Holistic Hemp Scotland's hemp is grown on small artisan farms in the EU using a bio-dynamic, organic growing process, without the use of pesticides or artificial fertilizers. Once the crop is ready, the flowers are hand-picked and individually hung up to dry at natural temperatures. Once fully dry, the hemp is extracted using CO2, under low heat and low pressure conditions. Our CBD oil contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
Let’s compare our hemp to almost every other commercially available CBD oil. Hemp is usually bought in bulk from an industrial supply that's been harvested by large cutting machines. After the machines chop the entire top 1/3 off the plant, the harvested plant matter is crushed by tractors using heavy rollers and dumped into an industrial kiln to be quickly dried. The dried matter is then crushed under high pressure into small pellets, to make it smaller for transport, then sent away to a company for CO2 extraction, which is often done at high temperature. Most of the natural compounds of hemp are lost in this industrial process. Which would you prefer?
