How is CBD Oil made?

What exactly goes into the process of making CBD oil – how does it get extracted from the plant? What's actually involved? Why should you care? The answer is probably different than you think!

First thing's first: CBD is not illegally produced cannabis oil.  Most CBD extracts come from the hemp plant, and most hemp plants contain negligible amounts of THC (the compound in marijuana that causes a high). If your extract contains more than 0.3% THC, then it would be considered federally illegal just like any other type of cannabis/marijuana/weed/hemp product.

The reason to mention this is because there are companies out there misleading people who might otherwise purchase their products – that's why it's important to understand what actually goes into CBD oils so you aren't fooled by trivial things like clever marketing. The main thing to look for when buying CBD oil is that it has been third-party lab tested, so you know exactly what else is in there besides cannabidiol, in addition to being free of pesticides, solvents and heavy metals. It's also important to understand the extraction process .

Many companies use harsh chemicals like propane or butane (for example) to extract CBD oil from the hemp plant. The problem with this is that these arbitrary chemicals are extremely flammable! If one tiny thing goes wrong during the extraction process, then your entire product could be destroyed almost instantly.

All Aviator Farms products are extracted using Cryogenic Ethanol extraction & also a molecular distillation for refinement.

While no extraction method is perfect, ethanol is one of the best and safest for drawing out the subtle flavors, aromas, and synergistic compounds that are found in the cannabis plant. Ethanol is also one of the safest solvents for food grade and pharmaceutical extraction process.  These compounds work with one another to amplify the beneficial compounds of hemp extracts. For this reason, ethanol extractions may be among the best for those who use hemp oil for health and wellness purposes.

Even ethanol is not without its criticisms, however, Yet, what some consider a downfall to ethanol extraction is also the solvent’s primary benefit. Since ethanol is polar, it acts as a generalized solvent rather than a selective one. As a generalized solvent, ethanol is capable of extracting more phytochemicals than other solvents. This means that an ethanol-based extraction will have a greater nutrient-density when compared with other extractions.
