Our CBD and extraction:

We source our FULL SPECTRUM Hemp Oil Extract/CBD from both the USA and Europe:

In Colorado we use our state-of-the-art food grade ethanol extraction process we are able to maintain the health benefits of a whole plant extract, which means our oils contain all the naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes, not just CBD (cannabidiol). Kosher 190 proof alcohol used for extraction. Alcohol extraction maintains the entourage effect and keeps more terpenes in the finished oil. Our Full-Spectrum Oil is the most raw, yet beneficial form or hemp extract.

 In Europe, our partners nonGMO cultivars of industrial hemp are grown on European farms adhering to strict eco-farming standards. The oil is derived from the aerial parts of certified European hemp, super critical CO2 extracted without organic solvents to yield a pure, proprietary hemp extract that preserves the native phytocannabinoid profile including CBD, CBG, CBN, etc. and other minor phytocannabinoids.  We offer new cultivars and other botanicals that express nice levels of other phytocannabinoids and terpenes that can help differentiate the “single magic bullet” CBD products in the marketplace. The product is EU Certified, USDA Organic, Kosher Certified and Halal Suitable. The facility is ISO 9001 compliant and HAACP certified.

We never use No CBD isolates, which may be considered illegal drugs by DEA and FDA
