CBD is present in both the hemp and marijuana species of cannabis, and is believed to be responsible for many of the plant’s benefits. Hemp generally has higher concentrations of CBD than marijuana. In contrast, marijuana has much higher levels of THC compared to hemp. THC is the psychotropic cannabis ingredient that gets you high, and it may offer benefits such has helping with insomnia, anxiety, and pain.
Whether you are currently using CBD oils or are considering using them, it’s important to know about the different types so you can find the one that’s right for you:
Types of CBD oils
Many people are looking to capitalize on the CBD oil gold rush. This has led to some manufacturers putting cheap, inferior products on the market to maximize profits. In addition, the cannabis plants from which CBD oils derive may contain pesticides and other harmful chemicals. To avoid using a poorly-made or toxic whole-plant CBD oil, make sure that it has been tested and is free of contaminants.
Certain product companies available in the ZYTO Balance, Select, Elite, and EVOX software have digital signatures representing various CBD products for which you can scan. A bioscan will reveal whether the body prefers these items, as well as the extent to which they are biologically coherent. Along with products offered by various product companies, a generic Cannabidiol – CBD item is available to scan as well.
Phenolics, or phenols, are another substance found in cannabis that has been found to have positive health effects. Phenols are not only found in cannabis, but all other plants as well. Generally, they are powerful antioxidants that may play a role in preventing diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, phenols are known for their neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory properties. 7
What happens when you mix CBD and alcohol? Find out in this post from Synchronicity—the passionate Hemp Oil producers.
Lastly, Synchronicity uses respected independent labs to verify our claims regarding nutrient levels and efficacy of all of our products. This ensures you’re always getting the very best hemp oil products on the planet that deliver a True Entourage Effect ™ for maximum results.
Full-spectrum hemp oils are made with whole plant hemp extracts that contain all of the beneficial phytocannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN, THC and others), terpenes (beta-caryophyllene, b –pinene, humulene, and limonene), plus flavonoids, polyphenols, and other important hemp-derived phytocompounds. In contrast, some hemp oil products are made from isolate or broad spectrum concentrates, and do not contain many of the beneficial phytonutrients.
CBD and Alcohol
The hemp plant is one that keeps on giving, and when treated with respect and reverence, there is real magic that can be extracted and made from this healing crop. Hemp in the US has a long and strange history, but now that laws are loosening and the true medicinal benefits of the hemp plant are coming to light, we are able to create and provide a product that is truly changing people’s lives.
Whole plant extract and full spectrum oil have sometimes been used interchangeably. They are similar in that they both contain a wide range of cannabinoids naturally present in hemp, however whole plant extract also contains fats, waxes and other fibrous materials. It does, as is apparent in the term, use the whole plant to create a high-quality hemp oil. And when industrial hemp is used, this means that the levels of THC are close to zero. All of our products contain less than 0.3% THC, and these trace amounts lend to the true entourage effect ™ without creating a psychotoxic effect or “high”.
For every batch of our hemp oil there is a Certificate of Analysis (COA) available online. Synchronicity uses multiple accredited, third-party labs to identify, record and analyze the phytonutrient compounds in our proprietary hemp strains. We cross-breed specific strains using genetic sequencing in our R&D facility which are cultivated in our greenhouses and outdoor farms without pesticides of any kind. Our hemp flower is then independently tested to be certain it contains the highest possible phytocompound concentrations and the broadest spectrum of phytonutrients, essential terpenes, and is free of heavy metals and any impurities.
We employ complete vertical integration which ensures the highest quality control for all of our products. This allows us to control 100% of the entire operation – from hand-cultivation to refinement in our lab – which provides traceability from seed-to-bottle and guaranteed consistency. Not all hemp oils are created equal, and you’ll notice the difference in Synchronicity hemp oil products.
