CBD the RYTE Way
I’ve heard a lot about CBD but don’t really know what it is or where it comes from?CBD is short for Cannabidiol, a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in the cannabis plant or hemp plant. When most people think of “cannabis”, they immediately think of Marijuana, but CBD is not Marijuana. It’s actually just one of over 100 naturally occurring compounds in the cannabis plant. These compounds interact with receptors located throughout your nervous system, helping to everything from sleep and pain to anxiety. CBD oil is made by extracting the CBD compound from the hemp plant, a process that pulls the CBD molecule from the plant. The CBD is then mixed with what’s called a carrier oil – ours is organic coconut – and either bottled or added as an ingredient to other products like gummies or lotions.
Will it make me feel "high"?No, CBD will not make you feel high. That high feeling actually comes from another compound found in the cannabis plant, THC (short for delta 9 -tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is psychoactive and causes the sensation of getting “high” that’s often associated with marijuana. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. The federal government has set strict rules for CBD products: legally they must contain less than .3% THC. All of our products are manufactured within strict compliance of these rules. We also make sure every batch is independently 3rd party tested and those results are published on our product page.
How do I know if this is safe?Our tinctures contain just two ingredients: CBD (hemp) extract made from plants grown on our state regulated Colorado farm and organic MCT (coconut oil). That's it! And we control the entire process from farm to bottle so we know exactly what's going into our product. We also follow rigorous testing protocols, testing our products every step of the way to ensure no contaminates or impurities entered the process at any point. You can find the final product test results on the product page under the COA section.
Are there different kinds of CBD? What’s the difference between the bottles?All CBD products in the US are made from industrial hemp plants. Different strains of hemp (cannabis) are grown in different parts of the country, but that doesn’t mean CBD from one plant is better than CBD that comes from another. That’s sort of like saying this Corn or Soybean is better from a chemical or molecular perspective. Our CBD comes from plants grown on our own farm at the base of the Rocky Mountains and is extracted using a clean process called CO2. Other companies might use techniques that use heavy solvents or ethanol to make their product, but that’s really the main difference (we believe in using the cleanest process possible). When you first start looking at CBD products, you’ll see all kinds of numbers on the front of the package: 300, 500, 1000, 2500, or even 8000. Those numbers are just telling you how many TOTAL milligrams of CBD are in that product. A bottle that says 1000 isn’t necessarily better than a bottle that says 500 or 4000. What you want to look at is actually milligrams of CBD per milliliter. That’s what tells you how much CBD is in every dropper or serving. Our bottles come in two potencies: regular and extra strength. The regular bottles (500, 1000, and 4000) are all the same formula and offer 33mg CBD per 1ml dropper. Our extra strength formula delivers double that, or 67mg CBD per 1ml Dropper.
How do I use it?We definitely had to google “tincture” when we got into the industry so any confusion is only natural. What we can tell you is tinctures (concentrated herbal extracts) have been around for thousands of years Tinctures are intended to be taken under the tongue, or sublingually, for the fastest and most efficient absorption. You can also add CBD oils and tinctures to food and drinks for oral ingestion. It’s important to hold under your tongue for about 30 -45 seconds before swallowing. This will allow the CBD to enter your bloodstream through the thin membrane under your tongue, with the benefit being the CBD that’s absorbed will bypass your digestive system. Be sure to shake the bottle well and screw the dropper on tightly once you’re finished. You’ll want to fully submerge dropper into the oil and pinch dropper top (bulb) to draw oil into pipette You also don’t need to worry about filling the pipette completely: our droppers are calibrated to a 1ml dose.
So what does it actually taste like?We like to think we have one of the best tasting, cleanest oils in the entire industry – primarily because we undertake a secondary distillation process which removes much of the bitter plant extract. That said, everyone’s taste buds are slightly different. If you’re new to CBD products, you’ll likely find they have an “earthy”, slightly bitter or peppery aftertaste. For some it’s more faint than others, but you’ll not mistake the CBD for a lollipop. If you’ve taken a few or even many products, you’ll find our oil to be far less “hempy” or earthy than any of our competitors. You’ll also notice our oil’s light golden hue - again because we’ve removed most of the plant impurities while crafting this all natural extract.
When can I expect to see results?CBD works best when you take it every day and it could take up to a few days for your body to respond. Some people report feeling results much sooner - even after just a single dose - while others have said it took a few days for them to feel the full effects. Your body type can also play a part in how it responds to CBD as well as the dosage you're taking. We suggest starting out with at least a half dropper (about 10 drops) which is the equivalent of 16mg CBD; from there you'll increase to a full dropper (the droppers are calibrated to a single mL or the equivalent of a 33mg dose).
