Food, beverage and supplements industry veteran Tricia DiPersio, PhD, RD, has joined the executive team at Folium Biosciences as the company’s first EVP of Quality, Compliance and Customer Relations.
Hemp-derived non-psychoactive cannabinoid manufacturer Folium Biosciences and premium-ingredient sales and marketing company Nutralliance have entered a distribution partnership that grants Nutralliance the right to distribute Folium’s industry-leading 0.0% THC broad spectrum CBD oil products in the United States, and establishes Folium as Nutralliance’s exclusive CBD supplier.
Folium Biosciences has completed buildout and received a Certificate of Occupancy for the world’s largest cannabinoid extraction and purification facility, located in Pueblo West, Colo.
The new 110,000-square-foot Pueblo West facility will produce up to 22,000 kg of 0.0% THC broad spectrum CBD oil each month. To satisfy accelerating demand from CBD product manufacturers worldwide, the plant has dedicated production lines to meet CBD regulatory requirements in the US, EU, Japan, and South Korea, among other countries.
FDA registered and state-of-the-art, the new Folium facility is purpose-built for extraction, purification and formulation of cannabinoids and terpenes. The plant will utilize supercritical carbon dioxide (sCO2) extraction technology exclusively to produce phytocannabinoid-rich 0.0% THC broad spectrum CBD oil, adhering to a continuous process from decarboxylation to extraction that allows for a revolutionary inline terpene capture system.
