Decarboxylation is the process of removing the carboxylic acid from a cannabinoid’s chemical compound. A cannabinoid is decarboxylated when it’s heated to the point of eliminating the carboxylic acid. By removing that acid group, the cannabinoid can readily interact within the body and bind to the receptors in the nervous system — specifically, the cannabinoid type 1 (CB1) and cannabinoid type 2 (CB2) receptors.
The final steps for making this cannabis oil involves the actual cannabis distillation process. Using vacuum pressure and heat, individual cannabinoids and terpenes can be separated from the decarboxylated extract according to their unique boiling points and molecular weights. In a vacuum environment, where the pressure can be strictly controlled, the boiling point of can be achieved at much lower temperatures to help prevent the loss of potency.
The extract at this point wouldn’t be very potent. THC, for example, is the well-known compound and active cannabinoid that produces an intoxicating effect. However, it’s tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), that’s found at this stage. THCA doesn’t produce an intoxicating effect. THCA becomes THC after heat is applied. This process is called decarboxylation.
THCA isn’t the only cannabinoid that needs to be decarboxylated in order to interact effectively with the human body. All cannabinoids in their acid form must first be decarboxylated. In fact, there is no THCA in distillate because it’s always decarboxylated.
Distillate is one of the most commonly made types of cannabis oil, often coveted by consumers for its potency. And because it has been stripped of virtually everything other than cannabinoids it is extremely versatile, capable of being consumed on its own or as the base of numerous other cannabis products.
The next major step in producing distillate is called winterization. It is a method to purify the crude extract of byproducts: plant waxes, fats, lipids, and chlorophyll. The crude extract is mixed with ethanol. The solution is then placed in a very cold environment for 24 to 48 hours. The impurities coagulate in the cold temperature and precipitate, or separate, falling to the bottom of the container. This is similar to baking a chicken: the excess grease and juices drip down into the pan and thicken when cooled. The crude extract and ethanol solution is then passed through a filter. After filtering, the ethanol is removed. Ethanol can be removed using a variety of techniques, such as a rotary evaporator or a falling film evaporator.
Full spectrum CBD distillate has shown more potential at providing benefits than pure CBD distillate alone. Some of the CBD distillates on this page qualify as full spectrum because they have been formulated with terpenes and cannabinoids.
The Kandypens Crystal features an all-quartz heating system that delivers smooth hits with fantastic flavor. It’s constructed of medical-grade stainless steel and features a 900 mAh battery. Other features include a sesh mode, four different voltage settings and the pen is covered under their lifetime warranty.
Industrial Hemp Farms offers 99% pure CBD infused with your favorite terpenes. Available in dozens of varieties including Mimosa, Gorilla Glue, Sour Diesel and Lemon Skunk. It’s a great value considering how many mg of CBD you get for the price and the amount of variety offered. And they are independently lab tested.
Ideal for vaping
CBD distillate may contain some traces of other cannabinoids, but in its purest form, it lacks the terpene content that is primarily responsible for the plant’s signature aroma. So that explains why pure distillate is actually odorless and flavorless, no matter which variety of plant it was extracted from.
Distillation is not a modern concept. It’s been used for centuries for making distilled spirits and liquors. Think of CBD distillates as the “hard liquor” of the hemp world. Both are made possible through distillation. CBD distillates are the most powerful version of CBD you can get. They generally range from 85-99% CBD! And vaping just happens to be one of the best ways to administer them.
Secret Nature full spectrum distillate cartridges are made with live resin extract. They’re rich in cannabinoids and terpenes for a tasty experience, with no artificial flavorings. They are available in 700 and 1200 mg CBD with many popular varieties like Gelato and Bellini, and are third party lab tested for purity.
A lot of the CBD vapes out there do not actually provide full spectrum CBD, they are generally made with just CBD. On the other hand, most full spectrum CBD oil tinctures are not even suitable for vaping. If you’re looking to vape full spectrum CBD, keep reading to learn more about the best CBD distillates you can get.
Private and white label manufacturer
Full-spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant with all the cannabinoids and plant compounds. The distillate we use in our oils has undergone a distillation and winterisation process in order to preserve only the cannabinoids and some terpenes. This is the most refined purest full spectrum extract where synergies between the individual cannabinoids work best. It is very potent and therefore ideal as raw material for your products.
Benefits of using full spectrum distillate oil
Full-spectrum CBD oil is free from chemicals and pesticides. It is all-natural and makes a great nutritional supplement. It is beneficial in natural pain-relief treatment.
