What is it made from?
Our CBD tincture bottles contain two main ingredients:
- CBD isolate – The pure CBD extract taken from the cannabis plant
- Carrier oil – The liquid that CBD is mixed with in order to make it easier to use
Some of our products will contain natural flavours.
CBD isolate is a fine white powder that is extracted from the cannabis plant using the purest and healthiest extraction methods available.
- Organically grown
- CO2 extracted
- Lab tested for purity
- Suitable for vegans
CO2 extraction is nontoxic and CO2 extraction processes do not contribute toward carbon emission increases in our atmosphere. CO2 extraction doesn’t bring any flammable petroleum-based solvents (like butane) into contact with the product. This removes the danger of explosions from the CO2 extraction process as well as potentially harmful petroleum-based butane particles from the final, very fine, concentrated cannabis product!
CBD isolate (powder) is an incredibly potent extract with powerful properties. To make it easier to use and reduce the concentration we mix this wonder molecule with a ‘carrier oil’.
As we’ve just mentioned, diluting CBD in a carrier oil makes it easier to measure the dosage and make sure that you get maximum benefit from the product.
At africanpure we use MCT oil:
- MCT oil – Generally regarded as the best carrier for CBD
- Extracted from coconuts
- Low viscosity (thin fluid, almost like water in consistency)
Our carrier oil is safe for you, pets and kids and can be used in most recipes if you’d like to cook with your CBD oil or can be taken just as is.
Mixing CBD and carrier oil
Compounds in cannabis are fat soluble. Which means they break down in fat rather than in water. This means that in order to reap the benefits of cannabinoids, we need to consume them with some fat, such as MCT oil.
The oil is gently warmed and CBD isolate added. The two are gently mixed until the CBD is completely dissolved.
Bottling takes place after the mixture has completely cooled.
