Unlocking the full potential of CBD

Cannabis has been used recreationally for countless years, due in large part to the psychoactive effects of THC. As the cannabis industry grows, however, more people are interested in unlocking the medicinal uses of CBD, and the flavors of the terpenes and phytocannabinoids locked in the plant.

The key to all of the benefits, flavors, and complexities of the various cannabis-derived chemicals is heat. By utilizing heat and approaching the CBD boiling point, you change the acidic phytocannabinoids into non-acidic compounds. This unlocks both the therapeutic benefits of CBB, as well as the flavor compounds of the various terpenes found in hemp.

In fact, the substances we know as CBD and THC aren’t even naturally occurring in the plant until it’s heated. Let’s take a closer look at this process.

Changing phytocannabinoids into cannabinoids

Reaping the benefit of CBD requires heat to be applied, but only up to a certain point. Though phytocannabinoids have their own medicinal uses, heat needs to be applied to extract the effects of CBD. Too much heat, however, will boil the compounds and render them effectively useless.

This is why the boiling point for terpenes and CBD is so important regardless of the application for which you are using them. For instance, CBD isolate is considered to be the safest form of CBD to take, preferable for the elderly or children, because it has no trace of THC at all.

One popular way of taking CBD is in food products, but too much heat will destroy the vital benefits. This is why knowing that the boiling point of CBD is around 350 degrees is vital to working with it. You can make a wide variety of CBD goods, from gummies to muffins so long as you adhere strictly to the temperature limit of 350 degrees.

Terpenes are the various compounds in the hemp plant that produce complex flavors. Their boiling points vary widely and by using them to your advantage, you can create new tastes and aromas in your applications.

Use the CBD boiling point to your advantage

By understanding that heat is required to make CBD useful, you can be sure to minimize the risk that you’ll destroy your CBD products’ potency. Likewise, learning the various boiling points of terpenes will help you unlock new tastes and experiences. Finally, remember that the various phytocannabinoids have their own beneficial properties when unheated.
