CBD Terminology


The term bioavailability generally refers to the effectiveness of a specific ingestion method. Specifically, this is measured as how quickly and what percentage of a product which is absorbed into the bloodstream for use by the body. 

Full Spectrum

Full spectrum or “whole plant” products contain everything the cannabis plan contains. That means they contain CBD as well as flavonoids, the natural fatty acids found in hemp, terpenes and other cannabinoids including trace amounts of THC.

All these naturally-occurring elements have their own important therapeutic value. Full spectrum products are by far the most popular. One reason for the popularity of full spectrum CBD is something called the “entourage effect”.

Entourage Effect
This effect is the increased benefits provided by ingesting the various cannabinoids and terpenoids found in the whole cannabis plant together. This is opposed to ingesting a single compound alone.

Broad Spectrum

To create Broad Spectrum CBD, manufacturers will put their products through additional processing to isolate and remove as much trace amounts of THC possible while preserving the other natural cannabinoids and
terpenes. Broad Spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have any traces of THC in their system, whether for medical, personal or legal reasons.

CBD Isolate

CBD Isolate is typically the CBD product of choice for those who are sensitive to other cannabinoids such as THC. Isolates are just that – CBD isolated from all other cannabinoids. During the CBD isolate extraction process, everything contained in the plant matter is removes, including any traces of THC, terpenes, waxes, oils.  

  What’s we are left with is 99+% pure CBD.

Hemp Seed Oil
This is an oil extracted from the seeds of a hemp plant using a cold expeller-pressed method. This oil is not the same as an extract. It does not contain cannabinoids and instead is a highly nutritious food source packed with Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, amino acids, fibre and more.


The aromatic organic hydrocarbons often found in the essential oils of plants, the aroma is synonymous with the term Cannabis.  They are known to produce a wide variety of potential benefits alongside cannabinoids via the entourage effect.

Supercritical CO2 Extraction

The Supercritical CO2 process of extraction is the most efficient and clean way of obtaining the extracts from the plant “natural properties”. CO2 extraction allows us to create a pure, clean, premium oil that is safe to produce with a lot less-processing once it has been extracted.
Other processes that use highly toxic solvents may require many hours to purge the solvent trapped in the oil. Across multiple industries the CO2 process has proven that the highest efficiencies in commercial processing utilize CO2.

Using CO2 offers the ability to calibrate the extraction process, especially with a system that will separate constituents during an extraction. The process allows us to target specific compounds, for instance terpenes (terpenoids) and THC/CBD (cannabinoids.
