Step 1: Pure Clean Farming

Our farms use the highest quality hemp that is grown in the USA; Our hemp is grown in Montana and Colorado farms. We use the highest quality extraction processes to create premium hemp extract and terpenes.

Our farmers take great care to ensure that no pesticides, herbicides, or other chemicals are used in the cultivation process and the highest farming practices are utilized.

Step 2: Raw Plant Processing

Once harvested, our hemp is then dried prior to processing which improves the quality of the final product. After the hemp is dried it is ground into a coarse powder using the highest standards in the industry. Following this step, it is then shipped to our facility for further processing.

Step 3: Our Extraction Process

During manufacturing, we use both medical-grade Ethanol extraction for our signature formulas and CO2 extraction method for our Full and Broad Spectrum formulas.

For our Full and Broad Spectrum formulas, we use a purification process that involves supercritical CO2. This makes sure that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are preserved in the process.

Our Signature Formulas utilize the Ethanol Extraction Process as they contain additional herbs and ingredients that are best processed with this method. This is the closest process to that used to produce this natural medicine in ancient times.

Our process utilizes the whole hemp plant, which current research has begun to show produces the most potential benefits. Utilizing the whole plant creates what is referred to as the Entourage Effect, which means that all the cannabinoids work together to create the most beneficial and potent effect possible.

Step 4: Separation

Following the previous step, the hemp extract is separated from the CO2 or Ethanol compound used in the extraction process.

Step 5: Refining

We use the most current and advanced technology available so that we are able to make the cleanest final product available. We do this by removing any unwanted compounds such as wax, chlorophyll, pigments, or any other trace materials.

Step 6: In House Third-Party Lab Testing

We currently use both In-House and Third-Party Lab testing for all of our products. You can find the test results for every batch/product on both our website and by scanning the QR code on any of our product boxes. Having these tests done ensures that our products are of the highest quality and provides proof of purity and consistency that is readily available to the public. Our tests also show that all of our products are free from microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium), and pesticides etc.
