What Is CBD?
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid that is present in the hemp plant. Although marijuana is in the cannabis family it is not the same as hemp. To grow hemp legally in the United States it has to possess less than a .03% THC content. In short, CBD is the cousin of THC. It is present in cannabis plants and is believed to have a plethora of wellness benefits.
What Are CBD Extracts?
A CBD extract is simply a CBD product that has been extracted from the hemp plant. There are several methods that can be used in the extraction process. Some of these are solvent-based CBD extractions where a solvent such as ethanol or butane is used to extract the CBD. There is also extraction by way of olive oil. Some of the more complex methods use C02 that becomes liquified and pulls the CBD from the hemp plant. In any event, the end product of CBD that comes out of the extraction is known as a CBD extract.

What Are CBD Tinctures?
A CBD tincture is a solution that is derived from extracting CBD from the hemp plant by the use of distilled alcohol. In most cases, after the hemp has been heated and ground into a powder it is then soaked in high-proof alcohol such as White Lightening or Moonshine. After this process is finished, and all of the CBD has been pulled out of the hemp plant the filtering process starts and removes the leftover solid hemp particles. When this is done you have a perfectly created CBD tincture. If the manufacturer used high-quality hemp to extract the CBD from it will be a high-quality CBD tincture.
