Is CBD Hemp Oil The Next Superfood?

Hemp is enjoying a 21st century renaissance. It is being rediscovered as a useful commodity and as a superior superfood. Both hemp and natural cannabinoids are making news headlines nationwide every day, but what is CBD hemp oil and is it right for you? If this is the first time you’re hearing about industrial hemp-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil products, there’s a reason for that. Because no health claims or references to peer-reviewed studies can be made in the U.S. (due to federal regulations), there is a misconception that industrial hemp is the same as marijuana. It’s not, and word is just getting out.
People have used hemp, or “industrial hemp,” for thousands of years to make oils, fabric, rope and even food. And they’ve used marijuana for other purposes. The two are very different. Hemp and marijuana are to cannabis as oranges and lemons are to citrus. Marijuana is grown for elevated levels of THC (the psychoactive part of cannabis), and ^CBD levels must be kept low. Hemp, on the other hand, is just the opposite. It has an abundance of ^CBD (which is not psychoactive like THC) and THC is almost non-existent. The hemp oil that is produced by our special cultivars of industrial hemp is different than the hemp seed oil you find in grocery stores nationwide. We have found a way to grow hemp that makes a “super” hemp oil with much greater natural ^CBD content than grocery store varieties. We call this “natural CBD hemp oil.”
While natural CBD hemp oil may be a controversial superfood to some, we believe that the world is waking up to its many benefits. Scientists, doctors, and the general public are asking for more information about this natural constituent of the hemp plant — and we encourage you to conduct your own research, too. The more you learn about ^CBD, the more you will understand why many consider it the biggest super compound of the 21st Century.

From Plant to Oil – Our Process.

Hemp is one of the most versatile plants on the planet. The industrial and commercial use has been essential throughout human history, and continues despite strict regulations governing its cultivation today.

Look around you. Hemp can be made into almost anything you see: paper, fabric, fiber, plastics and more. Carbon negative buildings can be made from hemp concrete and hemp particle boards. Hemp can even be used for biofuel and animal feed, with the potential to rapidly change our environment and our economy for the better.

Hemp (which is of the Cannabis genus) is colloquially called “weed”; this is because hemp grows in almost every climate, without need of any human intervention. Its tall, dense agricultural footprint makes hemp naturally resistant to invasive overgrowth, and its hardy nature enables farmers worldwide to grow the crop without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. There is no need to genetically modify this robust plant, just as there would be no need to genetically modify a dandelion to assure its continued growth.

Grown as nature intended.

Due to the lingering stigma surrounding cannabis cultivation, there is no organic certification process in place for hemp in the countries in which we grow—or in the United States—at the date of this writing. However, our farmers have been farming their land for generations, and they ensure that our hemp is grown as it has been grown for thousands of years: without pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. None of these chemicals are needed when cultivating what is a very robust, fast-growing, soil-remediating herb. Our non-GMO hemp is grown in the European Union from certified EU seeds according to regulation (EU) No. 393/2013, Council Directive 2002/57/EC and Article 39(1) of Regulation (EC) No. 73/2009. This hemp oil is then processed using food-grade methods and imported to the United States under the Tariff Code 1515.90.80 (Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, Section III [“Animal or vegetable fats and oils and their cleavage products prepared edible fats; animal or vegetable waxes”], Chapter 15). From there, our laboratory further tests, harmonizes and decarboxylates our oil to ensure a constistent product with every harvest.
