There are several things to look for in CBD oil to see if it’s at the highest standards. The top three things to consider when choosing the best CBD oil products are: 1. What it contains 2. If it has been tested (and the results) 3. How it was extracted.
We strongly favor full spectrum products that include terpenes and a wide variety of cannabinoids, as naturally produced by hemp. When we talk about full spectrum we mean that we extract from the whole plant: CBD and other cannabinoids (including very small amounts of THC) and terpenes. In fact, we don't offer any isolate products. Why not?
The Straight Hemp secret sauce
While terpenes are considered the flavor and scent compounds of plants, they deliver so much more as they also produce amazing benefits of their own.
Terpenes interact with many of the same body parts as cannabinoids, but in different ways. While they may show little or no effect on their own, they synergize and amplify the effects of other terpenes and cannabinoids.
Straight Hemp is exclusively a hemp company.
Hemp and marijuana are different. While both plants are members of the same plant family (Cannabis sativa), they possess different chemical profiles and have distinct uses.
While both produce cannabinoids and terpenes, the relative quantities of each are different. Hemp-based products have far less tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)—the compound that gives recreational marijuana users a "high”—than a marijuana-based product.
