The 15% raw CBD oil by Endoca is a pure hemp extract with a twist. Instead of the standard heating process most CBD extracts go through before arriving on the shelves (a process called decarboxylation), their raw extracts are not heated, thanks to a CO2-extraction method that allows them to extract all the vital plant compounds like cannabinoids, flavanoids and terpenes without decarboxylating (heating) the extract. This means all the beneficial compounds that exist in the raw plant are retained, which to Endoca is extremely important, and is why its raw extracts are its most popular product by far.
Many beneficial compounds in fruits and vegetables are delicate, and can be destroyed by heating. Just as cooking vegetables can cause them to lose nutrients, when you heat the hemp plant, certain compounds either change or are lost, such as the elusive CBDa that converts to CBD when heated. This is why Endoca has created two lines of hemp extracts, the first being the standard decarb line of CBD extracts, and the second being its raw range, which contains CBD and CBDa, as well as other nutritious plant compounds found in unprocessed hemp.
Some consumers can find the raw extracts too stimulating; in such cases, they should be taken well before bed, or swapped for decarb products in the evening, as many find the heated version more calming and relaxing. This shows just how delicate and diverse the hemp plant is, and proves that more research into the cannabis compounds it produces means more potentially incredible discoveries.
Ultimately, CBD extracts vary from person to person; the most important part is starting low and slow, and listening to your body.
