Our Hemp Oil is farmed in the USA and laboratory tested for purity. Our product is farm to arm. We source it directly from the grower which helps keep our pricing low. Furthermore, our grower only uses the flower to extract Hemp Oil which results in a high level of Cannabinoids. There is a lot of information available all over the internet. CBD Oil is generating a lot of excitement and confusion in the marketplace. Please see below for some general Q & A from our grower and supplier Sacred Oils:
What is CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid compound with enormous therapeutic potential. Cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid (and other) receptors in the brain and body. In addition to phyto-cannabinoids produced by the plant, there are endogenous cannabinoids that occur naturally in the body, as well as synthetic cannabinoids created by pharmaceutical researchers.
CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasm, ant-convulsant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuro-protective properties. CBD directly activates serotonin receptors, causing an anti-depressant effect.
Scientific and clinical studies have shown that CBD could be therapeutic for many conditions, including chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, diabetes, epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, PTSD, sleep disorders, alcoholism, cardiovascular disease, antibiotic-resistant infections and neurological ailments.
Academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere are currently studying the effects of CBD on these and other health problems.

Cannabidiol – Also known as CBD, cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Because of the many endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, many people believe CBD promotes restful sleep, supports normal cartilage and joint function, relieves occasional inflammation and nausea, enhances relaxation, and more.
Cannabis – A genus of flowering plants in the family Cannabaceae comprised of three species: Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, and Cannabis ruderalis.
Cannabinoid – A classification for a chemical compound found in a cannabis which acts upon cannabinoid receptors. CBD is an example of a cannabinoid.
Carrier Oil – Refers to the type of oil CBD is dissolved in. Commonly used oils are coconut oil, MCT oil, and olive oil. CBD isn’t naturally water soluble, so it must be dissolved in a carrier oil in order to be delivered in a liquid form.
CBD – Also known as cannabidiol, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. Because of the many endogenous cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body, many people believe CBD promotes restful sleep, supports normal cartilage and joint function, relieves occasional nausea, enhances relaxation, and more.
Decarboxylation – A reaction which removes the carboxyl group from a chemical compound. This is a necessary step in the CBD extraction process, as CBD naturally occurs as CBD-A before undergoing decarboxylation. This process “activates” the CBD molecule, allowing the CBD to have the desired effect when consumed orally.
Endocannabinoid System – A biological system composed of cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids, which are internal neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors. Depending on the receptor and where it is located, endocannabinoids can have different effects. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells.
Entourage Effect – Refers to a concept and proposed mechanism by which the various compounds present in cannabis can work together to cause a greater effect than they would individually.Full Spectrum – A term used to describe CBD extracts which include all of the peripheral cannabinoids and terpenes found alongside CBD. By contrast, CBD isolate consists of 98-99% CBD by mass, with no other terpenes and trace (sometimes undetectable) levels of other cannabinoids comprising the remaining 1-2%.
Hemp – A variant of the Cannabis Sativa plant species specifically grown for the industrial uses of its derived products. Hemp has low concentrations of THC and high concentrations of CBD. CBD products derived from hemp are legal for purchase in the United States as well as over 40 countries.
High Potency – A term used to describe products with a high concentration of CBD. The CBD potency of a product is usually measured in mg/ml.
Isolate – CBD in crystalline form. Isolate is comprised of >98% CBD by mass.
Sublingually – This term refers to the method of using an eyedropper to place a CBD solution beneath the tongue. Held underneath the tongue, the CBD is absorbed directly into the bloodstream via the blood vessels beneath your tongue.
Terpene – A class of organic compounds found in a variety of plants, including all forms of cannabis. Often terpenes have a strong fragrance and can have their own specific effects when ingested.
THC – THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the principal psychoactive chemical of cannabis. All of our products contain less than 0.3% THC.
Whole Plant Extract – When you see this term referring to a CBD product, it means the product contains all of the cannabinoids and terpenes naturally found within hemp were extracted from the plant alongside CBD in its creation. In contrast, isolates include only CBD and all other terpenes are excluded
