How CBD is made
Cannabis and hemp strains produce varying amounts of CBD. When a high CBD-producing strain is found, it is cultivated over the course of three months. After that, it is harvested and processed into concentrates. There are a few different types of concentrates that are used as raw materials in the manufacturing phase. Once the final products are completed, they are sent to a third-party to be lab tested before they are distributed.
