Home / How is CBD made?
Agricultural CBD is labour intensive, weather dependant and difficult to purify as hemp plants accumulate environmental toxins. BioPharm does not use this method.
Bioengineered CBD is the most economical to produce in the long run, but developing the route to each compound takes some years. BioPharm has proprietary technology in this area under development and expect to see results around 2025.
This Pharmaceutical method produces a highly pure product without contaminants, it is less labour intensive than Agricultural methods, and BioPharm has developed a very economical method for producing large amounts quickly, and technology for eliminating waste to offset environmental impact.
Up until now Agricultural CBD has dominated the market, as pharmaceutical CBD was too expensive. Consumers have been told that natural products are better because many of the natural impurities are beneficial. Doctors are largely not recommending CBD products for concerns around quality control, and lack of medical data. Pharmaceutical manufacturers have no tolerance for impurities and are moving towards Chemical CBD.
Today health authorities are advising that many of the impurities in agricultural CBD are highly toxic. Amongst these concerns neither the FDA or EU have cleared CBD for general consumption.
If your application requires the highest specification of purity, or you want peace of mind that your production line will never be stopped by QA due to contaminated input materials, you should talk to us about non agricultural sources of CBD.
You might find that the prices are becoming comparable.
