Not all hemp is created equal, which means not all hemp is the same. As a premium hemp company and board member of the U.S. Hemp Roundtable, we believe that if you want to create the best products available, excellence must be a priority at every stage. With this as a guidepost, we can partner with the right people and companies to achieve a high standard of business.
We’ve Partnered With the Finest
To further our mission of creating the world’s best hemp products, we choose our partners very carefully. After extensive due-diligence, Transcend Alchemy and her team decided to partner with some of the best growers, manufacturers, and distributors of hemp-derived phytocannabinoids in the U.S. This partner makes the raw hemp compounds Transcend Alchemy uses in her products.
Transcend Alchemy’s innovative and thorough product development team ensures that every single ingredient used is meticulously sourced and lab tested. Transcend Alchemy plays a large role in developing every single product and insists on collaborating with the best of the best to ensure her product formulations are the highest quality possible.
Step 1: Superior Farming
Every product Transcend Alchemy creates starts with our natural proprietary strains of hemp that are high in hemp. All of the hemp we use is grown in nutrient-rich soil in the United States.
Our farmers operate under strict guidelines while using state-of-the-art farming processes. Not only does this enhance the quality of our natural proprietary strains, but it also makes sure our products are safe, regulated and unsurpassed in their potency and consistency.
These farming processes include innovative water-saving practices. We also implement the “sea of green” approach, meaning that we grow hemp plants that mature quickly in higher density. This helps us avoid herbicide use. We plant our hemp in a way that encourages natural predators so we can avoid pesticide use as well.
Step 2: Raw Hemp Processing
The plants we use are dried and warehoused after they are harvested. When we need a plant for production, it is milled into a coarse powder. The milling process adheres to the highest standards in the industry. Once processed, it is shipped to our processing and manufacturing facility here in Colorado.
Step 3: Proprietary Extraction
At our facility, we are cGMP compliant. That means we follow the highest standards for manufacturing.
We use a proprietary hemp extraction and purification process that involves supercritical CO2, a commonly used method of extraction. This makes sure that many of hemp’s beneficial phytocannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids are preserved in the process. The result? The highest quality broad spectrum hemp oil available.
While hemp on its own offers many benefits, a growing body of research has found that a broad spectrum product leads to multiplying benefits. This is called the entourage effect.
The process isn’t quite done. Once extracted, undesirable plant solids like waxes and chlorophyll are removed from the oil.
Step 4: Separation
Before further refinement, the hemp extract is separated from the supercritical CO2 used in the extraction process. Once this step is completed, the CO2 is recycled and used again in the distillation process.
Step 5: THC Removal and Refining
One of the most important steps in the process is to extract even the most minute traces of THC. THC is the compound found in cannabis that produces the “high” associated with the plant.
We use proprietary technology to remove unwanted compounds including wax, chlorophyll, plant pigments and trace amounts of THC. It is then “washed” and “polished.”
Step 6: Third-Party Lab Testing
Before we release any batch, it goes through rigorous third-party lab testing. We have set a new bar of testing in the industry. Every batch receives the most comprehensive testing available: microbial (E. coli, yeast, mold), potency (ensuring what’s on the label is in the bottle), heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury and cadmium) and pesticides (60 total).
We strive to use organic ingredients whenever possible. Each of our products includes a QR code linking to both the internal lab reports on the raw oil and the third-party testing on the finished product.
Step 7: Our Proprietary Nanoemulsion Technology
Our softgels require our oil to go through another processing step. The raw hemp oil goes through a proprietary process that transforms it into nano-sized emulsions. This makes it the most bioavailable broad spectrum hemp in the industry.
Our competitors’ hemp oil particles are anywhere between 100 and 1000 nanometers in size. Our particles are around 25. This small size leads to much more effective absorption.
This nanoemulsion process makes our softgel formulas more bioavailable than oil-based products. In addition to our nanoemulsion process, we use other proprietary technology to create the water-soluble hemp powder used in our dog treats and energy mix — since your body has difficulty absorbing oil, this water-soluble format is also more bioavailable than standard hemp oil.
What does this mean for you? You can use less of the product made with these processes to achieve the same level of benefit as the products sold by most of our competitors. We think that’s a reason to celebrate.
Better process, better products, better results — with Transcend Alchemy, you only get the best.
