What is the difference between CBD and CBDA ?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a natural chemical called a cannabinoid found in cannabis and hemp plants. CBDA is the acidic form of CBD. This means the cannabis/hemp plant in its natural state produces CBD + CBDA. When heated (decarboxylated) CBDA becomes CBD. So, if you juiced raw cannabis plant material you would be taking CBDA and CBD. If you heated it, you would only be getting CBD. Therefore, our Raw CBD Oil 2000 Full Spectrum Hemp Oil is just as nature intended.
Is CBDA better than CBD ?
Some customers report that they get better results using CBD + CBDA, others only CBD. This doesn’t mean that one is better than the other, it is just a matter of finding which one is right for you. Cannabinoids all work together in a synergistic way, this is called 'The Entourage Effect'. Our Raw CBD Oil 2000mg contains CBD + CBDA with over 400 other natural compounds such as terpenes, flavonoids, photo-nutrients etc.
Sometimes it’s just a matter of preference. If you don’t get the results you expect with one product, it’s often a good idea to try another.
Will CBD help my health condition ?
Hemp oil can be consumed as a health supplement. In accordance with regulations, we cannot make health claims regarding our products. Please research CBD oil through other trusted resources such as http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed to educate yourself as to how cannabidiol and hemp may affect the human system. A site we also recommend is www.projectcbd.org
Will I get high from CBD oil ?
Hemp oil contains mainly CBD, a compound which does not make you feel high.
Some customers report that it makes them feel relaxed, others report that in high doses it can have similar effects to drinking coffee. As everybody is different the effects on the body vary.
Does CBD oil show up on a drug test ?
When you get drug tested they normally use a urine or blood sample and check for the presence of THC (Tetrahyrdocannabinol).
THC-COOH, and THC-11-oic acid are formed in the liver after the body has consumed cannabis and it is these chemicals that are tested for when you go for a blood or urine test.
THC-COOH doesn’t have much cross reactivity to the other non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBD (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol) or CBN (cannabinol), which means if you have taken CBD hemp oil you probably won’t get a positive result on any drug test.
Theoretically it is possible that minute traces of THC that could build up over time. Due to differing body weight, metabolic rate and other lifestyle factors it is possible that CBD oil containing as little as 0.02% THC could show up in swabs, blood or urinalysis. Patients must determine for themselves if the severity of their condition outweighs this possibility.
Where can I purchase RSO/THC cannabis oil ?

Price comparison with other CBD brands
We agree that CBD oil is expensive, and we strive to provide CBD at the best possible prices. In fact, when you calculate the price of our CBD and compare it to other providers, you will find that our oil is the best value available. The simple way to do this is to divide the price of the oil by its mg content of CBD (not the ml of liquid in the bottle). For example:
Hempworx 500mg for $70. Divide 70 by 500 = 14c per mg
Hemp Healing 2000mg for $250. Divide 250 by 2000 = 12.5c per mg
Why does the Decarb CBD I buy vary in colour and taste ?
If you have been a long time customer you will have noticed a change in the colour and consistency of the oils you have received.
Endoca have migrated to supplying “Golden Oil” for decarb oil and paste products (raw oils remains unchanged). The golden oil is purely a result of chlorophyll extraction, which provides a more palatable and pleasant taste for those sensitive to the bitterness of thicker green oils. The golden products are therefore also more versatile for various uses, such as topical applications and mixtures. The golden colour and slightly thinner consistency in no way changes the effectiveness or quality of the product, and the CBD concentration levels and quality are equal to those we have always provided. Please feel free to contact us for further information if needed.
