THE PROCESS

Once harvested, our hemp undergoes testing for purity and CBD content. The plant material is then processed, on site, into a truly full spectrum crude hemp oil. We thoroughly extract the decarboxylated hemp using alcohol. The alcohol is gently removed by boiling under vacuum, leaving behind only CBD, terpenes and other plant materials. This crude hemp oil is typically 65% CBD and ideal for low concentration formulations like edibles, where taste and visual appeal are not concerns. We then process the crude oil to a distillate. Our highest potency hemp oil, it still retains terpenes and many other beneficial compounds along with the CBD but we have remove the chlorophyll and other heavier components that effect the color and flavor of the oil. The oil is refined using state of the art molecular distillation technology. This hemp oil distillate is typically 85% CBD and is ideal for vape pens, tinctures and other high potency formulations. We then process the hemp oil distillate to isolate. With greater than 99% CBD potency, this is some of the purest CBD available. Crystals are grown in a controlled process to produce small sizes of around 100 um to achieve the best bioavailability. This is ideal for those concerned with the THC content or psychoactivity of other hemp extract products as it does not contain any THC. One of the biggest advantages of cbdpharmbv’s CBD isolate is the fact that it is GMP certified. This is extremely important to the countless consumer brands that place their trust in us. As part of this process, we carefully control the size of our crystals. Many other producers look to grow large, novelty sized crystals but there are many disadvantages to this. First, large crystals will trap solvent inside of the crystal structure which cannot be removed and is typically in the 100-1000 ppm range. cbdpharmbv’s CBD isolate is tested at 0 ppm residual solvents. A second and very important advantage of smaller crystal size is better bioavailability. For edible and topical products, the amount of CBD that is absorbed into the body is proportional to the surface area of the isolated crystals. We control every parameter in the crystallization process in order to produce crystals in the size range of 50-150 micron. This gives us a very large surface area per gram of CBD. Many other manufacturers are producing CBD crystals in the 1000-2000 micron size range which will have much lower surface area per gram.
