Cannabis Sativa Essential Oil and CBD
Cannabis Sativa Essential oil is legal as it contains only negligible amounts of THC's (psychoactive compounds which create a high) but is thought to offer an array of benefits partly associated with the CBD which is present at high levels in only certain grades of essential oil. We use essential oil derived from Hemp crops grown in Wild Crafted fashion (no agrochemicals) in pristine Normandy, France. It's extracted using a low pressure steam distillation method to protect the active compounds and is exceptionally high in CBD. Some essential oils of Cannabis are entirely devoid of CBD and are often extracted only from the seed of the plant. Ours uses the leaves, stems and even flowering tops of the whole plant to deliver a more potent, complete and more beneficial end product (and also a more pleasing floral/herbal aroma than most of its comparators). Cannabis Essential Oil in studies has been shown to be soothing for delicate and sensitive skins and in other applications considered balancing to mind, body and soul.
We make no therapeutic claims in regard to our products. Zing uses relatively low concentrations of Cannabis Sativa Essential Oil in its products as it can be quite overpowering in aroma if over used. We are unable to assert what proportion of active compounds are available by product.
Our founder Kirsty has been working with Pure Essential Oil of Cannabis Sativa for her own therapeutic benefit since 1990. She resisted formulating products for sale using CBD for several years due to the misunderstanding and taboo surrounding its use. Subsequently as awareness has grown of the holistic benefits of hemp derived CBD, Zing has introduced a number of related products with quite astonishing popularity and feedback. We do not pretend to know everything about hemp derived CBD and need not speculate as there is so much information to be found widely on the internet. And whilst there is little point in using products with low CBD content, we feel that certain oils are considerably more helpful than others. Provenance and traceability of this ingredient and all others is paramount to us at Zing. We insist on seeing lab tests to ensure the CBD content is high and that any heavy metal, hydrocarbon or petrochemical traces are virtually non existent as one would expect with a Wild Crafted product. There are any number of inferior Pure Essential Oils of Cannabis Sativa on the market place and many are being found to be adulterated. You won't find any of these in a Zing Organics product whether it be a candle, a room and linen mist or an organic skincare product. Our founder Kirsty and her long term, knowledgeable and trusted supplier of the Pure Essential Oil of Cannabis that we use are of the view that less is more; that oil of a very high quality (with integrity) is favoured by the customer/client and need not be used to excess. This could be likened to a homeopathic effect.
Products containing pure essential oil of Cannabis Sativa by Zing Organics include our The Big Chill Candles, The Big Chill Room and Linen Mist, our Ah There! Body Oil and our Smoothie Beard and Facial Serum.
