At Come Back Daily we are focused on providing our customers with the highest quality CBD possible so it is important to understand how some of our CBD products are made. To get CBD from the hemp plant, there is a process called extraction in which the plant is stripped of it’s cannabinoids and a concentrated solution is created. These are the major methods used to extract the CBD we carry.
- CO2 extraction. The super-critical (or sub-critical) CO2 method uses carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to isolate, preserve, and maintain the purity of the medicinal oil. When done well the end product is safe, potent, and free of chlorophyll or any solvents.
- Ethanol. High-grade grain alcohol can be used to create high-quality cannabis oil appropriate for vape pen cartridges and other products. But this extraction method destroys the plant waxes, which may have health benefits that are favored by some product-makers.
- Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology allows compounds like CBD to be safely broken down into smaller particles that provide higher bioavailability and therapeutic effects. Nano-emulsified CBD rapidly absorbs up to 80-90% of every dose into the bloodstream compared to only 35% with other CBD products in the market.
- Lipid Extraction. A lipid extraction uses fats, or “lipids”, to absorb and encapsulate compounds produced by hemp plants. Lipid extractions do not require the use of any harsh solvents or CO2. This preserves the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes. The bioavailability of CBD can be significantly increased when delivered in a lipid-based formulation. When delivered with lipids, cannabinoids can be absorbed through intestinal lymphatic transport.
