What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are both substances known as cannabinoids, found in cannabis plants.
CBD is found in both hemp and marijuana (types of cannabis). On the other hand, THC is only found in large quantities in marijuana and hashish, so these are intoxicants. THC is what produces the psychotropic effect in marijuana, but CBD has no such effect. This means that CBD does not induce a high.
Hemp plants contain only trace amounts of THC. In the United States, the THC content in CBD oil is regulated by law; all CBD oils must not exceed 0.3 % THC. This tiny amount of THC will not produce any intoxication.
CBD is widely reported to reduce anxiety, improve sleep, and stabilize mood.
Recent peer-reviewed studies have also shown CBD's protective potential against neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's
Humans are built to handle CBD. Our bodies have what is called an endocannabinoid system, This means we have receptors that are sensitive to cannabinoids like CBD.
These receptors are concentrated in the nervous system and brain. CBD works naturally by helping to regulate your bodies existing endocannabinoid system.
Full Spectrum - Our CBD contains all beneficial compounds extracted from the hemp plant. These include terpenes such as limonene which can enhance the effect of CBD as well as provide their own unique benefits.
Effects on Your Body
The Endocannabinoid System
CBD, CBN, and THC fit like a lock and key into existing receptors. these receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system which impact physiological processes affecting pain modulation, and appetite plus anti-inflammatory effects and various immune
system responses. The endo cannabinoid system comprises of 2 receptors. As pictured (right) CB1 and CB2, both of which serve distinct functions in regulating processes in your body.
Expanse of the Endocannabinoid System
Your body naturally has CB1 and CB2 receptors which are located throughout the human body.
Studies show that CBD acts as a modifier to the CB1 and CB2 Receptors which in-turn helps
these receptors fight inflammation.
Natural Solvent Extraction VS CO₂ Extraction
Supercritical and subcritical CO₂ extraction is not the most effective method for extracting the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes out of hemp plants.
Terpenes are highly volatile compounds and can be lost quickly to evaporation under high temperatures, which is exactly what CO2 extraction machinery uses to produce CBD Oil.
Hemplus One values the preservation of these rich terpenes, and has opted for a more gentle process of natural solvent extraction over CO₂.
Solvents are superior to CO₂ at locking onto and drawing out terpenoids and cannabinoids. This ensures a terpene rich, true full-spectrum product.
How Natural Solvent Extraction Works
1) Ethanol is added to the hemp biomass.
2) The liquid solvent draws out the cannabinoids, terpenes and natural phytochemicals from the hemp in a process called Decarboxylation.
3) Solvents evaporate and leave behind CBD oil which can be distilled or further processed into an isolate.
Our process uses food grade ethanol in place of other organic solvents as a non-toxic, even edible substitute to other organic solvents.
Ethanol is a safe and commonly used preservative for mouthwash, candies, and cakes (if distilled spirits are used in the flavoring process).
Don't Buy the Hype. Natural Solvent Extraction is Superior to CO₂ Extraction for CBD tinctures and lotions (it's not recommended for vapes).
In the United States, CBD sale and use is legal on the federal level. This holds true as long as it is produced from hemp plants and THC content is below a certain threshold.
Our CBD is produced from organic hemp plants and contains less than 0.3% of THC by weight, which complies with all federal requirements.
In addition to the federal law, states in the U.S. have issued their own regulations or declarations regarding the sale, purchase, possession and consumption of hemp and CBD products. Certain states have no explicit law that either allows or prohibits the retail sales of such products.
Hemplus One cannot and therefore does not support the sale or purchase of hemp and hemp-derived CBD products in the following U.S. states:
This means that our business is not located in the above states, nor do we ship hemp or hemp-derived CBD products to customers residing there. We would love to, but we are not running in local elections anytime soon.
