15 Aug Which Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ is Right for Me?
Here at HempMeds®, we offer three different label options in our Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™): Green Label, Blue Label, and Gold Label. This guide was prepared to help you choose the RSHO™ label that works best for your individual needs.
What is RSHO?
RSHO™ is HempMeds®’s pure non-GMO hemp oil, unmodified and sourced straight from the hemp plant. RSHO™ is extracted from hemp cultivated free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides in the foothills of Northern Europe. An excellent source of cannabidiol (CBD) without the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), RSHO™ is sold as a dietary supplement, RSHO™ is available for purchase and shipment to your front door in all 50 states in the U.S. and over 40 countries internationally.
Our Green Label RSHO™ is closest to the organic makeup of the natural hemp plant of our three label types. We do not decarboxylate** our Green Label RSHO™ after extracting it from the hemp plant, so the oil is kept in its raw form, similar in idea to juicing the hemp plant. Because we do not decarboxylate our Green Label oil, the cannabinoids present in the oil are largely left in their acidic form. Higher in cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) than our other oils, our Green Label oil is the popular choice among those looking to capitalize on the effects of these unadulterated cannabinoids. Besides CBD and CBDa, our Green Label oil is also a great source of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and other trace cannabinoids. Because of its minimal processing, our Green Label RSHO™ has the lowest price point of our RSHO™ types.
The same base CBD hemp oil as our Green Label, the Blue Label hemp oil has been put through an additional decarboxylation** step, heating the oil slightly to change the molecular structure of the oil’s cannabinoids, transforming the plant’s CBDa to CBD. With a CBD content of around 17%, depending on the batch, RSHO™ Blue Label oil is an excellent source of CBD, without sacrificing the chlorophyll and many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids present in our unfiltered oil. Blue Label RSHO™ is our mid-priced product, maximizing CBD content while retaining the hemp plant’s natural composition.
Similar to our Blue Label oil, our Gold Label RSHO™ has been decarboxylated** to modify its natural CBDa to CBD. Additionally, our Gold Label RSHO™ is put through an extra filtration process to remove the hemp plant’s excess waxes, chlorophyll, and other plant material. This purification stage refines our oil to a golden color, removing much of our Green and Blue Label’s “green” chlorophyll taste. This process also leaves our Gold Label oil as the most potent of our products, maximizing the CBD content to approximately 24% per batch.
In addition to our RSHO™ pure CBD hemp oil oral applicators, our three RSHO™ label types are also available in liquid and capsule form, offering varying potencies and methods of consumption for your RSHO™ CBD supplements.

**decarboxylation: In the raw hemp plant, cannabinoids are present in their acidic form, such as THCa and CBDa. Heating the cannabinoids causes them to decarboxylate or lose a carboxyl group (CO2+H), “activating” them for use by the endocannabinoid system. This is the process that turns CBDa to CBD. Decarboxylation changes the cannabinoids on a molecular level, allowing them to “fit” or bind to the body’s CB receptors.
The decarboxylation is a delicate process, as excessive heat (beyond 300 degrees fahrenheit) for too long can degrade the cannabinoids, decreasing their efficacy, and strip the oil of valuable terpenoids and flavonoids.
