One of the most common questions we get is, “What’s the difference between your tinctures?”
It’s a great question because we have three different kinds of tinctures with a total of 7 different potencies.
First of all, all our tinctures are made with Co2 extracted oil. That’s important because using the subcritical (Liquid Co2) extraction method you get the cleanest extract without any residual solvents left over.
Now let’s talk about the difference between the Holistic Blend and the Signature Blend.
The Holistic Blend is the darker oil. This oil is the first extraction from the plant and is unwinterized. This means that it contains all the parts of the plant including the waxes, lipids chlorophyll etc.
It’s the rawest tincture that we have.
So DARKER IS BETTER? Yes, it is. Made of 100% UNREFINED full-spectrum CBD! 100% chemical and preservative FREE! NOT ALL Full-spectrum CBD is created equal! Did you know CBD is DARK when extracted from the hemp plant? This is the RAW, UNREFINED state. It takes a lot of refining to make the oil GOLDEN and PRETTY like most other companies on the market. Cannabinoids, nutrients, and terpenes are LOST at EVERY STAGE of the refining process. So, the darker the oil the better! DARK, Unrefined, full-spectrum CBD contains the MOST cannabinoids, the MOST terpenes, and the MOST plant nutrients over any GOLDEN REFINED oil.
So what’s the catch? Taste.
Some people don’t like the taste of this oil.
Winterized CBD oil (such as the oil we use in our Signature Blend) has the waxes, lipids, and chlorophyll removed from it.
You don’t lose CBD potency but you don’t have all the compounds of the plant left in your final product.
The added benefit is taste though.
Both oils work great and it just depends if you are a purest or not and how much the taste effects you.
The leaves our Entourage Blend.
The Entourage Blend gets its name from the Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect is the idea that getting the full spectrum of the cannabinoids of the plant is the most effective method for cannabis consumption. So while many people have heard of CBD and THC there are at least 113 cannabinoids! Our Entourage Blend takes the three main therapeutic ones CBD, CBG and THC and combines them to deliver the Entourage Effect.
We start with our Signature Blend extract oil and we augment it with CBG to create a 1:1 CBD to CBG ratio.
