What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of the cannabinoid called THC, which is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that gets users “high.” Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is non-psychoactive and does not cause a high. Tikva is made of full-spectrum hemp CBD which means our solutions include other important minor cannabinoids found in hemp.
What are the benefits of full-spectrum hemp derived CBD?
Often referred to as the “entourage effect,” full-spectrum hemp products contain not only CBD, but all the other minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in industrial hemp. Due to federal regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not full-spectrum hemp CBD can help with specific ailments. We do however urge everyone to research the widely available information online, where you can easily find many resources about full-spectrum hemp CBD and its possible benefits.
Not all CBD is created equal; we have science you can trust. Our products are produced to the highest standards thanks to our world class manufacturing partner, Panaxia Pharmaceutical Industries. Tikva’s science-first mentality means that we make sure each claim is validated and each product does what it says it will, so that you can have confidence in your wellness solution.

What’s the difference between full-spectrum hemp derived CBD and marijuana derived CBD?
Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (cannabis sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD extracted from hemp or marijuana is the exact same compound.
Is full-spectrum hemp derived CBD legal?
Yes, thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill all hemp derived CBD products are federally legal, however each state has varying laws regarding sales, consumption, and distribution of such products. Currently, Idaho, Ohio, South Dakota, and Nebraska have state-wide bans on any industrial hemp or cannabis products.
What extraction method does Tikva use?
Our manufacturing partner, Panaxia Pharmaceutical industries, uses non-volatile ethanol extraction to produce our full-spectrum hemp extract. Other extraction methods, such as Butane or Propane extraction can contain residual solvents that are not safe for consumption.
How does Tikva ensure consumer safety?
Tikva CBD is manufactured in strict accordance to predetermined attributes designed specifically to ensure consistent quality and that our customers receive a safe product. Tikva is not only lab tested by a third-party at the end of production, but also four times throughout the chain of production for maximum quality assurance. We test for over 80 pesticides, mold, fungi, heavy metals, and mycotoxins. We use state-of-the-art test methods and world-class equipment to ensure that our products are safe and meet predetermined product specifications. You can find a Certificate of Analysis on each product page, or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Is Tikva CBD a whole plant extract, synthetic, or an isolate?
Tikva is not a synthetic CBD or CBD isolate blend. Unlike isolate, which is exclusively CBD without any other compounds from the plant, we use a whole plant full-spectrum hemp extract that is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds.
What other cannabinoids are in Tikva CBD products?
Our full-spectrum hemp derived CBD contains high concentrations of CBD and also other beneficial cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, CBG, CBDA, and CBDV. These beneficial cannabinoids are not psychoactive and are being studied scientifically for a wide variety of health benefits. Cannabinoids work synergistically together with what is known as the entourage effect.
