Peach & Moon Organics was founded in 2017 by Matthew Brown and Leigh Jarvis. Cannabidiol (CBD) was the reason they created the company. Leigh's father, Keith, suffers from Parkinson's Disease. The medication used for PD makes life less than desirable, so Matt & Leigh went looking for something that could help him - something that wouldn't make him want to drink the kool-Aid. Matt & Leigh were faced with the many questions people are still faced with today when selecting a CBD brand, and so the two year journey began to find a supplier and a product that would not cause harm to Keith. Only the best would do.
As with many who first read about CBD oil, the start of the journey was problematic. It began with some oil, bought from someone who knew someone who produced the best oil, blah blah cancer blah blah cure blah blah. This 'fantastic' oil came with no labels, no indication of what it contained or where it had come from (let alone the many other extremely important questions like how it was extracted). Keith did not have a pleasant time. Keith had a very unpleasant time. Keith was high for the first time in his life. He took what was sold as 'CBD' with unfortunate consequences. It made him scared to take anything his daughter offered him again. Matt and Leigh look back at that time with great shame! Apart from getting the poor man high who knows what else was in that oil! Cannabis plants are bioaccumulators and suck up all the nasties from the soil in which they are grown. Cannabis is also often extracted with things like Butane, and often these solvents are not fully purged when the extraction is done the backyard.
So they looked and looked and then they settled on a Dutch supplier for Keith (and Peach & Moon), and here's why:
All Peach & Moon CBD products make use of C02 Supercritical extraction.
Supercritical CO2 Oil: Carbon dioxide (CO2) converts to a liquid when subjected to low temperatures and pressure. In this state it exhibits special properties and when reheated and pressurised it will become supercritical (somewhere between a gas and a liquid). This can then pass through cannabis plant material in order to extract active compounds. This is very expensive and requires hi-tech equipment which is why none of the backyard folk are doing it.
Supercritical C02 extraction is considered the gold standard as it ensures a very potent, very pure extract that contains the maximum amount of active cannabinoids and it does not leave behind residues. This extraction process does not contribute to atmospheric carbon emissions. This method is not only used in the cannabis industry but also other industries such as manufacturers producing decaffeinated coffee.
Peach & Moon products are all full-spectrum except for their CBD vape Juice, which is made using an isolate.
CBD isolate: CBD that has been isolated from the plant. It is a powder consisting of only CBD. CBD isolate has less of a taste due to the lack of terpenes.
Full-spectrum CBD contains cannabinoids and terpenes and the inclusion of these compounds enhances the natural therapeutic properties of CBD - this is known as the entourage effect. Peach & Moon products are full-spectrum hence the earthy strong flavour (apart from the vape juice).
Peach & Moon CBD oils contain cannabinoids and terpenes provided by the cannabis flowers and small leaves - this is known as a whole plant extract (a term often used interchangeably with full-spectrum).
Peach & Moon products are all 100% compliant with applicable legislation. Peach & Moon only uses cannabis (technically labelled as Hemp due to the THC threshold being below 0.3%) that has been bred to reduce the psychoactive ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) to the smallest quantity possible with only trace amounts of THC (below 0.2%). Hemp plants usually contain 2-5% CBD so a lot of hemp is required. Peach & Moon extract contains 16.5% CBD.
Peach & Moon products sit on the higher side in terms of CBD content. Peach & Moon have a 25% and an 8% CBD sublingual oil, with the recent addition of the CBD 400. Peach & Moon also have two flagship products: CBD Plus and CBD Plus Pen which contain 4% and 8% CBD (with extremely high bioavailability). Peach & Moon tell you how much CBD is in the bottle and how much CBD is in each drop or squirt, so that you know exactly what you are taking.
Water soluble CBD
Peach & Moon's flagship product is CBD Plus and their double dose pen. These products have high bioavailability which means you need to take less. They are also cleaner and easier to use as you only take it once a day and you can mix it with any beverage. These products provide you with the correct pre measured dose of 0.2ml.
Peach & Moon have excellent pricing when compared to similar products (C02 extracted, non-isolates), with similar strengths.
Fantastic customer service
Peach & Moon respond to all customer queries timeously and they are available via telephone, whatsApp and the online chat function on their website.
Peach & Moon products have a two year shelf-life when stored correctly.
Third party lab tested
All Peach & Moon products are third party lab tested.
No sweeping health claims
Peach & Moon Organics don't make crazy health claims. Cancer is extremely varied and complex - CBD is certainly not a cure and should never be sold as one.
