We intentionally select high-quality, organic ingredients, starting with USDA certified organic hemp. Our co-founder is a chemist who worked in cannabis analytical testing for years so we know what it takes to make QUALITY products.
Our cold-press method skips the use of chemical solvents and harsh treatments. We physically press hemp to collect our nutrient rich oil. Our only byproduct is compostable and fed to local chickens.
CO2 and Ethanol are solvents often disguised behind terms like "solventless" or "cold-extract".
These methods are still chemical extractions that utilize a solvent. At Upstream Organics, we are truly solvent-free.
Because we use a cold-pressed extraction method, we maintain all the nutrients, terpenes and other cannabinoids from the hemp plant, not just CBD. This plays into what is called the Entourage Effect; all the native phytonutrients and cannabinoids working together are more effective than the individual components. When other companies remove these natural elements, it requires the use of solvents and makes for a less effective product.
Before our products reach you, each batch undergoes 3rd party lab testing to ensure potency, accuracy, and safety. We individually fill, seal, label, and pack our products to guarantee the highest standard of quality is met.
