Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-intoxicating component of the cannabis plant with enormous therapeutic potential. Although CBD doesn’t make people feel high like THC does, it’s causing quite a buzz among scientists, health professionals, and patients. Scientists refer to CBD as a “promiscuous” compound because it confers therapeutic benefits in many different ways while tapping into how we function physiologically and biologically on a deep level.

The CBD in all of Dr. G's products occurs naturally from within the whole hemp plant. We believe that full spectrum hemp oil, which contains a wide range of cannabinoids found within the entire hemp plant, including CBD and trace amounts of THC, is therapeutically superior to an isolate or broad spectrum product. When multiple hemp compounds interact synergistically, it creates what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
Yes, Dr. G's products are tested far beyond all the State and Federal requirements. Not only are all our products third party analytically lab tested, but we go a step further by providing a QR code on every product that connects you to the Certificate of Authority (COA) for that product's lab results. We test for impurities, metals, pesticides, molds, and mildew. Our testing standard is the highest in the Nation, even higher than medical cannabis standards.
No: by legal definition, hemp and all hemp products must contain < 0.3% THC. Anything over 0.3% THC is considered “marijuana” by Federal law. Under 0.3% is “hemp.” This is a critical distinction. Marijuana is on the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) as a federally illegal Schedule 1 drug. Hemp is not on the CSA.
Yes: On December 20, 2018, President Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 (Farm Bill) into law. As part of the Farm Bill, hemp was permanently removed from the Controlled Substances Act, and hemp is now treated as the agricultural crop it has always been.
No. Dr. G's products are available without a prescription.
Hemp extract itself is very safe. But it is crucial to choose only products that are pesticide-free, solvent-free, non-GMO, and 3rd-party verified. Each and every Dr. G's product meets that criteria.
We utilize full spectrum hemp extract, which includes all the cannabinoids found naturally in the hemp plant, including trace amounts of THC. Every batch is verified to be under the federal definition of <0.3% THC. Every Dr. G’s product packaging contains a QR code that can be scanned with a smart device and will take you directly to the 3rd-party verified testing for your product.
No: it is impossible to take enough hemp to get high. Fact: The Federal government specifically stated that part of the reason the hemp definition was set at <0.3% is because at that concentration “hemp” can have no psychoactive effect at any dose.
If CBD won’t get me 'high', then what will it do and feel like? Due to the multiple sets of receptors, CBD’s effects are experienced throughout the body. It is best described by many as a wave of relief or relaxation throughout the whole body.
Full spectrum hemp extract comes from the whole plant which contains over 400 molecules that work in synergy, which boosts their individual eﬀect. Synthetic CBD is isolated, meaning it only has the benefit of a single component versus the combined eﬀects of the full spectrum of components. Studies have shown that full spectrum hemp extract requires lower dosages than synthetic. Dr. G’s full spectrum hemp extract is derived from carefully monitored natural processes and is guaranteed pesticide free. Synthetic CBD oil or isolate is made in a laboratory.
Hemp extract containing CBD is non-toxic. No known fatal overdoses have ever been reported. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) removed hemp-based CBD from its list of banned substances, as of January 2018. WADA governs the planet’s most elite athletes. The World Health Organization (WHO - health agency of the United Nations) stated in December 2017: “Recent evidence from animal and human studies shows that its use could have some therapeutic value for seizures due to epilepsy and related conditions. Current evidence also shows that cannabidiol is not likely to be abused or create dependence as for other cannabinoids (such as Tetra Hydro Cannabinol (THC), for instance),…” The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (2011) concluded, ‘no signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of hemp extract to healthy volunteers (Cunha et al., Pharmacology 21:127- 185, 1980), even in large acute doses of 700 mg/day (Consroe et al., Pharmacol, Biochem, Behav. 40:701-708, 1991).’
Hemp extract eﬀects everyone differently. It is also important to understand that not all “hemp” extract is created equal. Read and understand the fine print on any product before putting it in your or a loved one’s body. An effective dosage can range from as little as a few milligrams of CBD enriched hemp extract up to hundreds of milligrams or more. Most patients report an average of 50-60mg per day, with many taking much higher doses. Begin with a small dose of Dr. G’s hemp extract, especially if you have little to no experience with CBD oil. Take a few small doses over the course of the day rather than one big dose. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Observe the effects and if necessary, adjust the ratio amount. Start small and increase by set increments as necessary until symptoms are relieved or as recommended by a healthcare provider.
The consumption of certain hemp products that contain trace amount of THC may lead to a false positive on a drug test for marijuana. We recommend you consult your HR department and/or doctor if this is of concern.
NO! White labeling is the practice of taking a product like CBD hemp extract produced by one company (the producer) and then another company (the marketers) rebrands it by applying their own label to make it appear as if they had made it.
Dr. G's hemp extracts are a proprietary formula created by Dr. Lisa Gardner that is specifically manufactured to her precise specifications and available only for Dr. G’s products.
All Dr. G’s utilizes only the superior CO2 method of extract ion. CO2 extract ion is perhaps the most effective method for maintaining terpene levels and preventing cannabinoids from being deactivated during the extract ion process.
The most advantageous aspect of CO2 extract ion is the fact that when used as a solvent, carbon dioxide leaves behind no residues, which is critical to providing customers with the purest form of cannabis oil.
Other extract ion methods can leave behind trace levels of heavy metals. CO2 is the clear choice for those seeking the finest in extracted oil.
