We are believers in holistic medicine and modern science. We are advocates of bringing them together to achieve a healthier lifestyle. We are veterans of the food and beverage industry who were looking for something better, and we found it by creating Rickett “Jolie Fleur"
Extraction & Purification
Our Cannabis extracts are created using proprietary cold, closed extraction and purification technology. This preserves the plant oils that contain cannabinoids and other beneficial compounds, while removing waxes and chlorophyll. Purification also ensures there are no heavy metals or pesticides, so our cannabis extract meets strict regulatory requirements.
Plant oils and water don’t mix – unless, of course, they are mixed with patent-pending nanotechnology. This science is used to break down the cannabis oil particles to form nanoparticles (one-millionth of their original size!) so they can be evenly encapsulated in a water molecule cluster, which can in-turn be infused easily into water. Reducing it to such small nanoparticles creates a more stable emulsion – meaning our cannabis extract stays bonded to the water molecules, so the oil and water don’t separate, which can be a problem with some cannabis products. By staying attached to water, up to 90% of the cannabis extract is able to be absorbed into the bloodstream, rather than being filtered out by the body.
Third-Party Lab Tested
We don’t just say our products are rich in cannabinoids. We have the third-party testing data to prove it and it is printed on each bottle. Third-party testing guarantees that our products contain the amount of cannabis extract we claim, so you can be sure you’re receiving the full benefit.
We buy only from the best California farms with naturally developed strains of amazing cannabis, our suppliers use proprietary plant strains and state-of-the-art cloning practices to ensure that their plants are rich in beneficial cannabinoids as well as THC.
All of our cannabis is grown in California with organic farming methods. Our suppliers’ farms are free of synthetic pesticides and chemicals, and follow best-in-class sustainability and transparency practices.
What is a cannabinoid?
These are naturally occurring chemical compounds that can be beneficial for the body. They are found in hemp and other plants, as well as our cannabis extract and products.
There are more than 60 identified cannabinoids with different properties and herbal effects. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known, and is the ONLY psychoactive cannabinoid.
Is hemp the same plant as marijuana?
Yes and no. Scientifically they are considered the same species but different strains. The difference is that hemp strain is not psychoactive, because it only contains less than 0.3% THC. Marijuana strains contain anywhere from 5% to 20% even up to 30% THC.
How much cannabis extract is in Rickett’s products?
10mg per bottle giving you a very similar effect to a glass of champagne.
What do you mean when you say your extract comes from the whole plant?
Some cannabis products use only a single, lab-isolated cannabinoid. Our cannabis extract contains all the cannabinoids preserved during the extraction process—we call this “whole plant,” but you may also hear it called “full spectrum” or “broad spectrum” in the scientific community.
We chose to use whole plant cannabis extract because of the potential for an “entourage effect.” This is a phenomenon science is just beginning to understand, but it basically means that multiple chemical compounds in a plant can work together to create a greater effect on the body than any of them would on their own.
How do cannabinoids work in the body?
Although science is still working on figuring out the details, the big picture is that cannabinoids interact with the body through the endocannabinoid system. Yes, you read that right.
In the 90s, scientists researching THC discovered that the human body makes its own cannabinoid-like molecules. Receptors for these molecules are located in the brain and nerves, but also in numerous other body parts, including the skin, bones, blood vessels, heart, liver and GI tract. According to UCLA Health, scientists now know that “the endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide variety of processes, including pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function.
