1. something formed by distilling.
Distillation itself is an ancient practice. Humans have been distilling for centuries, primarily liquors and other distilled spirits. Hemp Distillate is essentially created using the same concepts, but a much different distillation result is produced.
CBD Distillate is a translucent oil extracted from organic hemp material and refined to remove plant waxes and other undesirable compounds. CBD Distillate is popular among consumers because it can be used in many ways and is one of the most versatile CBD products on the market. Quality CBD Distillates available from vendors like Sauce Warehouse are also some of the cleanest and purest hemp extracts you can find.
CBD Distillates are commonly used to enhance other CBD Products like CBD Gummies, CBD Topicals, CBD Concentrates, and more. Farm Bill Compliant CBD Distillate will always contain less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC.
More About CBD Distillate
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.
How Much CBD is in CBD Distillate?
It varies. The best way to know the amount of CBD in a distillate product is to check the COA. Here at Sauce Warehouse, we display COA’s for each product on every product page so you can make informed decisions before purchasing.
CBD Distillates & Isolates are the most potent CBD products you can use. Generally speaking, they will often contain 85-99.9% CBD. When using CBD Concentrates and vaporizing them using a dab rig or dab pen, the CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream faster and more efficiently than is possible via any other method of consumption. Vaporization is the best method of use if you are looking to experience immediate effects from this highly concentrated CBD.
Does CBD Distillate Contain THC?
Some CBD Distillates will contain THC. It is important to learn the difference between these types of CBD Distillate, known as full spectrum distillates, and the Zero THC CBD Distillates, known as broad spectrum distillates.
Full Spectrum CBD Distillate will contain up to 0.3% Delta-9 THC as well as the full spectrum of other cannabinoids present in the extraction material.
Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate will only contain CBD and other minor cannabinoids.
It is important to remember, however, that all broad spectrum CBD products may potentially have extremely small trace amounts of THC that lab testing were unable to detect. These small amounts usually won’t be enough to cause psychoactive effects or a positive result on a drug test, but we won’t say it’s impossible.
Does CBD distillate Get You High?
The simple answer, no. CBD is not a psychoactive compound and consuming it will not get you high. HOWEVER, Full Spectrum CBD Distillate contains up to 0.3% THC and some users are sensitive enough to THC that they WILL feel a ‘high’.
If you think you may be sensitive to THC, or if you have a low tolerance to THC, it may be wise to start with a broad spectrum CBD Distillate and only move on to full spectrum CBD products if you aren’t getting the results you are looking for.
How is CBD Distillate Made?
CBD distillate is the result of an extensive distillation & refining process which separates desirable cannabinoids from hemp plant material. This refining process converts the plant material into a concentrated & pure oil known as CBD distillate.
The process of making CBD Distillate requires specialized knowledge & skill. Certain aspects of the process may be dangerous for non-professionals to attempt, thus producing these types of distillates should always be left to the professionals. Creating quality distillate requires a specially controlled lab environment where precision to detail and proper equipment can be utilized to ensure the optimal results and most importantly the safety of those involved.
Crude Oil Extraction
This is the initial step in which cannabinoids are separated from the hemp plant material. This separation is either performed physically or chemically.
Physical separation is any form of extraction that relies solely on physical techniques such as pressing hemp material to extract rosin.
Chemical separation is any form of extraction that relies on chemical solvents to extract oil from the hemp material. An example of this would be CO2 or Butane extraction methods.
Depending on the extraction processes used, the crude oil extract may contain plant matter or other impurities that must be removed prior to the refining process. Some extraction equipment will have inline filters that prevent impurities from collecting with the extracted crude oil.
This next step removes chlorophyll, plant waxes, fats, and lipids from the crude oil extract.
Ethanol is mixed with the crude oil and the mixture is placed in an extremely cold environment for up to 48 hours. The cold temperatures cause the impurities and undesirable compounds within the oil to coagulate and drop to the bottom of the container, separating from the desirable compounds.
The crude oil extract and ethanol mixture is then put through a filter to remove the undesirables and leave behind a refined oil extract and ethanol mixture. The next step is removing the ethanol. The removal of ethanol from the mixture is often achieved using an evaporation process, such as rotary evaporation.
In some cases, an additional step is required, depending on the cannabinoids desired in the end product. For example, if the oil at this stage is rich in CBDa, but the manufacturer desires a CBD rich oil, the oil must be decarboxylated to convert the cannabinoid acids to pure cannabinoids. One reason this may be required is if the distillate is intended to be used in edibles. CBDa isn’t easily digestible and will not provide the effects that CBD provides when ingested.
Decarboxylation converts cannabinoid acids to more usable cannabinoids. In this process, carboxylic acid is removed from a cannabinoid in order to make the cannabinoid active in the body and able to bind to the endocannabinoid system. CB1 (cannabinoid type 1) and CB2 (cannabinoid type 2) receptors in the human nervous system are unable to bind with cannabinoids in their carboxylic acid forms.
Cannabinoids decarboxylate above specific temperatures. CBDa and THCa both tend to decarboxylate around 220 degrees Fahrenheit. Decarboxylation isn’t just required when producing CBD Distillate intended for edibles, but also when making edibles at home or with other types of CBD Concentrates.
Finally, the distillation process.
The decarboxylated distillate is then distilled using vacuum pressure and heat. Specific cannabinoids and terpenes are separated from the decarboxylated oil by adjusting the heat and pressure according to the boiling points and molecular weights of the desired cannabinoids.
Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate vs Full Spectrum CBD Distillate
There are essentially two main categories of CBD Distillate available on the market today. These are full spectrum CBD distillates, and broad spectrum CBD distillates.
Full Spectrum CBD Distillates contain up to 0.3% THC and a full cannabinoid profile.
Broad Spectrum CBD Distillates contain Zero THC and a broad spectrum cannabinoid profile.
What is Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate?
Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate is CBD Distillate that has been refined to contain only CBD and a few other minor cannabinoids. Delta-9 THC and all other THC molecules have been separated from the oil during the extraction process.
Broad Spectrum CBD Distillate is made to provide users with a THC Free experience. With a broad spectrum cannabinoid profile, these distillates are still able to provide users with effects from beneficial minor cannabinoids without causing any psychoactive effects or positive drug test results.
The broad spectrum experience is certainly more mild than that provided by Full Spectrum CBD Distillates. They will usually not provide the full entourage effect.
What is Full Spectrum CBD Distillate?
Full Spectrum CBD Distillate contains the full spectrum of cannabinoids present in the hemp plant.
Full Spectrum CBD Distillate is probably the most popular form of distillate on the market. These distillates provide the infamous entourage effect, and they contain larger varieties of cannabinoids and natural terpenes which are rarely found in broad spectrum Distillates and Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates.
The Entourage Effect
The Entourage Effect was originally a theory that has gained scientific backing and is now becoming more of a fact. This theory states that cannabinoids interact with each other to produce a unique "entourage effect". In recent studies the theory has been expanded upon to include terpenes. Terpenes when used with the full spectrum of cannabinoids are thought to amplify the entourage effect.
This likely explains why ‘true full spectrum’ CBD Concentrates and Full Spectrum Distillate products are so highly sought after by consumers. These products provide a more enjoyable experience with increased benefits.
What is the Difference Between CBD Distillate and CBD Isolate?
Hopefully now you have a better understanding of CBD Distillate. But you may be wondering what makes CBD Distillate different from CBD Isolate.
In most cases, CBD Distillate exists in a viscous oil form and contains not only CBD but also other cannabinoids.
CBD Isolate on the other hand is purely CBD. CBD Isolate is a white crystalline powder or in some cases pure white CBD crystals. CBD Isolate will only contain CBD.
Is Hemp Distillate the Same as CBD Distillate?
Essentially, yes. Hemp Distillate may be a more general term used to describe all distillate made from hemp plant material, while CBD Distillate is a narrower term used to specifically describe CBD rich distillate made from hemp material.
CBD distillate can also be made from cannabis plant material, so Hemp Distillate may also be used to describe CBD Distillate that was distilled from hemp flower.
Is CBD Oil and CBD Distillate the Same Thing?
The general rule of thumb is that all distillates are oils, but not all oils are distillates. CBD Oil is only a CBD Distillate if it has been refined in the same way CBD Distillate is refined to remove all other compounds and impurities. Many CBD Oils available on the market have not been highly refined in the way distillates are.
CBD Distillate for example, is often dabbable or able to be vaporized using a dab pen. Most CBD Oil does not have this quality because it contains plant fats, waxes, lipids, etc. that would prevent it from being vaporized and produce an unpleasant experience.
Are all CBD concentrates distillates?
Not quite. Typically, all CBD Distillates are a form of CBD Concentrates, but not all CBD Concentrates are distillates. There are many different types of CBD Concentrates and Hemp Extracts, we have essentially each type available for purchase here at Sauce Warehouse. Each of these different types are created using unique extraction processes and they have their own unique consistencies.
CBD concentrates could be considered relatively similar to CBD Distillates. These concentrates are also used to create other full spectrum CBD products including tinctures and edibles. CBD Isolate is considered a CBD Concentrate itself, which can be dabbed using a dab rig. Because CBD Isolate often lacks flavor however, it often has terpenes added to it in order to create a flavorful ‘CBD Terpsolate’ or ‘CBD Terp Sauce’.
Also, like CBD Distillate, CBD Concentrates are available in both Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum varieties. Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates are often created using CBD Isolate or CBD Distillate as a base, and minor cannabinoid Isolates and Distillates are added in for texture and to provide a broad spectrum cannabinoid profile.
Popular CBD Concentrates available at Sauce Warehouse:
CBD Live Resin:Extracted from hemp material that is frozen immediately after harvest to preserve terpenes and cannabinoids. CBD Live Resin concentrates are some of the most potent and flavorful on the market.

CBD Crumble:CBD Crumble exists in both true full spectrum and broad spectrum options.

How Much Does CBD Distillate Cost?
The cost of CBD Distillate varies depending on the quantity, quality, and the type of distillate. Full Spectrum CBD Distillate will often have a higher price than Broad Spectrum Distillate.
CBD Distillate with natural terpene profiles or high levels of minor cannabinoids can also cost more than a regular broad or full spectrum distillate.
I Know What CBD Distillate is, But What is CBG Distillate?
CBGA (cannabigerolic) and CBG (cannabigerol) are minor cannabinoids that are becoming more popular in the Hemp & CBD Industry. These can be separated from crude oil hemp oil using refining processes just as CBD is in order to make CBD Distillate. CBG Distillate is more often rich in CBG, but it can also contain prominent levels of CBGA. CBG is the parent molecule in cannabis & hemp plants that ultimately produces cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
What is CBG?
CBG, short for Cannabigerol is considered a minor cannabinoid. This is because in most strains of cannabis, it is found in concentrations of less than 1%. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is the precursor to the three main cannabinoids - tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA).
Specific enzymes within the cannabis plant break down CBGA and convert it into one of the three main cannabinoids. The acid is exposed to heat or ultraviolet light which triggers their conversion into THC and CBD. In most strains, CBGA is immediately converted to either THCA or CBDA. Thus, more THC means less CBG & CBD (and vice versa) by nature of how these compounds are synthesized.
CBG, like other cannabinoids, works via the bodies endocannabinoid system. When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout our brain (receptors called CB-1) and body (CB-2).
Why Use CBD Distillate?
CBD Distillate provides a clean method of consumption that is also a very potent and concentrated form of CBD. Dabbing CBD Distillate allows users to take full advantage of these high concentrations of CBD and other cannabinoids.
In addition, CBD Distillate can be used in vaporizers, edibles, tinctures, topicals, & more. Because it is often odorless, it is a convenient and discreet way to use CBD.
CBD Distillate is practically the most versatile form of CBD you can purchase, and the amount of consumption methods are vast.
How to Use CBD Distillate?
CBD Distillates are most often used by vaporizing them using a dab rig or portable vaporizer, sometimes called a dab pen. You can also vape them by filling your own vape cartridges or purchasing prefilled vape cartridges. Dabbing or vaping distillates produces a fine vapor that is essentially odorless. This allows for convenient and discreet dosing. The effects are immediate.
Dabbing CBD Distillate
Dabbing CBD Distillate is the most efficient and quickest way to administer large doses of CBD. The effects are immediate. This is due to the higher bioavailability of direct inhalation versus other methods of consumption such as edibles or topicals. If you would like to avoid fillers or cutting agents that may sometimes be present in vape cartridges, Sauce Warehouse carries pure CBD Distillates that can be placed directly in a vape pen or dabbed using a dab rig.
Dabbing Essentials Needed to Dab CBD Distillate
1. DAB RIG OR DAB PEN
A dab rig is essential for any serious concentrate connoisseur. These water pipes allow for cool water filtration of vapor, and if you purchase a smaller rig meant to preserve terpene profiles like those made by MJ Arsenal, you will enjoy better flavor compared to a dab pen or other methods of use.
Dab pens are better if you will mainly be using CBD Concentrates on the go or in situations where you need to be discreet about dabbing.
2. BUTANE TORCH OR E-NAIL
If you are going with a dab pen, you can skip to the next essential item. But if you are using a dab rig, you are going to need a heat source! The cheapest solution is a butane torch. Butane torches as the name implies are fueled by butane that can be purchased at pretty much any gas station these days. You want to make sure the butane torch itself is of high quality. Many torches out there are made with cheap materials and will not last very long. Sauce Warehouse carries high quality butane torches from trusted companies like Blazer Torches and Maven Torches. When using a torch, you may also want to invest in a small tabletop timer so you can time your dabs to be taken at the perfect temperature. Generally, you want to wait about 40-50 seconds after heating your banger until it is red hot.
E-nails are another option for heating your banger. These devices feature a controller box that plugs in to the wall and allows you to set a desired temperature to be maintained throughout your entire dab session. A coil that is attached to this controller box fits snugly around your banger to keep it at a consistent temperature. E-nails are good investments for those who dab daily and often, as buying butane to refill a torch can get costly when refills are needed frequently.
Sauce Warehouse has organization stations available for purchase that not only hold q-tips and isopropyl alcohol for cleaning your banger, but they also feature built in dab timers! These are perfect for keeping your dab sessions organized, clean, and enjoyable.
There are some cool new rigs out on the market now that feature a built-in temperature control system. These rigs are called ‘e-rigs’. Popular brands like PuffCo make these e-rigs and they have become a big hit within the cannabis community. CBD Concentrates can be used in these rigs without the need for a butane torch or an e-nail. Most of these devices are chargeable with built in batteries like a cell phone.
3. DAB TOOLS
Dab tools are used to remove ‘dabs’ of CBD Concentrates from their containers and place them inside dab pens and heated bangers when using a dab rig. It is important to purchase only quality dab tools from trusted vendors as cheaper tools made overseas may contain toxic coatings that could potentially burn off into your concentrates when inhaling and cause health concerns. These tools are usually glass or stainless steel, any tools with odd coatings especially paint should be avoided at all costs.
There is a plethora of other Dabbing Accessories that you might eventually want to invest in, such as dab pads which are used to set dab rigs on, but the above accessories are the primary essentials that will allow you to begin dabbing CBD Concentrates with ease.
Alternatives to Dabbing
As an alternative to dabbing or vaping CBD Distillate, you can easily make your own edibles or beverages at home. Sauce Warehouse has included instructions on each product page that describe in detail the process you can use to infuse your favorite recipes with CBD using CBD Concentrates and CBD Distillate!
Distillate can also be placed on bowls of CBD Hemp Flower, or within a joint or blunt. Sometimes distillate is ‘twirled’ around the outside of CBD Pre Rolls and coated with kief or isolates.
What is a CBD Vape Pen / Distillate Pen?
CBD Vape Pens or CBD Distillate Pens are reusable, or disposable vape pens that contain pure CBD distillate oil. These pens usually feature a cartridge filled with CBD distillate that contains a heating element which is connected to a battery that powers it. The heating element converts the oil in the cartridge to a vapor which is inhaled through a mouthpiece. These pens take the complexity out of dabbing and are a great option for dosing CBD on the go.
CBD Distillate Syringes at Sauce Warehouse
Sauce Warehouse carries CBD Distillate Syringes that make consuming CBD Distillate a breeze. These glass syringes can be used to apply a dab of CBD Distillate directly to a dab rig or dab pen, under the tongue, or into your favorite food/beverage.
