At The CBD Place, we believe in the power of hemp, from the buds right down to the stalk. That’s why our whole-plant hemp extract is carefully cultivated straight from the majestic hemp plant – we even use the hemp seeds as a carrier oil!
Our oil comes straight from the plant, and is cultivated by an employee-owned cooperative of organic local farmers based high in the hills of Southern Spain. Instead of mass-producing at one location, our suppliers tour the area working with a range of local farmers. They offer assistance with growing, advice on the latest industry techniques and help farmers clean up their soil and go organic. All of our farms, from small to large, grow the same seeds and strains to ensure consistency of product, and our suppliers even help their farmers fully monetise their land so that they can grow other crops as well as hemp. We don’t produce our CBD in a laboratory, and our suppliers aren’t scientists. They’re farmers, first and foremost, and take great pride in producing nothing but honest, organic hemp!
But why does whole plant matter? We believe using the entire plant is the only way to produce the very best CBD oil. This is because the different parts of the hemp plant work together as one, helping to boost the many benefits for your health and wellbeing. This is known as the ‘entourage’ effect. CBD is the star of the show, but its strength is boosted by a whole ‘entourage’ of natural compounds called cannabinoids, which are found in the seeds, leaves and stalks of the hemp plant – it’s all about teamwork!
We like to think of it a bit like taking Vitamin C. It’s widely regarded that Vitamin C should be part of a healthy, balanced diet, and Vitamin C supplement pills are one way of delivering this. However, the human body will get more goodness, nutrients and other vitamins from eating an orange than simply taking a pill, while still getting the same level of Vitamin C. So using whole plant hemp extract not only means that no part of the plant is wasted, but also means we are getting every last little bit of goodness out of the plant, too.
All of our hemp extracts are subject to third-party lab testing, including heavy metal tests, and our oil even goes toward helping animal charities in Spain. Our supplier works with an animal transport charity by providing CBD to help animals with the stress of long-haul journeys, and once a year they invite local pets up to the farm to try out CBD and see if they can fix their ailments through the power of hemp.
