Step 1: Organic Farming
Every product Smilyn creates starts with our natural
proprietary strains of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. All of the hemp we use is
grown in nutrient-rich soil in Colorado. Our farmers operate under strict guidelines and use only 100% organic practices.We take advantage of a state-of-the-art
farming process. Not only does this enhance the quality of our natural proprietary
strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unsurpassed in
their potency and consistency.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
The plants we use are dried and warehoused after they
are harvested. When we need a plant for production, it is
milled into a coarse powder. The milling process
adheres to the highest quality standards in the industry.
Once processed, it is shipped to our processing and
manufacturing facility in Colorado.
Step 3: Proprietary Extraction and Solids Separation
We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process. This makes sure
that all of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes, terpenoids and flavonoids are preserved. It also gets rid of unwanted compounds while preventing
natural molecules from degrading. The result?
The highest quality full spectrum hemp oil available.
Every drop of our phytocannabinoid rich (PCR) hemp oil
contains 112 cannabinoids including CBD, CBDA, CBG,
CBN, CBC and THCA. You will also find a variety of
naturally occurring terpenes and flavonoids.
What it means for you is that Smilyn’s products contain
a full spectrum of beneficial natural compounds.
While CBD on its own offers many health benefits, a growing body of research
has found that a full spectrum product (a product containing other naturally
occurring cannabinoids and terpenes derived from hemp) leads to multiplying
benefits. This is called the Entourage Effect.
But the process isn’t quite done. Once extracted, the oil is then pressed to
separate most of the oil from the plant solids.
Step 4: Distillation
The oil is then distilled to separate the hemp extract
from the food grade ethanol used in the extraction
process. In fact, we are one of the few facilities in
the world that use this food grade ethanol.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
One of the most important steps in the process is to remove even the most
minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in hemp and cannabis that
produces the “high” associated with the plant.
We use a proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds still present
in the oil. These compounds include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace
amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and
“polished” to create the highest quality, zero
THC, full spectrum CBD oil available.
Because our products are 100% THC free, we
can ship them across state lines and to most
countries around the world.
Step 6: In House and Third-Party Lab Testing
We test every production run for quality and potency. This makes sure that all
of the cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients are
consistent and pure.
Every batch goes through rigorous testing in our in-house laboratory. When the
batch passes, it receives a Certificate of Analysis and a Certificate of Quality
Assurance that we make available to our customers. We also use third-party
labs on a monthly basis to verify and confirm the Certificates. And here’s the
great news: to date, not one batch has failed to meet our unprecedented testing
Step 7: Our Proprietary Nano Emulsion Technology
Some of our products require our oil to go through another processing step.
The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into
nano-sized emulsions. This makes it the most bioavailable full spectrum CBD
in the industry.
Our competitor’s hemp oil particles are anywhere between 150 and 5000 nano
nanometers in size. Our particles are 25-60. This small size gives them better
bioavailability, leading to much more effective absorption.
This nanoemulsion process can make our formulas
five times more bioavailable than oil-based products.
It also makes it four times more bioavailable than
other water-soluble hemp-based oils.
What does all of this mean for you?
You can use less of our product to achieve the same
level of benefit as the
products sold by most of our competitors.
We think that’s a reason to celebrate.
Better products, better value, better results. Because, like we said, not all hemp
is created equal, and neither are CBD products.
