Founded in 2016 out of a need for quality-controlled CBD, Green Valley Nutrition has worked tirelessly to facilitate the development of the hemp CBD industry in Virginia. Our goal is to improve quality of life and enrich our community by providing education coupled with simple and effective cannabinoid science.
Up until April 2019, it was unlawful to cultivate or process CBD hemp in Virginia, and the legality of processing and distributing CBD was a gray area.
Today, Green Valley Nutrition is leading the way in Virginia by providing you with the tools you need to make effective decisions about your health. Our state-of-the-art processing, testing, and research facilities exist to improve our understanding of cannabis and the body's endocannabinoid system.
We control the entire process from seed to sale. This means that we monitor every step of the production process from the time the seed is planted, to the moment you open your bottle of CBD Oil Drops.
At Green Valley Nutrition we use a supercritical CO2 extraction process to extract hemp oil from our raw hemp material. Carbon dioxide-based extraction is considered to be the most environmentally friendly, safest, and cleanest method for extracting plant oils. It is commonly used to make various food and other products– and it’s becoming increasingly popular for extracting top quality hemp oil high in cannabidiol.
Our Supercritical CO2 extraction process creates phase changes in carbon dioxide utilizing temperature and pressure. These phase changes create an environment to filter out differing weights of components in the plant material. This enables collection of light essential oils separately from other desirable constituents and heavier lipids.
After extracting crude hemp CBD oil from the plant material, we use specialized equipment to separate our hemp oil into distinguishable layers using a process called chromatography. This allows us to further refine our hemp oil into the pure CBD Isolate that we use in our products, while removing other useful compounds such as CBG, CBC, CBN, THC, fatty omega-3 acids, and terpenes for use in other products.
This proprietary secondary extraction process is what separates Green Valley Nutrition CBD products from many other full spectrum hemp oil products you see on the market today. At the end of all this, we are left with the most pure and potent form of CBD available anywhere today.
