• CBD is extracted from using solvents which can include hexane, butane, CO2, or ethanol.
  • CO2 and ethanol extractions are the best methods to extract CBD isolate, as they leave practically zero traces of chemical contaminants in the end product. (And really—do you want to ingest hexane or butane??).
  • The result of both CO2 and ethanol processes is a white to slight off-white crystal powder that is soluble in oils (coconut or olive, for example) or can be dissolved in ethanol (such as Everclear). The slight differences in color depend on the percentage of terpenes(beneficial phytochemicals naturally occurring in the plant) that have been left.
  • Because Cloud Forest Botanicals’ CBD is whole plant extract, it contains many beneficial terpenes — such as myrcene, pinene, limonene and linaool.
