Use of high CBD tinctures first became popular in treating children with a severe form of epilepsy known as Dravet Syndrome. Children and pets use much lower doses of hemp extract than adults. Consult your pediatrician or veterinarian before giving hemp CBD products to a child or pet.
How is the CBD oil extracted from the plant?
There are many techniques for extracting phytocannabinoids from hemp plants. Each method has its advantages that depend on its intended use. We buy from farmers who use an ethanol-based extraction method. This method efficiently extracts the plant cannabinoids as well as the plant terpenes, vitamins, chlorophyll, and fatty acids. Most all of the ethanol solvent evaporates in the extraction process. The extract is then cooled to remove the waxy lipids and heated to decarboxylate the cannabinoids or convert the acid CBDa to the more therapeutic form CBD.
