Separating out cannabinoids from one another is practical only with industrial strength techniques, such as centrifugal partition chromatography. It can’t be done in the kitchen, unfortunately. So your best bet would be to try another strain if you do not like the psychoactivity. Cannatonic ( ACDC ) is one strain that can have an 18:1 CBD / THC profile. Users generally find that they can also develop a tolerance to psychoactivity over time.
“I’m wondering the best way to use CBD from flowers. Smoking a high CBD strain (Charlottes Web) still got me stoned despite having very minimal THC . I am thinking about buying a Volcano Digital Vaporizer, but I want to make sure I can effectively get CBD . So, can I vaporize the THC out of cannabis flowers? Can I vaporize at 157°C and let the THC escape and then vaporize between 160°C-180°C to get just the CBD only? Or is that an impossibility and you have to have both THC and CBD together? Much appreciated, thanks for your time!”
CBD doesn’t have a clear set boiling point.
I hope this is helpful. Let me know if you have further questions.
Thank you for contacting Project CBD . Check out the boiling point chart of various cannabinoids and terpenes attached below. THC boils at a slightly lower temperature than CBD . However, when vaporizing a strain that contains any THC at all, you still may absorb some effects. Here is why:
Using the right type of olive oil is crucial. There are three recognized grades; refined, virgin and extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the least processed and refined, which matches our CBD oil tinctures perfectly. It’s extracted using natural methods and then assessed for purity and sensory qualities. Extra virgin olive oil provides a distinct taste and is high in phenolic antioxidants which is why its recognised as the premium choice when considering health and taste.
This is a high CBD hemp concentrate that has gone through a distillation process to remove THC. To do this, you must heat the CBD concentrate to its boiling point (165 degrees Celsius). The heated CBD steam travels upwards and the vapor is captured into a tube that condenses them into water and oil.
Our body has an internal system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). Naturally, we produce cannabinoids that help support this system. The ECS contains a network of receptors that are spread throughout the body. Some of these receptors serve to regulate physiological processes such as sleep and memory; whereas the other receptors regulate immune responses such as inflammatory reactions and pain perception. CBD works by supplementing the ECS, meaning it helps your internal system work better.
This means that our range of full spectrum oils should not disqualify athletes following urine, blood or hair follicle tests. However, if you test positive for these metabolites on a urine, blood, or hair-follicle test, you’ll typically have to undergo a secondary Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) test. This should clarify the amount of specific THC metabolites in your body to your regulatory board and so long as recreational cannabis hasn’t been introduced, our amounts of THC should comply.
The main difference between Hemp and Marijuana is the amount of THC, the psychoactive ingredient, that is produced. Hemp contains hardly any THC and is what is used to make CBD oil.
The process of distillation in our opinion is a poor one in extracting pure CBD. The boiling point of CBD (165oC) is sandwiched between the boiling point of two structural isomers of THC (155 and 175 oC). Therefore, you are likely to have THC remaining after this process as well as other “stuff” of an undetermined and unwanted nature. The purity of CBD from products on the market that are distillates is between 80-95% pure. Even at the higher end of this purity, what does that 5% consist of? We choose isolates because it is 100% pure without using any harmful chemical or extreme temperatures.
Remember to consult with your doctor if you’re looking to try CBD oil alongside other medications, as this may cause side effects.
