Understanding Full Spectrum Hemp CBD

Know Thy Source 

As the wave of herbal legalization continues to spread across North America, CBD products have flooded the shelves of grocery stores, dispensaries, and even coffee shops. For new consumers who want to sample CBD products for the first time, it can be tricky to navigate the selection and understand labels. Consumers may wonder:

·     Is CBD legal? Sometimes, as it depends on which state and county you live and the type of CBD oil used – which is what we’re here to discuss!

·     Is CBD the same as marijuana?Yes and NO. CBD is a naturally occurring compound in both cannabis sativa and hemp. While hemp does come from the cannabis sativa plant, it’s not cultivated for its flowers, which contain little to no THC (unlike cannabis). Historically, hemp plants have been grown for their fiber, yet today, medical researchers understand more than ever about the medicinal uses of Hemp CBD.

·     Is CBD good for me?Yes! With the lift on prohibition, medical researchers are finally studying the long-observed positive effects of CBD on mind and body. At Tulip, a holistic beauty brand inspired by nature, our products are born from the heritage of Northern California’s Emerald Triangle. By combining her knowledge of medicinal herbs with the healing potency of Hemp CBD, Tulip’s founder, Victoria England, has released a dynamic new line of wellness products. In developing her skincare serums and tinctures, Victoria has been committed to securing the best quality full spectrum CBD oil* from a licensed master extractor in the state of Nevada. Full spectrum CBD oil is derived from cannabis sativa and actually contains cannabidiol (CBD), the cannabinoid that works to reduce inflammation and anxiety. The CBD oil in Tulip’s products is full spectrum, which is fundamentally different from the CBD isolate found in most ingestible CBD products on the market.

By combining her knowledge of medicinal herbs with the healing potency of Hemp CBD, Tulip’s founder, Victoria England, has released a dynamic new line of wellness products. In developing her skincare serums and tinctures, Victoria has been committed to securing the best quality full spectrum CBD oil* from a licensed master extractor in the state of Nevada.

The CBD oil in Tulip’s products is full spectrum, which is fundamentally different from the CBD isolate found in most ingestible CBD products on the market.

The CBD oil in our Tulip skincare product and tinctures is sourced from premium whole cannabis sativa plants (with low THC content) by using CO2 extraction, a costly but clean and solvent-less process. The end result is a premium CBD oil containing high level of cannabinoids and a possessing a strong medicinal effect. In a very different process, hemp seed oil (often simply labeled as hemp oil) is made from pressing plant seeds, resulting in a nutritious, though not specifically medicinal, ingestible oil. Hemp seed oil has been used for decades in variety of health food products including granola, milk, and butter. While hemp seed oil has high levels of protein, it’s problematic to rebrand such products as containing “CBD” when their ingredients have not changed. Unfortunately, such labels are misleading for consumers.

On the other hand, full spectrum CBD oil is derived from whole plant extraction and results in an oil that is rich with flavonoids, fatty acids, and terpenes. These essential compounds work together in a process known as "the entourage effect.” By interacting synergistically, the terpenes, fatty acids, and cannabinoids work together, magnifying their potential therapeutic benefit. In short, the entourage effect becomes exponential when all the plant’s compounds work together with the body’s own endocannabinoid system. Because every human has endocannabinoid receptors throughout their body and mind, CBD works with receptors to elevate the ability of various bio functions such as stress response and cell regeneration.

For the effective relief of anxiety and stress, we recommend taking Tulip’s Wellness Tincture 1-3 times daily for optimal results. Each serving is 1ml or 20 drops of liquid that contains 10 mg of Hemp CBD. For individuals seeking to alleviate more severe ailments for pain, better results may occur with 3-6 servings daily. Each individual’s needs and dosage will vary. 

We are happy to see more and more Americans gaining access to healing products like Tulip’s tinctures and our line of Active Hemp skincare. But as these products gain traction, we are committed to providing transparent and comprehensive education around our ingredients and process.
