Our Mission

NewBridge is committed to improving the mental and physical well-being of people by producing the most effective CBD on the market and blending it with functional ingredients to create premium wellness products.

We provide customers with a complete, naturally balanced array of cannabinoids and other beneficial phytonutrients, from plants harvested and purified at the peak of freshness. We do so with deliberate focus on the fundamentals of safety, quality and consistency to create CBD-infused products valued by both partners and consumers.

We pledge to be respectful to earth and its resources entrusted to us. We develop innovative technology and environmentally friendly solutions that allow us to avoid using chemically-based processes. We partner with progressive agriculturalists focused on the stewardship of their land and families, because environmental sustainability is critical to both plants and people.

Transforming the Future of CBD

NewBridge has pioneered state-of-the-art processing technologies for the CBD industry. With the patented Shockwave Power™ Reactor and advanced patented separation technologies, NewBridge can extract CBD oil from fresh biomass using only water and low-pressure energy waves. This breakthrough technology platform rids the CBD supply chain of toxic chemicals, doesn’t require time intensive drying and can be done efficiently at large scale in order to meet the world’s growing demand for CBD oil.
