Our process

Developed over years of intense research with a commitment to the highest quality standards, transparency and traceability.

From the beginning, Commonwealth Extracts has been dedicated to developing the best, most reliable process. We are 100% vertically integrated, which means we control 100% of what goes into our products from soil to packaging. We use only Subcritical CO2 fluid extraction processes in our state-of-the-art, cGMP certified facility. This ensures our products are pure and safe.

Commonwealth Extracts is a full-service, CBD Hemp extraction and product development company. We offer custom product formulations and development, packaging and logistics. We can handle any size order and have worldwide relationships with brands both large and small.

Proprietary Genetics

Our unique strain of hemp flower withstands a variety of stressful conditions ensuring consistent crop yields with the highest potency, purity and quality available.
