CBD products such as topical creams and tinctures contain hemp-derived CBD and sometime other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBN. Cannabinoids occur naturally in hemp. Individually and in concert, they have documented effects on the brain and body. (See our post on cannabinoids for more information).
Before being incorporated into products, CBD and other compounds must be extracted from the hemp plant. Conventional methods use solvents at low temperatures (sometimes very low) out of concern that higher temperatures will degrade the cannabinoids.
But our research shows that hemp extracts made at high temperatures offer unique benefits and may be more effective. High temperatures transform the cannabinoids which leads to different effects on the brain and body.
Survey data and reviews suggest that Profound Naturals tinctures and topicals made with high heat hemp extracts are uniquely effective.
