Wellness Alternatives only sells Green Roads products because it is a pharmacist-founded company, we know how important it is to comply with FDA rules, and we know that their oversight of the CBD market will only help to distinguish our high-quality products from other brands in the marketplace.

What product and dosage is right for me?
Start with a low dosage and increase to find the homeostasis balance. Everyone is different and we cannot prescribe a dosage as mandated by the government. After 3 to 5 days of daily usage, access how you feel and adjust accordingly to find your homeostasis balance.
While most supplements have a single recommended dose, CBD is different. The amount of CBD you take depends on your doctor’s recommendations and your own research into how CBD will work for your unique needs.
As always, consult with your doctor or a healthcare professional before adding CBD to your supplement regime.

What makes Green Roads Hemp CBD so pure?
As CBD is isolated from the plant material and exits the high-pressure environment inside the extraction machine, all of the CO2 evaporates, because it’s no longer at a supercritical pressure. This leaves behind a solvent-free extract containing only the purest select phytocannabinoids and terpenes. Green Roads regularity and voluntarily has an independent lab test their products before releasing them.
What type of extraction method do you use?
To extract CBD from the hemp plant, Green Roads utilizes a process in which C02 is at a low temperature, under high pressure. This allows us to capture C02 in a liquid state and efficiently draw the CBD and terpenes from the plant material.
CBD oil CO2 extraction works extremely well because each compound in cannabis can only be extracted by CO2 at a unique pressure and temperature combination, which makes it easy to control which compounds are extracted and which are left behind.
