Hemp is one of the oldest domesticated crops on earth. Unlike industrial hemp that is used for many purposes,our hemp is specifically grown for a single purpose - the extraction of CBD from its aerials parts(stalk, leaves, flowers). Our hemp has a unique chemical composition, sourced exclusively from top grade hemp. Our hemp is cultivated, harvested and processed in Colorado, USA. Through our partnership with experienced, knowledgeable and licensed farmers, we are able to acquire the most nutrient dense plants at the peak of potency.
Our hemp is organically grown outdoors, under natural sunlight and rainwater, as nature intended, unlike other companies that use hemp grown indoors under artificial light and with little or no soil. With deep roots, our plants utilize all the nutrients from fertile, mineral rich soil to produce hemp's full spectrum of natural constituents at their maximum levels. This careful and selective farming results in Octagon Biolabs high quality CBD products.
What is in Full Spectrum CBD?
Our hemp has a unique chemical composition. It is extremely rich in CBD and other cannabinoids with less than 0.3% THC. Therefore, our products do not have any negative effects associated with marijuana and THC use.With Octagon Biolabs CBD, you receive all the positive benefits of hemp’s full spectrum of components, with absolutely zero psychoactive effects.
Octagon Biolabs CBD products contain the full spectrum of cannabinoids including CBC, CBG, CBDA, CBN and others. Additionally, our extracts contain terpenes - organic hydrocarbons found in the essential oils of plants. Together CBD, other cannabinoids and terpenes allinteract synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an “entourage effect” that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plant’s individual components—so that the medicinal impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
What is the CBD Extraction Process?
Full spectrum CBD oil is a natural botanical extract of the hemp plant. Using a clean and pure extraction method known as supercritical CO2, our hemp oil is cold processed for maximum yield. Supercritical CO2 extraction ensures thatall the components of hemp remain potent, completely undenatured, and fully active. The extraction and cold separation processes preserve the full spectrum of active ingredients.
A supercritical fluid is a substance that has been heated and compressed beyond its critical point. In this form, it has the properties of both a gas and liquid. It can diffuse through solids like a gas and dissolve materials like a liquid.
The use of supercritical CO2 as an extraction method is ideal for botanical extracts. Although it is laborious and expensive, it is regarded as the best way to extract hemp oil due to its gentle action and high yield. Supercritical CO2 easily penetrates hemp cells and dissolves its phytonutrients. Because CO2 becomes a liquid at a low temperature (above 88F), the components in hemp remain unharmed and unaltered during the process. The CO2 is then evaporated, leaving a 100% pure hemp oil extract that is free of harsh chemicals, contaminants and toxins.
We have a strict quality control program that tests each batch of product. We maintainhigh standards of purity and potencyto deliver only the highest grade CBD. Our CBD and phytonutrient content is confirmed by independent laboratory tests.
Furthermore, a unique and proprietary nanoemulsion system enables us to boost the speed and degree of absorption well over competing products. The industry standard for sublingual delivery creates liquid droplets of 100 to 5,000 nanometers in size. Octagon Biolabs CBD oil droplets are emulsified to an incredible 25 nanometers. The miniaturized droplets means our extracts yieldhigher absorption, higher bioavailability and ultimately, higher effectiveness.
We have a strict quality control program including on site chromatography reviews and independent lab tests on each batch of product. These reportsconfirm that the components of hemp remain potent, completely undenatured, and fully active.We maintain high standards of purity and potency to deliver only the highest grade CBD.
