What is Full Spectrum Hemp Oil?
Let's start with CBD.. since that's the buzz word flying around...From Wikipedia - "Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant's extract. In 2018, clinical research on cannabidiol included preliminary studies of anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain."  CBD is not psychoactive... it's cousin THC is. CBD is one of the cannabinoids in Full Spectrum Hemp Oil.  

Hemp & Marijuana?
Hemp and Marijuana come from the same family of plants, but they are different plants.  THC levels in Hemp are 0.3% or less.  Pure Midwest does everything by the book and only grows Hemp.

Is this legal?
 The 2014 Farm Bill took the position that states can regulate the production of hemp and, as a result, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. In 2018, a new Farm Bill made it federally legal to grow hemp.

Full Spectrum vs Isolate vs Broad Spectrum?
CBD is just one Cannabinoid in hemp.  There may be over 100 cannabinoids.  Isolate is CBD by itself.  Full Spectrum Hemp Oil has CBD but with other cannabinoids while still maintaining less than 0.3% THC.  Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil has CBD and other cannabinoids but with zero THC.  We sell Full Spectrum Hemp Oil because when you have many cannabinoids working together it creates what is known as the "entourage effect".  Per request, we did add an Isolate Gummy as well.

I get drug tested at work, will I pass?
If used correctly, you should pass a regular employer drug test because of the very low level of THC.  However, if you want even higher certainty, use a CBD Isolate or Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil from a reputable brand.  We advise you to understand your employers' test so you know if less than 0.3% THC will pass.  And ALWAYS read the Certificate of Analysis to understand what is in the product you put in/on your body.  If you can't easily find or see the COA, probably wise to stay away from that brand.

How do I read the bottle so I know what I'm getting?
A bottle might say 30ml / 750 mg.  30ml is the amount of liquid in the bottle.  750mg is the amount of CBD in the bottle.  A tincture typically is 1ml of liquid which equates to a CBD serving of approximately 25ml. (we advise you to check the size of your tincture).  On every bottle from Pure Midwest, you have a QR code you can scan with your smartphone which will take you to our website to view the Certificate of Authenticity from the 3rd Party Independent lab.  It will tell you exactly what is in your bottle's batch. 

There are a lot of brands out there... why should I trust Pure Midwest?
There are a lot of good solid companies out there and then there are some really bad ones with slick marketing.  There are also a lot of mass manufacturers who do white label production.  The biggest difference that we have is our quality... and we achieve that by controlling every aspect of the supply chain / process... the genetics, the farm, the lab, the formulation.  We also test multiple times throughout the process to ensure correct results.  We are also completely transparent with our Certificate of Analysis so you know exactly what you are putting in / on your body.  All of our processes are to the degree that when the FDA does finally regulate this industry... we should already be compliant (so we want the FDA to regulate).

Why do prices for hemp oil / CBD vary so much?
.First, know if you have getting isolate, broad spectrum or full spectrum.  Then understand if you are buying from a solid and trusted company or a mass manufacturer that is white labeling.  Our goal is for people to be able to experience the same effects that my mom, dad and others we know and love have.  And to do that, we've priced ourselves in the lower quarter of quality products on the market.. even though quality wise we would rank out to be one of the best.  We genuinely want to help people.

If you still want further "proof", buy one of our products.. try it out for the month... and if you don't like it... return it and get your money back.  We have an empty bottle guarantee.

How much should I take?
First off, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil does not have an FDA approved dosage size. Second, we are all a little bit different so we recommend to start with lower amounts and if you are not feeling an effect after 3-4 days then gradually increase.

The human body should be producing 1 mg per kilogram of body weight naturally in our ECS (Endocannabinoid System) so 1 mg per 2.2lbs of body weight is what should get you back to homeostasis. The charts below will help you make sense of the strength of the oil, your body weight and how many tinctures that equates to per day.  Please remember to start with a lower dose, use it for 3-4 days and if you are not feeling a difference then slowly increase.  Everyone's body is different.

Btw, a "tincture" is a dropper full.


And, as always... please consult your Doctor
