Farms & Genetics

Unique Grow Operations

Located in Colorado, the farms are some of the largest hemp farms worldwide. Seeds are NOT planted, cultivars are planted. Cultivars ensure a more consistent and reliable end product.

  • Specially bred cultivars, non-GMO.
  • Proprietary high cannabidiol CBD/lowTHC cultivar.
  • Proprietary high cannabigerol CBG/lowTHC cultivar.
  • Phytocannabinoid and terpenoid rich strain.
  • These specialty plants produce 18% CBD and less than 0.1% THC.
  • Agora hemp provides a rich full spectrum profile of all medicinally valuable and diverse phytocannabinoids & terpenes.

Not All Hemp Is Created Equal

It took over seven years to perfect Agora’s truly one-of-a-kind organic strain of cannabis to produce the highest CBD and lowest THC yield anywhere. Plants were identified and crossbred bred to yield the highest cannabidiol known in medical cannabis. As a result, Agora has the highest CBD to lowest THC ratios known in the industry because they fully remove ALL THC in their final process without any chemicals whatsoever. Agora’s phytocannabinoid rich medicinal hemp is currently a standard in Universities, Laboratories, and Specialists worldwide.

Extraction & Purification

Agora’s products are Extracted & Purified in a 50,000 square foot, state of the art extraction facility. Their proprietary extraction technology allows for high levels of phytocannabinoids, while eliminating all unwanted amounts of THC and chlorophyll. A chromatography technique allows for the identification and removal of all traces of these unwanted amounts. Meanwhile, what is left is a full spectrum profile of healing, non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids and synergistic compounds such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC) and over 40 other naturally preserved terpenes.

Absolute consistency and quality is achieved through Agora’s rigorous testing. On-site chromatography testing at the Agora facility and third party batch testing ensures accurate levels of phytocannabinoids while confirming the absence of THC through their proprietary processes. The end result is the highest quality full spectrum cannabis derived from phytocannabinoid-rich oil that contains no solvents, heavy metals, or pesticides.

Quality, Consistency, & Transparency

Agora’s products undergo rigorous testing for all healing properties found in cannabis using advanced HPLC (HPLC- DAD) equipment to confirm for US standard results. Besides testing for potency, they also test for microbiological contamination, heavy metals, and pesticides. The certificates of analysis (CoA) of all the products they produce are published which we provide for your inspection.

Terpenes

Plant Derived Terpenes

Terpenes are some of the most powerful synergistic compounds found in the cannabis plant. Terpenes greatly influence the effects of the unique cannabinoids found in cannabis and they play a key role in your wellbeing. Terpenes are not unique to cannabis since they are found in many other plants. What is unique to cannabis is the vast amount and diversity of terpenes present within the species.

Agora CBD provides the highest quality and most potent, organic, pure strain specific plant derived terpenes.

All the terpenes incur third party testing; certifying potency, organic purity, and quality of every Agora product.

The Entourage Effect

Agora’s Zero-THC Phytocannabinoid Hemp Oil has zero detectable levels of THC.

 

Agora’s one-of-a-kind purity and standardization allows for the distribution of Agora CBD into any international market. Even those that have a zero tolerance for THC.

The extraction and purification process produces a full-spectrum oil, containing all cannabinoids and terpenes naturally found in hemp.

As stated, the uniqueness of Agora’s phytocannabinoid-rich oil is the result of years of research and genetics. Their immaculate cultivation technique consistently produces over 18% cannabidiol (CBD), less than 2% THC (a chemical-free process then removes all THC to virtually zero), as well as 2-5% minor cannabinoids such as cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), and Cannabichromene (CBC). Years of research and dedication produces plants that are abundant in phytocannabinoids with over forty plus terpenoids. Their cultivating process ensures a consistently efficacious product that contains the highest ratios of healing and synergistic compounds.

The proprietary, patent-pending extraction process allows Agora to completely remove all THC while flawlessly preserving the natural synergistic compounds found in their carefully bred plants. This means Agora CBD has only phytocannabinoid-rich registered industrial hemp oils, grown in accordance with section 7606 of the US Farm Bill, and is virtually devoid of THC while rich in all other compounds. Together, these unique compounds work synergistically to produce the much sought-after “ENTOURAGE EFFECT”.

Chromatography and third party testing ensures accurate measurements of the phytocannabinoids in Agora CBD while confirming the absence of THC through their proprietary processes.
