Why Chinese herbs?
As one of the oldest established medical traditions, Chinese herbal medicine looks to treat the root causes of a disorder. Instead of addressing the symptoms or a disease in particular, we look to find what patterns of disharmony are leading to the symptoms. From our pattern selection we then pick the specific amount of each herb that we will put into a formula. Our herbs are selected both for their energetic properties and for their pharmacological actions. Each herb is selected to function as a part of a whole, making the formula of multiple herbs a more precise decoction that addresses much more than just the current symptoms. Combining our clinical experience treating modern health ailments with the wisdom of medicine used for thousand of years, we have specifically formulated these products to address that issues we see most commonly.
How are Radical Roots’ products processed?
Our extraction method is based on an alchemical art called Spagyrics. This word was coined by Paracelsus in the 1500’s to describe the extraction, purification and recombination of plant constituents. This method later led to the birth of many modern day pharmaceuticals.
By employing both an alcohol and mineral extraction, we create more bio-available forms of naturally derived vitamins and nutrients. We only use organic alcohol and distilled water to extract a full spectrum of compounds including the alkaloids, carbohydrates, terpenes, vitamins and minerals from the starting material.
Can I use Radical Roots products with other medications?
Our products can inhibit the cytochrome P450 system’s ability to metabolize certain drugs, leading to an overall increase in processing times. When the CYP450 system is impacted in this way, it leads to higher levels of certain drugs in your system at one time. If you are taking a medication affected by our products, you should consult your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to supplement your personal care routine with hemp oil extract. From there, the two of you may consider adjusting the dosage on your medications so that you can use both products safely.
Do Radical Roots products contain THC?
All Radical Roots products have less than 0.3% THC in accordance to the legal regulations.
Are your products organic?
We source our hemp from various farms in order to provide the appropriate profile for each formula. All of the farms use organic farming techniques, however, not all of them are certified as organic as the process takes many years. Our certificates of analysis will be updated regularly on this site so that you have full transparency.
Which product should I use?
We have developed these products in accordance to Chinese Medical theory. Our goal was to take some of the confusion out of hemp extract and Chinese herbs so we tried to make products that are easy to understand. Please read through the product descriptions and find the right one for you! If you do not have the results you are looking for, give us a call or check with an acupuncturist and we can help find the right fit!
How do I take the tincture?
We recommend starting at 0.5mL (1/2 a dropperful) and increasing as needed. Shake the product before use and then put 0.5-1mL under your tongue, hold it there for 30-60 seconds and then swallow. Take twice a day.
Where are the herbs grown?
Our hemp is grown in Colorado by farmers who utilize organic farming techniques and follow the most eco-friendly farming techniques available. Our Chinese herbs are grown in China and sourced from Spring Wind Herb Company, who are renowned worldwide for having the cleanest herbs available on the market.
Are your products third-party tested?

Do you offer your products wholesale for practitioners?
