Our oil is tested from field grown plant to product. First, it is tested at the farm to ensure it complies with the 2018 Farm Bill in terms of THC content of less than .3%. It is also tested for pathogens at that time. Following testing and approval our oil is then manufactured in an FDA registered, food grade facility into our health and wellness CBD products.
Terpenes are the organic essential oils that are found in plants that give them distinct aromas. Pine trees and citrus have high terpene counts as does lavender that is why they are so fragrant. Terpenes are very profound in cannabis as well. Terpenes are believed to provide more than just great aroma but also robust flavor to a plant. Many experts also believe Cannabis provide medicinal value.
There are more than 200 terpenes that have been identified in hemp. Only 60 of them have been studied for their potential medicinal benefits. The highest concentrations of terpenes are found in the leaves and flowers of the hemp plant and that is why whole plant extraction is preferred. These terpenes are essential and the root of the calming or energizing effects of our full spectrum CBD oil.
Blackbird Creek Farms – Not all Hemp is Created Equal

REGULATION & COMPLIANCE
Hemp products are legal to ship to all 50 US states and more than 40 countries worldwide as long as it has very low THC. It has no psychoactive properties so it cannot cause a high but is becoming known as a super-food. In 2003 the US Department of Health and Human Services secured a patent stating that some of the cannabinoids found in hemp are “antioxidants and neuroprotectants.”
Some people are confused over the legality of hemp, because hemp requires a growing/producers license and not available for general farming like wheat, corn and soy. Until 2014, only imported hemp was federally legal in the US. There are still an abundance of hemp products imported into the United States each year from China, Canada and Europe.
With the 2018 Farm bill many states are allowing farmers to grow, cultivate, process and market hemp with a license and university aligned application process. Working thru their state departments of agriculture and in coordination with their state universities these research projects ensure state and federal compliance.
Blackbird Creek Farms is a fully licensed and approved hemp farm able to grow, process and market CBD and hemp products by the state of Delaware in coordination with the Delaware State University in Dover DE.
OUR EXTRACTION PROCESS
Our full spectrum CBD oil is extracted using a super critical CO2 extraction method into a crude extract oil which is then mixed directly with MCT oil as the carrier oil. CO2 extraction is the cleanest and most expensive method of processing hemp into oil. It offers the highest quality and potency avoiding stripping the essential and beneficial terpenes and other plant extracts.
