Step 1: Organic Farming
It all starts with natural phytocannabinoid-rich hemp, grown in the United States. Our commitment to a 100% organic process means that farmers follow strict guidelines – 100% of the time.
The state of the art farming process enhances the quality of our natural proprietary strains while ensuring safety. The potency and consistency of our hemp is unparalleled.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
Following the harvesting process, the plants are dried and warehoused. Maintaining the highest industry standards, the plant is transformed into a coarse powder during the milling process. It is later shipped to a facility in Colorado to be processed and manufactured.
Step 3: Proprietary Extraction and Solids Separation
The proprietary process of hemp extraction and purification involves CO2, a common method of extraction. This ensures the preservation of all of the beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. This process also allows for the removal of unwanted compounds while sustaining the natural molecules in the plant. As a result, we are able to offer the highest quality hemp oil on the market.
Naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids and amino acids comprise every drop of our phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) hemp oil. The wide spectrum of compounds means that you will enjoy the benefits of many of the cannabinoids that are present in the hemp plant.
As research on CBD has continued, it has been noted that a phytocannabinoid-rich product (a product containing other naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes derived from hemp) offers cumulative benefits. This is known as the Entourage Effect.
Following the extraction process, the hemp oil is pressed which separates undesirable components of the plan, such as waxes, from the oil.
Step 4: Distillation
The distillation process is employed in order to remove the food-grade ethanol that is used in during the extraction process. We are proud to use one of the few facilities that incorporate the use of food grade ethanol in the process.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
Removal of all traces of THC is one of the most critical steps in the process. The THC compound is responsible for producing the ‘high’ that is associated with the hemp plant.
The proprietary technology used allows for the removal of all of the unnecessary compounds that are present in the hemp oil. These include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and small amounts of THC. The next part of the process involves ‘polishing’ during which the oil is washed – this allows the creation of the highest quality, THC-free CBD oil.
Due to the fact that our products are 100% free of THC, shipping anywhere in the US is permitted.
Step 6: In House and Third-Party Lab Testing
Every production run is tested for quality and potency in order to make sure all of the ingredients (including cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients) are pure and consistent.
The in house-laboratory rigorously tests every batch. A Certificate of Analysis is granted after each batch passes the tests, which are available for our customers to review. We further ensure the quality by employing third-party labs confirm and verify these certificates.
Step 7: Our Proprietary Nanoemulsion Technology
The raw hemp oil undergoes another proprietary process to transform it into nano-sized emulsions. This extra process makes the hemp oil one of the most bioavailable CBD products on the market.
The particles are 25 to 60 nanometers, as compared to our competitors’ whose products have particles that range in size anywhere from 150 to 5,000 nanometers. The smaller size of our particles facilitates a higher degree of bioavailability which results in significantly better absorption.
The process of nanoemulsion creates twice as much bioavailability in our softgel formulas compared to oil based products.
Why is this significant to you? You will utilize a smaller volume of the product with the same level of benefit compared to the larger amount that you would need to use if you purchased a competitor’s product. Saving money is always a reason to celebrate!
The value in our products are proven by their outstanding results. Not all hemp is created equal, and neither are all CBD products
