frequently asked questions
"Maku" is the Japanese derivative of the Chinese word "Magu," who was an ancient deity for hemp. Our logo is actually an ancient symbol for hemp from the Bronze Age.
As long as the hemp product contains less than 0.3% THC, then it is classified as hemp under federal law and is therefore legal to possess and distribute. However, although it is legal federally; many states still impose strict mandates to govern its distribution online and within brick and mortar locations. The states impacted are the following: Idaho, South Dakota, Nebraska, or Kansas.
We see our competitors as industry friends and recognize that we have a lot of great ones out there! Maku, however, offer the highest quality hemp oil at the lowest price on the market. We offer affordability for those who need it most. We also offer an exceptional rewards program and community base to celebrate your loyalty.

There is no such thing as FDA approval or organic certifications for hemp oil. However, this may change now with the new farm bill recently passed. Once the FDA opens the door for such approval, we will be approved as we are in the final stages of our ISO 9000 and GMP Manufacturing Certifications. Our MCT oil, however, is FDA approved. Additionally, our crops are cultivated using organic practices. You may view our lab tests here https://getmaku.com/pages/lab-tests.
We can't speak to other brands, but we can however, let you know about our products for you to compare. We extract our CBD from Cannabis Sativa with less than 0.3THC - this is often referred to as “Hemp”. We use whole-plant C02 extraction method that provides us with a full-spectrum of cannabinoids and concentration of CBD in our Maku Elixir. The reason our price varies so much in comparison to other brands out there is simply because we are passionate about bringing harmony to those who need it most at the highest quality for the lowest price.
It is unlikely that you will fail a drug test when using our products. However, our full spectrum help oil does contain trace amounts of THC. It is better to speak to your employer before use if this is a major concern.

Full Spectrum CBD is extracted from Cannabis Sativa. We use whole-plant C02 extraction method that provides us with a full-spectrum of cannabinoids, essential vitamins, minerals, Omega fatty acids, flavonoids, chlorophyll, terpenes, and trace amounts of THC. Whereas, hemp Isolate is generally extracted from the plant stock and processed to remove all of the oils, plant material, waxes, chlorophyll, and more, leaving behind the pure Cannabidiol. Isloate extraction leaves behind naturally occurring ingredients from the plant which in exchange loses the synergistic balance that Full Spectrum CBD provides.
The use of hemp oil is documented by historical researchers. Their data predates back to 500 B.C! The human body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved in regulating a variety of functions including sleep, appetite, pain, and the response of your immune system. As a result, many have reported its almost magical relieving abilities.

While we are aware that it is better to store oils in a dark container, we wanted for our customers to develop a more intimate relationship with the elixir. It is for this reason, we chose to have our product in a clear bottle to where the oils are visible in its natural form. The important factor here, is how the elixir is stored, which we do so in a cool dark space within a UV protected black product box.
This is a great question! Everyone reacts differently to the effect hemp oil provides. As a result, we recommend that you start small and build up.
