Frequently Asked Questions

  • How did you come up with the name 'My Brother's Flower'?
    As explained by our team member, Bree: “I thought of the name early in the morning, after my husband had told me about Sean's story the night before. Something that occurred to me was that I had never realized how powerful a man's sorrow really was. It could possibly be one of life's greatest contradictions to witness a man surrender to grief. And so, I pictured a man, like Sean, who appears impenetrable in most of life's circumstances, offering flowers to his brother. And, to me, in mourning for anything, flowers are a gentle, soft, and beautiful way of expressing a seemingly intangible feeling... So, My Brother's Flower happened to be this perfect analogy, to me, of what Sean went through in reality. His brother's devastating suicide attempt lead Sean on a journey to seek a more gentle approach to his brother's quality of life, and literally brought him to the point of offering cannabis "flowers" to his brother.”
  • What is a T-Free Product / Will I test positive on a drug test if I take your CBD products?
    If a "Full Spectrum" product is taken chances are you will test positive on a drug test. My Brother's Flower "THC Free" products go through a secondary refinement process to remove 99.9% of the THC content within the raw oil. They are then third party tested to ensure the lowest possible levels of THC are present. My Brothers Flower (NuFarma Group LLC) will not assume responsibility for the result of a positive THC drug test by users due to: The inability to remove all trace amounts of THC during the refinement process, the possibility of discrepencies in lab test results, the lack of data to quantify the amount of THC needed to be present in the bloodstream to produce a positive drug test, and the inability to prove a positive THC drug test was the direct result of the use of our products. We do not suggest the use of our products to anyone that has the potential to incur adverse affects in life due to a positive THC drug test, nor do we endorse or claim that our products have 0% THC present within them. Although it seems unlikely that a user will test positive for THC on a drug test if the only cannabis product being used is a My Brother's Flower "THC FREE" product, and its being used as directed, we still can not say for certain that our products will not produce a postive THC test result. If you are concerned about taking our products due to the prescence of THC in them, please do not take our products.
  • What is a "Full Spectrum" Product
    My Brother's Flower "Full Spectrum" product include a percentage of THC per product. These products are below the legal limit of THC which the USA federal government has defined as a cannabis product that is "below .3% total THC content by total weight of the product." A My Brother's Flower "Full Spectrum" Hemp product has the potential to create a psychoactive experience, depending on many factors including but not limited to: Amount of product ingested, past cannabis use, stature of person consuming, etc. If you are concerned with the potential of a psychoactive experience, we do not suggest consuming any of our "Full Spectrum" products. "Full Spectrum" products are meant to increase the effectiveness by enhancing the so called "Entourage effect" of taking multiple cannabinoids per delivery.
  • What is the proper dosing of your products?
    Tincture - Suggested Starting Dose = 1/4 dropper Gummy - Suggested Starting Dose = 1 gummy Vaping has more instantaneous effects, so it is advised to start slow and then dose up as desired. Listen to your body and dose up to your desired effect. There is no maximum amount of cannabis you can ingest. ​ Side effects could include drowsiness, dizziness or nausea. Higher potency THC products could have the side effect of hallucination if large doses are taken. ​ Please be responsible when taking any cannabis products and do not operate vehicles while under the influence. KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

  • What are the pros and cons of taking tinctures?
    Tinctures are meant to be taken sublingually and are widely considered the most efficient way to get cannabinoids into the blood stream. Taking cannabis oil under the tongue helps the product enter the bloodstream without incurring any potential molecular changes that can occur within the stomach. Stomach acids have the possibility of converting cannabinoids and have been known to create unwanted psychoactive side effects. This is less likely when taken sublingually. A con of taking cannabis oil orally would be a possible undesirable cannabis taste (almost everyone we know agrees it is an acquired taste that the body seems to become naturally attracted to over time). Another con could be the length of time between consumption and the initial feeling of its affects. This has resulted in many reports of people having undesirable results due to over consumption, particularly from THC. In extreme cases, possible side effects include vomiting or hallucination. One of the beautiful aspects of cannabis is it is not possible to overdose, making it a safe product. Affects can take up to 2 hours to be felt after consumption.
  • What are the Pro's and Con's of taking Gummies
    Gummies are a similar delivery method as Tinctures but will enter the blood stream through your intestinal track rather than orally. The acidic environment in the stomach has the potential to create a molecular change in cannabinoids and can lead to a different affect than intended. An example being, CBD converting to THC in the stomach which could cause some psycho activity, even in a T-Free product. These instances are rare. Another con of taking cannabinoids orally is the length of time between consumption and the initial feeling of its affects. This has resulted in many reports of people having undesirable results due to over consumption, particularly from THC. In extreme cases, possible side effects include vomiting or hallucination. One of the beautiful aspects of cannabis is it is not possible to overdose, making it a safe product. Affects can take up to 2 hours to be felt after consumption. A Pro of ingesting an edible is bypassing the lungs and any potential harm from smoking. Gummies are typically preferred for their taste
  • What are the pros and cons of vaping?
    When vaping, you are turning the oil into a vapor and inhaling it. Vaping is preferred by some for its more instantaneous effects, due to vapors absorbing directly into the blood stream through the lungs. There are many opposing theories on whether vaping has damaging effects or beneficial effects. Some believe vaping damages the lungs, while some believe it expands lung capacity. These are all theories and we suggest doing your own research on vaping. We do acknowledge that the frequency of vaping could be a deciding factor on whether it is affecting you negatively or not. We can ensure that our vape products are as pure as possible, containing only cannabis oil and all natural terpenes.
  • What is cannabis?
    Cannabis, also known as marijuana or hemp, is a genus of flowering plants with two main species: Indica and Sativa. Each has numerous genetic differences within the species. Cannabis plants produce oils which contain many different compounds, however, they are unique in that they are the only plant to produce cannabinoids. These cannabinoids interact with the human biological system called the Endocannabinoid system (ECS). The genetic makeup between different cannabis plants creates unique characteristics in the compounds that they produce, including the cannabinoid content. Each genetic difference has its own effect when ingested. Although there are hundreds of cannabinoids each interacting with the ECS in a different way, Cannabis is well known for its psychoactive traits coming from the cannabinoid THC.
  • What is hemp?
    Hemp is the definition given to cannabis that has a THC content that is below the federally legal limit of 0.3%. My Brother’s Flower currently does not sell anything over the legal limit of 0.3% THC online.
  • What is the difference between indica and sativa?
    The two major genus of cannabis plants are Indica and Sativa. Whether Indica and Sativa are different species or not is up for debate. Indica's origins are from India, while Sativa is from East Asia. The differences between these plants is mostly focused on the variances of the psychoactive traits within their THC content. Hemp is typically derived from a sativa plant since it has higher CBD levels.
  • What is an endocannabinoid?
    An Endocannabinoid, also known as an endogenous cannabinoid, is a molecule similar to a cannabinoid, but it is produced naturally within the body. There are currently two known endocannabinoids that each interact with the endocannabinoid system and its receptors. These receptors play a key role in many of the bodies internal functions.
  • What is a cannabinoid?
    Cannabinoids are the active compounds in the cannabis plant that react to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) within the body. There are over 100 different cannabinoids currently known, with the two major ones being CBD and THC. Other cannabinoids include CBN, CBG, CBC, THCa, CBDa, and many more.
  • What is CBD?
    Cannabidiol (CBD) is the major, non-psychoactive cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. It binds to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) within the body.
  • What is THC?
    Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the other major, psychoactive cannabinoid found within the cannabis plant. It also binds to the endocannabinoid system (ECS) within the body.
  • What is CBG?
    Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of many minor cannabinoids that also interacts with the endocannabinoid system within the body. It is considered the "mother cannabinoid", because it is the parent cannabinoid which all other cannabinoids synthesize from. In other words, all of the 120 identified cannabinoids start out as CBG.
  • What is CBN?
    Cannabinol (CBN) is also a minor cannabinoid that interacts with the endocannabinoid system within the body. CBN is different than all other cannabinoids as it does not stem directly from the "mother cannabinoid" CBG. CBN is oxidized THC or CBD and is created from one of two ways: Either it is simply degraded THC or more likely it has gone through a secondary laboratory process to convert the molecule from CBD or THC. There are no psychoactive traits in CBN.
  • What is CBC?
    Cannabichromene (CBC) is a minor cannabinoid that is known to bind to receptors in the body that are associated with pain to help. We add CBC to our Soothing Salve and Calming Cream to increase effectiveness of pain management.
  • What is the endocannabinoid system?
    The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is the physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining health. The human body contains endocannabinoid receptors throughout: In the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. The ECS regulates many things within the body including sleep, mood, memory, appetite, reproduction, pain sensation, and immunity.
  • What is the Entourage Effect?
    This is the theory that all of the botanical compounds in cannabis work synergistically and, when taken together, produce a better affect than when taken in an isolated form. This is the reason that a less refined oil, full or broad spectrum, is more beneficial. The two most prominent compounds involved in the Entourage Effect are Cannabinoids and Terpenes. If your lifestyle permits, something near an equal ratio of CBD:THC in your oil is considered the most beneficial way to maximize the entourage effect. CBD and THC have a so-called ying and yang relationship with THC being psychoactive and CBD being anti-pshycoactive. We believe when consuming the plant for medicinal benefits, the most beneficial form would be an all-natural full spectrum oil, containing near equal amounts of CBD and THC, along with as many different minor cannabinoids and terpenes as possible. Due to legal constraints, My Brother's Flower only sells products with less than .3% THC online. We have full lineups of THC products in recreational and medical dispensaries across Colorado.
  • What are terpenes?
    Terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in a variety of plants. Commonly sought after in essential oils, these are the oils that give different cannabis plants their distinct smell and taste. About 200 different terpenes have been discovered in cannabis, although they are not specific to cannabis. Some common terpenes found in cannabis that are also found in other plants include: Pinene = Pine needles Limonene = Citrus Linalool = Lavender Myrcene = Hops
  • What is Adaptogenic?
    Adaptogens are herbs or mushrooms that are thought to have certain health benefits. When consumed these plants target specific receptors within the body which may help to respond to stress, anxiety, fatigue and assist in maintaining a general state of homeostasis.
