FAQs — EDEN Hemp Flower Extract

What is Organic EDEN Hemp Flower Extract?

EDEN Hemp Flower Extract is a broad-spectrum extract of cannabidiol (CBD and CBG) infused into organic cold-pressed hemp seed oil with vitamin E tocopherol from sunflower seed.

What is EDEN Hemp Flower Extract used for?

Eden Foods is not a health care provider or physician. The reputed benefits of hemp derivatives are widely publicized and published.

What does the statement "broad-spectrum" mean?

Broad-spectrum is a legally defined marketing term showing the presence of more than one of hemp's active components. In this case, CBD and CBG. 0% THC is accomplished by cryogenic isolation of various organic hemp compounds and preventing them from being reintroduced.

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a beneficial class of compounds found in the hemp plant, including cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabichromene (CBC). There are numerous others, and some were just recently discovered. CBD and CBG are the targeted cannabinoids that EDEN Hemp Flower Extract captures, while ensuring 0% THC in the three items.

What is the difference between hemp oil, CBD oil, and EDEN Hemp Flower Extract?

Hemp oil can be the oil from the hemp seed, or other parts of the plant; but is most commonly from the seeds. CBD oils on the market today may contain extracted active ingredients from hemp that are dissolved in an oil. That oil may be unrefined hemp seed oil, refined coconut oil, or any other edible oil. EDEN Hemp Flower Extract is a broad-spectrum hemp extract with 0% THC that is dissolved in organic, unrefined hemp seed oil.

Hemp Seed Oil has numerous industrial and culinary uses. It has an abundance of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including tocopherols, essential fatty acids (EFAs) omega-3 (linoleic), omega-6 (linolenic), and omega-9 (oleic acid that is a monounsaturated fatty acid, the same substance that comprises nearly 80% of olive oil). Hemp seed oil offers valuable nutrition, it contains little or no CBD or THC.

CBD Oil is extracted from the flowers, leaves, and stalks of hemp. CBD is cannabidiol. By law, CBD Oil may not contain more than 0.3% THC at which level it is not psychoactive. CBD works with the body's endocannabinoid system by activating its core receptors and encouraging cellular and overall homeostasis (balance and equilibrium).

EDEN Hemp Flower Extract is a cryogenic extract of CBD Oil obtained from the mature flowers of organic hemp plants. It is blended with organic cold-pressed Hemp Seed Oil with vitamin E tocopherol from sunflower seed to prevent oxidation of its fatty acids. EDEN Hemp Flower Extract contains 0% THC. It is not psychoactive. Hemp Seed Oil is used for EDEN Hemp Flower Extract rather than refined or synthetic MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil, which is chemically extracted from coconut or palm oil to make concentrated triglycerides or MCT.

How is organic EDEN Hemp Flower Extract made?

Organic hemp plants are Michigan family outdoor field grown. Hemp flowers are harvested from the plant. A patent-pending cryogenic extraction and crystallization of the cannabidiols (CBD and CBG) is conducted. They are then diluted in organic, non-GMO hemp seed oil. The unique cryogenic extraction of EDEN broad-spectrum CBD and CBG ensures purity, consistency, and complete removal of THC. Global Organic Alliance (GOA) and OCIA have certified the facilities, farms, processes, and products as organic.

What does "cryogenic" mean regarding the extraction process?

Cryogenic means extremely low temperatures. This makes the separation of the chemical components through fractional distillation more controllable. This is how EDEN Hemp Flower Extract is collected.

Simpler CBD extraction methods are usually used that rely on carbon dioxide and alcohol. Those methods are less precise and cannot achieve the purity of EDEN Hemp Flower Extract.

Does EDEN Hemp Flower Extract contain the carrier oil MCT?

No. The carrier oil in EDEN Hemp Flower Extract is pure, cold-pressed, organic, non-GMO hemp seed oil with vitamin E tocopherol from sunflower seed that helps prevent oxidation of the oil's fatty acids. MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil is a synthetic fat obtained from coconut or palm oil that uses a chemical process called fractionation to remove caprylic and capric acid from the oil's fats to produce triglycerides. Normally the body converts the fats we eat in food into triglycerides. By using organic hemp oil in EDEN Hemp Flower Extract, Eden Foods avoids the use of MCT or other refined, chemically processed low-grade oil.
