Full Spectrum CBD Distillate | Bona Voluntate


Distillate Full Spectrum contains all of the cannabinoids found in the hemp plant as a whole. The first result of extracting CBD from a hemp plant is a distillate, which is usually from a plant with a high proportion of CBD. A distillate will, however, contain cannabinoids such as CBG, CBC, CBN, and trace THC.

How does CBD come from plants?

To produce distillate, three common methods for extracting CBD from hemp plants are used:

1. Super-cooled ethanol extraction

In supercooled ethanol extraction, hemp plant material is placed in a chamber and blasted with incredibly cold (approximately -40°F) ethanol. The plant materials are shocked by the super-cold ethanol blast, causing the oils and chlorophyll matter to be pushed out into a slurry.

This slurry is then passed thru the vaporization chambers, where the ethanol is completely evaporated away, leaving a clean, high-yielding hemp plant extract. This hemp plant slurry contains cannabinoid oils, resins, terpenes, and cannabinoids.

The slurry is then refined further via a short-path distillation process, yielding an amber/honey-colored hemp Distillate Full Spectrum that is ready for use. This method is used by Bona Voluntate.

2. CO2 Extraction or Supercritical CO2

CO2 extraction, also known as supercritical CO2 extraction, is the process of injecting highly pressurized carbon dioxide into a chamber containing ground hemp plant materials. As the pressure inside the chamber rises, the CO2 becomes supercritical, exhibiting liquefied characteristics. This results in a slurry of cannabinoid oils, resins, unevaporated terpenes, and chlorophyll material from the hemp plant.

This entire hemp plant slurry can then be refined into CBD distillate using short path Distillate Full Spectrum. The CO2 is then heated to return to its gaseous state. CO2 is removed from the hemp slurry during this process. This method is used by Bona Voluntate ®.

3. Butane extraction (BHO)

Butane hash oil (BHO) extraction is used to create solid concentrates such as glass, snaps, shatter, and crumble. In this method, whole hemp material is pressed into a glass cylinder with a fine mesh held over a second glass chamber. Following the packing of the mesh, a butane torch is attached to the opposite end of the mesh and butane is fired into the cylinder. The plant material will produce a viscous Distillate Full Spectrum by releasing cannabinoid oils, resins, and terpenes into the second glass chamber.

What role does Full Spectrum Distillate play in CBD products?

Full Spectrum CBD wholesale is typically composed of 65-75 percent cannabidiol (CBD). Some manufacturers sell Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD as is, while others add terpenes (natural flavors of the plant) back in. This is a very viscous substance that will crystallize and solidify when it cools and settles in the same way that fat does, so it must be kept warm or another substance added to keep it from crystallizing.

What are the most common CBD products that use Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD?

Bona Voluntate only uses the purest CBD concentrates and Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD in our products. Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD from industrial hemp is used in our CBD tinctures and Concentrate CBD E-Liquid.

What makes Full Spectrum Distillate different from Broad Spectrum Distillate and Isolate?

Broad-Spectrum CBD is comparable to Wholesale Full Spectrum CBD in that all naturally occurring THC has been completely mitigated while the other cannabinoids have not (CBD, CBG, CBC, and CBN). An isolate is the second, more refined state after a distillate. In this form, CBD is separated from the other compounds. After extraction, it appears as a powder.
