CBD-RSO (Cannabidiol Rick Simpon Oil) -> Full Spectrum
Cannaliz products are prepared according to a method inspired from the so called “RSO (Rick Simpson Oil)“, produced in our labs at cannaxtract; in our case, as we use CBD rich material, our extractions then contain mainly CBD. Some people say RSO should be high in THC; it is the case when the material used is high in THC. We use food grade 100% pure ethanol as a solvent, which is made made from corn and prepared in Switzerland by alcosuisse. In the end, according to lab tests, it is possible to know how much CBD and other cannabinoids are inside the products, and therefore guarantee with a very small error margin the % announced on the label. RSO makes it possible to have a Full Spectrum extraction, without have to add nor remove any components.
Alternatives: other products on the market are the result of extraction made with: butane, isopropyl alcohol, hexane, or CO2. extraction can also be done with olive or coconut oil.
Raw, dark brown products = plant “totum”
Cannaliz provides the natural equilibrium offered by the plant; the most powerful molecule is not always the most present one (1 gram of limonene do not smell as strong as 1gram of Pinene, Linalool, Myrcene, Caryphylene, or Humulene). 20% CBD is maybe not as powerful without 1% THC or 0.1% Pinene. There are some many components that it is impossible to really know what is active or not, due to interaction with another molecule or not.
totum means “all” in latin. In order to keep it all, no fractioning is made to isolate any of the extracted material; but keeping the original ratio provided by the plant; this means all our products contain a little bit of THC, natural terpenes and essential oils, little bit of chlorophyll (low extraction temperatures reduce at the time of the extraction the quantity of chlorophyll extracted), fats and waxes.
It is not our role to say which product is better; our role is to tell you how it made. Many announce that what they produce works together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Cannaliz leaves it the the original mix present in the plant; of course a little concentrated/focused around cannabinoids (cellulose/fibre being left apart to make clothing or to be composed back to the production chain), and mainly up to you to decide what suits you best.
Alternatives: purified oils, crystals (99% CBD), synthetic CBD, all especially suited if you are looking for isolated components
