Real Scientific Hemp Oil™, or RSHO™, is HempMeds®’s pure non-GMO hemp oil, unmodified and sourced straight from the hemp plant. RSHO™ is extracted from hemp cultivated free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides in the foothills of Northern Europe. An excellent source of cannabidiol (CBD) without the psychoactive effects of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), RSHO™ is sold as a dietary supplement.
RSHO BLUE LABEL:
Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ Blue Label hemp oil has been put through an additional decarboxylation step, heating the oil slightly to change the molecular structure of the oil’s cannabinoids, transforming the plant’s CBDa to CBD. RSHO Blue Label oil is an excellent source of CBD, without sacrificing the chlorophyll and many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids present in our unfiltered oil. Real Scientific Hemp Oil Blue Label is our mid-priced product, maximizing CBD content while retaining the hemp plant’s natural composition.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL?
There are many benefits to taking a daily serving of CBD from hemp oil products, but the most exciting among them is that a CBD oil supplement helps augment the body’s naturally occurring endocannabinoids, helping the body’s ability to promote homeostasis within its systems.
Cannabinoids are a class of active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. There are over 100 presently discovered cannabinoids, which are largely responsible for the effects cannabis has on the body. Common cannabinoids include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabigerol (CBG). Cannabinoids work together with the body’s endocannabinoid system to regulate the body’s natural functions – including mood, sleep, appetite, and immune response – to help create a balance in our systems.
However, a hemp oil supplement like RSHO oil offers more than just cannabinoids like CBD. Hemp oil also provides the body with a number of essential nutrients, like vitamins and minerals, omega fatty acids, proteins, flavonoids, and terpenes. Gaining these nutrients, which are often missing from our modern diets, is just one more benefit to adding a hemp oil supplement to your diet.
HOW DOES REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL WORK?
Cannabinoids like those found in Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ act on cannabinoid receptors located in our cells as part of the endocannabinoid system and alter the release of neurotransmitters. The endocannabinoid system predominantly consists of two endocannabinoid receptors: CB1, located in the central nervous system, and CB2, found throughout the peripheral nervous system.
Once the endocannabinoid system is supplemented in this way, it is able to function more efficiently, optimizing the body’s performance each day. Although it is not critical to supplement the endocannabinoid system daily, doing so may increase the effectiveness of CBD and the endocannabinoid system.
INGREDIENTS IN REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL PRODUCTS
The main – and sometimes only – ingredient in RSHO™ is pure and real hemp oil. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil refers to pure hemp oil that features all the same cannabinoids present in the original hemp plant, providing an all-natural CBD hemp oil supplement that allows the cannabinoids to work together in what is called the entourage effect.
However, it isn’t just the cannabinoids that make our CBD hemp oil a valuable addition to your complete diet. Hemp oil also contains many essential vitamins and minerals like , fatty acids, fiber, protein, chlorophyll, flavonoids, and terpenes, making it a beneficial ingredient to add to any diet.
While there are trace amounts of a number of cannabinoids in hemp, the primary compounds are cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) and cannabidiol (CBD). CBDa is more abundant in live hemp than CBD, and to get high levels of CBD in hemp oil products, raw hemp oil must be decarboxylated in a process that heats the oil, changing CBDa into CBD. Both CBDa and CBD have been shown to possess a range of benefits through its interaction with the body’s native endocannabinoid system.
When viewed as a complete dietary supplement, we begin to see the value of hemp oil as an ingredient in our supplements beyond being a source of CBD. The cannabinoids in hemp oil work together in the entourage effect to stimulate the endocannabinoid system and provide balancing effects, while the many nutrients present supplement our deficient modern diets.
Vitamins like vitamin A, B, C, and E are critical to the health of our bodies and the correct functioning of our systems and organs, while minerals like magnesium, iron, potassium, and zinc play an important role in immune function, bone health, metabolism, and oxygen use. Omega fatty acids also play an essential role in overall health of the human body, as does a diet high in fiber.
The recipes for RSHO™ hemp oil products like our capsules and salves also contain herbal ingredients like turmeric root and white willow bark and other all-natural ingredients like beeswax and almond oil.
HOW TO USE REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL
- Similarly, RSHO™ tinctures and liquids can be taken orally and held under the tongue for a minute or more before swallowing. They can also be mixed with your favorite food or beverage.
IS REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL LEGAL?
The cannabis plant has been at the center of worldwide controversy in recent years, as restrictive cannabis policies are starting to shift toward more compassionate medical and recreational use laws. This patchwork of change, however, has created a confusing and often contradicting set of cannabis policies, making it difficult to know exactly where you stand when trying to access cannabis where you live.
GROWING HEMP IN THE U.S.
Although it is legal to manufacture products containing cannabidiol (CBD) from naturally low-THC hemp here in the U.S., it is still largely illegal to grow hemp in America, with small exceptions being made for pilot programs through the 2014 Farm Bill. Therefore, we must import all the hemp oil used in the formulation of our products from international sources.
IS REAL SCIENTIFIC HEMP OIL SAFE?
Your safety and satisfaction are paramount in every decision HempMeds® makes day to day. We take a number of important steps during our manufacturing process to ensure that the CBD hemp oil products that you and your family have come to trust are always the safest and most reliable they can be.
All of the hemp plants used in the creation of our CBD oil products are non-GMO, meaning they haven’t been genetically modified in any way. HempMeds® focuses on harnessing the all-natural benefits of CBD, and that means using all-natural hemp in the creation of all our products.
Because hemp is an efficient bioaccumulator, it is important to avoid using chemical fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides that can cause residual contamination of our products. To protect our customers, we grow all of our hemp without the use of chemicals that may compromise the integrity of our products, causing negative side effects.
To extract our CBD oil from our hemp crops, we use supercritical CO2 in a process that the FDA considers GRAS or “generally regarded as safe”. Because we use a non-toxic solvent, the risk of contaminating our CBD oil is removed.
Our commitment to product quality and purity has driven HempMeds® to develop the strictest testing process in our industry, the Triple Lab Tested™ standard. We use ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited testing labs to examine our hemp oil and assure both its safety and consistency. By testing our hemp oil three times during our process, we ensure that our products are completely safe for use by you and your entire family.
RSHO™ has no serious negative side effects, and CBD oil products won’t get you high. When CBD oil is derived from hemp like in RSHO™ products, it alone cannot produce psychoactive side effects since CBD hemp oil contains only trace levels of THC – far too little to be psychoactive at suggested serving sizes, even in our most concentrated products.
CBD FROM HEMP
Hemp has become a popular legal source of cannabinoids like CBD in a number of countries around the world. Legal hemp is classified here in the U.S. as having a THC content of less than 0.3% by dry weight.
Working with farmers in Northern Europe, we carefully tested and reviewed 3,000 cultivars of hemp to find the one that would thrive and produce the optimal ratio of cannabinoids necessary for our products. The hemp oil sourced from these hemp plants are high in CBD and low in THC, the cannabinoid that gets users high.
