In the commitment to providing you safe and high quality cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil, Medical Marijuana, Inc. has built many of its manufacturing practices and procedures from scratch. Your health is our top priority, as is your trust in us to produce all-natural cannabidiol (CBD) hemp oil, which has come about after years of testing and research.
In order for us to create products – such as Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ (RSHO™), which we formulated in 2012 – to meet the quality and safety criteria that you expect and that are now standard in the industry today, we meticulously did the following:
- Searched to isolate the ideal cultivar (variety) of hemp
- Cultivated that hemp under conditions that would cleanly yield a crop high in CBD
- Established rigorous extraction and testing standards
Here’s an overview of how we produce the best CBD oil on the market:
Natural Source of High-CBD Hemp
Our commitment to making quality CBD hemp oil begins with our all-natural hemp plants. With no path in front of us to follow in this industry, our own researchers were tasked with discovering the most optimal variety of hemp for CBD. The chemical makeup of hemp varies between cultivars – some contain more CBD than others – and it took our team of researchers testing 3,000 different possible hemp varieties before they were able to identify the strain that would flourish in the perfect microclimates and provide the ideal cannabinoid content.
All of the hemp plants used for our CBD products are cultivated from certified non-GMO seeds, meaning they haven’t been genetically modified. Our cultivars of hemp contain everything you need and expect in the industry’s best CBD oil:
- Fatty acids
Clean Growing Practices
To ensure the health and viability of our plants, a farming cooperative of 750 families utilizes generations-old cultivation techniques to carefully grow our hemp varieties in the ideal climate of northern Europe.
Our families of growers have helped us set the standard for sustainable and safe hemp cultivation by growing our crops without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or chemical fertilizers. This makes our hemp oil products as safe as possible right from the earliest stages of our process, which helps protects customers from residual contaminants. Our choice not to use dangerous chemicals is also a healthy option for the environment, as it prevents toxic residuals from leaching into nearby soil and water sources.
Non-Toxic and Safe CO2 Extraction Process
Once our hemp is harvested, we use a supercritical CO2 extraction process to safely extract the CBD-rich hemp oil from the plants’ mature stalks and seeds. Supercritical CO2 refers to a fluid state of carbon dioxide that is held at or above its critical temperature and critical pressure. The stability of the CO2 allows hemp oil to be extracted with little damage, and because of its low toxicity and environmental impact, the supercritical CO2 method has become commonplace in the food industry.
While using supercritical CO2 to extract hemp oil oils can be more costly and requires greater skill to do correctly, it offers a more reliable and safer way to extract pure hemp oil. Other chemical solvents can linger in the extracted oil if they’re not purged correctly.
Triple Lab Testing®
While our supercritical CO2 extraction method has proven to be safe, the CBD hemp oil found in our products also undergoes a stringent testing process after extraction to ensure its cannabinoid content and make sure that it’s free of mold, mildew, heavy metals, and residual solvents.
Our rigorous Triple Lab Testing® process, the strictest testing process in the industry, involves independent laboratories examining our hemp oil three separate times during production:
- Once the CBD hemp oil has been extracted from the hemp plant
- After the CBD hemp oil is imported from Europe, it’s tested by an accredited, independent laboratory
- Samples from every batch of our finished CBD hemp oil products are sent to our formulator for a final test
Rest Assured at the Quality and Safety of Our CBD Products
Our finished products, including our CBD tinctures, capsules, and topicals, are created at Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) certified facilities, which are regulated and enforced by the FDA to ensure products will be safe and that they meet quality standards.
At each stage, our CBD hemp oil is tested to verify its CBD content and safety. It’s because of these testing standards that we are always confident that our manufacturing process produces the best CBD oil products.
