What is hemp extract?
Hemp extract is the essential oil produced from the leaves, buds, and stems of the hemp plant. It consists of phytocannabinoids (CBD), terpenes and flavonoids. Phytocannabinoids are phyto-compounds produced by the hemp plant. Cannabinoids work with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system to support homeostasis.*
Is your hemp organic?
All pesticides, mildewcides, and herbicides used on our plants are organic, when rarely used. Hemp is a fibrous plant that holds on to everything put on it, so we are very careful to avoid harsh chemicals on our plants
What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are a group of fatty compounds found in hemp but also produced by other plants and the human body. They are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant.
Hemp can produce more than 100 different phytocannabinoids naturally. Of the 100+ non-intoxicating phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. Others include Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabinol (CBN) and, more.
evo hemp extracts tap a unique assortment of hemp's phytocannabinoids, plus terpenes, flavonoids, and other valuable hemp compounds to help support the body.*
Cannabinoids interact directly or indirectly with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is present in all living beings except insects.
What is the Endocannabinoid System?
The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors within a mammal's body. Scientists discovered this system in the 1990s.
Phytocannabinoids work with the mammalian Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is a vast receptor system that helps support homeostasis and overall good health. * This receptor system exists throughout the entire body, including the immune system, the central nervous system, and within many organs. The ECS accepts our body’s self-produced endocannabinoids as well as the phytocannabinoids found in hemp.
The ECS is designed to support cells and healthy immune system function, in reaction to fluctuations in our external environment. * A human's ECS affects many regions of the body, including functions of the immune system, the central nervous system (including the brain), organs, connective tissue, and glands.
The ECS supports various biological tasks, including energy & balance, immune function, memory, metabolism, sleep, and the function of the autonomic nervous system. *
evo hemp products are whole-plant extracts that include a range of beneficial compounds found in hemp, including phytocannabinoids and other phytocompounds (such as terpenes and flavonoids) that work to support your body’s endocannabinoid system.
Supplementing with cannabinoids from plants (phytocannabinoids) can support our body’s endocannabinoids, and the ECS's major receptors, CB1 and CB2. This helps to maintain proper balance. *
What is the Entourage Effect?
The Entourage Effect is a phrase coined in 1998 by two Israeli scientists to describe their findings that taking a range of natural compounds found in cannabis is more beneficial than just taking a single molecule compound alone.
Charlotte's Web products are whole plant extracts that include a variety of phytochemicals. These beneficial compounds include a range of phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
What is Cannabidiol?
Cannabidiol or CBD for short, is non- intoxicating phytocannabinoid. Phytocannabinoids are chemical compounds found in hemp plants. There are over 100 different phytocannabinoids that can be found in hemp.
Research shows significant potential for phytocannabinoids to support general health & wellness. *
How should I store my evo hemp products?
Refrigerate after opening. (CBD Gummies and CBD Softgels exempted)
Will evo hemp CBD products cause me to fail a drug test?
Much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is inherently present in trace amounts in hemp plants. The legal limit of THC in hemp is no more than 0.3%.
Furthermore, the underlying science behind the conversion of certain cannabinoids, for example cannabidiol (CBD), when consumed, to other related cannabinoids, like THC, is not yet fully understood. Although the risk is low, individual biochemistry, the possibility of conversion of cannabinoids, and the possibility of trace, but legal, amounts of THC inherent in hemp products, we strongly suggest consulting your healthcare provider before consuming any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing.
