CBD Extraction UK

Methods of CBD Extraction

There are three core methods of CBD extraction. The two most basic and inefficient methods are called Carrier Oil and Isopropyl Alcohol. Isopropyl extraction is a solvent based method which is one of the least expensive options, it is relatively easy and quick but is regarded as dangerous due to the flammable liquids used. A toxic residue can also be left behind from the solvents. Ultimately, these methods can damage the CBD oil and create a less pure product. The carrier oil method is one of the oldest methods, it is a safe method and cheap to carry out however the output needs very specific storage requirements which don’t work well for many CBD consumers.

To avoid producing an inferior product at All About CBD we utilise a far superior extraction method – Supercritical CO2 Extraction which uses carbon dioxide to get pure plant extract without having to use hazardous chemicals or solvents which potentially could contaminate the end result.

Why Supercritical CO2 Extraction?

Supercritical CO2 Extraction is the most expensive method of production it’s also the most reliable, it is seen as the best method – working to preserve all the beneficial qualities of CBD. The finest and purest CBD oil is created by stringently sticking to this approach. This means that our clients can guarantee products supplied by All About CBD are of the highest quality.

The detailed process of Supercritical CO2 Extraction can be seen in this video which explains visually how the extractions works.

Not only is this the favoured method of extraction, it is also considered to be a more environmentally friendly and safer extraction method than other fossil fuel based methods making it the best method for our CBD products.
