Our broad-spectrum distillate is a CBD-rich extract sourced from organically grown hemp plants. To obtain broad-spectrum distillate, the plant material must first undergo a proprietary purification process, which produces crude hemp oil extract. This extract is then ‘winterized’ to remove waxes, lipids (fats), and other impurities.
Finally, this winterized extract is fractionally distilled using heat, whereby individual chemical compounds in the plant material, including trace amounts of THC, are removed at specific boiling points to isolate CBD. What’s left is a highly-concentrated CBD distillate rich with terpenes, flavonoids, and phytocannabinoids. THC is the only compound removed for the broad-spectrum distillate.
As all compounds are preserved with the exception of THC, broad-spectrum distillate maintains the “entourage effect”. This phenomenon is caused by the synergistic, team behavior of all compounds present in a cannabis specimen. This preserves the therapeutic integrity of the product as a “whole plant medicine”.
Not all CBD distillate is created equal, as many extracts contain heavily-cut oils, synthetics, pesticides, and other harmful chemicals. However, we stand by the premium quality and purity of all of our hemp-based distillates which are pesticide-free, solvent-free, and free of heavy metals. Our products undergo third-party laboratory testing to ensure purity, safety, and potency.
