Bluebird Botanicals Hemp Complete: CBD + CBDA
Our Hemp Complete blend is a special formulation of various hemp extracts with an extra serving of terpenes. It contains 50% decarboxylated CBD and 50% non-decarboxylated (CBDA – the raw version of the molecule directly from the plant). To this, we add a steam distilled extract of terpenes – the molecules that give the smell to many of the plants we love and help contribute to the entourage effect. With both forms of cannabinoids plus the steam distilled hemp, this blend is the most comprehensive hemp product that we know of.
1. Full-spectrum hemp CBD extract (250+ mg cannabinoids per fluid ounce: 125 raw + 125 heated)
2. Steam distilled hemp extract (hemp terpenes, flavonoids, aldehydes, ketones)
3. Organic extra virgin olive oil
Full-Spectrum CBD Extract – CBD + CBDA
Full-spectrum extract of agricultural hemp contains naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, aldehydes, ketones, vitamins, trace minerals, omega fatty acids, protein, and more. Additionally, the hemp extract in our Hemp Classic blend contains both raw (CBDA) and heated cannabinoids (CBD). CBDA, or cannabidiolic acid, is the non-decarboxylated/raw form of CBD. CBDA transforms into CBD when carbon dioxide and hydrogen are removed. This can occur naturally as exposure to heat and light causes the plant to age, or it can occur by applying heat directly to the cannabinoids.
Steam Distilled Hemp Extract
Our steam (water) distilled CBD hemp oil contains at least 26 different aromatic terpenes plus various aldehydes and ketones. Steam distillation is an extraction technique that uses heat in the form of steam to break down plant matter and extract nutrients. Although this method tends to be less precise for extracting cannabinoids from hemp, it is very effective at extracting terpenes, aldehydes, and ketones. Terpenes, in particular, play a significant role in the way cannabis interacts with the body. The “entourage effect” is a common term used to describe the way the cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids in cannabis all work together to modulate how CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Our organic extra virgin olive oil is an excellent, nutritious carrier oil for our hemp extract. CBD is lipid-soluble, which means it is more easily absorbed into the bloodstream when consumed with other fats. The concentration of healthy fats in olive oil and its pleasant taste make it a perfect carrier oil for our CBD hemp.
