The majority of CBD companies are now buying their oils from large wholesalers offering low-cost oil extracted from hemp grown all around Europe and the USA. This is called ‘Bio Mass’ – large quantities of remaining plant material after the flowers and seeds have been removed. The end-user has no idea where the cannabis plants were grown, in what soil and what cultivation methods were used.
The benefit to these companies is an endless supply at low prices. The benefit to the customer is not so great, resulting in lower quality oils that are not certified organic, with no guarantee of a responsible ‘seed-to-bottle’ process.
