Ingredients for Green Garden Gold CBD Coconut Oil

Ingredients for Green Garden Gold CBD

Ingredients:

  • MCT Coconut Oil
    Contains MCT’s aka medium-chain triglycerides, a type of healthy fat which provides immediate energy without yoyoing your blood sugar
  • A dropper provides 9 calories from healthy MCTs
  • Hemp extract (33mg)
    Contains CBD, but well below therapeutic levels
  • CBD is the main anti-inflammatory cannabinoid in the industrial hemp extract. This is the active ingredient which provides relief from anxiety and pain syndromes without producing a psychoactive effect or other side effects
  • Natural flavoring
  • Green Garden Gold CBD Oil Terpenes like myrcene add flavor
  • Terpenes are known to boost the therapeutic effect of CBD
  • Other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, but no THC
  • Cannabinoids other than CBD and THC are known to aid in the therapeutic effects of CBD.

How it works

Cannabidiol

CBD is cannabidiol which has been shown to reduce symptoms in seizure disorders and shows promise in treating many other discomforts, especially involving pain and hyper excitation. 

Terpenes

Terpenes like myrcene and limonene provide fruity scents and taste and also boost the effect of cannabidiol and other terpenes. 

MCTS

Medium-chain triglycerides provide a healthy form of quick energy that will not affect your blood sugar.  MCTs, raise your good cholesterol. 

Other Cannabinoids

Other cannabinoids in hemp oil also have some therapeutic effect, reducing inflammation and boosting the effects of the other ingredients.  This is called the ‘entourage’ effect. 

Fatty acids

Figure 2.https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/article/nutrition-articles/dark-side-coconut-oil-cautionary-tale-coconut-oil-extremists/

Coconut oil contains several saturated (saturated fats from natural sources like milk and animals are healthy in moderation, not to be confused with artificially saturated fat such as partially hydrogenated oils) fatty acids with health benefits including

  • palmitic,
  • myristic,
  • lauric,
  • caprylic,
  • caproic,
  • capric,
  • stearic acid

Coconut oil also contains monounsaturated, including oleic acid which has anti-cancer effects.  There are also polyunsaturated fats like linoleic oil, important for skin and brain function. 

Hemp Oil

Oil derived from hemp will contain levels of other phytonutrients from the hemp plant. 

How to Use GGG CBD Coconut oil

Since you have coconut oil in a dropper, you can put a dose under your tongue, in your coffee, or on your skin.  A dropper full will have 10 to 33 mg of hemp extract.  In general, however, one half to one dropper full will be a beginning dose to try if you know you are not allergic to cannabis products.  If you do not know, use one drop, wait 90 mins.  Then try a few more drops, wait.  If no bad reaction, continue with a dropper full and go from there.

Certificates

Green Garden Gold displays third-party lab analyses to verify the strength of its products:

Green Garden Gold certificate

The following stamps are used by GGG to notify customers of its quality control measures. 

CO2 certificate

This is used to show the product uses supercritical CO2 extraction which is supposed to produce a cleaner and more potent product. 

GGG’s hemp is sourced in Colorado, a type of hemp which is universally considered to be of high quality.  We give GGG the thumbs up for making sure they have the best hemp source.  This makes all the difference.

full spectrum stamp

This stamp indicates a product which contains the full entourage of cannabinoids, not just CBD, while still lacking THC (below 0.3 %). 

security stamp

This stamp indicates security measures have been taken to protect your identity and financial information.

Standout Features and Negatives

If Green Garden Gold has something above its competitors, I would start with the website.  It is well-done and extensive.  The President and CEO appear in a video to vouch for the products, unlike some sites that provide no information about employees, the company, location, or means of production.  Green Garden is one of the most transparent sites I’ve seen.  They even picture their main headquarters. 

As far as quality control, they claim to use third-party testing and post the results of lab analyses online.  All of these are good signs.  The products are also well-packaged and label which is very important for you to remain on the right side of the law.  These products should be carried in their original containers and boxes because they may smell like weed oil and in jurisdictions where that is illegal, this could get you in trouble even if when it is all said and done, the court rules that you were in the bounds of the law (this situation happened in the USA, all charges dropped but no reimbursement for the jail time the poor guy experienced). 

GGG has at least 24 products from balms to Green Garden Gold CBD, terpenes alone, and many other products so you will not lack for ways to take these products. 

A possible negative is that since this is a supplement and not a medicine, you have to do your own research and experimentation about how to use the product.  You can start with mere drops under the tongue to test for allergies or side effects and move on to half a dropper, then a dropper, always waiting 90 minutes to test effects.

Does Green Garden CBD Coconut oil have any side effects?

Green Garden Gold CBD Coconut oil has few side effects.  Normal amounts do not contain enough calories to put you over your caloric limit for the day, although fats have more calories than protein or sugars.  Therefore, if you are going to cook with this coconut oil, measure your fat calories the same as you would with any other type of oil.  This oil is a fat, though a healthy one, but in excess can have negative health consequences.

 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. 

FDA Disclaimer

Use of CBD products with the exception of Epidiolex and Sativex has 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.
