Our leading, proprietary products such as Iron Horse Organics Support Capsules and Iron Horse Organics Rescue Rub Concentrate 500 single origin hemp oil is a truly premium product, crafted using a high-end, gentle lipid extraction process with organic coconut oil. Lipid extraction yields the highest concentrations of healthy cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, CBN), terpenes, phytonutrients and all the other amazing compounds found in hemp. It’s full-spectrum goodness on turbo-charge loaded with naturally occurring antioxidants and nutrients. From cultivation to refinement, the entire process is controlled with only the highest of standards. The hemp used in our products is sustainably farmed using all-natural practices. We never use pesticides or herbicides. We believe that wellness starts at the earth’s ground level and it shows in the results people and pets get with our oils.
Using Lipid by extracting with organic coconut oil, we avoid the use of any harsh solvents in our process. We adhere to pharmaceutical-level protocols for pure plant essentials at every stage of the seed-to-oil process, from cultivation to extraction and handling to production. Our CBD oil (IHO) contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, omegas, waxes, phytonutrients and terpenes. The organic coconut oil in our product contains a high percentage of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), The bioavailability of CBD can be significantly increased when delivered in a lipid-based formulation. When delivered with lipids, cannabinoids can be absorbed through intestinal lymphatic transport. Lymphatic transport reduces loss to first pass metabolism by allowing lipophilic compounds (meaning compounds that are soluble in fat) such as cannabinoids to be absorbed directly through the intestinal wall. By passing through the intestinal wall, cannabinoids, such as CBD, enter the system before being metabolized in the liver. There have been many studies that explore the use of lipid delivery methods to increase the bioavailability of medicines, vitamins and nutrients. You can find many of these studies by searching here, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health
Full-spectrum hemp oil refers to when the pure oil extracted from hemp contains all the same cannabinoids and compounds found in the original hemp plant. Unlike isolated or synthetic cannabinoids, full-spectrum hemp oil contains an array of cannabinoids, as well as many essential vitamins and minerals, fatty acids, protein, chlorophyll, fiber, flavonoids, and terpenes. CBD makes up over 90% of the cannabinoid content in full-spectrum hemp oil.
Hemp oil also contains other cannabinoids the cannabinoid cannabidiolic acid (CBDa). In live hemp, CBDa is more abundant than CBD. Often times hemp oil will undergo a heating process called decarboxylation, which changes CBDa into CBD and offers those seeking the highest levels of CBD a more ideal product.
Other more major cannabinoids found in full-spectrum include cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found in Cannabis derived extracts.
*There is less than 0.03% to zero THC in Iron Horse Organics hemp derived extracts.
Extracted full-spectrum hemp oil also contains a wide list of naturally occurring vitamins and minerals. Present are vitamins A, C, and E., and well as B complex vitamins like riboflavin, thiamine, and niacin. Hemp oil is a heart-healthy source of all 20 amino acids, including the nine essential amino acids. The two primary essential fatty acids are — Omega 3 and Omega 6. Hemp oil is also a source of vitamins that are commonly not sufficiently present in many diets, including beta-carotene.
The health benefits of full-spectrum hemp go beyond it being a source of CBD. The array of cannabinoids and other natural constituents found in full-spectrum hemp oil work have been shown in studies to work together in what’s referred to as the “entourage effect.” The complex mix of cannabinoids, essential nutrients, protein, and healthy fats work synergistically; to encourage homeostasis and balance in our health.
Some researchers believe that hemp is more therapeutically beneficial when all the compounds found in the plant — including its a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavinoids — are administered together. The theory known as the entourage effect suggests that all of the various chemical compounds interact and work together synergistically to produce therapeutic benefits and regulatory effects.
Two other popular extraction methods using solvents such as ethanol and supercritical CO2 are used to produce other Iron Horse Organics high-quality hemp cbd oil extracts as well.
In the brain, endocannabinoids and their receptors play a fundamental role in regulating pleasure, memory, thinking, concentration, body movement, awareness of time, appetite, pain, sensory processing (taste, touch, smell, hearing, and sight), and brain development.
More research, trials, and studies are needed to fully understand the long-term effects and benefits of this potentially game-changing way of extraction methods in approaching treatments. These last few years in particular have been progressive in changing the perception of cannabidiol and highlighting its potential uses.
