Fractionated Coconut Oil*, Full Spectrum Hemp Oil

CBD, or Cannabidiol, although the most prominent is only one of numerous cannabinoids within the hemp plant. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive and has a lot of potential health benefits. After extracting CBD from the hemp plant we formulate it into CBD oil to make the best CBD oil for our customers.
We offer a wide variety of CBD oil samples formulated to target certain benefits. Select from full spectrum, broad spectrum, or isolate tinctures, each packed with different cannabinoids.
CBD oil tinctures may have a range of potential benefits, including reducing stress and promoting relaxation. They may also have mood-elevating and improved wellness effects.
Everyone's body chemistries are different and this may lead to different felt effects of CBD over time. We recommend taking the same dose for 1-2 weeks and observing the effects. If you do not feel the results you are looking for, increase the dose amount or frequency of dose to determine what works best for you.
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a cannabinoid that functions a lot like CBD, but it is far less abundant in hemp. CBG’s scarcity makes it harder to extract and thus more difficult (and more expensive) for consumers to find, but it’s becoming more well-known.
With nicknames like “the mother cannabinoid” and “the stem cell of cannabinoids,” CBG occupies a special place among its kindred compounds. Young hemp maintains higher concentrations of CBGa. As the plant matures, CBGa converts to THCa, CBDa, CBCa, and other cannabinoids with molecular carbon tails.
Because of this conversion, hemp extractors seeking CBG must find the perfect window before CBG shapeshifts into other cannabinoids. Advanced extraction methods and experimenting with high-CBG hemp genetics made cannabigerol oil more obtainable. But because of these inherent difficulties, CBG is more common as an isolate than a whole-plant extract. In fact, many leading brands add CBG isolate to a full spectrum CBD oil, which is anything but a full spectrum CBG oil.
CBG and CBD parallel in many ways, but each is thought to possess nuanced characteristics as well. Both cannabinoids are non-psychoactive, unlike THC, and they interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a recently-discovered cell-signaling system located throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. It consists of endocannabinoids, receptors the cannabinoids bind to, and enzymes that break the cannabinoids down to elicit a bodily response. Just like how a caffeinated cup of coffee boosts focus or a sugary cupcake can create a happy feeling in the brain, each endocannabinoid creates its own response in the ECS.
CBDa (cannabidiolic acid) is another of the many chemical compounds that you can find in cannabis and hemp. It can be thought of as the raw form of CBD, and itself comes from CBGa (the mother of all cannabinoids). Here’s some more detail about the chemical processes that lead to the creation of CBDa:
CBDa is born from CBGa breaking down before it has time to be converted to CBG. The simplest way to think about the process is the hemp plant producing CBGa to fuel its growth as it matures. Then, the CBGa either converts to CBG through heat and sunlight, or the plant breaks down the CBGa during its growth cycle to naturally convert it to CBDa, THCa, and CBCa. Each of these three cannabinoids can be converted, by the same conditions, to their non-acidic compounds. THCa becomes THC, CBCa becomes CBC, and finally, CBDa turns into the CBD that most consumers are familiar with.
CBGa is getting its own turn in the spotlight. Cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) is one of over 100 cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. Many refer to CBGa cannabinoids as the “mother of all phytocannabinoids.” It is essentially a foundational compound of the cannabis plant, one of the very basic building blocks that all cannabinoids come from. CBGa breaks down into other molecules, including cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCa). What’s more, CBGa is what’s known as an acidic precursor to CBG, which means that CBGa converts to CBG under the right conditions – usually with heat and/or sunlight.
CBGa and CBDa have become the subject of a recent study on how cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system and overall health. The research found that two cannabinoid acids commonly found in hemp, cannabigerolic acid, CBGa, and cannabidiolic acid, CBDa, can bind to proteins that cause unwellness. By binding to the protein, the compounds can potentially offer new avenues to support immune wellness.
What sets us apart from other CBD companies is that we’re not only a brand, we’re also a cGMP lab. Owning and operating every aspect of the manufacturing process from plant to product brings a high level of pride, quality, and ownership. Many of our product lines feature a variety of minor cannabinoids, including CBD, CBDa, CBG, CBGa, CBN, and CBC, specially formulated to promote consumer wellness. Reading through our customer reviews and social media posts, one hears the stories of hardship and healing. These stories serve to remind us of our founder’s original intent, and what animates us toward a shared vision of plant-based wellness accessible to all.
