How is CBD Processed?

 

CBD which stands for cannabidiol, is one of the 85  different compounds found in the cannabis plant. In order for CBD to be extracted, we must first start with a CBD-rich plant which can then be extracted in various ways each with its own set of pros and cons. Some extraction techniques tend to be safer and more effective than others. It is important to note that some cannabis oils are made from neurotoxic solvents such as hexane and butane may leave hazardous residue that could potentially compromise certain immune functions and disrupt the healing process.

All CBD products listed on the store use a CO2 extraction method which employs the use of carbon dioxide placed under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to preserve, isolate, and maintain the purity levels of the CBD oil. CO2 extraction process requires rather expensive equipment and a sheer operational learning curve but the final product is safer, more potent and free of any chlorophyll.

Not all CBD is created equally so we at CBDstore.co.za take pride in ensuring all standards of quality, purity and potency are met at all times.
