More About SOAR™
Why Should You Buy SOAR™ CBD Products?
Like you, we are passionate about health and wellbeing. We believe that we are at our best when we are in tune with our bodies and making the most of every moment. We 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 based in the beautiful state of Minnesota.
Are SOAR™ Products Third-Party Tested?
All SOAR™ CBD products are third-party tested. Each product's results can be found on the product's detail page. This will give you an idea of when the product was manufactured, how it was tested, and what the results were of those tests.
What is a GMP-Certified Manufacturing Facility?
GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practices, which are regulated and certified by the FDA. These regulations and practices 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 manufacturing.
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. Our 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.
CBD and How it Works
Industrial hemp production was only legalized in the United States in 2018, so many people don’t know what CBD really is! These are the most common questions beginners have.
What actually is CBD, anyway?
CBD is arguably the most significant of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. A cannabinoid is a compound that reacts with cells on a molecular level to regulate a body’s natural endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for regulating many functions in your brain and other organs, including sleep, energy, recovery, pain, and stress.
There’s a lot more to it than that! We’ve spelled it all out for beginners in our CBD 101 guide.
Will CBD get me “high”?
No. CBD is derived from cannabis, but it’s entirely separate from the compound found in cannabis that can get you high.
The cannabinoid with psychoactive properties is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Many CBD products include trace amounts of THC, but not the products at SOAR™. We keep our products THC-free and include the powerful non-psychoactive cannabinoids from organic hemp.
Is CBD a prescription drug?
CBD is not an FDA-controlled substance, meaning you can purchase it over the counter just about anywhere. Like many supplements, it’s not highly regulated, so make sure you’re getting a product that’s third-party tested.
Is CBD legal everywhere?
Across the United States, CBD derived from industry-standard hemp is entirely legal.
The only case in which CBD might be part of a controlled substance in the United States is if the product also contains THC. Both hemp and marijuana are types of cannabis plants, and both contain CBD. Hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC to be considered legal, but marijuana contains far more THC than that. If one derives CBD from the marijuana plant, it may contain more than the legal amount of THC.
CBD from SOAR™ is THC-free and 100% legal across the country. The only factor you should note is that we currently cannot ship directly to Iowa and Idaho at this time.
Isolate, Broad Spectrum, and Full Spectrum — What’s the Difference?
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. SOAR™ uses Full Spectrum CBD in our Healing Stick, CBD Isolate in our patches and lip balm, and Broad Spectrum CBD in all our other products.
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.
Full Spectrum CBD is the rawest form of CBD post-extraction. It includes CBD and all other phytochemicals extracted from the hemp plant with trace levels of THC. Full-spectrum CBD must contain less than 0.3% THC to be legal.
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. Continue with this dose for the next several days, allowing your body to adjust and react to the CBD. Gradually shift your dosage, as necessary.
When ingested, CBD has biphasic properties, meaning low and high doses 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 CBD Be Taken With Other Medications or While Pregnant/Nursing?
CBD may have powerful effects on your mind and body. 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. 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, so they do 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™ Sleep Secured CBN, Energy Enhanced CBG, and Harmony Held Tinctures have a shelf life of 1 year. Our SOAR™ Day Delighted Wellness Gummies should be consumed within 30 days of opening.
Can Children Use SOAR™ 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. Consult with your doctor before giving any SOAR™ CBD product to your child.
