Hummingbird Botanicals Beginnings...

Our founders are Master Herbalists, Healers, and Clinicians. They have over 30 years of experience working with medicinal plants in a clinical setting.  

A few years ago patients started asking questions about hemp and CBD. Specifically, patients wanted to know where to buy clean high quality CBD products.

At the time, there weren't many quality hemp products available. Based on this they launched Hummingbird Botanicals to provide a trusted source of clean, potent, effective hemp products.

In addition to providing the best hemp products they also wanted to create a better world that would support their love for plants and the earth. From this was born the company's three core truths.

Our three core truths are: We love the Planet, Plants, and People! We want to be present in the world and make a positive change. We want to see our Planet restored to balance, our Plants thriving with clean air and water, and People empowered through health and wellness. Will you join us on this journey?

Core Value 1: Plants


We asked ourselves, as healers and herbalists, how could we use our knowledge and skills to help transform the world? Hemp was the answer. We strongly believe that hemp is a plant that has the power to positively impact our lives and our planet.  

Plants are an essential part of our lives. We use them in our practice and in our lives for every ailment we have. They have truly transformed us on so many levels and we hope that you can begin to experience some of this healing plant goodness as well.

Core Value 2: Planet


Most people agree that our planet is in trouble. Between Climate Change and pollution, the globe is becoming less hospitable to life. Hemp can help change this paradigm. This extraordinary plant is fast growing, produces lots of oxygen, and sequesters carbon. How? Hemp is a renewable resource in every sense of the word. It can be used for textiles, paper, animal feed, food for people (hemp seed), rope, building materials (hempcrete), and it can even be used to make biodegradable plastics.

Since we only use the finest hemp flower to make our CBD Oil, the rest of the plant is used for these other purposes. Hemp can change the nature of how we coexist on the planet. Please support the use of Hemp to change the world and to feel better.  

Core Value 3: People


People in modern times are overworked and stressed. As a species we have lost our connection to our environment and have lost our connection to ourselves and each other. We have an intrinsic need for nourishment, relaxation, and connection.

The Endocannabonoid system (ECS) helps the body adapt to stress in a positive way. Some people have even called CBD the “great adaptogen”. Adaptogens are herbs that help the body adapt to stress in a healthy manner. This alone can help with the relaxation necessary to deal with the stress provided by modern life.

Let’s be honest, CBD can’t directly help you feel more connection to the planet or other people. However, it can help you feel healthier and less stressed. This does, allow for the exploration of connection and creativity. Re-member connection!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is CBD?

CBD is short for Cannabidiol. This compound is found in plants belonging to the genus cannabis. This plant family includes both Hemp and Marijuana. Marijuana contains CBD, but it also contains high amounts of THC, a psychoactive compound. Many people want the benefits of CBD without the “high” caused by THC. This is where Hemp shines.
 
Hemp is a plant that contains high amounts of CBD but only trace amounts of THC. By law Hemp must contain .3% or less THC which makes it non-psychoactive. This allows us to bring this wonderful dietary supplement to you legally.

Q. How does CBD work?

Cannabidiol (CBD) works by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). What is that? The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a network of receptors throughout the human body that interacts with naturally occurring cannabinoids in the body. Our bodies already produce these compounds in small amounts. By supplementing the body’s with Hemp derived cannabinoids, we are able to create a stronger effect upon the ECS.

Nature has deemed these compounds important to our overall wellbeing, so we do too. Research is continuing to develop on how exactly the endocannabinoid system (ECS) works but the current understanding is that it helps the body maintain homeostasis.

Q. What are the health benefits of CBD?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that we do not make any health claims with our product. We do this in good faith because health supplements are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease. With that said, some people have reported of a sense of calm, relief of certain kinds of pain, and overall improved wellbeing.  

We recommend that you do your own research on Hemp derived CBD and read our customer reviews to decide if our product is right for you.

Q. Why is our CBD superior?

Our CBD is the best for several reasons. To begin with, we are a team of master herbalists & healers with over 50 years of experience in natural medicine. This level of knowledge gives us a holistic understanding of CBD oil that other companies lack. We understand how this product works and what formulations make it safe and effective.

We use only USDA Organic Hemp to make our Full Spectrum Extract. Having clean, high quality plant material to start with makes a cleaner and more potent final product. We can also trace our product from seed to shelf. Every step of the process is tracked and controlled to bring you the strongest and safest product. Please visit our quality database to see our test results.

Our Cannabinoid extraction process uses the same principles that have been used in herbalism for centuries. We use a mixture of ethanol (grain alcohol/liquor) and water to cleanly and gently extract the cannabinoids from our hemp plants. This creates a Full Spectrum product with high levels of multiple phytocannabinoids as well as beneficial terpenes and flavonoids that are not damaged by harmful solvents or high pressure Co2. This type of extract is more biologically active and effective then CBD alone. This has been shown through scientific research and is termed the “entourage” effect.

Our Hemp Extract is mixed with Organic MCT Oil to create increased absorption and to give you an extra boost of energy.

Q. Which Product Should I Buy and What Dosage Should I Take?

We offer an unflavored and a peppermint version of our tinctures. Unflavored will have a “hempy” taste, so if you don’t like that flavor make sure to order peppermint.

Our products also have suggested serving sizes on the packaging to help you determine your starting point. We recommend that you start small to see how your body’s unique chemistry responds to our product. The 350mg tincture is a perfect starting place. Take the recommended serving size for 4-6 weeks. If you feel like you need a higher dosage after that time period increase your serving size or move up to our 750mg tincture.

As with any dietary supplement, make sure to take the full daily does every day for the best effectiveness.

Q. Does CBD Have Side Effects?

For most people CBD is well tolerated and is generally safe. As with all dietary supplements, individuals will react differently, and some individuals may have adverse reactions. CBD may interact with certain medications and may alter the metabolism of prescription drugs. Again, as with any dietary supplement consult your physician before use if you are pregnant, nursing, have or think you may have a medical condition, or if you are taking any medications.
