When you are looking for a THC-free CBD oil, you don't have to settle for CBD isolate. There are benefits to a clean CO2-extracted broad spectrum oil, due to the presence of other cannabinoids (CBC, CBG, CBN, and others) as well as the terpenes that are naturally present.
All our CBD is organically grown in Colorado. We offer THC-free oil as a 100% hemp option (no carrier other than hempseed oil), unflavored, peppermint, or orange. The flavor oils we use are 100% natural, cold pressed or steam-extracted oils, sourced from organic farms.
We also offer this 100% hemp oil as THC-free CBDx™, our enhanced CBD with additional natural (non-structured) terpenes extracted from hemp. Additional natural (non-structured) terpenes extracted from hemp are added giving it an ideal "headspace" and making it perfect for therapeutic use. It has a strong and pleasant cannabis aroma.
The natural (non-structured) terpenes that we enhance the regular CO2 extract with are not the manufactured ones you can find for sale. They are a special-made extraction and not found in other CBD supplements on the market. We only have them because of our connection with the right growers. They are the reason CBDx has such a powerful aroma and is more effective than competitor products.
Aside from the clear longevity benefit that is currently being studied, CBD has several well-researched and established benefits.
One very remarkable benefit of CBD oil is the ability to induce neurogenesis.* CBD promotes an anti-flammatory response in the body, particularly the brain, acting as an antioxidant and neuroprotectant.*
There is one area of the brain that is especially targetted by CBD, which is the hippocampus, an area that is significantly prone to the ravages of aging. It is the assciated with spatial and episodic memory.
In a 2013 study on mice published by Cambridge University Press, CBD induces the formation of new neurons (brain cells).* The formation of new brain cells is one of the body's critical processes that is observed to decline with age, and is directly associated with longer lifespans. (The same reason endorphins correlate to longer lifespans.)*
The most often reported effects from taking CBD are:
• A feeling of relaxation and calm*
• Joints feel better*
• Deeper sleep*
Bone strength is a less obvious benefit of CBD. observed to decline with age, and CBD has a proven ability to promote stronger bones by assisting in the formation of collagen.*
When we've asked people about benefits they've noticed from taking CBD, occasionally someone will note the positive effect on the skin. The reason it helps the skin is the same reason it helps the bones, due to assistance in collagen formation.*
The broad spectrum THC-free CBD oil we offer is a superior option as a general CBD supplement, in part because many people have to undergo drug testing and those drug tests will sometimes pick up even the small amount of THC found in CBD supplements. CBD supplements sold by other companies might be very low in THC, but they are not THC-free unless they use CBD isolate.
If you want the superior benefits of a broad spectrum CBD oil, but also the benefits of THC-free, Folium Biosciences offers this. According to them, "The absence of detectable THC is confirmed through High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) tests and the State of Colorado." Our own tests have not turned up THC, as would be expected.
All our CBD oil which we market as THC-free is purchased from Folium Biosciences. Their oil meets our quality standards because it is CO2 extracted and grown in farms in La Junta, Colorado under organic conditions.
