone, joint, and digestive health.

However all of our CBD products can help with inflammation, which can potentially help with pain.    

 

OR

If you'd like to consider a topical, I would recommend our CBD Pain Cream with Celadrin. Many people are enjoying the relief that they are experiencing.  Of course, a topical is best suited for local pain. Celadrin decreases inflammation and lubricates cell membranes throughout the body, restoring fluids that cushion the bones and joints to promote flexibility and mobility.

However all of our CBD products can help with inflammation, which can potentially help with pain.    

 

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

We can’t make claims, but I can say that a lot of people are reporting excellent results with the use of CBD. I do know that most people are using a tincture with good results, but we have some people that are combining it with vaping and telling us that they really notice a difference when they combine the two. Vaping is the fastest way to get the cannabinoids into the body and it bypasses the liver.

 

Crohn's Disease?

While we can't make claims for our products regarding any specific medical conditions, I can say that a lot of people are using CBD for severe GI issues with exceptional results. I suggest our Balance tincture, as well as H2Revive. Balance contains four different adaptogenic herbs which help the body by increasing resiliency and adaptability and lowering the need for the stress response. H2Revive is a hydrogen supplement that lowers inflammation by the formation of hydrogen in the body.  It is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant. It provides cells with high concentrations of Molecular hydrogen, Plant-Derived Bio-Active Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, and 72 other trace marine minerals that work in harmony to stimulate antioxidant power in your cells and support bone, joint, and digestive health.

 

Autism?

While we can't make claims for our products regarding any specific medical conditions, our Daily tincture is what I would recommend.  Some people with autism are very sensitive and they may need a lot less than the suggested serving.  I would recommend starting with a very low amount, maybe just a drop or two per day and increase each day until you find the amount that works best. The cannabinoids in hemp extract, particularly the CBD, have a positive modulating effect on the nervous system.  It can affect how the nervous system functions but those changes need to be a pace that the person can handle. Starting low and working up with the amount can often assist a person in being successful with the changes that can happen.

If I might suggest one other thing, I’ve read some very interesting things about molecular hydrogen and autism. You may want to read up on it, and if you’d like to try that, we have a CBD / H2 Revive combination product here:

Does it cure cancer?

That’s a big question, one I don’t have credentials to answer. And if I did, it would still be difficult to answer given the many different types, stages, and other issues surrounding cancer. I would do your own research and decide if it’s right for you. There is lots of great information out there. I usually look here to begin

https://www.projectcbd.org/condition/16/Cancer

 

Cancer

Though we can’t make any medical claims, I would recommend CBD Lifeline as a supplemental intake. You may need to use quite a bit more than the suggested amount. In addition to the CBD and other cannabinoids it has the essential oils of Frankincense, Ginger and Sandalwood.  All three of these oils add to the therapeutic value of the whole and potentially have great cancer fighting benefits alone. We also have a Lifeline 2x, Lifeline Maximum. It is all the strength and beauty of the original Lifeline with added Nigella Sativa, Cat’s Claw and Sangre de Grado. As well as 2xs the CBD per oz. This is an antiseptic, immune boosting and inflammation fighting combination. These power packed ingredients potentiate the support to the Endocannabinoid System provided by our pure CBD oil, and deliver critical cell support on the most fundamental level. 

As well as H2Revive. H2Revive is a hydrogen supplement that lowers inflammation by the formation of hydrogen in the body.  It is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant. It provides cells with high concentrations of Molecular hydrogen, Plant-Derived Bio-Active Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, and 72 other trace marine minerals that work in harmony to stimulate antioxidant power in your cells and support bone, joint, and digestive health.

 

COPD/Emphysema

I can't make claims regarding our products effectiveness with any specific medical conditions. However, I can say that a lot of people are reporting that vaping is helping them. It seems counter intuitive and I would have hardly believed it but we have many people reporting that it is helping. 

You may also want to look into the H2Revive.  It is a hydrogen supplement that is showing to be quite effective anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.  

Here is an article that may be of interest.  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3108576/

 

Migraine?

We make no medical claims regarding the products we produce and sell.   Having said that, I would recommend our Daily tincture. I would suggest taking it daily, starting low and slowing building up.  Many people are saying that when they have a migraine if they take it as soon as they feel it coming on their migraine can be avoided or greatly reduced in intensity. 

                                                                                                   

Diabetes 

While we can't make claims regarding any specific conditions I can tell you what I would recommend. With that being said, I would recommend our Daily blend.

Here is a link to some research on CBD and diabetes.

https://www.projectcbd.org/diabetes

As well as H2Revive. H2Revive is a hydrogen supplement that lowers inflammation by the formation of hydrogen in the body.  It is a powerful anti-inflammatory as well as anti-oxidant. It provides cells with high concentrations of Molecular hydrogen, Plant-Derived Bio-Active Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, and 72 other trace marine minerals that work in harmony to stimulate antioxidant power in your cells and support bone, joint, and digestive health. Studies also suggest the potential benefit of molecular hydrogen in improving obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

 

Psoriasis

A lot of people are reporting good results using CBD for psoriasis.  CBD helps calm the immune system and can help with autoimmune conditions as well as inflammation. I am hearing back that people are using the tincture internally as well as using it topically and both are helping. I suggest our Daily blend. 

 

Dementia

There are many studies on Alzheimer’s Disease and therapeutic effects of CBD. Here is a good link with some helpful info on this topic.

https://www.projectcbd.org/alzheimers-disease

Though we cannot make any medical claims, I would recommend our Balance Blend. Balance is blended with 4 adaptogenic herbs, Ashwaganda being one of them.  Ashwaganda is an herb that has remarkable stress relieving properties. Some early studies indicate that it supports people with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It has neuro-protective properties (may result in salvage, recovery or regeneration of the nervous system, its cells, structure and function), similar to CBD, which enhance the bodies resilience against stress, environmental toxins and oxidation. In a recent study, Ashwaganda was shown to lower cortisol levels up to 26% and lower blood sugar levels. The participants reported better energy, less fatigue, enhanced sleep and overall sense of well-being. Another study showed the herb reduced the neural degeneration on stressed animals by 80%.   

 

Parkinson’s

There are many studies on Parkinson’s and therapeutic effects of CBD.

Here is a good link with some helpful info on this topic.

http://www.leafscience.com/2014/09/26/cannabidiol-may-help-parkinsons-disease/

Adaptogenic herbs help the body by increasing resiliency and adaptability and lowering the need for the stress response.

 

Serious Illness

Though we can’t make any medical claims, I would recommend CBD Lifeline as a supplemental intake. Lifeline is what it says it is. For many people this will be their choice when they are dealing with the most serious conditions. This can include many different expressions of health challenges. You may need to use quite a bit more than the suggested amount. In addition to the CBD and other cannabinoids it has the essential oils of Frankincense, Ginger and Sandalwood.  All three of these oils add to the therapeutic value of the whole. We also have a Lifeline 2x, Lifeline Maximum. It is all the strength and beauty of the original Lifeline with added Nigella Sativa, Cat’s Claw and Sangre de Grado. As well as 2xs the CBD per oz. This is an antiseptic, immune boosting and inflammation fighting combination. These power packed ingredients potentiate the support to the Endocannabinoid System provided by our pure CBD oil, and deliver critical cell support on the most fundamental level. 

 

Lyme

Though we cannot make any claims, I recommend Lifeline. Lifeline is a CBD Oil blend specifically designed for cellular health and to enhance the anti-inflammatory properties of hemp with frankincense, ginger, and sandalwood essential oils. We also have a Lifeline 2x, Lifeline Maximum. It is all the strength and beauty of the original Lifeline with added Nigella Sativa, Cat’s Claw and Sangre de Grado. As well as 2xs the CBD per oz. This is an antiseptic, immune boosting and inflammation fighting combination. These power packed ingredients potentiate the support to the Endocannabinoid System provided by our pure CBD oil, and deliver critical cell support on the most fundamental level. 

I would also suggest our H2 Revive - Molecular Hydrogen supplement. Hydrogen is another amazing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and for cellular health.

 

CF?

Though we can’t make any medical claims, I would recommend CBD Lifeline 2x as a supplemental intake. Lifeline is what it says it is. For many people this will be their choice when they are dealing with the most serious conditions. This can include many different expressions of health challenges. You may need to use quite a bit more than the suggested amount. In addition to 2x's the CBD per oz and other cannabinoids it has the essential oils of Frankincense, Ginger, Sandalwood, Nigella Sativa, Cat’s Claw and Sangre de Grado. I recommend this because of the expectorant properties of the Sandalwood, and antiseptic, disinfectant and astringent properties of the Frankincense. Nigella Sativa is used for respiratory conditions including asthma, allergies, cough, bronchitis, emphysema, flu, swine flu, and congestion. Cats Claw has amazing anti-inflammatory and immune system stimulating properties. And lastly, Blood of the dragons antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory effects. 

 

Sleep?

First I have to say my disclaimer- We make no medical claims regarding the products we produce and sell. Having said that, I want you to consider our Calm Blend.

Calm is blended with Lavender and Peppermint. Peppermint and Lavender potentiate the healing power of CBD. We believe this blend to be the perfect choice for those looking for that little extra. Lavender considered the 'Mother of Essential Oils' has many therapeutic qualities. Calming, stress reducing, sleep enhancing are all reputed qualities of Lavender. Linalool, one of the primary constituents of Lavender has shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and possible anti-cancer activity. 

One of the things about the use of plants to support proper functioning is that 'dosing' often doesn't need to be as exact as with medications. However, over time you will probably find the optimum amount that supports you the best. The amount of Hemp Extract Oil that people take on a daily basis can vary and to some a therapeutic dose is smaller, and others more. I recommend starting with a very low amount, maybe just a drop or two per day and increase each day until you find the amount that works best. You can take it with or without food - the optimal way to consume is to hold it under the tongue for 30 seconds or longer before swallowing. I would do this an hour or so before bed. 

 

Pets?        

We can’t make claim, but I suggest our Pet’s Blend.  It is a premium CBD blend with Astaxanthin and Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Cod Liver Oil provides fat-soluble vitamins A and D, as well as omega 3 fatty acids in a bio-available format. This tincture is designed to keep fur shiny and tails wagging. Astaxanthin, a naturally occurring carotenoid found in certain marine plants and animals, is one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. It reduces free radicals in the body, protecting cells from oxidation and supporting healthy joints and ligaments. We recommend you start with 1 - 2 drops per 10 pounds of body weight and move up from there as needed and based on your dogs reactions. 

 

Pets and Calm or Other Therapeutic Blends?

Our therapeutic blends were not formulated for dogs, but feel free to do your own research.  We can’t make claims, but I suggest our Pet’s Blend. It is a premium CBD blend with Astaxanthin and Fermented Cod Liver Oil. CBD works by supporting a part of the body called the endocannabinoid System. This part of the body protects and resets the nervous system when it gets out of balance. It also helps modulate the immune system supporting it out of inflammatory patterns.  Cod Liver Oil provides fat-soluble vitamins A and D, as well as omega 3 fatty acids in a bio-available format. This tincture is designed to keep fur shiny and tails wagging. Astaxanthin, a naturally occurring carotenoid found in certain marine plants and animals, is one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature. It reduces free radicals in the body, protecting cells from oxidation and supporting healthy joints and ligaments. We recommend you start with 1 - 2 drops per 10 pounds of body weight and move up from there as needed and based on your dogs reactions. 

 

Why Added Stuff?

Many use a base oil such as Coconut, Hemp Seed or MCT. It makes for a better absorption rate, taste and pour. We combine that with other natural ingredients to potentate and magnify different healing properties. 

 

Epilepsy

Though we cannot make any medical claims, I suggest Balance Blend. Balance is blended with 4 adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens improve the entire body’s resistance to stress, not just one particular system or organ, regardless of where the disruption may originate. In other words, an adaptogen works like a tuning fork on your body: It helps bring your system back into harmony after a day of discord.   

Balance blend is a powerful tincture combining the cutting-edge science of Adaptogenic herbs with the known health benefits of pure hemp CBD extract. Adaptogens are natural compounds that assist the body in managing stress, keeping cortisol levels low and protecting the adrenal system. Used for centuries in Chinese and Auyervedic traditions, adaptogens support the body in returning to balance and homeostasis when faced with a stress response, which can improve and support overall immune health, brain clarity, memory, healthy hormone levels, energy levels and cellular oxygen use.  

I recommend starting with a very low amount, maybe just a drop or two per day and increase each day until you find the amount that works best. The cannabinoids in hemp extract particularly the CBD have a positive modulating effect on the nervous system.  It can affect how the nervous system functions but those changes need to be a pace that the person can handle.  Starting low and working up with the amount can often assist a person in being successful with the changes that can happen. 

 

Stress/Depression

Though we cannot make any medical claims, if it were me, I would be using our Balance tincture. Balance is blended with 4 adaptogenic herbs. Adaptogens improve the entire body’s resistance to stress, not just one particular system or organ, regardless of where the disruption may originate. In other words, an adaptogen works like a tuning fork on your body: It helps bring your system back into harmony after a day of discord.

Ashwaganda is an herb that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It has remarkable stress relieving properties and is showing comparable positive results to many powerful anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications. Some early studies indicate that it supports people with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. It has neuro-protective properties (may result in salvage, recovery or regeneration of the nervous system), in its cells, structure and function, similar to CBD, which enhance the bodies resilience against stress, environmental toxins and oxidation. In a recent study, Ashwaganda was shown to lower cortisol levels up to 26% and lower blood sugar levels. The participants reported better energy, less fatigue, enhanced sleep and overall sense of well-being. Another study showed the herb reduced the neural degeneration on stressed animals by 80%.   

Holy Basil is another herb with a long history of therapeutic use. It is a powerful herb with anti-inflammatory properties as well as being anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It has been used to treat many different conditions including bronchitis, fever, digestive problems but its most common usage is to reduce stress. It is an adaptogenic and that title carries a special place in the healing world. Reducing stress and promoting well-being is the number one thing that most people can use to optimize their health and protect their greatest asset.

 

CBD and Appetite

While we can't make any claims with our products regarding specific conditions, CBD has been known to stimulate appetite, according to the National Cancer Institute. They state that in the human body, CBD binds to cannabinoid receptors that play an important role in regulating feeding behavior. The CBD stimulates appetite when they dock onto these receptors.

It's also true that what may work for one person may not for another.  If you choose to use one of our products, I would love to hear how it works for you so I may pass it on to others.

Having said that, I would recommend trying our Daily blend.

 

CBD for Cooking

We currently do not carry any CBD oils specifically meant for cooking, but our CBD coconut sticks would be a great alternative to this.

 

ADD/ADHD

While we can't make any medical claims regarding any conditions, I can tell you what I would recommend for a loved one.

Our Calm formula is blended with Lavender and Peppermint. Peppermint and Lavender potentiate the healing power of CBD. We believe this blend to be the perfect choice for those looking for that little extra. Lavender considered the 'Mother of Essential Oils' has many therapeutic qualities. Calming, stress reducing, sleep enhancing are all reputed qualities of Lavender. Linalool, one of the primary constituents of Lavender has shown to have anti-inflammatory properties and possible anti-cancer activity. While peppermint promotes mental focus and clarity. 

We also offer a Kids Blend formula. Our children's blend is a great way to get the benefits of a true hemp extract without the struggle with the taste.  

 

Where is my order – International

Your package is currently in transit.

We are so sorry, but we have no control over the customs process. When we see it released from one area in and held in the next, this usually means that it is progressing toward the recipient.  

What happens when we ship internationally is that there is a 'dark' period in tracking once the package leaves the US until it gets to Customs in the receiving country. I suspect that is where your package is just now. This is not an uncommon time period for shipment overseas.

 

Side Effects?

Naturally derived CBD from whole plant hemp matter has a remarkable safety profile with no known side effects.

There have been thousands of studies published on CBD by the National Institute of Health, and we encourage customers to do their own research within this database and from any other sources you trust.

 

Refunds?

At Irie Hemp Company we want you to get exactly what you want and need.  If, for any reason, you are not pleased with the product, you may get a full refund upon return of any unopened products.

UK?

We use an EU credit card processor. Being a CBD and Hemp based businesses, finding a payment processor can be difficult due to its high risk nature and the fact that many payment processors don't want to process payments for it - mainly due to reputational reasons. Protecting Our Right to Fair Access Will Take Us All. IrieCBD is a company based on values: two of our most dearly held ones are community and self-determination when it comes to health. We believe everyone has a right to choose the health options right for them. It is going to take a community to protect that right.

Declined?

We use an EU processor, so approximately 5% of the time, your bank may block the charge, in which case, you would have to call them to approve the charge and then re-order. We apologize for any inconveniences.

Eruption prone

Slight tingling may occur. If redness or burning occurs, discontinue use or dilute with 2-3 drops of a carrier oil before applying. Perform a patch test if using retinol or other topical medications. Best used as a spot treatment.  

Eruption Prone is best used as a spot treatment and not a full-face serum. I suggest blending it with a carrier oil, like grapeseed. Studies suggest that grapeseed oil can help promote healthy skin on a cellular level because it contains vitamin E, beta-carotene, and linoleic acid. It may even help fight off acne-causing bacteria.
