MORE ABOUT SOAR™
WHY SHOULD I BUY SOAR™ CBD PRODUCTS?
Like you, we are passionate about health and wellbeing. We believe that we are all at our best when we are in tune with our bodies and making the most of every moment, every day. We use only organic ingredients and have gone to great lengths to ensure that our products are pure, clean and satisfy all state and federal requirements. We’ve built a CBD brand for active minds and bodies because we know how much a troubling pain, lack of sleep, or a little self-doubt can hold us back.
WHERE IS SOAR™ BASED?
We are located in the beautiful state of Minnesota. We have a lot of lakes (many more than 10,000, by the way). But more importantly, we also have miles and miles of trails, mountains, rivers, powerful winters, and glorious summers. Minnesotans are known for our active lifestyles and our open minds. SOAR™ is the perfect CBD brand to be based in our amazing state.
CBD AND HOW IT WORKS
WHAT IS CBD?
CBD occurs naturally in the leaves, stalks, and resinous flowers of the cannabis plant. It is just one of over a hundred different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Varieties of cannabis with high concentrations of CBD are classified as hemp. SOAR™ uses only hemp-derived CBD in our products.”
WHAT EXACTLY IS A CANNABINOID?
Cannabinoids are fatty compounds vital to our immune and central nervous systems. Generally, they can be found in two forms: Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids made by a plant, and Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids made by our body. Although a number of plants produce phytocannabinoids, Cannabis has proven to be a valuable resource for these important and effective compounds.
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS) AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is an infrastructure in your body (similar to your nervous or lymphatic infrastructures) that produces your Endocannabinoids, and then dissolves. It utilizes those Endocannabinoids (and any you have ingested or applied to your body) to regulate various bodily functions including, but not limited to, sleep, appetite, mood, pain, stress, inflammation and memory.
HOW DOES CBD WORK? HOW DOES IT AFFECT MY BODY?
CBD affects the body by triggering certain receptors of the Endocannabinoid System within your brain and nervous system. In doing so, CBD can support the natural neurotransmitters in our bodies that help with pain relief, resolve inflammation, and bind to a receptor that triggers serotonin release leading to a reduction in stress and anxiousness.
IS CBD LEGAL?
Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp, and its derivatives like CBD, from the Controlled Substances Act, paving the way for the wholly legal cultivation, possession, sale and distribution of the hemp plant.
WILL CBD GET ME HIGH? IS CBD A PSYCHOATIVE?
No. You will not get “high” or experience psychoactive effects using CBD. It is one of many naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is another naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis plant and is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive “high”.
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. Hemp plants contain less than 0.3% THC and are often rich in CBD. This higher concentration of CBD, and the absence of THC make hemp perfect for SOAR™.
WILL CBD SHOW UP IN DRUG TESTING?
Our SOAR™ CBD contains less than 0.3% THC, which is the banned compound of the cannabis plant that most tests look for. However, these trace amounts may still appear on some tests. While CBD is a legal substance, some companies are still maintaining a strict line on CBD, hemp and cannabis. We have no doubt this will change, yet it is best to check with your employer, union, or organization prior to using.
CBD ISOLATE v. BROAD SPECTRUM CBD v. FULL SPECTRUM CBD?
All of these variations of CBD are extracts from the hemp plant. They all contain CBD. What makes them different is the number of naturally-occurring phytochemicals they contain in addition to CBD. You can think of them as levels of filtration. SOAR™ uses Full-Spectrum CBD in the Healing Stick, Broad Spectrum CBD in the Daily Gel Caps, and CBD Isolate in the Patches, Gummies and Lip Balm.
CBD Isolate is CBD in its purest form. It’s the refined version of CBD. Additional cannabinoids, terpenes or plant components found in non-isolate are removed through filtration and distillation to leave a fine, tasteless powder.
Broad Spectrum CBD retains all of the additional phytochemicals naturally found in the plant, EXCEPT for THC. It still provides the entourage effect, yet without any trace of THC.
Full-Spectrum CBD is the rawest form of CBD extraction. It includes CBD and all other phytochemicals extracted from the hemp plant, including trace levels of THC. Full-spectrum CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC to be legal.
SUGGESTED USE OF CBD
WHAT SOAR™ CBD PRODUCTS SHOULD I USE?
Everyone’s Endocannabinoid System is different. And individual CBD users will naturally have their own preferences as to the method of delivery. Experimentation and exploration are key to figuring out what works best for you.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
As with anything to do with your mind and body, it’s best to start slow. It’s your body and you know it best.
With our SOAR™ ingestibles, start with small amounts taken over the course of a day. Use the same dose and ratio for several days. Don’t rush things. Let your body adjust and react to the CBD. If necessary, adjust the amounts gradually. Cannabis compounds have biphasic properties, which means that low and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. Small doses tend to stimulate; large doses sedate.
You can use our SOAR™ CBD topicals as regularly as you like, and you should use them when you feel pain, inflammation or discomfort.
CAN I TAKE CBD WITH OTHER MEDICATIONS OR IF I AM PREGNANT OR NURSING?
CBD can have powerful effects on your mind and body. Therefore, if you are currently on medication, pregnant or nursing, it is best to check with your doctor prior to use.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY SOAR™ PRODUCTS?
We’ve made our SOAR™ CBD products to be easy to store and use. However, like anything you put in or on your body, we’d suggest you keep them in a dry, cool area with no direct exposure to constant light or excessive heat.
DO CBD PRODUCTS EXPIRE?
Our products are made with organic ingredients and naturally occurring CBD. Therefore, they all have a shelf life. THE SOAR™ Relief Realized Healing Stick, SOAR™ Body Bettered Soothing Patch, and SOAR™ Time Taken Daily Gel Caps have a shelf life of 2 years. THE SOAR™ Day Delighted Wellness Gummies should be consumed within 30 days of opening.
IS IT OK FOR CHILDREN TO USE SOAR™ CBD PRODUCTS?
Children’s bodies react differently than adults'. And it is typically harder to assess the efficacy of treatments or supplements, as children find it more difficult to articulate how their body feels or is reacting to something. For these reasons, we’d suggest consulting your doctor before giving any SOAR™ CBD product to your child.
PURITY, CLEANLINESS AND QUALITY CONTROL
ARE SOAR™ CBD PRODUCTS THIRD-PARTY TESTED?

WHAT IS A GMP CERTIFIED MANUFACTURING FACILITY?
GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which are regulated and certified by the FDA. The regulations and practices imposed by the FDA ensure that products manufactured for human consumption are completely 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 manufacture
WHAT DOES A LEVEL 7 CLEANROOM CLASSIFICATION MEAN?
A Level 7 Cleanroom Classification means that the space in which our SOAR™ products are manufactured, is clean and clear of contaminants. It means the space uses High Efficiency Penetration Air (HEPA) Filtration and requires the use of face masks, hair and beard covers, gloves, and coveralls made from nonwoven fabrics to prevent contamination from shedding material fibers.

TRAVELING WITH SOAR™ CBD PRODUCTS
WILL CBD PASS SECURITY AT DOMESTIC AIRPORTS?
The TSA is a federally regulated body, and therefore falls under federal jurisdiction. CBD is legal at the federal level and should therefore pose no significant risk while traveling. The TSA recently updated its policy in regard to medical cannabis and products containing no THC. You can read the most recent update here.
CAN I TRAVEL INTERNATIONALLY WITH SOAR™ CBD
Many countries are yet to reassess their classification of hemp and CBD. Some exist in a gray area. A few are quite clear in their classification of CBD products. International flights are also subject to a different level of security and law enforcement. You should definitely check before flying internationally with any SOAR™ CBD products.
No problem, we’d love to hear from you! Just email us at hello@experienceSOAR.com
