Our CBD Extractions

The most common extract, full spectrum Oil contains more than 100 different active cannabinoids, as well as a variety of different healthy compounds, such as terpenes, phytocannabinoids and flavonoids.

CBD Distillate is created by further processing the full spectrum oil through distillation. This process removes impurities while still leaving minor traces of beneficial terpenes and cannabinoids.

As the purest form of CBD, CBD Isolate is processed to remove any remaining impurities—thus also removing nearly all taste and smell from the extract.

A View Inside Vantage Hemp Co.

The CBD-hemp industry within the U.S. is a rapidly changing and emerging industry. Watch interviews with our Chief Operations Officer, Deepank Utkhede, and our Chief Revenue Officer, Harvinder Johal, as they discuss our philosophies and the ‘Vantage Advantage.’ Our extraction facilities that span over 60,000 sq. feet in Greeley, Colorado are also featured, giving insight into the processes that produce our full spectrum oil, isolate and distillate for the medical and consumer marketplace.

What Sets Us Apart

The ‘Vantage Advantage’ starts with our innovative processing and production methods of the materials themselves. This standard is met by our purpose-built extraction facilities, our pharmaceutical proficiency and considerable investment in industry-specific innovation creating the highest quality CBD products.

Located in Greeley, Colorado, our extraction facilities span over 60,000 sq. feet and are purposefully designed around pharmaceutical-production standards and processes. Second to none in terms of size, design and technology, the space and equipment which make up our CO2 and hydrocarbon extraction processes and purification allow us to produce products with precision.

The experts of Vantage Hemp are pivotal to the company’s success, ability to consistently produce premium extracts and expand our services to include white-labelling and bulk formulations. In addition to many prestigious scientific credentials, our expert team specialize in medical, pharmaceutical, and business operations and have used this knowledge to formulate a unique and scientifically derived approach to CBD extraction.

Vantage Hemp provides complete precision with each of our hemp extracts. Our facility’s ability for high-volume extraction at a pharmaceutical level includes our in-house lab and testing capabilities. This, combined with our team’s expertise, allows our company to deliver high-grade, reliable products that meet regulatory requirements and have consistent outcomes, batch after batch.

At Vantage Hemp, our combined capacity of production surpasses the industry standard. Our machines can process 1 ton of biomass a day through CO2 extraction and upwards of 4 tons lbs a day through hydrocarbon extractors. This allows us to produce both forms of extractions for the global supply chain at a scale ten times larger compared to typical facilities.

Our commitment to producing the highest-grade, GMP-compliant CBD oil, distillate and isolate is seen in every aspect of Vantage Hemp’s process. By only using top-quality biomass, routinely testing for quality control, and constantly improving our methods while adhering to pharmaceutical-production standards, we’re able to deliver pure, reliable, pharmaceutical grade, premium CBD products to the medical and consumer marketplace.
