Our hemp process
What is your CBD made from?
Our CBD is derived from organic hemp flowers. We extract the CBD from hemp using ethanol. The extract undergoes a purification process to remove unwanted fats, chlorophyll, and ethanol. Through further purification processes called distillation and crystallization, our extract becomes isolated CBD.
Where does your hemp come from?
Our organic hemp comes from our Olympic Mountain field farm and from our family farm in the Willamette Valley in Oregon.
What do you test for? Do you test for heavy metals or pesticides?
All Sativa Valley Essentials products undergo a comprehensive testing protocol to ensure our quality and safety standards are met. Our standards adhere to the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) monograph on Cannabis. While the testing requirements vary from product to product and the production stage, each batch undergoes multiple rounds of testing which include: cannabinoid potency, terpenes, heavy metals, pesticides, microbial contaminants and residual solvents. Prior to processing, our hemp is tested for potency, heavy metals, and pesticides. Post-extraction, the raw oil is tested for these same analytes as well as residual solvents. If refined into CBD isolate, an additional potency and residual solvent test is conducted. Then, all final batches are tested by a third-party laboratory for potency and quality analysis.
Do our CBD products contain any THC?
Sativa Valley Essentials products are available in Broad Spectrum and THC-free.
Broad Spectrum products contain high concentrations of CBD as well as a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes and other phytochemicals, and 0.0% THC. While our THC-free products are made with CBD isolate, trace amounts of THC are found in most hemp-derived CBD products.
