General Questions

Soul Mountain Started with a family project, growing low THC-high CBD “industrial hemp” in western Colorado. We developed our tinctures using extract from our own plants, and have continued to focus on formulations. To keep up with demand we have sourced hemp extract from similar organic grows in Colorado, where we can verify the quality of the plants from known high integrity growers.

It is! We use organic hemp extract sourced in Colorado, and do the formulating in Wisconsin. Our Colorado homestead is still there overlooking the North Fork Valley, near the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. And the evening alpenglow on the mountains is still just as inspiring.

But some of us are back home in Wisconsin developing our products and participating in the resurgence of hemp in the Midwest; we look forward to future crops grown in the fertile fields of Wisconsin’s Driftless Area.

Until 2019 hemp was not eligible for USDA organic certification. Our own hemp plants have been grown with meticulous adherence to organic standards, and we insist on the same level of organic integrity from any farm supplying hemp for our products. Our extraction experts personally visit the farms to verify that our high standards are met. Following federal legalization of hemp with the Farm Bill passed in December 2018, USDA organic certification is to become available.

CBD-drug interaction is an important consideration, and we recommend that you check with your pharmacist or doctor to see whether CBD might increase or reduce the action of a medication you use. As an excellent article article posted by projectCBD.org concludes, “Cannabidiol can both inactivate and enhance various cytochrome P450 enzymes in the liver- and this can potentially impact a wide range of medications. Drug interactions are especially important to consider when using life-saving or sense-saving drugs, drugs with narrow therapeutic windows, or medications with major adverse side effects. In particular, those who utilize high doses of CBD concentrates and isolates should keep this in mind when mixing remedies.”

THC is present, but only a very small amount. The ratio of CBD to THC in our tincture is 16:1, and well under the legally defined THC limit of 0.3% in all our products. Normal use does not produce a psychoactive effect.

The CO2 extraction process is very cold, and marketers point to that fact. But what they don’t often tell you is that they also use high heat to convert the cannabidiol in acid form, CBDA, to CBD. The extract is still raw following extraction, but in order to sell you a product high in CBD, the CBDA has to be decarboxylated, which means changed from the acid form to CBD. Soul Mountain tinctures are truly raw because we use a more painstaking approach to converting CBDA to CBD, and we keep the temperature below 120℉.

CO2 extraction can make a raw extract, but it does not extract the water-soluble plant constituents. It leaves behind water-soluble vitamins, flavonoids, alkaloids and more. CO2 does pull out all the cannabinoids and terpenes, but it does not produce an extract with all of the elements of the plant that contribute to a whole-plant herbal product. If you want an oil or tincture that includes all of the plant’s natural chemistry, an alcohol-extracted herbal product is the way to go.
