Hemp oil is a liquid composed of carbon dioxide and CBD, extracted from hemp plants. It is made through various extraction processes, such as ethanol extraction, supercritical CO2 extraction, and cold-pressed hemp oil extraction. Ethanol extraction is the most popular method, as it is safe, simple and effective. Supercritical CO2 extraction eliminates bacteria, mold and other contaminants that remain in CBD oil during other extraction methods.

Quality CBD oil requires several steps, but having a direct and clear supply chain helps produce quality end products.
