How We Make Our Acidic Cannabinoids Complex Formula
Before the hemp plant is exposed to heat, cannabinoids in their natural form are found in an acidic state. Examples are Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGa) and Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDa). When acidic cannabinoids are heated during distillation (through a process called decarboxylation, or sometimes through aging under the sun), the carboxylic acid group is expelled in the form of CO2. This reaction is what transforms CBGa into CBG and CBDa into CBD. To create our Acidic Complex Formula, we had to make sure our acidic cannabinoids were not exposed to any heat to preserve the acidic cannabinoid in its natural form.
Initially, the acidic forms of cannabinoids were mistakenly believed not to be pharmacologically active. However, new research has challenged this belief and is exploring the exciting biological and therapeutic potential of these acidic precursors.
Complete Hemp’s extracts are made from organically grown agricultural hemp plants, blended with organic hemp oil that is cold-pressed from hemp seeds for additional nutritional synergy. Hemp seed oil is rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and high in balanced Omega 6 and 3 essential fatty acids.
Complete Hemp’s line of products is rigorously tested for identity, potency, and purity. In addition to the testing during manufacturing in our GMP compliant facilities, every batch is third-party tested by an independent ISO-certified laboratory. Additionally, our products are tested to verify they contain <0.3% THC. Complete Lab Analyses and testing results are available by scanning the QR codes on our website.
