Full spectrum hemp CBD oil is the pure oil extracted from hemp, which is bursting with natural cannabinoids and phytonutrients. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full spectrum hemp CBD oil contains an array of cannabinoids, as well as many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, flavonoids, and terpenes. These compounds have been proven to work synergistically - meaning they are more effective when presented together, as opposed to isolated or purified molecules.
Many people are concerned that CBD may cause effects related to marijuana (or THC) use. Fortunately, there is no need for worry as full spectrum CBD oil is procured from hemp that contains less than .3% THC (trace levels that will not cause intoxication). However, we believe that this small amount of THC works synergistically with the other nutrients found in full-spectrum hemp CBD oil - and this belief is supported by scientific research.
To quote a report published by the World Health Organization, “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.” The article goes on to say, “several countries have modified their national controls to accommodate CBD as a medicinal product. To date, there is no evidence of recreational use of CBD or any public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
Oftentimes companies will confuse these two terms, either intentionally for marketing purposes, or unintentionally due to the fact that CBD is a relatively new industry.
Hemp oil (also known as hemp seed oil) is pressed from hemp seeds, resulting in a nutrient rich oil full of essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, and various other nutrients. Many experts agree that hemp seed oil is the ideal carrier oil for CBD - which is why we use it in our full line of premium CBD products.
CBD oil is pressed directly from the flower of the hemp plant (and in some cases the stalk and stems, which has little cannabinoid content). More often than not CBD oil refers to a blend of cannabinoids and terpenes (obtained via an extraction process on the hemp) carried in an oil (such as hemp oil).
Hemp and marijuana are both Cannabis. Cannabis Sativa L. is simply the botanical name for the plant, of which hemp and marijuana are two different types.
Hemp is known to have higher amounts of cannabinoids, such as CBD, CBG, CBN etc. and lower amounts of THC. Whereas marijuana has been bred over time to have higher amounts of THC and small amounts of other beneficial cannabinoids.
CBD products made from marijuana remain federally illegal; whereas the hemp that we use in our products is federally legal.
Our products contain less than .3% THC. However, because of the fat-soluble nature of THC and other cannabinoids, accumulation may reach levels that can be detected by a routine drug test.
There are many variables, such as individual genetics, lifestyle, and metabolism that make it difficult to know if you will pass a drug test. If you are concerned with passing a drug test, we do not recommend using any of our products.

Ananda Hemp is proud to be 100% Non-GMO and gluten-free, and all of our CBD oils/tinctures are completely vegan.
Absolutely! We make it simple for anyone to purchase CBD from our website - simply select your products and proceed to checkout.
We believe you deserve to know exactly what’s in your supplements—and what’s not. At Ananda Hemp, every ingredient and finished product is tested by third party, ISO certified laboratories to ensure Quality, Purity, and Potency.
Our mission is to bring our customers the absolute highest standard of care in the hemp industry. To do this, transparency is key.
We source all of our CBD rich extract directly from the Kentucky farmers we stand side-by-side with in the field and, in fact, you can see the exact lot # of raw extract material that was processed in our extraction facility on the batch record located at the top portion of your product COA.
Additionally, that same batch record will also contain a list of every ingredient that is in your product as well as its supplier, and its unique lot identification number all of which are tested rigorously before production completion.
By the time you’ve purchased your product it has undergone 18 points of testing and inspection.
Once you’ve entered your batch ID number, the first thing you will see is your batch cover sheet. This will confirm the date in which your product was manufactured and list every single ingredient in your product as well as the manufacturers of these ingredients.
With the Batch ID, You will see which "Lot" of specific Ananda Hemp extract was used to make your product. This lot code (same as Batch ID) can be traced back directly to the farmer who grew your hemp.
Calculating cannabinoid percentages can be confusing at first. It is our goal to ensure you're not only receiving as much CBD as you deserve in each product, but that you feel comfortable knowing your product is pure, efficacious, and legal per the federal guidelines established under the 2018 farm bill (less than 0.3% THC)
Our COAs report cannabinoid potency based on weighted concentrations in milligram (mg) per milliliter (ml). There are 1,000 milligrams per milliliter; for example, Lot #XXXX of our 600mg product contains 20mg/ml (20mg x 30ml per bottle = 600mg)
20mg per ml for our 600mg product would equal 2% total CBD concentration.
1.5mg per ml would equal .15% total concentration.
*THC is defined by this formula:Delta9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (D9THC) + Tetrahydrocannabolic acid (THCA) x .887%
You may also see a unique profile of terpenes on your COA. These are aromatic compounds that increase the sensory experience of your product and may even increase the overall "entourage effect"
It is important that your product is free from unwanted microbial matter that can cause sickness. These microbes are quantified in colony forming units (CFU’s). We ensure your product is completely free from bacteria E. Coli, Salmonella, and fungus such as Aspergillus.
Ananda Hemp tests for 24 pesticides that are common in the use of cannabis cultivation down to a level of 10 parts per billion (ppb). We also test for class I, II, and III residual solvents. Each class of solvent is given a different pass/fail rate based on its class.
Our heavy metals panel includes, lead, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium. We test these metals down to a level of 39 parts per billion (ppb) and recommend a pass/fail rate that is 4x more stringent than guidance presented by the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) and 12x more stringent than guidance provided by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
