Does the CBD extraction method matter?

To choose the healthiest, most effective product, consumers also must factor the extraction method their supplier uses. The two most prevalent extraction methods currently employed to extract CBD are:

  • Alcohol extraction via ethanol
  • Supercritical CO2 extraction

Alcohol extraction via ethanol, while cheaper, produces a lower quality product that can retain trace amounts of ethanol. Supercritical CO2 extraction produces a cleaner and healthier final product because it uses a lower temperature that prevents the possible loss of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other desired volatile compounds in the plant.[1]

For this reason, Calmly products are extracted using the supercritical CO2 extraction method, to ensure a product that retains the maximum synergistic compounds, free of detectable solvents, heavy metals or pesticides, and meeting the toughest regulatory requirements. Lab results show that our oils regularly test about 90% CBD concentration, among the highest results available anywhere in the industry.
