*Certified Organic

CBD

Liquid Lullaby is activated with 750mg of Hemp Extract. We offer two varieties of Hemp Extract, (i) Full Spectrum Hemp Extract and (ii) CBD Isolate. We recommend the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract for overall health benefits and to experience the full range of cannabinoids. We recommend the CBD Isolate to those needing to take a drug test, as the CBD Isolate has 0% THC. 

Our Hemp Extract is sourced from Blue Forest Farms, a 150 acre farm in Longmont, Colorado. With over 40 years of combined organic farming and extraction experience, their team of farmers, botanists and extraction professionals understand what it takes to deliver exceptional hemp products. From the start, we were impressed by Blue Forest Farms for their commitment to quality, transparency, and sustainable practices. 

The Hemp Extract that we source from them is organic and free of pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and solvents. It is extracted using CO2 Supercritical extraction 

MCT Oil

We use MCT Oil as the carrier oil for the CBD for its superiority as a carrier oil to maximize the bioavailability of CBD. 

MCT, or Medium chain triglycerides, are a form of saturated fatty acids that have six to ten carbons. Translucent and tasteless, MCT oil is a type of oil made up of one or more of these MCTs.

While CBD by itself can be absorbed, it is done so much more efficiently when it is ingested along with a carrier oil. Since cannabinoids (like CBD and THC) from the cannabis plant are fat-soluble (meaning they dissolve in oil rather than water), infusing them in a saturated fat enhances their bioavailability drastically.

Coconut oil is pretty much the perfect carrier oil for CBD because of its saturated fat content. But don’t worry; since the saturated fat content of coconut oil is composed largely of medium chain triglycerides (MCT’s) instead of long chain triglycerides (LGT’s), you don’t have to worry about it clogging up your arteries.

We source our MCT Oil from a distributor in Ohio. Their coconuts are derived from Indonesia. The MCT Oil is derived from Coconut Palm Kernel. The extraction method is Expeller Pressed. 

Grape Seed Oil

Grape Seed is produced during winemaking. Oil from Grape Seed is extracted from its seeds with an organic solvent. Not only does grape seed oil enhance the flavor of Liquid Lullaby, but grape seed oil also adds numerous health benefits: it works as an antioxidant, it has anti-inflammatory properties, and it acts in cell cycle modulation.

Our grape seed oil us sourced from Italy, using Grape Seeds, and solvent extracted. Our distributor is based in Ohio.

Valerian Root

Valerian Root has been used for centuries to promote relaxation and restful sleep. Valerian is thought to enhance the signaling of one of the main sedative neurotransmitters, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

Our Valerian Root is grown in the US and extracted from the fresh (never dried) root and rhizome of Certified Organic Valeriana officinalis plants. The rhizome & root are harvested in autumn and are then promptly extracted while still fresh and succulent.

The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant.

Passionflower

Passionflower is known to promote calm and relaxation and also provides support for mild and occasional anxiety. Passionflower affects GABA(a) and (c) subunits (source). 

Our Passionflower is grown in the USA and extracted from the flowering herb (leaf, flower & succulent stem) of Certified Organic Passiflora incarnata vines. The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant.

Lavender

Lavender has traditionally been used for calming support of the nervous system and to soothe occasional anxiety. Our lavender extract is from the flower of Certified Organic Lavandula angustifolia shrubs grown in their natural habitat of Provence, France. Familiar and aromatic, the herb is native to Mediterranean climates.

The herb is extracted in small batches with Certified Organic cane alcohol for potency and to maintain the balance of phytochemicals as they exist in the plant.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E TPGS, the water-soluble Natural Vitamin E (D-Alpha-Tocopheryl Polyethylene Glycol Succinate, TPGS), is a derivation of natural Vitamin E. It is an esterification form of natural Vitamin E Acid Succinate and Polyethylene Glycol. We use this form of Vitamin E to lengthen the circulation time of CBD and maximize the bioavailability of Liquid Lullaby so that you can receive maximum benefits.
