Traditionally, Hemp has been bred specifically for its fiber. Optimized for making items such as clothes, rope, biofuel, and much more. When it comes to traditional hemp, most of the Cannabinoids (THC, CBC, CBG, etc…) are largely bred out of the plant in order to increase fiber production. Despite this, many brands in the CBD industry utilize this sub-par source for CBD production. Companies capitalize on this cheap alternative to create low quality CBD products to cash in on the boom in demand.
Here at 4 Corners Cannabis we strive to grow the highest quality hemp flowers on the market. Our fields are grown from clones to ensure high quality and a consistent spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. We use our solvent-based extraction method to draw out the most robust range of cannabinoids from the hemp plant possible, while preserving essential terpenes and flavonoids. We use USDA Certified Organic Sugar Cane Ethanol to extract the CBD oil from the plant matter. This is 95% drinking alcohol made from sugar. We do not recommend drinking alcohol this strong, however it is food grade and perfect for CBD extractions. Unlike hydrocarbon extractions such as propane, butane, heptane, hexane, etc. which are food prep safe, but not safe to consume. This is important to consider because, even with fancy Rotovaps, and vacuum ovens it is impossible to purge out 100% of the chemical used for CBD extraction. Is your health important enough to avoid putting CBD products into your body that contain toxins? 4 Corners Cannabis thinks so!
How does this method work? The oil is extracted from ground hemp flowers at very low temperatures and then it is triple filtered to remove any unnecessary plant materials. The resulting extract is then distilled to remove the alcohol from the finished oil, which is now ready to be incorporated into our products. Although this simple form of extraction has been common for many years, we have taken it to the next level with state-of-the-art lab equipment operated by trained chemists. Rest assured, any part of the plant that we don’t use is composted back into the soil to replenish nutrients for future growing seasons.
Our final product is a Complete Extract Cannabis Oil (CECO) containing over 60% CBD, and is one of the most highly regarded quality CBD products on the market! Don’t just take our word for it, try it yourself!
