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 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 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.
