Will CBD give me a buzz or a high?
The process by which the CBD is isolated from the marijuana plant, also eliminates the euphoria often associated with its use.
How do you measure potency?
The level or concentration of CBD in each product is referred to as its potency. Not to be confuse with efficacy, which measures the effect of the product on the patient or user. At Dr. Stern’s, like most CBD purveyors, we measure our potencies in milligrams per serving. Ask your healthcare provider if you want help with dosing related to your specific health conditions or needs. Our signature product is Dr. Stern’s CBD Oil, which is revered as one of the purest and most concentrated CBD forms available.
What are the costs per dose?
At Dr. Stern’s our mission is to make CBD’s available to everyone to make a part of their health and wellness routine. We know budget plays a role in this. That is why we are committed to providing our customers the highest concentrated CBD products at prices that are affordable. We never substitute quality for price and you will always find full efficacious concentrations of our products, never sprinkling of CBDs just to appeal to a trend.
How do I take Dr. Stern’s CBD oils?
Due to the Pharmaceutical Grade purity of our CBD hemp oils, they can be taken directly or mixed in with foods, smoothies and beverages. For maximum efficacy, we recommend placing a few drops under the tongue and holding it in your mouth for a full minute before swallowing.
How is the Hemp Grown?
Cannabis plants are bioaccumulators, meaning they pull a far range of nutrients and potential contaminants from the soil as they grow and flourish. These contaminants can be found in products that aren’t sourced from Organic hemp and aren’t tested for quality at both the source and finished product. At Dr. Stern’s we ensure this never happens by only sourcing our hemp from farms that use organic and sustainable farming methods. We make sure the hemp used as a raw material for our products is certified organic and free of any contaminants including chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides.
How is the CBD oil processed?
Our hemp is organically grown and extracted using a solvent-free CO2 process. This process ensures that our Dr. Stern’s CBD hemp oil products have only the best from nature without the least amount of impurities.
How are Dr. Stern’s CBD products tested for quality?
Extensively tested for purity at its source of origin and again after processing, the raw organic hemp that make up Dr. Stern’s CBD Oils is where the QA process starts. Our philosophy is to provide just what is essential with products that are pure, natural and efficacious. We source all our products from Organic, Non GMO Hemp and never use fillers, preservatives, additives or artificial ingredients. We believe in leaving nothing to chance. We measure twice and test over and over again. Through every part of the manufacture and packaging of Dr. Stern’s CBD products, extensive QA & QC tests are conducted.

Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR)
By hitting a sample with a beam of infrared light, this test is able to validate the authenticity and purity of a sample of raw organic hemp used in the creation of Dr. Stern’s CBD oils.This test is also used to differentiate the potency between different batches of Hemp.
Inductively Coupled Plasma Spectrometry (ICP)

Using a high intensity flame and a ultra sensitive meter, this test can measure the amount of each constituent present in a sample down to parts per million.
Our products have been tested by independent labs and with certified passing results for QA tests including: Microbiological, Aerobic count, coliforms, enterobacteria, E coli count, yeast and mold, pseudomonas, salmonella, Pesticides/carbamates, Heavy metals, organophosphates and
a cannabinoid potency test.
