Organic Growing Practices
Does the product use only organically grown hemp?
Extraction methods used
Extraction method determines potency, bioavailability and overall effectiveness. Common extraction methods include Ethanol, CO2 and Lipid Extraction.
Milligram (mg) of CBD or “hemp extract” per milliliter (ml) plays a role in a product’s potency. An average dosage should be around 20-25 mg.
Other variables that factor into product potency include extraction and post-extraction methods, including nano-emulsification.
ISOLATE VS. FULL SPECTRUM
CBD can be extracted as a full spectrum extract, with an array of naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes, or as an isolate (just CBD).
Isolate is best for individuals who want zero levels of THC in their product.
Full Spectrum is best for individuals who want a more potent and effective product that contains an array of naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes (with THC levels of .03% or less).
HEMP EXTRACT VS. HEMP OIL
Hemp Oil is cold pressed oil from hemp seeds, much like Olive Oil. This can be used in cooking, but contains little to no cannabinoids.
Hemp Extract (sometimes referred to as Hemp Oil) is extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant, and contains beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes.
When purchasing a CBD product, avoid products that say seed or stalk derived.
