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 in the U.S. is a rapidly changing and emerging industry. Watch interviews with our Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Daniel Chinnapen, Chief Operations Officer Deepank Utkhede, and Director Harvinder Johal discussing our philosophies and the Vantage approach. Our recently opened state-of-the-art extraction facility is also featured, giving insight into the innovative techniques used to extract CBD of the highest quality.

What Sets Us Apart

The Vantage Hemp difference starts with our innovative processing and production methods of the materials themselves. Our world-class facilities combined with the incredible expertise and knowledge of our team allow us to create the highest quality products with precision and scale unlike any other.

Located in Greeley, Colorado, our scale 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 machines included in our two CBD extraction processes allow us to produce products with momentous scale and incredible precision.

The people of Vantage Hemp are pivotal to the company’s success and ability to consistently produce the level of quality that we pride itself on. In addition to many prestigious scientific credentials, our expert team specializes in medical, pharmaceutical and business operations and have used this knowledge to formulate an unique approach to CBD extraction based in science, innovation and technology.

Vantage Hemp is dedicated to providing 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 for quality assurance. This, combined with the team’s expertise, allows our company to deliver high-grade, reliable products that meet regulation requirements and have consistent outcomes, batch after batch.

At Vantage Hemp, our combined capacity of production scale surpasses the industry standard. Our machines have the ability to process 1000 lbs of biomass a day through CO2 extraction and upwards of 4000 lbs a day through hydrocarbon extractors. This allows us to produce both forms of extractions 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 and improving our methods while adhering to pharmaceutical standards at every step, we’re able to deliver pure, reliable, pharmaceutical grade, premium CBD products.
