Over the last several years, talk of cannabis oil has increased not only here in the UK, but globally as well. However, few people realise that many authentic, CBD-rich products are made from hemp – including our products here at Provacan.
As a distinct phenotype of the cannabis plant family, hemp contains little THC (typically under 0.3% by dry weight) yet is abundant in CBD. Utilising the proper closed-loop extraction techniques, this CBD can be pulled from the raw plant material and infused into a cannabinoid-rich oil for daily support.
But what goes into making a truly authentic, top-quality CBD oil?
The first – and likely the most important – contributing factor to quality CBD oil is the hemp that the CBD comes from. Like any other plant family, massive variations and phenotypic distinctions can exist among various hemp cultivars. This is why, at Provacan, we invest huge amounts of resources into finding and utilising only the purest, most CBD-rich strains of hemp in the UK and EU.
We ensure that all of our hemp is organic, and is grown on EU farms. Why? The EU boasts some of the most strict organic agriculture regulations in the world; this results in cultivation of the cleanest, healthiest, purest plants possible. Naturally, this is the very first step that must be taken in order to extract and manufacture the most potent and effective CBD oil possible.
The Importance of Precision Extraction
Of course, even the best and most CBD-rich hemp plants in the world will go to waste if the cannabinoids within are not extracted with the most advanced equipment possible. At Provacan, we utilise precision closed-loop CO2 (carbon dioxide) extraction techniques that result in an initial raw tincture that contains a full-spectrum of hemp compound extracts.
In addition to the natural CBD content, Provacan full-spectrum CBD oils contain additional beneficial phytocannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, and CBG. In order to maximise product transparency, we offer lab sheets on each one of our products that you can view to see exactly what’s in each bottle — and exactly what’s going into your body.
