Here is the argument for conventional oils. Many of these companies say that if the oils are organic they don't have to produce as much oil as the growing conditions and soil are so pure that it is easy for the plants to survive without using pesticides and herbacides. These protective essential oils are made to protect the plants but if they grow stress free then that has to be considered. The tests they run with conventional oils often show they are more concentrated through the tests they do.
The conventional companies also claim that the extraction process evaporates all the pesticides in the oil, similar to a water distiller taking out all the impurities out of water. Since the pesticides have a larger cluster size, they do not evaporate like the oils. If you ask them, they have all told me that even though they used pesticides, none of them are in the oils after they are distilled.
For people who want to avoid any pesticides, this is usually not the problem with conventional oils, it can be the growing conditions and harvesting at non peak times. Some harvests have gotten twice as much sun and others no where nearly as much. What's important for most people is getting the brand with the most therapeutic value. Some have a stronger genetic structure than others grown in not so good conditions but on the labels, they all say the same thing.
The only way to really know is to test the oils before you open them so you don't have to get stuck with an oil that you don't like after you open it. One brand can be your favorite but all they might have left is a late harvest while another brand might have the same species of oil but grown in peak season. I have two competitor brands of CBD oil and last year I liked the other brand and this year I like their competitor brand. I test every oil for the strongest feeling I get. Many people just stick with one brand and never realize what is possible.
Warning: Low cost oils typically have an low shelf life due to its very low number of constituents. The more terpenes and constituents in it the way the plant was grown the more organic compounds it usually has. Conventional oil is fine as long as I know I'm not getting all the therapeutic constituents.
There is no need to really buy the super expensive cbd oils unless you need those extra properties they give. It was hard for me to tell which brand was more therapeutic and pure when all the companies say they are pure and full spectrum when in actuality they are not.
The bottom line is that Mother Nature is still more advanced than Man’s Scientific knowledge. For example, Science still doesn’t know how some minerals end up in the plants because they can’t find traces of it in the soil. Like how does Calcium end up in plants when no calcium is found in the soil!? There are very complex bio alchemical processes that Biologists and Chemists can reconcile through traditional understanding of the laws, principles, and theories.
So when Man messes with the soil, messes with the growing cycles, uses artificial lighting, and messes with all sorts of different aspects, then we have plants and raw materials that are very different than something that just grew in the the natural sun that didn't use fertilizers.
One of the main things that is effected by Man’s meddling is potency and spectrum of constituents in the resulting oil. For example, most farmers who sell to the oil extracting companies are trying to get the biggest yield possible. In general the soil is not alive and has a very low Cation exchange (wikipedia it), low thermophilic content, which yields plants that do not have a vibrant energy potential in their cells (consequentially the oil is low voltage potential and has a weak self organizing homeostatic response on the immune system…lower grade cbd oils can even have an Entropic effect on the human body!)
The plants have weak immune systems also from not having to defend themselves as much against environmental issues like pests. Plants that grow in the wild have adapted to their surroundings and they do this by self organizing a robust innate informed intelligence that is carried on the epigenetics of their DNA generation after generation which provides the morphic informational fields translation through their nervous systems (yes plants have a form of nervous system). The more coherent intelligence a plant carries into the biophysical level, the more complex is their constituent matrix as well as the biophotonic healing capacity to ultimately restore the human adaptation response potential, functionality, coherence, and structural integrity when the oils are used therapeutically.
Traditional farming practices with their transplanting a species to a different environmental setting (with less harsh environments more stability = higher yields, using fertilizers, cultivating hybrids or certain plant’s seeds for their higher oil output, as well as the collective consciousness of the farmers and handlers themselves, all alter a plant and continue to adversely change it from its state when it naturally grows in the wild on it’s own.
Note: European hemp may not be labeled as organic but it has stricter standards for farming and no use of pesticides than any organic brand in the states. As long as European CBD is taken care of after the extraction and companies aren't lying about their terpenes, it should be fine. There are a few exceptions but for the most part, I prefer CBD from Colorado grown and CBD from Europe.
Take my CBD Quiz and I will pick out the best brand based on the answers you choose. If you want samples of the brand that I recommend let me know. Don't worry, it's totally free. I'm happy to share samples for anything that is doing a review.
This is so bs.. organicly grown hemp.
Note: hemp doesn't need to be sprayed. It is loaded with so many terpenes that bugs won't even touch it. The only thing that I hear that eats at the expense of CBD are the lady bugs that eat at the flowers. But, the problem I have is when they put fertilizers to grow the hemp too fast that wouldn't naturally grow that fast in the sun.
When going to the enormous hemf field I see grasshoppers and other insects everywhere but I do not see them eating the hemp. It's not like tomatoes or apples where you gotta spray them so worms won't get into it. More important than trying to confuse someone that theirs is better because they don't spray pesticides on their hemp fields is how depleted their soil is.
