Development and careful control in all aspects of our supply chain from farming to extraction and purification, product manufacturing, on-site laboratory testing, and bulk Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) hemp oil distribution. Complete vertical integration ensures the highest quality control for all of our PCR hemp oil (naturally high in CBD) products.
Our patent-pending hemp extraction process ensures the preservation of nearly all beneficial phytocannabinoids and terpenes while eliminating undesirable compounds, such as THC. Our state-of-the-art extraction and purification process ensures that our products contain all the synergistic compounds.
Our extraction method for Phytocannabinoid-Rich Hemp Oil is by two separate processes.
We employ supercritical CO2 and high quality ethanol extraction processes.
High CBD, low THC and high terpene plant genetics lead to high quality extract.
There are No External Additives
Closed and cold processes used to preserve terpenes and other desired volatiles.
The first process utilizes supercritical CO2 to produce an extract rich in terpenes, Cannabidiol (CBD), and other phytocannabinoids. This extract is further subjected to winterization in ethanol and solvent removal through vacuum distillation. After the chlorophyll, waxes, and THC are removed, the resulting product is a PCR hemp oil with 70-90% CBD, minor cannabinoids, and terpenes.
The second solvent-extraction process utilizes ethanol for extraction, followed by the same purification processes as the first, to remove chlorophyll, waxes, and THC. The only difference between the two processes is that the first step, extraction, utilizes different solvents; CO2 and ethanol, respectively. Not only is ethanol efficient in extracting CBD from plant material, it's classified as “Generally Regarded as Safe” by the FDA and is already used in many common foods and medicines.
THC removed to a non-detectable level of 0.0%
Other components like minor cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved
NO detectable solvents
Meeting regulatory requirements for heavy metals
Meeting regulatory requirements for pesticides
Irrespective of the process, the critical attributes of the oil (CBD %, terpenes, minor cannabinoids) remain the same. Since the extract from both processes undergo the same set of purification steps, the resulting hemp oil attributes remain comparable and similar from the two approaches. The resulting products possess the same level of quality and consistency. The PCR hemp oils are the same irrespective of the extraction solvents as the manufacturing is designed to arrive at the same quality attributes that are critical to our customers.
We work with independent labs across the country to test our Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) Broad Spectrum hemp oil. Accurately testing our products is of utmost importance to ensure our customers receive the highest quality products in the industry. This results in a final product that is completely free of solvents and meets regulatory requirements for heavy metals and pesticides. The independent labs that we work with are qualified and capable of accurately testing the critical aspects of our products using validated test methods necessary to meet our commitment to critical quality attributes.
All of our products have been tested and have a Certificates of Analysis. A Certificate of Analysis is a document issued by Quality Assurance that confirms that a regulated product meets its product specification. They contain the actual results obtained from testing performed as part of quality control of an individual batch of a product.
