What is cold-pressed solventless extraction?

    This proprietary extraction method uses only water, ice, heat, and very high pressures to extract the plant’s oils. The final product is a stable and ultra-pure CBD that is completely free of chlorophyll and other non-useful compounds. Most importantly, the final product remains 100% organic and free of any chemicals or solvents. Industrial-scale equipment capable of this process is very expensive, and the extraction technique is hard to learn and labor-intensive, thus Solventless extracted oils or tinctures tend to be on the pricier side. 

    Why do we choose not to extract with solvents or gasses at our farm?

    Although solvent and gas extraction can be much faster and cheaper, these extraction processes destroy the plant waxes of cannabis, which contains many of its other phytocannabinoids and nutrients. As discussed above, all of these cannabinoids work together to give the user the full “entourage effect”. There is no way to keep these health benefits intact using solvent extraction. 

    Cannabinoids are alcohol-soluble and oil-soluble. In this method, solvents are used as carriers to draw out the cannabis plant’s precious oils. The final product can be rather impure, with 20% of the solvent being left behind. This is an issue because with cheaper extraction methods, petroleum derivatives, butane, or hexane are used. These chemicals are neurotoxic and dangerous to one’s health, therefore, customers should be discerning when selecting your CBD products.

    What is water-soluble CBD?

    CBD in its natural form is not water-soluble. Water-soluble CBD is specially engineered for most of our product formulations to naturally improve the bioavailability of our CBD. In general, CBD has very low bioavailability because it is naturally fat-soluble which makes it harder for your body to utilize.

    What is live rosin CBD and why is it so important for our products?

    Our live rosin CBD is a more potent and pure form of CBD and it is undoubtedly the most premium extract on the market. Live rosin is more potent than normal CBD because it retains more of its cannabinoids and terpenes since it is extracted with fresh harvested hemp that is not dried or cured. This is not to be confused with live resin, which is a form of CBD extracted with solvents.

    What terpenes can be found in your products?

    Our hemp plants produce a very profound number of terpenes which stay fully intact during extraction due to our proprietary solventless extraction method. Some of the major terpenes found in our CBD include Alpha-Pinene, Beta-Myrcene, Beta-Pinene, Limonene, Carvophyllene, Humulene, Gualol to name a few.

    Can I fail a drug test from taking this product?

    Our topical skincare products are made with broad-spectrum CBD which means that it contains 0.0% THC in it. The use of this product will not show any THC in your system on a drug test.

    Our oral products (CBD Wellness Shot and Cold-Pressed Oil) are made with full-spectrum CBD, meaning there are trace amounts of THC (always less than the legal limit of 0.3%), therefore, if you are concerned about failing a drug test we recommend not using our oral products.

    Do you have independent, third-party lab tests?

    Yes, all of our third-party lab testing is available via email request to info@causemedic.com.

    How long does the effect of these products last?

    While this largely varies from individual to individual, the effects of CBD typically last between four to six hours. This can vary based on dosage, administration method, as well as your specific body chemistry.
