Have you ever heard that boiling vegatables (high-heat) can cause a loss of a large portion of the nutrients in those products? Water-soluble nutrients like vitamin C and vitamin B and a group of nutrients called polyphenolics seem to be the most vulnerable to degradation in processing and cooking. The same is true when extracting CBD from hemp plants. The high-heat processes in distillation and isolates can cause a loss of many components which come together synergistically in the entourage effect. The way the processing is done makes a major difference in the end result.

• Is the THC level state certified to be 0.0%?
• Is the CBD obtained from a broad-spectrum plant naturally phytocannabinoid rich in CBD? ...and,
• Are the "entourage" components like CBG, CBN, CBC included in the products?
• Are the terpenes, flavonoids, anti-oxidants, and essential amino acids also included?
• Is the manufacturing done with low heat and enclosed continual processing to avoid damaging the products?
• Are the production batches continually tested and confirmed by independent 3rd party labs?
• If you are buying on-line or by telephone, are the products shipped at no additional cost?
• If the company is an on-line business, do they want your name and email before showing the product prices?
• Have people had excellent results with the products?
