CBD distillate is a potent concentrate distilled from CBD hemp flower. Through the process of distillation, CBD (and some cannabinoids) are extracted and isolated from the other components of the plant. Distillate is generally a translucent amber color, and has a viscous and runny, oil-like texture. It is typically vaporized with a weed pen, but it’s so thick that it can also be dabbed or used to make edibles. Pure distillate doesn’t have much of a taste or smell.
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.
Why Buy Elevated Wellness CBD distillate?
Ideal for vaping
A good reason to use distillates is because they are perfect for vaping, which is one of the best ways to administer CBD. This is due to the higher bioavailability of direct inhalation versus other methods of cannabis consumption. Distillates are not just extremely potent, but your body is able to absorb more of it when vaporized. Some people prefer not to vape any PG/PG or artificial flavorings (aside from organic terpenes). CBD distillates are the best choice for them because they contain little to no additives. They’re about as pure as it gets.
Aside from the overall convenience factor of vaping, another advantage of distillate is that it tends to produce very little odor, no matter how you consume it. Some people also appreciate its versatility, since distillates can be consumed in a variety of ways including vaping, dabbing or smoking.
Distillate happens to be edible and can be used for making potent CBD-infused recipes. You can actually just swallow some with a glass of cold water (to prevent it from sticking to your teeth.) Eating distillate is not as efficient as inhaling it, but the effects are longer lasting. It’s also very discreet which is great for non-vapers.
Full spectrum CBD
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.
For this reason, some manufacturers reintroduce these terpenes back into the finished product. Distillate provides high levels of CBD while the added terpenes take care of the flavor. This also helps to facilitate “the entourage effect”, which describes the synergistic interaction between terpenes and cannabinoids. Terpenes also serve as a natural thinning agent which gives it a better consistency for use with vape cartridges that tend to have small wicking holes.
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.
These are some of the main reasons why people use CBD distillate:
- A clean way to consume CBD
- Extremely potent
- Little to no odor
- Suitable for vaping, dabbing, edibles etc.
- Can be formulated with terpenes
- Available in full spectrum
- Convenient and discreet
- No artificial additives or flavorings
Which is Better: CBD Isolate or CBD Distillate?
Consumers seeking all the benefits of CBD, whether it be treating anxiety or inflammation, without also consuming other cannabinoids should seek out CBD isolate infused products.
Some consumers are sensitive to THC, have adverse effects or need to avoid consumption of THC in any amount due to work-mandated drug testing. For those that do not have negative effects or concerns of consuming very small amounts of THC, full-spectrum distillates might provide more relief that isolate CBD. Full-spectrum distillate has the greatest effectiveness of these products due to the different cannabinoids working together synergistically. This is often referred to as the “entourage effect.” Users reap the benefits of CBD as well as all other cannabinoids naturally present in the Cannabis sativa plant, including a very small amount of THC. THC has been shown to have pain-reducing and sleep-inducing effects but can also increase anxiety for some users. Although it is very small in concentration, it’s important to be mindful when choosing your extract. Research is relatively sparse regarding the therapeutic benefits of CBG, when compared to the apparent wealth of information available on THC and CBD but there are early studies linking the compound to a whole host of potential therapeutic uses, such as treating glaucoma, decreasing inflammation and killing drug-resistant bacteria. CBN reduces intraocular pressure in the eye, so it can be used in the treatment of glaucoma. CBN also fights free radicals in the bloodstream, and it performs similarly to THC in pain reduction treatments.
Does CBD distillate get you high?
Not particulary, CBD is a non-psychoactive component of hemp, and most CBD distillate contains well below the 3% THC limit. CBD distillate won’t get you high, but it can still provide a very relaxing and euphoric experience, depending its potency level and terpene content. Please note, if you are sensitive to THC, then CBD Isolate will be a better suited product for you. CBD Distillate contains some THC and may cause adverse effects.
