CBD Hemp Oils are all the craze in 2021 - and for good reason! But it can be challenging to understand all the new terms and differentiate between products. That's why we've created this quick guide to help you navigate this new and exciting world. We will begin by stating that Hemp Oil is not Hemp Seed Oil. They are both derived from the same plant, of course, but their origin and composition are completely different.
CBD Hemp Oil is the essential oil of the hemp plant itself (cannabis sativa). While there is some oil in the plant's leaves and stalks, the highest concentration of oil is found within the big beautiful flowers at the top of each branch of the female hemp plant. Tiny oil droplets dot the pistils and are visible to the naked eye. Every droplet contains more than 480 plant compounds. Over 120 of these compounds are called "cannabinoids" - active plant chemicals unique to the hemp plant.
Each one of us has an endocannabinoid system within our bodies. This system of chemical receptors is responsible for two main functions – 1. regulating pleasure and well being, and 2. nudging the body back to health when faced with disease or injury*. Full spectrum CBD hemp oil contains powerful cannabinoids that work and communicate with our own endocannabinoid systems.
Cannabidiol, the technical name for CBD, is the most prominent and dynamic cannabinoid found in hemp oil and has been linked to a myriad of health benefits affecting multiple systems within the body. Our Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil also contains CBG, CBC, and naturally occurring THC - but always below the legal limit of .3% and never psychoactive.
Full Spectrum CBD Hemp Oil is also rich in terpenes – biologically active essential oils that give hemp its vibrant smell and flavor. Our Full Spectrum Hemp Oil consistently tests high in terpenes Beta-Caryophyllene, Myrcene, Bisabolol, Humulene, Guaiol, and Linalool – each having their own unique therapeutic properties.
Whenever you purchase one of our organic CBD products, we provide you with the full third-party laboratory report (COA) detailing all cannabinoids and terpenes present in your oil blend. These reports also demonstrate the absence of pesticides, microbials, and heavy metals - available to view by batch number right here on our website.
At Montana Pure Botanicals, our mission has always been to grow, harvest, and extract the purest full spectrum CBD hemp oil in the world - and we believe we are doing just that!
