Phytocannabinoid oil is a product that’s derived from cannabis. It’s a type of cannabinoid, which are the chemicals naturally found in marijuana plants. Even though it comes from marijuana plants, it doesn’t create a “high” effect or any form of intoxication — that’s caused by another cannabinoid, known as THC.
Hemp oil is a natural botanical extract and devotees swear by its health benefits.
Hemp oil is derived from cannabis plants that have high levels of cannabidiol while having low levels of THC. At Hemp & Co, our hemp oils always have less than 0.3% THC. These extracts can then be used in paste form, or mixed with other oils such as hemp seed oil, to lower the viscosity of the extract.
A: For the best shelf life please refrigerate your hemp oil if possible. Otherwise storing in a cool dark area will assure there is no loss in potency. Don’t allow to sit in direct sunlight. If properly stored Hemp oil has around a 1 year shelf life!
A: The hemp plant material is dried and milled into a powdered form. This allows for higher surface area which in turn results in an efficient extraction in shorter time. The extraction is carried out either in supercritical CO2 or ethanol. The solvent allows for preferential extraction of canabinoids, waxes, terpernes and some of the impurities while discouraging the exchange of impurities such as plant carbohydrates and other impurities.
The liquid extract or slurry containing plant material is processed through a custom designed filtration process in which almost all of the undissolved solids are retained while solid-free clean extract is able to permeate through the filter membrane. The solvent from clean hemp extract is recovered using distillation. This converts liquid extract into an oil form. This oil is further treated to preferentially remove waxes. It is then processed through a unique chromatography media which removes THC. The final oil has total phytocannabinoids in 75-85% range with total terpenes between 1 to 4%.
A: Hemp & Co.™ believes in a cultivation approach that is compliant with organic farming practices as defined by the standards captured in the Organic Food Production Act, USDA organic regulations, and the National Organic Program. Our manufactor farms practice an organic cultivation or handling system plan that intends to meet the requirements below:
A description exists of practices and procedures to be performed and maintained;
A list exists of each substance to be used as a production or handling input, indicating itscomposition, source, and where it will be used;
A description exists of the monitoring practices and procedures to be performed and maintained,including the frequency with which they will be performed, to verify that the plan is effectivelyimplemented;
A description exists of the record-keeping system implemented to comply with the requirements;
A description exists of the management practices and physical barriers established to preventcommingling of organic and non-organic products on a split operation and to prevent contact of organicproduction and handling operations and products with prohibited substances.
Hemp & Co™ does not possess a certification to demonstrate that these organic farming practices have been reviewed and approved by a certification agency but expects to have one by 2018. This declaration intends to inform the parties concerned that the practices leading to an organic-certification in future are already in place and therefore, result in an equivalent product that could be expected from a certified-organic farm.
The hemp oil in our product contains minuscule amounts (parts per billion) of THC that COULD show up in a drug screen. We cannot guarantee that you will or will not pass a drug screen due to the amount of variables. Our products contain less than .3% THC(.054% to be exact). Drug screens vary and some can be more sensitive than others.
