Three Different Extraction Methods…

- One of the most popular extraction options is through a supercritical CO2 extraction. This produces a clean, concentrated final product with a full spectrum of cannabinoids. However, this process can be very expensive to use.
- One of the best methods is through a Rosin Press, used by Aloha Hemp CBD. This press only uses dried hemp. In addition, there are no other fillers added. This is by far one of the most potent and clean methods! Most importantly, this ensures for maximum benefits.

A Step-by-Step Guide
- First things first, not all CBD brands are created equal. However, some brands have different extraction methods and different strengths. A lot of brands have fillers in their tinctures. Synthetic fillers are not healthy for our bodies. So, before choosing a brand to trust, do some research ahead of time.
- A good rule of thumb is to start low and slowly increase drops until the desired results are met.
- CBD does have a shelf life of about 2-years. Always ensure to follow the proper storage instructions. In addition, look for brands that are sold in dark glass dropper bottles. Dark bottles will prolong the lifespan.

- Squeeze the pipette slowly. Allow it to fill with the appropriate dose. Make sure to listen to your body and what amount of drops is best!
- Squeeze the liquid into your mouth in order to receive the full benefit. It’s important to hold the drops under your tongue for 30-60 seconds. Look for a brand that has High-Quality Organic flavored CBD tinctures.
