Bloody Mary Jane

For a traditional Blood Mary, you’re always going to have Worcestershire, lemon juice, salt, pepper, celery, tomato juice, horseradish—probably a few dashes of tabasco.

But if you’re feeling adventurous, it’s a drink that can benefit from a little experimentation with spice. Things like horseradish, sriracha wasabi, or curry powder and different types of hot sauce can all create different flavor profiles as well as added spiciness. 

The effect of the infusing CBD with cocktails varies for different people, but generally, it is one of euphoria without the irking sense of anxiety caused by regular cannabis. CBD (Cannabidiol) is usually known to have a calming effect, relaxing the senses from other physical discomforts.

CBD is also known to reduce inflammation and nausea, so coupled with the tomato juice’s potent anti-oxidants,this cocktail is an ideal hangover remedy.

The CBD dosage varies from one person to another, which can also depend on your preference. A high dosage of CBD oil, when mixed with alcohol, tends to make you sleepy and intoxicated. However, you won’t feel the effects of CBD if your drink has more alcohol in it. So, for a starter, it would be better to balance the mixture with a lower dose of CBD oil, and you can increase the dosage over time.

The more the alcohol content in your cocktail, the lesser your chances are of noticing the effects of CBD. But, if you go overboard with the CBD content, you might end up getting too sleepy for the better part of the time.

Getafix CBD Oil contains no artificial flavours and has a very neutral taste so it will not affect the overall taste of your cocktails.

We only use the cleanest purest ingredients and extraction methods for our CBD extracts and our products are laboratory tested to ensure it’s effectiveness.

Please note: Getafix CBD Oil contains zero THC. This recipe will not make you or your guests high or intoxicated, but it will put them in a better, more relaxed mood. 

Ingredients

CBD-Infused Pie Filling

  • About 425g (15 oz) canned pumpkin pie puree
  • three large eggs plus
  • 1 extra egg yolk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • Between five-eight 1ml drops  of Getafix 1000mg CBD oil      (1ml = 33mg of CBD)

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • two tablespoons granulated sugar

Servings: 8-10

Baking Guidelines

  1. Preheat your oven to  180’C (350’F)

  2. Place pie crust into a 9-inch (22cm) pie pan, removing any excess dough as required. Pinch and crimp the edges together to make a nice pattern.

  3. Combine the black pepper, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg in a little bowl.

  4. In a separate, bigger bowl, combine your heavy cream and doses of CBD before whisking in the eggs. Mix in the pumpkin puree and then the dry components till nicely incorporated.

  5. Pour the pie filling into your crust. Line the outside of the crust with foil or parchment paper to keep away from burning (or use a nifty pie crust shield, if you have one particular).

  6. Bake for 50 minutes – 1 hour till the filling has set but still has a tiny jiggle in the center.

Whip it up, and Serve

Combine all the components for the whipped cream — i.e. the heavy whipping cream and sugar — in a big bowl with tall sides. 

Then slice your pie, serve it with whipped cream, and take pleasure in a new,  much more chillaxed version of the Thanksgiving tradition.

Supercritical CO2 extraction has actually been around for decades. In fact it was first used in the 1980’s for the extraction of essential oil for perfumes to the decaffeination of coffee and tea. CO2 extraction has been used in a number of different industries such fruit and nut extracts/aromas, Omega-3 oils, fragrances, hop-oil extraction for beer and even oil extractions from algae to be used as an alternative energy source.

CO2 Extraction Machinery

CO2 Extractor

What is CO2 Extraction?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is usually present as a gas at standard temperature and pressure. CO2 is considered to be a “tunable solvent” which means that it is considerably versatile and is effective in creating a large variety of end products by ‘tuning’ or controlling temperature and pressure. Supercritical carbon dioxide refers to CO2’s fluid state, which takes place above its critical temperature and pressure.

CO2 extraction is a process that uses pressurized carbon dioxide to extract or ‘pull’ the desired phytochemicals from a plant. When used with hemp, the process pulls all of the essential cannabinoids, terpene oils and waxes out of the plant material.

At certain temperatures and pressures, CO2 acts like a solvent. However, CO2does not have the same dangers associated with most solvents which is why the best manufacturers are using CO2 as a way to create a pure, clean, quality oil which involves minimal post-processing. This greatly differs CO2 from so many other toxic solvent products offered by other CBD brands.

How does it work?

Hemp is ground up and added to the extraction vessel, where CO2 is pressurized and ‘passed over’ the plant material. The pressurized CO2 can either be processed subcritically (low pressure, low temperature) or supercritically (high pressure, high temperature), depending on the desired outcome. Subcritical extracts will require less post-processing, (filtering) while supercritical extracts will need filtering work to remove undesired plant compounds like fats and waxes.

A supercritical fluid has properties between a gas and a liquid. For instance, a supercritical fluid can fill a space like a gas; however, still maintain its liquid-like density. The supercritical fluid can pass through the raw cannabis while gently dissolving and capturing their many active compounds.

Supercritical liquids are ideal non-chemical solvents because they can pass through porous solids and also dissolve materials, and the “tunability” of supercritical CO2 extraction allows the maximum extraction of cannabidiol while keeping undesirable compounds such as chlorophyll out of the final product.

So after the pressurized carbon dioxide pulls the desired phytochemicals from the plant, the plant matter is filtered through a series of chambers. When the pressure releases, the CO2 converts back to a gas and is released from the extracted oil.

Sub-Critical vs. Supercritical

Subcritical CO2 extraction is the same sort of process; however, supercritical occurs at higher temperatures and pressures. In subcritical, the carbon dioxide remains in a liquid state.

Supercritical extraction produces a substance with the consistency of peanut butter made up of fats, oils and waxes. A process called winterization may then be used to remove the fats and waxes, leaving pure CBD oil.

The subcritical product also preserves cannabinoids other than CBD; which may or may not be desirable. While the Supercritical CO2 process may destroy various cannabinoids through thermal degradation, it yields more cannabidiol – and in a far shorter time. Supercritical oil extraction also kills bacteria, mold and other forms of contaminants that are harmful for our bodies.

Because the solubility in CO2 varies with pressure, supercritical CO2 can be used to extract selected compounds (rather than a combination of all compounds) with just a few small adjustments.

What are the benefits?

Our bodies naturally produce carbon dioxide (CO2) when we breathe so it’s considered a “natural” product.

CO2 extraction processes do not release the CO2 into the atmosphere and therefore do not contribute toward carbon emission increases in our atmosphere.

CO2 extraction doesn’t use flammable petroleum-based solvents (like butane). This removes the danger of explosions from the CO2 extraction process as well as potentially harmful petroleum-based butane particles from the final, very fine, concentrated CBD product.

Another benefit of CO2 extraction that it kills any microbial bacteria, mold, mildew or insect mites This guarantees that your concentrates will be cleaner and significantly healthier for you.

Due to the lack of chemicals and preservation of terpene aromas, CO2 extracted oil is also much better tasting, making them ideal for cannabis concentrates.

Because C02 is a “tunable solvent”, we can extract and isolate specific cannabinoids, terpenes, and other botanical components of the plant. CO2 extraction preserves the plant terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids without the use of chemicals. Once the extracted plant compounds are heated, or pressure is reduced, the carbon dioxide is released from the extracted oils.

Since carbon dioxide can also be used as a sanitizing agent, CO2 extraction improves the shelf life of cannabis oil.

Because C02 is a “tunable solvent”, we can extract and isolate specific cannabinoids, terpenes, and other botanical components of the plant. CO2 extraction preserves the plant terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids without the use of chemicals. Once the extracted plant compounds are heated, or pressure is reduced, the carbon dioxide is released from the extracted oils.

Since carbon dioxide can also be used as a sanitizing agent, CO2 extraction improves the shelf life of cannabis oil.

In Summary…

Getafix uses the supercritical CO2 extraction method and this process maintains the purity of the plant terpenes and cannabinoids. Many companies choose not to use this process since the required equipment carries a high price tag and the process is expensive and time consuming.

Supercritical CO2 produces CBD that is cleaner, has significantly less toxicity, and is more aromatic than butane hash oil products.

Furthermore, when purchasing a CBD product for yourself or for your beloved pet, it is even more essential to be confident that you are getting a product that is clean, pure, safe and effective.

Full/Broad Spectrum and CBD Isolates

There are many varieties of CBD qualities, potencies, brands and consumption methods to choose from. Another factor to consider when deciding which CBD product is best for you is whether to use full spectrum, broad spectrum or CBD isolates.

These 3 types of CBD products are based on the number of different cannabinoids and plant materials found in the product. At one end of the ‘spectrum’ is full-spectrum CBD, which contains a variety of compounds called cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. At the other end is CBD isolate, which is nothing but pure, ‘isolated’ CBD.

All full and broad-spectrum, and isolates have their uses and advantages, but is one of them the ‘best’ for you? Also, what is the entourage effect? Is it real, and if it is, what can it do for you?

Legal Compliance

In many parts of Europe, as well as South Africa, CBD products are only allowed for sale if they contain less than 0.01% THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana, which is still classified as an illegal drug in most countries.

In order to be fully legally compliant, and to make our import/export procedures fully compliant with local regualations,, Getafix presently offers only broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products that contain ZERO THC.

We are planning to launch some full-spectrum products in select regions in the near future.

Full Spectrum

A full-spectrum CBD product uses less processing than isolates. For other products, like broad-spectrum or isolates, manufacturers filter and process the oil more extensively until it contains only the desired cannabinoids.

Some users are concerned about full-spectrum products containing THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. THC is typically only found in quantities of less than 0.3% in industrial hemp. As a result, some reputable manufacturers will ensure that all full-spectrum CBD products contain less than 0.3% THC.

The Advantages of a Full-Spectrum CBD Oil

The entourage effect implies that full-spectrum products could be more effective. At this point in time, scientific research into other cannabinoids has been limited, and athough scientists aren’t entirely sure what these other cannabinoids could do, the initial results are encouraging.

Terpenes, the aromatic molecules produced by plants, are often used in aromatherapy and are also beneficial for our health. Terpenes such as ‘linalool’ may help with natural sleep patterns. Linalool is found in lavender and is often recommended to those who are struggling with sleep.

The main problem with full spectrum CBD products is THC, which is still classed as an illegal drug around the world. Full-spectrum CBD contains a small amount of intoxicating THC, which makes it difficult to comply with the 0.3% legal limit in most countries. At less than 0.3%, THC is not strong enough to cause to get you ‘high’ or intoxicated.

Generally, users prefer to use a full-spectrum CBD in order to improve their general well-being but are concerned about legality and drug testing issues. If you live in a state or country where marijuana is illegal, or if you are worried about a drug test, then you might be concerned about THC content.

The Entourage Effect

As you may already know, CBD is widely used to alleviate a growing variety of health-related ailments, such as stress, anxiety, insomnia, nausea, pain, inflammation, and even epilepsy. CBD itself does not “treat” any one condition, but rather, it helps to restore homeostasis to neurological and immunological pathways. Cannabidiols, such as CBD and THC, are two of over 100 effective compounds found in cannabis.

The endocannabinoid system in our bodies is responsible for regulating important functions in the body, such as mood, sleep, appetite, and even sex drive. Cannabinoids interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors found all over the body. While CB1 receptors can be found in the brain and nervous system, CB2 receptors are found throughout the immune system and other organs.

Terpenes are another compound found in cannabis, and also interact with endocannabinoid receptors in a similar way to regulate homeostasis of our bodily functions.

The Entourage Effect refers to the synergistic collaboration of the different cannabinoids, flavonoids, fatty acids, and terpenes interacting with receptors in the endocannabinoid system. The theory is that when multiple components of the cannabis or hemp plants act on CB1 and CB2 receptors, stronger effects are produced.

To put it simply, the entourage effect helps to improve the efficacy of CBD.

Broad Spectrum

The main difference between full and broad-spectrum CBD is that broad-spectrum contains zero THC. This removes any potential risk associated with consuming CBD products that contain even trace amounts of THC with respect to legality and drug testing.

Broad spectrum CBD offers many of the same advantages that full-spectrum THC has, because it still contains a variety of cannabinoids, including terpenes and antioxidants. This makes it a smart choice for those who cannot have–or don’t want–any THC in their system, while still taking advantage of the entourage effect.

Our Getafix 1000mg oil tincture has been laboratory certified to confirm that it is a broad-spectrum product that has been extracted using the latest CO2 extraction technology. The test results below show that our products are clean, effective and contain a variety of cannabinoids maximizing the entourage effect:

Isolates

The simplest form of CBD is an isolate. This contains nothing except pure, isolated CBD. The main characteristic of CBD isolates is that they don’t consist of the other complementary compounds that come from hemp.

Our Getafix CBD isolates are made by extracting CBD from the whole hemp plant, not just the seeds. All the naturally-occurring compounds other than CBD, such as THC, terpenes, and chlorophyll are completely removed. Our CBD isolates are therefore >99% pure CBD and contains zero THC.

When looking for CBD oil, always make sure that you read the manufacturer’s label to see the percentage of CBD within it. Some can be 99% pure, others may promise 99.5%, but some will guarantee you 99.9% purity with no identifiable amounts of other cannabinoids.

For many manufacturers, CBD isolates are processed using harsh and toxic chemicals such acetone or butane, and can even negate the potential benefits of CBD. All Getafix CBD products are processed using ultra-clean CO2 extraction methods and every consumer should accept nothing less.

Even though full-spectrum hemp oil cannot cause intoxication, not everyone is comfortable using a product that contains THC, especially when giving it to their pets. If you’re interested in hemp-derived CBD but worried about giving your pet anything containing THC, Getafix CBD for Pets is your best choice.
