TOP QUESTIONS

Have questions about Sunsoil CBD products? We talk to people about CBD every day. Here are the most frequent questions we receive and some quick answers.

Why does Sunsoil use lipid extraction?

We have developed a simple lipid extraction method using only organic coconut oil and coconut-derived MCT oil to extract CBD from our hemp plants. For our purposes, this method is the most efficient and does the best job of capturing the essence of our hemp plants as nature intended. We offer a whole plant, full spectrum CBD oil with nothing added or removed during extraction. 

Can I fly with Sunsoil CBD oil?

Domestic Flights

CBD products containing less than 0.3% THC by weight are permitted under the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. Since Sunsoil’s hemp-derived CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC, you can fly anywhere within the United States with our CBD oil, softgels, capsules or CBD Coconut Oil in your carry-on or checked luggage. If you’re only bringing a carry-on and are concerned about limiting your liquids, we would suggest traveling with our softgels and capsules as a convenient alternative to our liquid CBD Oil Drops.

International Flights

We do not advise people to travel internationally with our products unless they have consulted with the appropriate authorities.

Why are your prices lower than other CBD brands I’ve researched?

Our main mission is to make a high-quality CBD oil that is both affordable and accessible. We stand for people, not profits. We price all of our products at a flat rate of 5 cents per milligram of CBD, and plan to continually bring our prices down over time. We are able to offer our CBD oil at this price by vertically integrating: breeding our own seeds, utilizing efficient organic farming practices, and developing our own lipid extraction method. We believe simplicity is key, and we use only organic coconut oil and coconut-derived MCT oil to extract from our (organically-grown) hemp plants.

Do you offer any discounts or offer codes?

We work very hard to offer our CBD oil at the price that we do, and we are looking into ways to help our customers save. One of our main missions is to continually bring our prices down, in order to continue making a high-quality CBD oil that is both affordable and accessible – as it should be. Our CBD products are priced at 5 cents per milligram – the lowest price in the country without sacrificing quality. We also work with our network of partners to occasionally offer discounts.

Were you also called Green Mountain CBD?

We started as Green Mountain CBD and changed our name to Sunsoil in early 2019. With this name change, you can expect the same exact product formulas, pricing, farming practices, extraction method, and people behind the company as you did under our former name. The recent change only impacted our name and logo. Transitioning to our new name and logo allows us to trademark Sunsoil as a brand, which helps to protect our product and customers. 

Our Products

Are Sunsoil products full spectrum?

All of our products are full spectrum, whole plant extracts, and we extract using only organic coconut oil and coconut-derived MCT oil. Nothing is added or removed during our extraction process in order to preserve the wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes that naturally exist in our hemp plants.

What are the natural flavors in your CBD oil drops?

Our flavored liquid CBD oils, such as our Chocolate Mint, Cinnamon and Citrus, contain natural flavors that are derived from plants. Our cinnamon oil is flavored with organic cinnamon oil of the ceylon variety from Madagascar. Our citrus oil is flavored with sweet orange oil. And our Chocolate Mint CBD oil is flavored with peppermint essential oil and aroma compounds derived from plants. 

Are your CBD oil capsules vegan and vegetarian?

Our CBD oil capsules are not made with any animal products. They are vegan and vegetarian.

Is Sunsoil CBD gluten free?

Our products do not contain gluten and are produced in allergen-free environments.

What are your CBD oil capsules made of?

Sunsoil CBD oil capsules are made of HPMC. This is a semi-synthetic cellulose that has been the industry standard used in vegetarian capsules. Our CBD oil (product in capsules) is produced and manufactured on site at our Vermont farm using our organic hemp and organic coconut oil.

What's the shelf life of Sunsoil CBD oil?

We suggest storing our CBD oil in a cool, dry place away from a heat source or direct sunlight. Each bottle of Sunsoil CBD has an expiration date on the bottle. Our products can be refrigerated if preferred, but it is not necessary.

What are the ingredients in your CBD oil?
Our full spectrum CBD oil is extracted from USDA certified organic hemp using coconut oil or MCT oil depending on the product (coconut-derived MCT oil is used in place of coconut oil for manufacturing tinctures). We do not use alcohol, CO2 or harsh solvents for extraction.
Can I vape your products?
No, none of our products are approved for or intended for vaping.

Taking CBD

How much CBD should I take?

We are not medical professionals and advise those curious about CBD to talk to their medical professional or practioner about CBD.

We generally encourage our customers to start with a serving of 20mg of CBD, and to wait at least 4 to 6 hours before trying any more, making sure to pay attention to how you feel. The amount of CBD taken can be increased or decreased incrementally from there. Every person will respond differently to CBD, so it is important to find the right serving size for your needs.

Which Sunsoil CBD product should I take?

When selecting a CBD product from Sunsoil, it’s helpful to decide how you intend to use it. For fast-acting results and to experiment with different flavors, our line of whole plant CBD oil drops is a great place to start. For efficiently taking CBD on the go, our softgels and capsules are a convenient option. And for cooking, topical uses or giving CBD to your pet, our CBD Coconut Oil is a convenient choice.

Will I fail a drug test if I take CBD?

Our CBD oil is a whole plant, full spectrum extract that does contain trace amounts of THC – well below the established limits for any hemp products (a maximum of 0.3% by dry weight of any part of the plant).  We are not authorities on drug testing, so we advise that people who are subject to screening should err on the side of caution.

Many variables can come into play regarding these tests, including but not limited to: individual metabolism, serving size/frequency of CBD oil, the test method used, and an individual’s exposure – be that first or second-hand, to the substances that are screened for. There is nothing illegal about consuming the trace amount of THC found in a hemp product, but employer-mandated testing will have its own rules that impacted employees must be careful to follow.

Do I need a medical card to purchase Sunsoil CBD oil?

You do not need a medical card to purchase from us because our products are made from hemp and legal in all 50 states.  

Can my pet take Sunsoil CBD oil?

Our CBD Coconut Oil and Unflavored CBD Oil are pet friendly. We advise against giving flavored CBD oils to pets, as the essential oils used for flavoring can be too strong for our four-legged friends. Talk to your vet about how to incorporate CBD oil into your pet's routine. 

Is CBD legal?

Yes. Hemp derived CBD products, such as Sunsoil CBD, are legal in the United States.

Is it safe to take CBD with the medicine or supplements that I use?
Please refer to your doctor or health care provider for any questions about the safety of our product for you or interactions with other medications you are using. If you use prescription medications, take supplements or have underlying health conditions that cause concern, check with a health care provider to make sure that CBD oil will be safe for your use.

Our Process

What method do you use for extraction?

 

LIPID INFUSION FOR EXTRACTION

We use lipid infusion because its simplicity preserves the purity and integrity of our plants. Lipids are naturally occurring molecules that form a group of compounds (fatty acids) and are insoluble in water. Common substances like coconut oil and olive oil are considered lipids. Lipid infusion is a straightforward, toxin-free process that uses heat and pressure to capture the full spectrum of our USDA certified organic hemp plants and their cannabinoids, terpenes and additional phytocompounds. Lipid infusion enables us to make high-quality, whole-plant hemp extract that is minimally processed and efficient – two qualities that help feed the core of Sunsoil’s mission.

Do you extract from the stems of your hemp plants?

We extract directly from the aerial parts of our hemp plants using  organic coconut oil and coconut-derived MCT oil. We do not extract from the stems of our plants. Additionally, we make a whole plant, full spectrum extract – we do not isolate and reconstitute our cannabinoids.

Does Sunsoil use pesticides?

Our hemp is USDA certified organic. We use organic farming practices and we do not use pest control products on our crops at any point. Our plants are rich in terpenes and cannabinoids that function as their own natural pest control.

Does Sunsoil use any solvents during the manufacturing process?

No alcohol or any harsh solvents are ever used in out process and are not present in our products. We extract CBD from hemp using organic coconut oil, heat, pressure and time.
