In order to turn CBD into a pure and viscous oil, there are multiple layers of reﬁnement that must occur first.
When creating CBD distillate you must first extract all cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids from the plant. In order to keep these components as pure as possible you must go through multiple different refining processes which are called “fractional” and “short path distillation”. This process allows the oil to reach up to 99% purity.
Because all compounds of the plant such as THC and Cannabinoids have different boiling points you must separate each one through a hydrocarbon or CO2 solvent based extraction process. This allows the valuable and volatile compounds to be removed from the plant itself, then further removing the unwanted compounds. This process is what we call “winterization”.
Next, Isolated cannabinoids must undergo a decarboxylation process which allows the medicinal benefits of the plant to reach their full potential, this is done by heating these components up in order to activate them.
Finally, the material is run through a short path steam distillation or rational distillation chamber in a series of multiple passes to purify the CBD to its isolated state.
Every batch of CBD oil is tested through third party company to ensure a rich high quality product.
