Garden of Life is a brand name you know and trust. Our hemp is 100% grown and produced in the US. We established our farm co-op in eastern Oregon for one simple reason—this is one of the most fertile biomes for hemp cultivation in the world. Our farming collective has deep roots in organic and regenerative farming.
Garden of Life whole hemp extracts contain a Full Spectrum of terpenes, cannabinoids, flavonoids, and fatty acids found in the hemp plant, all working together to create synergies that are known as the entourage effect. What’s missing? THC, the unwanted psychoactive commonly found in hemp. That’s why we call our Whole Hemp Extract “Broad Spectrum”—it’s all of the complex benefits of hemp without the unwanted risk of THC.
Garden of Life is very proud to offer the first Non-GMO Certified softgels for CBD products. Dr. Perlmutter formulated this unique product with 30mg of Cannabidiol (CBD) from Whole Hemp Extract, plus our specially sourced Pure Essential Oils rich in terpenes, to create a more potent entourage effect.
Whole Hemp Extract with No THC
We offer CBD Whole Hemp Extract in multiple delivery systems including liquids, softgels and sprays. There are stand-alone CBD formulas, as well as CBD+ formulas with added clinically studied ingredients to help support the desired wellness effects of the product.

There are changes underway on federal and state levels that will ultimately clarify the laws and regulations related to CBD-based products and sales. Despite that, they’re widely available in nearly every state and online. People who want to use CBD should check their state laws.
Inhaled. CBD can be inhaled via a vaporizing, or vape, pen. However, inhalation of vapor oils and chemical byproducts carry unknown risks, particularly for people with inflammatory arthritis. For this reason and because the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating vaping in association with widespread hospitalizations and deaths from severe pulmonary disease, vaping is not recommended.
Our gratitude to the following experts for their guidance and review:
How much CBD should I use? While there are no established clinical guidelines, the medical experts consulted by the Arthritis Foundation recommend the following for adults:
Should I give CBD a try? Without quality clinical studies on CBD and arthritis, doctors have not been able to say who might benefit from CBD, at what dose and in which form, who likely won’t benefit and who should avoid it. Still, there is agreement on several points:
