The teams academic and industry backgrounds compliment the full range of equipment available in the CannaVest laboratories and ensure that consistency and quality are maintained with every batch.
Since the lab was established in September of 2013 CannaVest has increased its production capacity of hemp oil, and the available product lines. The lab has grown from a 2389 sqft facility to 3641 sqft to increase the company’s scientific capabilities. The sterile environment in the new lab space will house rapid microbial screening equipment for high-throughput identification of potentially harmful yeast, mold, and bacteria pathogens. In addition, the company plans to develop techniques to identify individual hemp species at the genetic level. This will enable the company to maintain breeders right protection on various industrial hemp cultivars that grow well in the United States of America and produce high levels of fiber, CBD, and hemp seed oil.
CannaVest Labs have specifically increased capabilities to concentrate these hemp oils into high value CBD-rich hemp oils. CannaVest CBD products have been covered on major news networks (CNN and ABC 10 San Diego News), and earned recognition in multiple Cannabis Cups (Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and Seattle)/Michigan “Green Cup” for the highest cannabidiol (CBD) concentrates.
