How we Got Started
Many people find out about CBD Hemp oil by chance, either by talking with a friend or coworker, surfing on the net trying to solve health issues or even just watching the nightly news. For me, it was meeting the representative of a local manufacturer after a gathering of functional health practitioners. She asked if I heard about CBD hemp oil. She began telling me about the endocannabinoid system and recommended I read an article by Dr. Ethan Russo, titled, “Clinical Endocannabinoid Deficiency (CECD):Can this Concept Explain Therapeutic Benefits of Cannabis in Migraine, Fibromyalgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and other Treatment-Resistant Conditions?”.
I began asking my clients if they would like to try CBD hemp oil. Many of them experienced a relief of symptoms from poor sleep and arthritis pain to hot flashes and headaches. I opened the CBD Garage in 2017 to make CBD hemp oil accessible to everyone with exceptional education and consulting to get you started.

Why Shop at the CBD Garage
Welcome to the CBD Garage. A one-stop shop for all your CBD Hemp Oil needs. We feature a wide selection of the best CBD hemp oils produced in Colorado. It’s important to know that you are getting the quality and products that are promised. We’ve vetted all our wholesalers so you don’t have to do your own research. As with any new industry, there have been some growing pains. There have been reports of products that contain heavy metals and pesticides, extraction methods that use solvents or products that do not contain the stated phytocannabinoids.
Our mission is to have you avoid the pitfalls and disappointments of poorly sourced and manufactured products. None of the products sold here contain hemp tainted with heavy metals, extracts made with solvents, tinctures that contain no cannabidiols (CBD) or products that may contain THC. All our manufacturers use high quality manufacturing and testing methods to ensure the best products. Here are the standards by which we choose our products:
1. Quality Sourcing
The quality of CBD hemp oil is based on its source; where it was grown, how it was grown, and what is the species of cannabis (e.g., sativa, ruderalis, or indica) it is. It’s important that the soil is not polluted with heavy metals.
2. High-Quality Extraction Methods
We don’t sell CBD hemp oil made with neurotoxic solvents like butane and hexane which may leave unsafe residues that compromise immune function and impede healing. Most products are made with Supercritical (or subcritical) CO2 extraction. This method uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to isolate, preserve and maintain the purity of the medicinal oil. While this method is more expensive and involves complex equipment and expertise, it ensures quality. High-grade grain alcohol can be used as well to create high-quality cannabis oil appropriate for vape pen cartridges and other products.
3. Independent Lab Testing
Accurate testing of the product is essential to ensure product quality, potency and purity. Lab testing also ensures the product is free of microbiological contamination, heavy metals, and pesticides.
