Our process is simple. We use organically grown THC and CBD strains and extract using only CO2. We don't winterize our oil, which means we do not run any secondary processes with co-solvents like ethanol or hexane. This also means we don't have to purge anything that wasn't part of the plant from the start. We do have proprietary steps we use to turn the raw CO2 oil into the finished CO2 oil patients receive, but our oil is pure CO2 oil from start to finish. We believe oil that was extracted by CO2 but then de-waxed or winterized using solvents like hexane or ethanol to increase potency is no longer a CO2 oil. By only using CO2, which we reclaim and re-use in our process, we make the most concentrated oil we can while still keeping our oil as close to pure as the natural plant. CO2 is naturally occurring and exists in the Earth's atmosphere. Our bodies produce CO2 when we breathe. It is non-flammable, non-toxic, and approved for use in food by the FDA. With many other solvents used for extraction, toxins and heavy metals come in contact with the extracted oil and require additional purging to remove them. Isobutane, n-butane, isopropanol, ethanol, methanol, naphtha, mercaptan, propane, heptane, hexane, and pentane are some of these solvents which are being used in many extraction, refinement, and winterization processes to create some of the extremely potent THC cannabis oils available to patients. By not using any of those solvents and only using CO2, we are able to make a potent oil with a process that we feel is the cleanest and safest for patients. As we said, our process is simple. To us, less is more. The less solvents used and the less steps de-waxing, winterizing, and purging the oil, the more natural, purer, and more beneficial oil you will have as a result. Our oil is pure CO2 oil... for your health.
