Our full spectrum is made up of a variety of beneficial cannabinoids including CBD, CBC, CBG and CBN.

Squeeze a full dropper under your tongue and hold for 30 seconds. Swallow and proceed with your day!
600 mg full spec hemp extract bottle = 20 mg full spec per dropper
1200 mg full spec hemp extract bottle = 40 mg full spec per dropper
Please note that every-body is different and you can take more or less than the full dropper. How and when you see the benefits of taking our extracts depends on various factors, including your weight, metabolism and own internal endocannabinoid system. We suggest starting with this amount, then using more or less depending on how you feel. Many people begin to feel a difference within a few short days, while some notice it after a few weeks. The key is to be patient, listen to your body and be consistent!
Apply to dry or irritated skin as needed. Our lotions are green tinted due to the full spectrum hemp extract. This green tint helps to mask and calm redness while moisturizing your skin. Many of our customers also choose to use these topicals for spot treating achy or sore areas!
Our lotions come in two sizes and strengths. Our 1.7 oz lotions contain 300 mg of our full spectrum hemp extract while our 4 oz lotions contain 1400 mg of our full spectrum hemp extract.
Apply to wrists and behind ears to enhance your mood. These rollers were created to promote calming, uplifting or energizing feelings to get you through your day.

Apply to affected areas for temporary relief of aches and pains of muscles and joints associated with arthritis, bruises, cramps, back pain and muscle strains. Our Glacial Glide contains 500 mg of our full spectrum hemp extract, camphor and menthol. This combination makes for an icy, soothing sensation.
Why an Extract vs. Topical?
One of the most effective ways to take CBD (or other cannabinoids) is sublingually. As previously mentioned, it is best to not only place the extract under your tongue, but to also hold it for at least 30 seconds. If you have the patience, shoot for the full 60 seconds! This allows for maximum absorption as it is absorbed through the blood vessels under the tongue rather than being broken down through your digestive system.
If you are dealing with exterior issues, we would suggest using both an extract and topical. The combination of internal and external administration will aid in keeping your internal endocannabinoid system in balance while being able to spot treat any affected areas.
Cannabinoid Crew...What Exactly Do They Do?
Our full spectrum hemp extract contains a variety of cannabinoids. The highest percentage is made up of the ever-so-popular cannabinoid CBD, but also contains CBC, CBG and CBN. So what do these cannabinoids do?
Let’s start with the basics. All vertebrates have what is called an endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is made up of receptors (CB1 and CB2) found throughout the body that work to keep your internal systems in balance and achieve homeostasis. These receptors can be found in the brain, nervous system, lungs, liver and kidneys. Where as CB2 receptors are found in the immune system and gastrointestinal system. These receptors respond to cannabinoids -- both “endogenous” ones that humans produce and “exogenous” ones that we get from plants, like cannabis.

Why Full Spectrum?
While most people have heard of the buzzword “CBD,” they don’t realize CBD is only one of many helpful cannabinoids found in cannabis. We chose to produce a full spectrum hemp extract rather than a CBD isolate or distolate because all the cannabinoids work synergistically to increase and enhance one another’s therapeutic benefits and properties. This is known as the “entourage effect.”
This is why many prefer and recommend a full spectrum product.
One misconception is that CBD oil is a magical elixir that will cure anything and everything. While we would never market our products as such (like other companies in the industry might), we have seen that they can aid people in attaining balance and a state of wellness while maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Like many, we believe in and have experienced the power of plants and their beneficial properties when it comes to health and beauty.
Another misconception is that if it comes from cannabis, it can get you high. Hidden Lake products will NOT get you high. Our products contain less that 0.3% THC. The other cannabinoids found in our full spectrum, CBD, CBC, CBG and CBN, are all non-psychoactive.
