Top CBD Distillate in UKDarren Clarke
With cannabidiol (CBD) use growing in popularity across the UK, many of us are turning to the internet searching for the best CBD. However, some of us may feel more confused than ever seeing a bottomless list of different CBD products and brands.
Considering this, we think you should keep it simple. And CBD does not get much simpler than CBD distillates.
CBD Distillate – What Is It?
CBD distillate is a refined CBD product, which is usually made to create other CBD products. It is a honey-like oil that can be used to create vape liquid, edibles, topicals and much more. You can cook with it or you can consume it as it is, in its raw form.
Normally when we hear the words “distillation” or “distillate”, we automatically think of creating the finest of potent liquors; brandy and whiskey to name a few. However, CBD hemp flower is distilled for CBD and its other precious compounds. Perhaps in the future distillation will be more strongly associated with hemp than alcohol.
During the process of distillation, CBD and other valuable and useful compounds are extracted from the hemp flower. All the harmful and useless parts of the plant are removed from the distillate, leaving a highly potent and holistic CBD distillate.
High-quality distillation is, without doubt, the most effective method to extract CBD from the hemp plant. After distillation, a potent CBD oil is created. The oil can range up to 99% CBD potency and you know that each valuable drop of CBD from the hemp plant has made its way to the CBD distillate.
CBD distillate usually has a translucent amber colour. Both in colour and in texture distillate is similar to bee’s honey with a thick golden syrup demeanour. In addition, an isolate or broad-spectrum CBD distillate tends not to have a taste or smell.
CBD Distillate – How to Use
One of the main reasons why so many people choose CBD distillate is its versatility. If you buy CBD distillate you are not restricted on how you can consume it. Due to its texture and lack of taste and smell it is useful, yet discreet, and can be added to tons of different things to give them a CBD twist. Let’s have a look at some of the ways you can add CBD distillate to your life.
Vaping is probably the fastest acting way to consume CBD. Vape smoke full of the CBD compound enters the bloodstream quickly from your lungs bringing the relieving and calming effects instantly.
Due to the oily texture of distillate, it works great as a vape liquid. Many people opt to vape CBD distillate for a number of reasons. Some smoke it for its purity and potency. With no added ingredients you can be sure you are smoking potent CBD. Others choose it as it is odourless. You can smoke it anywhere and you can be discreet about it. The lack of taste also makes many people feel that they are smoking pure CBD with no artificial flavouring.
On the other hand, if you want flavour and are willing to get creative, CBD distillate can be a great choice. You can add flavouring to your CBD distillate to create your own flavours. You might find this appealing if you want to have an affordable array of flavours at home. Rather than always smoking the same vape flavour until it runs out, you can get creative and make numerous flavoured e-liquids, ready to be vaped in from home.
Again due to CBD distillate not having much taste it can be added to all types of food and drinks. You can add it to your tea or to your coffee. CBD oil is not going to alter the taste or aroma of your freshly brewed morning cuppa.
CBD distillate can be added to your food. You can use it in cooked or baked foods and it is not going to leave your dish tasting different. CBD infused baked goods are becoming increasingly popular. You just need to follow a recipe and add your CBD distillate.
If baking is not something you are interested in, that’s fine because CBD distillate can be added to all kinds of foods. You can add it to your breakfast, lunch or dinner. A few drops can even be taken with a glass of water just like a daily supplement.
CBD distillate as an edible does not have the instant effects that vaping does. It can take 30 minutes to 2 hours to feel the full effects of a CBD edible. Although it may be slower to act, CBD edibles last for a longer time period and give you a more steady feeling of calm and relief.
Full-spectrum CBD Distillate
When we talk about CBD distillate, we usually are talking about the odourless and highly CBD potent broad-spectrum CBD distillate which aims to only contain CBD. However, for many, CBD is not the only beneficial substance found in the hemp plant.
This is why we give you an option and you can also buy full-spectrum CBD distillate. This is a distillate that has gone through the same rigorous distillation, squeezing all the CBD from the hemp plant. On top of that, some of the potentially useful substances are readded to the distillate. The compounds include other beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
A full-spectrum CBD distillate has regained some of the taste and odour of the plant. This is due to the terpenes which are essential oils that give hemp its unique and natural odour. If you want a CBD distillate that holds true to its natural earthy taste, then full-spectrum oil does not disappoint.
In addition to the flavour all these added substances assist in what is known as ‘the entourage effect’.
The Entourage Effect
For some people, CBD works better in its most natural form. CBD works best when it is consumed with the other natural compounds found in the hemp plant. The entourage effect is the argument that without terpenes and flavonoids, CBD is not as effective.
If you are inclined toward the healing properties of the hemp plant rather than CBD alone, a full spectrum distillate could interest you. It is one of the most naturally pure CBD products you can find on the market after the hemp plant itself.
Other CBD Concentrates
CBD distillate is for certain one of the best CBD concentrates you can find. All the same, it is worth knowing that there are other CBD concentrates you can find. Here is a list of some others:
- Rosin etc.
All concentrates follow a different extraction process. Each extraction method is different which can lead to different results. The CBD potency level changes depending on the extraction process. Also, the amount and potency of other compounds left in the concentrate can differ depending on the extraction process.
Distillate and THC
When you buy a CBD distillate you can be certain that the product has less than 1 mg of THC. This is so that all our products stay within the UK legal guidelines and that you buy and consume CBD legally.
With minimal THC in a dose of distillate, when you consume it, you do not feel high. You can go about your day as normal and still feel the healing benefits of CBD distillate.
CBD distillate goes through a high-quality extraction process, leaving a potent CBD oil. The oil is usually tasteless and odourless which makes it extremely versatile as it can be used in vapes and to prepare edibles. If you want a CBD oil still with its natural flavour you can find full-spectrum CBD distillate.
