Vermont Pure CBD: A New Way to Experience the Green Mountain State

Ask anyone and they'll agree; once you cross the Vermont border, something changes in the air. A grassy sweetness pervades in summer. Come winter, the snowcapped countryside mesmerizes skiers and snowboarders who have long known the region to be the best slopes on the East Coast. But Vermont has another hidden gem up its sleeve: an emerging CBD industry.

Vermont Pure CBD is one of the state's premier hemp growers and product developers. The brand's innovation and transparency have quickly catapulted it to the top of a quickly saturating industry. Founded in 2017 as Champlain Valley Organics, Vermont Pure CBD grows its organic hemp, extracts the oil and handcrafts the entire line of full-spectrum products in Shoreham, Vermont, relying on more than two decades of combined experience in greenhouse production, organic farming and laboratory analysis.

"We are one of the few CBD makers that grow its own hemp, extracts its own oil, compounds its own products and makes everything from scratch," says Vermont CBD owner Seth Lapidow. "No isolate. No remanufactured ingredients. Just the raw stuff compounded with care. Because we use organic ethanol, there aren't harmful solvents and no residual solvent in the oil or the products. Because of the polarity of ethanol, our products contain more of the constituents of the cannabis plant than other 'full-spectrum' extractions using CO2 or lipids."

For those without an in-depth knowledge of hemp or CBD, it's simple: Everything in the plant is in the product.

In addition to a diverse product line from tinctures and topicals to capsules and chocolate, Vermont Pure CBD laid the groundwork for a sustainable and responsible business model from the onset. The company composts all harvested plant material, and to offset energy use, the company installed 63 solar panels on the roof of its equipment storage quarters.

Vermont Pure CBD also makes available third party CBD product test results. In addition to its in-house analysis equipment, this additional step ensures that each product is represented with full transparency. And it's not just a bunch of numbers and statistics. For those that want to geek out on their CBD consumption, the company explains in detail how to interpret CBD test results.

For further information, Vermont Pure CBD's blog delivers valuable information for novice and experiences CBD customers alike, including why MTC oils are used in CBD products, the difference between full-spectrum and CBD isolates and more.
