    CBD Oil Buyers Guide: What you need to know.

    Here are 7 Questions You Need to Know the Answers to Before Purchasing CBD Hemp Oil.

    1. What is the Difference between Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate?

    Many companies use CBD Isolate which is much less expensive than Full Spectrum CBD. They extract the CBD out of the hemp plant leaving behind the highly beneficial Cannabinoids, terpenes, and lipids..... This is like getting all your fruits and vegetables from a concentrate or powder form. Full Spectrum CBD is similar to eating whole food as it leaves in all the vital nutrients and benefits. This is known as the Entourage effect. At Deep Relief CBD, We use Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, giving you all the amazing benefits of CBD Oil.

    2. Where Is the Hemp Sourced?

    Many companies import their hemp from Europe, other countries or states with no quality control or regulations. It may contain pesticides, illegal amounts of THC, toxic metals and other undesirable contaminants. At Deep Relief CBD all our hemp comes from Colorado where each and every hemp plant is govt tested, inspected and approved through strict quality control guidelines.

    3. What Carrier Oil is Being Used with the CBD?

    Many companies use fractionated coconut oil, palm oil, hemp seed oil or other sub-par carrier oils. These oils are much cheaper than MCT Oil and have a very poor absorption rate as they are broken up by the stomach and disposed of. At Deep Relief CBD we only use high-quality MCT Oil. MCT Oil passes through the digestive system and allows for a much higher absorption rate of the CBD.

    4. How Do You Know What is In Your CBD Oil?

    At Deep Relief CBD we have our CBD Oil Double Blind Tested through 2 different qualified labs. We have it tested at the source in Colorado as it is being extracted and then we have it tested at a different lab before it is bottled. This ensures that what we claim is in the bottle actually is in the bottle.

    5. Does it have a Money Back Guarantee?

    We offer a 30 Day Unconditional Money Back Guarantee which is pretty much unheard of in the industry!

    6. How do you know if the CBD Company is Credible?

    We post our address and phone number for everyone to see, we are available online through our website, on ebay and we are now featured on Amazon Prime. We have over 10,000 Likes on FB with a 5 star rating and tons of testimonials.!

    7. How Much Does It Cost?

    At Deep Relief you will get the highest quality Full Spectrum CBD at pretty much the best prices you can find. We are out changing peoples lives and want to make sure they can afford it. We can guarantee that if you compare apples to apples and use the above questions to evaluate any other CBD companies that you will find we have some of the best prices in the industry!

     
  2. Serving size for Humans and Pets, and how often should I take it?

    Starting dose for our DR 1500mg is 8-10 mg (4-5) drops per 100 lbs of body weight  twice a day morning and night.

    Starting dose for our DR 500mg 8-10mg (13-15) drops per 100 lbs of body weight twice a day morning and night.

    Pet formula 500mg dogs/cats 1-4 drops per 20 lbs. over 100 lbs use human dosage 

    Twice daily morning and night.

    We recommend experimenting to see what feels best to you. Some need 5 drops, some need over 50 drops per day to get relief Increase every 5 days as needed.

  3. What is the best method of use?

    For our dietary supplements, we recommend dropping the oil under your tongue for 1 to 5 minutes twice a day morning and night.  If you don’t like the flavor of the oil supplements, you can mix with something sweet like applesauce or honey to cut through the flavor.

    The longer you hold under the tung the more absorption you get.

    Also can be applied directly to the skin as a secondary method not to replace taking orally.

  4. Which of your CBD and hemp products should I get?
    As a company who sells various dietary and food supplements, we can’t suggest any of our products for the prevention, treatment or cure of any disease or ailment.
     
    When considering our different dietary hemp products, know that they all come in two strengths. DR 500 l has 500+mg of cannabinoids per fluid ounce, and our concentrated blends DR 1500 has 1,500+mg per fluid ounce.  We’ve found that sometimes less is more, but nevertheless, some people like to take very large serving sizes of our hemp extracts.
     
    THOSE WHO SUSPECT THEY MAY HAVE A DISEASE OR ARE SEEKING HELP FOR A DISEASE SHOULD CONSULT A QUALIFIED MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL.
  5. Where do you source your hemp and CBD from?

    We are using 100% Colorado-grown hemp in our dietary supplement manufacturing.

  6. What kind of testing/analysis is performed on your products?

    We have an industry leading quality control system, and we have third party laboratories analyze all of our hemp extracts and our final products for cannabinoid potency, heavy metals, bacterial and microbial life, mycotoxins (fungus), and pesticides.

  7. What type of extraction method do you use?

    We use 190 proof food grade ethanol/alcohol to extract our hemp, the most historically used method for cannabis/hemp extracts. It is a clean and cold extraction method that allows for optimal retention of terpenes and other sensitive compounds.

    Alcohol Extracts vs CO2 Extracts

    There are many differences between the extracts of carbon dioxide and alcohol involving polarity, bio-availability and ester formation. Carbon dioxide is a liquid gas and only extracts the non-polar chemicals of a plant. Alcohol is a solvent that is made due to plant fermentation and is a by product of plants themselves. It is a solvent made by the plants for the plants. Alcohol is also the only solvent that maintains the original chemical ratios contained in the plant. This is due to alcohol extracting both water soluble and oil soluble components.

    The use of carbon dioxide results in a very limited extraction of the plant.  Since the extracts of carbon dioxide are non-polar; carbon dioxide extracts are not water-soluble. This plays a vital role in bio-availability. Since our bodies are 70% water, oils must be digested by different acids and enzymes to become active. During this digestion process, the active ingredients of the oils are degraded.

    Since alcohol is both non-polar and polar, it can dissolve a much wider range of molecules that includes almost all of the plants medicinal oils, polysaccharides, carboxylic acids and other beneficial chemicals. In other words, alcohol dissolves both water and oil soluble chemicals found in the plant while carbon dioxide can only dissolve the oil soluble chemicals.  In terms of keeping the plant whole and together, alcohol is the only solvent for the job.

    Ester Formation

    Something else that happens with alcohol extraction is ester formation. Esters are formed when an organic acid combines with alcohol. When a carboxylic acid is esterified it changes into a more water soluble, bio-available form.

    In Conclusion

    Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble.  This method is far more advanced than any other patented method of extraction and purification and only involves using the plant's naturally contained chemicals. 

  8. What is CBD? What is CBD Oil?
    Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring constituent of industrial hemp/cannabis. Its formula is C21H30O2 and it has a molecular mass of 314.4636. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for various reasons.
     
    CBD oil is a cannabis oil (whether derived from marijuana or industrial hemp, as the word cannabis is the Latin genus name for both) that has significant amounts of cannabidiol (CBD) contained within it. Our CBD products and extracts are derived from industrial hemp, so they could be considered CBD-rich hemp oil, hemp derived CBD oil, CBD-rich cannabis oil, or plainly “hemp extracts” since they typically contain much more than just CBD. Again, cannabis doesn’t mean marijuana but is the genus name and general umbrella term which all forms of marijuana and hemp fall under. The form of cannabis we use for our CBD and hemp extracts is industrial hemp; we do not sell marijuana.
  9. What is the endocannabinoid system (ECS)?
    “The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, consisting of neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia
     
    There are two main types of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are generally found in the peripheral nervous system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (named after the Sanskrit term “Ananda,” which translates to “peace”).
     
    For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has been equipped with this ECS, a crucial system in the body, and it has been known about in the scientific and medical communities since the 1980’s. However, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools. 
  10. If a hemp extract is 40% cannabinoids, what’s the other 60%? What’s in your hemp extracts besides the naturally occurring cannabinoids?

    Our Colorado hemp extracts contain over 80 different phyto-cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD), CBC, CBG, CBN, etc.. In addition to the cannabinoids naturally present in our agricultural hemp extracts, there are also many other types of natural molecules and phytochemical compounds such as amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins (including B1, B2, B6, D), fatty acids (including omega 3 & 6), trace minerals (including iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium, potassium), beta-carotene, chlorophyll, flavonoids, ketones, nitrogenous compounds, alkanes, glycosides, pigments, water, and terpenes. The most common terpenes in our hemp extracts are Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Terpinolene, Linalool, alpha-Pinene, beta-Pinene, Nerolidol og Phytol, trans-alpha-Bergamotene, Limonene/ beta-Phellandrene (Co-elution), and alpha-Humulene.

  11. What’s the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?
    Scientifically, industrial Hemp and Marijuana are the same plants, with a genus and species name of Cannabis Sativa. They have a drastically different genetic profile though. Industrial Hemp is always a strain of Cannabis sativa, while marijuana can be Cannabis sativa, Cannabis indica, or Cannabis ruderalis. The major difference is how industrial hemp has been bred compared to a marijuana form of Cannabis sativa. Typically speaking, industrial hemp is very fibrous, with long strong stalks, and barely has any flowering buds, while a marijuana strain of Cannabis sativa will be smaller, bushier, and full of flowering buds. However, newer industrial hemp varieties in the USA are being bred to have more flowers and higher yields of cannabinoids and terpenes, such as our Colorado hemp we’re now using!
     
    99% of the time marijuana has a high amount of THC and only a very low amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, naturally has a very high amount of CBD in most instances and only a trace amount of THC. Fortunately, the cannabinoid profile of hemp is ideal for people looking for benefits from cannabis without the ‘high.’ Hemp is used for making herbal supplements, food, fiber, rope, paper, bricks, oil, natural plastic, and so much more, whereas marijuana is usually used just recreationally, spiritually, and medicinally. The term cannabis oil can refer to either a marijuana or hemp derived oil since marijuana and hemp are two different forms of cannabis.
     
    In the USA the legal definition of “industrial hemp,” per Section 7606 of the Agricultural Appropriations Act of 2014, is “INDUSTRIAL HEMP — The term ‘‘industrial hemp’’ means the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
  12. Are hemp derived cannabinoids such as CBD as good as CBD from marijuana?
    The short answer is yes. CBD is CBD, whether from marijuana or hemp. Most marijuana has a very low non-psychoactive cannabinoid profile (like CBD, CBC, CBG), so most of the time hemp would be much more preferable for anything besides THC. Marijuana is usually very high in THC (gives people the high) but usually very low in other non-psychoactive cannabinoids.
    It would only be a strain to strain comparison not Hemp VS Marijuana.
     
    Nowadays in the USA, many farmers are growing industrial hemp flowers that are just as beautiful, odor-producing, and terpene rich as the best marijuana strains, such as our partnered farmers in Colorado.
  13. What’s the percentage of cannabinoids and CBD in your product?

    Our raw extracts have varying percentages of cannabinoid and cannabidiol (CBD) content.  We use 500 mg of Full Spectrum CBD in DR 500 and 1500 mg of Full Spectrum CBD in our DR 1500.

  14. What is the safety of your hemp extracts? Are there negative side effects?

    Our oil is double lab tested for quality and safety.

    Please consult with your physician before using any dietary supplement including Hemp extract supplements.

  15. Is a standard hemp seed oil the same as a high-CBD hemp extract?

    Definitely not. Standard hemp oil, which can be found very cheaply at a grocery store, is a much different product than our full spectrum hemp extracts (not from seed). Standard hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a full plant extraction with many components not typically found in the seeds. Hemp seed oil is considered to be a great nutritive food, but it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other components that our extracts do have.

  16. Do I need to move to Colorado to get your Hemp Extracts and CBD? Where do you ship?

    No. Many people are under the impression that the only way to acquire hemp extracts and CBD for themselves or a loved one is to move to Colorado or another cannabis-friendly state. Many major news outlets are misinformed and are unfortunately spreading the idea that you can only get CBD oil in the states where medical marijuana has been legalized. This is simply not the case though. Because our extracts come from hemp instead of marijuana, we can and do ship nationwide, and no medical marijuana card is needed. There are some exceptions, like with South Dakota, where we can’t sell our products due to state legislation.

  17. Is your Hemp Extract Oil similar to Rick Simpson Hemp Oil?

    Not quite. Ours are from hemp and RSHO is usually using marijuana, a different form of cannabis than industrial hemp. Our industrial hemp extracts are more standardized and will usually have a much higher content of non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD than one produced through the Rick Simpson method. And oils produced through this method will usually have a much higher THC content, as it’s typically marijuana that is used for RSHO.†

    Generally speaking, most marijuana producers and sellers (especially on the black market) don’t test for contaminants (metals, pesticides, bacteria, etc.). Rick Simpson Hemp Oil is actually a method of extraction than it is a specific product. People use the Rick Simpson method with hundreds of different strains of marijuana, so the THC, CBD and other cannabinoid content of the final oil always vary greatly, depending on the cannabis the consumers are acquiring. Usually what’s used for Rick Simpson oil is a strain with an inferior CBD content (and high THC), because that’s what the vast amount of marijuana is nowadays.
