CBD oil has become a popular natural supplement due to its many potential health benefits. There are various methods for extracting CBD oil from hemp, and one of the most effective and environmentally-friendly methods is CO₂ extraction. In this article, we will take a detailed look at how we, at Phyto Plus®, make CBD oil using SuperCritical CO₂ extraction, also known as the "Clean Air" method, using 100% natural hemp from our Scandinavian hemp fields.

Step 1: Hemp Selection

The production process of CBD oil starts with the selection of high-quality organic hemp. For the "Clean Air" method, hemp is grown in hemp fields in Scandinavia. Scandinavian countries are known for their strict environmental standards and sustainable farming practices, resulting in high-quality hemp.

Step 2: Harvest and Drying

The hemp is harvested and hand-selected to ensure the quality of the plants. After harvesting, the hemp plants are carefully dried to reduce the moisture content and optimize the quality of the oil. This is done naturally, without the use of harmful chemicals or heat.

Step 3: SuperCritical CO₂ Extraction

The dried hemp is then used for CO₂ extraction. SuperCritical CO₂ extraction is a process where carbon dioxide is used to extract CBD from the hemp plant. This is a highly efficient and safe method that does not leave behind any harmful solvents or chemicals in the final product.

In the "Clean Air" method, the highest purity CO₂ is used to ensure that no contaminants end up in the CBD oil (CBD extract). The CO₂ is pressed through the hemp plants under high pressure and low temperature, separating the CBD from the other components of the plant.

Step 4: Filtration and Purification

After CO₂ extraction, the obtained oil is filtered to remove any impurities. This process ensures that the CBD oil is pure and of high quality. No chemical substances are used in the filtration and purification, resulting in a natural and clean product.

Step 5: Mixing with Hemp Seed Oil

To produce Phyto Plus® CBD oil drops, the pure oil (extract) is then mixed with hemp seed oil. To work as efficiently and environmentally friendly as possible, we utilize all parts of the plant. The hemp seed oil we use is derived from the seeds of hemp plants from the same harvest. Hemp seed oil is rich in nutrients and has an optimal ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which makes the CBD oil even more valuable. Mixing the CBD oil with hemp seed oil creates a well-balanced and nutritious end product.

Step 6: Quality Control According to GMP

Before the CBD oil is packaged and brought to market, the product undergoes thorough quality control according to the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standard. This includes testing the CBD content, checking for any contaminants such as heavy metals, mycotoxins, and over 300 different pesticides, and ensuring the overall quality and purity of the product. Only when the product meets the stringent quality standards, it is prepared for packaging.

What is GMP?

GMP stands for Good Manufacturing Practice, which in Dutch translates to "Goede Productiepraktijken." GMP is a set of strict guidelines and standards applied in the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, and related industries to ensure that high-quality products are produced and meet the required safety and quality standards.

GMP regulations cover various aspects of the production process, such as the design and construction of production facilities, qualification and training of personnel, documentation, and recording of production activities, control of raw materials, validation of production processes, hygiene and cleaning procedures, and control of the final product. The aim of GMP is to ensure that products are safe, consistent, and of high quality, suitable for their intended use, and compliant with applicable regulations.

We, Phyto Plus®, are GMP certified. For companies involved in the production of CBD oil, adhering to GMP guidelines can be of great importance to ensure the quality and safety of their products. By complying with GMP standards, producers can ensure that their CBD oil is produced according to the highest standards of quality, purity, and safety and that the product meets the expectations of consumers and regulatory agencies. Complying with GMP guidelines can also help increase consumer confidence and strengthen the company's reputation.

Step 7: Packaging and Distribution

Next, the CBD oil is packaged in dark glass bottles to maintain its quality and minimize oxidation. The bottles are labeled with all relevant information about the product, such as CBD content, origin of the hemp, and recommended dosage.

After packaging, the CBD oil is distributed to various points of sale, such as pharmacies, health stores, and online shops, to be made available to consumers who are looking for a high-quality CBD product.
