Quality Assurance FAQs
Here are a few things you will want to know to help you understand our lab tests.
What is chromatography? How is it different from other extraction processes?
Chromatography is a slow extraction process that uses high air pressure to separate the THC from raw hemp oil. Unlike bulk extraction processes, chromatography is able to precisely remove THC all while keeping in the good stuff, such as terpenes and minor cannabinoids. This helps Live Rishi attain the highest quality full-spectrum hemp oil for our products. We prefer to use this method over other, less-accurate bulk extraction processes such as ethanol or CO2.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are aromatic compounds found in plants, including hemp. Terpenes are not only responsible for the distinguished, pleasant aromas of many plants, but also have been linked to numerous health benefits. Click here to learn more about terpenes on our blog. Because Live Rishi CBD uses chromatography as a primary extraction technique, we preserve many of the valuable terpenes found in our full spectrum hemp products.
What are minor cannabinoids?
In addition to CBD, the typical hemp plant has over 100 different minor cannabinoids. These other cannabinoids are linked to additional benefits that can extend beyond just CBD. Some of the minor cannabinoids you’ll see in our tests include CBG (Cannabigerol) which potentially hosts a number of relaxation and stress-relieving benefits, along with CBN (Cannabinol) which has been associated with better sleep. Because Live Rishi only uses full spectrum hemp extracts, you will be able to enjoy products that are more than just CBD.
