How is CBD resin made?
Cannabidiol resin is made in the same way as traditional hashish, the only difference is that flowers with very low THC content are used. The manufacturing principle is based on the fact that the cannabis flowers are separated from the trichomes. The latter are very small resinous tassels which are almost not visible to the naked eye, they cover all the flower of cannabis. The majority of the aromatic molecules are contained in these glands. By recovering the trichomes, we can concentrate the CBD. CBD resin is composed of agglomerations of trichomes that form a block or plate.
The trichomes can be separated in different ways, usually a sieve is used and CBD oil is added to form a pellet or platelet. This not only makes the preparation more malleable, but also helps to impart more flavor to the resin.
