We love this question. There are four key elements that make us different:
USDA Organic. In an unregulated industry, it's more important than ever to instill trust with consumers, especially with respect to their health. We've insisted since the beginning to partner with farms, processors, and co-manufactures who follow strict USDA guidelines. We take our CBD manufacturing seriously.
Vapor extraction. We extract our certified organic hemp using vapor extraction, the cleanest and most effective method available. Fewer than 5 percent of all hemp (CBD) brands use clean vapor extraction because it’s more expensive than ethanol or C02 and as a result, a little richer in active compounds too.
Terpene focus. This is one of the key benefits of our clean vapor extraction method, it preserves the plant’s natural terpenes (think of them as essential oils) providing a higher concentration compared to other modern CBD brands. We’ll prove it, check out our batch results and compare them with others.
Slow hemp. We believe in learning from those who came before us. We believe in learning from the plants. We believe it’s all a journey. We believe in finding new ways to work that prioritize the planet. We believe in finding new ways to work that prioritize the planet. We believe in iterative research and holistic hemp product development. Because of this, our go-to-market time for holistic cannabis products is slower than most and we at Cerena are proud of it.
