The Importance of Knowing Where Your CBD Comes From

The Importance of knowing where your CBD comes from hero image

Like many folks, you may have wondered at some point, where your CBD comes from? Or where does the hemp come from that is used for extraction in CBD products? Most people know that the CBD oil is derived from the hemp plant, but there’s more to think about. You should want to know how the hemp is cared for – from planting to harvest, all the way to when it’s bottled as CBD oil. You need to be sure that what you are putting into your body is of excellent quality and from a safe, reliable source.

Potential Heavy Metals in the Soil Where Your CBD Comes From

Get ready; this might be a wakeup call. Did you know that some hemp farms operate on land that contains harmful heavy metals? Yikes! There are a few ways that heavy metals can end up in the soil. Mining, manufacturing, and the use of synthetic products such as pesticides are common causes, and plants can absorb these metals from the soil around them. Heavy metal poisoning can range from acute to chronic. Kentucky’s Best Hemp is grown in Kentucky, in areas that have not been treated with pesticides. 

We make sure the land used to produce our hemp is a clean, safe property. Even if farmers are not currently treating their plants with harmful pesticides, chemicals can be leftover in the ground from the past. Land that now produces hemp may have grown other crops that were previously treated with chemicals. This is why we have our land tested for harmful materials: for peace of mind about where your CBD comes from. Safety first! Seriously, your health is important.

What Happens to Hemp After It Is Harvested?

At the end of the growing season, it’s time to harvest! Once the hemp is harvested, the CBD oil needs to be extracted. Just like anything you ingest, it must be handled in a sterile environment. Some companies that have popped up quickly and cheaply are not following steps to ensure the health of their consumers. Here at Kentucky’s Best Hemp, we care about our customers, so that is why we use the safest methods possible during production.

After harvest, we use supercritical carbon dioxide extraction; this amazing process isolates individual compounds of the hemp plant. Supercritical CO2 fluid extraction (SFCE) gives us a clean and consistent product that our customers deserve.
