CBD oil is currently a huge hit among consumers, but how any people know that there are several different methods in which the oil is extracted from the plant itself. There are various techniques for extracting CBD from the whole hemp plant, and the chemistry and science involved is rather interesting.
The ‘original’ method for CBD extraction is credited to a Canadian man named Rick Simpson, who pioneered the technique for making a different type of THC/CBD mixture oil of high potency. The ‘Rick Simpson Oil’ (RSO) technique involves soaking the hemp product in alcohol, which lets the cannabinoids and other compounds seep out. Then, once the solvent is evaporated off, you are left with the oily, finished product.
