Methods of CBD extraction
During water filtration, the raw material is passed through a special filter system with high water pressure, which separates the required active ingredients from the rest of the plant. The CBD gathered in this way is then dried before it can be processed further.
In the alternative method of dry sieving, the CBD extract is separated from the rest of the product using fine sieves. However, the end of this process isn’t classified as true CBD hash, as it is much less concentrated and contains large amounts of other residues of the hemp plant.
The third official method of obtaining CBD extract is by extracting the CBD with alcohol. The process achieves very good results – just like the CO2 extraction technique used by Tom Hemp’s.
However, dissolving it out with alcohol is less economical, which is why we produce our Tom Hemp’s extracts using CO2 extraction. Connoisseurs and lovers usually opt for full-spectrum CBD extracts. This special way of extracting cannabidiol is gentle on the environment and leads to a very pure end product.
Tom Hemp’s CBD extracts
During the CO2 extraction process, the active ingredient is released from the plant material using carbon dioxide. At Tom Hemp’s, we use the CBD extract gained this way to produce our Stardust Isolate, which has a purity of 99.8%.
The isolate is made from organically grown hemp and serves as the basis for cosmetic products. The Stardust Isolate is THC-free and you can buy it in quantities between 1 and 50 grams directly from us in our online shop or in one of our Tom Hemp’s Berlin CBD shops.
Another way to purchase CBD extract is by choosing our Berlin Kush Crumble with 87% CBD, which is also a full spectrum extract from organically grown industrial hemp. The gentle CO2 extraction process preserves all cannabinoids and terpenes (more information on terpenes). As the name of the crumble suggests, this product has a purity of 87%.
If you prefer a milder, but by no means less aromatic pollinate, our Amalfi Lemon Pollinate is the perfection option for you. It’s a CBD-rich extract made from organically farmed and EU-certified industrial hemp. This natural product is free of pesticides.
With a proportion of 87% CBD, it is dosed much lower, but the fresh breeze of the lemons on the Amalfi Coast will still convince you of this CBD extract. If you prefer to use a paste for your CBD extract use, we’ve got just what you’re looking for.
Our Tom Hemp’s Paste has a CBD content of 35% and, once opened, it should be kept cool and consumed within a month. You can find all our other products such as CBD pollen in our online shop – where you can buy CBD extract, safely and legally.
