From each plant, James and Loughney will harvest about one pound of dried product. They get about two liters of CBD oil from three pounds of dried hemp.
“We take the material to a lab for extraction, using a method called supercritical carbon dioxide extraction to create a super clean oil,” said Loughney.
Hemp has been cultivated for 10,000 years, making it one of the first and oldest known human agricultural crops. CBD, or cannabidiol oil, has a wide spectrum of beneficial qualities without the psychoactive “high” that comes with marijuana.
“Our mission is to provide top quality CBD products that remain accessible and affordable to everyone,” states its web site. “We use regenerative organic farming practices to ensure that the health of our ecosystem improves every year. We source organic and fair-trade ingredients to complement our growing standards.”
