CBD Extracts

CBD Extracts are one of the most innovative, effective ways to enjoy its benefits. Each container is full of pure, natural hemp extract that can be consumed directly or added to many foods and drinks. Perfect for experimentation, the possibilities are endless!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are CBD extracts?

    CBD extracts are highly concentrated forms of CBD that are derived from the hemp plant. They sometimes come in the form of ‘paste,’ which can be dispensed from a small syringe or tube. They’ve become popular in recent years since they deliver highly potent effects.
  • How are CBD extracts made?

    After hemp plants are harvested, their CBD can be extracted in a number of ways (by using super-cooled CO2, ethanol, or other solvents). The end result can be processed in a number of ways, but CBD extracts tend to undergo minimal processing so they retain all of the natural compounds of the plant.
  • How can I use CBD extracts?

    You can use CBD extracts in a number of ways. Some people prefer to consume it ‘straight’ by squeezing a small amount beneath their tongue, and allowing it to sit for a few moments. Those who don’t like the taste of CBD extracts—which can be a bit potent—often add it to food or beverages to make it more palatable.
  • What do CBD extracts taste like?

    Because CBD extracts undergo minimal processing, they retain all the natural flavours of the hemp plant—and as a result, their taste can often be more intense than that of CBD oil tinctures or other products. The base taste of hemp is often described with terms like ‘earthy,’ but the taste of different varieties of hemp can vary widely depending on their terpene content. Hemp terpenes can impart flavours like lemon, lavender, pepper, and more. Some CBD extracts are also made with additional flavourings such as orange, mint, or berry.
  • Are CBD extracts stronger than CBD oil?

    CBD extracts are often more concentrated than the average CBD oil tincture (though there are a few exceptions to this rule). This means CBD extracts tend to contain a greater amount of CBD per dose, along with many other hemp compounds that scientists believe could heighten the effects of CBD itself. CBD extracts often have superior bioavailability as well, which means they’re easier for your body to absorb and process. Therefore, in most cases it’s reasonable to say that the average CBD extract is stronger than the average CBD oil tincture.
  • Are CBD extracts safe?

    Most experts and medical organisations agree that CBD has a remarkably good safety profile, as illustrated in a 2017 report from the World Health Organisation (WHO). Some studies have indicated that extremely high doses of CBD could interfere with liver enzymes and some bodily functions, but those doses are far higher than those available in CBD extracts. As with any supplement, however, it’s possible that taking CBD extracts could have unexpected interactions with certain medications, so it’s a good idea to speak with a medical professional before using them.
  • Will CBD extracts get me high, then?

    Despite the fact that CBD extracts offer a highly concentrated dose of CBD, they will not get you high—no matter how much you use. Like any other CBD product, all the CBD extracts offered by The Hemp Company contain no more than the legal limit of 0.2 percent THC. THC and CBD are entirely different compounds, and only the former is capable of inducing any intoxicating effects. To put things in perspective, products that get you high tend to contain (at the very least) 10 percent THC, and some have as much as 20 or 30 percent THC.
  • Can CBD extracts show up on a drug test?

    In theory, using CBD extracts should not lead to a positive drug test. These tests are designed to detect relatively high levels of THC (more specifically, its metabolites) and not CBD. The trace amounts of THC found in CBD extracts are not enough to pass the threshold for a positive test result. However, some drug tests that rely on outdated technology have proven incapable of distinguishing between CBD and THC, which has led some people to receive false positive results. In light of this, you should use caution when using CBD extracts or other products if you’re concerned about drug testing.
