Our Extraction Process

Our Extraction Process

Using The Spagyric Method

At Washington’s Reserve, we produce “raw” living products. We are able to apply our experience and holistic approach, coupled with scientific knowledge, to create the widest-spectrum cannabidiol (CBD)-enriched extract on the market. This means that we use the whole hemp plant, retaining all of the hemp’s naturally occurring beneficial compounds.

We begin with organically grown hemp, grown in the Colorado soil. This ensures a rich mineral content to increase the nutritive value of our extract, as well as creating the cleanest possible product. This is especially important in creating CBD-enriched extracts because the same process that concentrates these target therapeutics can also concentrate any pesticides that may be present in the starting material.

Next, we extract a wide spectrum of the hemp therapeutics, including the many cannabinoids and valuable terpenes, using organic  alcohol. We keep this process below 100 F° to protect the delicate constituents. This also ensures that not all of our cannabinoid acids are decarboxylated which basically destroys the 'acid' forms of the CBDs and they are so important for your health.*  Ensuring that they are the widest-spectrum CBD-enriched extracts on the market today. We believe that by mimicking the natural biochemistry of the plant as closely as possible and processing gently, we can preserve all of the valuable therapeutic constituents.

We base this  practice on internal experimentation and peer-reviewed literature published by reputable scientists and institutions. If you would like to read the original sources for the information we provided here, they may be found here: (source material coming soon).
