CBD From Oranges? How, May You ask?

We use a proprietary process called Cyclic Terpene Assembly that produces the pure, consistent, and stable CBD, which is free from THC, pesticides, and toxic impurities. This process combines terpenes from orange peels with olivetol under heat and pressure in the presence of a catalyst.  After minimal further processing with generally recognized as safe (GRAS) solvents, the result is crystalline CBD at purity and consistency difficult to match with cannabis or hemp-derived material.

The process of taking it from the natural inputs to our CBD guarantees no THC is ever present and ensures there are no other toxic byproducts that can be found present in most naturally derived CBD.

Everything that goes into the process is found in nature and everything that comes out of the process is found in nature.

What are Terpenes? 

You already know what terpenes are because you have experienced them all your life. Simply put, terpenes are what gives an orange its citrusy smell. They give pine trees their unique aroma. They’re even responsible for the relaxing effects in lavender. They are chemicals that determine how things smell.

Terpenes are common biosynthetic building blocks.

Bio-identical CBD

Peels CBD is chemically and molecularly identical (bio-identical) to CBD found in nature and therefore acts in the body in the exact same way, but without the risks associated with cannabis and hemp.

Both terms describe, in this case, a cannabinoid that has been made through synthesis and which is chemically and molecularly identical to the same cannabinoid found in nature.

Unmatched Taste and Aroma

There is no citrus aroma or flavor that carries through in the Pels CBD production process and there is no hemp or cannabis-related smells or taste either due to our CBD not being made from those sources. Our CBD is odorless and tasteless in its raw form. As a result, our CBD tincture has an unmatched citrus taste and aroma due to the addition of organic, natural citrus flavor and organic medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil (from coconut).

THC vs. CBD

CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products. Both CBD and THC work with receptors that release neurotransmitters in your brain. THC is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. It's what makes people feel "high." CBD, on the other hand, does not cause that high. Instead, it's thought to work with other elements in the body linked to feelings of well-being. Both have been clinically found to have different medicinal properties, with research indicating CBD being primarily useful for pain, inflammation, anxiety, and sleep issues.
