The Graceleaf Difference
The CBD world can be confusing, we know. That is why we go to great lengths to source the best CBD products with full transparency and third-party testing. We source from only the finest growers of hemp-derived phytocannabinoid-rich CBD in the U.S.
The Graceleaf product development team has many years of experience in the natural and organic food industry and operates with the most stringent attention to detail. All our ingredients are sourced with the highest quality and consistency in mind.
Graceleaf CBD products are made from our natural proprietary strains of hemp that are high in CBD. Rest assured that all the premium hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich U.S. soil.
Our farmers follow precise guidelines and operate with the newest and most effective farming techniques. This helps us ensure the consistent potency and quality of our natural strains, but more importantly, we always know our products are safe for consumption.
Our farmers also employ eco-farming techniques, like water-saving practices. We are also able avoid herbicide use because we source mature, higher density plants that grow quickly and are planted in a way that encourages natural predators that keep destructive bugs at bay.
Raw Hemp Processing
We then dry the hemp plants after they are harvested. The plants are then milled into a course powder, following the highest standards.
To source our quality CBD oil, we use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2. This method helps to preserve the important and beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. During this phase, we make sure any undesirable plant solids are removed from the oil. All our partners are cGMP compliant. That means they follow the highest standards for manufacturing.
While CBD on its own offers many benefits, a growing body of research has found that a broad spectrum product leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the entourage effect.
Separation and Removing THC for Broad Spectrum only
As we continue refining the CBD oil, we separate the hemp extract from the CO2 used during extraction. The remaining C02 is recycled for use during the next round of distillation.
All broad spectrum Graceleaf products are THC-free. Removing THC to effectively be 0.0% THC is a critical step, involving proprietary technology which also removes unwanted compounds like wax, chlorophyll, and plant pigments. We then wash and polish the CBD oil.
Independent Third-Party Lab Testing
Our CBD products undergo rigorous third-party lab testing before any batches are released. We follow very comprehensive testing: microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), potency (ensuring the label and actual product in the bottle match), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) and pesticides (60 total) and THC.
We support using organic ingredients whenever possible and each product has a QR code that links to lab reports on the raw oil and third-party testing of the finished product.
Industry-leading Nanoemulsion Technology
Graceleaf softgels have one more processing step. The raw hemp oil in our softgels goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into nano-sized emulsions. This makes our CBD oil among the most bioavailable broad spectrum in the industry.
For comparison, many other brands have hemp oil particles between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Graceleaf particles are around 25, effectively making our CBD oil easier for the body to absorb, allowing you to get more benefits.
Our dog treats also use water-soluble hemp powder which help them to be more bioavailable than standard hemp oil. All of this means that it takes less of our products to achieve the same level of benefits as many other CBD brands on the market.
