What is CBD? Exactly what is CBD Oil?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally taking place constituent of commercial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in marijuana, and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons.

CBD oil is a marijuana oil (whether derived from cannabis or industrial hemp, as the word marijuana is the latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) included within it. Our CBD items and extracts are stemmed from commercial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp obtained CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” because they generally contain much more than just CBD.

Once again, cannabis doesn't suggest marijuana, however is the genus name, and general umbrella term which all types of cannabis and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we utilize for our CBD and hemp extracts is commercial hemp; we do not sell cannabis.

If a hemp extract is 40% cannabinoids, what's the other 60%?

Exactly what's in your hemp extracts besides the naturally occurring cannabinoids?

Our Kentucky hemp extracts consist of over 80 various phyto-cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, and so on. In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our agricultural hemp extracts, there are also numerous other kinds of natural molecules and phyto-chemical substances such as amino acids, carbs, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavanoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes.

The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.

Are your products safe?

Yes. All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants.

From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy in potency information and to check for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as cannabinoid content.

We also use a supercritical CO2 method when we extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh solvents. CO2 is a much healthier choice than other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.

What’s the difference between CBD hemp oil and the hemp products I buy at the grocery store?

Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it unfeasible as a CBD supplement.

Our CBD hemp oil, however, is extracted from the stalk of specifically selected hemp cultivars, offering higher percentages of CBD by weight and additional nutritional benefits from the contents of our oil.

Why should I use CBD from natural sources?

Unlike synthetically created or chemically derived CBD, which removes the cannabinoid from the rest of the plant’s extract, our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the plant in a process that also pulls all of the plant’s fatty acids, waxes, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and terpenes and flavonoids, along with the various cannabinoids present, for a more complete dietary supplement.

Often called the “entourage effect”, this method of using CBD takes advantage of the whole plant, letting the body interact with the hemp in its natural state.

Synthetic CBD is also a controlled substance in the United States.

I heard the FDA was shutting down CBD companies. Is this true?

The FDA has warned companies marketing CBD products not to make any claims about the use of CBD to treat or prevent disease. This is due to the fact that the FDA has not approved CBD or any other cannabinoid for any medical indications and does not currently regard it as having medicinal benefit.

We were not among the companies warned by the FDA, and as an industry leader, we make it a point to remain conservatively compliant with all FDA guidelines. We never make claims about the benefits of our products and, instead, encourage you to do your own research and discuss your concerns with your doctor before starting any new dietary supplement.

Exactly what's the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the exact same plant, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically various hereditary profile though. Industrial Hemp is constantly a stress of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The significant distinction is how commercial hemp has actually been reproduced compared with a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa.

Generally speaking, industrial hemp is really fibrous, with long strong stalks, and hardly has any flowering buds, while a marijuana pressure of Cannabis sativa will be smaller sized, bushier, and filled with blooming buds. However, more recent industrial hemp ranges in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and greater yields of cannabinoids and terpenes, such as our Kentucky hemp we're now utilizing!

99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and just a really low quantity of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a really high quantity of CBD in many circumstances, and only a trace amount of THC. Thankfully, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people trying to find take advantage of cannabis without the ‘high.'

Hemp is utilized for making organic supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so a lot more, whereas cannabis is generally used simply recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term marijuana oil can describe either a marijuana or hemp obtained oil, because marijuana and hemp are 2 various kinds of marijuana.

In the USA the legal definition of “commercial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP– The term “industrial hemp” indicates the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”

Are hemp derived cannabinoids such as CBD as great as CBD from cannabis?

The short response is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. The majority of marijuana has an extremely low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile (like CBD, CBC, CBG), so the majority of the time hemp would be far more preferable for anything besides THC. Cannabis is usually extremely high in THC (provides individuals the high) but typically very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.

Nowadays in the USA, lots of farmers are growing industrial hemp flowers that are just as beautiful, odor-producing, and terpene rich as the very best marijuana pressures, such as our partnered farmers in Kentucky.

  1. Why don't you source your Hemp and CBD from within Colorado?

We feel that the hemp program in Kentucky is more well matched for our company in regards to growing hemp, and that since it's 100% certified with Section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill (and the 2016 Agricultural Appropriations Act), procuring it from there is perfectly legal at the federal level. Kentucky's ecology is best for hemp just as it is for tobacco. The growing season is longer than in Colorado, and the soil is richer, so the quality of the hemp and the yields are better.

Is a standard hemp seed oil the like a high-CBD hemp extract?

Absolutely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be discovered really inexpensively at a supermarket, is a much various product than our CO2 hemp extracts (not from seed). Basic hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a supercritical CO2 extraction of the hemp plant itself, not the seeds.

What is CO2 extraction? What's the difference in between subcritical and supercritical CO2 extractions?

CO2 extraction is an extraction procedure that uses pressurized co2 to extract phyto-chemicals (such as CBD, CBG, or terpenes, flavonoids, etc.) from a plant. CO2 at specific temperatures and pressures acts like a solvent, without the threats of really being one. It is the most expensive extraction method, and is commonly considered the most reliable and safest plant extraction technique in the world.

Lots of hemp and CBD companies boast about their supercritical CO2 extractions, however that's actually just one (and perhaps an inferior) approach of using a CO2 extraction machine. There are also subcritical CO2 extractions, and ‘mid-critical', a basic range between subcritical and supercritical. Subcritical (low temperature, low pressure) CO2 extractions take more time and produce smaller sized yields than super-critical, however they retain the important oils, terpenes, and other sensitive chemicals within the plant. Supercritical, on the other hand, is a high pressure and heat procedure that harms most terpenes and heat sensitive chemicals, but can extract much bigger molecules such as lipids (omega 3 and 6), chlorophyll, and waxes.

A genuinely full-spectrum CO2 extract consists of very first performing a subcritical extraction, separating the drawn out oil, and after that drawing out the very same plant material using supercritical pressure, then homogenizing both oil extracts into one. In the vital oil industry, an extract used this specific process is described as a CO2 Total.

Exactly what is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the main and peripheral worried systems, including neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia.

There are 2 primary kinds of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the main nerve system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are normally found in the peripheral anxious system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (called after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “peace”).

For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has actually been equipped with this ECS, a vital system in the body, and it has been learnt about in the clinical and medical communities since the 1980's. Nevertheless, it's still not taught about in most medical schools.

Does cannabidiol (CBD) and other natural hemp based constituents show up on a drug test?

Most workplace drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of cannabidiol (CBD) or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can, in rare cases, cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing, we recommend (as does the United States Military) that you do not ingest our products and consult with your healthcare, drug screening/testing company, or employer.
