In hemp, CBD comes from the flowers, leaves, and seeds, which are separated from the stalks at harvest. The CBD can be extracted in a number of ways, including the use of alcohol, ethanol, or CO2. Whatever method is used, the CBD must be also heated to activate it, a process known as decarboxylation.
In our whisl CBD vapes, we use purified CBD isolate, which is created by repeatedly refining the hemp extract. The result is CBD vapes that guarantee very precise amounts of CBD, highly consistent results, and no THC content. Other CBD extraction processes may result in what are called broad-spectrum CBD, which contains a much higher number of active ingredients, or full-spectrum CBD, which contains THC.
That explains the source of hemp-derived CBD and how we obtain it, but why does it interact with our bodies?
