Who are they?
In 2016, three close friends decided to engage in a healthy lifestyle seriously. They believed in health, so they set out to change the ecosystem of dietary habits in Europe. They knew about CBD and its acclaimed healing properties. After a little investigation, they were astounded at what they found: Not a single brand on the market matched the standards they had defined for themselves as hardcore CBD enthusiasts!
Instead, dietary supplements of questionable integrity were advertised everywhere. Some of them claimed to be CBD products, but the friends knew this was not the case. They clearly saw what was lacking and stepped in to fill the gap for high-quality and effective CBD products. Thus, the first 25 acres of cannabis fields were planted in sunny Bulgaria.
Today, having gone through an enormous expansion, DragonflyCBD consists of a team of professional farmers and specialists in the scientific field. They work together, processing 1000 acres of cannabis fields in Bulgaria to give consumers an immaculate and quality product.
While people around the world have been using cannabis for centuries, DragonflyCBD works at the intersection of industrial, technological innovation and optimal human nutrition. Their products contain the minimum THC level possible and are processed through strict adherence to GMP standards. As one of Europe's leading manufacturers, they have made it their goal to embody transparency by ensuring all data concerning lab reports and product testing and analyses is freely available to clients and interested parties.
DragonflyCBD seeks to create profitable partnerships with Europe's leading professors and specialists in the field of cannabinoids. This serves to continually propel them to the forefront of the industry's latest developments. By investing in research and technology, they get to deliver distilled quality and health benefits in each product in the most unique and convenient way.
What do they aim for?
A GMO, or 'genetically modified organism,' is an organism whose genotype has been artificially altered by genetic engineering methods. This definition applies to plants, animals, and microorganisms. The World Health Organization gives a more precise meaning, according to which, genetically modified organisms contain genetic material (DNA) that has been altered and such changes would not have been possible through reproduction or natural recombination. DragonflyCBD grows all of their crops straight from the seed (with no artificial additives or alterations).
Gluten-free products are based on the exclusion of a protein known as gluten. It is found in cereals such as wheat, barley, rye, and a mixture of wheat and rye called triticale. DragonflyCBD keeps its ingredient list gluten-free and straightforward to cater for its gluten-sensitive customers.
DragonflyCBD is devoted to ethical and sustainable cultivation and testing techniques. They ensure that animals are never involved in the production of their CBD extract.
The CBD used for DragonflyCBD products is extracted from certified, natural Dragonfly Biosciences land. They only use sustainable, all-natural farming processes without pesticides, fertilizers, or any chemical.
How do they extract their CBD products?
The DragonflyCBD team believes that knowledge is essential. They also firmly believe that the most valuable product on the market is your trust, which is developed through rigorous testing of all their products. The fact that this extract is obtained from Cannabis Sativa L, and grown organically by a team of expert farmers makes DragonflyCBD a unique and trustworthy brand.
Transforming a high-quality Cannabis Sativa L. plant into a carefully formulated CBD product is not easy. The way cannabis is extracted plays an integral role in the overall quality of the finished product. At DragonflyCBD, they take pride in controlling every part of this conversion — from seed to shelf, so you always know what's in each bottle. As part of their mission to build a transparent and responsible industry, they want you to know precisely how DragonflyCBD oil is made and what makes it different from the rest.
DragonflyCBD controls the entire production process from the nurturing to the release of products in stores. Their extract is of high quality, ethical, and has undergone strict testing by external laboratories.
CBD and other cannabinoids are extracted from cannabis in several ways. Here’s a quick breakdown of the production process is as follows:
- Organic Cannabis sativa L. plants are cultivated and grown for five months before harvest.
- Once the harvest is collected, it goes through a processing plant which separates CBD-rich ingredients from leaves, seeds and stems. The modern equipment used processes between 25-100 kg of plant material per day.
- Absorption of components into ethanol is the next step, and its purpose is to extract the "full range" of phytochemicals. This extract includes CBD, other cannabinoids, terpenes, and waxes.
- This crude extract is then further refined using modern chromatography and fractional distillation methods.
- Finally, they formulate a pure CBD extract with organic hemp seed oil and bottle it at a GMP-certified plant, ready to be shipped to store shelves.
What do they use in their extracting process?
Ethanol is an organic substance, a volatile alcohol, and a product of natural biological fermentation that is in demand in several areas of production industry due to its many uses. It's also known by other names such as absolute alcohol, methyl carbinol, and ethyl hydrate.
In the cannabis industry, the most common extraction methods are either alcohol extraction with ethanol or supercritical extraction of CO2.
According to the DragonflyCBD scientific and expert team, ethanol extraction usually results in a better CBD product. Because ethanol is contained and extracted from natural plants, DragonflyCBD believes it is the best way to extract CBD.
What about CO2 extraction?
CO2 extraction produces clean and ultimately, potent CBD oil. As a matter of fact, CO2 extraction is an umbrella term that encompasses supercritical extraction, which uses lower temperature, and pre-critical extraction, which uses higher temperature.
DragonflyCBD as part of a healthy diet
DragonflyCBD believes that their products are not just used to pamper and indulge; they are a complete and separate ecosystem designed for people who really care to live a healthy lifestyle.
Nutrition is associated with all the vital functions of the body. It is the source of development in tissues and cells and provides for their constant renewal and maintenance. Inappropriate nutrition, both excessive and insufficient, can cause significant harm to human health at any age. It usually manifests as a dip in the level of physical and mental development, rapid fatigue, inability to resist the impact of adverse environmental factors, reduced work capacity, and even premature ageing and reduced life expectancy.
In light of this, the question is, as always "what then is the right path to optimum nutrition?" There are many theories, and almost every day, new ones are postulated. Some argue for a complete rejection of meat, others proclaim raw food a panacea for all diseases and troubles, and yet more entities develop combinations of products that supposedly allow the body to achieve full nutritional harmony.
Any such restrictions on nutrition can hardly be considered useful or acceptable at all. The human body is made up of very complex systems, and even then, individual body chemistries react to different diets in unique ways. Nonetheless, since CBD is a natural component of the body, it’s universally appropriate as a nutrient-rich addition to any diet. In addition, they are vegan friendly, non-GMO, organic, and gluten-free, thus bringing you the best in natural health benefits.
DragonflyCBD lab tests
Last but not least, lab testing! This is the most fantastic aspect of DragonflyCBD. They do their best to instil customer trust and confidence concerning their products. By ensuring that all their product testing documentation is freely available on the public domain, they set themselves apart and do what very few other brands do.
When you take any Dragonfly product, you know exactly what you are putting into your body. You have a right to access any of the following:
Certificates of Analysis are required to give all the necessary information about a product and its ingredients, making the customer feel confident about the naturalness of the oil.
- Organic certification
Organic certification is a process certification for producers of organic food and other natural agricultural products.
- Pesticide testing
This analysis examines the food for pathogenic bacteria, pesticides and drugs.
- Microbiology Testing
Microbiological tests are designed to test for the presence of microorganisms in a product.
- Aflatoxin Testing
Aflatoxins are poisonous substances produced by some types of mould fungi naturally occurring in all regions of the world. These mould fungi can affect food crops and thus pose a severe threat to human and farm animal health. This test is designed to identify them.
- Heavy Metal Testing
This test identifies chemical elements with metal properties and high densities that are found around us everywhere - in food, water, air, as well as in some products, due to the use of certain chemicals in industry.
