DIXIE BOTANICALS HISTORY OF HEMP
Hemp extracts have been used for many purposes dating back to the ancient Chinese Pharmacopoeia, written around 5,000 BC. Cannabis and hemp were considered medicines and were listed in the United States as well; in fact, cannabis could be found in the US Pharmacopoeia from 1850 through the early 1940′s.
Despite centuries of hemp farming in the United States – including the hemp farms of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington – hemp agriculture was effectively banned in the United States in 1937. Fortunately for all, hemp products are legally imported into the US every single day, and account for the abundance of hemp foods, hemp clothing, hemp skincare, and hemp dietary supplements found online and in thousands of stores nationwide.
When derived from hemp stalk, the cannabidiol – cbd is a natural constituent of the Hemp Stalk Oil is considered a food nutrient or dietary supplement, delivering the benefits of cannabinoids without the psychotropic/euphoric effects of THC.
We have a passion for the unique botanical profile of our hemp plants. We consider our stalk hemp oil a “whole food”. Our products contain industrial Hemp Stalk Oil pressed from the mature stalk of the industrial hemp plant, and our unique “cultivars” of hemp provide significant quantities and concentrations of cannabidiol – cbd oil and other non-psychotropic phytocannabinoids in this natural oil.
Phytocannabinoids, also known as plant-based cannabinoids, are also found in other plants like flax, cloves, hops and black pepper, but we feel that hemp offers something unique: a harmonious combination of organic plant constituents that is unique in nature. There are over 200 natural compounds found in Cannabis sativa plants. Our goal at Dixie Botanicals is to deliver the natural goodness of hemp to you.
Hemp is a member of the Cannabis sativa L family of plants. It is highly sustainable, is harvested for commercial use, and is a popular worldwide alternative to wasteful raw materials.
Hemp is also an important source for legal cannabinoids, and if you live anywhere in the U.S., you can now add CBD to your daily regimen.
Hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants, but there are key differences. The hemp plant contains no more than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the active compound in marijuana that causes its euphoric effect. Trace levels of THC in hemp means you can benefit from CBD without the intoxicating marijuana “high".
Hemp, as well as marijuana, is deeply in our American revolutionary history. Hemp was widely grown by early American colonists to supply the British navy with canvas and fiber to outfit their ships with sails, rope, and more. They also paid taxes with it, and our Founding Fathers grew hemp. In fact, the first official flag was made with hemp cloth after we fought for and won our independence from England.
Cultivation of non-psychoactive hemp became outlawed in America because of its relationship to psychoactive marijuana because they both are of the Cannabis genus. Only now in the 21st century are hemp and its major cannabinoid, CBD, once again being fully utilized.
CBD hemp oil is a natural botanical concentrate that is derived from the stalk and seed of hemp plants and that is high in the cannabinoid compound CBD, or cannabidiol. More than 100 cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant so far, and CBD, along with THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), is among the the plant’s most common cannabinoids. Both of these cannabinoids provide beneficial effects. However, unlike THC, CBD is non-psychotropic and therefore doesn’t cause a high.
How CBD Products Are Made
Dixie Botanicals® CBD products are crafted using non-GMO hemp oil. Pure CBD hemp oil is extracted from cannabis varieties that are naturally abundant in CBD and low in THC.
A specialized extraction process is used to yield highly concentrated CBD oil that also contains other nutritious material including:
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Amino acids
- Beneficial phytocannabinoids like:
- Cannabichromene (CBC)
- Cannabigerol (CBG)
- Cannabinol (CBN)
This oil can then be formulated into products like tinctures, liquids, and salves.
CBD hemp oil can also be further refined into a 99 percent pure CBD isolate. You can use this powdered CBD in a number of ways, like for dabbing or creating custom edibles. Dixie Botanicals® also uses CBD isolate to formulate some of our products, making them completely THC free.
