What is CBD oil?
Derived from the stalk and seed of cannabis (hemp) plants, cannabidiol (CBD) oil is a natural botanical concentrate that is high in the compound CBD. Of the more than 85 cannabinoids so far identified in the cannabis plant, CBD is the second most common after tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and therefore doesn’t cause a euphoric high.
CBD hemp oil is extracted from the cannabis varieties that are naturally abundant in CBD, and low in THC. A specialized extraction process is used to yield highly concentrated CBD oil that also contains other nutritious material such as omega-3 fatty acids, terpenes, vitamins, chlorophyll, amino acids, and other phytocannabinoids like cannabichromene (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN) and cannabidivarian (CBCV).
Cannabinoids, including CBD, interact with your body’s endocannabinoid system, or ECS. The ECS is a system of receptors found in all mammals. These receptors are located in the brain and nervous system throughout the body, specifically CB1 and CB2 receptors
Numerous studies have shown the ECS to be directly involved in the processes that keep our bodies balanced day to day, including: appetite, pain sensation, mood, memory, immune system functions, and inflammation control.
Overall, clinical research concludes that the endocannabinoid system is largely responsible for managing homeostasis: the body’s natural condition of balance.
In which states is CBD legal to purchase?
Our CBD oil products are available for purchase in all 50 states. In fact, our distibutor was the first company to ship CBD oil products over state lines to customers throughout the U.S. Since then, thousands of customers have ordered CBD oil products. You can also travel with our CBD oil products, so you never need to be without your CBD supplement, even when on the road.
Hemp has become a popular legal source of cannabinoids like CBD in a number of countries around the world. Like all cannabinoids, CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help modulate functions like sleep, appetite, mood, and immune response to keep the body in balance.
Although it is legal to manufacture and distribute products containing cannabidiol (CBD) from naturally low-THC hemp here in the U.S., it is still largely illegal to grow hemp in America, with small exceptions being made for pilot programs through the 2014 Farm Bill. Therefore, we must import all the hemp oil used in the formulation of our products from international sources.
Working with farms in Northern Europe, we carefully tested and reviewed 3,000 cultivars of hemp to find the one that would thrive and produce the optimal ratio of cannabinoids necessary for our products. The hemp oil sourced from these hemp plants are high in CBD and low in THC, the cannabinoid that gets users high, making its extracted oil legal to purchase in the U.S.
How safe and reliable are our CBD oil supplements?
Due to hemp’s identity as a bioaccumulator, it is incredibly important that any products made using hemp are properly tested for any outside contamination. We do just that – three times over – in order to produce the safest products on the market. Our Triple Lab Tested™ process starts at our hemp’s harvest, where it is tested for outside contaminants. Following importation into the U.S., our CBD hemp oil is tested again by an ISO / IEC 17025:2005 accredited lab to check for microbes, mold, heavy metals, and other possible contaminants, as well as for potency of the cannabinoids present.
Finally, after our hemp oil is formulated into our many products, they are batch tested to make sure that the final product is ready to be shipped to your door and safely used by you and your family. It is important to know the potency of any supplement you are adding to your diet. It is for this reason that we also tests for concentration of cannabinoids in our hemp oil, as well as for outside contaminants. This testing for the potency of our oil allows us to ensure consistent servings of CBD in our products. That means our products that you come to trust will be dependable every time, with the same reliable levels of CBD you count on.
CBD hemp oil supplements are taken to promote homeostasis within the body. Why tamper with this balance by choosing a supplement loaded with artificial ingredients? We use all-natural ingredients in all our CBD hemp oil products for a pure, healthful dietary supplement. These ingredients include botanical extracts like peppermint oil and almond oil and sustainable beeswax, coconut oil, and ginger root. Our commitment to high-quality, natural ingredients promotes well-being and preserves the balance our products were designed to create.
