The World’s Best
Hemp-Based Products

Not all hemp is created equal, 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.

PharmaLeaf’s Process for the Highest Quality CBD

Step 1: Superior Farming

Every product PharmaLeaf creates starts with our natural proprietary strains of hemp that are high in CBD. All of the hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in the United States.

Our farmers operate under strict guidelines and we take advantage of state-of-the-art farming process. Not only does this enhance the quality of our natural proprietary strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unsurpassed in their potency and consistency.

Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing

The plants we use are dried and warehoused after they are harvested. When we need a plant for production, it is milled into a coarse powder. The milling process adheres to the highest standards in the industry. Once processed, it is shipped to our processing and manufacturing facility here in Colorado.

Step 3: Hemp Extraction & Purification Process

We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2, a commonly used method of extraction. This makes sure that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved in the process. The result? The highest quality broad spectrum hemp oil available.

While CBD on its own offers many benefits, a growing 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 further refinement, the hemp extract is separated from the supercritical CO2 used in the extraction process. Once this step is completed, the CO2 is recycled and used again in the distillation process.

Step 5: THC Removal and Refining

One of the most important steps in the process is to extract even the most minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in cannabis that produces the “high” associated with the plant.

We use proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds still present in the oil. These compounds include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished.”

As you can see on our lab reports, our products contain no detectable THC.

Step 6: Third-Party Lab Testing

Before we release any batch, it goes through rigorous third-party lab testing. We have set a new bar of testing in the industry. Every batch receives the most comprehensive testing available: microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), potency (ensuring what’s on the label is in the bottle), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) and pesticides (60 total).

Each of our products includes a QR code linking 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 particles are anywhere between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Our particles are around 25. This small 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.
