      Why only full spectrum hemp and no isolates?

      Why only full spectrum hemp and no isolates?

      We strongly favor full spectrum products that include terpenes and a wide variety of cannabinoids, as naturally produced by hemp.

CBD and THC are the power couple of cannabis therapeutics. Both compounds have remarkable medicinal attributes, and they work better in combination than as stand-alones. CBD can magnify the im...

We clearly notice the difference, and we’re sure you will too. Another option is to use Supercritical CO2 extraction which takes place at high temperatures and significantly higher pressur...
