CBD Oil FAQ

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Supplements,

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a largely legal hemp oil made from high-CBD and low-THC hemp plants. Due to the low traces of THC, CBD oil products are non-psychoactive, allowing users to gain the health benefits of cannabis without the associated high.

CBD is one of many extractable phytocannabinoids that can be derived from the hemp plant. Other phytocannabinoids include CBC, CBG, AND CBN oil which all come with their own unique set of medical and health benefits.

How is hemp different than marijuana?

CBD extracted from the hemp plant, which is the same plant that is used in the production of marijuana – cannabis sativa. The main difference between hemp and marijuana is the purpose for which they are grown. The hemp that is used in CBD is intentionally grown to have high levels of CBD and low levels of THC whereas marijuana is grown to have high levels of THC – the chemical that gives users a high feeling.

Hemp is grown all over the world, and its health benefits have been documented for centuries. The plant is grown easily in most climates meaning that the oil can be produced in mass quantities with little worry of ever running out of the product, unlike some of the ingredients that are used in the production of prescription drugs. Alternative treatments are being increasingly considered by people with health problems as the cost of prescription drugs continues to rise and their benefits are disproven.  A natural choice could be the right choice for you.

What are the health benefits of CBD?

CBD has been used successfully to treat eating disorders, chronic pain, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, neurological disorders, epilepsy, migraines, glaucoma, osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, hypertension, many types of cancer, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, clinical depression, and chronic and acute anxiety. For those that are not diagnosed with a disease or illness, the CBD can still be used as a mild relaxant due to its calming and soothing quality.

How do your CBD products differ than others?

Our CBD products are carefully extracted from hemp grown in the United States by farmers that care about where and how their plants are cultivated and treated from harvest to sale. Using sustainable farming technique and the whole hemp plant, the farmers are able to guarantee the least wasteful and most environmentally friendly process for cultivating hemp. Not only that, the grow techniques including prevention of pests are all natural. On their farms, organic practices like using insects to pollinate and mushrooms to fertilize keep the plants fresh and free of pesticides. They also use full-tilling to keep soil at optimal levels and prevent erosion of the land.

The type of hemp plants used to produce Kono Naturals products were created specifically to have low THC, and high cannabidiol. Hemp, which is sometimes associated with the industrial production of goods, is a different variety of the same plant that produces the marijuana which is cultivated to have high levels of THC.

Each batch of Kono Naturals cannabidiol is independently tested in a laboratory to ensure the purest quality oil, determine potency levels of various compounds, and to guarantee the absence of any additional chemicals or solvents.

For orders or scheduling, please call our office at 407-682-7111.  Existing patients may request a CBD product/dosage recommendation from their provider.  New patients may schedule a 30-minute CBD consultation with Lisa to receive a customized recommendation.

A Letter Regarding Supplements from Xymogen's Founder and CEO

Written by Lisa Beaury. Posted in Supplements,

Company News & Developments

View Email In Browser 

XYMOGEN

Dear Valued Customer,

I am writing you in response to the New York AG investigation of herbal supplements sold at retail outlets (GNC, Walgreens, Walmart, and Target).

While time will tell if the accusations against these companies are valid, I want to reassure you of the quality of XYMOGEN's Exclusive Professional Formulas. The facts are:

1. As required by FDA GMP's, each and every raw material received into our facility is tested for identity. Identity testing is simply confirming that the raw material is indeed what it says it is on the raw material's labeling. Most identity testing is conducted via Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometers (FTIR) or Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC).

2. All FTIR identity testing is performed in-house, at XYMOGEN's state-of-the-art analytical laboratory. All TLC identity testing is performed by two of XYMOGEN's qualified third-party laboratories, Alkemist Labs and Advanced Botanical Consulting & Testing. These two companies are arguably the most reputable labs in the industry for the identification of botanical ingredients.

3. In addition to finished product certificates of analyses (COAs), customers may also request COAs on raw material identity testing for any raw material in a given finished product lot.

4. In assuring the purity, strength, and composition of all XYMOGEN formulas, each finished product has the following performed prior to releasing for distribution:

  • Label Claim Verification - Each active ingredient is verified to be no less than 100% of the amount claimed on the label.
  • Microorganisms - Must meet United States Pharmacopeia (USP), American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), and/or National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) acceptance criteria for dietary supplements.
  • Heavy Metals - Most products are required to meet USP acceptance criteria for dietary supplements. Where feasible, others must meet California's Proposition 65 safe harbor levels.
  • Physical Characteristics - Capsule/tablet weight average and weight variation, disintegration, organoleptic testing, scoop testing, etc.
  • Reasonably Anticipated Contaminants - In certain finished products, XYMOGEN will test for contaminants that have a slight possibility of ending up in the product. For example, due to the processing of pea protein and our assurance that all of our functional foods are gluten free, we test each and every lot for gluten to confirm it meets the FDA's recently finalized definition for "gluten free."

This level of testing IS NOT THE NORM in the nutraceutical field. The testing goes BEYOND FDA REQUIREMENTS. As mentioned above, customers are free to request a COA for any lot of finished product at any time. In addition to this, and in conjunction with XYMOGEN's ePedigree Track & Trace Program, we will be looking into ways to make these COAs even more accessible. The opportunity to view the actual test results provides an unprecedented level of documented quality assurance direct to your patients.

Thank you as always for your continued support and friendship.

Sincerely,

Brian Blackburn
XYMOGEN Founder & CEO
