What is CBD?
CBD is an acronym that is short for “Cannabidiol”, which is a cannabinoid. It is found in high concentrations in the hemp plant, along with other cannabinoids like CBDa, CBG, CBC, CBN, and less than 0.3% THC.
These other cannabinoids are sometimes referred to as minor cannabinoids. Our proprietary Whole Plant extraction method allows for the preservation of more minor cannabinoids than most other CBD products on the market.
Why Full-Spectrum CBD Products?
Full-Spectrum CBD products preserve the entire range of cannabinoids and terpenes that are essential to “The Entourage Effect”. With CBD products the synergistic effect increases the efficacy of the treatment due to the effects on the endocannabinoid system.
Our Whole Plant Extraction method is what makes our Full-Spectrum CBD products so unique. Our process is the most natural extraction method that preserves large amounts of minor cannabinoids.
Whole Plant™ Extract vs. CO2 methods?
Our Whole Plant™ Extract is an all-natural extraction method that preserves the natural terpenes and full-spectrum of cannabinoids. We process strain-specific plants to create our strain-specific Whole Plant™ Extract. Each hemp plant has a different cannabinoid and terpene profile giving each strain its own unique characteristics and effects.
When processing using CO2 extraction, many of those minor cannabinoids and all the terpenes get stripped off during the extraction process. The terpenes and cannabinoids work synergistically to create the “entourage effect”, which is essential to reach your wellness goals!
What is a COA?
Lab Reports are most often referred to as “COA’s”, standing for Certificate of Analysis. A Certificate of Analysis is a document provided by the lab or company to confirm the product meets its quality specifications. The most common Certificate of Analysis is a potency test. This test will show and ensure that the product has the number of cannabinoids inside, as advertised. Most lab reports will read the amount of mg/ml. The way you find out your total product amount is by taking the mg/ml and multiplying it by the total volume of ml in the product.
Here at Whole Plant, we custom-tailored our COA’s to make it easy for everyone to understand. We’ve done density testing on all of our products, so we have a section on our COA that has the total mg per product! This cuts out the confusing math equations, so you can see our products are trusted and accurate right away! Check out our lab reports page to see our results!
