About Whole Plant CBD:THC Cannabis Extracts
The Ultimate Whole Plant Cannabis Extract FAQ:
Floracy is a superior treatment option for nearly all medical issues that can benefit from cannabis. Floracy Cannabis Extracts are produced with an organic ethanol extraction from cannabis, not hemp
Hemp actually produces pretty low concentrations of CBD; it takes a lot of plant matter to produce a little concentrated CBD; but hemp is an industrial crop, so it is typically treated with dangerous amounts and types of pesticides, and since the plant is (what is known as) a bio-accumulator, these pesticides wind up especially concentrated in hemp extracts. Also, Finally, hemp lacks the complexity of therapeutic plant compounds that exist in cannabis, and isolated CBD is a drug, not an herb. If you are buying CBD products from any retail outlet other than a cannabis dispensary, chances are you are getting isolated CBD.
CO2 cannabis extracts are not without merits, but the process creates a less complete/complex product, with effects that are a little more drug-like, and less plant-like in their effects on the body. In CO2 extraction, the molecular bonds are broken, compounds are selectively extracted, and terpenes are typically added back in in far greater quantities than those that naturally occur.
We love terpenes, as they naturally occur in cannabis flowers, and all other plants, for that matter. They are the reason for those intoxicating aromas which provide so much joy, relief, and refreshment to life! However, when they are concentrated/extracted from plants, many of them turn into powerful solvents themselves, capable of dissolving paint and plastic, or your penetrating cell walls, where they can cause harm to your mitochondria. The quantities added to most CO2 oils may be dangerous; there is not yet much publicized science about these risks, so we advocate the “better safe than sorry” approach to selecting cannabis products.
Ethanol is a superior solvent because
· It is safe for human consumption, and commonly taken as the base for herbal tinctures
· The processing method is safer than CO2, butane, propane
· It extracts the broadest array of therapeutic plant compounds
