Fourth, if producers started to use CBD crystals in their products, many would be tempted to use CBD crystals from China and other areas, where there is absolutely no quality control and where pesticides are known to be used in hemp production.
It is a very costly process and has required substantial investments on our side, but it is worth all the resources invested, because we would likely be the only CBD producer with this technology and with a product offering of full spectrum CBD products with less than 0.0% THC.
If you haven’t read this article about it, then we recommend doing so.
How are CBD products without THC made?
One is to use CBD crystals instead of full spectrum CBD oil in the products. We don’t like this method for several reasons.
Our mission is to develop quality and premium products that make it easier for our customers to live a healthier lifestyle.
We expect to launch the THC-free products before the summer is over and will keep you informed about the developments.
From a product perspective, there are two major ways to solve this.
Once all the phytocannabinoids are extracted, they are distilled. This will take all the solid plant matter out of the equation. However, still in the equation? THC. At Joy Organics, we want you to experience all the benefits that each of the phytocannabinoids in hemp plants has to offer. We want to make sure you enjoy it worry-free without the THC.
The most common way to extract CBD is through CO2 extraction. There are three ways to achieve this:
Benefits of CBD Without THC
Both hemp and marijuana are derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. Marijuana contains low levels of CBD and high levels of THC. This ratio of phytocannabinoids is what causes marijuana’s high. Hemp has a higher CBD to THC ratio, which is why CBD oil doesn’t cause intoxicating effects.
When the batch passes for purity, it receives a Certificate of Quality Assurance. That way each customer knows more than one pair of eyes inspected the product. This is the type of transparency that sets Joy Organics apart from other CBD products.
Once the extraction process is over, you’ll be stuck with a bunch of plant material that you don’t want. You need to separate it from all the good stuff. Cannabinoids and terpenes will go down one path while supercritical carbon dioxide goes into a condenser. Here, it is turned back into a liquid and put into a storage tank for future use.
A CBD Oil which is THC free is exactly what it says on the tin. Or is it? Technically, it is extremely difficult (pretty much impossible to be honest) to irradicate all traces of THC from a hemp-based product. So most of the time, even a 0% THC oil does contain either THCa or THCv which are not psychoactive. The only way that you can completely eradicate THC is by having an isolated CBD formula, which is not acceptable for human consumption according to the FSA (& the Cannabis Trades Association).
As time has passed, and more research has been completed we see that THC has been largely misunderstood and actually does have a wide range of benefits for your well-being (so long as it is taken with caution of course). For instance, our full-spectrum products contain a very small amount of THC (less than 0.2% which is the legal amount)- and those who try them can really feel the difference. This is partly down to what is called the ‘entourage effect‘. There is a big argument for including THC in a CBD oil formula!
What is a THC Free CBD oil?
While you would be very unlucky to test positive while using a full-spectrum CBD oil, there have been instances where THC has been detected while being tested. It is very, very rare (and often it is found that the product contained more THC than was advertised) but for obvious reason, a negative on a spot-test cannot be guaranteed. There are too many variables to consider. 0% THC CBD oils contain such a low level of the raw THC compounds that it is bearly traceable in the bottle and will not be detected in a drug test. So they just give you that little bit more confidence that you can get your daily dose of CBD, without getting yourself accidentally into trouble.
What makes a CBD oil THC Free, is a THC level of less than 0.0%. Most of the THC free CBD oils on the market do contain the previously mentioned raw THC molecules (THCa & THCv) but they usually only account for about 0.02% of the formula, which is bearly even detectable in the bottle (nevermind once it has passed through your body). It makes these products ideal for those who are regularly tested for controlled substances.
That is why a THC free option is a good thing to have- but what actually are 0% THC CBD oils and what are the benefits?
