ABOUT HEMP

Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa L family of plants. It is highly sustainable, is harvested for commercial use, and is a popular worldwide alternative to wasteful raw materials.

Hemp is also an important source for legal cannabinoids, and if you live anywhere in the U.S., you can now add CBD to your daily regimen.

Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants, but there are key differences. The hemp plant contains no more than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effect. Trace levels of THC in hemp means you can benefit from CBD without the intoxicating marijuana “high”.

Hemp, as well as marijuana, is deeply in our American revolutionary history. Hemp was widely grown by early American colonists to supply the British navy with canvas and fiber to outfit their ships with sails, rope, and more. They also paid taxes with it, and our Founding Fathers grew hemp. In fact, the first official flag was made with hemp cloth after we fought for and won our independence from England.

Cultivation of non-psychoactive hemp became outlawed in America because of its relationship to psychoactive marijuana because they both are of the Cannabis genus. Only now in the 21st century are hemp and its major cannabinoid, CBD, once again being fully utilized.

ABOUT CBD

CBD hemp oil is a natural botanical concentrate that is derived from the stalk and seed of hemp plants and that is high in the cannabinoid compound CBD, or cannabidiol. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant so far, and CBD, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is among the the plant’s most common cannabinoids. Both of these cannabinoids provide beneficial effects. However, unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and therefore doesn’t cause a high.

HOW CBD PRODUCTS ARE MADE

Dixie Botanicals® CBD products are crafted using non-GMO hemp oil. Pure CBD hemp oil is extracted from cannabis varieties that are naturally abundant in CBD and low in THC.

A specialized extraction process is used to yield highly concentrated CBD oil that also contains other nutritious material including:

  • Omega-3 fatty acids
  • Terpenes
  • Vitamins
  • Chlorophyll
  • Amino acids
  • Beneficial phytocannabinoids like:
    • Cannabichromene (CBC)
    • Cannabigerol (CBG)
    • Cannabinol (CBN)

This oil can then be formulated into products like tinctures, liquids, and salves.

CBD hemp oil can also be further refined into a 99 percent pure CBD isolate. You can use this powdered CBD in a number of ways, like for dabbing or creating custom edibles. Dixie Botanicals® also uses CBD isolate to formulate some of our products, making them completely THC free.
