This is a great question and the answer begins in our hemp itself. Our unique plant genetics naturally contain 15-18% CBD and < 0.3% THC. Once our organic hemp has been harvested, we employ a proprietary extraction and purification process which removes all the unwanted materials that are non-medicinal in nature. This includes waxes, chlorophyll, and pigments. It also allows us to completely and safely remove the < 0.3% THC.
Because our process is so selective, the result is a very enriched, 70-85% CBD that is virtually free of solvents and heavy metals. What’s left is a highly beneficial chemical compound that is ideal for anyone who wants the therapeutic benefits of CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC without the psychoactive effects of THC. The complete chemical environment of the hemp oil is preserved and is safe for everyone from senior citizens to first responders.
We recommend starting with a lower serving and gradually increasing it until you achieve the desired results. For serious athletes looking for post-workout recovery, men and women suffering from different types of chronic pain, and those suffering from severe stress and anxiety, we recommend starting with the 25mg CBD capsules once or twice a day. If you are seeking to increase your mental clarity, shake off a bit stress, or improve your sleeping patterns, we suggest starting with the 10mg CBD capsules. If you start with the 10mg CBD capsules and are not achieving the desired results, consider the 25mg CBD capsules or take a few drops of our CBD oil as a supplement.
Cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and CBC are fat soluble, meaning they break down and are stored in fat rather than water. Therefore cannabinoids are most effective when consumed with fat because it increases the rate of absorption. GENESIS LIFE selected MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil or coconut oil as our carrier. With coconut oil having higher fat content than other oils, it gives the cannabinoids the traction they need to move through the body and interact with the endocannabinoid system faster.
A combination of our hemp plant matter, the extraction and purification process, along with the addition of peppermint and MCT oils left us with a product that ranges from a slightly pinkish to a soft amber hue. Each small batch varies ever so slightly, but we’re a fan of the color ourselves.
Sorry, cat people! CBD cat treats aren’t currently part of our plan, however you can add our Zero-THC CBD oil to their regular food if you like. We recommend that you check with your Vet prior to introducing CBD to felines.
CBD products are still relatively new to the mainstream, and research in this area is limited. Since every mother is different, we strongly recommend consulting with a doctor before adding CBD to your routine while you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
CBD Oil products should always be stored properly to help maintain their freshness and improve their shelf life. An opened CBD oil product will typically maintain its effectiveness for about 6 months. To store your GENESIS LIFE CBD oil properly, we advise storing them in a dark cool place.
Effective dosage will vary from person to person. It is important to stick to the dosage guidelines outlined by GENESIS LIFE. CBD has no known severe side effects, but mild side effects could include nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, dry mouth, and diarrhea. If you experience any side effects, we advise decreasing the amount of CBD you’re taking in a single serving. If you experience ongoing side effects, please discontinue use and consult your physician.
Put simply, Microemulsions make it easier for your body to metabolize ingested substances. Oil-in-water microemulsion is expected to increase the solubility by dissolving compounds with low water solubility into an oil phase. They can also enhance oral bioavailability by reducing the droplet size (< 100 nm), and hence increase the rate of absorption due to surfactant-induced permeability changes.
We recommend speaking with your physician before mixing CBD with your medications.
