Tip #3: Method of Extraction Matters
Oil extract methods have the potential to produce traces of harmful solvents. Reputable CBD manufacturer will use an extraction method that results in the purest CBD possible. Currently, a reputable extraction method uses CO2 technology, aka Supercritical Fluid Extraction using Carbon Dioxide.
