State of The Art Extract Lab
There are many ways to extract CBD and other cannabinoids from hemp with their own unique advantages and disadvantages. The three main ones are solvent extraction, steam distillation, and CO2 supercritical extraction. A solvent extraction process uses a solvent such as an oil or alcohol to extract the wanted cannabinoids from the hemp biomass. This method is cheaper, but often considered the dirtiest of the processes. It often leaves behind chlorophyll and other by-products that can affect the overall taste of the final product. Steam distillation is the next step up in the chain. This process may be more expensive, but it is also one of the cleanest methods. It uses hot water or steam to extract the wanted cannabinoids from the raw biomass but leaves behind many of the unwanted ones without the use of solvents. This results in a much cleaner extract that does not have such a harsh earthy flavor. The third one however is often considered the crown jewel of extraction methods. This is CO2 supercritical extraction and is done using very specialized equipment. It is by far the most expensive extraction method, but it also produces the best tasting and purest hemp extract on the market. When seeking an extraction company, we recommend going with the one that can provide you with this state-of-the-art extraction method.
Organic, Non-GMO, Vegan, Pesticide Free
You wouldn’t want to ruin your lovingly grown hemp with a sub-par extraction facility, would you? When looking for a company to perform your extraction be sure to find one that meets the highest organic, non-GMO, vegan, and pesticide-free practices. This will ensure that your finished product is free from harsh chemicals or toxic residues. Don’t chance your hemp to a second-rate company. Be sure to ask them for their certifications.
Can They Handle Your Crop?
Thinking small and local is usually the best bet with most things. However, when it comes to hemp extraction, sometimes smaller is not always better. Some smaller and fly by night companies do not have the right extraction equipment or methods as well as the ability to handle larger growers. When looking into the best hemp extraction services it is a good idea to make sure the company is well equipped to handle your crop promptly while also providing you with the highest quality extract.
Hemp Tolling Can Help You With Extraction Cost?
It is possible to find hemp extraction services that can cover the cost of the extraction in what is known as hemp tolling. This will oftentimes come down to the agreement between buyer and extractor but can split a variety of ways such as 60/40 or 50/50. Where the extractor takes 50% of the product to cover the cost and the grower gets 50% of the extracted material at no cost. This can sometimes be a great option for both the grower and the extractor as it prevents money from being exchanged and both receive a valuable service.
A hemp extraction service worth its weight will always have some testimonials or die-hard customers on hand. Always look into a hemp extraction service’s reputation and find out what others are saying about them. This may seem inconsequential to most, but it is a good idea to research a company you plan to do business with. Do not be afraid to ask them for references or client feedback. This simple step can help you shed light on some of the best extraction services in your area that fit your overall needs. In many cases, a good reputation should precede all of the others. Be wary of second-rate CBD companies that promise everything and deliver nothing. Bonus point! Use common sense. If a deal seems too good to be true, then it probably is. When looking into hemp extraction services it is wise to look into those qualities mentioned above and fully vet the service. When in doubt, be sure to ask around or ask them directly.
