01. What Is Charlottes Web?
Charlotte's Web is the name of the proprietary hemp genetics developed by the Stanley Brothers and is the core of CW Hemp products. All CW Hemp products include whole-plant hemp extracts from Charlotte's Web plants. The extracts contain a unique blend of cannabinoids plus terpenes and flavonoids. Cannabinoids are phyto-compounds that are produced by the hemp plant.
The Stanley Brothers developed a variety of hemp to provide health benefits without psychoactive effects. This was initially called "Hippie's Disappointment," until the Stanley Brothers met Charlotte Figi and her family. As a result of Charlotte's very positive feedback after using their extract, the Stanley Brothers renamed their proprietary hemp, Charlotte's Web.
One of the most commonly known cannabinoids in hemp is non-psychoactive cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabinoids work with the mammalian Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system to support homeostasis and health.* It exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our bodies' own endocannabinoids as well as the cannabinoids found in hemp.
Our products comply with all applicable State and Federal regulations.
02. What Is Hemp Oil?
Hemp Oil is the essential oil produced from the leaves, buds, and stem of the hemp plant. Hemp oil can be extracted by both mechanical and chemical means. In the extraction process, the oil retains a range of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found naturally in hemp. Oil that comes from only the seeds of hemp— hemp seed oil — does not include all of the same plant compounds and is primarily composed of dietary fats.
Charlotte's Web is a whole plant hemp extract with a broad spectrum of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. Phytocannabinoids are phyto-compounds produced by the hemp plant. Cannabinoids work with the mammalian Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system to support homeostasis and health.* It exists in the immune system, many organs, and the central nervous system. The ECS accepts our bodies' internal endocannabinoids as well as the phytocannabinoids found in hemp.
We ship to more than 61 Countries around the world.
03. What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids. Phytocannabinoids are chemical compounds found in hemp plants. There are over 80 different phytocannabinoids.
Research shows significant potential for phytocannabinoids to support health & wellness.* Hemp contains other beneficial phytocannabinoids
04. What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. They are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. These compounds are key players in normal immune and central nervous system functioning. There are more than 80 identified cannabinoids.
A system within the human body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has receptors that these compounds fit into, using cannabinoids to support cells and healthy immune system function, despite fluctuations in our external environment.*
Hemp produces more than 80 different phytocannabinoids naturally. Of the 80+ non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. Others include Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC) & more.
CW Hemp whole-plant extracts tap a unique assortment of hemp's phytocannabinoids, plus terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds to support the body.*
05. What is Hemp Extract?
Hemp Extract is the total amount of phytocannabinoids and plant matter. For example, The Everyday Advanced will have approximately 86 mg of Hemp Extract (all cannabinoids) per ml.
A list is included below of our oil products hemp concentration

06. Who are the Stanley Brothers?
Stanley Brothers are the founders of CW Hemp. Joel, Jesse, Jon, Jordan, Jared, Josh and Austin are seven brothers from Colorado. In 2012 they developed the genetics for Charlotte's Web, a non-psychoactive hemp plant.
In 2013, the brothers achieved global media recognition through Charlotte's ground breaking story, which was featured in Dr. Sanjay Gupta's CNN documentary WEED, as well as The View, 60 Minutes, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and many more.
07. What is the Endocannabinoid system?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within a mammal's body. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s.
Phytoannabinoids work with the mammalian Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system that helps support homeostasis and health.* This receptor system exists in the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our bodies' own endocannabinoids as well as the phytocannabinoids found in hemp.
The ECS is designed to support cells and healthy immune system function, despite fluctuations in our external environment.*
A human's endocannabinoid system affects many regions of the body, including functions of the immune system, the central nervous system (including the brain), organs, connective tissue, and glands.
The ECS supports various biological tasks, including energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, and the function of the autonomic nervous system.*
A phytocannabinoid is a compound that fits into a phytocannabinoid receptor. Hemp produces over 80 different cannabinoids that work to support the endocannabinoid system.*
CW Hemp products are whole-plant extracts that include a range of beneficial compounds found in hemp, including phytocannabinoids and other phyto-compounds (such as terpenes and flavonoids) that work to support your health.*
To support our bodies endocannabinoids, CW's natural phyto-cannabinoids can be introduced to support the ECS's major receptors, CB1 and CB2. This helps to maintain proper balance, allowing for immune system support.*
08. What is the difference between your 3 Hemp Oil products?
