How Royal Queen Seeds Produces Top-Quality CBD Oils


CBD or cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has risen to prominence as of late. Although CBD can be derived from cannabis plants, our source of CBD might surprise you.

We don’t just produce CBD oil. At RQS, we produce the best CBD oil in the business. If you want to know what makes our CBD oil so special and why it’s really fit for the most demanding customers, this blog will explain our processes. We can’t divulge all of our secrets, but we can back up the techniques that make our oil superior.

RQS CBD oil is actually sourced exclusively from high-CBD hemp varieties. These plants are organically cultivated in the EU and are not your average industrial hemp plants. High-CBD hemp typically contains 4–5% CBD and is legally cultivated across the continent. In fact, the European hemp industry is long-established and none of the plants contain more than 0.3% THC. The precious CBD is the primary motivation for the cultivation of these special hemp strains.


Most high-CBD hemp varieties are intersex plants, so they never actually transition to the flowering phase before they are harvested. The CBD comes primarily from the leaves and stalks. For this reason, the extraction method must be sophisticated in order to obtain pure CBD oil in quantity.

RQS uses supercritical CO₂ extraction to obtain the maximum amount of CBD. This clean, environmentally-conscious process guarantees pure, decarboxylated CBD from the hemp plant. Sure, you have probably heard of alternative petroleum-dependent extraction methods. We do not use ethanol, butane, or any other substance that could potentially taint the CBD oil or leave behind any nasty residues in the finished product.

By investing in expensive equipment and advanced extraction and filtration processes, we ensure our natural CBD is completely unadulterated. That’s right, all waxes, fats, and additives are removed to create the purest end product possible.

Furthermore, we employ a process to harness terpenes before extracting CBD. This allows us to retain the full spectrum of these volatile and health-boosting molecules. Once both CBD and terpenes have been isolated, they are infused back together in the best carrier oils.

Extracting CBD


Pure CBD isolate doesn’t taste good and is not highly bioavailable. Carrier oils are the key to increasing the bioavailability of CBD and make it easier for the liver to metabolise. Furthermore, when diluted with carrier oils, we can offer a range of CBD oil concentrations.


Olive oil is an obvious choice and has a myriad proven health benefits of its own. We dilute our CBD oil with olive oil to make it easier for the body to absorb. It also makes our CBD oil far more appetising. Olive oil infused with CBD has become such a popular supplement, it has helped CBD oil cross over into the mainstream.

Extracting Terpenes


Hemp seed oil is derived from cold-pressed hemp seeds and does not contain any cannabinoids by itself. However, as a carrier oil, hemp seed oil is second to none. By combining CBD with hemp seed oil, we unlock a natural synergy of the hemp plant. Hemp seed oil contains the perfect 3:1 ratio of omega 6:omega 3 essential fatty acids. By infusing hemp seed oil with CBD, we are able to offer our customers a genuine whole plant CBD oil.


Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil features a type of fat found largely in coconut oil. These molecules produce a host of benefits that make them an optimal carrier oil for CBD. Because of their shorter chain length, the body and brain readily use MCTs as an energy source. MCTs also help to ramp up the bioavailability of CBD and other cannabis phytochemicals, making the carrier oil the perfect match for our potent 30% and 40% CBD oil formulas.


Everyone’s circumstances are different, so it’s impossible to give a definitive answer on which concentration of CBD oil is the right one. However, it’s one of the areas that researchers are working hard to understand. For this reason, we have developed mid-strength and mild concentrations of CBD oil, as well as high-strength options.

To ensure the utmost quality of each oil, our products are tested in Swiss laboratories and analysed by third parties. This way, you can be sure that each RQS CBD oil you buy is of the finest grade available.

Whoever you are and whatever kind of lifestyle you lead, we have a variety of CBD oil formulas. Everyone has a unique endocannabinoid system (ECS), and in our catalogue, you can browse a selection of products that harness a sophisticated blend of cannabinoids and natural carrier oils.
