DOES FSE CONTAIN THC?
Yes, FSE is a “True” Full Spectrum Extract and contains the WHOLE PLANT with our patented proprietary process, including all cannabinoids. The Federal Farm Bill allows hemp-derived products to contain as much as 0.3% THC. Since our ReAction® products are made with FSE (Full Spectrum Extract) derived from hemp, one should always assume there are trace amounts of THC in the product. All our products contain under the federal legal limit of 0.03%. We comply with the 2018 Farm Bill Act.
DOES FSE PRODUCTS AND / OR HEMP PRODUCTS SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
Regardless of whether you use ReAction® or any other brand of CBD product (full spectrum or not), there is a slight chance these products will result in a false positive drug test. The standard blood tests used today are not advanced enough to distinguish between hemp-only based CBD products and marijuana products in the urine. The acceptable thresholds in drug testing vary depending on an employer’s pre-determined standards. So, until the drug testing industry catches up with science, I would recommend notifying your employer (or potential employer) in advance that you are taking a CBD product, which could result in a false positive. Again, you are no more likely to fail a drug test with our ReAction® products than you are with ANY CBD products.
I'M NOT COMFORTABLE USING PRODUCTS ASSOCIATED WITH MARIJUANA
CBD (and related products) and marijuana are not the same! CBD and full spectrum products like ReAction® are derived from the hemp plant – this is a natural plant that grows in nature. Marijuana is also a plant. The hemp and marijuana plants are both members of the same plant species – Cannabis. However, they are harvested differently to produce two different results. The “high” feeling that comes from marijuana use comes from a chemical in the Cannabis plant called THC. While, the marijuana plant contains high levels of THC (ranging from 10% to 30%), the hemp plant contains little or no THC – therefore it does not deliver a “high”. So, while you cannot get “high” from using the ReAction® products, you do receive the many other benefits provided by the hemp plant.
WILL I GET HIGH FROM HEMP?
No, there is not enough THC in the ReAction® products to make you feel “high”. CBD, even at extremely high doses, will not make you feel “high". There is less than 0.3% THC in all ReAction® products following the guidance of the 2018 Farm Bill Act.
I'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS COMPANY. HOW DO I KNOW I'M INGESTING AND USING SAFE, HIGH QUALITY PRODUCTS?
ReAction® products are derived from hemp that is grown under the guidance of the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Pilot Program. This Program was made Federally legal by the enactment of the 2018 Farm Bill. ReAction® works exclusively with a NCIHPP Licensed Hemp Cultivator and Processor who is the only company that is ISO 9001 certified in both. In simple terms, being ISO 9001 Certified is recognized as the ideal way for an organization to prove they take delivering a quality service seriously. Additionally, every ReAction® product undergoes rigorous testing throughout every step of the process by a third party, state certified lab to guarantee quality, purity, safety and potency – ensuring all products meet or exceed regulatory requirements.
HOW DO I STORE MY ReAction® FSE PRODUCTS?
It is best to keep your ReAction® FSE products at room temperature, out of direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Exposure to heat or cold can cause superaction and / or changing of consistency. We recommend keeping all edibles in your refrigerator.
I AM CURRENTLY ON PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS. CAN I STILL USE ReAction® FSE PRODUCTS?
We ask that you please consult your qualified healthcare provider before mixing with medications.
IS THE MILLIGRAM AMOUNT OF FSE PER SERVING OR FOR THE ENTIRE BOTTLE?
The milligrams listed on the bottle is the amount of FSE for the entire bottle, not per serving.
WHAT MEDICAL CONDITIONS CAN ReAction® FSE PRODUCTS HELP ME WITH?
According to the law, we make NO medical claims about the benefits of FSE. We recommend you speak with your qualified medical provider and see what they suggest or say about the products you are wanting to try.
CAN YOU TAKE FSE ReAction® PRODUCTS WITH YOUR DAILY VITAMINS?
We recommend you not changing your daily regimen without asking a qualified medical professional.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HEMP AND MARIJUANA?
Few genetic differences exist between hemp and marijuana plants, but in practical terms, the differences are quite significant.
Hemp and marijuana are both members of the same plant species, Cannabis sativa L. Cannabis sativa L. can contain a wide spectrum of cannabinoid concentrations, including wide ranging compositions of THC and CBD. Still, there are many practical differences between hemp and marijuana, and clear lines drawn between the two.
Cannabis has both male and female plants. When growing marijuana, male plants are removed, and only female plants are cultivated. This is because when cannabis is fertilized, it lowers the concentration of THC - the main chemical that gets you high. Thanks to selective breeding over many years, ideal concentrations of THC in marijuana range from 10% to as much as 30%. This will be important to remember in a moment when we compare marijuana to hemp.
Marijuana is encouraged to become short and bushy and grow lots of flowers. That’s because THC is concentrated mostly in the trichomes little resin-filled glands on the flowers of the plant. Although you can find THC throughout cannabis, it is the flowers or “buds” that are harvested for recreational marijuana.
Another key difference between hemp and marijuana is that hemp in genetically engineered to have almost no THC. Its flowers must contain 0.3% or less THC.
Hemp also has more CBD than THC naturally, making it an ideal source of CBD from cannabis and one of the reasons why hemp oil is the preferred source of natural CBD for thousands of people.
WHAT IS THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM?
The following information is presented for educational purposes only.
The Endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the main peripheral nervous system, including neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.
Whenever there are deviations from homeostasis in the body’s functions, the endocannabinoid system is activated and begins to respond accordingly by synthesizing endocannabinoids, which act as neurotransmitters.
When the body creates endocannabinoid neurotransmitters, they are picked up by specialized cannabinoid receptors, which sits on the surface of cells. These receptors are found in a wide range of physiological regions, such as in:
The immune system
Organs and glands
The brain (most significantly)
Like a key fits into a lock, endocannabinoids interact with these receptors and transmit information about changing conditions to kick-start a response, with the goal of helping the body achieve homeostasis, or equilibrium, within the body despite outside influences (Alger, 2013).
The endocannabinoid system’s receptor sites include CB1 and CB2 receptor variants, which respond differently to various cannabinoids (Pacher et al, 2006). CB1 receptors are most prevalent in the central nervous system and are linked to the following benefits:
Modulation of stress and anxiety
Balance of immune system
Inhibition of tumors
CB2 receptors are found mostly on cells in the immune system and seem to dominate in fighting inflammation and damage to tissue. Some cells can even contain both types of receptors, each responsible for a different function.
There are two major endocannabinoids – 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) and Anandamide (AEA).
2-AG is considered a full agonist of both CB1 and CB2 receptors. This means that it binds with, and fits well inside, both receptors to activate them to stimulate a physiological response.
Anandamide is considered a partial agonist of both receptors, because, while it binds with and activates the receptors, it doesn’t fit as well inside them and subsequently doesn’t trigger such a powerful physiological response (Parcher, Batkai & Kunos, 2006).
Once the function that had deviated from homeostasis returns to equilibrium and the endocannabinoids are no longer needed, the third piece of the system – the metabolic enzymes – breaks down and degrades them.
Fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) degrades Anandamide, and monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) breaks down 2-AG. By eliminating the endocannabinoids, the endocannabinoid system “turns off” the molecular signals and ends whatever physiological activity it had stimulated.
WHAT IS HOMEOSTASIS?
Homeostasis is the concept that most biological systems are actively regulated to maintain conditions within a narrow range. Our body doesn’t want its temperature to be too hot or too cold, blood sugar levels too high or too low, and so on. Conditions need to be just right for our cells to maintain optimum performance, and exquisite mechanisms have evolved to draw them back to the “correct” zone if they move out. The body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a vital molecular system for helping maintain homeostasis.
WHAT IS THE ENTOURAGE EFFECT, AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Cannabinoids, terpenes and other chemical compounds found in cannabis/hemp achieve limited success when working in isolation or as individual components. Research suggests that when these individual components of the cannabis/hemp plant support one another, therapeutic benefits are magnified. Together, they produce an effect that is greater than the sum of their parts. This phenomenon is known as the “entourage effect.” The entourage effect supports the idea that the whole plant is superior to pure extracts.
WHY FULL SPECTRUM vs. DISTILLATES or ISOLATES?
“True” Full Spectrum also known as “Whole Plant” is everything out of the hemp plant including cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, amino acids and fatty acids. Scientist believe there are over 120+ cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. With a “true” full spectrum product, you have the advantage of something called the “entourage effect.” This is where all the cannabinoids and terpenes are working together in synergy, something that broad spectrum and isolate products will lack. Using a Broad Spectrum, these products have often gone through additional processing to try to isolate and remove as much THC as possible while trying to maintain the other cannabinoids and terpenes. Using a broad spectrum, you will not get the “entourage effect” and will receive only some of the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes. Products labeled as isolates will generally be highlighted as being 99+% “pure CBD.” Usually, these products will have nothing but CBD in them because the CBD has literally been isolated from everything else. When using Isolate CBD, you are getting only one of the cannabis plants molecules. It Is believed that you will plateau using an Isolate or Broad Spectrum CBD product unlike a Full Spectrum.
WHAT MAKES ReAction® SUPERIOR?
ReAction® is made exclusively using Full Spectrum Hemp Extracts (FSE), which means every part of the hemp plant is utilized with nothing left behind, not just isolates or distillates like most others. ReAction in made with our proprietary extraction process using Nano and Cryosonic™ Technology.

ReAction® is 100% committed to providing the highest quality, Full Spectrum Extract Products on the market today. ReAction®…beyond CBD.
IS ReAction® LEGAL?
ReAction® is a full spectrum extract, which means these products utilize every part of the hemp plant – nothing is left behind, so our products do contain low levels of THC. With a full spectrum product, all the extracts work together to maximize the therapeutic benefits. This makes the ReAction® products more effective. But remember, our products are derived from the hemp plant – not the marijuana plant that contains much higher levels of THC. The Federal Farm Bill, which was adopted in 2018, allows hemp-derived products to contain as much as 0.3% THC – which is far less than the 10% to 30% THC found in marijuana.
ReAction’s products comply with all state and federal laws and are therefore absolutely legal to purchase and take. ReAction® works exclusively with a NCIHPP Licensed Hemp Cultivator and Processor who is the only Company that is ISO 9001 certified in both. This Quality Management System (QMS) certifies that ReAction® Products are able to meet certain prescribed standards and demonstrates the ability to consistently provide high quality products that meet Regulatory and Customer requirements.
