How To Pick High-Quality CBD Oil

How To Pick High-Quality CBD Oil
CBD is a large industry that has grown quickly. Due to quality variations of CBD (cannabidiol) oils, it is
imperative to get accurate information about the quality of the product prior to purchase. The quality can vary substantially and directly affect the benefits. Pricing of CBD varies considerably. For example, inexpensive CBD often requires a higher dosage without reaching optimum benefit and therefore costing you more. It is in your best interest to know what you are purchasing before trying a CBD oil product. To begin the search for high quality CBD oil, look for a company licensed and registered by that state’s Department of Agriculture. Always look for American grown hemp from a state that has legalized the recreational and medical use of cannabis. Colorado, Oregon, California, and Virginia are examples of states where both recreational and medical use of cannabis is legal. These states will have stringent processing standards resulting in a higher quality product. Seek out CBD rich products derived from high resin cannabis. The genetics should be based from strains that have high quality Terpene profiles and grown with organic practices.

How It is Grown
The hemp plant is a hyperaccumulator plant. This type of plant is known for absorbing everything in the soil, this includes both essential vitamins and minerals and toxic metals. Lead, mercury, arsenic, iron, calcium, zinc, and copper are some of the toxic metals absorbed. A hemp plant grown in rich organic soil will be of higher quality. Similarly, a hemp plant that is grown in soil with heavy metals will be unsafe for regular human consumption. For better quality look for hemp grown in pots with organic soil.

After the hemp is harvested, it should be thoroughly washed to get rid of any foreign matter that may be on the plant. It should then be slowed dried in a controlled environment to maintain CBD and Terpene quality.

The best practice for farmers to use for extraction of the hemp flower oil is to use a high grade, low temperature, closed loop alcohol extraction method. During this process it is only partially decarboxilized, to maintain a high CBDA content which is extremely beneficial for many deep-rooted issues.

Many companies use inexpensive extraction practices to reduce costs and provide low priced products. Some of the practices used include toxic solvents such as propane, hexane, butane, and pentane. These solvents are all harmful for human consumption.

Always Choose a Full Spectrum (Whole Plant) CBD
High-quality full spectrum CBD oil is processed by using the whole plant. This ensures that the CBD oil contains a full range of the hemp plant’s 104 cannabinoids such as terpenes, CBD, CBC, CBG, CBN, CBDA, etc. That helps to create the full entourage effect, which can only be found in high-quality, full spectrum CBD. This is the full spectrum CBD produced at Boot Ranch Farms.

Third Party Testing
Any reputable CBD oil brands should have their product verified by an independent third-party testing facility. The lab should be an independent testing facility that has no stake in the CBD brand. These results, Certificate of Analysis (COA), should be readily available upon request.

A COA is a way to determine the composition of the CBD product. Companies selling high-quality CBD will proudly display their COA on the front page of their website.

Be cautious of companies using Isolates in their products. They strip away many of the beneficial compounds and elements that make oils of nearly 100% CBD. This inferior product is mainly made so hemp oil wholesalers can provide companies who do not farm their own hemp a consistent oil no matter where or how it is grown or processed.

Some brands try deceiving you by mentioning hemp seed oil or cannabis sativa oil or hemp seeds with no mention of cannabidiol or hemp extract. These are not the same as CBD.

Be careful of brands that claim their CBD is derived from the seed and stalk of the hemp plant. CBD is not present in hemp seed and barely any CBD is present in the stalk of the hemp plant.

Boot Ranch Farms wants you to understand how to determine CBD oil strength.
The milligram (mg) on any bottle of CBD is the total milligram (mg) in the entire bottle. Keep in mind,
bottle size does matter.

Example: A 750mg, 15ml, bottle is twice as strong as a 750mg, 30ml bottle.

The key to remember is CBD is distributed equally throughout the entire bottle.

Here is a simple formula for you to use to understand exactly how much CBD is in any bottle: Formula: Total amount of CBD in mg divided by bottle size in ml equals strength in mg/ml.

Make sure you do your research. Always purchase a full-spectrum product; preferably grown using organic practices. If you have any questions, you should be able to reach any reputable CBD company by email or phone. If you’re not sure what to look for, to find a quality CBD product, consider choosing Boot Ranch Farms. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us.

What is CBD?

The Master Grower at Boot Ranch Farms is frequently asked, “What is CBD?”. This question has many answers based on multiple different ways to grow, harvest, extract, and process CBD. Farmers trying to cut costs are not using good farming practices. Many companies are adding isotopes creating an inferior product. These practices are not putting the health and welfare of the consumer first.

CBD was first accounted for 12,000 years ago in Central Asia. CBD is short for Cannabidiol and is one of 104 naturally occurring and beneficial compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant.

Along with being a natural anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, and many more extraordinary qualities, CBD has a very similar molecular structure to that found in the human endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptors. These are found everywhere in the body from the brain and other organs to glands and immune cells.

There are currently several studies of specific receptors in our brain that accept cannabinoids known as CB1 and CB2. They are responsible for the absorption of cannabinoid molecules into your system. These are two well characterized receptors with distinct physiological properties. The CB1 receptor mediates most of the psychoactive effects of cannabinoids, whereas the CB2 receptor is principally involved in anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive actions. Therefore, selective CB2 receptor

activation has the potential to provide the anti-inflammatory effects of cannabinoids without the psychoactive effects. In a nutshell, by helping the brain understand issues within our bodies, we can help it do the healing for us.

The Cannabis Sativa plant has two well-known species: hemp and marijuana. Both contain CBD. There is a much higher percentage of CBD in hemp which also has very low (less than 0.3%) levels of THC compared to its cousin marijuana. It has been found that CBD by itself is relatively weak. By maintaining the natural terpenoids and secondary cannabinoids in the hemp flower oil (full spectrum CBD oil) a much higher quality and long-term medicinal effect is created.

Hemp Flower Oil (CBD oil) and Hemp seed oil are made from different parts of the hemp plant. Hemp oil is pressed from the Hemp seed. It is high in complex B vitamins but does not contain CBD. Don’t be fooled by companies claiming hemp seed oil as part or all of the volume of CBD oil in their products. Hemp flower oil or “CBD oil” is extracted from the Hemp flower. This is the

oil Boot Ranch Farms uses in all of our products.

Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD enter the human body via the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating body functions such as sleep, immune systems, and mood where THC produces a psychoactive feeling. CBD is entirely non-psychoactive which makes it an attractive, legal option for anyone looking to incorporate a safe, natural substance for your long-term medicinal needs
