What are CBD Crystals?
Cannabidiol Crystalline is another name for Pure CBD, CBD Crystals or CBD Isolate. CBD is found in cannabis and hemp plants. Second to THC, CBD is the abundant compound found in the cannabis plant. Other forms of CBD include Full Spectrum CBD, Broad Spectrum CBD, and THC Free CBD.
How do they get the CBD out of the plant?
There are many extraction methods to get the CBD out of the plant:

The first extraction of the CBD oil will result in a Full Spectrum CBD oil, then it can be processed to remove the terpenes and other compounds to create Broad Spectrum, THC free or pure CBD.
