Mimi says the effective oils are made from the marijuana plant, not hemp. Why are you rating only hemp oils? Are hemp oils the only oils that do not have any THC? The other question that arises is the difference between ml and mg in measuring the strength of these oils. They are quoted as ml, but there is the question of the “density” limit of 95mg? Very confusing.
Receptra Naturals CBD products are derived from proprietary CBD rich hemp, grown on family owned and operated farms in Colorado using 100% organic farming practices on select organic soils without the use of pesticides or fungicides. I got to know the folks at Receptra while dealing with Charlotte's Web Botanicals and continued to stay in contact when they left CW to form Receptra.
At a molecular level, CBD (short for cannabidiol) is CBD, regardless of which plant it comes from. The only difference comes from the full extract that is taken from the plants. Here’s what we mean: Once the plants are harvested, the lab removes the nutrients, including CBD, from the plants in the form of a gooey extract. This extract includes the CBD, but also so much more and this gooey extract is what goes into all the CBD products*. There are actually many cannabinoids other than just cannabidiol (CBD). Some are CBC, CBG, CBN and even THC. THC is the compound found in marijuana that causes the “high” or psychotropic or euphoric effect. As most of us know, marijuana naturally has a fairly high level of this compound. Hemp naturally has a very low level, so low that no one reports any sort of high when using the extract from hemp.

Generally, CBD oil is made by combining an extract with a carrier fluid or oil. This question is best answered by looking at how the CBD oil was extracted. CBD oil can be extracted using CO2 systems or by using chemical solvents. Both methods produce a CBD oil byproduct that is then combined with a fluid like MCT oil, coconut oil, or olive oil so that it can be delivered to the body. Always check to make sure you know the CBD content of the products you purchase.
Available in either milk or dark chocolate, it packs 60 milligrams of CBD into a 30-gram bar, along with a host of organic ingredients. Each bar has CBD spread evenly throughout, meaning you can track just how much CBD you take with each bite. You can easily adjust your serving size by simply eating more or fewer segments until you find the right balance for you.
But is there a possibility of CBD oil getting you high? Well, CBD oil comes from the extracts of hemp plants, which do contain very low levels of THC. If the extraction method used to get the CBD oil cuts corners or is done incorrectly, though, there is a chance that THC levels will be great enough to produce a high. This is where we can refer back to point number one – affordability vs quality!
“Barely in its infancy, the CBD medical market is still largely unregulated; quality control is meager at best, and consumers are largely unaware what to look for when shopping …,” explains Carlos Frias of the Texas Wellness Center. Frias, who has been with the cannabis industry for more than 15 years, has seen, firsthand, the shadiness that exists in the CBD market.
Watch Out For: Companies that do not have test results or refuse to give them to customers. Also be wary of companies who only test one batch of finished product and then assume that all future batches will be the same – big mistake. Hemp is a product of nature and thus, no two batches will ever be identical – even in the most regulated environment. The company must provide you test results for the actual product you intend to purchase as well as the plant material used to make it – otherwise you are jeopardizing your safety and the medical efficacy of the product.
It’s important to research in order to purchase the right product. Always use personal discretion when making purchases both in-person and online. Further, don’t always go for the cheap products but instead be willing to pay the price for a quality product. If you want to reap the benefits of excellent quality, then you have no choice but to pay a substantial amount for it. Also, remember to check labels for any indication of the ingredients that make the product making sure it is hemp oil CBD. Any product that comes without a label or indication of ingredients is illegal and potentially dangerous. Even though no regulation exists, it is always good to take measures to ensure your own safety.
Some companies will hide under a cloak of darkness that the Internet can provide, but it’s a pretty good sign if the company lists an honest-to-goodness phone number you can use to reach real people. The companies with inferior products will often be very difficult to reach. Before ordering, try to reach out to the company. If someone picks up the phone or gets back to you in a timely manner, you’ve probably found a company that not only takes accountability seriously, but cares about their customers and the quality of their products.
