What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a natural compound which is found in the industrial hemp plant (cannabis sativa).  It has significant health benefits that can assist both the mind and body in a number of ways, but doesn’t have the psychoactive effect that THC has, which causes people to feel “high” or “stoned”.   

CBD is one of over 80 cannabinoids that can be extracted from the industrial hemp plant.  It has quickly become a preferred choice for people seeking a natural alternative to dangerous pharmaceuticals.

What is Hemp-Derived CBD?

SumaVita products are made from industrial hemp plants grown on the richest soil hemp fields in the USA.  Cannabidiol (CBD), a constituent that naturally occurs in industrial hemp is just one of over 80 cannabinoids that is identified in the cannabis plant.  Our il is CO2 extracted, resulting in a solvent-free, pure extract.

How is CBD from hemp different from CBD found in marijuana?

Both hemp and marijuana come from the same species of plant (cannabis sativa).  The primary difference between hemp and marijuana is that hemp plant contains extremely low levels of THC.  CBD that is extracted from either the hemp plant or marijuana plant is the exact same compound.

What makes SumaVita CBD different?

Who are the people behind SumaVita?

SumaVita was founded by two long time friends who were born and raised and live in the great Pacific Northwest.  We are both highly successful perpetual entrepreneurs with a deep love for staying active and healthy, with a growing concern around aging, overall wellness and longevity.  Mountain biking, golfing, fly fishing, hiking, skiing, surfing, and enjoying the great outdoors are daily activities.

Both of us have experienced the natural effects of the aging process and we were looking for more natural and organic remedies, rather than succumbing to the easy to fall into trap (see a Doctor, get a prescription, and repeat that process over and over again).  We believe in our bodies natural healing process over prescription drugs that are typically only a band-aid and short term fix.

The name SumaVita means “life elevated”.  We are passionate about our lives, our families, and the endless activities the PNW has to offer.  We are constantly searching for cutting edge products and new breakthrough technologies that can help bring longevity, health, and wellness to our family and friends.  Every product we bring to market has a focus on helping people live life to their very best potential.

For us…natural remedies are always a better choice.  We want to be at the forefront of bringing quality and natural solutions to those who think the way we do about health, vitality, aging, longevity and living an active life.  

Are your products safe?

Yes.  All our hemp crops are grown free of chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, so our quality starts with our hemp plants.  From the time our hemp oil is harvested to the manufacturing and the shipping of our products, we test our hemp oil multiple times to ensure accuracy and potency.  Our process tests for contaminants like pesticides, herbicides, heavy metals, and mold, as well as cannabinoid content. We also use a subcritical Co2 method when we extract our hemp oil, instead of harsh solvents.  Co2 is a much healthier manufacturing process compared to other potential solvents and is “generally regarded as safe” (GRAS) by the FDA.

How do I consume CBD?

CBD can be consumed in a number of ways, including being orally ingested or used topically on the skin.  The CBD oils from SumaVita can be consumed either way. If taken orally, you can simply hold a sublingual dose under the tongue for 30 to 60 seconds, which provides fast absorption.  If used topically, simply apply to the problem area.

How much CBD oil should I take?

There is no easy answer for this.   The recommended size is 20 drops a day, twice a day.  However, we generally recommend experimenting to see exactly what works for you.  Many people will start out with 1/3 to 1/2 of a dropper (5-10 drops) and work their way up to a full dropper twice a day.

Will CBD help me with my condition?

What is the Endocannabinoid System (ECS)?

“The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a group of endogenous cannabinoid receptors located in the mammalian brain and throughout the central and peripheral nervous systems, including neuromodulatory lipids and their receptors.”

– Wikipedia.

There are two primary kinds of receptors in the ECS:  CB1 and CB2.

CB1 receptors are mainly found in brains and central nervous systems of mammals.   CB2 receptors are normally found in the peripheral nervous system.

There are two primary cannabinoids that mammals produce – 2AG and Anandamide.  For hundreds of millions of years, every vertebrate on earth has actually been equipped with the ECS, a vital system in the body, and it has been learned about in the clinical and medical communities since the 1980’s.
