CBD is everywhere. Over the past few years, hundreds of farms in the US have started growing hemp for CBD and a lot of CBD brands have also emerged from this fact. Due to its exceptional popularity you can find countless CBD products that will all vary in quality, appearance, aroma and consistency. So what exactly is it that makes CBD, CBD?
What About the Cannabidiol
CBD or Cannabidiol is a natural compound that is found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Cannabis Sativa is the type of flowering plant in the cannabis genus from which we get both hemp and marijuana.
Cannabidiol or CBD (as we will refer to it) is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. It is extracted and mixed in all types of products in different states and concentrations.
We at PURE5™ Extraction Machines have completely closed the production process by producing everything from seeds to shelf. Our proprietary technology is a key component for the production of our high quality products with high medical performance. We use full-spectrum extracts that are obtained at room temperature, preserving the vital properties of the plant, and increasing the potency of the product in which this extract is used.
What makes us unique?
COMERG™ makes Ethanol, Hexane, SHW and Steam extraction systems and the best way for extracting full spectrum plant resins with a complete terpene profile is none of the above. That is why we promote the systems with R134a for extraction of hemp. Although, knowing the solubility of all above solvents we often use co-solvents combinations for extracting and isolating other specific fractions beside oils as example, powder, resin, and tinctures.
Making your extraction strain specific requires a full understanding of the flower, the solvent and the process involved. Using a good grown strain extracted with a nonpolar solvent preferably by liquified gas at room temperature is the most pristine way of extracting it. In the last 6 years, PURE5™ hemp extraction equipment produced the best strain specific oils extracted with their proprietary developed nonflammable and most safely selected modified hydrocarbon method utilizing R134a removing the full spectrum of terpenes and cannabinoids in their acid and converted forms.
The process known as the PBX™ (Pure Botanical Extraction) achieved large customer recognition in vapes, tinctures, dabs, and isolated terpene markets.
How to find out which cbd product on the market has proven quality?
Tinctures, creams, balms, vape cartridges, extracts and others are some of the CBD products you can find. Everyone will be advertised most likely as containing full spectrum extract, broad spectrum or isolate. It may be logical at this point to assume that a product produced with a full spectrum of raw hemp oil will have a deeper, darker color than a product made with 80% pure distillate. Well, unfortunately it’s not that simple! Unless you purchase pure extract, your CBD is probably mixed with carrier oil or other material. The concentration of extract to the carrier can also make a massive difference in the color, smell and viscosity of the product. This makes it extremely difficult to say which product is superior or more “clean” only by its appearance.
There is no specific answer to the question: “What color should my CBD oil be?”. For certain when you buy a bottle of whisky from a local department store the natural color is well known and established. When you buy an extract people usually look for the chemically altered and bleached color instead buying the natural.
It is impossible to determine the concentration or quality of CBD by simply looking, smelling or tasting a CBD product. PURE 5™ plant processing company have been embracing their own patented technology for gentle extraction delivering the natural pure appearance of the CBD extracts without alteration of chemicals and temperature.
