With a team of experts, we’ve found the best in the business to sustainably farm and extract Plant Love Naturals’ hemp extract. Our small farm partner proudly practices USDA Certified Organic Hemp farming. Our farm is located in our home state of Colorado where we have hot summers and cold winters, ideal conditions for growing hemp. They continue to advance their practices through researching and performing studies that help companies and consumers better understand the far-reaching potential of the hemp plant. Using Certified Organic farming practices, testing for potency & purity, heavy metals and residual pesticides/herbicides are all key practices to ensuring you have the cleanest and most therapeutically beneficial hemp extract available.
Our Extractor utilizes a state-of-the-art, food-grade, Subcritical CO2 extraction process to produce the highest quality hemp extract oil with up to 80% concentration with no solvents or impurities. Subcritical extraction utilizes temperatures that protect the biomass, all-the-while preserving hemp extract, terpenes, and minor cannabinoids of the plant. The finished product is more potent and well-rounded, not to mention CO2 is better for the environment. Our manufacturing controls are designed to meet the requirements of ISO 9001, cGMP, and USDA organic processing. We can provide complete traceability and transparency throughout the process from the biomass to the bottle.
At Plant Love Naturals we believe in using every part of the plant to heal, that’s why we chose Full-Spectrum Hemp. Full-Spectrum goes beyond simply providing hemp extract, it contains all phytochemicals naturally found in the plant (hemp extract, other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids). The cannabinoids in these oils include less than .3% THC. The full spectrum of the active compounds extracted from hemp work together to amplify the health benefits. This phenomenon is referred to as the entourage effect.
Plant Love Naturals’ hemp extract oil is USDA Certified Organic from Full-Spectrum Hemp. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant; however, much higher amounts of CBD are found in the Hemp variety of the plant. CBD does not get you “high”, unlike Marijuana, as only a trace amount of THC is found in Full-Spectrum CBD oil. In recent years, much research has been done on the effectives of CBD. There have been so many positive findings; CBD has become a hot item that is now added to skin care, pet products and supplements worldwide.
So, what exactly is CBD and how does it benefit our body? CBD works directly with our natural endocannabinoid system (ECS) to regulate homeostasis within the body; greatly enhancing this complex system that brings order to chaos. As we age, our nerve pathways get hard-wired, and we become rigid in how we think, how we act, and how we feel. CBD can help mitigate these variables, creating a balance within us.
What is the difference between isolate CBD oil and Full-Spectrum CBD Oil? CBD isolate is exactly how it sounds, its been isolated during extraction and made into a crystalline solid or powder. When an isolate is produced, all other cannabinoids have been removed. At Plant Love, we prefer a Full-Spectrum hemp oil because multiple cannabinoids ( CBD, CBD, CBN, CBG), terpenes, fatty-acids and minerals are preserved during distillation making it a whole-plant oil. This process is often referred to as the “Entourage Effect”, when all compounds of the whole hemp plant are present, it is believed to maximize the benefits of CBD.
