You may be a little surprised to learn the many ways you can get in your daily dose of CBD (cannabidiol). While CBD edibles, oils, and topicals are popular, just as many people are looking at more potent products in the form of CBD distillate concentrates, CBD hash, and more.
What is CBD Distillate?
CBD Distillate is a golden, viscous oil that typically contains around 70-80% CBD. Distillate is a highly refined extract that has undergone the distillation process to remove certain cannabinoids from the original full-spectrum oil. Usually the goal is to remove the THC and other alkaloids to leave only CBD isolate in its purest form.
Distillation is the process of purifying a liquid by evaporation and condensation, in order to remove specific compounds or impurities for a more pure version. You may recall science experiments in school where you boiled salt water to remove the salt, leaving your container full of only pure, clean water. A similar distillation process is administered to CBD oil to produce the more refined oil known as CBD Distillate.
Does CBD Distillate have THC?
Due to the intense distillation process, CBD Distillates or CBD Isolates contain virtually no THC. As with any production oil, it’s nearly impossible to say whether the distillation has removed every single trace of Tetrahydrocannabinol from the original full spectrum oil. However almost all commercially available CBD distillates contain less than 0.03% THC, which renders any lingering amount of THC ineffective at producing any noticeable effects.
How to Use CBD Distillate?
Use a Dab Rig
Essentially, distillate oil is a concentrate, which means you can use it on your favorite dab rig if that’s what you like. Keep in mind, concentrated oils can be a bit easier to use in a dab rig if you pair the rig with a health stone, which is a porous stone that you use in the rig instead of a nail. However, with easy-to-dispense syringes like ours, you could easily add just a tiny dab to your nail for smoking just the same. As an adage, if you have CBD distillate that has crystallized, this can make it easier to use the cannabinoids on a dab rig.
Try Homemade Edibles
Since CBD distillate is highly concentrated, it is fantastic for adding to your own edibles. Plus, you don’t get any hash-like flavors in whatever you make. Since distillates have already gone through the process of decarboxylation, which activates the innate cannabinoids through heat, it’s already primed for activate in your edibles. You don’t have to search far online to find some good recipes. For new home cooks, introduce CBD to your dishes in small doses (5mg increments) until you find the right amount.
Add CBD to Vape Carts
Since CBD distillate is free from carrier oil additives, it can be used to create your own vaping fluids to add to your vape carts or favorite vaping liquid. For example, you could add a few drops to a cart and mix it with your preferred flavored vape juice for a combination of therapeutic quality and flavor.
