CBD Information

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid that is found in high concentrations in certain strains of hemp. Cannabidiol can interact with the human endocannabinoid system and has non-intoxicating effects.

Our Full-Spectrum CBD products are made by a whole plant extraction. We carefully control our process to maintain and preserve the full suite of naturally occurring phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes in the hemp plant in addition to CBD. This suite of compounds, which includes THC, has potential synergistic benefits which are currently being researched. The THC in our full spectrum products will always be below the federally mandated limit of less than 0.3% by dry weight. 

Broad-Spectrum CBD removes some of the helpful phytocannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes in the hemp plant. This can potentially lower the benefits of using CBD. 

We believe Full-Spectrum CBD is the best way to use CBD! Don’t believe us? This recent study showed that you need all the components in CBD to get the best results.

No, hemp seed oil is extracted solely from the seeds of the Cannabis sativa plant while CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant’s flowers, stalk, stems and leaves. While hemp seed oil contains valuable nutrients and antioxidants, such as omega-3 and omega-6 acids and vitamins E, B2 and B6, cannabidiol quantities are rarely detectable. CBD hemp oil, however, contains high concentrations of cannabidiol as well as additional phytocannabinoids and terpenes.

All Holy City Farms Full Spectrum CBD products contain the specified amount of cannabinoids (CBD), which means it is CBD oil.

Hemp oil or hemp extract are sometimes used in place of CBD hemp oil and can cause a lot of confusion. To ensure that you are purchasing a product that is actually high in CBD, look for third party test results for the product. Test results for all Holy City Farms products are located on the Test Results tab on the Learn page.

Our Process

Our process, simply put, is seed to sale.

Holy City Farms quality begins the moment a hemp seed is planted and continues through the sale of our products. We intentionally select the finest hemp genetics to generate a robust profile of cannabinoids, terpenes, and nutrients in each plant.  Superior hemp genetics, paired with a commitment to grow in an ecologically sound manner, allow us to maintain a healthy, sustainable hemp lifecycle.

Our team tenderly cares to each plant throughout the entire cultivation process.

Once our hand-selected plants have finished curing, cannabinoids, terpenes, nutrients, and proteins are carefully extracted using heat to slowly and gently draw out the cannabinoids.

We owe it to you, our loyal customers, to hold ourselves to the highest quality standard possible, which is why we test our product at every stage of our value chain.  Thanks to our internal cannabinoid testing lab, we have the unique ability to test our flower, extracts, and formulations several times for accuracy and consistency.  In other words, you’re getting exactly what’s on your label.

Absolutely! We are proud to say that 100% of our hemp is grown right here on our own farm in beautiful Wadmalaw Island, which is near Charleston, SC also known as the “Holy City.”

Through our proprietary method of gentle thermal extraction we are able to create a true full spectrum oil that preserves the flowers’ full cannabinoid and terpene profile. We use kief, which is the bulbous, crystal formation on the tip of the glands in the hemp flower or trichome, to extract the strongest concentrations of terpenes and cannabinoids from our premium hemp flower. By using only kief in our gentle thermal extraction process we are able to collect the most pure and cleanest trichomes from the hemp flower.

We only use the premium hemp flower we grow on our farm to ensure we provide the highest quality CBD to as many people as possible. The hemp flower contains the highest concentration of cannabinoids in the plant. By using only the flower portion of the hemp plant, there is less plant material used during the extraction process, which results in a premium quality product.

How to use CBD

Due to the wide range of use-cases for CBD, appropriate serving sizes can vary widely. Your serving size will be dependent upon your body weight, metabolism, individual body chemistry, and other metabolic factors. We cannot make specific recommendations regarding serving sizes. We recommend starting with a small amount of CBD, and gradually increasing the serving until the desired effects are achieved.

While our products do not require refrigeration, we recommend storing your CBD oils and topicals in a cool dry place, similar to how you would store honey. Make sure to shake well before each use.

Our CBD oil in its purest form commonly has a robust grassy, nutty or earthy flavor, which comes from the organic compounds that make up the hemp plant from which the oil is derived. These compounds include cannabinoids, terpenes and chlorophyll. Many of our customers enjoy the bold, earthy taste of our full spectrum, unflavored tincture. If you find the taste or smell unappealing, consider mixing the unflavored tincture with some yogurt, a fruit smoothie, ice cream or your favorite recipe to mask the earthy flavor of the unflavored tincture. You could also try one of our flavored CBD Oils instead.
