What is Hemp Oil Made From?

What is Hemp Oil Made From?

As its name suggests, hemp oil comes from the hemp plant. However, hemp oil is more complex than it appears on paper. Hemp oil is a valuable health supplement and has a detailed development process. To understand the benefits of hemp oil, it is important to understand how it advances from plant to final product.

Hemp Oil Vs Hemp Seed Oil

It is a common misconception that hemp oil and hemp seed oil are the same. Hemp seed oil can be bought at your local grocery store and is used in cooking products or topical products such as soaps and lotions. Although hemp seed oil is sourced from hemp plants, it is not the same as hemp oil. Hemp seed oil comes from the seeds of the cannabis plant and does not contain any CBD, the main ingredient in hemp oil. Hemp oil is derived from the leaves, stalks, and flowers of the cannabis plant and contains high amounts of CBD.

Where Does Hemp Oil Originate?

At Made By Hemp, we source our hemp oil from industrial hemp plants grown on European farms. Not only do these farms provide a quality product, but importing our oil makes it legal to purchase and sell in all 50 states.

You may be wondering why we import our hemp oil rather than source it from the U.S. Two major factors play into this. Currently, U.S. farmers are not permitted to grow hemp for commercial use. By sourcing our hemp oil from Europe, where hemp farming for commercial use is permitted, we are able to sell our hemp oil legally across all 50 states.

Additionally, European hemp farmers have decades of experience. European cultivators are worldly-acclaimed hemp producers. In order to provide the highest quality products, we source the highest quality hemp.

How is Hemp Oil Extracted?

Hemp oil must be extracted properly if it is to offer the full benefits of CBD. Cannabidiol can be extracted in a number of ways and the quality of extraction is of the greatest importance.

We receive hemp oil that is extracted using a CO2 extraction method. In this method, carbon dioxide is exposed to high pressure and low temperature. This method is complicated but is the safest and cleanest method of extraction. By using hemp oil that has been extracted using a CO2 method, we can provide clean and pure CBD products.

What is Your Testing Process?

Once the hemp oil is extracted, it is imported into the U.S. and is then lab-tested. After such, we receive the hemp oil in our Michigan facility. Once we receive the hemp oil, we send out a 1g sample of each batch to a third-party cannabis testing lab. The lab uses high-performance liquid chromatography to determine the cannabinoid potency and checks for any impurities. Only after all tests well do we proceed with using the oil to create our hemp products. As an extra quality control measure, we also consistently send blind samples of our products to a third-party lab to test for potency and purity.

What’s in Your Raw Hemp Oil?what's in raw hemp oil

CBD is the main ingredient in raw hemp oil. CBD is a legal cannabinoid and has been studied for the way it reacts with the endocannabinoid system to promote well-being. CBD oil is a natural solution with no psychoactive or intoxicating effects. Along with CBD, plant material and phytonutrients are present in raw hemp oil. Phytonutrients are natural plant chemicals that provide benefit to keep the body functioning at its best.

 

 

 

What’s in Your Other Hemp Oil Products?

CBD remains the most important ingredient in our hemp oil products. At Made by Hemp, we value all-natural ingredients with no added chemicals or synthetic substances. To give our products different uses and benefits, we add certain ingredients such as coconut oil or plant terpenes for flavor. When you shop our CBD hemp oil products, there is always a list of ingredients available for you to read.

How Do You Use CBD Oil?

CBD oil is available in many forms. Part of what makes CBD oil so appealing is its versatility. No matter your preference of CBD consumption, there is an option suited for you.

best cbd products

There are many ways to use CBD oil, from tinctures to vape and concentrates to capsules. At Made By Hemp, our goal is to offer all things hemp, giving our customers the opportunity to find what works best for them.

If you’re new to CBD oil products, you may be wondering: how do you use CBD oil? Don’t feel intimidated by the different forms and concentrations that are available: we’re here to help! Getting started with CBD oil is an easy process; it’s simply a matter of determining what your wellness goals are and what method suits your lifestyle.

Serving Sizes

It is important to note that when it comes to CBD, serving sizes are not one-size-fits-all. While we can make recommendations, we cannot tell you the exact amount of CBD to take, because everyone is different.

As with any change to our routine, our bodies need time to adjust. Finding the correct amount of CBD oil to take might require some experimentation. We suggest starting with the recommended serving size and working your way up from there. There have been few side effects of CBD reported, so experimenting with CBD oil is a safe method to discover how much you should take.

Methods of Taking CBD Oil

How do you use cbd oil

As mentioned previously, there are many methods of taking CBD. Discovering which method is best for you is determined by your lifestyle and supplement preferences.

Once you’ve chosen your best method, you need to know how to use it! This blog is meant to act as a comprehensive guide of how to use our most popular CBD products.

How to Use Pure Hemp Oil

How to use pure CBD oilOut of all our CBD products, pure hemp oil has the highest concentration of CBD. These oils are extracted right from the hemp plant and have no added ingredients. Pure hemp oil has a thick, paste-like consistency and is usually taken sublingually (under the tongue). For those with advanced wellness goals, pure hemp oil is a great fit, as it is a highly concentrated form of CBD.

To use pure hemp oil sublingually, dispense the serving size onto the back of your hand, a spoon, or directly under your tongue. The suggested serving size is about the size of a grain of rice, but again, your serving size may differ. Once you have dispensed the oil, place it underneath your tongue and wait 60-90 seconds before swallowing.

How to Use Tinctures

how do you use cbd oilTinctures are CBD oil in a liquid form that has added ingredients such as natural herbs and essential oils to improve flavor. These supplements are delivered through a dropper and servings can be easily adjusted. Tinctures come highly recommended due to their range of flavors and strengths.

Tinctures are used sublingually. The recommended serving size varies but is commonly a dropper-full. To use, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients. Open the bottle and draw your preferred serving size with the dropper top. Release the serving under your tongue and wait 60-90 seconds before swallowing. For more information about tinctures, visit this blog.

How to Use E-Liquids

CBD oil in an e-liquid form can be consumed using a vaporizer. Vaping allows CBD to quickly enter your bloodstream for fast-acting results. By using e-liquid, you can get the benefits of CBD oil through the relaxing act of vaping. Made By Hemp sells e-liquid in a variety of products; each product has slightly different directions.

How to vape CBD oil

Prefilled cartridges are attached to a vape battery and are then thrown away after use. To use the Alternate Vape Vape Shot, twist the disposable tank onto the battery. Breathe in through the mouthpiece to vape. Make sure not to take more than three puffs in quick succession as it may damage the coil.

As you breathe in through the vaporizer pen, lights around the bottom of the pen will light up in red. If they do not light up or start blinking intermittently, that means your battery needs to charge. Twist off the battery and twist it onto the USB charger. Charge the battery through your computer or use a USB wall charger.

Vape oil is filled into a compatible vaporizer and is then vaporized. Directions for vaporizing may vary depending on the pen you choose. When you purchase the Alternate Vape CBD Vape Oil, you have the option of purchasing the kit, which has everything you need to begin.

If you’re new to vaping, the many methods of vaping may be confusing. To learn more about vaping, visit our blog about the best vape pens for beginners.

How to Use Capsule Supplements

Capsules are a familiar way to take CBD oil. These supplements are available in a range of concentrations and fit into a variety of lifestyles due to their ease of use. Capsules have a slow release, so we recommend taking your supplement one to two hours before your preferred release time.

Taking a CBD capsule is similar to the capsules you are familiar with. Simply consume the capsule by washing it down with your preferred liquid.

Using CBD Oil

It’s important to know the proper way to use CBD oil, no matter which method you determine to be your best fit. If you still have questions on how to take CBD oil, contact us.

What Does CBD Stand For? (And What is it?)

What Does CBD Stand For

What Does CBD Stand For? (And What is it?)

With its recent rise in popularity, you might have heard about CBD products, but what does CBD stand for and how is it used? CBD stands for cannabidiol (can·na·bid·i·ol) which is naturally found in hemp plants. Understanding CBD is the key to knowing how hemp oil supplements work and why this compound has captured the attention of so many scientists.

About CBD

We now know what CBD stands for, but what exactly is it? CBD is a natural substance obtained from hemp plants that can promote wellness without any psychoactive or intoxicating effects. It is an active compound known as a cannabinoid.

Cannabinoids are the molecules which give the cannabis plant its medical and recreational properties. CBD is used more for its health purposes. The most well known cannabinoid is tetrahyrdocannabinol (THC), which is what is used for the recreational function of the cannabis plant.

CBD from Hemp vs CBD from Marijuana

When a person is interested in taking CBD for the first time, they should know where it is sourced from. CBD from Hemp is much different than CBD from Marijuana.

(Learn more about the difference between Hemp and Marijuana) 

CBD from Hemp contains little to no THC, therefore it does not cause a “high”. When sourced from Marijuana, CBD will be found in conjunction with THC, and the THC would obviously cause a psychoactive effect. Marijuana is currently illegal, unless you are in a state which allows for medial or recreational uses. Hemp is legal in all US states, as long as it is properly sourced.

More info about properly sourced hemp >> Is CBD Hemp Oil Legal in the United States?

CBD Product Types

There are a wide variety of CBD products on the market. At Made by Hemp, we offer CBD in the form of pure hemp oil, tincture extracts, oil concentrates, vape oils, and even oils for pets! You can also choose from many CBD infused foods such as chocolates, gum, or gummies. Hemp oil has a pretty strong and distinct taste (think earthy) so some decide to purchase capsules instead of raw forms or oils. If flavor is added to the oils however, they taste a lot better.

CBD has to be ingested; pure oils and tinctures are taken sublingually. This means you place the oil under your tongue, wait 1-2 minutes and swallow. Vape oils must be inhaled using a special vaporizer e-pen.

How Do You Use CBD Oil?

CBD can also be used topically. Skin and beauty products made from hemp are all natural and good for the skin. Many athletes enjoy using CBD salves on their joints and muscles before and after workouts to help with soothe aches and pains from rigorous exercise.

Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Products

hemp products

Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Products

In recent years there has been a rise in the popularity of natural products, particularly products derived from hemp. These hemp products are made with cannabidiol oil extracted from industrial hemp plants. The FDA considers hemp products with cannabinoids to be in the category of nutritional supplements and not medication. The following three points are the top three things you should understand about hemp products.

CBD & Hemp Products

If you want to get the most out of hemp products, you should be an informed customer first. Educating yourself on the topic is the best way to gain an understanding on what you’re putting in your body. CBD products are found in different forms, sizes, and flavors. When comparing the amount of CBD in products, take into consideration the total volume of product. For instance, by volume, a 1oz bottle with 200mg CBD is stronger than a 2oz bottle with 300mg CBD.

Another thing to consider is that some hemp products just show a total amount of hemp oil, not the total amount of CBD specifically. Even though hemp oil offers beneficial properties on its own and does contain CBD within it, if you are specifically buying CBD products for the CBD content, you should consider the level of CBD and not of hemp oil.

How Are Hemp Products Used?

Pure hemp oil should be consumed like a nutritional supplement. CBD hemp oil is found in many types of foods and is available even in the forms of chewing gum, drops and capsules. The concentrated CBD hemp oil may be infused in body and skin care products so that they may be used topically.

CBD drops also have different levels of CBD concentration. Concentration is about the abundance of CBD when it is compared to the total volume of a product. With hemp oil, the products can range from normal strength to super-high CBD concentrations. The concentration you decide on will depend on the CBD effects you are looking for.

Why Made by Hemp

Made by Hemp has some of the best quality products that the CBD hemp market has to offer. This is because not only do we manufacture many of our products in our own lab, but we have them tested in a 3rd party lab for their efficacy and potency. With this extra control over quality, we are confident that we are proving you and your family with the best possible product. If you have any questions, contact one of our customer service personnel and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Everything You Need to Know About Hemp Oil Tincture

hemp oil tincture

What is a Hemp Oil Tincture?

If you’re new to hemp oil, you may be wondering what they are and what they can do for the body.

The active ingredient in a hemp oil tincture is cannabidiol (CBD), which is a natural chemical compound found in the oil. It interacts with and supports the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is extremely important for regulating processes in the brain, central and peripheral nervous system to keep the body in balance.

Another common ingredient in hemp oil tinctures is hempseed, which comes from pressed hemp seeds. It can be unrefined or cold pressed oil which looks clear light or dark green with a nutty flavor. When the oil looks darker, it will have a grassier flavor. Hemp oil should not be confused with hash oil. Hash oil is made from the Cannabis flower and has a different chemical makeup that causes psychoactive effects.

What Does it Look Like?

CBD hemp oil is a fairly dark liquid with an earthy flavor. It can stain clothing, so be careful.

Refined hempseed oil looks colorless and clear and it has little flavor and it lacks antioxidants and natural vitamins. Refined hempseed is normally used in beauty products. Industrial hemp seed is used in lubricants, plastics, fuel, inks, and paint. It can also be used in detergents, shampoos, and soaps. This oil has a high level of nutritional value, with omega 3 essential fatty acids and omega 6 in the perfect ratio required for the human body.

What is it Made Of?

A hemp oil tincture is made with oil that has been CO2 extracted from the industrial hemp plant. It’s non-psychoactive, legal in all 50 U.S. states, and has incredible properties that support the body.

While CBD hemp oil is the main ingredient, there’s usually one other base oil blended with it to make it a runnier consistency. The most common are, for obvious reasons, hemp seed oil. However, that oil does have a strong nutty flavor, so some companies use grapeseed or coconut oil instead. It’s completely up to personal preference which base ingredient you want since the most important thing is the CBD-rich hemp oil.

Regardless of what the hemp oil is mixed with, sometimes the flavor is still pretty earthy. That’s why some hemp oil tinctures have natural and organic flavors blended in, making the product much easier to take for some people.

What are the Benefits?

Hemp oil products are now sought out because of the high level of CBD. The oil has now started to appear on the shelves of specialty stores and health food stores after the growing awareness about its many benefits. There is no need to get a medical card for purchasing CBD products made from imported industrial hemp oil. Most of this hemp oil comes from European farms. Hemp oil from China is cheaper, but the purity may be questionable. We recommend making sure the hemp oil comes from Europe and asking for a certificate of analysis (COA) from the manufacturer. A COA is a lab report from a cannabis testing facility, which shows a number of cannabinoids in the product.

Industrial hemp oil is commonly imported to be used in nutritional supplements, food, building materials, and textiles. Thanks to the 2014 Farm Bill, imported hemp oil can be used, while domestic hemp still faces legal obstacles. CBD can be found in all types of cannabis; whether it be hemp or marijuana. With hemp, you can enjoy CBD without the risk of a high. It’s important to note that CBD is CBD, no matter where it comes from. So CBD from one type of cannabis isn’t “better” than CBD from another type.

Hemp oil may be frozen for longer storage period. Most hemp oil tincture does not use preservatives because it’s an oil…so it will last a long time unless it’s mixed with other ingredients that cut the shelf life. Most manufacturers have a 1-year shelf life on their products when stored in a “cool, dry area.”

Does CBD Have THC?

does cbd have thc

One of the most common questions we hear is, Does CBD Have THC? The answer is simple, yet requires further explanation.

The cannabis plant has dozens of types of cannabinoids, which are chemical compounds. The most popular cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol or THC. THC is infamous for its psychoactive properties which create a euphoric high in the person smoking or ingesting the substance.

Another cannabinoid, cannabidiol (CBD), is gaining attention for its many wellness benefits. While THC and CBD are commonly put in the same group, they are separate entities that react differently in the body.

But does CBD have THC? If you have interest in trying CBD hemp oil, and are unsure if it contains THC, it is best to understand the difference between CBD, THC as well as the varieties of cannabis they originate from. 

Varieties of Cannabis

Hemp and marijuana are two different varieties of cannabis that vary in their genetic makeup. Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant which cultivators harvest for its seeds and stalks. Hemp can be used to make textiles, industrial materials, clothes, and food, among other things.

Marijuana, on the other hand, is a variety of the cannabis plant that has psychoactive properties. Hemp and marijuana are bred for different reasons and therefore require varying conditions for growing.

The biggest difference between hemp and marijuana is the varying levels of CBD and THC. Marijuana has higher levels of THC than hemp, and hemp has higher levels of CBD than marijuana. In order to be considered hemp, a cannabis plant must contain less than 0.3 percent THC.

What’s the Difference Between CBD and THC?

does cbd have thc

CBD and THC are types of cannabinoids found in cannabis. They are similar on a molecular level; however, they react differently with the cannabinoid receptors in our cells. THC imitates the neurotransmitter anandamide and activates the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptor that creates a high.

CBD prevents the action of THC at the CB1 receptor and, for that reason, CBD has been known to negate the psychoactive effects of THC. Thus, the biggest difference between these compounds is CBD does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC.

Since CBD does not create the effect of a high, it is practical for medical use. It is also important to note that THC is an illegal substance, while CBD is legal when properly sourced.

Properly Sourced CBD Oils

When researching CBD products, you will want to ensure it is properly sourced and contains less than .3% THC. A reputable CBD seller should have a certificate of analysis (COA) for their products which will show both CBD and THC levels. If you are searching for a CBD product completely free of THC (even only a small amount), we suggest looking for an isolate form instead of “whole plant” like this vape product.

It is also important to know where your CBD products are sourced from. Made by Hemp’s products are created from responsibly sourced industrial hemp from various parts of Europe. This industrial hemp contains helpful cannabinoids that can have a positive effect on the nervous system as well as other parts of the body. Our products have guaranteed levels of CBD and are below the legal amount of THC.

So, Does CBD Have THC?

To answer the question… Does CBD contain THC? No, CBD does not have THC as they are completely different compounds.

Though CBD does not contain THC, it is important to know a CBD product, such as tinctures, oils, edibles, etc., may contain some THC due to both compounds being present in the cannabis plant when the product is made.

How Does CBD Work?

CBD is known to regulate endocannabinoid receptors, which occur naturally in the body. These receptors are located in the brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems. Endocannabinoid receptors assist with control of appetite, pain, mood, inflammation, memory and more.

Does CBD Hemp Oil Show up on a drug test?

Since you asked the question about CBD having THC, it is likely your next question is… Will CBD Show Up on a Drug Test?

If not, here are the top CBD news headlines from 2017!

Still Have Questions? 

If you have more questions the legality or contents of products sold on Made By Hemp, read our blog or contact our customer service team. At Made by Hemp, we look to provide education about industrial hemp as well as offer the best hemp based products, so you can get healthy confidently and naturally.

How to Take Hemp Oil Orally

how to take hemp oil orally

How to Take Hemp Oil Orally

One of the most common ways to get CBD into your system is oral consumption. It is a familiar method that is quick and efficient. There are a few different ways on how to take hemp oil orally, such as tinctures, edibles, or capsules. Understanding how to use each is simple but pivotal to the product’s effectiveness.

What Are my Options?

Tincture

A tincture is a liquid supplement that is taken sublingually (under the tongue). Typically, tinctures have a dropper top that is used for administration. In addition to hemp oil, these drops often include a base oil such as grapeseed oil or coconut oil and flavoring. They are flavored to make the hemp taste slightly more palatable. However, some prefer the taste of hemp and there are natural varieties available.

To use a tincture: first, shake the bottle to mix the ingredients. Often times, the ingredients separate; shaking the product ensures a consistent serving. With the dropper top, fill the pipette with oil and then dispense the oil under the tongue. The amount of oil will depend on your specific serving size (see How Much Do I Take? below). Hold the serving under the tongue for 60-90 seconds. Swallow the remaining product, followed by your choice of liquid if desired. While this process is recommended 1-2 times daily, your frequency of use may vary.

Pure Extract

Pure hemp extracts are extracted right from the hemp plant and contain no additives. They have a much thicker consistency than tinctures and are dispensed out of an oral syringe. The color and consistency will vary depending on the variety you choose. This product is unflavored and may contain whole plant material, again, depending on the variety you choose.

To use a pure hemp extract, remove the cap from the end of the syringe. Dispense a rice-sized drop onto a spoon or directly into your mouth by pushing the end of the syringe. If you haven’t done so already, place the extract under your tongue. Hold it in your mouth for 60-90 seconds and then swallow the remaining product. Due to the hemp flavor, we recommend washing the product down with water or juice.

Edibles

Your option for edibles includes chocolates, chews, and lozenges. This variety of options allows many people to find something that will suit their taste. This type of oral supplement is particularly discreet in it looks just like candies or cough drops, so people won’t know that you are taking a dietary supplement. This allows you to take this supplement orally on the go or in the comfort of your own home.

Capsules

If you are already taking other supplements orally, adding another one might be a particularly easy way of adding it to your diet. These capsule supplements are taken the same way orally as any other capsule with water. These capsules come in different concentrations and are very easy to use when trying to find your perfect serving. When taking CBD hemp orally via capsule, you can be sure about exact servings due to the perfectly portioned oils and gel caps.

How Much Do I Take?

With hemp oil, there is not a one-size-fits-all serving size. What works for some may not work for others. The best practice is to start with the serving size on the package. If after a week you are not seeing the results you are looking for, increase the serving size for another week. Continue this method until your desired results are achieved.
