What Is The Endocannabinoid System?
How should I store Hülsa products?
The product should be stored at room temperature in a dry place.
Can I use one Hülsa product with other Hülsa products?
Yes, the entire Hülsa collection is designed specifically for each item to complement one another.
Is there any THC in Hülsa products?
Hülsa products contain 0% THC and are rigorously tested for quality. Each finished product has been tested three times. Once at harvest, again upon extraction, and lastly upon the final blending of ingredients.
Our third and final test is a full-panel third-party test that looks for the presence of metals, microbials, pesticides, herbicides, THC, and also tests for potency and consistency of our cannabinoids.
Each of our products features a QR Code that directs you to the final COA test results. This dedicated and obsessively transparent process ensures you receive products you can trust to share, apply, and consume with confidence.
Can I return products?
Hülsa customers can receive a full refund on all products returned within 30 days of sale. To return a product, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is CBD Anyway?
Cannabidiol, or CBD as it’s commonly called, is the compound or cannabinoid, found in both the marijuana and hemp plant, both of which are members of the cannabis flowering plant family. Many chemical compounds come from cannabis, and CBD is the second most prevalent of all the active ingredients.
While CBD is a vital component of marijuana, it's mostly derived from the hemp plant, which is related to, or sometimes called the cousin of marijuana. Hülsa products feature CBD and other Critical Cannabinoids™ derived exclusively from hemp plants. Unlike THC predominantly found in marijuana, CBD does not cause you to get “high.”
Hemp vs. Marijuana
To many, hemp and marijuana (often referred to as “cannabis” in our modern society) are the exact same thing, however in reality nothing could be further from the truth. Originating from a class of plants known as Cannabaceae, both hemp and marijuana are two main types or species of cannabis that are cultivated and processed for consumption. Although many different strains with varying effects exist, there are distinct differences between them.
The biggest difference in marijuana vs. hemp is the concentration of the psychoactive compound known as THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol. This is the compound that has the effect of getting you “high.” Hemp on the other hand has a negligible amount of THC. By definition, the hemp plant contains no more than .3% THC. Remember, marijuana often referred to as cannabis, is not hemp.
All Hülsa products are derived exclusively from hemp plants. Once the cannabinoid oil is extracted, an additional step is taken called chromatography that filters out even the small amounts of THC, so our finished products contain 0% THC.
Full Spectrum VS Broad Spectrum
Raw PCR or Phytocannabinoid Rich Hemp Oil contains “terpenes”, and a host of other cannabinoid compounds that are very similar to CBD. The reason these products as “full-spectrum” oils, is because it keeps the natural balance of cannabinoids and terpenes found naturally in Cannabis.
“Broad-spectrum” CBD oil is very similar to a full-spectrum oil, and also contains a concentration of health-boosting cannabinoids and terpenes, but the main difference is the broad spectrum has had all trace amounts of THC removed. This is perfect for anyone who wants 0% THC in the hemp cannabinoid products they apply or consume.
How Hemp Goes From Us to You
Our carefully selected farms grow and harvest the hemp plants right here in the United States. All of our farms are Farm Bill Certified, sustainable, and the hemp grown on our farms is organically grown with the highest of standards and care.
Once the hemp reaches maturity, it is harvested. We then perform a full-panel test which tests for heavy metals, mold, pesticides, herbicides, toxins, and more. Once the test is complete, we review the Certificate of Analysis (or COA ). Once we are satisfied with the test results we proceed to the next step, extraction.
Extract Oil from The Hemp Plant
The harvested and tested hemp plants are then taken to a facility where CO2 is used to extract crude oil from the plants. The oil is dense and cannabinoid-rich.
Purification & Separation (Winterization Process)
The oil then undergoes what is called the Winterization Process, which involves dissolving the extracted oil in ethanol, then placing the mixture in a freezer to chill. The cold allows for the separation of compounds by differences in their melting and precipitation points. It’s then purified further by dewaxing and removal of fats and lipids.
Heat is then used to activate the cannabinoids, making distillate ready for consumption and bioavailability.
Heat and pressure are then used to refine the target active ingredients for a more concentrated oil.
THC Removal (Chromatography)
In this step, THC is removed. Distillates are run through liquid chromatography to yield isolated compounds like CBD, CBG, and CBN. Chromatography is a way of separating chemical compounds to purify a substance. A complex mixture is passed through silica, an inert solid like fine sand, at different rates, therefore separating themselves apart.
Once the CBD-rich Critical Cannabinoid™ oil has completed the processes listed above, we perform an additional test to ensure the THC has been removed.
After the CBD-rich Critical Cannabinoid™ oil preparation is complete and is confirmed to contain 0% THC, it is then combined with our carefully selected, highest-quality natural ingredients to create our variety of ultra-premium products.
Once our ultra-premium ingredients have been combined into our finished products, we perform our third and final full-panel test to ensure that the finished product is perfect to our standards. The results, or Certificate of Analysis (COA), are then made public for you to view via a QR code printed on each of our luxurious product boxes. Simply open your phone's camera and point it at the QR code. Touch the QR link that appears on your screen to be directed to the COA results for that product.
