Q: Will I fail a drug screening from taking Nano Enhanced hemp oil?
A: Most work-place drug screens and tests target delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and do not detect the presence of Cannabidiols or other legal natural hemp based constituents. However, studies have shown that eating hemp foods and oils can cause confirmed positive results when screening urine and blood specimens. Accordingly, if you are subject to any form of drug testing or screening, we recommend (as does the United States Armed Services) that you DO-NOT ingest this product. Prior to consuming these products consult with your healthcare practitioner, drug screening\testing company or employer.
Q: Is our Nano-Enhance Hemp Oil THC free?
A: No. However, our Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil is well below the federal THC limit of .3% THC. We analyze levels of Cannabinoids in the hemp extract and Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil. See Certificate of Analysis.
Q. What sets our Nano-Enhance Hemp Oil apart from all other hemp oils on the market?
A: Increased absorption and bioavailability. In a study comparing a 5mg dose of PrimeMyBody's Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil to a 10mg dose of a competitor’s pharmaceutical synthetic cannabidiol (CBD), the Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil showed a 5.5-fold increased bioavailability over the leading pharmaceutical.
Q: What does "Nano-Enhanced" mean?
A: The formation of our extract produces particle sizes below 100nm, which some people would call nanotech just because of the size. These lipid particles are very similar to particles the body makes, called chylomicrons, to move triglycerides.
Q: Is our Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil USDA certified organic?
A: No. To be clear, organic certification programs for hemp oil do not exist within the USDA. Our hemp extract undergoes rigorous testing for microbes, metals, pesticides, herbicidal residues and residual solvents once received in our laboratory. Potency, metals, and microbes are again measured in our final product, Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil. See the Certificate of Analysis.
Q: Where do we source our extract?
A: We source our hemp extracts from both foreign and domestic sources. These hemp sources specifically cultivate for consumer use and comply with federal regulation for distribution in the US and abroad.
Q: What is the purpose of phosphotydylcholine?
A: Phosphatidylcholine (from sunflower seed oil) is the emulsifier or encapsulating agent used to stabilize and enhance absorption of the small oil droplets and it is highly beneficial nutrient that is a choline source and beneficial for cell membranes, aiding in liver and brain function.
Q: What refinement process is used to create the hemp extract from the hemp plant?
A: Super critical (high pressure) CO2 extraction process. There are no chemicals used in this process.
Q: What are phytocannabinoid diols?
A: Phytocannabinoid diols are chemical compounds containing two hydroxy groups originating from the industrial hemp plant.
Q: How many milligrams of phytocannabinoid diols are in Nano-Enhance Hemp Oil?
A: In a single serving (2mL) of Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil there are 16 mg of Phytocannabinoid Diols.
Q: Do we use PEG (polyethylene glycol) in our formulation of Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil?
A: We use tocophersolan (TPGS, tocopherol polyethylene glycol succinate-1000) in our formulation for stabilizing the lipid membranes. Tocophersolan is a synthetic water-soluble version of vitamin E that is an amphiphile – meaning it has both water soluble and fat soluble sections, making it useful as an emulsifier. To be clear, polyethylene glycol it is NOT ethylene glycol, as in antifreeze, and is NOT a plastic.
Tocophersolan has a record of safety based on decades of use in animals and humans and on reported toxicology studies. Studies in humans included dosing of children with digestive malabsorption (i.e. cholestasis) at 40-50 times higher concentrations than that in our Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil for over two years with no adverse events. To achieve this safety level, the absolute highest grades of ingredients were needed in order to avoid the contaminants that make common polysorbates questionable for extended dosing. These high grades of raw materials make tocophersolan ~10X the cost of polysorbates and other commonly used emulsifiers. It is so clean, that it was give the safest rating for an additive by Environmental Working Group. It is safe for transportation, storage and handling. Tocophersolan has a self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) status when used as an oral dietary supplement of vitamin E.
Q: What gets taken out?
A: Terpenoids — some remain and some are lost
Other cannabinoids — what remains is a natural spread of plant cannabinoids
Pollutants — we purify the oil we get from our sources, so as to remove any contaminants
Q: Is Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil tested for microbes and metal impurities?
A: Yes, all incoming hemp extract is tested for microbes, metals, pesticides, herbicidal residues and residual solvents. Metals, microbes, and potency testing is then repeated on the final product, Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil.
Q: With the December 14, 2016 ruling by the DEA, can we sell Nano-Enhanced Hemp Oil in every state?
A: We believe so. In a statement to the International Business Times, Robert Hoban, a Colorado cannabis attorney and adjunct professor of law at the University of Denver said, “This action is beyond the DEA’s authority. The DEA can only carry out the law, they cannot create it. Here, they’re purporting to create an entirely new category called ‘marijuana extracts,’ and by doing so wrest control over all cannabinoids. They want to call all cannabinoids illegal. But they don’t have the authority to do that.”
After consulting their legal advisory team, the Hemp Industry Association has also chimed in, stating, "There is general agreement that yesterday's ruling did not change the status of CBD." The HIA noted the following important facts:
