Crude refers to the base product produced in the initial extraction of our hemp material. Our crude typically ranges in CBD potency from 55% to 65%. During the extraction process we strive to maintain rich levels of CBC, CBN, CBG and CBDV. Once the extraction process is complete the Crude is sent to post processing where it is winterized and the THC is removed.
Winterization is a refining process in which raw extract is put through an alcohol wash that removes unwanted materials. The raw extract is immersed in alcohol and the frozen, hence its name. This process separates the cannabinoids from other compounds like waxes, lipids and chlorophyll.
