Distillate is a cannabis extract in which the final product has been systematically stripped of all materials and compounds except one specific cannabinoid. Distillate is the base ingredient of most edibles and vape cartridges, and typically lacks any flavor, taste, or aroma. It’s a potent cannabis oil that can be used on its own or infused in other cannabis products or goods. The most common forms of distillate on the market are THC oil and cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The name of the oil indicates the most prominent cannabinoid. In the case of CBD oil, CBD would be the most prominent cannabinoid. The name distillate refers to the cannabis purification process that removes and separates the cannabinoids, such as THC or CBD, into unique products. Distillate is extremely potent, though it lacks the terpenes, or naturally occurring flavors and aromas, of the cannabis plant. One benefit of having the natural terpenes removed is being able to have complete control over the final product’s taste and smell.
Concentrates like distillates are considered to be “solvent-free.” The extracted cannabinoids (THC) are re-infused into the concentrates to create a completely pure product. This is a sublingual (to be used under the tongue) method of taking cannabis – it is not a needle. The syringe is used, so that patients can gauge the correct dose of THC oil required in their treatment plan. You can also add it to your joint, use it as a topical or add it to food or drink. Another popular thing distillate is widely used for is making edibles and vape oils. No flavour added.
