How is CBD Oil Made?

by Browns CBD Best CBD Products

With over 6 million users of CBD Oil in the UK, many will be wondering how this booming supplement is made. Well, it turns out there are many different ways to make CBD Oil, depending on the required composition of the final product. Read on to find out!

The Hemp

 

All legal CBD oils available in the EU and USA will be made from approved strains of industrial Hemp. Industrial Hemp is simply a variety of cannabis that was originally used for industrial purposes such as creating fabrics, seeds for consumption and fuel. However, Hemp is now being grown specifically for the production of cannabinoids due to its high levels of CBD, and low levels of the intoxicating compound THC.

It is worth noting that European CBD Oil must be made with EU-approved hemp strains that have a maximum content of 0.2% THC. This limits EU hemp production to under 100 different varieties of Hemp. Common strains include Futura 75, Ferimone and 
Finola. In the USA, however, the THC limit in Hemp is 0.3%. This small increase gives US farmers more varieties of hemp to choose from, many of which can produce higher concentrations of cannabinoids.

Once grown, the flowering tops and leaves of the hemp plant are normally separated from the stalk and stored ready for extraction.

CO2 Extraction

 

CO2 extraction is the most commonly used method of extracting cannabinoids from the plant. It works by forcing pressurised carbon dioxide through the plant which concentrates cannabinoids, terpenes, waxes and many other compounds into a thick paste.

This method involves highly expensive machinery and is sometimes considered the 'gold standard' of extraction. This is because it does not require the use of any harsh solvents commonly used in other extraction methods, so is extremely safe for the end-user. It can also be fine-tuned to determine the concentrations of different compounds in the final product.

 

Other initial extraction methods include Ethanol, Butane, Oil Extraction or Cold-Pressed extraction. After the initial extraction is done, the paste can either be blended directly with a carrier oil or go through further refining such as winterisiation or distillation to create more concentrated products.

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil tends to go through the least processing in order to retain the highest concentrations of beneficial compounds. Compounds such as cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and more, seem to have a synergistic relationship that makes the oil much more effective than using highly refined or isolated compounds.

Products made with CBD isolate or refined distillates will offer some benefits. In fact, it is preferable for people who are drug tested at work due to the lack of THC. But in terms of effectiveness and value for money, full-spectrum far exceeds the alternatives.
