What Is CBD Oil?
Full-Spectrum CBD: As its name implies, full-spectrum CBD oils have a complete cannabinoid profile, including CBD, THC, and lesser-known phytocannabinoids, as well as other essential compounds such as terpenes and flavonoids. Consuming full-spectrum CBD causes the “entourage effect,” where you’ll feel enhanced health benefits of all ingredients as they work in harmony.
CBD Isolate: CBD isolates are literally CBD products that only have 99% CBD as the ingredient, and are stripped from any other matter and phytocannabinoids. CBD isolates are the best type of CBD oil for people who want to get started with CBD.
Broad-Spectrum CBD: The broad-spectrum CBD is the middle ground between full-spectrum CBD and CBD isolates. It contains everything that the full-spectrum has except the THC, making the product non-psychoactive. If you want to enjoy the benefits of CBD oils without making you high, broad-spectrum CBD is the best you can get.
How Is CBD Oil Made?
Carrier Oil Extraction: The plant material is heated to activate its phytocannabinoids, then add it into a carrier oil. While it’s an effective extraction method without any risks of contamination, it results in low and inconsistent yields of CBD that aren’t ideal for mass production.
Steam Distillation: This process utilizes water that’s heated to turn it into steam, which then separates CBD from the plant material. Then, it’ll undergo distillation to obtain CBD oil from water. This setup is inexpensive and doesn’t leave any toxic residue, but it also results in inconsistent CBD concentration and can potentially damage CBD due to the uncontrolled heat generated during the process.
Solvent Extraction: In exchange for an expensive setup, this method is relatively more efficient than steam distillation. Here are the categories under solvent extraction:
Hydrocarbon solvent extraction uses hydrocarbons such as propane, butane, and petroleum. Although it has efficient and consistent results, the residues are potentially toxic.
Natural solvent extraction, alternatively, is safer as it uses natural solvents like ethanol. But they yield low CBD concentration and leaves chlorophyll that affects the product’s taste.
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Extraction: Being the most effective extraction method, CO2 extraction uses a supercritical CO2 that exists in its liquid and gas state simultaneously. The supercritical CO2 and cannabis plant material is subjected to a series of pressurized chambers that leaves pure CBD oil extracts with CBD concentration as high as 92%. However, this extraction setup is very expensive.
