What Makes Montana Pure Botanicals the Best?
Organically Grown Hemp
Our hemp is organically grown and hand-harvested on our family farm in beautiful northwestern Montana. This matters, because as a cleaning crop, hemp sucks pollutants, chemical pesticides, heavy metals, and even radiation from its environment.
During extraction, toxins absorbed by hemp plants become concentrated and when consumed can have serious negative health consequences. To ensure our extracts are free from pesticides, toxins, and heavy metals we test and certify every batch of CBD oil.
CBD plus hundreds of Phytochemicals
Cannabidiol (CBD) is just one of over 540 phytochemicals that have been identified in hemp. Each individual phytochemical has unique healing properties, and when they are consumed together research shows they act synergistically to enhance each other’s therapeutic effects.
Full Spectrum Extract
Unlike other types of CBD oil, full-spectrum hemp oil is extracted to preserve a complete profile of phytochemicals found in our hemp plants. This is easier said than done because while certain phytochemicals such as CBD are relatively stable and heat resistant, others such as terpenes are volatile and quick to vaporize.
Cold Co2 Extraction
To keep heat sensitive and volatile phytochemicals such as flavonoids and amino acids from escaping we extract using cold Co2. Natural, non-toxic, and eco-friendly, this gentle method does not cause damage or denaturing and any residual Co2 evaporates into the atmosphere, leaving a pure, potent, and unfiltered full-spectrum oil.
Diverse Healing Properties
Hemp phytochemicals have hundreds of molecular targets in the human body through which they exert their health effects. As a result, their activities can be complex and widespread. This explains how full-spectrum hemp extracts are able to produce diverse benefits for so many ailments.
Many of hemp’s phytochemicals are antioxidants with anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-viral, analgesic, anxiolytic, and growth-promoting properties that can help alleviate pain, prevent cell damage, improve immune function, and promote healing.
Some such as CBD and the terpene, Linalool, can even lead to reduced levels of the hormone cortisol. Cortisol fuels the “fight or flight” response during a crisis by stimulating collagen breakdown to free up amino acids for energy and altering or shutting down processes such as digestion, immunity, and growth that may get in the way.
By affecting cortisol levels, full spectrum hemp oil helps combat the negative consequences of chronic stress, a continuous trigger of cortisol that leads to chronic disease by derailing the body’s most critical functions for extended periods of time.
What does CBD stand for?
CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, the main active cannabinoid produced by the hemp variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species. Legally “hemp” refers to cannabis that has less than 0.3 percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by dry weight, whereas “marijuana” contains more than 0.3 percent THC.
What is CBD oil?
CBD oil is a cannabidiol (CBD) rich extract made from the Cannabis sativa plant and diluted with a carrier oil such as organic hemp seed oil or MCT. CBD oil has various health benefits and can refer to either CBD isolate, broad spectrum hemp oil or full spectrum hemp oil.
Does CBD get you high?
Cannabidiol or CBD does not get you high. Unlike it’s famous cousin tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the high producing cannabinoid in the marijuana variety of Cannabis sativa, CBD is nonintoxicating and does not produce euphoria or the high associated with marijuana.
What does CBD do?
CBD does hundreds of things in the body that have been linked to various health benefits such as reductions in inflammation, stress, anxiety, acne, wrinkles, free radical damage, and more. With at least 76 molecular targets in our bodies through which it produces its beneficial effects, CBD has a broad therapeutic profile.
What is CBD used for?
CBD is used for normalizing or bringing balance to every system in the body. It can be used for neutralizing free radicals, managing inflammation, reducing certain types of pain, helping with sleep, relieving stress, alleviating acne, and much more.
