Curiosity about CBD distillate is at an all time high. The cannabis and hemp industry is primed for take-off and anyone not on board is getting left behind. All this interest in the Cannabis and Hemp industry has brought many newcomers to the field. In this article we will answer the simple question: What is CBD Distillate?
When you consume most CBD products you are consuming some form of oil refined from a hemp plant. Hemp plants contain precious cannabinoids that have been revealed to have extraordinary health benefits and low side effects in most people. These Cannabinoids are basically contained in every part of the plant and must be extracted for consumers to use. Hemp plants also contain other unwanted materials that the extraction/refinement process takes care of. Here I will outline the process of going from hemp to distillate:
Extracting CBD and other cannabinoids can be done a few different methods. This is your initial cannabinoid haul, but with this haul comes some unwanted fats and lipids and maybe even plant matter. This is what we call crude oil. Refining this oil is where distillation comes in!
CBD Distillate is created from refining crude oil and removing unwanted solvents, fats, and lipids. This involves boiling off the unwanted material leaving you with a pure cannabinoid mixture. This is the purest form of full spectrum oil you will find on the market.
