Tree of Life Botanicals is a Colorado based CBD supplier that was established in 2015. The most notable aspect of Tree of Life Botanicals is the fact they own and operate the entire production process including organic farms, extraction facilities and distribution.
The company offers a broad range of CBD products at reasonable prices. Their products include tinctures of varying strength, CBD isolate shatter in many flavors and a number of skin care products.
Tree of Life Botanicals grow their own high CBD strains of hemp developed by in-house breeding teams on organic farms in Colorado. They also own and operate the extraction facilities that utilize supercritical CO2 extraction.
Tree of Life Botanicals claim to guarantee product safety through both in-house and third party testing with the lab Steep Hill. The company publishes various test results on their site for their product range, however, some products only show concentration test results and others that show both concentration and contamination results are rather dated.
Product testing is very important to ensure purity, safety and concentration as the hemp plant is a bio-accumulator, this means that the plant absorbs contaminants in the soil which can end up in CBD products.
Tree of Life Botanicals uses supercritical CO2 extraction. CO2 extraction is the extraction method we recommend customers look for in a CBD product. It is the safest way to extract CBD, as it leaves no residual chemicals in the product. CO2 extraction is also less damaging to delicate cannabinoids compared with other extraction methods.
Tree of Life Botanicals CBD oil
Using CBD oil tinctures to drop and hold CBD under one’s tongue (often referred to as ‘sublingual administration’) is the the most effective way to dose CBD. The CBD is absorbed directly into the blood stream through blood vessels in the mouth, resulting in more CBD being usable by the body compared to when it is ingested.
- For more information on sublingual administration, read our guide on how to take CBD oil.
