More information about hemp, cannabinoids, and nano emulsification.


01.

What is hemp?

Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant species, containing less than 0.3% THC, the psycoactive cannabinoid.

02.

What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are the active compounds found in hemp and cannabis, the most common of which are CBD and THC.

03.

What are terpenes?

Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in many plants.

04.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

The active compounds (called cannabinoids) in hemp interact with your endocannabinoid system—which regulates things like mood, appetite, sleep— and affect everyone differently, just like coffee.

05.

How are the cannabinoids extracted from the plant?

The powerful compounds found in hemp, called cannabinoids, are extracted from the plant using a process called cryo-ethanol extraction and then short-path distillation. Food-grade ethanol is used to create a final distillate of the cannabinoids to their purest form.

06.

What is nano-emulsification?

Nano-emulsification is a process by which hemp extract oil is converted into smaller, water-soluble particles. This allows your body to absorb the active cannabinoids faster and more efficiently.

07.

What are the types of hemp extract?

When the cannabinoids are extracted from the plant, they are typically available in one of three forms: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, or isolate.

08.

What is full-spectrum hemp extract?

Full-spectrum extract contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes as they exsisted in the original plant.

09.

What is broad-spectrum hemp extract?

Broad-spectrum extract contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes as they exsisted in the original plant, except for THC, the psycoactive cannabinoid.

10.

What is isolate?

Isolate is when a single cannabinoid, such as CBD, is isolated and extracted from the plant.
