CBD is a non-intoxicating ingredient in cannabis or hemp, and most commonly sold in the form of oils, drops, or capsules. CBD extracts come in a variety of ways.
Derived from whole-plant flowering cannabis as part of a “full” spectrum of cannabinoids that include CBD, CBG, CBN, CBG, CBC, THC, THCa, and more. In general, if a product contains more than 0.3% THC, it can only be legally purchased at a state-approved dispensary. If it contains less than 0.3% THC, it is sold as a hemp product.
Beginning as a full-spectrum oil made from a whole-plant process, the distillate is further refined to remove or reduce specific compounds, specifically CBD, CBG, CBD, CBN, and CBC. Used by patients with anxiety, epilepsy, and more, this extract of CBD is the most common.
Without any additional cannabinoids to contend with, CBD isolate is ~99.9% CBD. Does not include other phytocannabinoids outside of itself.
Still CBD, only smaller! In this form, certain microemulsions are stable and water-soluble. Making it easier to incorporate CBD into beverages. Smaller particles may increase absorption in the bloodstream.
