About CBD and hemp
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of cannabis sativa (industrial hemp) plants. CBD is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis, and it is scientifically studied for many reasons. Most people have heard of THC, which is also a cannabinoid present in cannabis. THC is known for causing a “high” in users. Unlike THC, Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that does not promote psychoactive effects or create a high.
CBD Oil derived from industrial hemp does not contain more than 0.3% THC so consumers won’t feel the “high” that is commonly associated with this cannabinoid when consuming CBD Oil.
While CBD Oil may just contain Cannabidiol, it can also include other beneficial cannabinoids (like THC), terpenes and flavonoids—depending on the full, broad or pure spectrum of hemp compounds in the CBD Oil.
Phytocannabinoid Hemp Oil contains the hemp plant’s most beneficial properties. Comprised of over 100 naturally occurring compounds, Phytocannabinoid Hemp Oil contains essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins and cannabinoids.
Extracted from hemp seeds, Hemp Oil comes from industrial hemp plants and does not contain any cannabinoids. Hemp Oil, also referred to as Hemp Seed Oil is widely used in cooking as a replacement for olive oil, and Hemp Oil is a healthy protein source with a nutty flavor.
Hemp Oil does not contain phytocannabinoids or Cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a phytocannabinoid that is found in CBD Oil, along with other hemp plant compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. Hemp Oil is not the same as CBD Oil.

Hemp Extract Oil is extracted from the whole plant and includes both phytocannabinoids and plant matter.
Due to Dietary Supplement Health and Education (DSHEA) guidelines, we urge you to do your own CBD research, consult with your medical team and use credible sources to identify possible CBD uses and benefits. Anecdotal evidence and case studies are available, but more research is required to provide structure/function claims associated with taking CBD Oil. Veré encourages consumers to speak with their clinical team before beginning a new dietary supplement or nutritional regimen.
Veré CBD Products
We would never sacrifice quality by manufacturing or selling synthetic CBD. Instead, Veré Full Spectrum CBD Oil incorporates whole-plant extracts rich in cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial oils. We also provide a THC-free Broad Spectrum CBD Oil in addition to our CBD Isolate (Pure CBD Oil).
Our Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil contains high concentrations of CBD, along with other beneficial cannabinoids like CBDa, CBDV, CBG, CBC and 0.3% trace amounts of THC, in addition to plant compounds like terpenes and flavonoids. These beneficial cannabinoids and plant compounds are not psychoactive and are being studied scientifically for a wide variety of health benefits. Cannabinoids work together, synergistically creating what is known as the “entourage effect.”
Our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract Oil contains CBD, CBDa, CBDV, CBC and CBN. This is a THC-free CBD Oil, as is our Pure CBD Oil.
Our Pure CBD Oil contains CBD and its homolog cannabinoid CBDV.
To isolate compounds like CBD into a pure, viscous oil, our manufacturer puts raw plant material through several refining processes. Terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids are first separated from the cannabis plant using a CO2 extraction method to formulate our Full Spectrum CBD Oil. Then through additional refining methods the oil undergoes a winterization and distillation process to produce our Broad Spectrum CBD Oil and Pure CBD Oil.
Certain hemp products may cause users to exhibit a positive tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) drug test. THC exists in hemp plants (in trace amounts), but the legal THC limit for hemp is 0.3% or less. The risk is low, but an individual may convert cannabinoids to THC or exhibit trace (but legal) amounts of THC from consuming hemp products. If you are subject to an upcoming drug test, discuss hemp consumption and testing concerns with your health care provider before consuming hemp products.
Some drug-testing facilities test for a range of cannabinoids. The identification of these cannabinoids may yield a positive drug test. By law, you are permitted to ask the facility which cannabinoids they include in testing. Note: You do not need to supply your name when contacting a testing facility.
The expiration date for Veré CBD Oils and CBD Gummies can be found on the bottom of the bottles. The shelf life is 1.5 years.
