The difference is in our roots
In 2014, we developed our first batch of hemp extract, sourced and distilled ourselves, as an honest alternative to a growing CBD market enamored with profits. Situated atop a geothermal aquifer in the Colorado Rockies, Sawatch has continued to cultivate all our hemp locally. We’re proud to say our products don’t come from some place else.
Today, our team operates a year-round grow operation, cultivating our plants in greenhouses using 100% sustainable processes.
Sawatch was built on a foundation of values that make us successful - a commitment to quality and rigor in our process and exemplary customer service.
The benefits of a rigorous process
We’re committed to providing our customers with the best CBD experience possible and process is at the heart of that. We use extraction methods that maintain the natural integrity of our flowers and we test for quality and purity throughout the production cycle to ensure the best product possible.
Sawatch exclusively uses the NES Vapor Distillation™ process to extract cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes from our organically grown hemp without the use of chemicals or harsh solvents. We pass heated air through our hemp flowers to evaporate cannabinoids and terpenes from its surface. The resulting vapor is collected and condensed into a full-spectrum high CBD extract.
To aid in preserving hemp’s natural terpene profile and ensure a higher potency, we extract our hemp oil using flash activation, a process that takes two seconds. Terpene-rich extracts are required to experience the full effects of CBD and other cannabinoids.
An honest product for honest people
Using local, Colorado-grown hemp and natural essential oils, we offer pure hemp oil, salves and other products for consumers who care about what they put in their bodies.
Our clean extraction methods forgo the use of harmful solvents or chemicals, leaving our product completely free of chlorophylls and carbonic acid while imparting a neutral, nutty, sweet flavor to mix well with both food products and nutritional supplements.
Throughout the production process we place high importance on the preservation of the natural terpene profile of our plants. As a result, our terpene-rich extracts are more potent, helping you to experience the full effects of CBD. We’re confident that our extract is the top naturally-extracted hemp extract on the market.
