WHAT IS HEMP / CBD OIL?
WHAT IS HEMP OIL?
Our CBD hemp oil is extracted from the flower only of industrial hemp plants. The plants used are specially bred to contain high concentrations of naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD).
Dr. Scott's Natural's contains :
We continuously test our hemp extracts at every step of the manufacturing process to ensure quality and consistency with no contaminants. We use certified cannabis and food testing labs to verify the consistency of our product.
Integrated into every part of the cultivation process, our team stands in the field side by side with our farmers. Hemp production is an art form and together we are mastering the art and keeping production here in the USA.
HEMP OIL EXTRACT IS IN A CLASS ALL ITS OWN
More than 400 phytonutrients exist in hemp plants. Our Super Critical Fluid Extraction technology allows us to extract all of these nutrients, without using any heat or harmful solvents. The result is a whole food with exceptional nutritional qualities. With Dr. Scott's Natural's you’re getting highly sought CBD, plus the 400+ other nutrients in a naturally synergistic, easy-to-use, easy-to-absorb form. It truly is a one-of-a-kind product.
1ST LEGAL HEMP FARM IN THE U.S.A.
We take a homegrown approach to farming with our clean, all natural growing process. 100% of our product is grown and processed right here in United States. We don’t use any pesticides, and our products do not contain GMOs. Our farmers cultivate a robust, sustainable crop that is grown outdoors on American soil. We are the first farmer to be granted a license to grow hemp in the United States since the passing of the 2014 Farm Bill. In partnership with our formulator and there Department of Agriculture, we are pioneering the hemp industry in the United States.
1ST IN RESEARCH
Dr. Scott's Naturals formulator and its partners have donated more money to hemp-related research than any other organization in the world. Having already donated tens of millions to universities around the world, we are dedicated to continually investing in research.
HEMP OIL IS NOT PSYCHOACTIVE
You CANNOT get ‘high’ or intoxicated by consuming CBD hemp oil or any whole, raw natural product from industrial hemp plants. Unlike medical marijuana, hemp does not contain the psychoactive properties of THC. Additionally, scientific research* has documented that CBD is actually anti-psychoactive.
WHAT ARE CANNABINOIDS?
So what are cannabinoids anyway?
Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids.
Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavors and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.
There are over 60 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis — the only place they are found. This is one of the many reasons hemp stands alone in the plant kingdom as a treasure chest of nutrition without equal.
WHAT IS CANNABINOID SYNERGY?
Each cannabinoid has its own individual properties, which is creating excitement in the scientific community. Besides terpenoids and cannabinoids, hemp contains many other vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.
While isolated cannabinoids have their own characteristic properties, the different compounds have synergistic effects when the whole symphony of phytonutrients are consumed together.
Synergy means that the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Another way of thinking of this is 1+1. You know that 1+1 = 2. When hemp phytonutrients are consumed together, as they naturally occur in the plant, the nutritional benefits multiply, and it’s as if 1+1 now equals 3, or 4 or more!
WHAT ARE SYNTHETIC CANNABINOIDS?
The unique health properties of hemp have been known to scientists for more than 50 years. Given that hemp is nutritional powerhouse, there have been attempts by pharmaceutical companies to produce synthetic versions of isolated cannabinoid molecules.
As is common with synthetic chemicals, when cannabindiol is produced synthetically, the desired properties are reduced significantly, while undesirable side-effects appear.
THE ENDO-CANNABINOID SYSTEM
Every major civilization in history has recognized hemp as #1 on its list of important plants. The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks and Romans all revered hemp as an incomparable source of food and medicine. Now modern science is validating what the ancients all knew — and uncovering exciting new discoveries about hemp.
We are hard-wired with a system of cannabinoid receptors throughout our brains and bodies. When these receptors are activated, they enable two-way communication between body systems; something previously thought to be impossible
THIS SYSTEM IS CALLED THE ENDO-CANNABINOID SYSTEM (ECS)
So what does it mean to literally have a cannabinoid system inside the body? It means that we were designed to regularly supply our ECS with the nutrients it was designed for, in support of vital communications between the control centers of the body and every other system.
However, due to the governmental regulation of hemp and cannabis over the last 80 years, most humans living today have gone their entire lives without feeding their bodies these raw materials.
Imagine a large orchestra, and the members being made to play their instruments while blind-folded. They can’t see the conductor and they can’t read the music. Sometimes they get it right, but most of the time it’s a mess. This is your body without the nutrients provided by hemp. Bringing the body back into harmony could be as simple as replacing this lost nutrition.
WHAT ARE BENEFITS OF CBD OIL?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most predominant cannabinoid in hemp, and has many beneficial properties.
In its patent (#6,630,507) titled CANNABINOIDS AS ANTIOXIDANTS AND NEUROPROTECTANTS, the U.S. federal government makes many impressive claims about CBD, stating that:
*“Cannabinoids are potent antioxidants… they easily penetrate tissues giving them the ability to enter the central nervous system and brain.”
*“Non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD are particularly advantageous as they are non-toxic… and exhibit unique antioxidant properties without the undesirable effects of THC.”
*“The antioxidant strength of CBD is significantly greater than that of either Vitamin C or Vitamin E.”
RESEARCH ON SAFETY
CBD hemp oil is safe for the whole family, and more scientific studies are validating this all the time. Among the most prominent health care professionals who support the use of non-psychoactive CBD is physician and researcher William Courtney, M.D. Some of his research is here.
