How is Treadwell Farms responding to COVID-19?
Treadwell Farms employees strictly adhere to the standards for food safety in hemp products as required by state guidelines. In addition, for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have incorporated the guidelines published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in our standard operating procedures to provide our customers with the assurance that our products meet the highest quality and safety standards. At this time, for the safety and security of our team members and their families, we will have meetings by appointment only. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why does the label on my bottle look different than the one on the website?
Everyone here at Treadwell Farms believes strongly that we should adhere to state and federal guidelines when it comes to labeling. Further, we believe full transparency is the only way to conduct business. To that end, we wanted to let you know our labels have had to adapt as changes come down from the state and federal level. Some of the changes happened while we were launching our website. If you get an old label, don’t worry. The CBD hemp oil inside is exactly the same as the hemp oil in the bottles with the new labels. The only thing that has changed is what’s detailed on the label. We encourage you to review all the information on the website for the product you ordered as it has all the supplement facts and disclaimers. And as always, please review our COAs.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us.
What is hemp?
Treadwell Farms makes its Hemp Extract from high resin cannabis plants that meet the legal definition of Hemp. The legal definition is; varieties of the plant Cannabis Sativa L. which contains .3% or less THC content on a dry weight basis.
What is CBD?
CBD is a cannabinoid, which is a compound that influences a system within our bodies called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for modulating many physiological processes in the human brain and body. There have been over 200 cannabinoids that have been identified so far in the Cannabis plant. Of these plant compounds, THC and CBD have been the most researched.  CBD does not directly bind to endocannabinoid receptors in the body like THC does, but exerts its influence via other methods.
How much CBD should I take?
Scientific evidence suggests that CBD is safe even when consumed in large doses. However, it is ideal to begin with a small dose of CBD, especially if someone has little or no experience with using it. CBD has bi-phasic properties, meaning that at low doses and high doses may produce opposite effects. For example, an excessive amount of CBD could be less effective than moderate doses. Use the same product and dose for several days to see how the product affects you. Observe the effects, and adjust if necessary.
What is the Endocannabinoid System(ECS)?
This system is pervasive throughout the body and regulates many important physiologic pathways. It isn’t just humans that have it. All animals, even worms have one as well.
The ECS was discovered in 1992 when researchers injected THC (tetrahydrocannabinol- a compound from cannabis) into human subjects and tracked its influence across the body.  Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found in the brain, organs, glands, connective tissues, and immune cells. Even the mitochondria, the powerhouses of our very cells, are influenced by the endocannabinoid system.  In each part of our bodies, the ECS has different roles. But the end target is always to bring us back into balance. The ECS serves these primary functions:
Homeostasis (the maintenance of balance).

Why is the ECS helpful for so many conditions?
The endocannabinoid system is a crucial component that influences almost every aspect of how our body works. It is the widest spread receptor system we have that plays a vital role in alleviating misalignment and treating chronic conditions. The reason many people haven’t heard about the endocannabinoid system before is because of its relation to cannabis.
How are your products tested?
We quadruple test — at harvest, upon extraction, after manufacture, and upon bottling. This ensures CBD potency and purity, the quality of the cannabinoid and terpene profile and that our products are free from contaminants including pesticides, heavy metals, and all kinds of foreign matter. By the time the consumer has it in their hand, it's been tested each step of the way to make sure that it’s safe and that it is what we say it is. Consumers have full access to the COA and test results.
Why does Treadwell Farms believe in whole-plant extract?
CBD works best when with the presence of other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes from the plant. For example, THC and CBD work well in combination with one another, and both amplify one another's healing potential. The therapeutic attributes of the whole plant in combination with one another is known as the “entourage effect”. The sum is greater than its parts!
Where does Treadwell Farms make its products?
We create our artisanally crafted products in Umatilla, Florida and governed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Division of Food Safety.
