The important role CO2 extraction plays in hemp production.
With the many choices manufacturers have to derive the hemp extract, the CO2 extraction process provides the safest method when done by professionals and yields the highest quality CBD extract with little room for error.
In a nutshell, the CO2 extraction method uses supercritical carbon dioxide to pull extracts from the cannabis plant. By definition, supercritical materials are not quite a liquid but not quite a gas and possess both properties. This state is ideal for plant extraction because supercritical CO2 can move through materials like gas and dissolve materials like a liquid. For CO2 extraction, typically, these steps are followed:
1. The CO2 is prepared in a compression chamber, and the gas turns into a liquid. Once complete, the temperature and the pressure rise until the liquid becomes supercritical.
2. The supercritical CO2 passes through the cannabis trimmings, where it dissolves and collects the plant extracts.
3. The extracted solution enters a lower pressure separator where the CO2 and plant extracts separate, and the cannabis oil drains from the separator.
Royal Ostrich believes that only quality products develop from quality hemp farming and processing. That’s why we ensure all our partners are GMP compliant and produce phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil through the CO2 extraction method in all of our ingestible products.
Want to boost absorption of your CBD? Learn about nanoemulsion technology.
Softgels provide an easy and predictable way to enjoy the benefits of CBD. However, not all CBD capsules are of the highest quality and with premium ingredients. Our softgels provide superior absorption of broad spectrum CBD because we use CO2 extracted hemp and nanoemulsion technology.
In its simplest terms, nanoemulsion technology decreases the particle size, allowing for higher absorption of the CBD. Many softgels are oil-based therefore limiting bioavailability. Royal Ostrich softgels are water-soluble and derive a higher bioavailability since the body consists mainly of water. Combining water and nanoemulsion technology offers a quality experience with our exceptional softgels.
We offer both 10mg and 25mg softgels which are a fast and effective way to enjoy the benefits of CBD.
Infused versus sprayed gummies – why it’s important to know the difference.
CBD gummies are a popular, convenient, and flavorful option for anyone wanting to participate in our gummies’ health and wellness benefits. But not all gummies are created equal. The production of a CBD gummy could make a difference in how effective it is.
The most common, cheapest, and easiest way to produce a CBD gummy is to spray it down with a coat of CBD oil or roll it in sugar and CBD powder. These gummies taste lovely because there are several good manufacturers out there that produce a great-tasting gummy. However, CBD gummies made like this cannot compare to the quality and effectiveness of products that include the active CBD extract in the actual mixture of ingredients, then formulated into the finished product.
Royal Ostrich only selects CBD-infused gummies because CBD is extremely sensitive to light and heat. Prolonged exposure to these elements results in rapid breakdown of the compound, limiting the effectiveness of the gummy. In addition, gummies infused tend to dose more accurately. That means you can trust that every gummy has the same CBD concentration.
What is the entourage effect?
The overall effect of the rich combination of cannabinoids and terpenes found in broad spectrum and full spectrum CBD oil is known as the entourage effect. In cannabis, the cannabinoids and terpenes work together to produce a wide range of benefits, which in theory, is greater than the sum of its components. More research is needed to determine the exact role that terpenes play in the overall effects of CBD oil, but it seems clear that terpenes work in concert with cannabinoids to produce a richer effect than CBD alone. At Royal Ostrich, we believe the entourage effect is a vital wellness benefit; therefore, all our products include phytocannabinoid-rich, broad spectrum CBD oil (except our gummies and Ravishing Lip Plumper – these are made with isolate CBD oil).
