FOR THOSE THAT HAVE READ ABOUT YOUR BODY HAVING NATURAL RECEPTORS IN YOUR BODY FOR CBD HERE IT IS EXPLAINED:
What is your endocannabinoid system?
“The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the main and peripheral nervous systems, including neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.” Wikipedia. There are 2 primary kinds of receptors in the ECS, CB1 and CB2. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the main nerve system and brains of mammals, and CB2 are normally found in the peripheral anxious system. There are two main cannabinoids mammals produce- 2AG and Anandamide (called after the Sanskrit term “ananda” which translates to “peace”). For hundreds of millions of years every vertebrate on Earth has actually been equipped with this ECS, a vital system in the body, and it has been learnt about in the clinical and medical communities since the 1980’s. Nevertheless, it’s still not taught about in most medical schools.

Ohio Valley CBD products are manufactured in an FDA registered facility, USA made product. Our certificates of analysis (Coa’s) are located under our contact us page and are third party tested as well as having being tested by the lab who provides our products.
WHY IS OHIO VALLEY CBD OIL BETTER THAN THE GROCERY STORE BRAND?
Hemp products sold in stores are most often made with hemp seed oil, which can contain only trace amounts of CBD. While it has been noted that hemp seed oil can be a great source of nutrition, its marginal quantity of CBD per weight makes it infeasible as a CBD supplement. Quality product with CBD is crucial to effectiveness of the product. Many products are the grocery store, stand alone stores, vape shops, etc, do not have a COA for you to look at and you may be then getting unsafe products or products that contain little to no CBD or products that can be harmful. Please do not buy CBD products that cannot offer you a COA.

Many will start out with 1/3 – 1/2 of a dropper (5-10 drops) and work their way up to a full dropper twice a day. Our recommendation from our lab:
DROPS: THERE ARE 30 DROPS IN ONE FULL DROPPER
500MG TINCTURES IS 16.66 MG PER FULL DROPPER, 750MG TINCTURES ARE 25MG PER FULL DROPPER, 1000MG TINCTURE IS 33.33MG PER FULL DROPPER
What is standard seed oil vs the high end extract?
Standard hemp oil, which can be discovered really inexpensively at a supermarket, is a much various product than our CO2 hemp extracts (not from seed). Basic hemp oil is produced by cold pressing the seeds, whereas our hemp extract is a subcritical CO2 extraction of the hemp plant itself, not the seeds. Hemp seed oil is thought about to be a fantastic nutritive food, however it doesn’t have the naturally occurring terpenes, cannabinoids and other parts that our extracts do have.
DO THESE SHOW UP ON A DRUG TEST?
CBD is considered to be undetectable in saliva or urine tests, though there remains a rare instance with “FULL SPECTRUM” that the small trace amounts of THC may be detected. All of our products comply with all regulations regarding THC FREE content, however, we recommend you check with your employer. We are not responsible for any failed drug tests.
