Illinois doctors are turning to www.HempForFitness.com in droves for our CBD-rich hemp oil because it’s heavily screened and potent.
We have our hemp vape oil, salves, and concentrates lab tested on a regular basis to not only conform to the laws of the land, but also to ensure folks get quality product.
To show you what we test for we’ll use recent lab results from one of our hemp oil concentrates:
Full Cannabinoid Profile
More and more oncologists, neurosurgeons, chiropractors, acupuncturists, internal medicine specialists, and holistic practitioners understand the value of a full spectrum cannabinoid profile.
It’s a part of leveraging the “whole plant” value of hemp vs single-phytocannabinoids.
As you can see the results clearly show how concentrated the cannabidiol is with below the legal amounts of THC. Here’s how the cannabinoid profile breaks down in exact numbers for this sample:
A great CBD to THC ratio!
This means the hemp oil has very low psychoactive properties and what THC is present in the brain is counteracted by the CBD so people who use this oil won’t feel high or stoned.
Along with cannabinoids, our hemp oil provides a natural array of terpenes because it’s grown organically and processed safely. Terpenes are the pungent oils within the plant that give hemp oil/paste its distinct taste and smell.
They work synergistically with cannabinoids to impact the human endocannabinoid system, or ECS in fantastically positive ways modern science is only now beginning to understand.
Cannabis plants use and make these substances to maintain homeostasis. Let’s talk just a little about the 4 most active terpenes in our sample.
- Alpha Bisabolol: A common terpene often extracted from Chamomile, it’s been shown to be a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial agent. There are currently 185 research papers in PubMed pertaining to this amazing plant-based constituent.
- Beta Caryophyllene: This astoundingly powerful and influential terpene is found in tons of essential plant oils. We’re talking everything from rosemary and hops, to cloves and cannabis. Within the human ECS it binds to CBD2 receptors and provides a synergistic anti-inflammatory impact along with cannabinoids like CBD and other terpenes. In current research it shows promise as a useful tool in treating PTSD, anxiety, and depression along neuroprotective qualities.
- Caryophyllene Oxide: This is the oxygenated terpenoid that’s a common FDA approved additive already in many foods, drugs, and cosmetics. In studies it shows powerful antifungal activity, which makes perfect sense because of how efficient cannabis is at keeping itself protected from fungal invaders.
- Alpha Humulene: Another anti-inflammatory and analgesic tool that’s shown promising inhibitory effects on tumors (anti-cancer). Furthermore, it’s also showing promise as an appetite suppressant which lends itself to CBD’s ability to act as a metabolic regulator.
Pretty neat. The terpene profiles are always very interesting and they tend to vary. Each batch is going to be different because the plants/strains are unique. We believe terpene science together with cannabinoid science is going to completely transform western medicine.
Let’s look at recent lab results from our Gold CBD Oil that shows exactly what pesticides hemp products like ours are tested for.
One of the main concerns revolving around industrial hemp is that it can become a sponge, sucking toxins out of the soil. Plus, people are really unsure about what kinds of pesticides are used on industrial hemp that’s coming from outside the US.
We don’t need to get into all these, but suffice it to say that our hemp oil is clean, very clean. There are no detectable amounts of potentially harmful pesticides present. This is very comforting to our customers, especially healthcare professionals that refer patients to us that could be quite sensitive.
Like any other crop, hemp can get contaminated. From a tiny sproutling to concentrated oil, there’s always the dangers pathogens, black mold, infectious bacteria or fungus getting picked up or developed along the way.
We test to ensure our oils are medicinal-grade and perfectly safe for human consumption.
Residual Solvents Testing
Finally, we test for impurities, solvents used in the extraction process, and other adulterants that can be harmful to humans. Plus they lower the bioavailability of cannabinoids and terpenes.
How about them apples?
Now that’s a real breakdown of what clean and potent CBD-rich hemp oil looks like in lab results. It also gives you a good idea of why Illinois doctors are confident referring people to us and using our oils themselves. Thanks for reading and let us know if we can help you.
