Before any of the growing or extracting processes can even begin, great research and expertise needs to be invested in choosing the right strain of hemp for the CBD products we are involved in creating.
When selecting a strain of hemp one of the key things to take into consideration is the relative levels of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). The strength of CBD is by default one of the priorities when it comes to growing hemp for CBD products, nevertheless, a low level of THC is also high up on the list of priorities. THC is the psychoactive compound that is generally associated with the ‘high’ of marijuana, in most countries for CBD products to be legally sold and distributed they must have less than 0.2% THC content. As a result all of our Full Spectrum CBD products meet this requirement.
However, and we have mentioned this before but feel it’s important to mention again, in our opinion Full Spectrum CBD products have the greatest benefits especially if you’re using it to treat a condition. The presence of THC (even though small) makes a MASSIVE difference.
We have a blog post explaining the different types of CBD that are available to buy on the market and it’s worth a read!
