  • Do you ship CBD products outside the US?

    Per federal regulations, we are unable to ship our CBD products outside the United States at this time. We can however ship the Hemp version.

    The difference is minor: CBD is the distilled version of the whole hemp plant. This is currently prohibited from cross-border shipments.

    The Hemp line uses organic hemp oil pressed from just the seeds of the hemp plant. The seeds are rich in Omega-3 and other beneficials. Products using hemp seed oil can be shipped worldwide. We developed our Hemp line especially for this reason.

  • What is CBD?

    CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is a naturally occurring chemical compound from the cannabis plant. Unlike its cousin tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it's not psychoactive.

  • Should I use CBD for pain relief?

    Topical CBD has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain-killing) properties providing therapeutic pain relief without entering the bloodstream or the negative side effects commonly associated with the other alternatives such as NSAIDS.

  • Does CBD really absorb through the skin?

    Yes!  Your pores allow CBD to penetrate the skin and reach your cannabinoid receptors, providing therapeutic benefits to targeted areas.  The CBD doesn’t enter your bloodstream.  Sweet Earth CBD cream demonstrates steady skin permeability when applied topically.

  • How long does it take for CBD to absorb through skin?

    CBD's ability to penetrate the skin and provide therapeutic effects varies from product to product, and person to person. Product research with Sweet Earth CBD cream shows absorption begins within 30 minutes and steadily increases to give you the maximum benefits in 3 hours. 

  • How do I use topical CBD products?

    CBD’s benefits are best absorbed through the skin to provide maximum pain relief. Topical use provides more control in application to target the area(s) needed for pain relief. When applied it does not penetrate deep enough to get into the bloodstream.

  • Do your CBD skincare products contain THC?

    Our products are made with whole hemp CBD Distillate. Distillate by definition is THC-free and only contains CBD. There is no THC in our products and nothing in them that will cause you to experience a "high."

  • Can your CBD products get me high?

    Nope! CBD will not get you high or affect your state of mind. Feelings of being “high” are caused by THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). According to the World Health Organization, CBD does not produce adverse reactions or effects in humans seen with cannabinoids like THC.

    When applied topically, the trace amounts (0.3 percent) of THC from full spectrum CBD will not penetrate deep enough to affect the bloodstream.

  • Does topical CBD have side effects?

    Using topicals containing CBD may result in skin irritation. If irritation occurs discontinue use immediately. If irritation persists consult a physician.

  • Is CBD addictive?

    No, per the World Health Organization, CBD has not shown significant effects of abuse potential or physical dependency. Across a number of controlled and open label trials of the potential therapeutic effects, CBD has been seen as well-tolerated with a good safety profile.

  • Is CBD legal?

    Yes! CBD from hemp is legal. The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and hemp-derived products on a federal level. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) states “CBD oil from hemp is no longer a Schedule 1 controlled-substance, or drug”. Per section 10113 of the Farm Bill, hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent THC by weight.

  • Are your products cruelty free?

    Our CBD skincare products are Certified Cruelty Free! You can view our page on the Leaping Bunny website here.

  • Are your products tested?

    Sweet Earth Hemp CBD is non-GMO and contains no pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. Our products are tested by accredited third-party labs, assuring customers that all our products, including oils and isolates, are safe and legal for use.
