Why where you get your CBD matters.


Upstate Aura CBD

CBD is one of nature's most powerful gifts, but also one of the hardest to understand.

While research is being done about what clinically proven effects it may haven, we are gaining more and more anecdotal evidence of the wonders it works for people of all kinds. 

But all CBD is not created equal, and in a market that’s full of confusing marketing, hard-to-understand language, and a seemingly endless number of options, it’s important to know that the CBD you’re getting is pure, potent, and going to work the way you’re expecting.

Here’s what you should look for when buying CBD.

Is it full spectrum?

When searching for the perfect CBD, you’ll likely come across two options: Full Spectrum and Isolate. While isolate is the purest form of the CBD molecule, extracted and put into a carrier oil that makes it safe to ingest or use on your skin, it’s also stripped of all the other natural chemicals, terpenes and essential oils found in the hemp plant. Finding a quality, Full Spectrum extract is essential to getting all the benefits from these powerful plants. Full Spectrum CBD is also more likely to give you the “entourage effect,” which happens when all the powerful parts of the plant work together to maximize the benefits you’ll notice.

Is it organic?

Pure. Natural. Fresh. There are a lot of marketing words you’ll see on CBD that don’t really mean anything at all. But there’s one thing you should always look for in your CBD, and that’s a certification that what you’re consuming is USDA Organic. Why? CBD works with your endocannabinoid system to deliver the effects of CBD to receptors throughout the brain and body. In order to get the most of these effects, it’s so important that the CBD your receptors are receiving is truly pure and potent, and an Organic label ensures that’s the case. 

Do you know where it came from?

In the past few years, CBD has widely grown in popularity—and lots of people are looking to capitalize on a business opportunity, without putting the care and passion into creating products that really work. Think about your CBD like you would think about your food. While you may not eat organic, hand-picked ingredients all the time, you probably understand the importance of making the switch when you can.

As a family owned farm in the Catskills of New York, we believe in the power of nature to provide in a way that’s truly magical—and it’s our goal to share that abundance with you. Our roots here run deep, and CBD is way more than just a trend for us, it’s our livelihood, passion, and honor to share with you.
