The World’s Best
The quality of Hemp can range dramatically, which means not all CBD is the same. At PharmaLeaf, we believe that if you want to create the best products available, excellence must be a priority at every stage.
OUR CBD PROCESS
Step 1: Superior Farming
Every product PharmaLeaf creates starts with our proprietary strains of hemp that have a very high potency of CBD. All of the hemp we source is grown and harvested in nutrient-rich soil in the United States.
Our farmers operate under very strict guidelines utlizing state-of-the-art farming practices. Not only does this enhance the quality of our proprietary strains, but it also guarantees our products are safe, regulated, and unsurpassed in their potency and consistency.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
The plants we use are warehoused and dried after they are harvested. When plants are needed for production, they are milled into a coarse powder. Our milling process adheres to the highest standards in the industry. Once processing is completed, it is shipped to our processing and manufacturing facility in Colorado.
Step 3: Hemp Extraction & Purification Process
Our proprietary hemp extraction and purification process involve supercritical CO2, a regularly used method of extraction. This ensures that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, flavanoids and terpenes are preserved in the process. The result? The highest quality broad-spectrum hemp oil possible.
While CBD on its own offers a variety of benefits, an increasing body of research has found that many believe a broad-spectrum product leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the entourage effect. But the process isn’t quite done. Once extracted, undesirable plant solids like waxes are removed from the oil.
Step 4: Separation
Before additional refinement, the hemp extract is separated from the supercritical CO2 used in the initial extraction process. Once this step has been completed, the CO2 is recycled and used again in the distillation process.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
One of the essential steps in the process is to extract even the smallest traces of THC. We use our proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds still present in the oil. These compounds include chlorophyll, wax, plant pigments, and any trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished.”
As you can see on our independent lab reports, our CBD products contain no detectable THC.
Step 6: Third-Party Lab Testing
Our products go through rigorous third-party lab testing, before we release any batch setting a new bar of testing in the industry. Every batch of PharmaLeaf CBD receives the most comprehensive testing available: potency (ensuring what’s on the label is in the bottle), microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic) and testing for 60 different pesticides.
Each PharmaLeaf product includes a QR code link to both the internal lab reports on the raw oil and the third-party testing on the finished product.
Step 7: Our Proprietary Nanoemulsion Technology
Many of our competitors’ hemp oil products have particles ranging anywhere between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Our particles are only around 25. The smaller size leads to much more effective absorption. This nanoemulsion process can make our softgel formulas at least two times more bioavailable than oil-based products.
