OUR OILS

 

SOLVENT, ADDITIVE & PRESERVATIVE FREE

PlantEssence Cannabis Oils are all 100% organic. Unlike most cannabis oils suppliers in South Africa, we do not use solvents or alcohol in our extraction process. 

 

Our oils are the result of meticulous research, and proven formulas compiled by some of the world's leading universities extensively studying the medicinal benefits of cannabis and cannabis oil.

We use a total of 9 different strains of medical grade cannabis plants across our two different extractions, providing a broad spectrum of cannabinoids,trichomes and terpenes - all with powerful healing properties.

Our process focusses on 'whole plant' extraction commonly referred to in the industry as 'The Entourage Effect'.

 

This methodology is proving far more successful at treating a much wider array of ailments than cannabis oils that isolate just THC and CBD. 

OUR PLANTS

 

GROWN AS NATURE INTENDED

We use a total of 9 different strains of medical grade cannabis plants across our two different formulas.

All plants stem from seeds we import from a registered organic medical cannabis dispensary in the United States.

 

Our plants are grown in a pristine, mountainous region of Lesotho without the use of any pesticides or growth hormones. This is a critical, and often overlooked by customers when buying cannabis oil since cannabis cannot be soaked free of these harmful chemicals without jeopardising the healing terpenes and tri-chomes.

EXTRACTION PROCESS

 

NO SOLVENTS OR ALCOHOL

Combining imported CO2 technology, and industry specific software, we are able to produce a cannabis oil that is 100% organic, and very precise in the ratios of the various healing cannabinoids.

 

By means of a CO2 extraction method we are able to keep all terpenes and trichomes in tact. These are destroyed in other extraction methods as they require the cannabis plant to undergo long periods of exposure to heat for the purpose of trying to burn off either solvent or alcohol.

THE SCIENCE/BIOLOGY

 

THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

Every function in our bodies requires a specific balance of factors in order to perform optimally. When this balance is achieved, it’s referred to as homeostasis. The endogenous cannabinoid, or endocannabinoid system (ECS), plays a major role in survival by helping to maintain homeostasis in fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals (including humans).

 

Because our bodies already use cannabinoid molecules to regulate many functions, we’re inherently endowed with many targets the cannabis plant can activate. Phytocannabinoids (plant-derived cannabinoids) are compounds that are unique to the cannabis plant, produced by trichomes on its surface.

 

Most ailments are the result of a lack of cannabinoids being produced naturally due to damaged CB1 or CB2 receptors within the ECS. By ingesting a good quality organic cannabis oil we boost the cannabinoid activity which results in the repairing of the damaged receptors and ultimately the achievement of homeostasis.
