WHAT IS CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is one of the most well known of 100+ different phytochemicals found in the cannabis plant, known as phytocannabinoids. CBD is a sticky resin found concentrated in the trichomes of the hemp plant. Trichomes are glandular structures that protect the plant from heat and ultraviolet radiation. Both marijuana and hemp can contain CBD. Mowellens products are derived from hemp and are non-psychoactive, meaning they will not get you high.
WHAT ARE TERPENES?
Terpenes are organic compounds found in all of earth’s flora, better known as aroma and taste molecules (for example, they make a lemon smell like a lemon). Cannabis sativa L. plants contain 120 identified terpene compounds but only a few of these substances appear in amounts substantial enough to be noteworthy. Like cannabinoids, terpenes exist within the resin or trichomes of the plant. They’ve already been used medicinally for centuries, and in recent years, researchers believe that terpenes are equally as therapeutic as CBD. The interaction between terpenes and cannabinoids produce unique synergies and properties. This is why CBD oils vary in how they work with your body.
By using low extraction temperatures and cryoextraction techniques, we preserve the delicate terpenes and are able to craft potent profiles, consisting of various terpene molecules. This is another key differentiator of our products and why incredible results are achieved.
CAN CBD GET YOU HIGH?
No. Our products contain less than 0.3% THC (the mind-altering component of cannabis) and some are THC free. We source our CBD from industrial hemp, where advanced technology allows for the removal of any trace amounts of THC without disturbing the other naturally synergistic compounds. It is also important to note that CBD has a 10-fold higher permeability through the skin compared to that of THC.
EXPLAIN HEMP VS MARIJUANA?
Even though hemp and marijuana come from the same genus of Cannabis, the genetic profile of the plants is what makes them unique and different. Hemp contains less than .3% THC while marijuana contains more than .3% THC. THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis.
WHERE IS YOUR HEMP GROWN?
Our hemp is grown on our regenerative agriculture farms in New York and California. All hemp is grown outdoors in nutrient rich soil using zero pesticides, herbicides or synthetic chemicals. This results in incredible molecular profiles of hemp extract and products with results you can see and feel.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS LAB TESTED?
All Mowellens products have been lab tested by third party laboratories for hemp profile (cannabinoids and terpenes), residual solvents, pesticides, mold, heavy metals and microbials.
IS HEMP SEED OIL THE SAME AS CBD OIL?
CBD, hemp-derived CBD oil, hemp extract, and CBD oil are often used interchangeably in the industry, making it difficult to understand for the introductory consumer. All of the above matrices contain CBD oil. Hemp seed oil is different. Derived from hemp seeds (not the resin), hemp seed oil does not contain CBD, cannabidiol. Hemp seed oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, and therefore hemp seed oil does not contain the same terpenes and cannabinoids. Our hemp extract is a full plant extraction, high in CBD, cannabidiol.
EXPLAIN LIT FROM WITHIN VS INNER PEACE?
Inner Peace – A modern evolution in CBD, this nano CBD blend is formulated for fast relief from everyday stressors to put your body and mind at ease. Whether calming the senses for pause, focused productivity, or preparing for deep rest, nano CBD is supercharged to work quickly, allowing you to take less and feel more. Inner Peace dissolves in water, contains zero THC, and will not alter the taste of foods or beverages. Start small with 3 drops 1 – 3 times daily. Nano CBD amplifies results making 1mg feel like 10mg in the body. Results should be felt within 30 minutes with a slight edge taken off. This product is unlike others on the market and unique to Mowellens.
Lit From Within – Formulated to ease the effects of stress, lessen feelings of anxiety, and sharpen focus, Lit From Within is a superfood oil blend with full spectrum hemp extract, high in CBD, and powerful terpenes phytol and myrcene. The robust cornucopia of cannabinoids and terpenes make this blend nutritious while the synergistic effects of the molecules allow you to receive the full plant properties. You will still only need 3 – 7 drops for 3 – 7mg.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CBD IN SKINCARE?
The many different cells contained in all three layers of skin, epidermis (outermost protective layer), dermis (second layer of nerves, capillaries, and oil glands), and hypodermis (deepest layer of fat, connective tissue, and water) work together in an intertwined and complex yet balanced neuro-immuno-endocrine network that is regulated by the endocannabinoid system (ECS). It is here the ECS engages in a homeostatic process called cutaneous cannabinoid (“c[ut]annabinoid”) signaling. This signaling mechanism promotes healthy skin renewal and barrier function.
A 2019 in vitro study by Italian scientists in Phytotherapy Research found that the anti-inflammatory impact of cannabis oil and in particular compounds other than CBD isolate, down regulated several genes involved in wound healing and skin inflammation.
CBD is rich in antioxidant properties and is a naturally high source of vitamins A, D, E and essential fatty acids (omega 3 and 6), which all work to enhance skin health and overall youthfulness.
A 2015 study, found that cannabidiol [CBD] exerted anti-acne effects by normalizing excessive sebaceous lipid production (sebum or oil), lessening the spread and alleviating inflammation.
WILL YOUR PRODUCTS SHOW ON A DRUG TEST?
It is important to note that CBD is not what is tested for on a drug test. Rather, THC is the psychoactive molecule and analyte of inquiry on a drug test.
Inner Peace is our ingestible product which contains 0% THC and therefore is THC-free. You will not fail a drug test from taking Inner Peace.
Lit From Within and The Keeper’s Stash contain full spectrum hemp extract with under 0.3% THC. While detection on a drug test would have odds similar to winning the lottery, the way we metabolize THC varies from person to person depending on height, weight, BMI, activity level, genetics, and more. If you are in a position where drug testing is required, we would recommend Inner Peace, a THC-free product.
Even with daily usage, skincare products will not show on a drug test.
IS THE MILKY COLOR NORMAL FOR INNER PEACE?
This is perfectly normal for the Inner Peace. It is a nano blended CBD oil suspended in water. The milky color is exactly how it should look. Most other oils are full spectrum oils suspended in an olive, hemp, or coconut oil. Therefore, they have a clear(er) natural oil look.

WHICH CANNABINOIDS ARE FOUND IN YOUR PRODUCTS?
While CBD is the most frequently discussed cannabinoid due to the high concentration in the plant, other cannabinoids in our products impact their effectiveness and have important and developing roles in the power and potential of the plant.
CBG – cannabigerol, similar affects to CBD but has demonstrated a strong ability to bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors
CBN – cannabinol, similar affects but CBN may have very mild psychoactive effects
CBC – cannabichromine – weak affinity for cannabinoid receptors like CB1 and CB2 and exploring it’s impact on pain, brain function, and acne.
EXPLAIN FULL SPECTRUM, BROAD SPECTRUM, & ISOLATE?
An oil is considered a full spectrum hemp extract when a cornucopia of phytochemicals, cannabinoids and terpenes, are present in the hemp oil. They molecules work harmoniously to magnify their therapeutic properties (this is often referred to as the “entourage effect”). The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health. By keeping extraction temperatures low we are able to achieve a hemp extract rich in Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), Cannabichromene (CBC), as well as terpenes, flavonoids, and essential amino acids.
An oil is considered a broad spectrum hemp extract when a cornucopia of phytochemicals, cannabinoids and terpenes, are present in the hemp oil, but THC has been completely removed.
CBD is called CBD isolate or isolate when CBD is the only molecule present.
Mowellens uses all three types of CBD containing extracts depending on the desired effect of the skincare or ingestible product. Our ability to craft potent profiles, consisting of various molecules, is one key differentiator of our products and why incredible results are achieved.
WHAT IS THE BEST PRODUCT FOR SOMEONE NEW TO CBD?
Inner Peace is a great place to start. Inner Peace is a water-soluble nano CBD product. This means it is zero THC, flavorless, and goes great with all beverages, foods, etc. It is supercharged meaning extremely bioavailable and therefore you only need to take 1-2 drops for 10-20mg per serving. It is good to start with a microdose in order to make the most of your product. Work your way up to taking more as needed to ease the stresses of daily life. Can be taken multiple times per day without issue.
