Sequoya is the European leader in hemp extraction, CBD formulation & production in the highest possible standardsLEARN MORE
Custom facility geared to pioneer in developing new products & efficient mass manufacturing.
We have taken cannabinoid formulation & CBD production to the next level, well beyond the existing cannabis industry standard, starting by using best of the breed lab standards from cosmetics, food and pharmaceutical industries.
Sequoya’s state of the art laboratories are designed to analyise, apply innovative R&D and mass produce a broad spectrum of cannabinoid compounds that act as ingredients in mass produced consumer packaged goods and pharmaceutical products by major brands worldwide. Sequoya’s laboratory is versatile and designed to supply major brands across key industries; namely, cosmetics, food & beverage, nutraceuticals, supplements and pharmaceutical products.
Everything begins with the extraction stage and has a direct impact on product quality, the versatility of products and the efficiency with which later stages operate during production. The desired quality and consistency of raw extract simply can’t be compromised, that’s why our primary extraction line consists of Vitalis Technologies SFE CO2 extraction machines.
This method is the most common when extracting large volumes of cannabinoids. When CO2 is heated it undertakes both of a gas & liquid properties simultaneously, becoming what is called a supercritical fluid. In this state the supercritical liquid acts as a solvent and slips into porous plant materials, enabling clean and accurate separation of the desired plant crude extract. Therefore, with respect to plants like hemp or cannabis, the supercritical fluid gently dissolves the membrane of the trichomes capturing their active and sought after compounds.
Supercritical systems produce a substance with the consistency of peanut butter. Higher temperatures and pressures used in supercritical systems can extract much larger molecules such as omega 3 and 6 lipids, waxes & chlorophyll that are removed through a process called winterization—leaving behind just the sought after pure cannabinoid oil
This method is ideal when extracting terpenes or more delicate aspects of the plant. Subcritical CO2 extraction is a similar process to supercritical; except it uses lower pressures & temperatures than supercritical CO2 extraction.
This process is longer and produces somewhat smaller yields over the same period, however it retains and protects fragile plant constituents like essential oils, terpenes and other sensitive compounds & chemicals within the plant. These are highly desirable when producing full-spectrum hemp or cannabis products and particularly extracts for the premium cosmetics industry. These temperature and pressure differences result in very different cannabis, hemp or herb based products.
At the heart of Sequoya’s facility is the Quality Analysis, Quality Control Department. The QAQC validates batches across all production stages, specializes in cannabinoid testing, hemp biomass analysis & production validation for consumer goods producers, CBD extractors and universities across Europe.
Leading innovation across extraction methods, refined cannabinoid formulations, production efficiency processes and continually raising the bar in cannabis & cannabinoid production standards.
Utilizing top laboratory instruments the world has to offer coupled with some of Europe’s most talented staff Sequoya delivers a wide range of hemp derived products as cannabinoid based ingredients for consumer goods manufacturers worldwide.
Sequoya’s operations are strictly standards based and fully certified. Namely, as an EU GMP Food Grade Certified facility all stages adhere to the highest possible standards, including HACCP and fully Food Safety Compliant and Food Safety & Sanitation Certification (Chief Sanitary Inspectorate).
