We use a proprietary supercritical CO2 extraction technique: the top standard for CBD extraction. This process involves exposing our organic hemp plant material to CO2 that has entered very low temperatures, and very high pressures. This eliminates the need for harsh chemicals, and ensures our plants are treated with the respect they deserve. The CO2 absorbs all of the phytocannabinoids, terpenes, plant-lipids, and plant oils from the hemp material.
Next, we put this paste-like CBD-rich extract through a further purifying technique known as ‘winterisation’. During this process, the extract is soaked in ethanol and then frozen in order to separate out the unwanted waxes, chlorophyll, and THC. This leaves us with a thick, dark, syrup-like product. This oil is then distilled: this removes volatites and residual oils and leaves us with our broad-spectrum CBD extract.
Our process is the cleanest and safest method for extraction and it leaves us with a beautifully pure CBD-rich extract. This extract still contains all of the desirable phytocannabinoids and terpenes from the powerful hemp plant, meaning it can provide us with the ‘CBD entourage effect’. In basic terms, this refers to the phenomena that occurs when a large combination of hemp plant compounds combine and ‘work’ together to produce a stronger influence in the human body, or a ‘synergistic effect’.
Terpenes are the aromatic oils found in plants; they provide plants with their unique scents and flavours, and - in the case of Hemp - can also provide powerful beneficial effects. These synergistic compounds greatly influence the effects of the cannabinoids to provide a result that you would not experience from CBD alone.
Our extract contains a minimum of 85% active CBD, and is 100% THC free.
Broad-Spectrum CBD extract contains a broad combination of the beneficial phytocannabinoids and terpenes found naturally in the Hemp plant, without the inclusion of THC. In contrast, Full-Spectrum CBD extract contains THC, and pure CBD Isolate contains none of these extra compounds: only pure CBD
Many companies claim that pure CBD isolate is the most effective form of CBD extract. It sounds appealing due to the fact it is ‘pure’, but this is not actually true! Broad-Spectrum extract provides us with a synergistic combination of some of the most powerful plant compounds in the world, which can provide the human endocannabinoid system with optimum support.
We want the plant’s natural cannabinoids and terpenes to be able to work together. We aim to harness the full scale of powerful effects that the Hemp plant can provide.
We take pride in knowing that our Hemp plants are grown organically in bio soil without the use of any herbicides, pesticides, or nasties. Hemp plants absorb toxins from the soil they are grown in; therefore it is essential that we use toxin-free, nutrient-rich soil composed of only organic biological material.
We believe it is extremely important to prioritise the quality of our products right through from cultivation, all the way to production. Organically grown materials are crucial to ensure a high-quality CBD product, and to provide our customers with the standard they deserve.
Our extraction and purification process uses a proprietary technology that preserves all of the beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, and plant lipids, whilst eliminating any unwanted trace of THC and chlorophyll.
All of our DR.K CBD products go through rigorous cannabinoid testing and the highest standards of quality control and assurance.
We use gas-chromatography mass-spectrometry (GCMS) techniques to consistently analyse the quality of our products. Our products undergo third-party cannabinoid testing to ensure accuracy and clarity across our entire CBD range.
Our lab testing techniques are utilised to ensure that all critical attributes - taste, colour, potency, purity, and cannabinoid containment - are all of the highest standard and consistency.
