What is a CBD Concentrate, and How Does it Work?

Before we start talking about the many kinds of CBD concentrates out there, let’s talk about what CBD concentrate is. A CBD Concentrate is a CBD product containing high-level cannabidiol. Concentrates offer the ability to receive high-potency CBD products in a short time, allowing users to feel the full effects of CBD.

CBD Concentrates: Here are 3 Types

CBD concentrates usually fall into three main categories. They are Isolate, Full-spectrum, And Broad-Spectrum. Each category is determined primarily by the active ingredients contained in the extract. Continue reading for more information on each of these primary categories.

CBD Isolate: CBD isolate contains a high concentration of CBD and virtually no other active compounds. By using high-pressure liquid chromatography, CBD isolate is almost completely separated from all other active compounds in the plant.

Full-Spectrum CBN: Full-spectrum CBD has many extracts taken from the hemp plant. It may also contain CBD, terpenes, essential oil, cannabinol, or tetrahydrocannabinol.

Broad-Spectrum Cannabidiol: Broader-spectrum CBD is very comparable to full-spectrum CBD. It contains many of the active compounds found within the hemp plant as well as full-spectrum. Broad-spectrum CBD has no THC, unlike full-spectrum CBD.

Different CBD Concentrates

CBD concentrates come in many different types than the three listed categories. Below you will find information about some of our most popular CBD extracts.


It is similar in appearance to candle wax. However, wax is typically made from butane (or CO2) extraction. Butane or CO2 extract is still the most popular option in the industry. They can create high-quality, clean wax that has a potency between 65 percent and 90 percent CBD. In addition to CBD, wax contains many other compounds and synergistic phytochemicals. Wax has a yellowish-yellow color and is typically darker in appearance.

Most users prefer to use a wax dabbing tool as the wax is extremely sticky. CBD wax concentrates can vary in texture from sticky to crumbly, depending on the type. The extraction process, heat, and moisture will influence the wax’s texture. Budder and Brittle are two examples of common wax types.


Budder, a type of CBD wax concentrate, is another variation. It has a thick consistency and is made with oils that are high in moisture. Budder is created when CBD extract is purified at a higher temperature. Next, the solvent is extracted by vigorous whipping of the substance. The wax CBD concentrate will then be given a creamier texture. Budder, similar in potency to wax, can be made using a butane- or CO2 extraction process.


Crumble is another type of CBD concentrate. Also known as honeycomb or crumble, crumble is a form of CBD concentrates with a brittle consistency. It’s not sticky or gooey. Crumble is similar to wax or budder. It is typically extracted using butane and CO2.

The extract is stripped of less moisture as it goes. The crumble has a greater water content which results in a product that is more solid, less viscous, and with a crumbly texture. Crumple is easier to use and manage than wax or bead because it is less sticky.
