What is CBD?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally-occurring constituent of industrial hemp (cannabis sativa) plants. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis and is being scientifically investigated for numerous reasons. Most people have heard of a cannabinoid called THC, which is the ingredient in cannabis that gets users high. Unlike THC, CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and does not cause a high.
What’s the difference between CBD from hemp and CBD from marijuana?
Both hemp and marijuana are from the same genus and species (cannabis sativa). The characteristic of having low THC is the single difference that most rely on to distinguish industrial hemp from marijuana. CBD taken from hemp and marijuana is the exact same compound.
How do I consume CBD?
The CBD oil we offer has a couple different applications. You can hold a sublingual dose under the tongue for 30-60 seconds (recommended for fastest absorption), apply the oil topically to your skin (can be applied directly to a problem area or mixed with your favorite moisturizer), or blend the oil in a health-conscious smoothie. We will include further dosing instructions with the product.
Will CBD help my condition?
Due to federal regulations, we cannot make claims about whether or not natural CBD hemp oil can help with specific ailments. We do however urge everyone to research the widely available information online. You can easily find many resources about CBD hemp oil and its possible benefits.
How do you extract the CBD and other cannabinoids from the raw plant material?
We use green extraction methods that utilize CO2, which leaves behind no toxins, heavy metals, or chemicals to degrade the product in any way. CO2 is safe to use in food products and commonly found in carbonated beverages, and our bodies even produce CO2 when we breathe!
What type of CO2 extraction do you use?
We use a combination of both Subcritical and Supercritical extractions. This allows us to perform a “fractional extraction” by first extracting at lower pressures to remove the lighter, temperature-sensitive volatile oils, and then subsequently extracting the same material at a higher pressure to remove the remaining oils. This approach is the best because it allows us to extract a complete range of cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and other beneficial phytochemicals that yield a more potent blend.

What Makes Mary’s Nutritionals Different?
Novel use of plant nutrients – Whole-plant hemp extract is a combination of the most prevalent therapeutic, activated compounds in the hemp plant. Preclinical trials over the past four decades have found that cannabinoids, like those found in hemp extract, show potential to be a natural anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, neuroprotectant, antidepressant, and many other benefits. Bringing modern technology and horticulture together, Mary’s is transforming how people view and utilize hemp by developing products that maximize the benefits of natural plant nutrients and ultimately offer reliable and effective relief.
Clean delivery methods – As the developer of the first transdermal patch enriched with activated hemp extract, patented transdermal gel pen technology and award-winning topicals, Mary’s believes in the effectiveness of clean delivery methods. There’s a wide array of benefits of transdermal and topical applications such as the elimination of smoking, bypassing first-pass metabolism (from oral administration), dose control, continued release, convenience, ease of use and systemic effects.
Transdermal: relating to, being, or supplying a remedy in a form for absorption through the skin into the bloodstream.
Topical: designed for or involving local application and action (as on the body).
The key difference between the two delivery methods is that transdermal refers to the nutrients reaching the bloodstream where it will have a systemic impact, while topical refers to the nutrients acting locally. Transdermal delivery is designed to act on the entire body via application to the skin and topical application is more spot-specific and designed to act in the area of application.
100% organic U.S. grown plants – Mary’s activated hemp extract is sourced from its longstanding partner Elite Botanicals based in Loveland, Colorado.
Elite Botanicals cultivates its industrial hemp plants in strict compliance with Colorado’s Industrial Hemp Act using organic farming principles to ensure clean products free of harmful chemicals, solvents, heavy metals and pesticides unlike hemp materials sourced from overseas.
In-house quality control laboratory – On-site chemists oversee testing of all raw materials, extracts, and final products, which are held to exacting standards of purity and consistency. Paving the way, Mary’s was the first Colorado hemp product manufacturer to acquire in-house Ultra High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) testing equipment and the staff to support it. In 2018, Mary’s will obtain a Gas Chromatograph-Mass Spectrometer (GC-MS) to expand its in-house testing capabilities, support ongoing research efforts, as well as contribute to the optimization of the current product suite and the development of novel offerings.
Patient-first mentality – Perhaps the most distinguishing characteristic is our unwavering commitment to everyone who uses Mary’s products. We are proud and humbled by each and every story, each and every person, for whom our products offer comfort and relief.
What makes our hemp different?
Our industrial hemp-derived products are produced from 100% organic plants grown on Elite Botanicals farm in Loveland, Colorado. The full-spectrum hemp extract used in our products is extracted from flower and not from seeds, which results in higher potency and better quality. A lot of other hemp-derived products sold in the US today are sourced from overseas and do not meet the same standards as we hold ourselves to.
Where is Mary’s hemp sourced from? How is it classified?
Mary’s hemp extract is derived from 100% organic industrial hemp plants grown in full compliance with the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s industrial hemp program. Since these plants contain significantly less than 0.3% THC, they are classified as industrial hemp under federal and state law.
Do you test your products?
All Mary’s Nutritionals processes and products are tested internally with an in-house quality control laboratory overseen by Dr. Jeremy Riggle. Testing is conducted on all raw materials, extracts and final products, which are held to exacting standards of purity and consistency. Mary’s also works with independent quality control labs for third party validation of the quality of all final products. Test results are always available upon request.
All CBD oil is not created equal and its effectiveness is not determined by a pretty label or cool marketing slogan. Receptra takes pride in providing “Full Spectrum” CBD to our customers, friends, and family. Full Spectrum is the concept of using whole plant cannabinoid compounds instead of extracting out one individual molecule.
The cannabis plant contains over 100 identified cannabinoids and hundreds of additional plant compounds. Most of these have therapeutic benefits of their own. When combined synergistically with one another the benefits of these compounds are heightened, including the benefits of CBD. Together, they are scientifically shown to achieve a greater degree of wellness.
The hemp plant is considered a “bioaccumulator”. It is capable of absorbing both good and bad from the air, water, and soil. Knowing where and how a company’s hemp is grown is important.
Each of our hemp plants are cultivated on-site and carefully hand-planted by experienced farmers who understand the intricacies of the plant. Our family-owned farms are located in a fertile Colorado valley that was once a mecca for agricultural production absent the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Ladybugs have served as a consistent form of natural pest control in the Receptra hemp fields. Our plants are primarily rain irrigated and there are no chemicals used during the planting, growing or harvesting processes.
We could certainly tell you how great Receptra Pure Hemp CBD oil is, but wouldn’t it sound better coming from someone else? We provide third-party verified testing on all of our CBD oil batches. That way you don’t have to take our word for it.
Receptra goes above and beyond industry standards for transparency. This is one of the many reasons to choose Receptra Naturals CBD. Unlike other CBD companies, we also provide an Interactive Certificate of Analysis for every single batch of CBD oil. Each bottle leaves the Receptra in-house laboratory with a little green sticker displaying a batch number. That number can be entered on our website and linked to information on what is in your specific bottle. Consistency is important, but no two plants are exactly the same and we want you to have all the facts.
Our company is our company. We do not use “white label” products, which are essentially someone else’s CBD oil with a different name on it. There are numerous products out there that are all the same but marketed as different brands. Receptra Naturals is proud to be a vertically integrated, family-owned business!
One of the reasons to choose Receptra Naturals CBD is that we know our product from the time the seed is planted to the moment the shipping label is printed. Receptra pure hemp CBD is hand harvested by our own farmers. It is then processed by our in-house chemist, in our laboratory right outside Denver. The final product is labeled and shipped out by our warehouse technicians. It is our product every step of the way.
CBD oil is a product that can inspire a lot of questions about use, effectiveness, serving size and more. Our knowledgeable team of customer service professionals is passionate about the products we produce and excited to answer your questions. They do not hide out in the back office hoping the phone won’t ring. Our team is easily accessible via phone or email and happy to help people on their health and wellness journey.
