Most CBD oil companies make big claims, but they don’t grow, process, or extract for themselves. In fact, some companies never even touch the product; they simply repackage cheap third party CBD oil that could be coming from anywhere. Others grow low grade genetics and surprisingly, many brag about extracting with CO2.
Since 2013, the 4 Corners family has been dedicated to producing the best cannabidiol dominant products on the market. We are growers, breeders, and extraction experts. We were one of the first CBD companies, and we take great pride in what we do. The proof is in our products!
What Set’s 4 Corners Apart?
Traditionally, hemp has been bred specifically for its fiber. It’s optimized for making items such as clothes, rope, biofuel, and much more. When it comes to traditional hemp, most of the Cannabinoids (THC, CBC, CBG, etc…) are largely bred out of the plant in order to increase fiber production. Despite this, many brands in the CBD oil industry utilize this sub-par source for hemp oil production. Companies capitalize on this cheap alternative to create low quality hemp oil products to cash in on the boom in demand.
Here at 4 Corners we strive to grow the highest quality hemp flowers on the market. Our fields are grown from clones to ensure high quality and a consistent spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids. We use our solvent-based extraction method to draw out the most robust range of cannabinoids from the hemp plant possible, while preserving essential terpenes and flavonoids. We use USDA Certified Organic Sugar Cane Ethanol to extract the CBD oil from the plant matter. This is 95% drinking alcohol made from sugar. We do not recommend drinking alcohol this strong, however it is food grade and perfect extractions. Compare that to hydrocarbon extractions such as propane, butane, heptane, hexane, etc. which are food prep safe, but not safe to consume. This is important to consider because, even with fancy Rotovaps and vacuum ovens, it is impossible to purge 100% of any solvent used for hemp oil extraction. Is your health important enough to avoid putting toxic CBD products into your body? 4 Corners thinks so!
How does our method work? The oil is extracted from ground hemp flowers at very low temperatures and then it is triple filtered to remove any unnecessary plant materials. The resulting extract is then distilled to remove the alcohol from the finished oil, which is now ready to be incorporated into our products. Although this simple form of extraction has been common for many years, we have taken it to the next level with state-of-the-art lab equipment operated by trained chemists. Rest assured, any part of the plant that we don’t use is composted back into the soil to replenish nutrients for future growing seasons.
