What is Distillate?
Distillate is a cannabis extract in which the final product has been systematically stripped of all materials and compounds except one specific cannabinoid: THC.
Distillate is the base ingredient of most edibles and vape cartridges. It’s a potent cannabis oil that can be used on its own or infused in other cannabis products or goods. The most common forms of distillate on the market are THC oil and cannabidiol (CBD) oil. The name of the oil indicates the most prominent cannabinoid. In the case of THC oil, THC would be the most prominent cannabinoid. The name distillate refers to the cannabis purification process that removes and separates the cannabinoids, such as THC or CBD, into unique products.
Cosmic Concentrates Premium Distillate is produced by taking pre-extracted concentrate oil and further separating to refine the cannabinoids, terpenoids, and flavonoids from the stuff we don’t want such as pesticides, plant matter, or other impurities.
When compared to the process by which we extract wax and shatter, it’s quite different. Distillate is made by a molecular distillation process, much like the process of distilling alcohol. The extracted material is heated to the point of vaporization, which causes decarboxylation (activation of THC), then the evaporated material is decondensed and collected.
This by far one of our favourite concentrates as this amazing golden honey like substance can be smoked in a vaporizer, squeezed into a joint, dabbed in a rig, eaten with food or used to fill an empty vape pen. The possibilities are endless
