What is washed CBD?
In order to stay within the legal THC content, most of the CBD on the market is post-processed. In this process, the THC content is reduced through various procedures. This process is called washing. Unfortunately, terpenes and other ingredients are lost at the same time. CBDIA only sells unwashed CBD flowers, which have been bred in such a way that they naturally have a legal THC content and therefore do not need to be post-treated. This is also reflected in the taste.
How do I recognize washed CBD?
Washed CBD is not easy to recognize. It can only be identified with closer analysis. First, it helps to look at the trichomes, which are not pronounced in washed CBD. Color-wise, the trichomes in unwashed CBD can vary from a mild white to a strong orange - this is easily seen in Orange X, for example. Biologically, the ratio of CBD to THC can only be about 1:35 - with the exception of a few. If the CBD content is higher than 8%, you can usually assume that it is washed CBD. Also, washed CBD is much paler and less pronounced in color.
Is washed CBD dangerous?
Washed CBD can definitely be dangerous. One way to wash CBD flowers is to use binders. These can be inedible and qualitative alcohol, Co2, butane or pentane. After washing, the flowers not only lack many important terpenes and cannabinoids like CBD and CBG, but the binders used to wash CBD can also leave toxic traces. Please keep your hands off washed CBD. With us you are on the safe side.
Why is washed CBD sold at all?
The CBD market is becoming more and more of a buyer's market - it seems as it has been flooded with merchandise. One reason for this is the Swiss market. There was a gold rush atmosphere in the Swiss industry - quite a few wanted to get into the CBD business purely for commercial reasons. For this reason, an unbelievable amount of products was produced without it selling even rudimentarily well. In Switzerland, however, CBD is legal with up to 1% THC, which is why the CBD produced in Switzerland is useless for the European market. You can probably guess it by now: In order to make the product accessible for the European market, it is washed to get to the legal European THC percentage of less than 0.2%. The fact that this creates health risks for the buyers is a minor matter for many companies - the main thing is that they get their overproduced CBD kilos sold. We have also been offered such goods many times - we have always declined with thanks, because we feel responsible for our customers, sell CBD out of love for the plant and say NO to commercialism in the industry!
