If you feel like CBD is everywhere, you’re not far from reality. Hemp extracts are a huge market that’s booming and with good reason. Organic CBD oil with limited processing is the ideal addition to any wellness plan. As more people turn to plant-based items to add to their daily routine, more products pop up on the market. While this is great and has a ton of potential, it’s essential to pay attention to your products’ source.
CBD OIL & INFUSED PRODUCTS POPULARITY ARE GROWING
The CBD market is booming, and the industry is expected to keep growing. One of the most prominent age groups using CBD is men and women over 50.
Nancy Giacobble told AARP in a 2018 interview about how she uses a CBD ointment for her aching joints for its beneﬁts and lack of side eﬀects during the day when she works.
“I put the salve on my hands and put on cotton gloves. Within an hour, I’m a happy person and can do a full 35-hour workweek.”
Singlecare, a wellness group that handles medication deliveries, surveyed CBD use in 2020. The company found,
- 33% of adults have used CBD once or more
- 64% of Americans are Familiar with CBD
- An estimated 64% of Americans have tried CBD in the last 24 months (2019 report)
Additionally, a 2019 Forbes report found nearly one in ﬁve Americans over 50 now use some type of CBD oil or infused product.
The Innovative CBD brand under- stands and shares these concerns. We cultivate, harvest, and process our organic plants with state-of- the-art extraction equipment. Each batch goes through extensive, third-party testing to verify the safety and potency. Customers can review every certiﬁcate of analysis (COA) on the Innovative CBD brand’s website.
The COAs also provide a breakdown of the cannabinoids and allow buyers to see our special blends of pre-de- carboxylated and decarboxylated compounds.
Our independent lab provides de- tailed quality reports that show zero levels of harmful pesticides, microbi- als, or heavy metals.
INNOVATIVE CBD OIL IS SOURCED FROM QUALITY HEMP
The biggest concerns experts have about using CBD are the lack of oversight in the cultivation and manufacturing processes. The law change didn’t create a regulatory agency to verify CBD oil and other infused products’ safety. Instead, this part is left entirely to brands.
SAFE, SOLVENTLESS C02 EXTRACTION
The second most important part of processing hemp is the extraction process. There are a few ways to remove the hemp compounds. These methods don’t share the same safety levels. Many brands go for the cheaper removal process that uses ethanol, grain alcohol that can leave behind trace amounts in the ﬁnal products.
Additionally, solvents, such as ethanol, destroy too many of the delicate hemp compounds. The beneﬁts of using plant-based wellness products come from the 545 naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, ﬂavonoids, and other essential phytochemicals.
Innovative CBD goes the extra mile and doesn’t look at the price. Instead, we use the most eﬀective and, above all, the safest CBD extraction method available—Co2 or Innovative Synergistically Present Molecular Preservation (ISMP).
We use a subcritical procedure that is slower than the supercritical method but worth the wait. This solventless process preserves most of the delicate compounds to deliver a CBD oil that’s pure and potent.
We don’t outsource our cultivation or production to large farms and manufacturers. Our all-natural, organically grown hemp is hand-harvested and processed in small batches to ensure the highest quality and safety.
CHOOSING A CBD FORMULA
The two primary CBD oil formulas are full-spectrum and broad-spectrum. These two blends have a single diﬀerence—THC. The full-spectrum or whole plant formula contains all 545 compounds, including THC. On the contrary, the broad-spectrum or THC-free blend contains 544 phytochemicals because the extraction process removes the THC while preserving the remaining compounds.
Deciding on the right formula for you is a personal decision. As mentioned, there’s not enough THC in a full-spectrum mixture to produce a high. There’s a small chance the tiny amount of THC could show up on drug screening. However, most tests don’t detect these minute levels.
Many consumers choose the whole-plant option for the entourage eﬀect, a theory regarding the beneﬁts of using all hemp’s compounds to get the best results. Experts believe that “the plant knows best.” In addition, some speculate that you can reduce negative responses by utilizing all 545 compounds.
CBD and CBDa may produce some adverse eﬀects for users. These are generally mild and can be prevented by adjusting the dose or using a more potent formula to reduce how much you need to consume. These include fatigue, nausea, and irritability. Of course, if you’re taking CBD and CBDa to improve your sleep quality, fatigue is the intended result.
CBD oil is a safe and eﬀective wellness product available in a standard tincture, edible, capsule, vape oil, and topical application. Add a daily dose to your daily routine to improve your quality of life with Innovative CBD’s all-natural, organic, hemp oil-infused products.
