CBDa is a compound that can be converted into CBD through decarboxylation, which typically occurs when heat is applied to the product. When heat is applied to CBDa (inactive), it is then converted into CBD (active). The hemp plant mostly contains CBDa, although you will see small amounts of CBD on a potency test. Total CBD represents the percentage of CBD after the CBDa has been decarboxylated. We use the following equation to equate Total CBD: Total CBD=((0.877)*CBDa)+CBD CBD is lighter than CBDa, 87.7% of the molecular weight to be exact. We use this calculation of converted CBDa into CBD and add in the already active CBD from the plant. This gives our customers a more accurate representation of the theoretical amount of CBD that will be in their product post-decarboxylation. This is the same calculation used in third-party labs across the U.S.
Yep! This is totally normal. Industrial hemp is an agricultural product and just like any produce, it comes from seed. Seed mitigation starts with genetics. There are a few methods that farmers can use to try to keep seed low in their flower, one of which is growing from clones. Clones are made from cuttings from a proven “mother plant” that are then planted in the fields. Since they are direct cuttings from a proven female plant, this is the best form of prevention to keep male plants from popping up in fields and pollinating the females, creating seed. Another option is planting fields with feminized seed. This method is less reliable since there is no guarantee that all the seed will grow up female. Farmers must walk their entire field, seek, and remove male plants before they pollinate the fields. Regardless of how diligent a farmer may be, pollen from other hemp farms and even wild hemp can float in from miles away and pollinate a field. Either way, farmers have the hardest jobs of the hemp industry. Seeds are normal and inevitable, but Kola Flower Co. assures that you have the best hemp on the market!
