The ingenuity and creativity innate to the engineering life translate well into the CBD industry, as Fairwinds CBD has some of the most technologically advanced grow room monitoring systems in the biz. Originally only selling products with THC, we are stoked that Fairwinds now has a CBD catalog available in all 50 states. However, we are a bit concerned about the CBD oil extraction method currently employed by this Washington brand.

The immense attention to detail is vital for growing the best cannabis, and Fairwinds leaves no stone unturned in the quest for best cultivation techniques. When it comes to hemp grow operation, this team takes the cake.
Fairwinds CBD has not been verified to provide current, third-party lab results for both potency and contaminants.
What makes Fairwinds CBD products stand out from the fray are their insanely high concentrations of CBG. CBG is another beneficial cannabinoid, and we can’t think of another company out there with levels this high!
Spectrum AM and PM tinctures are similar in their targeted effects, but the ingredients differ a bit as one is designed for daytime use, and the other for end of day rest. Our AM tincture is formulated using white grapefruit essential oil and huperzia herbal extract – popular for its mood enhancing and focus-boosting properties. The PM tincture contains sweet orange essential oil, which has been shown to help with calmness and relaxation. Both are made with lemon, rosemary, and peppermint essential oils as well as herbal extracts of boswellia, ginger, and turmeric! We use slightly different terpenes in each formula as well.
Chances are you know about the cannabinoid CBD and that all of our CBD products are sourced from cannabis as opposed to hemp. This means all of our CBD products contain THC in varying amounts- even if it is miniscule. At Dockside you may have seen some product descriptions or titles that contain ratios like 1:1, 10:1 or 20:1. Confused? You’re not alone. We get a lot of questions about dosing and the difference between various ratios.
Is there a reason I would take a 20:1 tincture vs a 1:1?
“Each person will have individual needs and different desired effects when using CBD and THC in tandem. The ratio you select will be dependent on multiple factors, including your own experience with and tolerance of cannabis. A 20:1 ratio may be preferable for someone with limited cannabis experience, someone who wants to ensure they don’t feel any intoxication, and/or a person looking to maximize their CBD intake.
Since a lot of the questions we receive are about Fairwinds’ broad offering of tinctures and capsules, we interviewed Randi from their team in order to clear up confusion about CBD ratios, correct dosing, and which tinctures are best to find relief while keeping a clear head. Here’s what we learned:
What CBD ratio can I take and get work done without getting high?
“Our entire Ratio Series is designed to be functional for everyone who uses it; however, as each person has their own unique system and tolerance, we would recommend starting with the 20:1 or 10:1 ratios for those who may be concerned about a potential impact on their clear-headedness.”
What makes the two Fairwinds’ Spectrum tinctures different aside from their “AM” and “PM” formula labels?
“One of the things that makes Fairwinds unique is our inclusion of other herbal extracts and essential oils – it’s why we have such a wide variety of tinctures and capsules instead of just a few different ratios.
Understanding that these ratios stand for CBD to THC (or CBD:THC) is the first step. A 5:1 ratio for example doesn’t necessarily mean that there are 5 mg of CBD and 1 mg of THC per serving, but that for every 5 parts CBD proportionally there is 1 part THC. For example,that could mean one serving gives you 40mg CBD:8mg THC. It all depends on the total cannabinoids in the bottle, divided by the number of servings. All cannabis companies in WA are required to list this information. Now to find a tincture that’s right for you.
