Our Process

The World’s Best Organic Hemp-Based Products

Not all hemp is created equal, which means not all CBD is either.

To further our mission of creating the world’s best organic CBD products, we choose our partners very carefully. After extensive due-diligence, we decided to partner with the largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of hemp-derived phytocannabinoids in the U.S. This partner makes the raw hemp compounds we use in our products.

This partnership combines the talents of some of the world’s leading scientists, chemists, veterinarians, formulators and experts in the hemp industry. These experts consult with our industry-leading marketing and services group. The result? A guarantee that the hemp extracts we use are the highest quality possible.

Below is an overview of the proprietary and GMP-certified process.


STEP 1: ORGANIC FARMING

Every product we create starts with our natural proprietary strains of phytocannabinoid-rich hemp. All of the hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in the United States. Our farmers operate under strict guidelines and use only 100% organic practices.

We take advantage of a state-of-the-art farming process. Not only does this enhance the quality of our natural proprietary strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unsurpassed in their potency and consistency.

STEP 2: RAW HEMP PROCESSING

The plants we use are dried and warehoused after they are harvested. When we need a plant for production, it is milled into a coarse powder. The milling process adheres to the highest quality standards in the industry. Once processed, it is shipped to our processing and manufacturing facility in Colorado.

STEP 3: PROPRIETARY EXTRACTION AND SOLIDS SEPARATION

We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process. This makes sure that all of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved. It also gets rid of unwanted compounds while preventing natural molecules from degrading. The result? The highest quality full spectrum hemp oil available.

Every drop of our phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR) hemp oil contains many of the cannabinoids present in the hemp plant. You will also find a variety of naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids and amino acids. What this means for you is that ZenWorks products contain a broad spectrum of beneficial natural compounds.

But the process isn’t quite done. Once extracted, the oil is then pressed to separate most of the oil from undesirable plant solids like waxes.

STEP 4: DISTILLATION

The oil is then distilled to separate the hemp extract from the food-grade ethanol used in the extraction process. In fact, we are one of the few facilities in the world that use this food-grade ethanol.

STEP 5: THC REMOVAL AND REFINING

One of the most important steps in the process is to remove even the most minute traces of THC. THC is the compound that produces the “high” associated with the plant.

We use proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds still present in the oil. These compounds include wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished” to create the highest quality, zero THC, CBD oil available. This process provides you with all of the benefits of a “Full Spectrum” product, without the THC.

STEP 6: IN-HOUSE AND THIRD-PARTY LAB TESTING

We test every production run for quality and potency. This makes sure that all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, essential fatty acids and phytonutrients are consistent and pure.

We make lab reports for all of our products available to our customers.

Better process, better products, better results. Because, like we said, not all hemp is created equal, and neither are all CBD products.
