A little update for you on our extraction process!
What is supercritical CO2 extraction?
To retrieve all of the beneficial cannabinoids from the hemp plant, including CBD, it has to be extracted. With supercritical CO2 extraction, it works by only using pressurized air at extremely low temperatures without the use of any chemicals. A lot of other companies will use toxic solvent extraction methods, which isn’t deemed as safe since it could leave residual traces of chemicals in the final product. In the CO2 extraction process, we can assure you that there will not be traces of any harsh solvents in the final product as we do not use them in our extraction process.
Why does the oil color look lighter than usual?
Not only are we on a mission to change what healthy means for pets, but we are constantly making strides to improve our already high-quality standards and USDA Organic ingredients. We recently upgraded to new, state-of-the-art equipment for our CO2 extraction process. This improvement allows us to eliminate even more plant material, such as chlorophyll and plant waxes. Although it may result in the oil not being as dark, this does not mean that it doesn’t have any of our full spectrum hemp extract in there. If you were to give it a taste, you would notice there is still a hemp flavor. As we also have our own hemp strain, PR-33, there will always be slight variations in color of the final product.
What colors can you expect to find?
Our standard Hemp Oils can often look like either an amber, yellow, or clear.
Let’s compare to Kombucha!
As many kombucha products also contain a lot of raw, all-natural ingredients, they too can vary in different colors. If you were to line up 20 different bottles of kombucha, there is bound to be variance in the color consistency. Just like we use raw, organic ingredients ourselves, you can expect a similar variation in our products as you would with your favorite kombucha brand.
