Not only do we have low prices and high quality carrier oils, the growers and manufacturers of our Cannabidiol (CBD) and other Cannabinoids are the world’s ONLY hemp company to have been issued a Certificate of Free Sale and a Manufactured Food Establishment License by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE). Being licensed to operate as a Manufactured Food Establishment gives the manufacturer full capability to legally manufacture food products containing Cannabidiol CBD.
Passing the CDPHE’s inspection with a perfect score, they now hold not only all of the State’s current food and cosmetic licensing but have obtained through subsidiaries and ancillary companies:
• GMP Certification
• GPP Certification
• Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) licensing
• EU Pharmaceutical Manufacturing licensing
• Kosher and Halal certification
• ISO Certified Clean Rooms for processing and Research & Development
The extraction and purification facility has also been FDA-registered and meets all of the health, wellness, and food safety criteria, in its zone, that not only food distributors must meet, but they also strive to reach the standards of FDA-approved pharmaceutical manufacturers.
When it comes to creating a CBD distillate, - cannabinoids, terpenes, and ﬂavonoids are pulled from the vegetative material of the cannabis plant together though various extraction processes. In order to distill these compounds into their purest form, additional layers of reﬁnement must be executed. This process is known as “fractional” or “short path distillation.” These processes can produce single compound oils and isolated cannabinoids that can reach upwards of 99% purity.
In order to isolate compounds such as CBD into a pure and viscous oil, there are multiple layers of reﬁnement that must ﬁrst occur. Given that THC as well as other cannabinoids and terpenes are volatile and have varying boiling points, they must ﬁrst be separated from the cannabis plant via hydrocarbon or CO2 solvent-based extraction techniques. This process removes the valuable and volatile compounds from the plant itself, while many lipids and other compounds remain. This necessitates further reﬁnement through a process called winterization, whereby a solvent such as ethanol is used to solidify and remove the plant waxes and other undesirable compounds.
Apart from winterization, isolated cannabinoids can also undergo decarboxylation, by which the compounds are heated enough to activate certain specific medicinal effects. Finally, the material is run through a short path steam distillation or rational distillation chamber in a series of multiple passes to purify the cannabinoid to its isolated state.
Rigorous and frequent third party testing is followed to ensure that the critical attributes of taste, color, potency, and purity consistently meet quality control speciﬁcations for making phytocannabionoid-rich ﬁnished products.
