Why Use CBD
There are many CBD products on the market but the
question we must ask ourselves is,
are all CBD the same?
The answer is no!
What separates CBD Drip from other CBD products on the market is that we are a full-spectrum CBD-rich whole plant cannabinoid product.
Many CBD products on the market do not come from hemp but they utilize a low-dose THC strain of marijuana. You might think that this is better than hemp but you would be mistaken.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to tell the good CBD products from others on the market.
One way you can tell is when you hear of a company utilizing CBD isolates in its purest form. When you hear this, you should be wary because all the other parts of the plant have been removed and all that is left is basically synthesized CBD. This is done by using harsh chemical solvents like hexane and heptane.
The extraction method is important.
We believe that CBD is most effective when it's extracted using a responsible CO2 supercritical extraction method to extract the CBD, as well as, other cannabinoids, nutrients, and compounds. This way you get the benefits of the whole plant instead of just the parts.
Many products state they use supercritical CO2 or ethanol extraction, but that doesn’t mean that it is free of harsh chemical solvents like hexane and heptane. Low-dose THC strains can first go through this extraction method, but the problem is that THC limits far outweigh the federally mandated limits. To compensate for these higher than mandated THC levels, they isolate CBD by using harsh chemical solvents.
The term low-dose does not mean it’s legal.
The THC levels are still higher than federally mandated levels. Because of this they have to remove the THC from the product. One of the biggest problems is that in order to remove THC it goes through a refining process that can use harsh chemical solvents like hexane and heptane to remove the excess THC.
Most of the time the trace amounts of these harsh chemical solvents are below federally mandated reporting criteria and therefore you might be ingesting these harsh chemicals without even knowing it.
Isn’t pure CBD the best option available?
Not necessarily. Think of CBD isolate in their powdered/crystallized as calcium. Calcium is an essential for our health and well-being. What many people aren’t aware is the calcium needs vitamin D in order to be absorbed into the body. calcium has a synergistic relationship with vitamin D so that your body can absorb the calcium that it needs.
When you take pure CBD isolates you can think of it like taking calcium without vitamin D. You will still absorb the calcium but you won’t maximize the absorption of calcium without vitamin D.
Similarly, taking CBD Drip’s full-spectrum CBD-rich whole plant cannabinoid product can be thought of as taking a multivitamin instead of a single vitamin.
But why do these manufacturers of CBD not go through the same responsible methods as we do?
One of the main reasons is cost.
We know that the best full-spectrum CBD-rich whole plant cannabinoid products come from hemp, not low-dose marijuana. But due to legal restrictions by the federal government, even US grown hemp is not allowed. Therefore, we purchase organically grown hemp from Europe; which isn’t prohibited by law.
Therefore, because the cost to import and produce a full-spectrum CBD-rich whole plant cannabinoid product is very expensive. Much of the competition tries to skirt the law by using low-dose THC marijuana strains which can be illegal even if all the THC is removed.
So distributors and retailers, be wary. The product you are selling to your customers is not only less optimal, but it could result in your products being seized and your shop possibly being shut down by the federal government.
Full spectrum hemp explained
Possible benefits of utilizing a full-spectrum CBD product that doesn’t remove or destroy part of the plant is the additional cannabinoid compounds found in our CBD full-spectrum products.
Some of these additional cannabinoid products can be CBG (Cannabigerol), THC (Δ9– tetrahydrocannabinol: below maximum legal limits without using harsh chemical solvents to remove excess THC), CBC (Cannabichromene), CBGV (Cannabigerivarin), THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin), CBDV (Cannabidivarin), CBCV (Cannabichromevarin).
For instance, CBG (Cannabigerol) or Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) seems to work synergistically with other cannabinoids including CBD to provide overall synergy and balance.
When using low-dose THC strains and isolating CBD isolates you are removing CBG, CBGA, and other beneficial properties from the end product, and thus may not be as beneficial as a full-spectrum CBD product.
Another benefit to using organically grown industrial hemp as we do is that testing of industrial hemp has found to have much higher levels of CBG than most strains of cannabis. Testing has shown that levels of CBG can be up to nine times as high, as well as, maintaining a low THC level; which is lower than federally mandated limits.
So by using industrial grown hemp, we not only retain these terpenes, cannabinoids, vitamins, lipids, nutrients, and compounds but the levels of these components can be higher than most strains of cannabis.
So when you are looking for a CBD product, and you are asking
“Why should I buy CBD Drip, Rix Mix, ECO Caps, ECO Gels, or ECO Drops over other CBD products?”
