The hemp plant material is dried and milled into a powdered form. This allows for higher surface area which in turn results in an efficient extraction in shorter time. The extraction is carried out either in supercritical CO2 or ethanol. The solvent allows for preferential extraction of canabinoids, waxes, terpernes and some of the impurities while discouraging the exchange of impurities such as plant carbohydrates and other impurities. The liquid extract or slurry containing plant material is processed through a custom designed filtration process in which almost all of the undissolved solids are retained while solid-free clean extract is able to permeate through the filter membrane. The solvent from clean hemp extract is recovered using distillation. This converts liquid extract into an oil form. This oil is further treated to preferentially remove waxes. It is then processed through a unique chromatography media which removes THC. The final oil has total phytocannabinoids in 75-85% range with total terpenes between 1 to 4%.
Merrick Wellness does not possess a certification to demonstrate that these organic farming practices have been reviewed and approved by a certification agency but expects to have one by 2018. This declaration intends to inform the parties concerned that the practices leading to an organic-certification in future are already in place and therefore, result in an equivalent product that could be expected from a certified-organic farm.
No. There are over 100 known cannabinoids, each with their own effect on the body. Though THC and CBD have similar chemical composition, their atoms are arranged differently. Because of the way THC is arranged molecularly, it is the perfect compound for interaction with Cannaboid 1 (CB1) receptors. This connection is the one that provides an intoxicating effect to the brain. CBD, however, is not a good connector to CB1. Instead, CBD connects with CB2 receptor. This produces a completely different effect on the body.
