A break down of Hemp CBD Products

Healing Harbors’ Daily Defense CBD Oils helps you stay ahead of issues that might otherwise slow you down or compromise wellness, by supporting a healthy endocannabinoid system. Since every body is different, we offer our customers the choice of either a Full Plant or THC Free hemp extract (available in a variety of strengths) to give you plenty of options when deciding what’s right for your body and lifestyle. Each of our Daily Defense CBD Oils are also derived from organic New England hemp to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your wellness journey. 

In order to immerse yourself in high-quality CBD self care, it’s best to start simple — by choosing which type of hemp extract is right for you. Our CBD products range from  — Full Plant to THC Free, and both offer their own unique features. Let’s explore, shall we? 

What’s The Difference Between “Hemp” and “Marijuana”?

First, let’s take a quick look at the plant we use to make all of our oils. The hemp plant is a truly beautiful one, with tall, graceful stems, a lovely flower, and the well-known characteristic leaf. What you might not know is that hemp is also the same plant as cannabis (also known as marijuana, weed, etc.). Yep, there is zero scientific difference between “marijuana” and “hemp”. 

Hemp is what the Federal Government defines as “cannabis (Cannabis sativa L.) and derivatives of cannabis with extremely low concentrations of the psychoactive compound delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (no more than 0.3 percent THC on a dry weight basis.)” The amount of THC is so low that there is no potential for compliant hemp products to cause intoxication. So, no matter which hemp oil extract you choose, rest assured that you will never require a medical designation, need to be of a certain age, or run the risk of getting “high” when you use any of Healing Harbors’ CBD products. Although our hemp is low in THC, our plants are high in CBD and rich with all of the other goodness of the hemp plant — and they’re grown with love and care in MOFGA certified organic Maine soil. 

After harvest, we use a gentle, safe method of extraction using food-grade ethanol that keeps our oil as close to what Mother Nature intended as possible. This method is commonly used in extracting nutrients from other plants, like Vitamin A from carrots and essential oils from flowers. Our method leaves no residue and provides the clean oil that we use in our Full Plant products. For our THC Free oils, our hemp plants undergo additional processing to extract all the compounds and other substances from the cannabis plant, including THC. The process leaves behind pure Cannabidiol (CBD) in crystal form, commonly known as CBD isolate.

Is The Entourage Effect For You?

Now that we know the basics of both types of hemp extracts, let’s look at how they are different. 

Our Full Plant Daily Defense Oils contain the full bounty of the hemp plant. We keep all of the active cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids in the extract, intact. And as a result, this high CBD, low THC oil has the virtue of the “entourage effect” — where each compound in the plant arrives with its own unique effects and benefits, and the compound’s behavior may change in the presence of other compounds. While CBD alone is thought to be quite effective, the entourage effect can enhance its benefits, like a chorus behind a great singer. This hemp extract is the closest to the original plant, with a fresh, grassy smell and taste that comes straight from the farm. We then infuse this rich hemp extract into organic MCT Coconut oil to offer it in 3 strengths: 300mg CBD/oz, 600mg CBD/oz and 1200mg  CBD/oz.

Our THC Free Daily Defense Oils contain only pure CBD isolate infused into organic MCT Coconut Oil. If you want to explore the benefits of CBD while avoiding THC all together, this is the option for you!. Our THC Free Daily Defense Oils also don’t have any of the grassy taste or odor associated with the hemp plant, as CBD isolate does not have a flavor or scent. This CBD oil is also the best option for people who might have negative responses to any of the 400+ compounds found in the hemp plant, as they are removed, leaving only CBD behind. With this form of hemp extract, you can understand how your body responds to CBD alone, without any question about which cannabinoid, terpene or flavonoid is responsible for providing you relief. Our THC Free oils come in 3 strengths: 100mg CBD/oz, 500mg CBD/oz, and 1000mg CBD/oz.
