Get to Know Your Happy Place™

WHY SHOULD I BUY HAPPY PLACE™ CBD?

Happy Place™ is the ultimate source for CBD-based TLC for the body and mind. We craft our CBD products with mindful attention to detail and quality, and we go the extra mile to make sure that everything is pure and clean.

WHERE IS HAPPY PLACE™ BASED?

Happy Place™ was born in Minnesota — the land of 10,000 lakes and infinite reasons to smile.

ARE HAPPY PLACE™ CBD PRODUCTS THIRD-PARTY TESTED?

Yes! To view our test results, snap a pic of the QR code on your product’s label. It will link you to information about when the product was made, how it was tested, and what the results of those tests were.

WHAT IS A GMP-CERTIFIED MANUFACTURING FACILITY?

GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which are set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The rules for GMP certification require that products manufactured for human consumption are safe, include the ingredients they say they do, and are free from contaminants. In addition to processes, GMP certification also applies to the facilities, staff, and equipment used during the manufacturing process. As a CBD manufacturer, we are currently not regulated by the FDA, but we do our best to stay within existing rules regulating the manufacture of other edible products.

CBD Basics

WHAT IS CBD?

CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring compound (one of many!) that comes from the hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD has no intoxicating effects. It’s perfectly safe to drive, bike, or jump rope after using CBD.

HOW DOES CBD WORK? HOW DOES IT AFFECT MY BODY?

CBD works within your endocannabinoid system to support your natural neurotransmitters, potentially providing relief for everyday aches and physical discomfort and assisting with Omega-3 processing. CBD also bonds with a receptor that triggers serotonin release, which may help soothe worries and calm busy minds.

WHAT EXACTLY IS A CANNABINOID?

Cannabinoids are compounds that lend a hand to our immune and central nervous systems. They’re found in two forms: phytocannabinoids that are made by plants and endocannabinoids that are made by our bodies. Although a whole bunch of plants produce phytocannabinoids, the hemp plant is a big, reliable source of them.

WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?

Like your nervous system and your lymphatic system, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of structures in your body that work together to keep you balanced and healthy. The ECS produces endocannabinoids and uses any phytocannabinoids you take in to help regulate bodily functions like sleep, appetite, mood, pain, stress, inflammation, and memory.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CANNABIS AND HEMP?

Hemp and cannabis both come from the same plant family and share many beneficial qualities. The major difference between the two is their level of THC. Cannabis contains significant amounts of THC, which is known for producing a “high” when consumed. Hemp has very little THC and does not produce a high when consumed, but it does have a much higher concentration of CBD, which makes it perfect for Happy Place™.

WILL CBD SHOW UP IN DRUG TESTING?

CBD will not show up on a drug screening test. However, consuming large quantities of hemp-derived products containing up to 0.3% THC may produce a positive test result.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN CBD ISOLATE, BROAD SPECTRUM CBD, and FULL SPECTRUM CBD?

These are kinda like the colors in the CBD crayon box. They all contain CBD but in different shades. The key difference is the number of naturally occurring phytochemicals that are present in addition to CBD.

Full Spectrum CBD is the rawest form of extracted CBD. It includes all the other phytochemicals from the hemp plant, including trace levels of THC. Full spectrum CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC to be compliant with the 2018 Farm Bill.

Broad Spectrum CBD retains all of the additional phytochemicals naturally found in the plant but removes any trace of THC.

CBD Isolate is CBD in its purest form. In CBD Isolate, all additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant components have been removed through filtration and distillation to leave a fine, tasteless powder with zero THC.

USING CBD

HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?

CBD is biphasic upon ingestion, meaning low and high doses produce opposite effects, even though it’s the same stuff. Small doses may provide a boost in mood, while large doses tend to chill you out. Use the same small dose and ratio for a few days, and let your body adjust and react to it. You can turn up the volume as time goes on.

HOW SHOULD I STORE MY HAPPY PLACE™ PRODUCTS?

Keep your friends close, and your Happy Place™ CBD closer! Store your products in a cool, dry place with no direct exposure to constant light or excessive heat.

DO CBD PRODUCTS EXPIRE?

Because CBD is a naturally occurring substance, products containing it do have a shelf life, especially once open. Check your product for specific details.

CAN I TAKE CBD WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS OR IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?

CBD may have powerful effects on your mind and body. If you are currently on medication or are pregnant or nursing, it’s best to check with your doctor before you take CBD.

CAN CHILDREN USE HAPPY PLACE™ CBD PRODUCTS?

It’s tough to perform CBD research on kids, as they find it difficult to describe how their body is reacting to a substance over time. We suggest consulting your doctor before giving any Happy Place™ product to your child.
