CBD 101

What is Cannabidiol (CBD)

Chances are you know at least one person claiming to experience significant benefits using CBD. Their enthusiasm may have sparked your curiosity. If you’ve been trying to learn about CBD by questioning the CBD users in your social circles, their explanation of CBD may have you wondering if they got the facts straight. It happens.

While we admit there is a lot of potentially confusing terminology to decipher, CBD is not difficult to understand. You likely want to know what CBD is, how CBD works, and what CBD could do for you.

CBDistillery™ CBD Is...

Hemp Derived
Naturally Farmed

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad Spectrum products contain an array of naturally occurring cannabinoids, plant terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and plant proteins of the original hemp source. Similar to Full Spectrum products, these compounds work together in what is known as the "Entourage Effect," multiplying the potential health benefits.

Includes MOST active hemp-derived cannabinoids

*Third party tested to ensure non-detectable levels of THC (less than .01%)

Isolate CBD

CBD Isolate is created by removing all other molecules, except CBD, from the Full Spectrum extract, leaving the CBD in an anhydrous state. All that remains is a white powder that is at least 99% pure CBD. This powder is added into various CBD Isolate products such as oils, edibles, topicals, and vapes.

Includes only high purity hemp-derived CBD

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS)

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is a collection of cell receptors and their corresponding molecules (agonists) in the human body. The ECS is responsible for regulating and maintaining many key functions of the human body. When the ECS is in balance, one experiences homeostasis.

CBDistillery™ Production Process

CBDistillery™, the leader in the CBD industry, oversees every aspect of production from initial soil testing to packaging and distribution. When you select CBDistillery™ hemp-derived products, your CBD oil is sourced from non-GMO industrial hemp grown using natural farming methods. We use only food-safe extraction methods, and our products are verified by an independent third-party testing facility for purity and potency.

Before our naturally cultivated, non-GMO industrial hemp can be utilized to create your CBD product, the cannabinoid-rich oil must be extracted from the plant. The extraction process selected depends on how the extract will be used.

The CBD oil in our broad spectrum products is CO2 extracted. At standard temperature, carbon dioxide is a gas. When pressurized, the CO2 liquefies and pulls the desired components from the hemp as the plant matter is filtered through a series of pressurized chambers. As the pressure is released, the CO2 converts back to its gaseous state and is released from the oil. Finally, the extract is distilled.

The CBD used for our isolate products is extracted with ethanol. After the initial extraction process, the oil is heated to activate the cannabinoids (decarboxylation). A third process (winterization) then removes the unwanted fatty acids, cannabinoids, terpenes, and other plant components. After processing, all that remains of the original hemp extract is a crystalline CBD powder.

Importance of Lab Testing

Your CBD experience is largely determined by the purity and potency of the products you select. Far too often people place their trust in companies selling low-quality, potentially contaminated products that contain far less CBD than specified on the product label. That is why it is essential to protect yourself from a disappointing experience by purchasing your CBD oil from a reputable source.

CBDistillery™ sets the standard for quality. All our products are created using non-GMO industrial hemp grown in the U.S. using natural farming practices and are third-party tested to ensure quality and consistency. We follow stringent industry guidelines set forth by the FSA. Every CBD product is lab tested for quality and potency. You can verify the potency, purity, and safety of all CBDistillery™ products by viewing the third-party test results on our website or scanning the QR code on your product label.
