About Rare Cannabinoid Company
Rare Cannabinoid Company was created by the owners of Hawaiian Choice, Hawaiʻi's most popular CBD company, which can be found in more than 150 stores and spas from New York to Tokyo. In listening to customer feedback, we felt that many people wanted to customize their cannabinoid wellness regimes with the addition of precise amounts of rare cannabinoids for targeted effects. While Hawaiian Choice remains dedicated to infusing all tinctures, topicals and edibles with real Hawaiian fruits, essential oils and honey, Rare Cannabinoid Company was created to fill a different need.
This means going beyond CBD (cannabidiol) to bring you CBN (cannabinol), CBC (cannabichromene), CBG (cannabigerol), and THCV (tetrahydracannavarin). Research into these rare cannabinoids is just emerging, but each is believed to offer a different mental and/or physical wellness benefit as they interact with the human endocannabinoid system.
We offer these rare cannabinoids in two ways: as full spectrum blends and as double strength single extracts.
Our 1:1 full spectrum blends mix 250mg of rare cannabinoids with 250mg of organically grown Hawaiian CBD hemp extract for a complete daily supplement that offers the “entourage effect" in a unique targeted formulation. They are combined with certified USDA organic MCT coconut oil and gently flavored with organic food grade Italian lemon and wild orange oils.
Our single extracts are twice the strength of our blends and can be added to your daily CBD or THC cannabinoid regime to enhance specific effects or be taken on their own. They are naturally flavorless as they are isolates combined only with MCT coconut oil.
You can also purchase our Hawaiian CBD hemp extract on its own and then enhance it with our single extracts. Our rare Hawaiian extract comes from a small, 10-acre organic farm on the island of Kauaʻi. You can read more about it and the U.S. hemp farms and extraction methods of our rare cannabinoids on our Ingredients page.
What are rare cannabinoids?
So, what are rare cannabinoids? Simply put, a rare cannabinoid is any cannabinoid that is rare. While CBD and THC are found in large quantities in hemp and cannabis plants, a rare cannabinoid will only account for between 0.01% to 10% of the overall mass of the plant.
The scientific community believes that there are at least 100 individual cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis plants, each likely to hold a unique health benefit.
Due to their low volume, rare cannabinoids are much more difficult and costly to produce than CBD or THC. Only recently have science and technology advanced to the point that more of these cannabinoids can be isolated and produced in larger quantities.
Due to their scarcity, there has been little medical research into rare cannabinoids. However, they are increasingly being studied for their potential benefits. Anecdotal evidence points to CBN assiting with sleep and THCV offering an uplifting feel while decreasing appetite.
We recommend that you seek advice from a licensed physician trained in cannabis to find out if you can benefit from our products. As technology advances, we will offer even more rare cannabinoids. We hope you enjoy taking them and wish you all health and happiness.
