About CBD Isolate:
- 96%-99.9% pure cannabidiol (CBD) in crystalline form
- Industrial hemp-derived
- Organically grown hemp
- Every batch is 3rd party lab tested for:
- Cannabinoid potency
- Heavy metals
- Smell/taste – Odorless/flavorless
- Appearance – White/clear crystals
The Extraction Process:
The main steps – organically grown hemp is extracted with an ethanol extraction system. It is then winterized to remove fats. Next, multiple rounds of rotary evaporation are used to remove plant material and other unnecessary components. The extract is then decarboxylated and transformed into a crystalline structure with a proprietary post-processing technique. The last steps are to get the extract tested by third-party laboratories, package it and get it ready for shipment!

Most third-party laboratories willing to test hemp/cannabis cannot consistently or reliably detect cannabidiol (CBD) at the levels in this product. They are more efficient with testing full-spectrum extracts with lower percentages of CBD and other cannabinoids. All Certificates of Analysis (COAs) for our CBD Isolate have so far ranged from 90%-100% cannabidiol, but we are nearly certain every batch of extract has actually been above 99% pure. The extraction process is consistent and repeatable – the third party testing isn’t quite there yet. This is an industry-wide issue that affects every company offering similar products.
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) testing is much more precise than the standard High-Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), but because an NMR machine costs millions of dollars and is hard to come by in this industry, we only have limited access to one at a local university. The vast majority of NMR tests we’ve performed on our CBD isolate over the last several years have shown it to be over 99% pure cannabidiol, while standard industry HPLC tests have more variance and less reliability.
