About the Blend: From The Ananda Apothecary, cannabidiol CO2 extract in MCT Coconut oil with Rosemary antioxidant added to preserve freshness. Our '100' formula means 100% CBD extract in carrier oil.*
Our CBD '100' contains pure CBD CO2 extract in MCT Coconut oil. Each of our ingestable formulas contain 1mg of CBD in each 2 drops. 5ml contains 102mg CBD, 15ml contains 306mg, 30ml contains 611mg CBD, and 100ml contains 2038mg CBD.
Our CBD Formulas are different!
Many formulas make it difficult to accurately measure the amount of CBD you are using. However, because our formulas contain 1mg CBD in every two drops, the measurment is simple.
What is CBD?
If you want to really want to learn all you can, here is a peer-reviewed journal article about CBD and how it works in the body - and why certain formulations are better than others. See CBD, Nature's Most Profound Synergy Yet.
Briefly, cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituentof the hemp plant. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid. The CBD extract from which all our blends are made is a full spectrum extract of a Hemp strain of Cannabis sativa. Hemp is ideal for cannabidiol (CBD oil) extractions as it is naturally high in CBD and low in THC. Because of the extraction from legally grown and extracted Hemp, it is legal for shipment to all 50 states.
Our cannabidiol (CBD oil) extract is a full spectrum cannabinoid extract. Besides the high content of CBD there are also present naturally occurring trace amounts of other cannabinoids, which many scientists and doctors think work in synergy to support the whole human endo-cannabinoid system.
Most preclinical studies with cannabidiol utilize synthetic, single-molecule CBD produced by biochemical laboratories for research purposes – whereas whole plant CBD-rich extractions typically include trace amounts of THC and more than 400 other compounds, which interact synergistically to confer a holistic “entourage effect” so that the therapeutic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
How is CBD made, and how do we ensure the same quality from batch to batch?
The CBD oil is extracted through supercritical CO2 extraction of 'industrial' Hemp (Cannabis sativa), which naturally has a very low concentration of THC. The raw CBD oil is then further refined to remove plant waxes and concentrate the CBD. Each batch is analyzed via High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to quantify its purity, and guarantee you receive precise amounts of CBD in each and every one of our formulations. See the Certificate of Analysis here.
Our testing ensures you are receiving the concentration of CBD you're paying for, and that there is no more than a trace of THC, and to ensure there are no pathogens in the oil whatsoever (yeast, mold, fungus, etc.)
Why are they based in MCT Coconut Oil, and preserve freshness?
MCT Coconut oil is used to emulsify the CBD CO2 extract for more simple and accurate use. Whereas some formulators use Hempseed oil, it does contain oxalic acid, which may be contraindicated for some users (in particular, for children whom experience seizures). We DO actually recommend supplementation with Hempseed oil if this is safe for you – it's exceptionally good for you in many ways.
This MCT fraction of coconut oil is the Medium Chain Triglycerides, which make up 62% of Virgin Coconut oil. It is also often used as a dietary supplement, and has an exceptionally long natural shelf life (relative to Olive oil, which is also used for emulsifying CBD extracts). We think this the very best choice for retaining all properties of the formula for the longest time (shelf life is over 2 years). We've also added organic Rosemary antioxidant to every formula - the VERY best antioxidant available!
We package our CBD in the World's finest bottles!
We also package our CBD formulas in Miron Glass Violet bottles. The 'high-tech' Violet Glass has the greatest resistance to UV light penetration of any glass container, and is even thought to enhance the activity of natural products within it by letting only a small window of the light spectrum through it. This particular wavelength is considered to have "vibrationally-enhancing" properties by the Swiss manufacturer.
Use and Serving Size:
Shake well before using. The amount of CBD oil that people take on a daily basis can vary greatly. Many individuals start by using 20 drops, 2 times per day. We encourage our customers to experiment with their intake, and do their own research for optimal intake for their specific needs. CBD oil can be ingested morning or night, on an empty or full stomach.
Note that cannabinoid compounds have 'biphasic' properties, whereby small doses and high doses of the same substance can produce opposite effects. CBD has no known adverse side effects at any dose, but 'too much,' while not harmful, could be less effective therapeutically than a moderate dose.
