Understanding Cannabinoid Oil Distillation Vs. Isolate Processing

Whether it is THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, or any of the over 200 (and growing) identified cannabinoids, there are specific processes for extracting these cannabinoids. Two major ways that these cannabinoids can be extracted are distillation and isolation.

Boiling and Condensation

Distillation is a process for separating different liquid substances through selective boiling and condensation (think distilling rum). In this case using boiling and condensation, a specific cannabinoid can be extracted.

Isolation is a highly technical process that uses specialized pharmaceutical manufacturing and testing equipment as well as buildings or rooms which can safely handle toxic and explosive compounds.

Here are the chemicals that are typically used in making a cannabinoid isolate: acetone, acetonitrile, benzene, chloroform, ether, ethyl acetate, dichloromethane, hexane, methanol, pentane, and petroleum. We at Chill-Brands do not use this process to make our powder.

Simply put, distillation uses boiling and condensation to extract liquids or oils. The isolation process uses dangerous chemicals to extract a specific compound. Our choice in this is to go as natural as possible. That's why the oil we use to make our powder is always distilled. In fact, we only use Broad Spectrum Cannabinoid oils in our powders. No matter which cannabinoid oil powder you buy from us, know that you are getting the highest quality cannabinoid powder for you and your loved ones.
