Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

American Made Pharmaceutical Grade Hemp Products

Yes! Under the 2014  and the recently passed 2018 Farm Bill, CBD derived from Hemp, that has less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, is federally legal. Our products comply within these guidelines.  We also offer THC-Free Isolate CBD Oil for an alternative option.

All of our products are manufactured in a FDA registered cGMP compliant facility, are produced from 100% non-GMO Domestic Hemp, grown to organic standards and have been tested for contaminants such as pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals and mold.  Our industry leading 3rd party testing procedure is performed on every final product batch and is critical to confirm accuracy in potency information and to check for residual solvents, terpenes and cannabinoid content. Our Certificates of Analysis are available on our website.

All of our products are made from organic, non-GMO, American cultivated hemp.

We utilize super critical CO2 extraction for all of our hemp CBD Oil products. CO2 extraction is considered the cleanest extraction method resulting in a pure solvent free product.

NO! All of our hemp is sourced from American farmers practicing organic standards.

No – our full-spectrum hemp extract is made from organic industrial hemp which contains only legal trace amounts of THC (less than O.3%). These amounts are so small there is no psychoactive effect. We also offer THC-Free Isolate CBD Oil for an alternative option.

There is good literature written to this effect and we implore you to do your own due diligence.  With that said, all of Safe Harbour Wellness’s products meet the federal legal limit of < 0.3% THC and some are THC-FREE.

CBD is not a drug and although unlikely, consuming CBD may cause a positive drug test.  In order to err on the side of caution, if drug testing is a concern, we recommend utilizing one of our “Isolate” products as they are THC-FREE compared to the legal trace amounts found within our Full-Spectrum CBD Oil.  However, we cannot guarantee you will pass a drug test after consuming CBD products; even if they are labeled THC-FREE.

Drug tests look for elevated levels of THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis.  The drug test identifies if one’s THC level is above or below a particular threshold.  If THC is detected at amounts above the laboratory’s threshold, the test is considered positive.  In theory, one could use enough hemp extract and therefore consume enough THC to surpass the laboratory’s threshold and trigger a true positive, but it would be highly unlikely, difficult and very expensive.

Unfortunately, there is no “perfect dose” of CBD oil / hemp extract that one can consume to ensure THC levels remain below the THC threshold in a drug screen.  The manner in which an individual metabolizes THC is highly individualized and depends on many variables, including dose, body composition, activity level, duration of use, etc.

However, the most commonly used drug tests, urine and saliva immunoassay tests, are widely utilized, but are not very specific.  This means they can confuse one molecule for another, especially when they look alike.  This can happen with CBD and THC, which would trigger a FALSE positive.

Should you receive a positive result on a urine or saliva drug screen, ask for a more specific test to be performed.  This secondary test is called a confirmatory or confirmation test and can be performed with urine, saliva or blood and could also be requested as a hair test.  Confirmation tests are certainly more costly than a standard immunoassay test, but they are also much more accurate.  If using a THC-FREE  product, these should show as a true negative.  If you are using a full-spectrum product with small amounts of THC, these tests will either show as a true negative or a small level of THC. This quantification of THC will help differentiate between use of a hemp product vs use of a marijuana product.

As always, honesty and transparency with your employer and testing facility is your best defense.  Although we cannot make guarantees to outcomes, we would recommend bringing your product bottle and receipt with you to show you are taking a legal hemp derived product.

All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides. From the time our hemp oil is harvested, to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, mold and cannabinoid content.

We also use a super critical CO2 method of extraction for all of our CBD Oil Tinctures.  CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.

We welcome all questions as being of service is our passion.  Feel free to visit our contact page  with email link or email us directly at CS@SafeHarbourWellness.com.

Currently, the FDA does not permit the use of anecdotal evidence to affirm that CBD can have beneficial effects on a variety of serious conditions and diseases. There are however, many studies exploring this topic.  We encourage you to do your own due diligence, research and consult your healthcare provider in order to make an informed decision prior to using any CBD containing products.  However, we have many users who take CBD oil and report that it helps them with the challenges those conditions present.

DNA Nutrigenomics Testing

One of the key benefits of Direct to Consumer private pay for laboratory testing versus utilizing insurance, is you are able to maximize your health benefit while minimizing the potential risk of insurance companies utilizing any genetic mutations found, to negatively influence insurability or premium rates.

As Life Insurance, for example, is not covered under the GINA law, which prohibits employers and health insurers from discriminating based on genetics, utilizing insurance pay could place you in an unfavorable position. Without protections (laws) mandating the separation of genetic results from regular medical test results and clinical notes, when medical records are requested, all data is sent and thus can be used for determining coverage rates, participation, insurability, etc. However, this conundrum is easily avoidable by utilizing Direct to Consumer Private Pay for one’s Laboratory Diagnostic Testing, as one of the key benefits of Direct to Consumer Private Pay is the results are not added to a patient’s medical record(s).

Safe Harbour Wellness | Safe Harbour BioLabs never sells genetic information to 3rd parties, nor do we submit information to any insurance company since all tests are private pay.

Safe Harbour Wellness | Safe Harbour BioLabs is committed to maintaining and preserving your privacy. We possess an industry leading Privacy Protection Policy and do NOT sell or share your health information with third parties, insurance companies or others that might misuse it.

A patient’s name, birth date and genetic results is encoded by numerical encryption and their nutrigenomic report is only uploaded to our Secure HIPPA Compliant Online Laboratory Results Portal.   This secure portal requires a username and passcode to access and login credentials are only provided to the individual patient or provider that ordered the test.

A patient’s genetic information is never shared with anyone other than those trusted partners and employees who are part of the DNA test processing and analysis.  As with all health care professionals who will order and protect your medical files and results, they are bound by professional standards, including their medical licenses, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, a 1996 Federal law that restricts access to individuals’ private medical information (HIPPA).

It is our hope that our Privacy Protection Policy gives you peace of mind, knowing your genetic results are secure and the health insights provided, help you to positively impact your journey towards achieving optimal wellness.

Nutrigenomics is the study between nutrition and a person’s genes. Nutritional genomics examines and analyzes how nutrients impact our genes, how our genes impact reactions to specific nutrients, and why our bodies may be struggling with detoxing or metabolizing.

One popular reason many have turned to nutrigenomics, and understanding their genetic weaknesses, is to optimize their nutrition, creating a path to better health. As a variety of products and advertisements have expressed, men and women are genetically different, even when consuming the same nutrients. Safe Harbour Wellness takes that logic many steps further, not categorizing nutrition or health by gender or large studies, but by a patient’s genetic profile itself. Nutrigenomics can be applied to many health concerns, like recognizing high risk for certain diseases, or helping relieve chronic health issues. The results can be used to optimize your health in multiple aspects or alleviate the concerns someone may have with poor health or conditions that run in their family.

DNA testing for nutrition is simple with Safe Harbour Wellness. Our nutrigenomics test retrieves a DNA sample through swabbing the inside of the patients’ cheek. No spitting into test tubes or blood samples required. Test results should be received within 10-14 business days. Many other genetic testing companies will provide patients with test results but no test analysis or recommendation. Safe Harbour Wellness’ nutrigenomics report shares your results, descriptions of each key metabolic areas tested, analysis of your results, and dietary and supplementation recommendations based on your unique genetic blueprint.

Safe Harbour Wellness firmly believes in finding the source of a health issue and treating it, rather than simply treating the symptoms. Genetic testing for nutrition gives patients the power to take control of their own body and how it functions.  Have you considered:

  • Why your diet might not be helping you lose weight?
  • If trial and error to find the right supplements is the best use of your time and resources?
  • If there is a better way to determine why specific foods disrupt your digestion?

Eliminate the guesswork: order DNA Nutrigenomics Testing for nutrition today with Safe Harbour Wellness.
