How CBD oil drops are made
The process of creating CBD oil drops starts with CBD extract, also known as CBD paste. This is crude hemp extract. This product is more or less solid depending on the temperature. Pure CBD melts at 66 degrees Celsius, but CBD paste contains a lot of waxes and fats. This mean that the product melts at a lower temperature, at which the liquid oil dilutes the CBD that is present. Because the precise composition of the extract depends on many variables (specific strain used, growing conditions, method of extraction and filtration) the melting temperature varies. Most CBD paste becomes liquid somewhere between 17 and 30 degrees celsius.
CBD Oil Drops Filtration & Decarboxylation
There are different ways of filtering the extract, with different results. The most significant difference is the temperature at which the filtration takes place. A supercooled (cryogenic) filtration is very effective for removing fats and waxes.
Decarboxylation means the extract is slightly heated. This causes the molecular structure of CBDa (Cannabidiolic acid) to change, becoming CBD. On the plant, CBD is present in it’s acidic variant called CBDa. This molecule has a number of interesting properties that are becoming more popular. However, (decarboxylated) CBD itself is better understood as most available research is focussed on CBD, and not CBDa.
Diluting CBD Oil paste with a carrier oil.
CBD oil drops are made by taking extract or paste, and diluting it with another liquid (called ‘carrier’). The liquid form makes dosage, application and absorption easier. A dropper bottle is used to apply a certain number of drops under the tongue, to be absorbed sublingually. This means CBD is diffused into the blood through tissues under the tongue. The carrier has to be made up of fat or alcohol in order to
successfully dissolve the CBD and absorb it into the body. Water based liquids don’t work, because CBD is lipofilic And hydrofobic. This means it dissolves in fat, but not in water. (If you have seen ‘Water soluble’ CBD, this is not technically a solution, but an emulsion. That means that tiny droplets of CBD extract are suspended in the liquid.)
The most common carrier oils for CBD drops
The carrier we use to make cbd bulk oil today is organic Hemp seed oil.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil consists of about 80% essential fatty acids, mostly omega 3 and 6.
