The origin of hemp oil is an area that many people are interested in. It’s also an area where there has been a lot of misinformation spread around the internet. That’s why we’re going to clear up some misconceptions about the origins of hemp oil and provide you with some helpful information!
Where Is Hemp Grown?
Hemp oil can be derived from any variety of cannabis plants (Hemp). These varieties belong to either the species Cannabis sativa or Cannabis indica, both members of the Cannabaceae family. Most of the hemp oil available on the market comes from a strain of Cannabis sativa known as Industrial Hemp.
This is mainly due to its resistance to pests and ability to be grown in more climates than other cannabis strains, including both hot and cold regions. The Synchronicity Hemp Oil is derived from the Cannabis sativa strain and developed in Europe. This allows for some of the best quality hemp oil on the market today!
The plant can grow up to 18 feet high when it’s cultivated outdoors. It has been used for over 12 thousand years throughout history because of its excellent benefits. Even today, most CBD products are made with industrial Hemp that was imported into America in 1937 .
Production of Hemp oil
Hemp plants produce an abundance of seeds that contain nutrients like phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, vitamin E & B complex group of vitamins such as niacinamide riboflavin, thiamine & folic acid.
Hemp oil is produced from the seeds of hemp plants through pressing or crushing. Once the source has been pushed until it’s cold-pressed, there are different methods used to extract its oil. One way is by using ethanol alcohol as a solvent on low heat, which separates plant waxes and lipids, leaving behind crude CBD crystals, which can be purified further via the winterization method (the fats are frozen, filtered off, then heated under a vacuum) making cannabis-derived cannabidiol shatter easier to handle for consumers.
This process creates an amber-colored sticky substance that contains both cannabinoids found in marijuana, such as THC but without psychoactive effects unless taken at higher doses than recommended amounts due to the presence of THC-A, which is non-psychoactive.
Hemp oil can also be made using the C02 extraction process, where carbon dioxide is passed through the plant material under high pressure and low temperatures to isolate, protect, and maintain the purity of CBD extract. This method produces a pure hemp extract free from solvent residue, but it’s expensive due to the equipment used & required by this method.
