Our CBD Extraction Process
Our commitment to the integrity of our brands has driven us to make careful decisions about how we grow, extract, formulate, and package our products. When it comes to protecting our customers, one of the most important choices we’ve made is using supercritical CO2 in our extraction process. Selecting this safe and environmentally sustainable method helps us provide our customers with the cleanest and purest CBD oil products possible. CO2 extracted CBD oil is another reason Budpak Health products is your trusted CBD Source.
How CO2 Extraction Is Done
Experienced and highly-trained lab technicians use state of the art equipment to achieve "supercritical" CO2 extraction. At its core, CO2 extraction is the act of creating phase changes in carbon dioxide by utilizing temperature and pressure.
CO2 is a tunable solvent, making it versatile and a perfect candidate for the "supercritical" process. The carbon dioxide is cooled and compressed to upwards of 10,000 psi (pounds per square inch), a high compression rate. By comparison, the tires on your car are pressurized to about 300 psi. When compressed to these extremes, CO2 becomes ‘supercritical’, which simply means that it converts to liquid when placed under extreme pressure.In this supercritical state, the CO2 possesses the properties of a liquid and gas at the same time. The CO2 is then heated and passed through the hemp in a closed loop extractor, without causing harm to any heat-sensitive nutrients like enzymes or vitamins. The result of this process is a released and recycled CO2 that leaves a highly concentrated, totally pure extract that is more easily digested by the body. The CBD oil that comes through supercritical extraction is a full spectrum cannabinoid product that is transparent with a light amber color.
Despite the fact that Budpak Health uses an extraction method that has been proven to be safe, we still take the time to quality check our products with our Triple Lab Tested process. We use certified labs to check our hemp oil at three points during the manufacturing process to confirm accurate CBD potency numbers and ensure it is free of residual contaminants like mold, mildew, heavy metals, and residual solvents. We go to these lengths because the safety of you and your family is our primary concern. That is why we are confident Budpak Health will be Your Trusted CBD Source.
