A Few Frequently Asked Questions About CBD



What is CBD?
CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid—a plant-based compound derived from the hemp plant. It affects the body’s endocannabinoid system by attaching to CB-2 receptors. CBD isolate, by definition, does not contain THC—which is found in marijuana and may produce cognitive effects such as euphoric or dissociative feelings.

Do Nature’s Ultra products contain THC?
No, Nature’s Ultra products are formulated with a CBD isolate, which by definition contains no THC.

Is Nature’s Ultra CBD oil broad spectrum or full spectrum?
Nature’s Ultra uses a combination of CBD isolate and the terpenes in essential oils to produce a broad-spectrum CBD oil without THC.


What is the difference between full-spectrum and isolate CBD oils?
There is significant discussion about isolates versus full-spectrum CBD oils, which contain other compounds in the plant. Full-spectrum products include both CBD and THC. The best way to ensure that there is no THC present and to control purity is to use CBD isolate. However, the terpenes found in essential oils can increase the overall spectrum of a product. By adding Young Living essential oils to Nature’s Ultra CBD products, the product is no longer truly an isolate but a broad-spectrum CBD product. This provides the best way to control purity and efficacy.



Are Nature’s Ultra products labeled as Seed to Seal®?
Nature’s Ultra products infused with Young Living essential oils will have the Young Living logo and Seed to Seal logo on the packaging. Young Living has performed extensive audits on their production processes, from farming to manufacturing, to ensure that they meet the same rigorous standards in place for our Seed to Seal suppliers.

Young Living sources oils from three types of suppliers:

    1. Corporate Farms – owned, managed and run by Young Living
    2. Partner Farms
    3. Seed To Seal Certified Suppliers

The same level of quality is expected regardless of where we get our oils. Whether they come from our farms, our partner farms or one of our Seed To Seal Certified Supplier, the bar is always the same. 100% Seed to Seal quality.


Seed To Seal Certified Suppliers


Every single supplier has to must meet Young Living’s standards. We do stringent quality testing. We make sure all of the documentation is there. This testing is done every single time we get a batch of oil from a supplier. We are very serious about what we expect from our suppliers. Each supplier must go through Seed To Seal training and certification. They cannot supply to us unless they go through this process.


Then once through the training process they must sign a declaration that they WILL comply with Seed To Seal. It’s a contract and they are held accountable. They are also required to understand strict compliance rules and must comply with their country’s rules but also laws within the US.


Enhanced visits
Many supplier distilleries are shocked when YL comes to visit. They say none of the other companies they have supplied have ever come to see how we do things. The only way you can check all of that is if someone is there. So we go there to make sure they are following the rules.


When we visit a supplier, we want to know some things that contribute to the quality of the oil. Where do their seeds come from? In the example of ylang ylang trees, where did they get those trees 15 or 20 years ago when they were first planted?
As you replant, where did that come from? We watch the distillation process. We also ask to see record keeping. How do they
keep track of their distillation. How do they keep track of inventory. How they keep track of the people who work for them. How are they being paid? Business licenses, proof of taxes being paid. We don’t just want to be sure the oils are being produced the right way, we want to make sure they are running their company the right way.



Next Level is Partner Farms


Once a supplier qualifies to this level, Young Living then provides significant capital investment in the farm. We rebuild the distillery. Resources and go there for the long term to teach them each step of the process and give them even more skills than they had to date. More tools and resources. Longer term contracts. Exclusive relationships with them. They only sell to Young Living and not to a competitor.


New Partner Farm in Quintis Farm in Perth, Australia – Sacred Sandalwood


Newest Partner Farm – Balkan Botanical Farm in Bulgaria
This farm will be producing Roman Chamomile and Valerian. We have not had these oils in over 2 years. Over the years many samples of these oils have been submitted to Young Living but they did not meet Seed to Seal quality standards so they were rejected. We are not willing to compromise our quality standards. We would rather not have the oil, than sell a lower quality product.

Be

sides the corporate owned farms, there are currently 7 Partner Farms. This number is growing as we turn Certified Suppliers into Partner Farms.

D. Gary Young Shares His Discoveries About Growing and Harvesting Einkorn



We are experiencing a lot of excitement here at the Young Living Skyrider Ranch in Tabiona, Utah!


After the ranch was purchased, I looked out over the fields and the majestic mountains that span from the Duchesne River at 6,500 feet to the mountain tops on the ranch at 10.000 feet, and I started imagining all the potential this 4,500 acres of God’s paradise could bring to our Young Living family, from corporate activities to member retreats. Then I started thinking about einkorn and wondering how well it would grow at this altitude of 6.700 feet.


So I decided to prepare the ground, and in May the seed that came from our farm in France was seeded into 100 acres here for trial planting and growing. Normally. Einkorn does the best with late fall planting; however, because of the late fall rains, we were unable to get a crop in the ground before it was too late. I felt we were better off experimenting with spring planting to see what it would do rather than wait another year to find out.


I was constantly watching the fields with great anticipation. At this altitude it was a “roll of the dice” whether it would germinate in time to grow to full maturity before the fall frost would come. Einkorn is a unique grain, and since it is considered a dry land crop, many people get fooled by its behavior. When planted, it will germinate and come through the ground in 7 days and grow like crazy until it reaches a height of 4 to 6 inches, and then it stops growing.


After einkorn pokes its head through the soil, it doesn’t grow for 3 to 4 weeks and appears to just be enjoying the sunshine, the beautiful air, and the freedom of being above the ground. However, a phenomenon is taking place during this time of false dormancy.

The einkorn never really stops growing but is taking in the carbon dioxide and electromagnetic energy from the sun and sending it to the roots to give the nutrient support for them to grow fast and deep in preparation for the third phase of its life cycle. At this point the growth is all beneath the surface as the roots push deeper into Mother Earth to reach the best minerals and nutrients as well as water before it returns to its journey skyward.


Once the einkorn has reached optimal root depth, it focuses on growing tall. One morning we will walk out into the field and will be amazed to see that the einkorn has grown 2 inches overnight. Every day the shaft grows, preparing the foundation to feed the baby kernels that soon start to form.


As the einkorn here grew taller and taller, I knew I had made a good decision. By July the heads were about 3 feet tall, and by mid-August they had grown to my shoulders.


When we hear in our minds the words “for amber waves of grain” in the song America the Beautiful, we immediately see miles of wheat gently waving back and forth in the wind. But here at the ranch, the waves are in the beautiful fields of einkorn.


I felt a little emotional knowing that hundreds of tons of grain from these fields will feed people around the world, who now will have a choice to eat a safe, nutritious. non-hybridized grain.


I watch for three stages of growth and maturity in my einkorn to determine the best time for harvest:


The first stage is called the milk stage, when the kernels start to form, you squeeze them, and what comes out looks like white milk.


The second stage is the soft dough stage, which is when the kernels are completely formed, and the heads are turning yellowish in color. The stalk is still green. but when you peel back the husk, there is a living substance called the kernel. It will appear completely formed; however, half of it will still be slightly green, and the rest, a yellowish tan color. When you pinch the kernel, it will be firm, but the interior will come out like soft dough.


When the kernels are fully developed, they will fall off with rain, the movement of the wind, or the harvesting machine. In ancient times when farmers harvested with a scythe, the knife blade slicing through the stalks would knock off the kernels, so the people knew they had to cut before final maturity. They then began the harvest but cut in the soft dough stage and tied the stalks into bundles to let them stand on end in a teepee shape so that the wind would not knock them over. This also allowed the rain or dew to fall and run off without causing mold from lying on the ground.


After 7 to 10 days, the kernels reach the third and final phase of maturity, which is called the hard dough stage, where the kernel is rock hard and ready for threshing, which is separating the kernel from the skin that covers it, called the husk.


Another phenomenon takes place while the bundles are standing in the field and maturing with the rain and dew. The daily sunshine evaporating the dew stimulates the enzymes in the kernel to germinate, putting the kernels into a predigested state ready for human or animal consumption that is easily digested, as it is supposed to do.


Today, hybridized grains in conjunction with the fast, modern way of harvesting and threshing make the grain difficult to digest, which causes all kinds of problems. This way of harvesting takes the life force out of what nature has created and has made our modern wheat, which has been called by many “Frankenwheat,” which is damaging the health of the world.


Like the ancient farmers, I waited until our einkorn had reached the soft dough stage, and then I started to harvest. I was so impressed when Janay Standifird, Nikki Davis, Eddie Silcock, and Lee Bowen, with their very busy office schedules, came to help in the beginning of the harvest. They stood in awe as they watched me on the old-fashioned three-horse-drawn binder start the harvest by cutting and tying the einkorn into bundles.


Putting the stalks into “tepees,” referred to as shocking the grain, was so gratifying for everyone. The farm crew finished shocking the bundles the second day, leaving tepees standing everywhere in the fields to give the einkorn time to germinate-a scene from times long ago that can only be seen at the Young Living ranch or one or one of our farms.


In about 10 days, we will thresh the grain and be ready to send it into the production of our products-but will hold some for planting later this month.


I’m sure that many of our new members are curious about einkorn, which is why I wrote my book Ancient Einkorn, Today’s Staff of Life, which I encourage everyone to read.
