Does it feel like you blinked and — boom — CBD and hemp oil are everywhere? Creating a revolution around hemp in the minds of millions wasn’t an easy task, but collectively, the Smilyn team in Carlsbad, California is doing it.
Smilyn CBD products all derive from a single source — hemp. The hemp plant known as the hardy weed once grown for industrial purposes like ropemaking, clothing, and building materials, has now transformed into holistic remedies for all types of ailments and pain management.
There are numerous benefits to hemp extract, including treatment to reduce inflammation, relieve chronic pain relief, depression, and more.
Pain, Pain, Go Away
According to the National Institutes of Health, pain is the number one reason Americans go to a medical clinic. Pain affects more people than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. There are a lot of worrisome details surrounding pain medication and their proven dangerous side effects. The alternative? Premium hemp oil extract.
Although the FDA has not officially approved it for pain relief, there is growing evidence of its effectiveness, and its side effects are far less dire. CBD operates all over the body to promote homeostasis and soother inflammation.
Premium Hemp Oil Extraction
Today, hemp plants grown for CBD are a new agricultural phenomenon. On average, hemp growers can extract eight pounds of oil out of every 100 pounds of raw biomass. So, how does it work? There’s an exact science to producing premium CBD oil, and every brand evaluates specific criteria when choosing theirs.
The non-intoxicating member of the cannabis family, hemp, contains less than 0.3% THC by dry weight and is crucial to the blossoming CBD industry. From seed selection and growing to harvest and extraction, Smilyn differentiates itself with its high-grade, premium hemp oil extraction process.
Let’s take a closer look at the process:
Step 1: Organic Farming
Every product Smilyn creates starts 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 strict guidelines and use only 100% organic practices. We take advantage of a state-of-the-art farming process. Not only does this enhance the quality of our natural proprietary strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unsurpassed in their potency and consistency.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
The plants we use are dried and warehoused after they are harvested. 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 in Colorado.
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 unwanted compounds while preventing natural molecules from degrading. The result? The highest quality full-spectrum hemp oil available.
Step 4: Distillation
The oil is then distilled to separate the hemp extract from the food-grade ethanol used in the extraction process. In fact, 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 important steps in the process is to remove even the most minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in hemp and cannabis that produces the “high” associated with the plant. We use proprietary technology to remove unwanted 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 create the highest quality, zero THC, full-spectrum CBD oil available. 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 and Third-Party Lab Testing
We test every production run 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 rigorous testing in our in-house laboratory. When the batch passes, it receives 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. And here’s the great news: to date, not one batch has failed to meet our unprecedented testing standards!
Step 7: Our Proprietary Nano Emulsion Technology
Some of our products require our oil to go through another processing step. 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 in the industry. Our competitor ’s hemp oil particles are anywhere between 150 and 5000 nanonanometers in size.
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.
