All of our Botanicol® products begin with our proprietary hemp plants grown exclusively in our network of licensed green houses and farms right here in the USA. Careful attention is given to every stage of cultivation. Once harvested our raw material is then subjected to further quality testing before it is dried and sent to our super critical CO2 extraction facility.
We employ super critical CO2 extraction to gently remove CBD-rich hemp oil from the aerial (above ground) plant parts for a number of reasons:
- By using super critical CO2 extraction we are able to preserve the natural constituents, that should be present for hemp oil to work as nature intended.
- CO2 is a natural molecule found abundantly in our environment. Super critical CO2 extraction means no harsh chemicals and no residual solvents.
- CO2 super critical extraction is safe and non polluting.
After we have extracted our CBD-rich hemp oil, it is again rigorously tested for pesticides, herbicides, fungi, mold, heavy metals and mycotoxins. We then blend our CBD-rich hemp oil extract with organic cold pressed hemp seed oil, and it becomes Botanicol®, a robust true hemp oil that utilizes all of hemp’s incredible health supporting constituents. Finally we bottle Botanicol at our state of the art GMP facility.
We firmly believe that our production capabilities in the USA and our total dedication to quality control is what sets Whole Botanics® apart from all other producers of hemp oil products.
