The science behind the CBD. Hemp extraction process.
Posted on March 01 2019
Further to this, our farm exclusively owns the genetics to an important bearing hemp crop. This means that it does not need to go through any of those harsh extraction processes which substantially damage the wholeness and purity of the CBD.
This is not just a bi-product of industrial hemp cultivation, this is an art form, and we’ll show you why by taking you through the science behind the CBD Vape Shot.
HOW THE CBD VAPE SHOT IS MADE
Our CBD is hemp is purely derived from crystalline cannabinol, which is separated through CO2 Extraction and Crystal precipitation. After many years of collective experience, we use the most trialled procedure of high-quality CBD extraction. CBD Vape Shot supervises the entire process to ensure that all steps are fully compliant under FDA laws. We achieve this by providing that the CBD content in our Vape Shot is double-checked through HPLC and Convergence Chromatography. Our shot is an incomparably pure 2ml concentration of Cannabidiol and PG, which makes it perfect as a bioavailable additive to any of your favourite vape flavours. Here at CBD Vape Shot, we genuinely believe we’ve mastered the art of producing the purest manifestation of CBD isolate for accurate dosing.

WHAT IS CRYSTALLINE CANNABINOL?
Cannabidiol Crystalline or CBD crystals are the purest forms of CBD Concentrate. These crystals derive from strains of cannabis specifically grown to create cannabidiol.
WHAT IS CO2 EXTRACTION AND CRYSTAL PRECIPITATION?
CO2 extraction has been commonly used to make food for years and is an innovative way of extracting CBD oil. CO2 extraction, together with crystal precipitation is most certainly the most environmentally friendly way of removing the oil. It is a lot safer, cleaner, and cheaper than using fossil fuel-based extraction.
VAPING CBD VS INGESTING CBD
There are numerous ways to dose cannabidiol, from vaping and ingestion to taking it sublingually. When an individual vapes, they feel the effects instantly – usually within 2 minutes. These effects often last up to 6 hours or more.
During the vaporisation process, the CBD enters your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream rather than passing through the digestive system, having an immediate impact on your body and mind. This allows the CBD to enter your circulation at a faster absorption rate, for maximum bioavailability. Although longer lasting, ingesting CBD takes longer and is less effective. Ingesting CBD only supplies your bloodstream with around 15% of the chemical which, in turn, wastes a full 85% of it to absolutely no effect. Known as the “first-pass effect”, this occurs because our livers break down 85% of the CBD while ingesting the substance.
Sublingual ingestion, which allows for the ingredients of CBD oil to be directly absorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth (placing drops under the tongue) is also beneficial, but not as enjoyable and as exciting as vaping it.
THE SCIENCE BEHIND CBD OIL PROCESSThe effects that CBD oil creates on the body and mind are non-psychoactive, meaning they don’t create an intoxicating sensation. Cannabidiol is a natural cannabinoid that is extracted from the hemp plant. The process works by the CBD oil reacting with our body’s cannabinoid receptors. Such cannabinoid receptors make up our body’s endocannabinoid system, and this system is entirely responsible for keeping the body in a state of homeostasis. What this means is that it supports one of the essential receptor-based systems in our body by providing it with a wide variety of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. We recommend using the CBD Vape Shot as an additive to your favourite e-juice to experience its full effects.
