CBD FAQ's

  • What is CBD?

    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring chemical compound that is extracted and processed from flowers of cannabis plants such as hemp. There are many ongoing studies looking at the effects of CBD. Unlike its cousin THC, CBD is not “high-inducing” or intoxicating.

    Though our CBD Sparkling Water is in the non-alcoholic category we are only selling it to Paddlers who are age 21+ and do not recommend for women who are pregnant or breast feeding.

  • What is the difference between Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum CBD?

    Broad Spectrum CBD Extract is processed without any THC present in the final product whereas Full Spectrum CBD Extract contains trace amounts of THC in accordance with Minnesota State Statutes.

  • Is there THC in your product?

    Both our CBD+ and THC+ Sparkling Beverage lines contain THC as we use a Full Spectrum CBD hemp extract. As per State Statute we only include less than 5 mg per serving of Hemp Derived THC in those products listing it.

  • What is the difference between your THC+ and CBD+ Product Lines?

    Our THC+ product line contains 5mg THC and 5mg CBD whereas our CBD+ Sparkling Water product line contains 2mg THC and 25mg CBD Hemp Extract. We plan to make a CBD Product line in the future that contains no THC.
