Distillate is a refined extract of the cannabis plant. It is typically taken from the hemp variety of the cannabis plant. The hemp plant contains a higher amount of CBD as compared to THC1. This means that the distillate that is taken from the hemp plant will be well within the legal limits of THC to be sold in retail stores.
As compared to other CBD extracts, such as CBD isolate, CBD distillate is not purely CBD. It also contains other cannabinoids that feature their own unique benefits2. It’s primarily used in edibles, for vaping and dabbing, and in beauty products and topical creams.
How Is Our Bulk CBD Distillate Produced?
The process used to make our distillates differ in some ways from other CBD extraction methods. It involves a multi-step process that takes the biomass of the premium hemp plant and distills it into a very pure final product consisting of CBD and other cannabinoids.
We can offer both broad spectrum and full spectrum distillates for your use.
Step #1: Crude Extraction
The first step in making distillate is called “crude extraction”. Crude extraction entails taking the mass of the cannabis plant and extracting a crude oil from it.
This crude oil not only contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes of the cannabis plant but also contains lipids, fats, and various other compounds.
These lipids, fats, and other compounds will need to be extracted in further steps in order to create the final product.
Step #2: Winterization
“Winterization” is the second step in the creation of thee distillate. In winterization, the crude oil taken during crude extraction is mixed with ethanol, which is a fancy word for alcohol.
This mixture is then placed in a container and refrigerated for 1 to 2 days. In refrigeration, the lipids, fats, and other compounds will form together and sink to the bottom of the mixture.
These impurities are then removed from the mixture, and the remaining ethanol is filtered out. The ethanol is typically removed using a rotary evaporator.
Step #3: Decarboxylation
The third step in creating CBD distillate is known as “decarboxylation”. Decarboxylation is a process that involves heating the cannabinoids in order to activate them.
Without the application of heat, the cannabinoids are inactive. This is the same reason that ingesting raw marijuana will not get you high, but cooking it and then eating it will.
Step #4: Distillation
Finally, after decarboxylation, the mixture has to go through the process of distillation. This typically involves feeding the mixture multiple times through some form of distillation chamber. The distillation will be repeated until the final product is as pure as possible.
Differences Between Isolate & Distillate
CBD isolate is more refined than distillate. When you’re getting CBD isolate, you are essentially getting pure CBD. On the other hand, distillate includes more of the other constituents of the cannabis plant, such as other cannabinoids. The CBD content of CBD isolate is typically above 99%, while the CBD content of distillate is typically around 80%.
The other 20% will be made up of various other cannabinoids, as well as terpenes and other constituents. Isolate will contain either extremely little or none of these other cannabinoids and compounds.
Distillate will typically have a slightly higher amount of THC. Still, if it is derived from hemp, it should be well within the legal limits to be sold in retail stores. The distillate will also have more of a flavor than CBD isolate, which will traditionally be flavorless.
The flavor of distillate is given to it by the other various compounds besides the CBD. This flavor is earthy and may be off-putting for some picky eaters. However, the various constituents that make up this flavor all have their own unique health benefits when ingested.
Benefits of CBD Distillate vs. CBD Isolate
While both isolate and distillate contain CBD, the difference is found in the other compounds or lack thereof. This is because distillate is more of a whole extract of the cannabis plant while CBD isolate is purely CBD. The other compounds, primarily various other cannabinoids, all have their own unique effect on the body.
Many people believe that these other compounds also increase the effects of CBD itself. The idea is that the entirety of the cannabis plant works in unison to provide positive effects on the body3. In this theory, it is better to take an extract that contains the full profile of cannabinoids and other compounds found in cannabis than it is to take any single one in isolation.
One big reason someone might prefer isolate over distillate is the taste. As we said before, CBD distillate has a more prominent taste than CBD isolate. CBD isolate also has a higher CBD content, meaning that if someone is looking purely for CBD than they are better off with isolate. Distillate still contains a very high amount of CBD, but other cannabinoids make up a much larger portion than they do in CBD isolate. However, these other cannabinoids may provide increased health benefits for certain individuals.
Another reason someone might prefer isolate to distillate is that there is less of a chance of ingesting any THC. THC is the cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that produces the psychoactive high we traditionally associate with marijuana. Neither CBD isolate nor CBD distillate will traditionally feature a very large amount of THC, especially those made from hemp. However, the extra refinement used in the creation of CBD isolate means that it contains less THC and other cannabinoids than CBD distillate.
Still, CBD distillate is a great form of extracted cannabis that contains plenty of beneficial CBD as well as other cannabinoids that work in unison with it to provide maximum health benefits. Unless you are extremely averse to ingesting other cannabinoids and a minimal level of THC, CBD distillate is a great form of CBD.
The presence of the other cannabinoids can be a large selling point for those with holistic mindsets. The fuller profile of cannabinoids can be said to work synergistically with CBD for a more prominent overall effect on the body than pure CBD isolate. CBD distillate has many uses and can make for some great CBD edibles, vaping solutions, beauty products, and topical creams. The distillate can also be dabbed.
What Cannabinoids Are Found In Distillate?
The biggest difference between CBD distillate and CBD isolate is the increased amount of compounds besides CBD. These include other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant as well as vitamins, terpenes, and fatty acids. Some of the other cannabinoids that can be found in CBD distillate include:
- CBC, or cannabichromene
- CBN, or cannabinol
- CBG, or cannabigerol
These other cannabinoids each have their own unique effects that work in tandem with CBD to provide more holistic benefits than you’ll get from pure CBD isolate. Let’s take a look at each of these cannabinoids and the unique benefits they offer.
CBC is anti-viral and antimicrobial, meaning it fights viruses and bacteria4. This means that CBC can help aid your immune system in fighting off illnesses. CBC also contains many of the same pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. So, for those with pain and inflammation, ingesting CBC along with CBD will provide more well-rounded relief.
CBG is predominantly mood-stabilizing. This is great for those who are taking CBD for psychological conditions such as anxiety and depression. Taking CBD along with CBG will help keep you feeling positive and happy, and will work to prevent mood swings. It is also thought to be a very effective “neuroprotectant”, meaning it protects brain cells from degeneration6.
This would make it an excellent cannabinoid for those who are either suffering from or susceptible to degenerative neurological diseases. Such diseases include Huntington’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis. These properties make CBG one of the most sought after cannabinoids besides CBD and THC, as well as very expensive to procure on its own.
Distillate Commercial Applications
Our bulk CBD distillate is just as versatile to use for commercial purposes as CBD isolate. It can be used to make edibles, vaping solutions, beauty products, and topical creams. It can also be sold on its own for dabbing, which has become popular in recent years.
CBD distillate can be added to food either raw or cooked and will provide all the benefits of any other CBD extract. It has already gone through the process of decarboxylation. This means it doesn’t have to be heated up in order for the cannabinoids to be activated. You can also add it to things like CBD butter.
Vaping and Dabbing
Vaping and dabbing are two of the fastest and most efficient ways to get CBD and other cannabinoids into the bloodstream. Vaping involves loading a cartridge with either pure CBD distillate or a mixture made with other ingredients such as flavoring into a “vape pen”.
This mixture can then be inhaled in vapor form. Dabbing, on the other hand, involves torching the CBD distillate and inhaling the smoke through what is known as a “dabbing rig”. Dabbing rigs and vape pens are both commonly available at smoke shops around the country.
Beauty Products and Topical Applications
Lastly, CBD distillate is a great ingredient for making beauty products and topical creams. The various cannabinoids featured in CBD distillate, along with the CBD, provide maximum relief for pain and inflammation. The other compounds that can be found in CBD distillate, such as fatty acids, vitamins, and terpenes, also provide very beneficial effects for the skin and hair.
