Things you need to know before purchasing CBD products
There are many variations of CBD products on the market today and not all have the same benefits or quality as others, so below is an explanation on what type of CBD products you should be looking for to get the best results and understanding the terminology of products on the market.
Note: The best carriers oils to look for in CBD products is MCT or Hemp carrier oils.
What is CBD Isolate?
In plain terms CBD isolate is CBD in its purest form, it is isolated cannabidiol. When the producer performs their extraction process, everything is removed or filtered out of the hemp plant except for cannabidiol, which is the CBD compound. This leaves you with a pure CBD product. During the Isolate process all compounds are completely removed - terpenes, non-CBD cannabinoids like THC, chlorophyll, and organic matter.
Note: (Life X-Cel CBD Isolate products follow this criteria).
What is CBD Full Spectrum?
Full spectrum CBD contains all the benefits of the whole hemp plant Full spectrum CBD contains an array of cannabinoids, CBD terpenes, and vitamins that are very beneficial to the body. However, it contains negligible amounts of THC so you will not become high, some finished products contain no THC or less then 0.03%. CBD alone is an incredible healing source but there are other cannabinoids/compounds found in the hemp plant that have proven to alleviate symptoms for illnesses. While a CBD isolate is the isolated cannabidiol in its purest form, full spectrum CBD contains other beneficial compounds. The carrier oil to look for when purchasing CBD (FSO) Full Spectrum Oil is MCT or Hemp carrier oils as they have added health benefits that will compliment the CBD product you are using.
Note: (Life X-Cel CBD Full Spectrum products follow this criteria).
What is CBD Distillate?
CBD distillate contains different cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant materials and derives from the marijuana plant not the hemp plant that is used for creating CBD Isolate & CBD Full Spectrum products.The terpenes and cannabinoids found in distillates can be healthy and beneficial for the body, but CBD distillate has a much higher THC content. A CBD distillate is commonly sourced from a marijuana plant which is high in THC the chemical that produces mind-altering effects.
Note: (Life X-Cel CBD products only use CBD oil derived from the Hemp Plant and does not offer Distillate products).
What's MCT Carrier Oil
MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides, MCT oil is most commonly extracted from coconut oil, as more than 50% of the fat in coconut oil comes from MCTs. They are metabolized differently than the long-chain triglycerides (LCT) found in most other foods. MCT oil is a supplement that contains a lot of these fats, and is claimed to have many health benefits.
Note Life X-Cel products use MCT and Hemp as carriers oils.
What Is Hemp Carrier Oil
Hemp seed oil - is cold-pressed extract from seeds. “Hemp seed oil, sometimes referred to as cannabis sativa seed oil, is perfectly good seed oil that’s high in antioxidants, omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.
Note Life X-Cel products use MCT and Hemp seed as carriers oils.
How much CBD am I getting in each dropper
To figure out how much CBD is in each dropper-head (A full dropper- gives you 1 ml of tincture), Here’s a simple equation to use:
[Total CBD in Bottle 500mg 1000mg etc] ÷ [Number of mL in Bottle] = Total milligrams (mg) CBD in Dropper
For example, for a 30mL bottle of CBD tincture with 1000mg of CBD:
1000 ÷ 30 = 33.3 mg of CBD per dropper
Life X-Cel Seacream
is a topical salve formulated with nano CBD and Ocean Enhanced with single-atom sea minerals, which potentiate the effects of the CBD molecules. Skin has a significant number of endocannabinoid receptors within it. There are more CB2 receptors on your skin than anywhere else in your body, and topical preparations are able to interact with them, concentrating the effects locally. SeaCream is known to provide significant relief for site-specific skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rashes, hemorrhoids and acne.
SeaCream is also formulated with lemongrass, which further drives its restorative elements beyond the skin to penetrate into the joints, muscles and ligaments. Applied topically, Sea Cream has shown to provide fast-acting relief against pain and inflammation cause by injury or arthritis.
To use, simply emulsify the salve sparingly between your fingers until it melts slightly into an oily texture and cover the afflicted area 2 to 3 times daily. For persistent pain, re-apply when necessary and take in conjunction with Life X-Cel CBD tincture.
