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.
