Hempika comprises experts who have spent years studying the beneficial effects of industrial hemp and continue to admire its enormous potential. We strive to provide superior products with a high concentration of cannabinoids so that each product represents the fruit of our combined knowledge, hard work and enthusiasm. In developing our products, we complement and upgrade traditional practice with the latest findings and a cutting edge approach that allows us to obtain superior plant extracts in line with the highest standards. Hempika is proud to use only organically grown industrial hemp and a modern supercritical carbon dioxide extraction method. But the path from seed to final product takes quite a bit of thought and foresight. It is only by taking careful steps that we can guarantee the purity, safety and best possible consumer choice in our final product line.
We plant only certified hemp varietis that contains a higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes.
Industrial hemp is ecologically grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.
Hemp flowers are picked by hand during optimal trichome ripeness by taking the upper third part of the plants.
Our hemp is dried naturally under controlled conditions. This prevents the growth of microorganisms and has a strong effect on the quality of our product.
Dried hemp is stored in premises specially designed for this purpose and in accordance with the principles and guidelines of good manufacturing practice.
Our laboratory determines the cannabinoid and terpenoid content/ratio of hemp material and analyses the plant’s microbiological suitability.
The process of extracting cannabinoids and other beneficial agents is carried out in accordance with the principles and guidelines of good manufacturing practice in the pharmaceutical industry. Supercritical carbon dioxide is used as the extraction solvent.
The primary extract contains a wide range of phyto-cannabinoids and other beneficial active plant agents such as terpenes, flavonoids, waxes and pigments. The delta-9-THC content is normally too high in the primary extract, so it must be further processed.
Separation of the primary extract is carried out in two steps, which results in resin of a golden and amber colour. Waxes and a portion of psychoactive THC are removed. The final product contains a wide range of cannabinoids and other useful substances that are naturally found in hemp.
Two complex and technically demanding procedures are required to obtain a high concentration of cannabidiol CBD (>99%) from the separated hemp extract. The degree of purity is controlled using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
