CBD Distillate with Full Spectrum | Bona Voluntate

Distillate Full Spectrum contains all of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant as a whole. When making CBD products, the first result of extraction from a hemp plant is a distillate, which is usually from a plant with a high percentage of CBD. However, other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, CBN, and trace THC will be present in a distillate.

How is CBD extracted from plants?

There are three common methods for extracting CBD from hemp plants to produce distillate:

1. Extraction with super-cooled ethanol

Super-cooled ethanol extraction involves placing hemp plant material in a chamber and blasting it with extremely cold (approximately -40°F) ethanol. This super-cold ethanol blast shocks the plant materials, causing the oils and chlorophyll matter to be pushed out into a slurry.

This slurry is then passed through vaporization chambers, where the ethanol is completely evaporated away, leaving a clean and high-yielding, unrefined hemp plant extract. Cannabinoid oils, resins, terpenes, and cannabinoids make up this hemp plant slurry.

The slurry is then refined further by going through a short-path distillation process, which results in an amber/honey-colored hemp Distillate Full Spectrum that is ready for use. Bona Voluntate employs this method.

2. Extraction of CO2 or Supercritical CO2

CO2 extraction, also known as supercritical CO2 extraction, involves the release of highly pressurized carbon dioxide into a chamber containing ground hemp plant materials. As the pressure inside the chamber rises, the CO2 becomes supercritical, exhibiting the characteristics of its liquefied state. This forces cannabinoid oils, resins, unevaporated terpenes, and chlorophyll material from the hemp plant into a slurry.

This entire hemp plant slurry can then be refined using short path Distillate Full Spectrum to produce CBD distillate. The CO2 is then heated, converting it back to a gaseous state. This process removes CO2 from the hemp slurry. Bona Voluntate ® employs this method.

3. Extraction of butane (BHO)

Butane hash oil (BHO) extraction is used to make solid concentrates like glass, snaps, shatter, crumble, and so on. This method involves pressing whole hemp material into a glass cylinder with a fine mesh held over a second glass chamber. After the mesh has been packed, a butane torch is attached to the opposite end of the mesh and butane is fired into the cylinder. The plant material will release cannabinoid oils, resins, and terpenes into the second glass chamber, producing a viscous Distillate Full Spectrum.

How does Full Spectrum Distillate fit into CBD products?

Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD is typically composed of 65-75 percent cannabidiol (CBD). Some manufacturers sell the  Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD as is, while others add terpenes (the plant’s natural flavors) back in. This is a very viscous substance that will crystallize and solidify in the same way that fat does when it cools and settles, so it must be kept warm or have another substance added to keep it from crystallizing.

What types of CBD products commonly make use of  Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD?

In our products, Bona Voluntate only uses the purest CBD concentrates and  Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD. Our CBD tinctures and Concentrate CBD E-Liquid contain industrial hemp-derived  Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD.

What distinguishes Full Spectrum Distillate from Broad Spectrum Distillate and Isolate?

Broad-Spectrum is similar to Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD in that all naturally occurring THC has been fully mitigated while the other cannabinoids have not (CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN). After a distillate, an isolate is the second, more refined state. CBD is isolated from the other compounds in this form. It appears as a powder after extraction.
