Distillates are hemp extracts that are stripped of undesirable compounds and materials to yield a pure and highly refined oil. This CBD Distillate Oil is the base ingredient of numerous CBD products across the market including CBD vape cartridges, CBD Concentrates, CBD Gummies, and other CBD Edibles. This highly refined distillate usually has little flavor, taste, or aroma.
CBD Distillate is used to enhance other CBD products because it offers a simple and clean method of infusing desirable cannabinoids into a product that may be lacking them. The most common forms of distillate are CBD (cannabidiol) oil, and THC oil. In the hemp industry specifically, many new alternative cannabinoid distillates have recently become popular such as Delta 8 Distillate. Generally, the most prominent cannabinoid in the oil will be in the name of the distillate.
As previously mentioned, CBD Distillate often lacks flavor and aroma. This has allowed for the creation of many unique CBD Products, especially CBD Concentrates. Manufacturers and processors can add their own terpene profiles to produce the specific taste and aroma they desire. A downside to these products, however, is their inability to produce the natural effects and the entourage effect that occurs when using a product containing the natural cannabinoid and terpene profiles that were present in the extraction material. These are known as ‘true full spectrum’ products. True full spectrum CBD concentrates for example will always be prioritized here at Sauce Warehouse because of their ability to produce much more beneficial experiences than concentrates that consist of full spectrum distillate and added terpenes.
Despite CBD Distillate often lacking the benefits of the entourage effect, the high concentrations of CBD and other cannabinoids still make it a great product that allows for quick, easy, and versatile high dose consumption. Distillate extracted from hemp is not just limited to CBD rich oil either, Hemp Distillates can also feature minor cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, CBC, CBT, and others as the prominent cannabinoid. It is also possible to refine CBD Distillate even further into CBD Isolate, which contains only CBD or CBDa. This CBD Isolate looks like a white crystalline powder, but it can also be manipulated into actual CBD crystals using chromatography.
