how to pick a hemp strain?
By Daniel V
Hemp contains different essential oils, called Terpenes, that are responsible for the various flavors as well as effects.
These terpenes are found everywhere in nature, but when we consume them alongside cannabinoids, we can really take advantage of them.
This is known as the Entourage Effect.
Terpenes determine effects.
Pick your terpenes.
Feel the difference.
What is a carrier oil?
Hemp is encapsulated in a carrier oil in order to increase its bio-availability, to make it easy to cook with, and also to provide accurate dosage.
MCT Oil is scientifically the most bio-available but Hemp seed oil is a good option if you have a coconut allergy. MCT oil is short for fractionated coconut oil, and it’s basically refined for its healthy fats.
MCT oil is actually used as a supplement by itself in the keto diet.
What is the best extraction method?
The two main methods used in extracting hemp are Ethanol (alcohol) and CO2.
CO2, while much more expensive to run, is a cleaner and more precise way to isolate cannabinoids and terpenes due to the technology associated.
