Alex and Ryan Doyle, founders of the CBD company Doyle’s Oils, have been researching and experimenting with everything CBD. From extraction methods, consumer feedback, CBD potency, and more, they are truly fully immersing themselves into the world or CBD.
We spoke with the two who gave us the inside scoop on producing our favorite health supplement, CBD.
Founded in December 2017, the two operate their store online, getting in touch with doctors, veterinarians and other medicinal professionals local in Kentucky, where their products are sourced and sold.
Starting a Good Business By Word of Mouth
Getting into CBD through one of their friends who happens to be geneticist out in Colorado, the duo saw an opportunity to make people more aware of the therapeutic cannabinoid in their hometown of Lexington, KY.
“It seemed like an opportunity to do something that’s helpful for people as well as something that’s good for our location and our state,” Alex told me.
After learning more about the benefits of CBD upon a booming CBD market in Colorado, the two developed a new recipe to bring back to Kentucky. They now make it in their own state of Kentucky, and are proud to refer it as a “Kentucky pride product.”
Both Ryan and Alex saw a personal change after giving CBD a try. It helped increase Alex’s focus, and relieved pain for Ryan. These two quickly realized the power of CBD.
“Kentucky has a great history of being known for cannabis-type products because we have really good soil,” Alex stated. “Hemp used to be really big around here. So having a natural product right here made a lot of sense.”
All active ingredients are locally sourced in Kentucky, with the CBD itself coming from farms all over the state.
Doyle’s Oils works with another company out of a neighboring town, who Alex says “does all of the heavy lifting for Doyle’s Oils.” They use industrial-sourced Kentucky hemp, and operate a CO2 extraction from the flower to create a crystalline isolate. And, when they pick up the final product, the founders receive a certificate of authenticity showing exactly what’s in the CBD oil (99.9 percent CBD, no THC at all, no pesticides and no chemicals).
“We try and keep everything natural,” Ryan commented.
Speaking of being THC free, which all of their products currently are, the two helped me better understand the difference between CBD and THC.
“CBD is a lot like THC as far as how it acts in the body and your cannabinoid receptors,” Ryan said. “It binds to the fat. The higher the fat content, the better it will absorb into your body. Hemp oil is high in both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids, so we have found this recipe to be very effective.”
Speaking on oils specifically, in contrast to the plethora of other CBD products like soaps, scrubs, capsules and vapes, they said oil is different because it gets in your system faster.
“It hits you a lot faster, we find it to be pretty effective and it’s healthier for you,” Ryan stated.
CBD Serves Many Different Purposes
Through conducting a lot of research, the two know for certain CBD does have multiple uses.
“We always have everything we produce tested,” Alex said. Using laboratories in Maryland and D.C., every time they produce a batch of products, the guys receive a certificate of authenticity so people know for certain there is no THC and no other additives.
Both founders use CBD for different reasons. Alex uses it mostly for inflammation and focus, and Ryan uses it for pain.
“I’m very type A,” Alex told me. “I’ve always found it difficult to kind of shut up upstairs and focus. CBD allows me a legal way to acquire that avenue. I’ll drop some of it in my coffee in the morning and I’ve found it to calm me down and help me focus more during the day. It evens out the anxiousness.”
Ryan, a manual labor worker all his life, has found the compound to work wonders on whatever muscle or body part he overworks.
“My knees, my shoulders, my back, everything is always hurting from working hard all the time,” Ryan said. “CBD is a really good way to help with that pain and inflammation.
One of their customers’ sons has ADD, who has been taking CBD oil. The mom reports that it has been working greatly, and seems to be better than other things they have tried, such as traditional ADD medication.
“A lot of people think that you just immediately take it and every symptom is gone,” Ryan said. “You have to be somewhat knowledgeable on it and give it time to work its magic. Instead of noticing, ”˜My body feels like jello and this is great,’ you take it, and a little bit later you’re like, ”˜Oh my god, my knee stopped hurting. I can go for a walk.”
Like many people with headaches accustomed to popping an advil when they feel the pounding coming on, many people are replacing the over-the-counter medicine with CBD. Alex says he rubs CBD oil on his temples and the back of his neck when he gets a headache.
“About 20 minutes later, I noticed whatever my issue was – headache or anxiousness – it’s subsided,” he added.
Alex has also experimented with giving CBD to his dogs, which Ryan claims, “that’s when you really see it working – A dog that’s limping a bit, and then he isn’t limping anymore. It’s actually pretty wild.”
Alex has given CBD to his dogs for multiple reasons. He claims that it can take his “absolutely insane” dog down a level. He stated that he gives his other pup CBD for his hip dysplasia, and noticed that it greatly reduced his dogs level of pain.
Ultimately, It’s About Helping People
They are utilizing Doyle’s Oils by approaching doctors and veterinarians in Lexington, asking them to let their patients try the CBD oil out for themselves in lieu of traditional medication.
“We like to tell people – whether they are potential customers or not – to look for companies that offer those test results right up front,” Ryan said of proof of production practices.
Alex mentions they have a heavy hitter doctor as a big client, who says CBD is a great medium for his patients to help with ailments, while remaining as natural treatment.
“He really latched on to the idea because his customers don’t want to use traditional pharmaceutical medicine,” Alex said. “But they still have jobs that require drug tests, so it doesn’t put their job at risk.”
