All About CBD
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is one of the major active ingredients in cannabis. CBD is derived directly from hemp, a cousin of the marijuana plant. Unlike its more famous counterpart THC, CBD by itself does not cause a "high." CBD is most commonly used to address anxiety, insomnia, and chronic pain.
What is full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD contains all the cannabinoids that are naturally occurring in the plant. It also contains plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins, all naturally occurring in the original hemp source. All of these compounds work together to maximize the potential health benefits through what is known as the entourage effect.
What is the entourage effect?
The entourage effect occurs when CBD is ingested along with other natural compounds from the hemp plant. The theory is that when CBD and the naturally existing compounds from the plant (plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and proteins) are taken together, the health benefits are increased.
What is broad spectrum CBD?
Broad spectrum CBD is essentially full spectrum CBD that has been further processed to remove trace amounts of THC. Like full spectrum CBD, broad spectrum CBD also contains plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and proteins, and therefore displays the entourage effect to maximize potential health benefits.
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is created by removing all other molecules except CBD from the naturally harvested full spectrum CBD. The result is 99% pure CBD and 0.0% THC.
How do I use CBD elixirs?
Pink Mule Growers elixirs are made for mixing, whether that's as an addition to your favorite cocktail or as a new ingredient in a salad dressing. Check out our YouTube channel for recipes and ideas to make CBD a part of your everyday life.
Do you use pesticides or other harmful chemicals?
No non-organic pesticides or harmful chemicals are used in the growing process. We use regenerative farming practices in an ongoing attempt to build the soils back to optimal health after years of being farmed with traditional commodity agricultural practices. Fertrell, an organic fertilizer company based in Lancaster, has been an integral partner in helping us get the ground ready for farming.
Do you use third-party testing?
Yes, all Pink Mule Growers products are third-party tested to ensure quality and consistency. We believe people have the right to total transparency from a health and wellness company, so we provide easy access to all batch results on our website that can be accessed by scanning the QR code on each of our products.
