Organic is a labeling term for food or other agricultural products produced according to the USDA organic regulations. These standards require integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices by promoting resource cycling, ecological balance, and biodiversity conservation. So organic operations must maintain or enhance soil and water quality while conserving wetlands, woodlands, and wildlife. It also prohibits the use of synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, irradiation, and genetic engineering.
Producers must raise all organic crops and livestock in a system that emphasizes protecting natural resources; plant and animal health; preventative management of pests, diseases, and predators; and compliant use of allowed materials. In addition, all organic products must be protected from prohibited substances and methods from the ﬁeld to the point of ﬁnal sale, whether it is a raw agricultural commodity or a multi-ingredient, processed product.
USDA Certification provides you, the consumer, assurance of the organic product’s integrity.
Organic certification verifies that the farm or handling facility of USDA labeled products comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic regulations. One can not use the USDA organic seal on products or refer to them as certified organic if they do not meet or exceed these specific organic standards.
The following products can use the USDA organic seal:
- Processed or multi-ingredient products that have been certified organic and contain 95 to 100 percent organic content.
- Raw agricultural commodities that have been certified organic.
The following products CAN NOT use the USDA organic seal:
- Processed or multi-ingredient products that contain less than 95 percent organic content.
- Any product that has not been certified organic by an accredited certifying agent.
Products that contain at least 70 percent organic content may be labeled as “made with” up to three specified organic ingredients but not labeled with the USDA organic seal. A certifying agent must oversee these products.
If your product contains less than 70 percent organic content, any organic ingredients are specified on the list of ingredients.
CBD oil is a natural oil that is extracted from the flowers and leaves of the cannabis plant. It is used for a variety of purposes.
Cannabinoids are active compounds produced by all cannabis plants. They account for most of the benefits of cannabis. Cannabinoids found in plants are technically called phytocannabinoids, while cannabinoids produced by the human body are called endocannabinoids. Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which promotes homeostasis.
CBD’s effects are a result of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system. CBD impacts the ECS indirectly, most often through activation of outside receptors and interaction with enzymes.
Hemp seed oil is distinctly different from CBD oil. While CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant’s flowers, hemp seed oil is produced by pressing the plant’s seeds. Hemp seed oil is similar to other seed oils such as corn oil and sesame oil. Hemp seed oil has its own benefits, but it does not contain cannabinoids such as CBD.
Hemp is a plant, a variety of cannabis that is grown for food and fibers. CBD is a molecular compound found in the plant’s extracts. Brain Body Health CBD is extracted from a proprietary strain of hemp known as PCR hemp, or phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. This proprietary strain is far richer in CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes than the basic hemp plant used by most CBD producers.
There are no known incidences of illness caused by the consumption of CBD oil. Also, all Brain Body Health products undergo rigorous testing to guarantee they are free of any potential contaminants.
Hemp and marijuana are both types of cannabis. Marijuana contains a cannabinoid known as THC, which causes a high and is known as a drug. Hemp contains negligible amounts of THC and is unlikely to cause a high.
Many people use CBD to support the body’s natural systems. Cannabinoids are an integral part of the human body’s ability to regulate and balance a wide variety of physiological systems. CBD is also used by some for specific purposes such as supporting a good night’s rest or maintaining well-functioning joints.
No. All Brain Body Health products show no detectable THC on their lab reports.
Raw hemp extract may contain small traces of THC.
The term broad-spectrum refers to CBD oil products that contain a combination of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other beneficial compounds found in hemp. While many CBD oil products are made using CBD isolate, Brain Body Health broad spectrum oils maintain concentrations of the beneficial compounds that are found in the original hemp plant. Our broad spectrum CBD oil products contain no detectable THC, as shown on our lab reports.
Full spectrum CBD oil is very similar to broad spectrum CBD — the exception is that full spectrum oil usually retains the trace amounts of THC present in the hemp plant. Legally, though, this amount of THC must always be less than 0.3%.
Brain Body Health products are made with broad-spectrum oils that have had traces of THC removed. Our products are extremely unlikely to cause a high.
Some of the effects reported by CBD oil users include improved mood, restful sleep, increased attention and focus, and others. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
There is no record of anyone ever overdosing on CBD. CBD is completely non-toxic.
The benefits of broad-spectrum products are usually greater than the benefits provided by others, such as those containing just CBD isolate. This is due to what’s known as the entourage effect. The entourage effect occurs when compounds in the hemp plant, including cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids, work together to produce even greater effects than just CBD alone. All Brain Body Health products contain broad spectrum CBD oil. However, organic compounds such as CBD can produce different effects in different people. Your results may vary.
Terpenes are a class of volatile hydrocarbon compounds produced in the flower clusters of the cannabis plant. Terpenes are what give cannabis its distinct aromas and have been utilized by humans for millennia in aromatherapy. Terpenes are recognized as safe for human consumption by the Food and Drug Association and are used in a wide variety of food and cosmetic products.
A CBD tincture is a preparation made from CBD extract. It is used orally (swallowed) and can also be used in cooking or baking. Our tinctures do not contain alcohol, although many traditional tinctures do.
CBD is non-toxic. We have never heard of anyone overdosing on CBD. However, extremely large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness.
The amount of CBD in Brain Body Health products varies from product to product. Please refer to the product label for the exact concentrations of CBD in each product.
The ideal serving size of CBD for each person depends on a wide range of variables. It also depends on the product. Servings of 5 to 50 milligrams per day are commonly reported for health maintenance and minor issues.
Our edible products are best taken with food, although there are usually no issues when taken on an empty stomach. Taking the products with food may help to minimize any potential side effects.
CBD is not known to have any negative side effects. However, large servings of CBD may cause drowsiness. If your intention is to remain alert, this may be considered an unwanted side effect and therefore large servings should be avoided.
CBD can be taken multiple times each day, or at particular times of day, depending on the reason it is being used.
All Brain Body Health products go through rigorous testing by third-party labs to assure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids. This includes testing to be sure that our products are free of THC and any potential contaminants.
Yes. All Brain Body Health products go through a rigorous series of tests by third-party labs to ensure purity and accurate concentrations of cannabinoids. This includes testing to be sure that our products are free of THC and any potential contaminants.
No. Unlike marijuana and THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and is extremely unlikely to cause a high.
CBD itself does not have an expiration date. However, CBD oil products can degrade and should be used within a certain period of time. They should be stored in airtight containers either in the refrigerator or in a cool place away from direct sunlight. Please refer to the product expiration dates for more information.
We highly recommend either refrigerating CBD products or storing them in a cool place. Always keep CBD products in airtight containers and store them away from direct sunlight and heat, which can degrade certain compounds in CBD oil.
Under normal circumstances, our products are not expected to produce a positive result for THC consumption through testing conducted using industry-standard sophisticated testing methods. Brain Body Health can not, and does not represent or warrant as to the results that any individual may experience, and advises you to consider the risks of incorrect detection prior to use of this product.
Because of its ability to help support the body’s effort to maintain homeostasis, CBD is often used by those who don’t have any specific concerns.
Much more research needs to be done in this area. If you are taking prescription medications, consult with a qualified medical professional.
In some cases, such as when using a vaporizer or tincture, users often report almost immediate results. However, most of the effects of CBD are subtle and take some time to be detectable — usually half an hour or more. Personal results will vary.
All Brain Body Health products contain broad-spectrum CBD oil produced by a gentle extraction method. This retains the beneficial compounds produced by the cannabis plant. We do not use any harsh solvents in our extraction process.
The special strain of hemp used to produce Brain Body Health products is grown in the USA.
Yes. All Brain Body Health products are gluten-free.
The human endocannabinoid system, or ECS, is a system of neurotransmitters and cell membrane receptors. Neurotransmitters such as endocannabinoids are produced by the central nervous system and interact with cannabinoid receptors on cell membranes to adjust physiological processes at a cellular level.
