What We Do

Water Droplet Icon

Through our precise, GMP compliant, technologically advanced and scientifically driven CBD extraction process, Vantage Hemp is able to produce large scale, full spectrum distillate and isolate.

icon-distillate

Vantage Hemp’s systematic farming practices combine real agriculture and real science to ensure our production is of the highest standard in the industry, or what we like to call—White Glove Farming. 

Oil Droplet Icon

Our dedication to sustainability and transparency goes beyond just using those words. Vantage Hemp tracks the supply chain lifecycle of our extracts from the initial planting through the extraction process and all the way to the processing and sales of our oils, distillates, and isolates.

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.

White Glove Farming

Our precise, practiced and perfected transplanting process uses experienced growers and  the latest science and technology, to consistently produce the same pure and premium CBD products.

01

People

Producing exceptional CBD extracts starts with our professional growers, who use their expertise to select the highest quality seed and carefully tend the fields throughout the entire growing season. This meticulous method ensures ultimate plant health and maximizes CBD content while maintaining the legal limit for THC during the harvest.

02

Science

Vantage Hemp has developed a specific multi-stage process that succeeds thanks to the scientific steps we take. In fact, this process begins months before the extraction of biomass even happens and is crucial to our ability to deliver consistent, pharmaceutical grade, CBD extracts.

03

Technology

Incorporating the latest technology such as CBD testing and field record software and precision planting techniques into our White Glove Farming process is just another way we show our commitment to excellence for the CBD extracts we produce. 

Seed to Sale

With the help of our professional growers, Vantage Hemp only uses the highest quality seed that has the most desirable genetic traits and are 97–99% feminized.

Our multiple farms, located in Colorado and Oregon, produce premium hemp biomass which is the basis for producing premium CBD extracts.

Our high capacity extraction and purification facility in Greeley, Colorado, allows us to efficiently complete our five-step extraction process: 

  1. This process begins with the decarboxylation of the biomass to allow for the efficient extraction of cannabinoids.
  2. Decarboxylated biomass is then extracted using either supercritical CO2 or hydrocarbon (liquid propane) extraction methods. 
  3. Crude CBD extract is winterized using new and innovative techniques to produce full spectrum oil. 
  4. This oil is further processed to produce distillate using advanced distillation equipment. 
  5. The CBD is crystallized from distillate to produce pure CBD isolate.

As the appeal of CBD infused products grows, so does the demand for premium, trusted, GMP compliant CBD extracts to use in these products. To fill that need, Vantage Hemp partners with companies ranging from small startups to global brands to create the best-in-class, highest quality CBD products on the market.
