I will tell you the best places from where you can purchase CBD products in Canada but before disclosing it, let’s have look at some facts about CBD that from where it come from and some other information which helps you educate and give you confidence while purchasing it from anywhere.
Where does CBD come from?
Cannabis plants come in a variety of strains. Each strain produces a particular balance of cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can account for as much as 25% or more of the content of the flowers.
The amount of cannabinoids a plant can produce is limited, so as one cannabinoid is bred into a strain, the others are bred out. So, there are strains that are high in THC and low in CBD, and others that are high in CBD and low in THC, and some plants have more of a balance of the two.
Agricultural hemp, a family of cannabis strains used for fiber and food must, by law, contain less than 0.3% THC in order to be legally grown.
Some strains of hemp are bred to be high in CBD and extremely low in THC. The essential oil extracts of cannabis flowers contain cannabinoids in the same ratio as the plant from which it is extracted, therefore, hemp extracts contain negligible amounts of THC.
Hemp is also far cheaper to grow and process than marijuana, so quite often the CBD in CBD-infused products is extracted from hemp rather than marijuana and refined into CBD-rich essential oils and pure CBD. In order for a patient to be sure that their medicine is 100% THC-free, only hemp-derived products should be used.
How is CBD made?
In order to extract CBD from the hemp plant, the flowers and leaves are ground up and soaked in a solvent of some kind (ethanol, supercritical CO2, etc.) which separates the essential oils from the plant matter. The resulting product is correctly referred to as hemp extract. This extract will contain cannabinoids and other oily compounds found in the plant such as terpenes in the same ratio as the plant. So, hemp extract generally contains less than 10% CBD.
The next step in producing CBD is to concentrate the extract using a distillation process. This removes some of the unwanted contents and produces CBD concentrate (shown in featured photo). The resulting ratio of CBD and other compounds depends on the process and how many steps of distillation it has gone through.
CBD concentrate can also be further refined to produce CBD isolate, which can be as high as 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate takes on a salt-like crystal form at room temperature.
CBD concentrates and CBD isolates can be consumed by themselves, or they can be added to vegetable oils such as hemp seed oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and so on, as well as non-plant-based oils such as emu oil. These preparations can be used both internally and topically.
CBD concentrates and isolates can also be used for vaping and dabbing.
Where can I Buy Wholesale CBD Products in Canada
The two main places people purchase CBD Vape Oil in Canada are online or in a regular store, and a lot of the time where you purchase depends on individual scenarios and your level of knowledge of CBD Oils.
Because hemp-sourced CBD contains no THC and is not sourced from marijuana, the use of these CBD-infused products does not require a medical marijuana card. On the same token, CBD patients without a card are not allowed to shop at medical marijuana dispensaries, but you can still purchase online from CBD wholesale Canada at a very affordable price.
The reason we believe buying online is the favored method is due to the fact that you have access to a higher variety of vaping oils and likewise, the cost is generally often times less than purchasing from a local store.
