WHAT MAKES OUR COMPANY DIFFERENT?
All Bayou City Botanicals products are produced using Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorization and licensing for the manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and active pharmaceutical products. Each of our products is developed through a microemulsion technology-based platform. This technology transforms active compounds into Nano-sized emulsions, making them super absorbable with the body and more permeable when applied to the skin. Our proprietary hemp formulation process ensures the preservation of nearly all beneficial hemp-derived cannabinoids and terpenes, while allowing us to eliminate unwanted compounds. This process ensures that our products contain the synergistic compounds necessary to produce the “Entourage Effect,” which contributes directly to the efficacy of our CBD oil.
All of our CBD products are custom formulated by Dr. Adam Abodeely, a double board certified gastroenterologist surgeon. He has taken a unique blend of broad spectrum cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids to create unique formulas to bring relief for various issues that people deal with each and every day. Our products have been developed to enhance bioavailability and absorption based on science, and enhance interaction with each individual’s unique endocannabinoid system (ECS) using all ingredients to create synergistic effects.
Bayou City Botanicals only uses domestic, US grown hemp.
WHAT IS CBD?
There are over a hundred chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. The two most recognized are THC and CBD. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring non-psychoactive compound and is the most abundant cannabinoid in our hemp products, more than 99% pure.
CBD is one of approximately 400 compounds found in the cannabis plant which include marijuana and hemp. Unlike marijuana which contains THC which produces a feeling of being “high”, CBD from the Hemp plant contains 0-.03% THC which is not enough to produce the feeling of being “high”. All Bayou City Botanicals products contain non-detectable levels of THC.
WILL HEMP MAKE ME HIGH?
Not all hemp is the same and not all CBD is the same. True, industrial hemp, characterized by its tall stalks, is grown for its fibers, which are the strongest plant fibers in nature. Industrial hemp is also grown for its seed, which contains essential amino acids but no phytocannabinoids. This type of industrial hemp also contains very limited amounts of other synergistic compounds. Our products are made from hemp not derived from genetic industrial hemp, but rather from a unique medicinal hemp variety, therefore providing the real health benefits of medical cannabis without the psychoactive effect of THC.
WHAT IS HEMP?
Hemp, cannabis, and marijuana are often used interchangeably, confusing some consumers. Cannabis is a type of plant, while marijuana and hemp are both species of the cannabis plant. Marijuana is typically grown for its high levels of THC, the psychoactive chemical compound found in cannabis. Hemp is typically grown for its low levels of THC with the added benefits of high levels of CBD, the non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis.
WHAT DOES “FULL SPECTRUM CBD OIL” MEAN?
This term refers to pure oil extracted from the hemp plant that still contains the same cannabinoids and compounds found naturally in the hemp plant. The oil also contains many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, fiber, flavonoids, and terpenes.
WHY ARE TERPENES IMPORTANT?
Terpenes are some of the most powerful synergistic compounds found in the plant. Terpenes greatly influence the effects of the unique cannabinoids found in cannabis, and they play a key role in the way you feel. Terpenes are unique in the vast amount and diversity of terpenes present in a single plant.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF Bayou City Botanicals PRODUCTS?
Hemp CBD should be kept in a cool, dry environment. All Bayou City Botanicals products should last 18 months if stored properly. See individual product labels for shelf life.
IS HEMP OIL LEGAL?
Hemp oil can be legally purchased in all 50 states without a prescription. All of our phytocannabinoid-rich hemp products are processed from hemp grown in full compliance under section 7606 of the 2014 Federal Farm Bill and registered with the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

WHAT IS THE RETURN POLICY?

HOW DO I DOSE IT?
Everyone’s body is different so dosing is a very personalized process. We recommend starting with a low dose to make sure there are no adverse effects. You then can increase the dosage slightly until you reach the desired benefits.
DO OUR TINCTURES CONTAIN THC?
All of our tinctures are made with broad spectrum CBD oils that contain non-detectable levels of THC.
