How Our CBD is Made

Despite its increasing popularity, CBD hemp oil is still not regularly or thoroughly regulated in its production; this means users should be knowledgeable and extra vigilant in how to choose quality CBD products.

Oily.Com sources and sells CBD products that have been manufactured using different processes in accordance with the type of CBD product being made. We ensure all steps are taken and that appropriate testing is done to foster quality CBD products.

That being said, it’s essential to understand how your CBD products are made as there are several different methods used to create variations on the products available. Here’s some information you should know, and that may be helpful in your decision on which products to use.

Whole Plant Extraction

Whole plant extraction is a method also known as “full spectrum.” This method extracts all elements from the plant along with CBD. Other elements can include THC, terpenes (anti-inflammatories), fatty acids, flavonoids, and more. This type of extraction produces the kind of CBD preferred by most users because they feel it is more balanced and effective.

The process our hemp goes through to develop full spectrum CBD products is as follows:

  1. Our non-GMO hemp is harvested and sent to a facility for extraction.
  2. A process called CO2 (carbon dioxide) extraction is used in order to extract the CBD molecule. In this method, CO2 is sent through a series of chambers that contain industrial hemp biomass; pressure and temperature are used to retain quality of oil during the process.
  3. The extracted oil is cooled in order to separate the fats and waxes for removal. 
  4. The oil is then heated to activate the CBD molecules.
  5. The remaining oil contains CBD, terpenes, and hemp cannabinoids; making for an effective and balanced product our customer's love.

Isolate Extraction

This type of extraction isolates the CBD from all other elements in the cannabis plant. This produces a pure CBD product, which can be useful for consumers who are sensitive to or do not wish to consume any THC.

Our CBD Isolate products go through a specialized process:

  1. Our non-GMO hemp is harvested and sent to a facility for extraction.
  2. During the extraction process, ethanol is used to extract the CBD and other important components.
  3. The extracted oil is cooled in order to separate the fats and waxes for removal. 
  4. The oil is then heated to activate the CBD molecules.
  5. The remaining oil now goes through a distillation process in order to complete the isolation process of separating the CBD element from all the other elements.

Dilution

Raw CBD oil, whichever process it has gone through for extraction, requires a process of dilution to give various potency options to consumers. Usually, oils such as coconut or olive oil, are used to dilute the raw oil to the desired potency. 

Colors

With CBD oil, color can be indicative of quality and potency. When you’re looking for a very high-quality CBD oil, for instance, pay attention to the yellow or gold appearing oil - these are filtered. In contrast, a dark green or green-ish colored oil usually indicates the oil has not been filtered and can contain plant fibers and chlorophyll still. The amber or brown colored oils have gone through a heating process and are considered more potent.
