CBDa and Our New Product Process
While at the Industrial Hemp Summit this week one area of interest was the Panel Group on Extraction and the explanation of CBDa and all it's benefits and newest studies. It actually led us to start developing some new products, but more on that later.
"CBDA is thought to be very beneficial for nausea and anxiety. A 2013 study from scientists in Guelph, Canada, found that CBDA was a thousand times more powerful than CBD in binding to a specific serotonin receptor linked to anti-nausea and anti-anxiety effects." CBDa is primarily what is in our hemp plants, however it's typically converted to CBD with heat.
When we came back from the Summit it was straight to work using our own naturally extracted full spectrum CBDa oil to develop new formulas for the perfect lotion and oil.
We always start with base materials and slowly add what is needed while creating multiple samples. In the end we do a lot of testing and sniffing and rate our favorites. The next step is making very limited batches and getting samples to friends and customers for testing and feedback. This phase normally takes weeks as we give away a lot of product and just wait to hear what people like most and might change. We aren't quite to the handing out samples phase of our new lotion but it won't be long now!
