The Farm & Genetics
The Unique Grow Operations.
Medicinal ESSENTIALS supplier is one of the largest hemp farms in the United States. Their unique genetics provides us with a highly competitive advantage in the global hemp derived Phytocannabinoid industry. They don’t plant seeds, they plant clones. Clones ensure a more consistent and reliable end product.
Specially bred cultivars, non-GMO and ORGAINICALLY GROWN with ZERO THC. Proprietary high cannabidiol CBD/low THC cultivar. Phytocannabinoid and terpenoid rich strain. Our hemp provides a rich full spectrum profile of all medicinally valuable and diverse phytocannabinoids & terpenes.
The best products start with the best ingredients. Our Supplier Grows a Unique Strain of Hemp that was specially bred from the most medicinally high cannabidiol strains of medical cannabis. These genetics evolved over a 7 year period in which the highest CBD and lowest THC plants were identified and cross bred. Because these plants produce naturally less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis, we were able to register our proprietary strain with the Colorado Department of Agriculture as industrial hemp.
Industrial hemp is defined by the US Government in section 7606 of the 2014 Federal Farm Bill as ANY Cannabis Sativa L. that produces naturally less than 0.3% THC on a dry weight basis. Folium Biosciences is one of the only companies in the United States that conforms fully to section 7606 of the Farm Bill. As a result our supplier’s Phytocannabinoid rich medicinal hemp is currently being used in several university studies including medical research for pain, inflammation, stress, cancer, auto-immune diseases, and neurological conditions.
Not all CBD is the same. True industrial hemp, characterized by its tall stocks is grown for its fibers which are the strongest plant fibers in nature. Industrial hemp is also grown for its seed which contain essential amino acids but no phytocannabinoids. This type of industrial hemp contains very few phytocannabinoids and limited amounts of other synergistic compounds. Our hemp, although registered as industrial hemp, is not derived from genetic industrial hemp, rather from a unique medicinal hemp variety, therefore providing the real health benefits of medical cannabis without the psychoactive effect of THC.
Extraction & Purification Process
We use the Complete Plant Profile. Our Extraction & Purification Process takes place at our 50,000 sq. ft. state of the art extraction facility. Their proprietary extraction technology allows for high levels of phytocannabinoids, while eliminating unwanted amounts of THC and chlorophyll. To achieve this, they utilize a chromatography technique which allows for the identification and complete removal of the naturally occurring trace amounts of THC from the oil, while leaving intact the full spectrum profile of non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids and synergistic compounds such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), and over 40 naturally preserved terpenes.
We utilize a rigorous testing system. On-site chromatography, chromatography testing, and 3rd party batch testing, ensures accurate levels of phytocannabinoids and confirms the absence of THC through our proprietary processes. The end result is the highest quality full spectrum hemp derived Phytocannabinoid rich oil that contains no solvents, no heavy metals, and no pesticides.
