Frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
CBD, is short for Cannabidiol. It is a plant-cannabinoid (phytocannibinoid) found in the Flower and leaves of the Hemp plant. Many confuse Hemp Seed Oil for CBD, but this is not the same thing. Hemp Seed Oil comes from the seeds/grain of the Hemp Plant.
What is our Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and how does it relate to CBD?
In the end of the 20th century our Endocannabinoid System or ECS, was uncovered after a couple decades of deliberate investigation by researchers who wanted to know more about how plant-cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) work in relation to our own body-made-cannabinoids (endocannabinoids).
Our ECS is a messenger system or switchboard, acting and reacting to internal and external stimuli such as signals of pain, stress, and/or inflammation. Our ECS processes those signals and assists our bodies in correcting itself in order to be balanced again. It does this through a complex process by producing body-made cannabinoids (endocannabinoids).
Research has found that plants like hemp that contain these plant-cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids), directly mimic our human body, endocannabinoids. This makes phytocannabinoids super helpful in assisting our ECS System in therapeautic, promising, and healing ways.
If our body already produces its own cannabinoids, why would I supplement with phytocannabinoids?
Our ECS system is constantly affected and vulnerable by our modern day lives. Emotional stress, consuming unhealthy foods, the overuse of prescription pills, modern environmental toxins and pollutants can lead to developing chronic illnesses and the weakness of our ECS system. When your ECS is not healthy you may develop ECS system dysfunction where your body is out of balance.
Caring for ourselves to restore and balance our ECS system is essential to our overall health. Incorporating phytocannabinoids, such as CBD can be therapeautic in restoring and rebalancing your ECS system and your overall health.
Will CBD make me high?
No! CBD will NOT make you high. Unlike THC which is the phsychoactive cannabinoid, CBD is a NON-physcoactive cannabinoid found in the Hemp plant. All Sweetwater products follow regulations and contain less than .3% THC.
What states do you ship to?
The Nebraska Department of Agricultural Industrial Hemp Program allows us to legally sell across all 50 states. Please note that our online payment processor currently DOES NOT allow us to sell online to the following states: Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire and South Dakota.
If you are happen to be located in one of these states we CAN still place your order if you contact us directly by emailing us with the subject line "ORDER- And Your State".

We hope soon in the future we can allow the above states to place orders through our site via our current payment processor.
What makes Sweetwater products superior when compared to other CBD Oils?
Product purity is not just dependent on high quality strains, but also the extraction process and cutting edge equipment. Sweetwater Hemp Company uses a unique water and ice extraction method and advanced equipment that isolates the distinct terpene profiles at the molecular level, providing the right therapeutic values for the consumer in the CBD oil. The majority of other processors uses equipment and processes that often lose or completely destroys the terpenes during the decarboxylation process. Knowing that this is a common pitfall to the product potency.
Sweetwater Hemp Company only uses the latest extraction technology to assure minimal to zero loss of terpenes in the extraction process.
