Advantages of Bluebird Botanicals Hemp Oil

Bluebird Botanicals has possibly the greatest credibility of any company we have reviewed.  They make labs for all batches available.  They include both CBD and CBDa in their products.  Instead of trying to confuse customers about what is hemp extract versus hemp seed oil, they carefully explain the differences on their website.  Hemp extract is an extract of the whole plant which contains high levels of CBD.  Hemp seed oil has low levels of CBD but high levels of healthy fatty acids and vitamins.

Bluebird Botanicals ships all over the United States and has programs to assist the disabled, veterans, and low-income.

Q&A about Bluebird Botanicals CBD

Q:What is in hemp extract?
A:Cannabinoids like CBD, CBDa, and THC.  Terpenoids which give fragrance and flavor like myrcene and limonene.  The hemp used by Bluebird Botanicals contains over 80 different cannabinoids, including cannabigerol, cannabinol, and cannabichromene.  40% of Hemp extract is cannabidiol.  Hemp extract also contains healthy fatty acids, vitamins, and amino acids.

Q:Is hemp the same as marijuana?
A:No. Industrial hemp is a type of cannabis sativa.  Marijuana can be cannabis ruderalis, sativa, or indica.  Hemp has few buds and is grown to be long and fibrous.  Marijuana is full of buds with high levels of THC.  Industrial Hemp has only trace amounts of THC.  Innovative growers like Bluebird Botanicals’ farmers are trying to make varieties of industrial hemp which has more buds with high levels of cannabinoids but still low levels of THC.  Hemp must have thc levels not greater than 0.3%.

Q:Where does Bluebird Botanicals source its hemp?
A:It is grown in Colorado.  There is some Canadian grown hemp seed oil also in the preparations.

Q:What extraction methods are used?
A:Alcohol extraction and CO2 extraction, both clean and proven.

Q:What amount can I vape?
A:Try using half of your favorite vape juice and half Bluebird Botanicals CBD vape juice.

Q:Do I need a specific vape pen?
A:Nope.  Bluebird Botanicals recommends two particular vape pens on its website which are good choices.

Q:Can I overdose on cbd?
A:There is no known overdose for CBD.  As always, check the other ingredients in any product for which you may accidentally use more than recommended.

Q:Does Bluebird Botanicals vape have nicotine in it?
A:No, it does not.

Q:What’s a good starting dose?
A:15 drops of Bluebird Classic CBD oil will give you about 10 mg of CBD.

Q:How long does it last? How to store it?
A:Store at room temperature.  The oil can last up to 18 months.

Q:Will it affect my work?
A:Bluebird Botanicals CBD products contain no THC and will not affect your working ability.  It will reduce pain and anxiety which may improve working ability.

Q:Will CBD interact with my meds?
A:You should consult your doctor to eliminate drug interactions.  There have not been many reports of adverse drug interactions with CBD.

Q:Is sublingual better or vape?
A:Sublingual for now.  It is not truly known if vape delivers therapeutic levels of CBD.

Q:Is CBD the same as marijuana?
A:CBD stands for cannabidiol.  It is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, one among as many as 125 identified cannabinoids in industrial hemp.
CBD is not pot, marijuana, hash, weed, or cannabis sativa.  Bluebird Botanicals’ CBD products contain no psychoactive THC, only small amounts of therapeutic thc, with large amounts of therapeutic CBD.  Marijuana usually contains THC which is psychoactive, industrial hemp CBD-rich extract does not.

Q:What other cannabinoids are found in hemp oil?
A:Hemp oil may contain over 125 cannabinoids, including:

  • THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
  • THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin)
  • THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)
  • CBV (cannabivarin)
  • CBT (cannabicitran)
  • CBN (cannabinol)
  • CBDA (cannabidiolic acid)
  • CBDV (cannabidivarin)
  • CBE (cannabielsoin)
  • CBG (cannabigerol)
  • CBGM (cannabigerol monomethyl ether)
  • CBGV (cannabigerovarin)
  • CBL (cannabicyclol)
  • CBD (cannabidiol)
  • CBCV (cannabichromevarin)
  • CBC (cannabichromene)

Q:Is it legal?
A:Yes, with some caveats.  CBD and CBDa is legal in most states of the United States as long as it comes along with no more than 0.3% thc.  CBD all by itself, is pretty much legal everywhere.  However, you could still run into legal problems if you have a cop or court which is hell-bent on charging people with violation of marijuana laws or even laws about where you can buy non-psychoactive hemp.  This is rare but has happened on occasion.
CBD is legal in many countries, including:

  • Argentina,
  • Austria,
  • Belgium,
  • Belize,
  • Brazil,
  • Bulgaria,
  • Canada,
  • Chile,
  • China,
  • Colombia,
  • Costa Rica,

  • Estonia

Q:Is hemp oil new?
A:Hemp has been around for at least 12,000 years.  The ban in the United States is a violation of human rights.

Q:How does CBD work?
A:CBD binds to receptors in the central nervous system including endocannabinoid receptors which help modulate the levels of monoamines, perceptions of pleasure and pain, and mood.

Q:Is CBD psychoactive? Will it make you high?
A:No, and no.

Q:Does Bluebird Botanicals provide 3rd party labs on their website?
A:Yes and the labs confirm that the CBD hemp oil product contains therapeutic levels of CBD and CBDa.

Q:What’s the difference between CBD, hemp oil, and hemp extract?
A:CBD means cannabidiol.  It is a single cannabinoid, the second most abundant in marijuana and the most abundant in low thc hemp.  CBD isolates contain CBD as the only component.  Hemp oil is hemp seed oil.  It contains healthy fatty acids, but only very low levels of CBD.  Hemp extract is hemp oil extracted from the whole plant, standardized for levels of CBD.  Unscrupulous companies will try to confuse consumers, passing off hemp seed oil as CBD oil.  Bluebird Botanicals CBD is legit and upright about its CBD levels.

Conclusion

Grade:  A+

Bluebird Botanicals CBD oil is one of the top CBD products on the market today.  Their products often combine CBDa and CBD, and do so in a 1:1 ratio, very rare in the industry.  They have very good buzz in media and from consumers alike and have garnered awards for their products and practices.  They ship internationally and have a wide range of products.  They do not have products geared toward children and they do not make health claims on their website.  It is a sign of an immature company which may soon be attacked by the FDA when a company makes health claims for CBD.  In our reviews, we try to make claims that CBD is a supplement used for stress, and sometimes for stress in persons with health conditions.  Stress is not a medical condition, nor is anxiety, though the FDA can try to stretch its mandate to try to take CBD companies out.  We’ve seen FDA letters to various companies and saw that they took great liberties in condemning health claims made for CBD.  Simply listing the studies for what CBD is proven to do is not making health claims for one’s own products.  If you were selling oranges and listed studies for the hesperidin contained in oranges, that doesn’t mean the orange is now a pharmaceutical drug you are selling illegally.  That’s a slippery slope.  You could claim people are selling drugs if they sell any food that way, because food usually contains something which has been made into a pharmaceutical.  In any case, Bluebird Botanicals stays on the right side of the law and makes great products.

CBD oil disclaimers (please read, this is important):
General Medical Disclaimer: NCSM and its employees and partners do not represent the medical establishment and our information is not a replacement for your doctor’s advice.

Food and Drug Administration Disclaimer:  Use of CBD products with the exception of Epidiolex and Sativex have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA.  These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Drug Screening Disclaimer:  While most CBD products claim to have little to no THC, it is theoretically possible to fail a drug test for THC.  This can happen because some CBD products have been tested to have far more THC than represented on the label.  Also, CBD is similar in structure to THC.
