About

Mission

TruKana was formed to create exceptional CBD products, made with the highest quality ingredients.  In other words, we want to offer a superior product that will actually work and contribute to your health and wellbeing.  We believe that in this rapidly growing, extremely competitive market, there is room for a premium brand that cuts no corners and wont sacrifice quality just to get to a lower price.

Sourcing

The Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) hemp we use is grown using organic farming practices and cultivated in the high altitude of Colorado in Colorado Springs at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains.  It is grown in full compliance with the landmark Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018, also known as the 2018 Federal Farm Bill.  Additionally our manufacturer is the world’s only hemp company issued a Certificate of Free Sale and a Manufactured Food Establishment License by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE).  These certifications help establish them as the industry’s premier hemp manufacturer and processor.  No other hemp company has met the requirements needed to be licensed as a Manufactured Food Establishment and receive a Certificate of Free Sale.  We have spent several years searching for and teaming up with the world’s leading farmers, scientists, engineers, chemists, veterinarians, formulators, and lawyers, which has ensured that our processes are world-class and our products are of the highest quality.

Our Hemp Plants

From naturally developed, proprietary genetic strains, our hemp plants naturally produce a high amount of CBD along with other cannabinoids.

  • 10-20% Cannabidiol (CBD)
  • 0.5-2% Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • 0.5-2% Cannabinol (CBN)
  • 0.5-2% Cannabichromene (CBC)
  • less than 0.3% THCA

The cannabinoids and dozens of terpenes in our strain have evolved naturally and are extracted and purified with the utmost care to preserve the components vital to our extracts and finished products.

Patent Pending Water-Soluble Nanoemulsion

The nanoemulsion includes a patent-pending water-soluble formula that uses optimized composition and a unique process to manufacture.  The average size of our hemp oil droplets in this form is 25 nanometers, compared with 100-5000 nanometers that are usually obtained by using the industry standard liposomal delivery method.  The small size of the nanoemulsion hemp oil leads to a larger surface area of the hemp oil droplets, leading to a much higher absorption in the bloodstream.

Due to their thermodynamic stability, nanoemulsions do not lead to phase separation (oil separating from water), thus enabling the formulation of stable products.  You can find this water-soluble nanoemulsion technology in our 25mg softgels.

Extraction and Purification

Using closed and cold processes to preserve terpenes and other desired volatiles, the proprietary chromatographic purification process selectively removes Delta 9- THC and other undesirable impurities from our hemp extract and purified oils.  The absence of detectable THC is confirmed through High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) instruments.

These proprietary processes do not expose the resulting hemp extracts to high temperature of adverse conditions, which ensures that our products contain all the synergistic compounds necessary for the entourage effect, essential for their efficacy and biological activity.  The latest methodologies preserve the plant’s terpene profile, eliminating potential degradation of cannabinoids and mitigating potential oxidation of other botanical compounds.

  • THC is removed to a non-detectable level of 0.0%
  • All other components, minor cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids are preserved
  • No detectable solvents
  • No heavy metals (meeting the toughest regulatory requirements)
  • No pesticides (meeting the toughest regulatory requirements)

Our manufacturer has been certified by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) as a producer of THC-Free (non-detectable THC) Phytocannabinoid-Rich hemp oil that meets the requirements for human consumption as well as legal distribution.  As a result CDPHE has issued a Certificate of Health and Free Sale.

Labs & Testing

Our manufacturer works with independent labs across the country to test our Phytocannabinoid-Rich (PCR) hemp oil.  Accurately testing our products is of utmost importance to ensure our customers receive the highest quality products in the industry.  This results in a final product that is completely free of solvents and meets the toughest regulatory requirements for heavy metals and pesticides.  The independent labs are qualified and capable of accurately testing the critical aspects of our products using validated test methods necessary to meet our commitment to critical quality attributes.  You can view the lab reports for each product by scrolling through the images of each product until you reach the associated lab sheets.
