At the Vanguard of Hemp Science

OUR PROCESS

Our Proprietary Extraction Process

Image Description

Extraction

GVB extracts cannabinoids from hemp using a proprietary cryogenic extraction process that allows us to specifically target only the valuable components of the hemp plant, while leaving behind the undesirable water-soluble elements.

Distillation

After extraction, our ultrahigh-quality crude is sent through our custom designed and fabricated short-path distillation system. This method enhances potency and clarity in the course of producing a honey-colored, broad-spectrum distillate.

THC Removal

The distillate is then either sent through our proprietary THC removal processes to ensure compliance with federal regulations, or converted into 99%+ pure CBD isolate, which contains only CBD.

CBG Processing

We utilize a similar method to process CBG isolate and distillate. This method differs mainly in the hemp used, which is naturally high in CBG.

Quality & Compliance

Industry-Leading Compliance Credentials

Commitment to Superlative Quality & Compliance

GVB carries all requisite local, state, and federal licensing, and operates facilities that are in full compliance with all applicable regulations.


Image description

OSHA Compliance

GVB has adhered to OSHA’s strict workplace health and safety guidelines since inception and has passed multiple OSHA inspections. GVB and our operating facilities are also in full compliance with NFPA 70.

Quality Management System

Although GMP (good manufacturing practice) compliance is not required by the FDA for hemp processors, GVB has proactively implemented the structural and documentational elements required for full GMP compliance. We expect third-party audited verification in mid-2020.

Food Grade Certification

GVB was one of the first hemp processors in Oregon to receive food-grade certification from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, which acts with the full authority of the USDA in Oregon. GVB strictly adheres to food-grade manufacturing practices, ensuring that all products are produced in a manner consistent with food products.

Fire Safety Compliance

GVB has worked closely with state fire marshals to ensure full compliance with all applicable fire safety regulations, and we have passed multiple state fire marshal inspections. We also periodically commission a haz-mat team to inspect the building and ensure that it is free from flammable chemical vapors.
