What is Hemp?
An industrial hemp harvest is legal pursuant to Colorado and Federal Statutes when tested compliant by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Oils extracted from this hemp and products offered for sale must also contain no contaminants.
The farm has developed unique genetic strains of “industrial hemp” that produces high levels of phytocannabinoids while maintaining compliance with state restrictions.
Our laboratory tests and processes the high phytocannabinoid full spectrum cannabinoid hemp using the latest extraction, post-extraction, and analytical technology to further minimize and totally eliminate contaminants from its oils.
The farm produces Hemp Oils exceeding 70% cannabinoids; distillates exceeding 80% phytocannabinoid; THC free phytocannabinoid Oils; and a phytocannabinoid crystal isolate of over 99% pure phytocannabinoid compound with “0” THC, and “0” impurities.
What is the Difference Between "Full Spectrum Hemp Oil" and "Hemp Seed Oil"?
Hemp seed oil and Full Spectrum Hemp Oil are products with a big difference.
Hemp seed oil is produced from pressed hemp seeds, usually from hemp plants grown for fiber and used as a food additive.
Hemp seed oil contains proteins and essential fatty acids including Omega 2 and 3 but only full spectrum hemp oil contains beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds.
Therefore, there is a difference in therapeutical benefits which research indicates can only be provided by the full phytocannbinoid spectrum in high phytocannabinoid whole hemp oils and the phytocannabinoids contained in its derivatives.
Hemp seed oil is often used to dilute and decrease the viscosity of whole hemp oil extracts because the oils blend well and there is the added nutritional benefits provided by the seed oil.
If ever used by the Farms, we only source USDA Certified hemp seed oil in products.
Whole hemp oil is the complete oil extracted from the leaves and flowers of hemp strains wherein the cannabinoids and terpenes are in high concentrations.
The difference in whole hemp oil is that it provides the ‘Entourage Effect’ which is the interdependent action of the various hemp phytocannabinoids on the human endocannabinoid system, which research indicates provides the optimal physical benefits.
Many report the remarkable difference in the affects on the body when a whole plant oil is consumed in place of low quality, low to zero, phytocannabinoid strength oils extracted from the stems and roots of low grade hemp imported into the US from China, Europe, and Canada.
The sources of these oils of hemp are used mostly for fiber, animal feeds and industrial lubricants.
In addition to having very low levels of phytocannabinoid achieved by adding phytocannabinoid compound isolates, they often contain heavy metals and pesticide residues.
What's the Difference Between Hemp Oil and Hemp Extract?
Hemp oil and hemp extract are names often used for oils extracted from hemp plant stalks or seeds.
The difference between these oils and full spectrum hemp oils are that they contain no phytocannabinoids unless infused with isolated phytocannabinoid compounds to produce an oil with a low percentage of only the cannabinoid.
These oils are imported from Europe, China or Canada. The FDA has tested many of these oils and found most to have very little, or no Phytocannabinoid present in the oil.
Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is a superior product extracted from the flowering buds and leaves of a broad phtyocannabinoid hemp strain, high in phytocannabinoids.
The difference from a low grade hemp oil from stalks or seeds is that it provides the desired ‘entourage effect’ and the benefits that only these superior phytocannabinoid oils can provide.
Whole hemp oil should be certified by a testing laboratory as being high in phytocannabinoids with no pesticide residues or other impurities.
Derivative products such as distillates and isolates from these oils should contain very high phytocannabinoid percentages.
