There are two types of C'B'D oils on the market: those that offer C'B'D as an isolated ingredient that is either produced synthetically or completely chemically purified and those that offer C'B'D as a full-spectrum extract with all the natural and effective phytochemicals including terpenes, lipids, polyphenols, and flavonoids. The positive effects of natural extracts can far outweigh those of isolated compounds because the synergistic interplay between natural hemp compounds contributes to the "entourage effect".
Although isolated C'B'D products have a milder taste and are more affordable, we choose to offer C'B'D oils derived through a gentle ethanol extraction process that retains not only the C'B'D, but also hundreds of other cannabinoids and terpenes which all contribute to the so-called entourage effect. Moreover, CO2 extraction is a purely physical extraction process tht is free from release agents and enables us to offer a completely pure C'B'D oil derived from hemp plants. All components of our C'B'D oils are sourced from pesticide-free cultivation.
C'B'D extracts in tablets or generic capsules often contain a whole range of controversial additives that must not be declared such as synthetic vitamin E, ascorbyl palmitate, silicon dioxide, modified starch, sucrose, denatured plant oils, and maltodextrin from GMO corn. Our custom-made and powdered hemp seed oil is, however, completely free from such additives.
Since hemp seed oil powder always requires a carrier material, we have opted for a natural maltodextrin made from tapioca (non-GMO manioc root) and gum arabic made from acacia. To prevent oxidation and improve shelf life, we use natural vitamin E instead of any generic artificial preservatives. We then blend the powder with sunflower lecithin to increase the bioavailability of the fat-soluble compounds.
The only other ingredient we use is premium acacia fibre from sustainable cultivation without pesticides by top manufacturer Inavea®. In contrast to the usual synthetic fillers, we use an ultra pure natural filler that is also rich in dietary fibre. The soluble dietary fibres of acacia function as a source of bifido and lacto bacteria in the intestine. Inavea® acacia fibre is sourced from climate neutral, resource-saving and fair cultivation.
For the capsule shells we use custom-made HPMC capsules that, unlike most other HPMC and pullulan capsules on the market, are 100% free from controversial additives such as carrageenans and PEG. We then package this product in environmentally friendly amber glass.
