Not all CBD is created equal. If you want to make the best products possible you have to set a standard for what you produce. Once this is accomplished, you are then able to partner with like-minded individuals that can help you achieve your goal. Our goal was simple: Create the best CBD possible to help improve the health and daily life of others.
To advance our mission of producing the best organic full spectrum CBD products, we picked our partners very carefully. After extensive due-diligence, we chose to partner with the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of hemp-derived phytocannabinoids in the United States. Our partner makes the raw hemp compounds we use in our products. This partnership pools together the talents of some of the world’s leading scientists, chemists, veterinarians, formulators and specialists in the hemp industry. These experts consult with our industry-leading marketing and services group. The result? An assurance that the hemp extracts we use in our products is the utmost quality possible. Below is an overview of our exclusive and GMP Certified process used to manufacture American Exceptionalism CBD products.
Step 1: Organic Farming
Every CBD product we produce begins with our natural proprietary strains of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. All of the hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in Colorado. Our farmers operate under stringent procedures and use only 100% organic practices. We capitalize on our state-of-the-art farming process. Not only does this boost the quality of our natural proprietary strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unrivaled in their potency and consistency.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
After are plants are harvested they are dried and warehoused. When we need a plant for production, it is milled into a coarse powder. The milling process adheres to the highest quality standards in the industry. Once processed, it is shipped to our processing and manufacturing facility.
Step 3: Proprietary Extraction and Solids Separation
We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process. This makes sure that all of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids are preserved. It also gets rid of undesirable compounds while stopping natural molecules from degrading. The result? The highest quality full spectrum hemp oil available.
Every drop of our phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp oil contains 112 cannabinoids, including CBD, CBDA, CBG, CBN, CBC and THCA. You will also find a variety of naturally occurring terpenes and flavonoids.
While CBD on its own offers many health benefits, an increasing amount of research has found that full spectrum CBD (a product having other naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes derived from hemp) leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the Entourage Effect.
Step 4: Distillation
The oil is then distilled to separate the hemp extract from the food grade ethanol used in the extraction process. We are one of the few facilities in the world that use this food grade ethanol.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
One of the most vital steps in the process is to eliminate even the most minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in hemp and cannabis that produces the “high” linked with the plant.
We use a proprietary technology to eliminate undesirable compounds still present in the oil. These compounds include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished” to produce the highest quality, zero THC, full spectrum CBD oil possible.
Because our products are 100% THC free, we can ship them across state lines and to most countries around the world.
Step 6: In House & Third Party Lab Testing
Every production run is tested for quality and potency. This makes sure that all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients are consistent and pure.
Every batch goes through arduous testing in our in-house laboratory. When the batch passes, it is given a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality Assurance that we make available to our customers. We also use third-party labs on a monthly basis to verify and confirm the Certificates.
Step 7: Proprietary Nano Emulsion Technology
Some of our products require our oil to go through another processing phase. The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into nano-sized emulsions. This makes it the most bioavailable full spectrum CBD available.
Our competitor’s hemp oil particles are anywhere between 150 and 5000 nanometers in size. Our particles are 25-60. This small size gives them better bioavailability, leading to much more effective absorption.
This nanoemulsion process can make our formulas five times more bioavailable than oil-based products. It also makes it four times more bioavailable than other water-soluble hemp-based oils.
What does all of this mean for you? You can use less of our product to achieve the same level of benefit as the products sold by most of our competitors. We think that’s a reason to celebrate.
