What is Cannabidiol (CBD)
CBD is one of at least 85 cannabinoids found in marijuana plants and hemp plants. It is a major constituent of the marijuana plant second to THC and represents up to 40% of its extracts. Industrial Hemp plants yield up to 30% CBD (no difference between marijuana & hemp CBD).
CBD is non-psychoactive and is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than THC; including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, spasms, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, nausea, convulsion, and inflammation as well as inhibiting cancer cell growth. CBD has displayed sedative effects in animal tests. Other research indicates that CBD increases alertness. CBD has been shown to reduce growth of aggressive human breast cancer cells in vitro and to reduce their invasiveness? (Freebase Dictionary)
Other important Cannabinoids are CBDa, CBG, CBC, CBN. Terpenes are usually combined to create specific feelings and sensations, and then added to the Hemp Oil product. Important Terpenes are myrcene, linalool, bisabolol, b-caryophyllene, and humulene.
RAW, Decarboxylated, Filtered Decarboxylated Hemp Oils
Raw Hemp Oil
Minimum Processing | RAW Plant Compounds | Lowest Cost | Mild Medical Conditions like Anxiety
RAW Hemp Oil is made from pressing the plants to squeeze out the hemp oil which will contain all the plant compounds; hemp oil, CBD, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids. These are processed the least at room temperatures and hence are the lowest cost hemp oil products. The color of this oil will usually be dark green to black and have a thick consistency. CBD pressed directly from the hemp plant’s stalk and packaged in its raw form.
Decarboxylated Hemp Oil
Heated CO2 Processing | Higher CBD Content with Plant Compounds | Moderate Medical Conditions
Decarboxylated hemp oil has increased CBD content. The process of decarboxylation increases the amount of CBD in the oil by converting CBDa into CBD. It is also a more efficient process getting more of the CBD out of the hemp material, hence the increased potency and effectiveness of the CBD. It also offers a faster reaction time for the CBD oil once it’s in your body.
The decarboxylated form of CBD oil will typically be dark green to black with a thick consistency at room temperature. This oil is commonly bought by people who are making their own CBD edibles and have moderate anxiety problems as well as insomnia, arthritis and migraines. Decarboxylated CBD in its unfiltered oil state, retains the raw hemp’s nutritional value while maximizing CBD content.
Decarboxylated & Filtered Hemp Oil
Decarboxylated Hemp Oil Filtered | Highest Potency & Effectiveness | Serious Medical Conditions
Pure products are made by filtering decarboxylated hemp oil. The filtered or “gold” varieties will typically be decarboxylated as well as being filtered to remove the smaller plant constituents such as chlorophyll, lipids and other non-CBD plant parts. Extracted using supercritical CO2 is the purest way to produce CBD hemp oil with the highest CBD content per serving of all full-spectrum hemp oil products.
Cutting Agents found in Vape CBD eLiquids and Nicotine eJuices
Propylene Glycol (PG)
Propylene glycol is generally thinner than PEG, and doesn’t emulsify with oils quite as effectively as PEG, but is still the most popular cutting agent. PG won’t create huge vape clouds, but has a reputation for creating clean, smooth draws.
Vegetable Glycerin (VG)
Vegetable glycerin is another very popular cutting agent in oil cartridges, especially in retail e-liquids containing nicotine. VG does not mix particularly well with other oil-based materials. For this reason, you will often see VG combined with one or more other cutting agents or additives. Vape oils laced with VG tend to create large, thick “smoke” cloud.
Coconut Oil and MCT Oil
Coconut oil and its close relative MCT oil are relatively newcomers to the growing list of cutting agents. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are triglycerides whose fatty acids have an aliphatic tail of 6–12 carbon atoms. The fatty acids found in MCTs are called medium-chain fatty acids. These oils tend to have a hard time getting wicked up into the atomizer, so check your vaporizers compatibility with MCT.
Is Hemp CBD legal in the United States?
On February 6, 2004 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals issued a unanimous decision in favor of the HIA in which Judge Betty Fletcher wrote, "They (DEA) cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana-i.e. non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled, and it has not followed procedures required to schedule a substance. The DEA's definition of "THC" contravenes the unambiguously expressed intent of Congress in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and cannot be upheld". On September 28, 2004 the HIA claimed victory after DEA declined to appeal to the Supreme Court of the United States the ruling from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals protecting the sale of hemp-containing foods. Industrial hemp remains legal for import and sale in the U.S., but U.S. farmers still are not permitted to grow it.
Are Hemp CBD supplements approved for use by the FDA?
Dietary Supplements can be beneficial to your health * — but taking supplements can also involve health risks. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not have the authority to review dietary supplement products for safety and effectiveness before they are marketed. Before making decisions about whether to take a supplement, talk to your healthcare provider. They can help you achieve a balance between the foods and nutrients you personally need.
* The statements made throughout the Hemp Oil Factory website regarding the benefits of Hemp CBD supplements are true to the best of our knowledge, but they have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Will I pass a drug screen test using Hemp CBD products?
The hemp oil in our product contains CBD which is a LEGAL cannabinoid from hemp. It contains minuscule amounts (parts per billion) of THC that COULD show up in a drug screen. The Hemp Oil Factory 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, but the general rule is that it is equal to or less than 1%. Drug screens vary and some can be more sensitive than others. If you have to take a drug test, it is best to not use our product.
What is third party certification?
Third-party certification means that an independent organization has reviewed the manufacturing process of a product and has independently determined that the final product complies with specific standards for safety, quality or performance. This review typically includes comprehensive formulation/material reviews, testing and facility inspections. Most certified products bear the certifier’s mark on their packaging to help consumers and other buyers make educated purchasing decisions.
All supplements and nutritional products distributed by the Hemp Oil Factory are laboratory tested in multiple facilities by third parties to ensure purity, safety, and consistency – we require they retain the test results to prove it. Here at the Hemp Oil Factory, we strive to offer only the most eclectic, trusted, and effective hemp supplements. Upon request, we can readily provide our clients with certificates of analysis (COAs) for all the products we distribute.
What is Hemp Oil Extract?
Hemp Oil is Not Psychoactive!
CBD hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and seeds of industrial hemp plants. The plants used are specially bred to contain high concentrations of naturally occurring cannabidiol (CBD). 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 Hemp CBD is actually anti-psychoactive.
More than 400 phytonutrients exist in hemp plants. The best process uses Super Critical Fluid Extraction technology that allows the laboratory to extract all of these nutrients, without using any heat or harmful solvents. The result is a whole food with exceptional nutritional qualities. This process produces the highly sought Hemp CBD, plus the 400+ other nutrients in a naturally synergistic, easy-to-use, easy-to-absorb form.
What are cannabinoids?
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 or The Entourage Effect, 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.
What is the endocannabinoid 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 ENDOCANNABINOID 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.
Why No One Has Ever Died From Hemp: There is one place in the body where there are no cannabinoid receptors – the brain stem. The brain stem is the control center for the heart and breathing. This means that it is not possible for cannabinoids to overwhelm those systems and cause them to shut down. This is why, in more than 4,000 years, no one has ever died from consuming hemp.
What is the difference between CO2 extracted oil, Hemp oil, CBD oil and tinctures?
CO2 Extracted Hemp CBD Oil; Highest Potency & broad medical benefits
Here is where producing cannabis oil turns into an art form. Oil produced through CO2 extraction is the purest oil you can get at the moment. More of the terpenes and cannabinoids remain intact, giving users a full-flavor, full-potency oil that can be smoked, vaporized or consumed orally. CO2 is the preferred extraction method because it is considered a green solvent, unlike petroleum derived solvents like butane.
Why It’s Used
CO2 oil is used for just about everything. Because extraction artists can dial in on the desired component of the cannabis plant, they are able to make oils with high THC levels, or none at all. Medical patients interested in the pain relieving components of cannabis can purchase CO2 oil with none of the psychoactive effects but all of the medical benefits they are interested in. Oil produced through carbon dioxide extraction is less viscous than BHO, while it can be smoked, it is usually vaporized.
Hemp Oil; Rich in Omega-3 & Omega-6 Fatty Acids
Obtained by pressing hemp seeds and extracting the oil under extreme pressure. Cold pressed hempseed oil is green in color and has a nutty flavor. Refined hemp oil is colorless, tasteless and void of any vitamins or antioxidants. Hemp oil doesn’t contain any THC. Seeds are cleaned thoroughly before the oil is pressed, however trace amounts of THC can usually be found in hemp oil.
Why It’s Used
Hemp oil is used in a number of beauty and body care products. The nutritional value of unrefined cold-pressed hemp oil is enormous. It contains a 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acids, essential for our cellular health.
Cannabidiol Oil (CBD Oil); Non-THC Medical Benefits Compound
CBD oil is another blanket term, characterizing any oil where cannabidiol is the primary active ingredient. Cannabidiol oils don’t contain THC (<0.1%) in any meaningful amount, they are made with high CBD marijuana strains to ensure optimal yield. The highest grades of CBD use the CO2 process; the purest and best way to produce any extract. CO2 CBD oil will contain the fewest impurities and can provide a more regulated dose.
There is Mounting Antidotal Evidence as to Why It’s Used
Early indications from initial clinical research support the findings of individuals who are using Cannabidiol products; Cannabidiol doesn’t have any psychoactive effects, it may however have profound healing effects and medical benefits. CBD is believed to be a powerful anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer and anti-tumor cannabinoid. It is also believed to be a potent pain reliever that doesn’t just mask the pain, it appears to help relieve the chronic inflammation that prevents the body from healing.
Having no psychoactive effects makes Hemp CBD a perfect option for many medical users and children. Using a Hemp CBD oil allows users to get an exact dose and ingest it orally, making it very similar to other liposomal health supplements. It’s helping end the stigma attached to medical marijuana by giving people a more clinical experience, without the laundry list of side effects.
Oil Tinctures; high potency & broad medical benefits
Tinctures are a liquid concentrate, unlike some of the other cannabis oils discussed tinctures aren’t viscous at all. A dose consists of a few drops placed under the tongue, the tincture is then absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Tinctures are produced through alcohol extraction, allowing decarboxylated cannabis to sit and steep in the alcohol extracts the cannabinoids into the liquid.
Why It’s Used
Cannabis tinctures are used for a variety of ailments and praised for their ease of use. A few drops from a plain old eye-dropped under the tongue delivers the full benefit of the cannabis tincture. Medical marijuana patients often use cannabis tinctures to aid in the treatment of chemotherapy side effects: nausea, pain, anxiety, depression and loss of appetite. The range of tincture benefits is massive, users report success with back pain, stress, seizures, tremors and arthritis, to name a few. Tinctures come in all sorts of different flavors and blends, targeting specific ailments with a range of herbal essential oils.
- Hemp CBD oil (highest potency) processed using CO2 extraction is the purest oil you can get and can be processed to contain no psychoactive THC. More of the terpenes and cannabinoids remain intact, giving users a full-flavor, full-potency oil that can be smoked, vaporized or consumed orally.
- Tinctures (high potency) are produced through alcohol extraction and the resulting liquid concentrate is used by placing drops under the tongue, the tincture is then absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
- Hemp oil (No CBD) is cold-pressed and is void of any vitamins or antioxidants, however, the nutritional value of unrefined cold-pressed hemp oil is enormous. It contains a 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acids, essential for our cellular health.
- CBD oils and Tinctures are used for many health related purposes

How is CBD Good for Me?
What Are Benefits of CBD Oil?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most predominant cannabinoid in hemp, and is considered to have many possible beneficial properties. CBD hemp oil is safe for the whole family, and more scientific studies are validating this all the time.
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.”
