Frequently asked questions
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many naturally occurring chemical compounds found in hemp plants.
CBD is non-psychoactive which means it won’t make you high.
Where is the hemp in Upstate Alchemy's products grown and processed?
Made from hemp grown, processed, and packaged in South Carolina.
Our CBD comes from hemp grown on South Carolina farms. The hemp is then processed and packaged in a GMP compliant, FDA registered, South Carolina hemp processing facility.
What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
Hemp is defined as the Cannabis sativa L plant that has less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC. Delta-9 THC (more commonly refered to as just THC) is the cannabinoid in cannabis that results in a psychoactive effect (a "high"). Since the maximum allowable level of delta-9 THC for hemp is so low, you will not experience any psychoactive effect while consuming hemp products.
Does your product contain THC?
All Upstate Alchemy products contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, the federally legal limit.
Will I fail a drug test by taking Upstate Alchemy products?
While all Upstate Alchemy products contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC, it is important to note that high dosage Full Spectrum Hemp Extract products taken daily for long periods increase the potential to fail a drug test.
Will I get high on Upstate Alchemy products?
What does Full Spectrum Hemp Extract mean?
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract contains everything the plant has to offer, including the "Full Spectrum" of cannabinoids. This includes Delta-9 THC in trace amounts. All products made from Full Spectrum Hemp Extract will contain trace Delta-9 THC levels of less than 0.3% (the federal legal limit).
What does Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract mean?
What is the difference between Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum?
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within a mammal’s body (this includes you and your pets). These receptors work with cannabinoids made by the body, and those made by plants such as hemp. The ECS helps keep the body’s internal systems regulated and in balance creating homeostasis.
What is homeostasis?
Homeostasis is any process that living things use to maintain stable conditions. When you hear homeostasis think "Balance" or "Equilibrium".
What is Upstate Alchemy’s testing policy?
All Upstate Alchemy products are fully tested by an independent ISO certified testing facility.
Upstate Alchemy’s products have been tested multiple times from seed to sale!
Prior to harvest, at the request of our South Carolina farmers, Cannabinoid potency, pesticide, and heavy metal testing are completed by an independent laboratory.
Our processing partner visits the farm and retreives their own sample before accepting shipment of any hemp biomass (plant material). That sample is tested for cannabinoid potency, pesticides, heavy metals, and microbial contamination.
After receiving the hemp biomass and extracting the full spectrum oil (sometimes referred to as "crude"), the facility submits a sample for cannabinoid potency, heavy metal, residual solvent, microbial and mycotoxin testing by an independent laboratory.
Once Upstate Alchemy’s products are packaged, they are submitted for cannabinoid potency and microbial testing by an independent laboratory. We make the resulting lab sheet available to all consumers on our website on the Quality page.
Our SC grown, processed, and packaged hemp is tested at least 4 times from seed to sale to ensure the purest and highest quality hemp CBD products available.
