If the process is clean and pure, so is the product.
Our process at SHRUBSS is a transparent one from soil to oil. It's based on the highest principles of integrity for the product and the earth. Our promise is that all of our products have THC levels below a 0.3 percent.
CBD starts with the hemp plant. How the plant itself is grown is an important part of the story, but not the whole story. After it is harvested, the hemp has to go through an extraction process. After that, comes purification. All three stages should be taken into consideration when evaluating the quality of a CBD oil.
Quality Farming Practice
SHRUBBS products are created with natural proprietary strains of hemp that is high in CBD. Our USA farm partners operate under strict guidelines while using state-of-the-art farming processes. The reason for this is to insure that the qualities of our natural proprietary strains are never compromised. All of our crops are grown in nutrient-rich soil without fertilizers to promote ecological balance and conserve biodiversity. We adhere to the strictest quality standards that is non-GMO, animal cruelty-free, and no pesticides. Our growers use the aerial parts of the hemp flower.
The proprietary strains that we use are naturally and carefully cultivated over time to contain high levels of CBD and terpenes (the aromatic oils in the plant) and very low levels of THC.
The Extraction Process
SHRUBSS products undergo the highest, cleanest, and safest standards when it comes to extraction. At our facility, we are cGMP compliant. That means we follow the highest standards for manufacturing.
We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2, a commonly used method of extraction. This makes sure that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved in the process.
The Purification Process
The purification process employs no solvents, metals, or any other chemicals that could harm the plant, the CBD, or the end-user. THC is completely extracted in this step, as are impurities such as chlorophyll and waxes, as well as all potential contaminants.
Extreme heat is never used in the purification process since high temperatures could harm or destroy the beneficial compounds we worked so hard to preserve in the extraction process. The end product contains 0 parts per million of any impurities or solvents, including ethanol.
SHRUBBS products are best-in-class because we adhere to the highest standards of farming, extraction, and purification. The raw product is organically grown and care is taken to ensure extraction uses the highest-grade solvents, and that purification removes the impurities while leaving over only the highest quality CBD.
Third-party product testing is when an independent company (aka, the third party) is hired to lab test a product sample for quality and safety. They assess whether contaminants are present and determine the amount of CBD in each product.
At Shrubss, we publish our third-party results on our site so our customers can be assured that all the promises we are making about our CBD oil are independently verified facts.
