CBD is short for cannabidiol oil, which we obtain from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp refers to the varieties of Cannabis sativa L, that under federal law contain less than .03% THC, which is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Both industrial hemp and marijuana come from the same broad cannabis species of plants, but they are genetically and chemically different and distinguished by use.
There are over 60 cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant, the most prominent of which are THC and CBD. Cannabinoids are active compounds that interact directly with our body’s endocannabinoid system.
Hemp oil is extracted from the seeds of the industrial hemp plant and is tested to ensure that it does not contain any CBD or THC. In contrast, our CBD oil is derived from the non-seed parts of the industrial hemp plant and is lab tested to ensure that the THC content is well below federal limits. Our industrial hemp plants are grown by Kentucky farmers on small plots and harvested by hand and are specially bred to contain high concentrations of naturally occurring CBD.
Every person’s body contains a specialized system called the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a biological system composed of endocannabinoid neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors and cannabinoid receptor proteins that are expressed throughout the vertebrate central nervous system (including the brain) and peripheral nervous system. CBD is a cannabinoid. Some assert that the ECS is involved in a variety of important human physical functions.
No. Our products are all made from locally grown hemp, which only has trace amounts of THC, so there is no psychoactive effect from using our products.
CBD hemp oil is very safe and non-toxic.
Our .33 fl. oz bottle is intended for 10 (1 drop) servings and is a great trial size to understand what strength is right for you. Our 1 oz bottle is 30 servings and the 2 oz bottle is 60 servings. The milligram (mg) count is similar to ibuprofen or aspirin where the higher the mg, the stronger the CBD oil. CBD Oil works best by putting drops under the tongue and letting it sit for 1-2 minutes, then swallowing. The honey squeeze can be taken the same way or put into a tea. The roll-on is to be applied directly to the skin.
Our hemp is grown, harvested, and processed in Kentucky by Acela CBD farmers. We use a high-quality fluid extraction technology that allows us to extract all the rich nutrients that exist in hemp plants (400 to be exact), without using any heat or harmful solvents. The result – a full spectrum, holistic oil that comes from the goodness of rich Kentucky soil.
We believe in encouraging and enabling all growers, especially women from all cultures and backgrounds. That’s why we created She Can’na, a group of diverse women growers and retailers of CBD oil that come together monthly to exchange ideas, information, and fellowship. Want to join the sisterhood?
