CBD Oil Lab Testing
Our goal is to ensure that all of our customers receive high grade, strong CBD oil. We extract CBD oil from industrial hemp that is specifically bred to be high in CBD and low in THC
Lab Testing of all our batches of CBD Oil
Every batch of our CBD oil is lab texted by Pro Verde Laboratories and Chem History. If the CBD oil is not within + or – 5% of the desirable level we send the batch back to our suppliers and tell them it is not within an acceptable CBD concentration.
Also we check the lab results to ensure the trace elements (cannabinoids) are at the right levels for THCV, D9-THC, CBDA, THCV, CBDV, CBN, CBGA and CBC. It is especially important to make sure that there is less than .5% THC to ensure that people who use CBD do not have to worry about failing drug tests or getting high.
We also make sure that the CBD oil passes the pesticides and microbials (bacterial) tests.
In reality every batch will vary in terms of CBD concentration and other cannabinoids. We make sure our customers receive the highest quality, strong CBD Oil supplements. That are a medical grade and free from any dangerous chemicals or bacteria.
So our customers can rest assured that they will always receive the highest quality, organic CBD products.
We make sure that we only source premium, high concentrated CBD hemp plants. Then we ensure that our extraction process is of the highest standards. Finally we follow up with rigorous lab testing. The end result is our customers always receive the best CBD supplements.
Extracting CBD Oil from Hemp
It is vital that high concentrated CBD oil with all the trace elements and nutrients are extracted from hemp plants which are bred to have high concentration of CBD (42% CBD).
Our CBD oil extraction process is safe, sustainable, gentle and environmentally friendly.
The potency, safety and even cost of your cannabis oil are largely determined by the quality of the extraction method. Strong CBD Oil products contain cannabis oil extracted using a supercritical CO2 extraction method rather than chemical solvents that can leave behind dangerous residues. This process uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to isolate, preserve, and maintain the purity of the medicinal oil. It requires expensive equipment and a steep operational learning curve but, when done well, the end product is safe and potent.
Many cannabis product-makers use chemical solvents—butane, hexane, isopropyl alcohol, ethanol, etc.—to extract oil from the cannabis plant. These methods are a lot cheaper and easier than CO2 extraction. Unfortunately, they can leave behind residual toxins, which can be especially harmful to patients whose immune systems are compromised.
Another advantage of CO2 extraction is that it retains many of the plant waxes, which offer significant health benefits. Our vape pen cartridges are filled with a highly refined cannabis oil concentrate without any wax, as is appropriate for an inhaled product.
One of the criticisms of supercritical CO2 extraction is that the heating process can destroy the terpenes. (Terpenes are the molecules that give cannabis with its distinct smell.) These aromatic compounds have significant health benefits. We use various methods, including a slower heating process, to improve and increase terpenes. Low extraction temperatures ensure that the full spectrum of beneficial molecules is preserved.
