With the fast-paced growth of the CBD market it is important to consider these questions to ask when searching for a company to buy high-quality CBD oil products. Important questions include:
- What is the source and variety of hemp they use to produce their product?
- What extraction method is used to produce the raw hemp extract?
- Does the company use nanoemulsion technology?
- What is the quality of the other ingredients in the products they offer?
The company you are researching should readily provide this information without hesitation. Good and respectable companies will have the source of their hemp, the extraction method, and the source of the other ingredients readily available (not hidden) on their website. Rule out any company that does not provide you with this information. Remember, it all starts with a plant. If the company has a bad source, poor extraction methods, or low-quality added ingredients in their products, the result will be that you consume a low-quality product. Always make sure your hemp is sourced in the United States. Other countries don't have the same regulations at the U.S. and also may use pesticides that you would consume if you were to use hemp oil extracted from their plant.
All Thryv Organics products are sourced in the United States only from high-quality producers. What you need to look for when discussing where product is sourced is the following:
- Is the product sourced from industrial hemp or phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp?
Typically, industrial hemp will be of lower quality because it usually requires more processing therefore extracting out many of the beneficial compounds of the hemp extract. Industrial hemp will usually have less CBD and terepenes in the product as well. PCR hemp is of higher quality because the hemp has gone through an initial filtration process and distillation that has removed unwanted compounds in the hemp - chlorophyll and waxes. This results in a higher concentration of CBD than the industrial, or raw, extract, hence the word RICH in CBD-rich oil. Also, in PCR hemp you will find phytocannabinoids or cannabinoids produced by plants, that mimic endocannabinoids which are produced naturally by all mammals and are well received by our body's endocannabinoid receptors. Other cannabinoids found in PCR hemp are cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabigerol (CBG). Both are believed to have properties similar to CBD, are non-psychoactive, and are produced early in the hemp's growth cycle.
- What type of processing does the hemp go through to product their product?
Thryv Organics softgels go through another processing step. The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process called nanoemulson that transforms the oil particles into nano-sized emulsions. The result is the most bioavailable broad spectrum CBD in the industry. Other company's hemp oil particles range between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Thryv Organics particles are around 25. The smaller particle size allows for more effective absorption by the body. Nanoemulsion makes Thryv Organics softgel formulas two times more bioavailable than other oil-based products.
Other proprietary technology is used to create the water-soluble hemp powder used in Thryvs' dog treats. Being water-soluble allows for more bioavailability than standard hemp oil because our body is able to absorb the water-soluble product. Both of the processes our products go through before they end up in the bottle allows for you to use less of the product to reach the same level of benefit as the products sold by most other companies.
The Other Ingredients
The other ingredients found in the hemp product you are purchasing is equally as important as the hemp oil itself. If the quality and processing of the other ingredients is poor, you will have a sub-par product that may not work well with the hemp oil it is incorporated with. Always ask what the other ingredients are and if they are organically produced. Check the company to make sure their Certificate of Analysis has the other ingredients listed as well as the quality of all ingredients.
