Cannabidiol (CBD) is becoming an incredibly popular product with many online sites emerging where you can buy CBD oil. While there are plenty of locations to get your hands on the beneficial product, it’s pretty confusing to get to grips with what exactly it is that you’re buying. A crucial part of understanding what you’re purchasing is understanding that a cannabis extract has a diverse spectrum of cannabinoids, other than just CBD. Let’s get a better look at exactly what this means.
CBD is one of more than 100 different cannabinoids that is possible to extract from the hemp plant. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that are responsible for giving hemp its different and exceptionally varied properties. CBD is one cannabinoid that is responsible for many of the favourable features of hemp.
Each harvest can hold a slightly diverse spectrum of different cannabinoids leading to slight variations in smell and taste being a natural product of the material.
Hempura Full-Spectrum Original extracts have been left in a relatively raw state after extraction and still contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids found in the original hemp plant. This leaves a rich, potent, authentic extract. When extracted, a high concentration paste remains, which can mix into hemp oil to the desired strengths. The extract comprises of a vast spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes, combining to deliver an outstanding array of benefits. You can identify our Full Spectrum Original CBD products by their dark colour, with a strong fragrance of cannabis from the natural terpene profile present.
You’ll find that all the products supplied by Hempura are either full-spectrum or broad-spectrum products – designed to keep the best that hemp has to offer completely intact. Some of the trace cannabinoids found in Hempura CBD products can include:
Hempura Broad-Spectrum Refined extracts are manufactured from the same base extract as our Full-Spectrum Original products but have been winterised, filtered and undergone a THC removal process after initial extraction. These filtration and refinement techniques allow specific compounds to be removed, such as the original hemp constituents, leaving a highly activated, golden oil, containing a refined cannabinoid and terpene extract.
Our Broad-Spectrum Refined extracts are classed as Zero-THC but still contain micro-traces due to being manufactured from organically grown Cannabis Sativa Hemp material.
The refinement process does inherently also remove some of the other trace cannabinoids found in the Original extract, meaning it is no longer a true full-spectrum, but rather a Broad-Spectrum refined extract. Both extracts contain the same amount of CBD, and both types of the extract are similar in nature and effect but have very different tastes.
In contrast to full CBD hemp extract products, CBD isolate products do not contain any spectrum of cannabinoids or terpenes, instead choosing to focus on a single one, in this case, CBD. The extraction process removes all the plant matter and also the other cannabinoids until the only one remaining is CBD in its crystal form. The CBD is then suspended in a type of additional carrier oil; like coconut oil or olive oil.
This process has its benefits and its negatives. The biggest downside is that all the other helpful cannabinoids and terpenes are removed. However, the result is a tasteless oil without a scent that offers the unique benefits of CBD.
