1. Will your product treat my health condition? What are the health benefits of hemp oil extract?
Federal laws prohibit us from making health claims and prohibit doctors in the United States from prescribing cannabidiol (CBD) or hemp oil extracts as medication. Nonetheless, studies are being undertaken to explore the therapeutic benefits of CBD as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain relief), anti-anxiety, anti-spasm, and anti-convulsant agent.
What serving size should I take, and how often?
Serving sizes are indicated on the label, and a product use video can be opened using the QR Code on each product. The servings sizes are recommended, your results may vary. Start with the recommended dose and frequency and adjust your serving size and frequency to achieve the results you desire.
3. Is there any THC in your products? Will I pass a drug test?
Full spectrum, whole plant hemp oil extracts contain significant quantities of cannabidiol (CBD) and also contain trace amounts of many other cannabinoids, including THC. Generally speaking, a drug test result depends largely on the detection goal of the test being used. For example, the result may vary depending on whether the test is designed to measure delta-9 THC, or whether it is designed to measure "total cannabinoids". Each test result will be dependent on that particular testing machine's settings, including sensitivity, specificity, and cutoffs. Results will also depend on the type of sample matrix, and on the dose size relative to the consumer's weight and metabolism. It may be advisable to inform the person collecting the sample that you have consumed a hemp oil extract containing CBD at the time a sample is given, as it might result in a positive drug test.
4. What is the endocannabinoid system?
The endocannabinoid system was discovered by Israeli researcher Dr. Ralph Mechoulam in the mid-1990s. The human body has two types of cannabinoid receptors which play an important role in your immune system, glucose metabolism, insulin resistance and blood formation. These receptors also play a role in cognition, memory, mood, motor function, sensory, autonomic and neurocrine responses. They are responsible for inflammation's effect on your body, and vomiting, nausea, hunger and appetite control. They are configured to accept only cannabinoids like CBD (cannabidiol), such as that found in hemp oil extract.

7. What is CBD, and what is hemp oil extract?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the more than 100 cannabinoids in cannabis plants, including hemp. Cannabinoids are a special class of naturally occurring compounds that show potential for improving a broad array of health conditions. Hemp oil extract contains concentrated amounts of cannabidiol and other cannabinoids.
8. What is the difference between hemp and marijuana?
Hemp is a type of cannabis plant that is extremely low in THC, the compound in marijuana that makes you high. The hemp strains used to create our hemp oil extracts are bred to be high in cannabidiol.
9. What is the CBD content of your products?
The products are formulated so that the number of milligrams of cannabidiol is expressed as "mg/c".
10. What is the best type of product to use?
All of our products are designed to deliver the benefits of hemp oil extract. Depending upon your needs, you prefer to use the topical products (creams and balms) externally directly over affected areas. The ingestible products (tinctures) can be taken orally to promote an overall sense of wellbeing.
11. What is the "entourage effect"?
In contrast to single molecule products that contain just isolated cannabidiol (CBD), whole plant extractions typically include CBD, trace amounts of THC, and more than 100 other trace cannabinoid compounds. Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an "entourage effect" that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant's individual components—so that the beneficial impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
12. Should I stop taking my medicine?
Please consult with your treating physician about your health conditions and medication. Hemp oil extracts are not medicine and are not intended to be substituted for medication prescribed by physicians. It can be dangerous to discontinue certain medications. Always consult with your physician before making any changes to prescribed therapy regimens, including medication.
13. Are hempseed oil and hemp oil extract the same thing?
Hempseed oil is a food grade oil usually cold-pressed from hemp seeds for use in salad dressings and cooking. There are no beneficial amounts of cannabinoids in hempseed oil. Our hemp oil extracts are concentrates extracted from hemp flower and fan leaf grown from strains high in CBD, which are rich in beneficial cannabinoids, including cannabidiol.
14. Where do you ship?

The HALE Difference
What separates us from the rest of the pack is the boutique nature of our product as a result of our verticality. Our roots are literally in the ground. We started as hemp farmers and evolved into extraction, formulation, wholesale, and eventually network marketing. We control every step of the process from soil to oil.
We propagate and cultivate our own hemp plants on our own farms in Colorado, USA. We use organic cultivation methods, which means no pesticides, no herbicides, and no petroleum derived fertilizers.
We harvest hemp flower, not stalks and stems, and extract hemp oil using supercritical CO2, not hydrocarbon solvents.
We formulate our products from full spectrum winterized oil and distillate, not single molecule isolate, so that our products deliver the "entourage effect" of all the cannabinoids working together in natural synergy.
We use the best, proprietary blends of essential oils for the best flavors, aromas, and textures in the market. Don't play the paper comparison game, we invite and encourage you to compare our products to anybody else's, and use the one you like best.
Our products are truly best-in-class because we do everything the right way. We never cut corners. Our products will never be the cheapest, but they have a loyal following because they stand heads and shoulders above the vast majority of competing products on the market.
