CBD Oil

This was perhaps the hottest growing MMJ product of 2014. It’s been known since the 1960’s that THC wasn’t the only active component in Marijuana and by the 90’s, doctors had discovered two separate cannabinoid receptors in the brain (use [cbd-oil] d for a natural cannabinoid produced in our brains called anandamide) and had come to realize that these “complimentary” cannabinoids played an important part in Marijuana’s medicinal properties as THC.

In 2007, an article published in The Journal of Chemistry and Biodiversity outlined the benefits of one in particular: Cannabidiol otherwise known as CBD. It appears to exhibit many of the desired medicinal properties found in marijuana without any psychedelic effects but unfortunately decades of selective breeding for THC have made CBD concentrations low in comparison to THC.

The most effective way to consume CBD is through concentrate… 

HOWEVER…There’s no feasible, practical way to separate CBD from THC so these oils are essentially regular extracts of “high CBD” strains of marijuana, some purporting to be as high as 17% CBD with little to no THC (<1%) (though such measurements are not particularly accurate and should be taken with a grain of salt). 

There has been some controversy with people selling hemp oil as a medicinal equivalent to CBD oil (since hemp is legal to ship anywhere in the US but CBD is not) but it’s well documented that hemp does not contain enough cannabinoids to have any beneficial effects.

Processing Overview
We utilize top of the line equipment, starting material and solvents in the production of our concentrates. Our process begins in a temperature controlled facility with the loading of high quality Cannabis flower into a closed loop system made by Subzero Scientific. We then use pharmaceutical grade n-butane to extract the medicinal resin glands from the fibrous plant material. After a broad range of paraffin reduction protocols we ensure our products are purged of residual hydrocarbons by the introduction of Organic cane spirits before our thermal energy application technique.

Extraction Services
We perform the exact techniques used in the production of our own concentrates for licensed OMMP growers at a standardized and agreeable rate. Ask about our services today!
If you own/operate a licensed dispensary this service is appealing to you, as it will give you incentive to refer growers to us for extraction. This can ensure the uniformity of product quality while increasing strain options on your shelves.

Decarboxylation
Our extraction process preserves the available cannabinoids found in the staring material. our standard Absolute Amber is primarily concentrated THCa or the acid form of tetrahydrocannabinol. THCa is a predominately non-psychoactive form of THC.

Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carbon atom and releases carbon dioxide (CO2) from the carbon chain. Usually, decarboxylation refers to the activation of THC by conversion of THCa to THC with heat, aging or other forms of degradation.

To create decarboxylated amber or high Potency cannabis oil, we take our purified, solid concentrate and apply heat at 240 degrees for a duration to ensure 99% decarboxylation of cannabinoids has been reached.
High Potency cannabis oil is a great addition to any chronic or life threatening disease treatments.
