PurO3 Full Spectrum Relief Balm is a mixture of organic beeswax, organic cocoa butter, and organic shea butter for the base, and is enhanced with 550mg of full spectrum hemp oil (approx.90% cbd) suspended in MCT oil. This full spectrum hemp oil is full of natural ingredients which can help fight pain and inflammation. Organic herb extracts were also added to enhance the product:
- Calendula flower – used by many cultures throughout history on wounds to promote healing due in part to its natural antiseptic properties
- St. John's Wort – commonly used topically for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits
- Arnica – helps relieve pain related to sprains, muscle pain, and other inflammation
- Comfrey root – contains allantoin which promotes cell formation
Our full spectrum hemp oil is extracted from organic industrial hemp, using the pharmaceutical-grade ethanol process to distill the active ingredients. This is further refined into our full spectrum hemp extract which provides a wide-range of beneficial phytonutrients. These have been shown to provide a range of benefits to those seeking a more natural alternative to aid in addressing a number of issues.
By using this advanced process of ethanol distillation of the hemp plant, we are able to give a product that is safe, effective, and completely non-psychoactive. Ethanol distillation allows us to filter out the majority of non-active ingredients like chlorophyll and plant matter, but also selectively extract the active ingredients of the plant. We can pack in as many medicinal ingredients as possible without THC, ensuring the highest quality for full spectrum hemp oil.
Alcohol Extracts vs CO2 Extracts
There are many differences between the extracts of carbon dioxide and alcohol involving polarity, bio-availability and ester formation. Carbon dioxide is a liquid gas and only extracts the non-polar chemicals of a plant. Alcohol is a solvent that is made due to plant fermentation and is a by product of plants themselves. It is a solvent made by the plants for the plants. Alcohol is also the only solvent that maintains the original chemical ratios contained in the plant. This is due to alcohol extracting both water soluble and oil soluble components.
The use of carbon dioxide results in a very limited extraction of the plant. Since the extracts of carbon dioxide are non-polar; carbon dioxide extracts are not water-soluble. This plays a vital role in bio-availability. Since our bodies are 70% water, oils must be digested by different acids and enzymes to become active. During this digestion process, the active ingredients of the oils are degraded. CO2 extraction thus misses many valuable compounds that are hidden in hemp.
Since alcohol is both non-polar and polar, it can dissolve a much wider range of molecules that includes almost all of the plants medicinal oils, polysaccharides, carboxylic acids and other beneficial chemicals. In other words, alcohol dissolves both water and oil soluble chemicals found in the plant while carbon dioxide can only dissolve the oil soluble chemicals. In terms of keeping the plant whole and together, alcohol is the only solvent for the job.
Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble.
