In recent weeks THC-A crystalline has been all the rage, and for good reason; it is one of the purest forms of THC available at 99.99% THC. This is achieved using no chemical additives. Now, cannabidiol’s (CBD) equivalent has hit the market, and it has the potential to be a game-changer.
For those unaware, CBD is a compound found in cannabis that doesn’t have a psychoactive effect such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabis products and even strains that are low in THC and high in CBD have gained popularity in recent years; they’re perfect for children and for those who simply don’t want the “high” typically associated with cannabis.
CBD crystalline is the natural evolution of this. With a purity of 99%, it’s the purest form of CBD currently available.
“When reduced to its purest form, CBD, just like THC, is isolated to a natural crystal structure”, says Allie Beckett of Marijuana.com, who provided the images in this article. “[T]he CBD compound is isolated from extracted oil rather than straight from the flower itself.”
Beckett continues; “CBD Crystalline is so pure that there is primarily one molecule present, CBD. This is what causes the unique crystalline appearance rather than the honey or shatter consistency that is typically found on shelves at your local dispensary.”
CBD crystalline is currently only available in select locations. As with THC-A crystalline, however, it will spread fast.
