What is CBD?
Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is a naturally occurring cannabinoid compound found in Cannabis, an annual herbaceous flowering plant. CBD oil is derived from an organic substance formed in the plant’s secretions. Both marijuana and hemp are forms of cannabis. However, cannabis does not mean marijuana. Cannabis is the genus name and general umbrella term, under which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall. Until recently, THC was the most well-known and studied cannabinoid due to its abundance in marijuana. However, CBD is the second most prevalent cannabinoid in marijuana and the top non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp. CBD has been gaining popularity in the scientific community and media.
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause any feeling of “high,” which contributes to its legalization across the United States.
Brushy Bee CBD products are derived from hemp (not marijuana) and can also be referred to as CBD hemp oil, hemp-derived CBD oil, or plainly “hemp extracts,” since they typically contain more than just CBD.
Our ethanol-based extraction method uses advanced technology to preserve all beneficial hemp-derived cannabinoids and terpenes while allowing elimination of unwanted compounds. All hemp is finely filtered and carbon-scrubbed to ensure undesired plant material is removed, producing the highest quality full-spectrum CBD. This extraction method ensures that our products contain the compounds necessary to produce the “entourage effect” which contributes directly to the efficacy of our CBD oil.
Our products are third-party tested to ensure the highest quality to our customers at the most efficient prices. Our hemp undergoes third-party lab testing for purity and CBD content. In addition to testing for potency, we also screen for mold, mycotoxin, heavy metals and residual solvents
