What are CBD Capsules made of?
While each capsule on the market varies in material used such as sorbitol, glycerin, and gelatin, our softgel shells are made from gelatin. Inside of our CBD oil capsules contain Hemp Extract, MCT Oil (Fractionated Coconut Oil), Glycerin 99.7%, and Purified Water for the finest of ingredients and most efficient bioavailability for the cannabinoids ingested.
Bioavailability is the measure of a substance that becomes completely available to its intended biological process. This means that if scientists understand how the chemical compounds in Hemp are used by the body, consumers have the opportunity to maximize how cannabinoids are used by the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS).
What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?
The ECS is similar to the central nervous system in regards to being a widespread and complex neuromodulatory system that has been implicated in an exponential amount of physiological functions, such as managing pain, stimulating appetite, and managing numerous psychiatric conditions.
What are the effects of CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is an effective anticonvulsant and antipsychotic, while being non-psychotropic as well. CBD has shown positive anxiolytic activity in a multitude of clinical animal trials. Scientists are aware that the body and mind can greatly benefit from cannabinoids if used in an efficient manner for the individual, although how does one healthily stimulate the ECS with hemp?
Maintaining a Healthy ECSIsolate
Isolate is an extract with virtually only the desired compound at the highest purity available.Broad Spectrum
Broad spectrum products are formulated with a desired ratio of minor cannabinoids and a low amount of THC. This may include CBC, CBG, and CBDV, although various cannabinoids are beneficial to one’s endocannabinoid system.Full Spectrum
Full spectrum products are extracted from the hemp plant with a naturally occurring amount of major and minor cannabinoids, along with naturally extracted lipids and terpenes for a valued therapeutic effect designed specifically for the individual in certain circumstances. One example of a full spectrum product would be crude extract from harvested hemp plants using a solvent or solventless extraction such as CO2, ethanol, or hydrocarbon to name a few industry standards. In most cases, crude extract is refined and winterized to clear the extract of any unwanted compounds. Winterization is the process in which unwanted compounds such as chlorophyll, lipids, and possible remaining solvents are removed from the final material to ensure the purest and most effective hemp products available.
CBD Capsules, Gummies, or Tinctures?Capsules
Our capsules contain 100% hemp derived cannabinoids, and you can ensure that you’re consuming the highest quality extracts on the market. Upon oral administration, most cannabinoids such as CBD are metabolized by the body into a compound that can be two to three times as potent as it’s neutral predecessor, which in turn creates 11-hydroxy-CBD (11-OH-CBD).Gummies
Gummies contain the exact same compounds and effects as capsules in terms of hemp derived cannabinoid content, which may include CBD or other cannabinoids.Tinctures
Tinctures are both effective at oral and sublingual administration under the tongue so as to seep into the bloodstream with maximum efficacy over a period of a few minutes. CBD is metabolized by the body into 11-OH-CBD and is made to be fully bioavailable. Due to tinctures containing a fatty carrier solution, This allows the individual a beneficial dosage with ease of use.
What are new cannabinoids such as CBN, CBC, and HHC?CBN
Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid that is formed as CBD or THC degrades. CBN offers sedative and analgesic properties in addition to stimulating bone growth. The combination of CBN and THC led to synergistic neuroprotection in scientific studies which sheds light on a promising future for hemp derived cannabinoids.
Cannabichromene (CBC) shows significant anti-inflammatory properties, promotes neurogenesis (Neurogenesis is the process of new neurons forming in the brain), and has been found to penetrate a cancer cell’s membrane along with CBG.HHC
Hexahydrocannabinol (HHC) is a novel cannabinoid produced by hydrogenation of tetrahydrocannabinol that shows anti-cancer and anti-tumor activities. Furthermore, HHC has shown anti-inflammatory properties.
