From The CBD Blog: Our CBD products are sourced directly from hemp crops. Hemp is apart of the Cannabis family, but it is not the same as other plants that come from the same family. Hemp crops can be used for many different different applications such as clothing, paper, accessories, and of course, for medicinal purposes. To get CBD isolate from hemp, however, you must first extract hemp oil from the plant. The oil then goes through a purifying process that removes all other elements from the oil except for CBD, and what remains is the CBD crystals that is the CBD isolate. This process of extracting the CBD crystals ensures that the CBD isolate you take is as pure a CBD product you can receive.
