12 Jul Why buy CBD from Naturecan?
With numerous studies citing CBD as a natural remedy for anxiety, inflammation and insomnia, the most important question now facing customers is: How do I choose the right CBD brand?
At Naturecan, we pride ourselves on being as close to nature as we can. This means that all of our products are sustainably sourced and designed to offer a natural, safe and effective way to support your health. Before we explore what makes Naturecan’s oil different, let’s take a quick look at the core ingredient: CBD.
CBD (or cannabidiol) is a non-intoxicating compound found in relative abundance in the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa). It is the main active ingredient in hemp-based products, including oils, capsules, edibles, balms and vape juice.
When consumed, CBD influences the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The endocannabinoid system is a complex cell-signalling network found throughout the body that regulates several vital functions, include sleep, mood, pain, appetite and memory, and ensures that ‘homeostasis’ or a balanced state is maintained.
Why choose Naturecan?
Naturecan offers an extensive and exclusive range of quality CBD products and supplements. With websites live in over 30 countries worldwide, we use our global reach to deliver the potential benefits of CBD to a growing customer base.
All of Naturecan’s products are created using industry-leading technology and undergo rigorous testing practices with third parties in order to ensure product quality, customer safety and supply chain transparency.
Our CBD oil is a broad-spectrum distillate with non-detectable levels of THC (0.01%). It is derived exclusively from certified organic US-grown hemp plants. We never use isolates or any man-made synthetic material – only ever natural, plant-based CBD.
Our Extraction Process
Once our hemp plants have been tested, qualified for use and harvested, they undergo three key extraction processes:
1. CO2 Extraction
Pressurized carbon dioxide is passed through each plant in order to extract the desired CBD compounds and other phytochemicals. This creates a crude oil that is clean, high quality, and safe to consume.
We use an advanced chromatographic purification system developed by RotaChrom to separate the desired compounds from impurities and to remove as much THC as possible.
The concentrate is further refined by distillation. This process allows the oil to retain minor cannabinoids and other hemp phytochemicals (which can enhance its effectiveness through the entourage effect) while removing any compounds, such as lipids, waxes, flavonoids and chlorophyll, which may negatively affect the taste, consistency and purity of the end product.
The final step is the addition of organic MCT oil (extracted from coconut) as our carrier oil. We use MCT oil because it improves the bioavailability of CBD (the amount of CBD that enters the bloodstream) and has a mild taste.
Once distilled, the oil contains 90-95% CBD and at least 5% other, high quality minor cannabinoids, such as CBG, CBC, and CBDA. This rich and potent mix of phytochemicals and cannabinoids, with non-detectable levels of THC, helps to create oil of the highest purity and quality.
Our Testing Process
All our raw materials are tested and qualified for use before entering the extraction process, and all our end products then undergo rigorous independent testing to have their safety and potency guaranteed.
This process consists of at least six stages and includes tests for CBD potency, pesticides, heavy metals, microbial contamination and residual solvents.
Naturecan is also committed to full transparency, which is why we make all of our Certificates of Analysis available for you to view on respective product pages.
