Our Broad Spectrum CBD is from a production facility in the USA heartland Colorado, that operates in line with GMP (pharmaceutical standards). Our Full Spectrum CBD is sourced from organic farms in Slovenia, EU. We chose America and Slovenia as they have very high standards which create a much better infrastructure to produce the highest quality premium CBD. The production facility is supplied with plants from local growers who all share in the same philosophy of growing high quality pesticide free hemp.
Next, the plants undergo supercritical extraction, which is performed by heating and pressurizing Carbon Dioxide until it reaches a state known as supercritical (this means that it has properties of both a liquid and gas). Once in this state, the CO2 is able to "seep" into plant matter and retrieve individual chemical compounds.
Hemp oil manufacturers then use this supercritical CO2 to remove other cannabinoids from the plants, which is eventually infused into Coconut Oil with a high concentration of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). We use MCT oil as our carrier oil as it's absorbed better and provides greater bioavailability. Using MCT oil allows our CBD oils to be far more pleasant to taste.
From there, the solution still needs one more step before it can become the CBD you see here. It is frozen and refrozen at specific temperatures, allowing us to filter out undesirable cannabinoids - including any excess amounts of THC. Although, not all compounds are removed and this allows for our CBD to benefit from the Entourage Effect.
And that's it, we have our precious CBD Oil.
What is the Entourage Effect?
Mounting evidence suggests that medical substances may be more effective in their whole and natural state. This suggest that cannabis compounds such as CBD, CBN, CBC etc work better when taken together to produce a stronger influence than any one of those compounds alone. In other words, a proper cannabis extract should be more effective than CBD taken on its own. This is the entourage effect.
To test our CBD products We use one of the most advanced labs in the country and the results show that there is no THC in our Broad Spectrum CBD and less than 0.2% in our Full Spectrum CBD. Our products are tried and tested to ensure the critical attributes of potency, purity, taste and colour.
