How Earth's Releaf is
The Earth’s Releaf Extraction Process
Our manufacturing partner uses ethanol extraction instead of CO2 because it enables them to produce a greater volume of THC-free CBD per day. They then rotovapor off and recapture the ethanol for later use.
The first step in ethanol extraction produces an oil that is very viscous and dark green. This material is then winterized (chromatography) to remove unwanted plant phytochemicals, i.e. chlorophyll and cellulose. This separates out the cannabidiol and other terpenes.
They then decarboxylate ( a heating process) the cannabinoids from their natural acid form of CBDa, into the bio available CBD. This allows it to interact directly with the endocannabinoid system in your body.
Next comes the distillation stage and the factory takes its full spectrum distillate into 98% CBD isolate through a process of crystallization. This removes everything from the oil except pure CBD and a non detectable trace of THC, which makes this an isolate CBD-only product.
The formulation department then uses hempseed oil to reach the desire CBD milligram level. Earth’s Releaf requires certain specifications to our manufacturer, which are followed
contractually to insure the potent, concentrated, all hemp product we require.
