Extraction and Purification
Folium Biosciences produces Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil and Full Spectrum Hemp Oils by utilizing supercritical CO2 to produce an extract rich in terpenes, cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids. This extract is further subjected to winterization in ethanol and solvent removal through vacuum distillation, resulting in high-quality ingredients that have:
- Minor cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and all other compounds preserved
- Demonstrates strict safety requirements for solvents, heavy metals, and pesticides, passing all regulatory standards
Our patented techniques avoid exposing extracted products to high temperatures or adverse conditions, common with other manufacturers’ fractional distillation processes. This advanced approach preserves the plant’s terpene profile, eliminating potential degradation of cannabinoids and mitigating potential oxidation of other botanical compounds.
This rich blend of cannabinoids, terpenes, sterols, and flavonoids contained within our Hemp Oils together provide greater reactions that are essential for their efficacy and biological activity. You may anecdotally know this as the “Entourage Effect.”
0.0% THC means our Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil products generate absolutely no psychoactive effects or side effects associated with THC. Every batch of Folium Broad Spectrum Hemp Oil is tested to validate our 0.0% THC claim to satisfy an ever-increasing demand for non-psychoactive cannabinoid products.
Folium’s chromatographic purification process has been able to selectively remove the singular psychoactive component, Delta 9-THC. The absence of detectable THC is confirmed through Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) instruments. Our purification process is able to selectively remove Delta 9-THC while leaving intact most of the components of the oil, resulting in a hemp extract that is non-psychoactive while still delivering the collective benefits of all molecules.
