Cannabidiol oil is derived from flowers of cannabis plants and is concentrated in its resin glands or trichomes.

Our hemp proves to contain less harmful materials than other CBD products, since we oversee the process from seed to sale. The active CBD available in the flower can be purified and concentrated using precise production techniques. When oil of high potency and concentration is derived from the glands then it can be used in lesser dosage. This lesser dosage saves money as CBD oil is an expensive product but produces the desired effect.
As the oil is in liquid form it can be consumed orally without smoking and can be easily administered to ailing children and adults. Though hemp is used for several industrial products and also as biofuel, the seeds and flowers of the plant are used to produce oil that is an active ingredient in several medical therapies for humans and animals.
Production of CBD oil
Industrial production of CBD oil is done by combining the cannabinoid rich plant with other compounds like CO², butane, ethanol or olive oil etc., all of which leave their residues in the final product. The most important part of CBD oil extraction is selection of right plant for the extraction of oil. Cost of final product will depend on its potency and purity which is controllable only via oil extraction technique.
