Just as the changing color of tree leaves signify season change, so do the changing colors of the hemp plant. It is hemp harvest season on the Receptra Naturals farm, located in beautiful Colorado. There are several reasons that Receptra CBD Oil is known for its purity and effectiveness. It all starts on the farm with compassionate farmers who understand the importance of thoughtful and detailed growth and hemp harvest techniques.

It All Starts with Plants and Passion 

Our farmers cultivate their own clones using Receptra’s quality genetics, ensuring that the plants meet the highest standards and fulfill all of the requirements of the Colorado Department of Agriculture. We start with carefully selected mother plants and soil located in a fertile Colorado valley that was once known as a mecca of agricultural production for surrounding towns. Colorado provides a great climate for optimal hemp growth.

Organic Growing Practices 

Each of our hemp plants are cultivated on-site and carefully planted by experienced farmers and Receptra staff from throughout the entire company who understand the intricacies of the plant. Ladybugs play an important part in keeping pests away from the hemp plants and also provide a fun environment and splash of color in the fields. Plants are both rain and drip irrigated and there are no chemicals used at any point during the planting, growth or harvesting processes.

Hand Harvesting Difference

Our staff proudly harvest the fully grown plants and hang up the good stuff to dry. Too much moisture means the plant is a little sticky and difficult to work with. Once enough of the moisture evaporates, the plants are hand-shucked to remove stalks and stems while preserving the very best parts of the plant to create the most effective products.

Many CBD companies use machines for this process. Machine shucking can result in prematurely breaking apart the phytocannabinoids which can leave an excess amount of chlorophyll and fats in the oil. This can cause an unpleasant flavor and reduce nutritional value. Hand shucking preserves the great terpene profile Receptra products are known for. How do we accomplish hand-shucking all of our plants? The entire Receptra family from the corporate office to our chemists, come together in on the farm with enthusiasm and a lot of muscle to get the job done! 

On-Site Processing

The hemp flowers are naturally sun-dried before being hand-shucked. Once separated out, the good parts are then ready for the conversion to Receptra Naturals pure CBD Oil through clean cold ethanol extraction. The pure product is then handed off to our in-house chemist to provide the finishing touches to create the Receptra Naturals products that we all know and love.
