Rogue Bear Farms formulate, blend, and bottle all of our hemp extracts with 100% organic carrier oils to make fresh consumable oil tinctures which they oversee from seed to final product. Their CBD and CBG Oils both originate as industrial hemp plants, and as we’ll see, they’re very similar to each other in composition. Hemp, a strain of cannabis sativa that’s high in CBD and low in THC, is carefully processed and refined until only Full Spectrum extract is left, and this is what goes into creating these effective oils.
Both CBD and CBG are part of a larger group of chemical compounds called cannabinoids. These cannabinoids can be found within the trichomes or resin glands of cannabis plants, and in order to get to them, Rogue Bear Farms employs a sophisticated ethanol, environmentally friendly extraction method.
Although we also sell a CBD Isolate powder, both of our CBG and CBD Oil Tinctures are Full Spectrum. That means that during the extraction process, Rogue Bear preserves all the naturally occurring compounds found within their hemp plants. In doing so, we are helping to create an ‘entourage effect’ – the idea that these compounds work better together to create a synergistic experience.
The Difference between Our CBD and CBG Tinctures
All of the cannabinoids present in cannabis are derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is the acidic form of CBG. The plants start out with CBGA and CBG compounds, and as hemp plants develop and mature, CBG gets converted into the other, more commonly known cannabinoids like CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol). So when people refer to CBG as the ‘Mother of Cannabinoids’ they’re not overstretching the mark!
Rogue Bear Farms’ CBG is extracted from a strain of industrial hemp – sourced from the world’s leading cannabis breeding company, Oregon CBD Seeds – that is naturally high in the compound. We then ensure to harvest these plants at the ideal time in order to preserve the highest amounts of CBG. We also source our CBD from Oregon CBD Seeds, of which they provide several different plant strains.
CBD and CBG Carrier Oils
Once our CBD and CBG is extracted, we then mix these extracts with carrier oils. A carrier oil,also known as a base oil, is a fatty oil that helps your body digest whichever essential oil the carrier oil is, well, carrying.
Rogue Bear’s hemp extracts are suspended in a combination of 100% Organic Sunflower Oil and 100% Organic Hempseed Oil to ensure simple, clean, easily digestible purity in every single drop.
Not only do we ensure that their Hemp extracts are of the absolute highest quality, we also hold our carrier oils up to the same rigorous standards. There’s a good reason for this – carrier oils offer another excellent opportunity to deliver all kinds of benefits at the same time you enjoy the many benefits of the cannabinoids you know and love.
Rogue Bear Farms use a mixture of organic sunflower and organic hemp seed oils to carry our cannabinoids. Sunflower Oil is packed with Vitamin E – an effective antioxidant that can promote the health of our cells, tissues, and organs, Vitamin E may also boost the immune system. Hemp Seed Oil moreover contains a large amount of nutrients, including minerals (such as magnesium, calcium, iron, and zinc), healthy proteins, Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s), and antioxidants.
