What is hemp? Is it legal?
Hemp does not cause any psychoactive effects, and it is legal for licensed farmers to grow. Businesses craft clothing, soaps, nutritional products and even cars and houses out of hemp. Industrial hemp is legal across the United States and most of the world.
What makes our hemp different?
Our industrial hemp-derived products are produced from 100% organic plants grown on the Elite Botanicals farm in Loveland, Colorado. The full-spectrum hemp extract used in our products is extracted from flowers and not from seeds, which results in higher potency and better quality. A lot of other hemp-derived products sold in the US today are sourced from overseas and do not meet the same standards to which we hold ourselves.
Where is Mary’s hemp sourced from? How is it classified?
Mary’s hemp extract is derived from 100% organic industrial hemp plants grown in full compliance with the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s industrial hemp program. Since these plants contain significantly less than 0.3% THC, they are classified as industrial hemp under federal and state law.
Do you test your products?
All Mary’s Nutritionals processes and products are tested in a quality control laboratory overseen by Dr. Jeremy Riggle. This in-house testing is conducted on all raw materials, extracts and final products, which are held to exacting standards of purity and consistency. Mary’s also works with independent quality control labs for third-party validation of the quality of all final products. Test results are always available upon request.
What Is hemp extract? What is CBD?
Although there are over 100 identified phytocannabinoids in the cannabis sativa plant, the two most well-known are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Our products are infused with naturally occurring Cannabidiol (CBD). The extract used in our products is sourced from high-quality Colorado-grown hemp plants, which must contain less than 0.3% THC to be classified as hemp. The extract we use contains naturally occurring phytocompounds and terpenes that work synergistically to provide maximum benefits.
How is CBD different from THC?
The main difference between THC and CBD is that THC elicits a euphoric response, whereas CBD does not. CBD provides therapeutic benefits without the mind-altering effects often associated with THC.
How does CBD work?
Endocannabinoids are compounds that our bodies naturally produce to balance and control communication between cells. Research indicates that many unpleasant symptoms and diseases occur when a deficiency or other problem impacts the endocannabinoid system. When cannabinoids like CBD bind to CB1 and CB2 receptors in the body, the receptors either do more or less of what they were doing in order to bring your body back to a place of homeostasis.
What are the benefits of taking CBD oil?
While we do not make any guarantees about the use of our products, we do have four years’ worth of positive feedback from many happy Mary’s customers.
Can CBD get me high?
No, it cannot. CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is non-euphoric (it does not result in feelings of euphoria) and has a remarkable safety profile.
How long do the effects of the patch last?
The patch is designed to last approximately 8-12 hours. Please note the experience can vary based onbody composition, metabolism and level of pain.
How soon will I feel the effects and what are the effects of the transdermal patch?
Users generally feel the effects within the first 20 minutes. Some people will notice an effect right away, and for others, it may take a few days. The effects of CBD are individualized, and each person may report a different benefit. Overall, customers claim they have experienced relief from pain, anxiety, neuropathy, depression and more.
Can I wear more than one patch at a time? Can I cut the patch in half?
While some have found relief from one-half or one-quarter of a patch, others may use multiple patches to achieve a desired effect. You can wear more than one patch at a time, and you can adjust your dose by cutting the patch in halves, quarters or thirds. In fact, many happy customers have found relief using only half a patch at a time.
How do I use the gel pen?

How do your transdermal products compare to other delivery methods?
Mary’s offers novel and effective delivery methods, and we are leading the way in transdermal delivery methods. Transdermal delivery offers high bioavailability, convenient and discreet use, and an accurate and consistent dose. With transdermal delivery, CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream and travels systemically to promote balance and homeostasis from the inside out. This is an effective method because, unlike edible products, there is no risk of the CBD being degraded by stomach acid, which studies have shown can destroy up to 80% of CBD before it’s even absorbed by the body.
