Hemp (Flower) Essential Oil
100% Pure Essential Oil, steam-distilled from fresh, no-spray BAOX Hemp (Cannabis sativa) flowers and leaves. It has a potent marijuana aroma with bright, astringent and citrus notes and earthy undertones. No detectable THC or significant CBD. Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene give this essential oil anti-inflammatory properties.**
Batch CS-005 (September, 2021):
Hemp essential oil is also known as “Raw Terpenes” in the greater Cannabis industry. Being steam-distilled from fresh hemp (Cannabis sativa) flowers/buds and leaves, it does not contain THC or significant CBD. Instead, it is simply the aromatic compounds (a.k.a. naturally-derived and complete terpene profile).
This batch was distilled from the BAOX cultivar of hemp plants that were selectively bred from Otto II and Hindu Kush marijuana strains to remove the THC content, increase the CBD content and to exhibit close aromatic/flavor characteristics to its parents. We grew 65 “Baox” hemp plants in a partner farm’s 3-season greenhouse in Marshall, NC. Rain and well water were used to drip-irrigate the plants and the soil was amended with organic potting soil. While the plants didn’t get very big, they grew heavy with terpene-rich flowers. Each 5ml bottle of our Hemp Essential Oil contains the pure essence from 1 lb of freshly harvested flowers and leaves (no stems; which add a grassy/chlorophyll note). The aroma is a complex tapestry and smells amazing! The initial burst of aroma is very much like skunky marijuana; but with diffusion/evaporation one detects sweet green notes and astringent citrus notes with an earthy pine-like base. The primary components of Hemp essential oil are Myrcene and Beta-Caryophyllene, which are anti-inflammatory. Humulene (like in Hops) adds sedative properties to Hemp flower essential oil.**
*An important distinction between Cannabis essential oil and blended terpene products: Cannabis essential oil is steam-distilled directly from the plant and contains all (dozens) of the trace aromatic compounds that make up the plant’s smell/flavor. Terpene blends (available in a variety of profiles/strains like White Widow) are not extracted directly from that strain, but instead are blended from several base terpenes (aromatic compounds) isolated from various plants or synthesized in a lab. There is little research but compelling evidence that terpenes play a significant role in the varying physiological effects of different hemp and marijuana strains. Much like the purported but difficult to measure advantages of a full-spectrum CBD extract, we would call hemp essential oil a full-spectrum terpene extract.
