What is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate, also called CBD crystalline, is an important ingredient that is used in many CBD products in addition to working as a potent CBD supplement.

If you’re looking for a product with over 98% potency, look no further than our CBD isolate. Some CBD isolate contains CBD in its purest form, providing you with a highly-potent CBD product. Utilizing strict processes and procedures to ensure that extraction occurs in an environment that is controlled. This leads to top-of-the-line purity and a guaranteed consistency.

CBD Full Spectrum Distillate?

CBD distillate is created to contain certain vitamins and minerals that are missing from a pure CBD isolate. From the way our distillate is made, it’s important to note that full-spectrum distillate still contains traces of THC. In addition, other elements, like terpenes, are also retained in the distillate and help to maintain the flavor profile unique to that CBD flower. This combination of cannabinoids and compounds is what works together to create our full-spectrum CBD distillate.

Depending on what condition you’re trying to treat or the effects you want from CBD, full-spectrum CBD unlocks the full potential of the plant. This allows the different cannabinoids, vitamins, and minerals present in this full-spectrum distillate to work together.

Broad (THC-Free) Distillate?

When you require a product that is completely and totally free of THC, look to our broad THC-free distillate. This distillate has the same properties as a full-spectrum distillate just without any traces, or properties, associated with the presence of THC.

The removal of THC through a unique process, leaving the CBD and terpenes intact while removing the unwanted side effects of THC.

What is Hemp Terpenes?

When we say terpenes, we are referring to the aromatic chemicals that are produced by hemp plants. These terpenes work together with the CBD to create the “entourage effect,” potentially maximizing the therapeutic effects of CBD by having different compounds work together. Hemp plants alone contain more than 100 different terpenes.

With hemp terpenes, you are able to provide a full-spectrum blend that can be added to isolate products to create this “entourage effect” and allow for easy CBD dosing. The hemp terpenes are high in three types of terpenes. Each of these terpenes has different properties and come with their own flavors and set of benefits.

Terpenes are aromatic chemicals produced by many plants, including hemp. They can also be found in cinnamon, resin, ginger and even essential oils – shortly speaking, in plants which are characterized by intense, captivating aroma.

What is Hemp Flower?

Known for helping people relax without feeling high, CBD flower is the perfect way to find balance and encourage the entourage effect. The hemp flower still contains all of the natural compounds, including CBD and terpenes. Many consider there to be specific medicinal advantages of high CBD and low THC in a flower. In flower form, hemp flower can be used for baking, smoking, cooking, vaping, or turning the CBD flower into capsules for precise CBD dosing.

Some choose to mix hemp flower with, particularly strong marijuana to help mellow it out, potentially decreasing anxiety. Others appreciate flower because they enjoy the routine of smoking, but don’t want something that will get them high, allowing them to experience relaxation on a unique level.

FDA Regulation

The FDA — the U.S. Food and Drug Administration — recently had a hearing about updating the regulation of CBD. Right now, the FDA regulates drugs, including drugs containing marijuana. But the declassification of hemp products, and the legalization of marijuana in certain states has created a gray area for the FDA. In general, the FDA will step in on drugs and products containing CBD and THC sparingly. 

Now, the FDA will have to consider new regulations for the legal forms of hemp and CBD, figuring out what CBD products they consider safe and what regulations they should create around these substances.

And the continued demand for hemp and CBD products is still there from the consumers — even if some people remain skeptical. In fact, many people have started businesses making and selling CBD and hemp products after they experienced the therapeutic benefits of CBD for themselves.
