Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I order Happyseed infused products?
Our recreational products (THC) can only be purchased at licensed dispensaries in California. Happyseed wellness products (CBD) can be purchased at health and wellness stores across the USA. CBD products can also be purchased directly from the Happyseed CBD store and shipped directly to your door.
How can I be certain that your products contain the amount of cannabis (THC or CBD) indicated on the label?
By law, all recreational products sold in California dispensaries are required to pass extensive testing by a certified third-party lab. Each of our products must be tested for pesticides, molds, solvents, and other undesirable foreign materials. Additionally, all products must contain the amount of cannabis listed on the label (+/- 10%). Our CBD products are also submitted to a 3rd-party lab for potency tests so you can be assured that you are getting the amount of cannabis indicated on the label. We post these test results on each of our CBD product pages.
Can you provide more details about your product development and testing process?
Unlike many of our competitors, especially in the CBD edibles market, we produce all of our products using specialized tools, equipment, and processes that provide the highest level of quality for our customers. We use an extensive three-step testing process (performed by a licensed third-party lab). This includes: 1) testing the source cannabis distillate, isolate, or full spectrum oil for quality and potency, 2) testing our cannabis emulsion for potency before being infused into our products, 3) testing our final finished products before they are distributed to retail stores or customers. In addition, we also use high-tech emulsification equipment to guarantee that the infused cannabis is completely and evenly distributed throughout the product. The use of these emulsification tools helps to increase bioavailability which means that you get more of the desired effects of the infused cannabis.
I used to be able to buy Happyseed THC products in Indica, and Sativa strains, why are products now only available with a single THC option?
Prior to 2018, we produced our infused edibles for over five years using canna-butter recipes. To improve the quality and control the purity of our products, we have switched to using refined distillate which consists of a hybrid of cannabis strains that offer the combined benefits and effects of different cannabis strains. Additionally, recent studies have shown that specific cannabis strains do not provide the same predictable effects when consumed as edibles.
Previously I used to be able to buy Happyseed raw honey in 250mg jars, now I can only find 100mg jars in my local dispensary, Why?
For recreational products, California state law only permits marijuana edible packages to contain a maximum dose of 100mg and each serving can not exceed 10mg. One big advantage of our infused honey jars is that you can use a full tablespoon for a 10mg serving or use a smaller teaspoon serving
size to consume a micro-dose amount of cannabis.
I don’t have any experience with THC edible products, how many mg’s should I take?
The effects of cannabis usually vary considerably from one individual to another. These differences are based on factors such as body weight, metabolism, and your prior experience with using cannabis. For beginners, we recommend that you start with 5mg or less. Experienced users can normally tolerate 10mg or more. Since the effects of cannabis edibles can take 30 minutes or more, we recommend that you wait at least 1-2 hours before consuming an additional serving.
What is the shelf life of your products?
Our honey jars, honey stix, almond butter, and ChocoNut can last a year or more when stored in a cool dry location away from light. Our baked goods (Biscotti Bites) can last 3-4 months under the same conditions and can be extended when refrigerated or frozen.
I purchased one of your honey jars and noticed some crystalizing in the product. Does this mean the honey has gone bad?
Crystallization is a natural occurrence for pure honey products. If crystals form, set the container in warm water until the crystals disappear.
