Not all hemp is created equal. Therefore, not all CBD is the same. At VALO, we collaborate with the highest quality partners in the industry to bring you the very best CBD hemp oil products available anywhere in the world.
After much searching and due diligence, VALO chose the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of organic hemp-derived phytocannabinoids in the U.S. Our partner makes the raw hemp compounds VALO uses in all our CBD products.
Our partner’s proprietary and GMP-certified process ensures that you get the highest quality CBD hemp oil available and with an industry-leading bioavailability. This means you get the best product on the market with an extremely high absorption rate.
Being fully transparent with our customers is a core value at VALO. Please take a moment to learn about how our CBD is grown and manufactured.
7-Step Process for Creating Pharmaceutical Grade Zero THC CBD Hemp Oil
Step 1: Organic Farming
Every product in VALO’s CBD line starts with our natural proprietary strains of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. Grown in nutrient-rich U.S soil, the growers we partner with farm with strict 100% organic practices to produce VALO’s natural proprietary hemp strains. This results in consistently safe and potent products grown with great care.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
After the hemp is harvested to produce hemp oil products, it is dried and warehoused. Only when we need a plant for production is it milled into a course powder. The milling process follows the highest quality standards in the industry.
Step 3: Proprietary Extraction & Solids Separation
VALO’s milled hemp goes through a proprietary extraction and purification process. This process ensures that all of the beneficial properties from the hemp plant are preserved, while unwanted compounds are removed.
Research shows that while CBD derived from hemp alone is highly beneficial, a phytocannabinoid-rich product with other naturally-occurring compounds multiplies the benefits. Therefore, our manufacturer’s one-of-a-kind process means that VALO’s CBD products are full-spectrum, meaning they retain beneficial naturally-occurring compounds. These compounds include many of the cannabinoids in the hemp plant, amino acids, terpenes and flavonoids. This ensures that every drop of VALO CBD is filled with phytocannabinoid- rich hemp oil.
Step 4: Distillation
Following our grower’s proprietary extraction and solid separation process, the hemp oil is distilled to separate the hemp extract from the food grade ethanol used in the extraction process. Our partner’s manufacturing facility is one of the very few facilities in the world that uses food grade ethanol, demonstrating our commitment safety and quality.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
As one of the few CBD lines offering 100% zero THC CBD, this step is essential to our production process and our commitment to our customers. Here we remove even the most minute traces of THC, the compound found in hemp and cannabis that produces the “high” associated with the plant.
During this step, compounds such as wax, chlorophyll and plant pigments are also removed. Finally, the CBD hemp oil is washed and polished to result in pharmaceutical grade zero THC CBD oil.
Step 6: Lab Testing
Every production run is tested for quality and potency to verify that all of the phytocannabinoid-rich properties are retained, consistent and pure. After going through rigorous in-house lab testing, every batch receives a certificate of analysis.
Step 7: Proprietary Nanoemulsion Technology
Finally, what makes our CBD products like no other on the market is our nanoemulsion technology, resulting in the most bioavailable CBD in the industry. The raw hemp oil goes through a process transforming it into nano-sized emulsions.
Competitor hemp oil particles are between 150 to 5000 nanometers in size. Whereas, VALO’s particles are between 25 to 60 nanometers. The smaller the particle, the better it is absorbed by the body. This unique process results in the most highly bioavailable CBD oil.
