Many people are understandably flummoxed by a very active campaign to convince the public that CBD is different depending on whether it’s derived from marijuana or hemp. Hemp and marijuana are both Cannabis. Hemp is Cannabis sativa, and marijuana is either Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica. Hemp is simply the common and legal term for cannabis that contains less than .3% THC, and marijuana is the common and legal term for cannabis that contains .3% and more THC.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the same plant compound, regardless of whether it’s found in a low-THC or high-THC cannabis plant.
HoneyColony’s Superior CBD oil does not use a carrier. The hemp oil is a 40% concentrate cleaned of extracellular debris. When consumed orally, via digestion, cannabinoids are subject to 85-95% first pass degradation. That means that only 5-15% of the hemp oil enters systemic circulation. Sublingual application is the superior means of delivering hemp oil Most products in the market simply add their rich hemp oil to coconut oil, often calling it a tincture (it’s not a tincture.) The problem in that case is that the hemp, which is an oil, is now swimming in a pool of oil, and the hemp oil simply isn’t able to reach the oil-friendly receptors and achieve significant bio-availability. It’s oil competing with oil (hemp oil is a very potent oil, so there’s a tiny bit of it) and it cannot compete with the volume of coconut oil.
Instead, Superior CBD Hemp Oil is water soluble, and is the only naturally extracted water soluble hemp oil on the market. Superior has very small particles that are readily absorbed, and further facilitate permeation into the bloodstream with the use of naturally-occurring saponins. Research shows Superior’s delivery system to be 99 percent bio-available when taken properly — allowed to sit under the tongue for approximately 90 seconds before swallowing.
Superior is carried in a botanical glycerite (naturally preserved botanicals in water and non-GMO vegetable glycerin). Superior is a fully formulated product, based upon both science and traditional use. The botanicals in this formula are valuable in and of themselves, and, energetically speaking, necessary to offer a balanced formula.
