Cannabidiol is a natural chemical compound —a “cannabinoid”— found in cannabis. With hemp, you get the benefits of hemp and other trace cannabinoids without the intoxicating properties of THC, as found in marijuana varieties of the cannabis species.
Unlike marijuana, hemp-derived oil does not cause a “high” and is legal in the U.S. without the need for a medial card. Hemp is a robust doesn’t require herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers to grow.
Background on Bluebird Botanicals Signature Blend
Hemp was one of the first crops ever cultivated. It is robust and doesn’t require herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers to grow. There are no negative side effects to consuming hemp, and it’s incredible nutritional values have landed it the title of super-food.
Regardless of its safe nature, hemp fell in and out of legality, starting in the late 1930’s, due to its similar appearance to marijuana. The air was officially cleared with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. About time!
Starting in 2012, Bluebird Botanicals formulated their Signature Blend drops to deliver the benefits of hemp oil, with the combined power of other herbal extracts. Each product is fully traceable with a batch number and lab test results to prove the potency advertised on the bottle.
Why Choose Bluebird Botanicals Signature Blend?
There are many hemp oil tinctures (liquid drops for oral use) on the market, so what makes Bluebird Botanicals hemp oil any different?
Let’s think about it —what are we looking for in a supplement?
Here are a few of the big ones:
- Calm stress and anxiety
- Promote better sleep quality
- Sooth sore muscles and joints
There’s nothing like hemp when it comes to supporting functions in the body; it’s an incredible compound that flawlessly works in the endocannabinoid system.
However, most supplements are so focused on hemp that they don’t consider the other plant extracts that could enhance its therapeutic properties. There’s no doubt cannabidiol should be the active ingredient, but why not do everything possible to attack inflammation and stress from all angles?
Bluebird Botanicals does this with their Signature Blend hemp oil drops.
Full-Spectrum Hemp Oil
The active ingredient in Signature Blend Hemp Oil is hemp oil. It’s full-spectrum, meaning none of the cannabinoid compounds have been removed.
Full-spectrum hemp oil is rich in nutrients and cannabidiol, but also contains trace amounts of other cannabinoids.
Finally, Bluebird Botanicals uses the CO2 extraction method to pull the oil from the plant. In short, CO2 is the cleanest and most environmentally friendly way to extract oils from plants.
Frankincense Oil Extract
CO2 extracted from Boswellia carterii, this oil contains an array of terpenes and aromatic phytochemicals. Frankincense is commonly used to support general wellness.
Black Cumin Seed Oil
The black cumin in Signature Blend is cold-pressed from Nigella sativa seeds. It’s also commonly used to support general wellness, making it a perfect enhancement to this hemp oil supplement.
Hemp Seed Oil
