Frequently Asked Questions
Q) What Are Tinctures?
A) Tinctures are liquid extracts primarily made from herbs that you take orally (by mouth). First developed many centuries ago, precisely derived liquid extracts called tinctures have recently grown in popularity. Tinctures’ ability to preserve the active components of plants, their lengthy shelf life, and their revitalizing effects on health make them an excellent way to treat a range of symptoms.
It is now known that many conventional drugs are derived from plant sources, including aspirin from willow bark, digoxin from foxglove, quinine from cinchona bark, and morphine from the opium poppy. Each has healing value. What is unique about tinctures though is their ability to deliver the health benefits of plants in liquid form.
Tinctures are easy and convenient to use because they are taken directly under the tongue and they enter the bloodstream much more directly than by any other means. This means that the action in the body is usually quicker. You will find that people take tinctures for lots of reasons.
Q) What Is Hemp Oil?
A) Hemp oil is an oil extracted from the hemp plant. All plants in the Cannabis genus can produce the oil, but usually only industrial hemp is used to make hemp oil. Industrial hemp is a hemp varietal that has been cultivated specifically for industrial production, and it has a minimum of the psychoactive substances associated with the genus, most notably THC. Hemp oil is typically almost free of THC and it has no psychoactive properties.
Q) What Makes Hemp Oil Healthy?
A) Hemp oil is rich in protein, polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega 6, omega 3, and insoluble fiber. It is a good source of tocopherols, or Vitamin E antioxidants. It’s also packed with minerals, such as potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, calcium, and phosphorus, plus microelements, like strontium, thorium, arsenic, and chromium.
Hemp oil has been called one of nature’s most balanced oils due to the fact that it contains the perfectly balanced 3:1 ratio of omega 6 (linolei/LA) to omega 3 (alpha-linolenic/LNA) essential fatty acids, determined to be the optimum requirement for long-term healthy human nutrition. In addition, it contains smaller amounts of three other polyunsaturated fatty acids in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid, and stearidonic acid.
Q) What Can Hemp Do?
A) Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. Its seeds and flowers are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals.
The Many Uses Of Hemp
Q) Why Supercritical CO2 Extraction?
A) Revivid Sport hemp oil is extracted and refined using an exclusive supercritical CO2 extraction, resulting in a superior product that is pure, clean and raw. CO2 extraction is the purest extraction process known to man. The end product contains no residue. We inhale oxygen (O) and exhale carbon dioxide (CO2).
CO2 is a naturally occurring trace gas in our atmosphere and has many common uses in our daily lives, from carbonating soft drinks and beer to the dry ice form of CO2 used in cooling grapes for wine making. CO2 is a naturally occurring gas resulting in the absolute cleanest concentrates. Supercritical CO2 has several advantages, including versatility in the end product.
