How Is CBD Oil Made?

CBD oil starts out with raw hemp flowers, which are then put through an extraction process to remove the active ingredients. The first extract is considered full-spectrum and contains all the cannabinoids and terpenes in the hemp plant.

Other products can be made by further refining the initial hemp extract.

Additional processes can be done to remove everything from the extract except CBD. Once only the pure CBD remains (CBD crystals or CBD isolate), it can be mixed with a carrier oil to make a CBD isolate oil.

The amount of CBD added to the oil is what determines its potency.
