What is CBD?

 

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring compound found in both the hemp and marijuana plants. When absorbed into the body, it interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which regulates bodily functions and how we think, feel and react. The efficacy of CBD in treating a wide range of ailments has long been acknowledged by individuals and complementary healthcare practitioners who value it for treating pain, anxiety, inflammation and sleep disorders.

Due to prior federal restrictions on research, much is still being learned about the vast therapeutic benefits of CBD, but the latest advances are promising. In 2018, the first CBD-based drug was approved by the FDA for the treatment of epilepsy, and CBD research is ongoing at major educational institutions and pharmaceutical companies across the U.S. While CBD is frequently used as an alternative to prescription and over-the-counter pain relievers, early studies even show that it may be effective in the treatment of opioid addiction and substance abuse.

The Benefits of CBD

 

As awareness of the efficacy of CBD grows, an increasing number of adults have found it useful in treating a broad range of symptoms.

The most common is chronic pain. While harmful and costly prescription pain relievers have until now been the only option, many sufferers have turned to CBD as a highly effective alternative without the harmful and often debilitating effects of pharmaceutical drugs.

And because CBD is non-psychoactive, it can be taken without concern for the “high” associated with marijuana and THC.

Relief

 

While the full therapeutic benefits of CBD are just beginning to be understood, its effect on the endocannabinoid system in the body suggests it helps as a mood stabilizer and can be used for adults suffering from a broad range of concerns, including:

  • anxiety
  • addiction
  • diabetes
  • fibromyalgia
  • inflammation
  • insomnia
  • nausea
  • pain
  • PTSD
  • schizophrenia

 

Fortunately for our furry friends, the benefits extend to the animal kingdom. CBD has been seen to be effective in treating anxiety and pain and inflammation in animals.

Frequently asked questions

 

Hemp Extract

Hemp Extract

What is hemp extract? Does it contain THC?

What is hemp extract? Does it contain THC?

 

Hemp extract is a dietary supplement and an excellent source of nutrients that can be safely consumed as part of a daily diet. It shouldn’t be confused with “cannabis oil,” which usually refers to oil that contains a high percentage of THC.

Hemp extract is rich in natural cannabinoids and is not psychoactive – meaning that it doesn’t cause a “high.”

Our extract is derived from organic, U.S.-grown, industrial-grade hemp, which is used for a range of purposes and categorized as having less than .3% THC.

How does Sniff & Barkens produce its hemp extract?

How does Sniff & Barkens produce its hemp extract?

 

The process starts with growing ultra-premium, USDA organic hemp on a family-owned farm in Colorado.

The hemp is hand-harvested and delivered to a nearby facility, where experts extract and distill active ingredients in a process known as “supercritical CO2 extraction.” (See below for more on that term.)

Our team then combines the extracted hemp oil with other ingredients, like coconut oil and Lipoderm, to create our oils, capsules and creams.

Who does the extraction for your product?

Who does the extraction for your product?

 

One partner does all of the extractions for our products. Sniff & Barkens will NEVER source our oil from another producer because we can’t guarantee the quality.

Where is your hemp grown and does it matter?

Where is your hemp grown and does it matter?

 

Where hemp is grown is just as important as how it’s grown. Our hemp is grown in Colorado on an organic farm, free from pesticides and soil toxins.

By contrast, a great deal of hemp used in other CBD products comes from Asia, and is grown in ground poisoned with heavy metals.

At Sniff & Barkens, we will ALWAYS use domestic, organically grown hemp.

What is hemp “extract” anyway?

What is hemp “extract” anyway?

 

Hemp extract is the oil derived from a high-resin Cannabis sativa L. plant, which contains less than .3% THC. To get the oil, we use a process known as “supercritical CO2 extraction.”

Supercritical CO2 – a form of carbon dioxide – is used for many extracts. When this liquid CO2 is heated with increased pressure, it carries the properties of both a liquid and a gas.

This helps it permeate the hemp and extract the plant’s oil. We prefer this method because it’s currently the only solvent-free method of extraction available, and it produces a pure, clean product.

Sniff & Barkens hemp oil is derived from high quality Cannabis sativa L. plants that contain less than 0.3% THC.

How do I know what strength oil to take?

 

There are a wide variety of factors that can influence what strength oil will work best for you. We suggest that you purchase the 600 mg bottle and then use our graduated droppers to determine what strength best suits your needs. As the middle strength option, it’s easy to adjust the dosage by taking a little more or a little less, depending on your response.

How should I store my hemp oil?

My oil has changed color. Is it still okay to use?

 

Since we don’t use any preservatives, it’s completely normal for our hemp oil to change color. This does not impact the efficacy of the oil.

How should I store my hemp oil?

 

For maximum longevity, store your Rocwell oil in a cool dark place. (But don’t worry: Even in direct sunlight over a two-year period, it will only degrade about 5 percent.)
