Full-Spectrum Hemp Extract – CBD + CBDA
Full-spectrum extract of agricultural hemp is high in naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, aldehydes, ketones, vitamins, trace minerals, omega fatty acids, protein, and more. Additionally, the hemp extract in our Hemp Classic blend contains both raw (CBDA) and heated cannabinoids (CBD).CBDA, or cannabidiolic acid, is the non-decarboxylated/raw form of CBD. CBDA transforms into CBD when carbon dioxide and hydrogen are removed. This can occur naturally as exposure to heat and light causes the plant to age, or it can occur by applying heat directly to the cannabinoids.
Steam Distilled Hemp Extract
Our steam (water) distilled CBD hemp oil contains at least 26 different aromatic terpenes plus various aldehydes and ketones. Steam distillation is an extraction technique that uses heat in the form of steam to break down plant matter and extract nutrients. Although this method tends to be less precise for extracting cannabinoids from hemp, it is very effective at extracting terpenes, aldehydes, and ketones. Terpenes, in particular, play a significant role in the way cannabis interacts with the body. The “entourage effect” is a common term used to describe the way the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in cannabis all work together to modulate how CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our organic extra virgin olive oil is an excellent, nutritious carrier oil for our hemp extract. CBD is lipid soluble, which means it is more easily absorbed into the bloodstream when consumed with other fats. The high concentration of healthy fats in olive oil and its pleasant taste make it a perfect carrier oil for our CBD hemp.
