  • Are Island products third-party tested?
    After each harvest, we send multiple batches of our plants to a third-party testing facility for heavy metal, mold, and fungus testing. We also compare our in-house GCMS concentration results to annual third-party results to ensure proper readings.
  • What plants do you grow at the farm?
    We aim to have as many of our plants grow on-site as possible. Each year we add more and more plant species to our farm! Visit our Herbal Remedies Page to learn more about what herbs we are growing this season.
  • How do you source ingredients?
    We work very hard to find the cleanest and most reliable ingredients. This includes researching where it's grown, what techniques are used for processing, making sure the ingredients are certified organic, and ensuring facilities are following GMP regulations and sustainable sourcing practices. We also request third-party test results to confirm concentration and sterility.
  • Do you grow organically?
    We believe high-quality natural medicine should come from clean ingredients. Our growing practices go beyond organic; we are proud to be 100% natural. To learn more about how we practice natural growing, visit the Our Farming Practices page.
  • What is CBD?
    CBD is one of the more common cannabinoids found in many cannabis varieties. It is non-psychoactive (won't create a "high" feeling) in a standard dose. Some medicinal properties of CBD include anti-anxiety, reducing nausea, decreasing spasms and seizures, muscle relaxant, anti-microbial, nervous system protectant, improving circulation, relieving skin conditions, anti-inflammatory, arthritis relief, and antioxidant effects, among many others.
  • Does CBD become less effective?
    No, CBD does not become less effective, however, some people may develop a slight tolerance when using CBD daily over a long period of time. You may need to increase your dose slightly after a few months if the starting dose no longer provides the desired effects.
  • Can CBD be used with pharmaceutical medications?
    Yes, it can be safely used with most pharmaceuticals. Please consult with your primary physician or specialist if you are currently taking any medications. Standard dosing typically does not raise concern.
  • Can CBD be used for sleep?
    Yes, CBD can help your body reach a higher state of mental and physical relaxation for better sleep. When taken regularly, CBD can help regulate your circadian rhythm. CBD alone does not have a sedative effect or make you fall asleep.
  • Does CBD help with inflammation?
    Yes, CBD reduces inflammation and related symptoms. CBD works with the endocannabinoid system and at the cellular level to decrease an overactive immune system and other sources of inflammation.
  • What is THC?
    THC is tetrahydrocannabinol, the most studied psychoactive cannabinoid most commonly found in cannabis.It is psychoactive in larger doses and has many medicinal uses. Delta-9 THC is the most commonly used form of THC.

    There are many ways to use cannabis products! To learn more about the modes of administration that will best suit your needs, visit our Cannabis Page.
  • Will CBD interfere with THC or vise versa?
    Yes, CBD will slightly lessen the psychoactive effects of THC. This creates a more balanced high feeling. The amount of moderation depends on individual body chemistry. CBD and THC do not interfere with each other in regards to biochemical/physiological activity in your body. Using CBD and THC together is more effective for treating many conditions, syndromes, and diseases. This is why it's important to use full spectrum products.
  • Why do I get anxiety when using THC?
    Some people may experience anxiety or paranoia as a side effect of THC. We recommend using a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio of THC to CBD. CBD helps reduce symptoms of THC-induced anxiety by reducing the cortisol response and blocking the part of the receptors that THC may use to activate anxiety. Many people find that using products/strains that have a THC:CBD ratio and are on the sedative side can help to combat anxiety. If you would like more information or a personalized dosing plan, visit the Schedule a Consultation page.
  • Does THC have drug interactions?
    Yes, THC has the potential to interact with some drugs, the most notable being Warfarin and anti-seizure medications. If you are taking any medications please consult with your primary healthcare provider before using cannabis products.
