What are Cannabinoids?
CBD is short for cannabidiol, is one of a class of naturally-occurring compounds called phytocannabinoids, which are found in all plant life, but are found in higher concentrations in the Sativa plant. The most common ones are CBD and THC, they’re in the same cannabinoid family but there are more than 100 different cannabinoids. CBD is associated with the medicinal and healing properties of the plant that does not produce a high, unlike its distant cousin THC which produces the psychoactive high.
Will CBD get me high?
No, our full spectrum tinctures contain <0.3% THC. CBD is a derivative of cannabis, but it’s a non-psychoactive substance unlike THC, the effects come without the psychoactive effect.
Is CBD right for me?
CBD has been traditionally used to ease pain, anxiety, sleeplessness and more. If you’re uncertain whether CBD is a good option for you, it’s always best to ask your medical professional or healthcare provider.
Are there side effects to CBD?
Everyone’s bodies are unique and different, just like anything else there could be side effects but CBD is often well-tolerated by many people. CBD can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other medications you're taking, we suggest consulting with your medical professional before taking CBD.
Adaptogens & Supplements
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are specific herbs, mushrooms, and plants containing compounds that are uniquely beneficial to our health. Globally, they have been used as medicine for centuries. These botanicals help our bodies react and recover from physical, mental, or biological stress. They are thought to stimulate the body's stress-protection response and can help balance your natural equilibrium. They may support other health issues like pain, digestion, insomnia, immunity, and more. Adaptogens 'adapt' their function to your body's individual needs and improve your overall sense of wellbeing.
What’s Lion’s Mane?
Lion’s mane mushrooms are large, shaggy, white mushrooms that resemble—you guessed it—a lion’s mane. Some refer to it as “the Smart Mushroom” because they contain bioactive substances that benefit the body; especially the brain, heart and gut. Lion's Mane is believed to support focus, mental clarity, memory, and can act as a natural energy booster. Lion’s Mane has been shown to improve immune function, be beneficial in treating strong feelings of worry and sadness, and has positive effects on cognitive health.
Reshi mushrooms are fan-shaped, shiny, and dark red or brown. It is a fungus that grows in various hot and humid locations in Asia.

Reishi is one of the most commonly-used adaptogenic mushrooms because it is found to be greatly beneficial to holistic wellness. Rich with minerals & bioactive compounds, Reishi has been used to boost the immune system, relieve stress and anxiety, soothe inflammation, improve sleep and help restore balance.
Cordyceps mushrooms are skinny, bright orange or brown mushrooms. Known as “the Olympic Mushroom,” cordyceps have been used in Eastern medicine to reduce fatigue, boost strength and enhance sex drive. Cordyceps are thought to increase the body’s production of the molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which increases cellular oxygen absorption, and is essential for delivering energy to the muscles. This adaptogenic mushroom works to support your adrenal glands and helps your body produce and maintain consistent energy levels. Overall, it might improve the flow of oxygen throughout the body, especially during exercise.
Ashwagandha is a popular herb used in Ayurveda (an alternative medicine system with historical roots in India) for thousands of years. The evergreen shrub is native to India, the Middle East and parts of Africa. Ashwagandha contains chemicals that might help calm the brain, support cognitive function, regulate cortisol levels, and support the immune system—a traditionally-used remedy for easing stress and balancing moods. Ashwagandha has been known to rejuvenate the body in times of high stress, extreme fatigue, mental congestion, and anxiety.
Passionflower is considered a nervine herb, i.e. plants that offer support to the brain and nervous system.* Passionflower is a climbing vine with white & purple flowers, native to Central & South America. Native Americans used passionflower to treat a variety of conditions, including anxiousness, insomnia, pain and restlessness.
Melatonin is an ancient molecule that can be traced back to the origin of life. Melatonin is a natural hormone found in plants and animals that plays a role in restful sleep. The production and release of melatonin in the brain is connected to time of day, increasing when it's dark and decreasing when it's light. Your natural melatonin production declines with age.
Coenzyme Q10 (in short: CoQ10) is naturally-produced that can also be found in various foods. CoQ10 acts as an antioxidant, which protects cells from damage and plays an important part in the metabolism. As you get older, CoQ10 levels decline, decreasing the body's ability to manage inflammation and oxidative stress effectively.
Can you take the tinctures on a daily basis?
Our tinctures are safe to take on a daily basis, but keep in mind that everyone’s tolerance is different. Adaptogenic mushrooms need to be consumed consistently in mild to moderate doses (depending on potency) in order to feel noticeable effects. Depending on your biology, you could see improvement in as little as a week. The longer you use it, the more benefits you’re likely to experience. We can’t wait for you to feel the Love Herb Co difference.
We highly recommend consulting with your medical professional or healthcare provider if you have any concerns.
How much CBD should I take per day?
As with all health-related information, usage and effects may vary from person to person. The dosing of CBD is dependent on many factors, such as your overall health, medications, nutritional status, and more. Talk to your doctor if you have concerns!
Our tincture bottles have 30 ml which is roughly 30 servings (each serving has 33mg).They are a very safe dosing range, and we highly suggest that you start low and go slow. In most cases, we recommend 1ml per day (1 full dropper). Some people prefer less, and some can tolerate more. It’s important to pay attention to how you’re feeling and to monitor your personal health.
We highly recommend consulting your medical professional or qualified healthcare provider.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
In other words, the whole enchilada. Love Herb Co products are full-spectrum—meaning, we utilize the whole plant to extract all beneficial compounds naturally found in the cannabis plant including trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3%) and other beneficial cannabinoids. We take a more holistic view of how plant parts work together. Full spectrum CBD functions more effectively in our bodies and retains more of the plant’s active ingredients. It has been scientifically proven that CBD works better when other cannabinoids are present.
