It is an exciting time in the United States hemp industry, with hemp finally becoming legal to grow after almost 80 years of hemp prohibition. Quadratum was founded in early 2015 with the desire to help improve the quality of people's lives by being a provider of safe and affordable hemp based CBD oils. We strive to provide products that add energy, balance, and value to your daily life while also being an education source about hemp based therapies.
Why Buy CBD from Quadratum?
Our CBD products are created using condensed CO2 in order to extract the CBD from hemp. Supercritical CO2 Extraction is a safe and effective method used to extract CBD. Compared to traditional solvents like butane and alcohol, CO2 is non-toxic and evaporates, so it leaves no residue or plant contaminants. CO2 is also "cold", so it reduces the risk of thermal degradation of the CBD, whereas common solvents like butane use high temperatures, which destroy plant nutrients. The hemp used to make our products is grown bio-dynamically, which means it is grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, and synthetic fungicides. Our products are also "whole plant" CBD, which has been shown to be more effective at reducing inflammation and is better for clinical purposes because it is dose dependent (meaning if they take more, they will see more benefits.)

Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Extraction Technology - The Gold Standard for CBD
Using condensed CO2, CBD is extracted from hemp using state of the art extraction technology that varies pressure and temperature to extract only the purest forms of essential CBD oil.
Supercritical CO2 Extraction is the safest, most effective method used to extract CBD as compared to traditional solvents like butane and alcohol, CO2 is non-toxic... we breathe it. It is Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA for use in food products.
No toxins, heavy metals, or hydrocarbons come in contact with the plant material, leaving no room for contaminants. CO2 wants to be a gas at room temperature, which evaporates and leaves no residue or plant contaminants. Propane and alcohol/naphtha solvents require additional purging to separate plant material from the solvent to try and ensure that no contaminants are left in the plant material.
CO2 is "cold." We extract the CBD at native cannabis temperatures, greatly reducing the risk of thermal degradation of the CBD, whereas common solvents like butane use high temperatures which destroy plant nutrients.
Showcasing plant science is Quadratum's number one goal. We have the ability to tune our CO2 extracted oils for our products using increasing or decreasing pressures and/or temperatures.
CO2 for extractions comes from recycled materials in industry. Common sources of CO2 come from hydrogen and ammonia manufacturing and fermentation of ethanol. Extractions using CO2 does not add to the overall atmospheric CO2 levels.
