Pure CBD Oil sounds so simple. You may ask yourself “Isn’t all CBD OIL Pure?”. The answer is Yes and No. Pure CBD Oil is a claim most companies advertise. They all contain Pure CBD but what about the oil?
We know that Cannabidiol (CBD) is an element of the cannabis plant and has generated a lot of interest in recent years. CBD works in the body on a molecular level through multiple molecular pathways. CBD works by passing through cell membranes with the help of fatty acid binding protein (FABP) and the fatty acid takes the CBD into the cell walls. The FABP assures better absorption of the CBD. This is where the oil comes in.

Aren’t They All Pure?
If you read the article you learned that CBD needs a fatty acid so it can break into the cell walls. So it’s the oil that allows the CBD to do it’s thing. Most any oil can be used. As you shop for CBD Oils read the ingredients. Does the oil have Sunflower Oil? Does it contain Olive Oil? One of the most popular oils these days is MCT oil. This is touted as being a healthy easily absorbed oil.
MCT oil (medium-chain triglycerides) is usually made from coconut or palm kernel oil. Both have MCT in them. In fact, you can buy 100% MCT oil or a mixture of MCT and LCT (Long-chain triglycerides). The way we get MCT oil from coconut or palm kernel oil is through a process called fractionation. This separates the MCT from the original oil and concentrates it. MCT has some health benefits and some nutritional value but full research has not been conducted on all the benefits or risks.
What I take from this is they use PURE coconut (which is a healthy PURE oil) or palm kernel oil (another natural PURE Oil), then they perform the fractionation process which extracts the pure part out and leaves the MCT part in. This process turns it into a synthetic, man-made processed oil. So this isn’t pure at all!
HempWorx to the Rescue!
HempWorx is the #1 selling CBD brand for a reason. Hempworx approach CBD with care, consciousness, and cutting-edge science every step of the way, leaving no room for error – or unnecessary ingredients.
- American-farmed hemp

So we know CBD comes from the Hemp plant’s stalks, leaves, and stems. Hemp Seed Oil comes from the seed of the Hemp Plant. HempWorx is one of few companies that chooses to use 100% hemp derived CBD and Oil. The Hemp Seed oil is extracted and not processed or fractionated. Although MCT oil has beneficial compounds, HempWorx chooses to use hemp seed oil as the carrier oil in their CBD tinctures so you’re getting a PURE hemp extract made from the entire plant.

Plus, every batch of our CBD products are tested for purity to validate the amount of CBD.

To be US Hemp Certified you must pass a third-party stringent audit. HempWorx proudly displays this certification on every bottle they sell.
