Unlike THC, CBD has no psychoactive properties whatsoever. Both THC and CBD are the two most extensively studied cannabinoids within the Hemp plant.

While Green Gorilla does not make any medicinal claims, research from several credible sources has shown that CBD has health benefits and specific details can be found throughout online sources with your own due diligence.
Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops and has such a diverse range of uses that it is grown as a renewable source for raw materials which can then be used for` thousands of products. Its flowers and seeds are used in organic body lotions, creams, general health care, organic and healthy foods, and other nutraceuticals. Hemp fibers and stalks are used in clothing, paper, construction materials, and plastics just to name a few.
Green Gorilla has chosen organic, extra virgin olive oil as it is well established as the plant based oil with the most health value, is the best recognized and absorbed by the human body, and works particularly well with CBD. There is simply no way to argue that any other carrier is better. And since olive oil has a naturally pleasing taste, and our purified CBD is odorless and tasteless, we don’t need to add any artificial sweeteners or other additives. Furthermore, our olive oil is one of the very best in the world. It is organic, fresh, and boasts some of the highest polyphenol levels in the industry. It also has extremely low acidity, giving it a long shelf life and better taste.
Extra virgin, organic olive oil is the ideal way to deliver CBD to your body. Beyond being the healthiest option, olive oil also has synergistic effects in combination with CBD, and is also able to deliver the CBD to the parts of your body that need it most.
Extra virgin olive oil has been shown to help with a very broad range of health conditions, and to be beneficial to one’s overall health. The research shown to the benefit of extra virgin, organic olive oil is overwhelming and well-documented. Most CBD products use either vegetable glycerin or propylene glycol as their carrier for the CBD. These are poor choices, and yield an inferior products.
Vegetable glycerin is a byproduct from the manufacturing of soaps, is produced using very high heat which destroys any health value, contains a decent amount of sugar, is a laxative, and can cause headaches, nausea and vomiting.
Propylene glycol is even worse, and is in some cases a byproduct of the manufacturing of biodiesel. Do you really want to eat something that is also a main ingredient in brake fluid for your car?
Research has strong evidence showing a causal link between our diets and our overall health for years, there have been scientific studies and research into the fields of nutrition: vitamins, minerals, micronutrients and dietary supplementation have all been key fundamentals in trying to find the balance for optimal health. Here in lays the fundamental basis for our choice to use Extra Virgin Olive Oil as the carrier for our CBD delivery system.
When taking Green Gorilla’s CBD Oil, holding the oil underneath your tongue for about 30 seconds makes use of one of the best absorption areas in your body, delivering about 90% of the CBD into your system. Whereas vaping or smoking CBD will burn off about 60% of the CBD before even reaching your body and any capsules or CBD food will lose about 50% of their effectiveness with stomach acids degrading the CBD.
