How Does Extraction Work?
A high-quality extracted subzero is the least processed and doesn’t require any chemicals or further processing to produce an extract that can be put into a finished product. An advantage of this extraction method is that a high-quality hemp plant can become a full spectrum extract without further extractions, which means it likely benefits the most from the entourage effect. Why? Because the plant components are working together synergistically increasing the beneficial properties provided by the full spectrum extract. These high-quality full spectrum hemp extracts are a promising choice for therapeutic benefits, and the type of extraction method that RAD Extracts utilizes in all our white and private label products.
Why Choose a Full Spectrum Extract
How to Detect a Full Spectrum Extract
Organoleptic analysis (a sensory observation of the color, odor and appearance) is a great way to detect a quality full spectrum extract. Full spectrum extracts include many flavonoids and terpenes. Flavonoids are largely responsible for the color, and terpenes are largely responsible for the scent. This makes it possible for us to use our eyes and nose to differentiate between a higher quality product, and a lower quality product. It’s easier to detect these quality standards with an MCT based oil, in comparison to something such as hemp seed oil, which is generally green in color.
