Where does our CBD come from – CBD Source
Our Kentucky supplier takes great pride in farming and producing the purest hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) in the world. It employs only the highest quality standards and scientific processes to deliver premium hemp product solutions.
Founded by industry pioneers who championed the world’s leading hemp CBD genetics, our supplying partner works with scientists, farmers and processing partners to combine cutting-edge genetics, breeding, cultivation, innovative harvesting, and rigorous quality control programs.
Our supplier only provides premium whole-plant hemp ingredients, sustainable and grown on US family farms, processed into bulk ingredients in the US, and then manufactured in FDA compliant facilities with 3rd party quality assurance. It operates under license from the Kentucky Department of Agriculture in accordance with section 7606 of the U.S. Farm Bill.
In recent years US and global demand for CBD has grown tremendously; much of the early products were imported, of poor quality, and suspect origin.
Confidence in compliance is the cornerstone of both CBD BioCare and our partner’s mission. Health conscious consumers seek natural solutions that come from farm trusted, organic growing techniques with quality assurance at every step.
This is why our supplier works with a team of in-house scientists, developers, agronomists, lab researchers as well as partnerships with several Kentucky universities. They are leading the industry in innovations from the field through CBD extraction and through internal refinement processes, producing industry leading purity in hemp-derived CBD. It’s internal focus on quality assurance culminates with all products being tested by 3rd party laboratories to ensure accuracy, safety and quality.
At harvest, our supplier uses a proprietary system that virtually eliminates molds and other pathogens as green hemp plants undergo flash processing. Vacuum sealed, shelf-stable bulk containers of dried, ground hemp are the product of an innovative three minute curing process that provides year round inventory so markets can be supplied all year round.
“Hemp”, very low in THC, by law, is the non-psychotropic version of cannabis with superfood status. In 2003 the US Department of Health and Human Services wrote patents about some of the cannabinoid molecules found in hemp as “antioxidants and neuroprotectants.”
Recently, hemp oils high in cannabinoids such as CBD, have gained fame due to the amazing evidence of the miraculous neuroprotective impact on little Charlotte Figi’s life – displayed to the world by CNN. Now, millions realize that these neuroprotective, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory benefits extend to a variety of neurological disorders such as anxiety, pain, inflammation, and dozens of more applications.
Many Americans are confused over the legality of hemp, because hemp is not available for general farming like corn or soybeans. Until 2014, only imported hemp was federally legal in the US. Thus America is the largest importer of hemp products in the world, mostly from China, Canada and Europe.
The 2014 Farm Bill (Agricultural Act of 2014) changed the legal status of hemp in the US forever. Section 7606 conveyed to state Department of Agriculture’s, and institutions of higher learning, the ability to grow, cultivate, process and market hemp so long as research projects were conducted in accordance with corresponding state and federal laws.
While a small path to accessing this American grown superfood became available, it wasn’t until a Statement of Principles, issued last August by the USDA (also signed by DOJ/DEA and HHS/FDA), that federal agencies had a legal basis for the broad federal acceptance of hemp. Further recent clarification has removed most of the legal questions about the movement of hemp and hemp-derived products over state and international lines.
Kentucky’s leadership in hemp reform, stemming from its long ago history as the dominant American supplier of hemp products, has ensured that Kentucky’s farmers and processors are at the vanguard of this re-emerging agricultural commodity. Our supplier is proud to have a successful history and relationship with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture, instituting its Head Office at the Hemp Research Campus in Winchester, KY, and becoming the first recipient of a multiyear production permit.
Kentucky grown hemp enjoys the clarity of the agricultural production of a re-purposed crop in a jurisdiction famous for its farmers and its hemp.
There are only three ways to legally acquire CBD in the US.
It is currently legal to import CBD processed from hemp stalks, in concord with a 2004 court decision. Imported CBD extracted from the hemp flower is not in compliance with current regulation and these imports are subject to seizure.
#2 Medical Marijuana Program:
CBD extracted from cannabis can be acquired in a state with a legal MMJ program. This CBD cannot move across state lines and is limited to serving only those residing in that state.
#3 Domestic Hemp Program:
The most advantageous way to acquire CBD in the US is from a legal hemp program that is fully compliant with Federal Farm Bill section 7606. The state of Kentucky simply has the best legislative and regulatory pathway to empower hemp programs to grow, cultivate, process and market hemp and hemp-derived CBD. KDA clearly articulates that the hemp flower is to be processed as an agricultural commodity — food.
Not all Hemp Sources are Created Equal
True industrial hemp is genetically inferior to medicinal hemp, yet it is defined the same way by the regulatory agencies.
Many brands/companies/legal counsel who still believe that hemp-derived CBD must come from overseas to be “fully legal” are not taking into consideration the 2014 US Farm Bill section 7606 which created for the first time since 1937, a Federally legal pathway to growing “industrial hemp” once again on American soil. Our supplier conforms entirely to section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill and its “medicinal hemp” strain is registered with the Colorado State Department of Agriculture as “industrial hemp”.
As demand for CBD continues to grow, so too will the synthetic forms of CBD crystalline isolate coming out of China and Eastern Europe. CBD buyers need to be cautious when purchasing CBD from overseas, as much of it contains heavy metals, toxins, and/or mysterious chemicals. True quality control can only be guaranteed if all aspects of the supply chain and manufacturing is vertically-integrated.
When you buy from CBD BioCare you can trust its’ the best quality CBD available.
Our premium whole-plant cannabinoids are extracted via a super critical CO2 extraction into a crude extract oil which is then either:
1. Mixed directly with carrier oils at desired concentration levels to deliver “full spectrum” products that contain high CBD concentrations and other cannabinoids, or
2. Put through a proprietary, multi-phased CBD crystallization process which uniquely precipitates CBD crystals, yielding the purest and most stable isolate product on the market. These two processes yield a variety of products.
In addition to cultivating, our supplier is also using this knowledge to help train and save other family farm businesses across Kentucky by teaching them how to grow this amazing plant. In addition to training and education about growing, these farmers are also learning how to turn their harvested crops into valuable hemp-derived CBD products.
