Whole Flower Hemp
There are at least 113 cannabinoids in the living hemp plant, each with its own unique chemical structure and function. The way in which these cannabinoids interact with and amplify one another is called the entourage effect. To put it simply, the more varied the cannabinoid content, the better a product tends to work.
That’s why all of our products feature a broad range of cannabinoids that includes both CBDA and CBD, among others.
The flavor and aroma of hemp is shaped by its terpenes, chemical molecules with medicinal properties of their own. Limonene, for example, is the terpene that gives lemons their bright, zesty scent, and is also responsible for the citrusy nose of certain strains of hemp. Limonene is shown to have antioxidant, antidepressant, and pain relieving properties.
Flavonoids, like terpenes, also contribute the the medicinal properties of hemp, and are largely responsible for the vibrant colors found on the buds and leaves. Quercetin is a flavonoid found in kale as well as cannabis, with potent anti-inflammatory, tumor-reducing, and anti-anxiety effects.
VITAMINS & MINERALS
