Cold Pressed CBD Oil | The Traditional Way Of Extraction

You might have heard of cold pressing before. When you pay a visit to your local supermarket racks are filled with cold pressed olive oils, sunflower seed oils, etc. But have you ever heard of Cold Pressed CBD oil?

Extracting CBD oil from hemp with the cold press method is by far the most natural and environmentally friendly technique there is. The result of such a practice is CBD oil that contains more elements of the hemp plant, in the ratios that are naturally found in organic hemp plants.

What’s Cold Pressing?

Cold pressed CBD oil is made using a method known as cold press extraction. Cold-pressed cannabis oil is made by first grinding the flowers, seeds, stems, and leaves into a paste. Then mainly an oil stone is used to press the paste which forces the oil to be isolated from the plant mass. Oil extracted with this method contains more components of the hemp plant, like natural fats, vitamins, fatty acids, and nutrients. Cold pressed cannabis oil has a different taste than CBD oil extracted with ethanol or CO2.

Why Is Extraction Method Important?

Extraction methods matter and results alternate the final product. Cold pressing is widely recognized in many industries from cold pressed oils to cold pressed juices. What’s so great about it? Cold pressing cannabis oil means that the unique balance of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids will remain as similar as they would exist in the original plant.

Therefore, you could say that cold pressed CBD oil is the most ‘organic’ extract available.

As we already mentioned cold pressing cannabis oil is a mechanical process, that uses force to press out natural oils from the Hemp plant.

The oils extracted with this method include the cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, and CBN, and terpenes such as Limonene, Pinene, Caryophyllene, Terpinolene, and Myrcene. One of the main reasons cold pressing isn’t broadly used for CBD extraction is because when using this specific technique of extraction some of the CBD remains within the original plant material. The extraction just isn’t efficient enough to separate solely CBD isolate, therefore other cannabinoids end up in the oil as well. If you don’t mind this fact then cold pressed CBD oil may be a good solution for you!

On the other hand, alternative methods of extraction are highly efficient at extracting the maximum amount of compounds found in the cannabis plant. The problem is that they have to rely on more invasive means in order to do so. Many of them result in a decent product in the end, but there is often a downside as this may interrupt the balance of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds found in the cannabis plant. Meaning the extract is less natural, which can lead to the inability of cannabis compounds to interact and synergize.


If you are looking for the most natural way to ingest CBD, cold pressed CBD oil is the way to go, assuming that you don’t mind the presence of other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. You will enjoy all the pleasant effects that CBD has to offer without other compounds being added to your oil. There is nothing else but the whole cannabis plant!
