We often base purchasing decisions on product descriptions and available specifications. We trust the information that companies are willing to give us. While it’s usually fine to trust a company based on little more than their word, there are occasions when it’s important to expect verification of product claims. Of course, whether or not verification is required depends on the nature of the business.
When you choose to do business with a company involved in the creation or distribution of CBD oil, the ability to verify the quality of your selection is essential. There are simply too many CBD companies trying to take advantage of an unsuspecting public by selling misrepresented, overpriced, or unverified products.
You can protect yourself from purchasing substandard hemp oil products by placing your trust in companies that allow you to verify their claims, companies that give you access to the results of independent third-party testing. Access to this essential information allows you to verify the purity and potency of the products you select.
Understanding the Need for Third-Party Verification
Since hemp has an extraordinary ability to pull contaminants from the soil, any chemicals, toxins, or pesticides in the soil are absorbed by the plant. That’s why It’s essential that the hemp used in the crafting of your CBD products be planted in soil that is free of chemical contamination and grown with organic farming methods. Since CBD is extracted from the stalks and stems of the plant, chemicals and contaminants can make their way into your CBD oil.
While it’s important to test soil for contamination before crops are planted, it’s also important to verify that the resulting crops have remained contaminant-free. Independent third-party testing provides and unbiased product analysis. In addition to checking for pesticide and chemical contamination, accredited testing facilities check the quality of hemp products by:
Verifying the CBD Content
CBD (cannabidiol) is just one of the many cannabinoids found in hemp oil. While the terms “CBD” and “hemp oil” are used interchangeably within our industry, it’s important to know how much CBD your product contains. If you are looking at a product that does not specify the amount of CBD in milligrams, it’s unlikely that the product contains enough CBD to be of any significant value. By viewing the batch testing information of the products you select, you can easily verify that the amount of CBD in your hemp oil matches the product description.
Verifying the THC Content
To be classified as hemp, the law requires that the plant extract contains 0.3 percent THC or less. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the cannabinoid that causes the psychoactive properties of marijuana. Although the trace amounts of THC in full-spectrum hemp oil are not enough to cause intoxication, viewing the batch-test results lets you confirm that the product you select meets government specifications. Those looking for THC-free CBD can use this vital report to verify that the product selected is more than 99 percent pure cannabidiol.
Confirming Additional Cannabinoids
Full-spectrum CBD does contain trace amounts of THC, but it also contains many other potentially beneficial plant-based cannabinoids, including CBG, CBC, and CBDN. Many CBD enthusiasts prefer full spectrum CBD because of a phenomenon called the entourage effect. It’s the entourage effect that explains how each of the many plant components in full-spectrum hemp oil magnifies and multiply the effect of the others. By viewing the documentation provided by a third-party lab, you can easily verify that the product you select contains these potentially beneficial cannabinoids.
Verifying Products are Free of Potentially Harmful Solvents
Hemp oil is extracted from the stalks and stems of the plant much in the same manner as any other essential oil. Since hemp oil is a consumable product, It’s important to verify that your hemp oil has been extracted using a food-safe extraction method. The two most commonly used extraction methods use CO2 or ethanol. While any company can claim they use safe extraction methods, the batch test results allow you the opportunity to confirm that your CBD is solvent-free.
Confirming that Products are Free from Microbial Contamination
Potentially harmful microbes are everywhere, in our water, soil, on our bodies, everywhere. Microbes are bacteria that can cause disease, illness, or fermentation. Potential problems can occur when unsafe food handling practices create situations where microbial contaminants can thrive. Viewing the batch test results can help assure you that your CBD product is cleared for consumption.
Verifying the Quality of Your CBD Oil with CBDistillery
Since there are so many variables to consider in the creation of quality hemp oil products, checking random product samples does little to ensure consistent product quality.
As a leader in the hemp industry, CBDistillery was one of the first companies to provide consumers with access to the third-party test results of every product offered.
Our products are tested by the leading cannabis accredited, independent, third-party laboratory to ensure each and every one of our products meets every required quality and safety standard set forth by our state and the Colorado Department of Agriculture.

Understanding the Combined Potential of CBD-Infused Coffee
Double-shot, single-shot, iced, latte or foamed, as a nation, we are drinking more specialty coffee than ever before. It often seems you can’t navigate a single city block without encountering at least one busy barista grinding, steaming, and measuring their way through endless lines of dedicated patrons.
Whether you prefer your natural pick-me-up, home-brewed, bottled, cold-brewed, or blended, you may have noticed the steady increase in the number of CBD-infused coffee-based beverages. For those with an interest in the many potential health and wellness benefits of hemp CBD, this growing trend seems to indicate that hemp CBD has found a significant level of acceptance within our once skeptical society.
While this level of public support for CBD is definitely encouraging, there are a few significant factors to keep in mind before paying top dollar for a CBD-infused coffee blend.
The Many Potential Health Benefits of CBD-Infused Beverages
Some who indulge in CBD-infused coffee drinks are attracted to the novelty, the apparent trendiness of the product. While it may seem that CBD-infused coffee is a recently discovered fad, many CBD enthusiasts have been adding CBD to their coffee, tea, and smoothies long before CBD-infused products were promoted on the menu boards of their favorite coffee house.
CBD is the non-psychoactive extract of the hemp plant. This natural supplement has the potential to mimic the messengers and influence the receptors of the complex communication network that regulates nearly every necessary function in your body, your endocannabinoid system.
It’s because of this ability to interact with your endocannabinoid system, and several significant non-endocannabinoid receptors, that CBD is shown to have so many seemingly non-related potential health and wellness benefits.
Now that you may be a bit more familiar with some of the latest buzz surrounding the popularity of CBD products, it’s likely easier to understand why so many people seem to be flocking to CBD-infused products, and why so many shop owners are happy to oblige.
Coffee Has Its Own Impressive List of Potential Health and Wellness Benefits
While some consider coffee consumption a vice that needs restriction, others wouldn’t even consider denying themselves a single steaming cup of caffeinated glory. Yes, overindulgence can have negative consequences, but research suggests that moderate coffee consumption provides significant potential health and wellness benefits of its own. Just a few of the reported benefits of coffee include:
Antioxidants – more people get an antioxidant boost from coffee than any other source
Enhancing cognitive abilities and short-term memory
Enhances energy and metabolism
Reducing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes
Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, including stroke and heart failure
Providing potential protection from Parkinson’s disease
Reducing the risk of some types or forms of cancer
Increasing longevity – moderate coffee consumption (2-4 daily cups) is linked to a longer life span
Some People are Quite Sensitive to the Effects of Caffeine
For better or worse, coffee contains a considerable amount of caffeine. Overindulgence has its consequences. While many of us feel more alert and focused after indulging in our favorite caffeinated confections, not everyone experiences a positive reaction to the stimulating effects of caffeine. Some people experience significant side effects from indulging in coffee, including:
Increased symptoms of anxiety
Feeling jittery or jumpy (increases cortisol production)
Indigestion or heartburn
Frequent urination (caffeine is a diuretic)
Difficulty sleeping or bouts of insomnia
The Combined Potential of CBD and Coffee
While there are several studies confirming that CBD and coffee both provide significant health and wellness benefits individually, many CBD enthusiasts find that combining the potential mood-regulating properties of CBD with their coffee balances the negative effects of caffeine.
Quite honestly, there has not been all that much research into the combined interactions of CBD and caffeine. The potential benefits of combining the two are largely based on anecdotal evidence, the experiences, and testimony of those who enjoy the potential effects of CBD-infused coffee.
CBD Should Be Added After Coffee Is Brewed
It’s important to realize that many coffee vendors willing to cash in on the increasing popularity of CBD may not know the ins and outs of working with CBD oil. If your coffee merchant is simply adding an insignificant amount of CBD to your coffee to increase their profits, they are not likely providing a product worthy of the price. Before paying top dollar for a CBD-infused coffee blend, consider the following:
Your barista (or product label) should be able to convey how many milligrams of CBD your coffee contains
Coffee containing less than 5-10 mg of CBD is unlikely to be worth the investment
CBD-infused coffee beans are not an effective method of providing CBD-infused coffee. CBD is separated from coffee beans during the brewing process
CBD should be added to coffee after brewing to provide any potential effects
Those who promote the benefits of CBD-infused coffee claim CBD reduces the caffeine-induced jitteriness of caffeinated beverages allowing coffee drinkers the alertness of caffeine without the adverse effects.
Sometimes the best way to know if something is right for you is to try it. When you add your own CBD to your favorite coffee-laden beverages, you have control over the amount of CBD your indulgence of choice contains and can be sure the CBD is added after brewing is complete.
Infusing Your Coffee with THC-Free Pure CBD Oil
If you are intrigued by the potential benefits of adding CBD to your coffee, you don’t need to pay steep coffee house prices. You can easily add CBD to your coffee, your coffee creamer, or any of your favorite recipes by investing in the versatility of our THC-Free Pure CBD Oil.
When you add Pure CBD Oil to your favorite coffee-laden beverages, you have full control over the amount of CBD your indulgence of choice contains and can be sure the CBD is added after brewing is complete. Consider the following benefits of this THC-free product:

After months of anticipation, news broke today that the 2018 Farm Bill has officially been signed by the House and Senate. The final step is for President Trump to sign off on the bill, changing the hemp-derived CBD industry overnight.
So what is the significance of this bill and what does it mean for consumers, businesses, and farmers? Here is a look at how the 2018 Farm Bill will change the industry for the better.
The Historical Evolution of Federal Control and the Development of the Farm Bill
Hemp cultivation has not always been a source of controversy. This hearty plant was once an agricultural staple. Hemp seeds and strong, durable hemp fibers were relied upon for numerous products. Early American settlers used hemp to make building materials, cloth, paper, rope, and canvas. During Colonial times, farmers were required to grow hemp, and several colonies used hemp as legal tender.
Until the enactment of the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act, cannabis plants were legal. It was during the government’s efforts to discourage marijuana use that hemp first became entangled in the crossfire. Some historians believe campaigns to generate public support for curtailing marijuana use intentionally blurred the lines between hemp and marijuana. Some believe hemp was deliberately “demonized” to eliminate hemp as a competing fuel source. While hemp and marijuana were understood to be entirely different plants, hemp farmers were subjected to heavy taxation that made hemp farming unsustainable.
It was the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 that (temporarily) sealed hemp’s fate. When the government classified cannabis as a schedule 1 drug, a substance with no accepted medical use, the order was written to cover cannabis, not marijuana specifically. Once the government included cannabis as a whole, it was no longer legal to grow hemp in the US without the consent of the US Drug Enforcement Agency.
The Significance of the Agricultural Act of 2014
For a long time, there was no legal differentiation between hemp and marijuana. To our government, cannabis was cannabis, whether psychoactive or not. The 2014 Farm Bill was a significant development for the hemp industry.Until the passing of this monumental legislation, hemp cultivation was banned in the United States, forcing manufacturers to rely on imports from Canada, Europe, and China. This bill provided the legal differentiation between hemp and marijuana based on their THC content. THC is the compound in cannabis responsible for marijuana’s psychoactive effects. The Agricultural Act of 2014 set the following parameters:
While hemp and marijuana are both cannabis plants, The Agricultural Act of 2014 defined hemp as a cannabis plant containing 0.3 percent THC or less. For reference, marijuana contains 5-30 percent THC. Under the terms of that definition, if a crop is grown containing more than 0.3 percent THC, it is considered marijuana and must be destroyed.
Our most recently enacted Farm Bill also opened the door for hemp cultivation by setting the parameters for hemp pilot programs. Today, the legality of hemp crops is left to the discretion of the state. Once a state has approved hemp farming, those interested in growing hemp can apply for approval with their State Department of Agriculture.
The 2018 Farm Bill Clears the Confusion Surrounding Hemp Products
While the 2014 Farm Bill left hemp farming decisions to state discretion, it did not remove hemp from the list of substances regulated by the federal government. The 2018 Farm Bill does. With federal restrictions lifted, hemp will be treated in the same manner as any other commodity. Just a few of the anticipated benefits of removing hemp from the list of controlled substances include:
As it stands, some people still question the legality of hemp and hemp-derived products because of hemp’s federal classification as a controlled substance. Provisions clearly separate the definition of hemp versus marijuana removing any potential grey areas. When the shades of grey resolve to black and white, there will be no more reason to debate, or explain, the legality of hemp in the US.
Ease of Conducting Business Transactions
Many CBD companies suddenly find themselves without access to a bank account or payment processor. This can happen when the bank determines that hemp products are legally questionable. With the legal clarity provided by the 2018 Farm Bill, product vendors will have better access to third-party processing, banking services, and investment opportunities.
Destigmatization of Hemp Products
There is still a stigma associated with hemp use. With the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill clearly recognizing the legality of hemp products, we believe much of the uneasiness some people experience when considering the use of hemp CBD will be resolved.
Federal Protection for Hemp Farmers
Although hemp crop legality varies by state, hemp farmers are not eligible for federal crop insurance. That’s because hemp is still not considered an agricultural crop. Once hemp is reclassified as an agricultural commodity, hemp farmers will be able to protect their investment from lost revenue caused by declining prices or natural disasters.
An Increase in hemp-derived CBD research
CBD is one of the many potentially beneficial cannabinoids found in cannabis extract. Hemp CBD provides all the potential health and wellness benefits as marijuana without the risk of intoxication. Prior to the Farm Bill, it was difficult for researchers to obtain funding for hemp oil research. By removing federal restrictions, researchers gain access to federally-funded research programs to further investigate the potential medicinal benefits of hemp oil.
The Economic Benefits of Federal Legalization
We believe that the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill will provide substantial economic benefits. As domestic hemp production increases, industries will no longer have to rely on imported hemp. Economic stimulation will continue as we welcome more hemp farmers, product manufacturers, business investors, and product consumers to our thriving community. Hemp products are anticipated to evolve into a 22 billion dollar industry by 2022.
CBDistillery has a mission to educate the public about the differences between hemp and marijuana, and the many potential benefits of CBD oil. With the 2018 Farm Bill passing, our mission has never been more important and ask our followers to help up educate others.

During your investigations of the many health and wellness benefits of CBD, you may have noticed that some people still question the legality of hemp oil. We understand the confusion.
Although hemp cultivation has not yet been legalized on the federal level, the legality of growing industrial hemp varies by state. It may ease your mind to learn that hemp products are not federally restricted. With the anticipation that the federal government may soon be legalizing hemp cultivation nationally, we thought it might be interesting to take a look at the history of hemp.
Differentiating Between the Cannabis Plants When Answering “Is Hemp Legal?”
Believed to be among the first domesticated crops, the cannabis plants hemp and marijuana were bred for entirely different purposes. Hemp was grown as a source of food and textiles; marijuana was selectively bred for medicinal and religious purposes. While the plants are related, they are not alike. Consider the following differences:
Marijuana Plants – Marijuana plants are short and bush-like. Marijuana plants prefer warmth and humidity, so they are typically grown in a climate-controlledenvironment. Marijuana has a 60-90 day growth cycle. While hemp and marijuana both contain the cannabinoid CBD in their extract, marijuana extract also contains a significant amount of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the cannabinoid responsible for the plant’s psychoactive properties.
Hemp Plants – Hemp plants are tall, thin, and weed-like. Hemp is a hearty plant that can grow in a variety of climates. The growth cycle of hemp spans 108-120 days. While marijuana contains high levels of THC, hemp does not. That’s why you will not be subjected to any type of intoxication from using hemp oil.
The Medicinal Value of the Plant Used for Textiles
Historians believe that ancient civilizations did not grow cannabis to get high, they recognized the value of the plant as an herbal medication. Since marijuana was bred for religious and medical use and hemp was cultivated for textiles, you may be just a bit surprised to learn that many ancient civilizations also used hemp medicinally.
The medicinal use of hemp dates back to Ancient China, 2737 BCE. Emperor Shen-Nung created a topical hemp product and used hemp oil to alleviate pain. His findings were documented in the first editions of the Pen Ts’ao Ching, the earliest Chinese materia medica book. Emperor Shen-Nung may be credited as the first to document the many potential benefits of hemp, but many others soon followed. Consider the following examples:
77 AD – In ancient Rome, Pliny the Elder noted hemp beneficial for pain relief and extracting insects from the ears
200 AD – Greek physician Galen of Pergamum also documented hemp as an effective method of pain relief
During the 16th century, Europeans used hemp for various purposes
Before the Civil War, hemp was used to treat the symptoms of various disorders
During the 19th century, the research of Dr. JR Reynolds mentioned the benefits of hemp
While the medicinal use of hemp had been documented throughout the ages, the popularity of medicinal hemp declined with the introduction of opiates and syringes. As medical treatments advanced, people seemed to have temporarily lost interest in using hemp products for health and wellness.
Hemp Was Once a Required Crop
Hemp fibers are durable, adaptable, and resistant to decay, making hemp the ideal fiber for making rope and canvas for travel by sea. Early Americans use hemp to make sails, cloth, and building materials. During Colonial times farmers were legally required to grow hemp crops. Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp. In at least three colonies, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, hemp was used as legal tender.
Until the 1930s, marijuana was legal, and hemp was in demand. Henry Ford was busy producing hemp fuel in Iron Mountain Michigan. With hemp increasingly perceived as an economic threat, competing industries began a smear campaign directly associating hemp with marijuana.
The Criminalization of Cannabis Plants
The 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was the first federal law enacted to criminalize marijuana. Although hemp and marijuana were still recognized individually, the marijuana tax act imposed strict regulations and high taxes on doctors who prescribed cannabis. Hemp farmers were subjected to hefty taxes and licensing regulations. The demands imposed on hemp farmers turned a once profitable crop into a poor investment.
It was the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 that dissolved the individual status of the two cannabis plants. With the passing of the Controlled Substance Act, hemp and marijuana were both classified as a schedule 1 drug. This classified the plants as drugs with no accepted medical use. Because of the new classification, hemp could no longer be grown in the US without a permit from the US Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
The Revival of Industrial Hemp
In 2013 hemp farming was legalized in the state of Colorado. Not long after, the Agricultural Act of 2014 (US Farm Bill) opened the doors for hemp research and pilot programs for hemp cultivation. Thanks to the Agricultural Act, hemp and marijuana are recognized as individual plants, defined by their THC content. To be classified as hemp a cannabis plant must contain 0.3 percent THC or less. At least 35 states have since legalized the cultivation of hemp. Just a few of the products made from industrial hemp include:
Hemp seeds, hemp flour, and hemp milk
Hemp oil supplements containing CBD
Breathable hemp fabrics, shoes, and bags
Skin care products
Paint and lubricants
Cording and canvas
Fiberboard and insulation
Biofuel and ethanol
Rope, twine, and concrete
The Agricultural Act of 2014 legally differentiated the two cannabis plants and opened the doors for the cultivation of industrial hemp; the bill does not legalize hemp at the federal level. Provisions in upcoming legislation request that hemp is removed from the list of substances controlled by the federal government. Removing hemp plants from the list of controlled substances would clear hemp for cultivation across all 50 states and allow hemp farmers to invest in crop insurance. If all goes well with floor votes in the House and Senate, the bill will soon be arriving on the President’s desk for his signature. For now, it appears that hemp prohibition is coming to an end.
While hemp has been widely recognized throughout history as a source of food and textiles, we had somehow forgotten through the years that hemp was also used for health and healing. It was the discovery of the endocannabinoid system that appears to have revived our interest.
Thanks to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system, we now understand why CBD has so many potential health and wellness benefits. The cannabinoids in hemp CBD influence key endocannabinoid receptors that regulate nearly every essential function of our bodies.
