About Hemp Extract
What is the endocannabinoid system?
A system in our bodies that plays a pivotal role in regulating a wide range of physiological processes that affect our mood, sleep, metabolism, energy, stress, bone density, blood pressure and more. In addition to phytocannabinoids (plant-based), there are endogenous cannabinoids that occur naturally in the human brain and body. Cannabinoids bind to the CB1, found mainly in brain and spinal cord and CB2 receptors found in peripheral tissues affecting immune function
Why do we need Hemp Extract?
Studies have shown the existence of a system of cell receptors in your body, called the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is involved with every tissue, organ, including the brain. The cannabis family of plants contains compounds which interact specifically with this system and provide nutritional and therapeutic value that is unavailable to most other plants.
What is Ethanol Extraction?
Our line of organic tinctures are Ethanol extracted. This type of extraction has proven to maintain more of the phytonutrients from the Hemp plant. Our oils are made from a proprietary blend of 4 different strains(for maximum cannabinoid and phytonutrient concentration). We have 2 different milligram concentrations of 1000mg and 1500mg. We Have added organic cannabis-derived terpenes to achieve a daytime blend for focus and mood elevation and an evening blend for relaxation and sleep. Our broad spectrum concentrates are blended in organic MCT oil.
Ethanol extraction is effective, efficient, and safe to handle. The FDA classifies ethanol as “Generally Regarded as Safe,” or GRAS, meaning that it is safe for human consumption. As a result, it is commonly used as a food preservative and additive.
What is CO2 Extraction?
The Supercritical CO2 extraction process creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. CO2 is extremely versatile for creating a multitude of end products by controlling temperature and pressure. These phase changes create an environment to drop out differing weights of components in the plant material.
The machines design, allows for separation and collection of these constituents during a single extraction. This enables collection of light essential oils separately from other desirable constituents and heavier lipids. Supercritical CO2 fluid extraction (SCFE) methodology delivers a clean, unaltered, consistent-yet-flexible product.
What are the delivery methods and which is most effective?
Soft Gels: Are to be ingested orally and will take 2-3 hours to start to feel the effects and will last about 6-8 hours.
Edibles: Are taken orally and depending on their matrix and mgs, would determine how long it will take to be metabolized and length of time of effectiveness.
Suppositories: Are inserted vaginally or rectally. This is a very quick route of absorption rectally as it gets directly into the hepatic portal vein and is then metabolized systemically through the liver. The suppositories will also affect local regions of insertion.
Oil Tinctures: Are to be ingested orally and will take 2-3 minutes to start to feel effects. In 20-60 minutes they are absorbed in the small intestines and the effects may last about 4 hours. There is no fat absorbion under the tongue, so no need to place or hold it there. Also best utilized if patient still has a gal bladder. If there is no gal bladder, taking a digestive fat enzyme will be helpful.
Salves: Are massaged on topically to areas of concern for skin, muscles and peripheral neuropathies. They can be applied many times daily.
Nano Water: Is to be ingested orally. It has been proven to cross the blood brain barrier within 45 seconds.
