The Extraction of CBD

There are a few of ways to extract CBD from the marijuana plant, the most common being using a type of solvent, such as CO2, a liquid solvent or an oil solvent. This is done to take advantage of the therapeutic properties of the CBD, while not subjecting the user to the “highs” of the THC compound.

Liquid solvents find the flowers and trim of the marijuana plant put into a container. Then a solvent such as butane, isopropyl alcohol, hexane, or ethanol is run through the materials, and the remaining liquid after this process is your CBD oil. This process is the most common of the three.

CO2 extraction: With the assistance of a special machine, using three chambers, the plant materials are separated into a third chamber, with the first chamber containing CO2 (commonly Dry Ice) and the second containting your plant materials.
