Beyond the Dropper: Decoding CBD Oil’s Color Code

Mar 28, 2024 | Canna-Guide

The golden elixir promising homeostasis and overall wellness – CBD oil has taken the wellness world by storm. But when it comes to choosing the right one, confusion often arises. One frequently asked question: what color should high-quality CBD oil be?

Contrary to popular belief, there’s no single “perfect” shade, but we sure can get close! CBD oil’s color spectrum ranges from clear to golden, to brown (ick,) green (hmm,) and even almost black (absolutely not.) This kaleidoscope of hues is influenced by several factors, revealing clues about the product’s composition and quality.

1. The Power of the Plant:

  • CBD Isolate: Almost clear, this extract contains pure CBD, stripped of other plant compounds. Ideal for those seeking a pure single compound of CBD, typically only CBD-A, without THC traces.
  • Full-Spectrum CBD: Darker hues like gold, brown, or green indicate the presence of additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant materials. This “entourage effect” may enhance potential benefits.
  • Raw CBD: A can span from dark golden honey to dark green shade suggests minimal processing, potentially retaining more natural plant compounds.

At Verde Collection we have a saying, “stay raw, stay gold, babe,” for a reason. 😉

2. Extraction Magic:

  • CO2 Extraction: Often leads to lighter, golden oils, preserving delicate terpenes and offering a smoother taste.
  • Solvent-Based Extraction: May result in darker shades, depending on the solvent used and residual traces. Opt for reputable brands using food-grade solvents.

3. The Carrier’s Canvas:

  • MCT Oil: Clear and tasteless, offering high bioavailability.
  • Hemp Seed Oil: Greenish tint, earthy flavor, rich in nutrients.
  • Olive Oil: Golden yellow, stronger flavor, lower bioavailability.

Remember: Color alone isn’t the ultimate quality indicator. Look for third-party lab reports, organic certification, and a reputable brand with transparent practices.

Decoding the color code can empower you to choose the right CBD oil for your needs. Go beyond the dropper and discover a world of well-being, naturally.
