Extra Strength Ideal CBD
We create our Extra Strength Ideal CBD using industrial hemp from American farms. Not only is it sourced close to home, it includes a full spectrum of cannabinoids and other micronutrients.
Our family has been making healthy oils and supplements in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 30 years. As a leader in the natural foods industry, we stake our reputation on innovating and creating the quality products our customers have come to expect. And like all of our products, our Ideal CBD Hemp Oil meets the very highest standards of excellence.
Our oils are sourced from high-grade, industrial hemp grown by the most reliable, environmentally responsible and passionate farmers.
We use cutting-edge extraction methods (including supercritical CO2 extraction and food grade kosher alcohol micro-filtration) for the purest, highest quality oils.
Our full spectrum oils contain a full profile of nutrients found in cannabis—nutrients work better when they work together.
Our oils are third-party tested for purity and potency to ensure independent quality analysis of every batch.
Hemp and Marijuana come form the same plant family, but are completely different in function, cultivation and application. Marijuana generally has a high level of THC (a psychoactive compound that makes you feel “high”) and is used for medicinal or recreational purpose. Hemp contains a negligible amount of THC (but is high in CBD) and is used in dietary supplements, skin products, clothing and paper.
Just like oranges and lemons are both citrus, hemp and marijuana are both cannabis, but look different and have a different chemical makeup.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a compound that comes from the hemp plant. It is one of more than 85 unique compounds found in hemp, known as cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are known to promote health and keep people resilient to changes in their environment.
CBD does not make you “high.” CBD is non-psychoactive (it doesn’t make you feel euphoric) and is considered extremely safe. In fact, CBD can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC, the compound of marijuana that make you feel “high.”
That's a two part answer.
First, it strikes a balance.
The human body is self-regulating, so like a tightrope walker, it’s constantly shifting to keep balanced and healthy—a process called homeostasis. One way our bodies maintain homeostasis is via the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
The ECS is made up of receptors on cell membranes that regulate a variety of processes including eating, sleeping, relaxation and cognition. The ECS also assists in the body’s overall recovery and repair.
Secondly, cannabinoids are keys to our health. Our bodies naturally produce compounds called “endocannabinoids” (endo=inside) that bind to those receptors, like a key fitting into a lock. CBD Oil is a plant-based cannabinoid--or phytocannabinoid (phyto= plant)--that acts upon cell receptors in a similar way.
Whether formed in the body or ingested in plant-based substances like CBD Oil, cannabinoids are “keys” that can unlock your body’s natural ability to maintain health.
