Tennessee Harvester announces the World’s first USDA Certified Organic CBD Isolate – The Organic Magazine
Tennessee Harvester Enterprises (THE) has pioneered a proprietary process that has yielded the world’s the first and only USDA certified Organic Cannabidiol (CBD) isolate. Once thought impossible, due to the prevalent use of hydrocarbons during traditional CBD isolate manufacturing, THE’s process only utilises USDA certified Organic food-grade processing aids.
This game changing technology could not come at a better time for the rapidly growing CBD industry as the call for CBD as an ingredient is only increasing. At the same time consumers want to know what is in their packaged goods.
Mike Vrabel, THE’s Chief Science Officer explains, “It’s exciting to see our process scaling and being recognised by the USDA. Our approach differs in manufacturing CBD ingredients in that we only utilise USDA Organic food-grade processing aids. Contrast this with an industry standard of manufacturing CBD isolates with a potentially toxic class of hydrocarbons, known as alkanes, and you will quickly understand the difference. Butane, hexane, heptane, pentane, etc., are great in backyard grills, lighters and industrial chemical manufacturing, not so much in your body. Why adulterate such an amazingly healthy plant like that?”
With a base of operations in Nashville, Tennessee, THE is well positioned to serve hemp farmers and processors throughout the United States, and internationally. THE’s scientific capabilities include USDA Organic certification of both CBD distillates and now CBD isolate, GMP processing standards, repeatedly demonstrating THC free production of less than .001% and a vast white label capability for both domestic and international clientele.
Nor does THE intend to be limited to the production of USDA certified organic CBD distillates and isolates. Given the number of compounds in the industrial hemp plant, there is much work to be done with organically isolating other compounds utilising THE’s technology. Look for more announcements from THE in the coming months.
