Holistic Hemp’s CBD tincture contains 5% CBD + CBDA. It is made from full spectrum organic CBD hemp oil and hemp seed oil. CBDA is an acid found in the cannabis plant before it is cut, dried and heated to form CBD. Just like CBD, it has an effect on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) of the body which keeps various bodily functions in balance.
Holistic Hemp Scotland’s hands-on approach stands out in the CBD industry. It follows labour-intensive methods, such as handpicking a crop when it’s ready for harvest and drying it in an open-air environment. The company does whatever it feels is necessary to ensure that all the original compounds found in the hemp plant remain pure and potent. It wants consumers to experience the best possible quality and to be able to consume CBD products without being worried about their safety.
The source of Holistic Hemp Scotland’s hemp is small farms where organic, bio-dynamic growing methods are followed. The farmers don’t use artificial fertilisers or pesticides. The hemp is harvested by hand and dried naturally.
The CBD is extracted in CO2 extraction machines, using low heat and pressure. This allows for preservation of all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. A full spectrum CBD extract is created where all the compounds work in synergy to provide the most value.
Safe and legal
The Cannabis Sativa L plant is the source of the CBD (cannabidiol) used in the tincture. Holistic Hemp Scotland’s CBD oil contains 0.2% THC and is therefore legal to use in the UK. It will not get you ‘high’ as it is the THC in the plant that has this effect. The tincture is certified by independent laboratory testing.
Holistic Hemp Scotland is a member of the UK Cannabis Trade Association. This association makes sure that consumers only get high-quality, safe products. It monitors the quality of the hemp and the extraction process to ensure this.
How to use
The product comes in a 10ml glass bottle containing 500mg of CBD. Simply unscrew the top and use the handy dropper applicator to dispense the oil. The recommended dosage is to place 10 to 20 drops under the tongue one to three times a day. As the CBD is absorbed into the blood vessels under the tongue (sublingually), do not swallow immediately or you will lose out on the amount of CBD entering your bloodstream. Do not exceed this daily recommended dosage.
When first using CBD oil, it is better to start off by using a small amount and increase slowly until you find the strength and dosage that works best for you.
Store your CBD and CBDA Oil in a cool, dry place away from excessive heat, light, or humidity to preserve its quality.
