Pure Spectrum CBD Review
More Than Just a CBD Vape Pen
Pure Spectrum’s CBD Honey Oil is a golden-delicious treat for those looking to consume CBD with the maximum entourage effect. Using supercritical cold CO2 extraction methods, this oil contains other cannabinoids and terpenes and tastes great. Who doesn’t love the flavor of bubblegum? This pre-filled cartridge is a plug-n-play process.
Here’s The Deal:
With a vape pen, there is fussing with thick concentrates or loose herb. The cartridges come in the typical pharmaceutical grade bottle to be plugged in to the corresponding PURE pen, once it is charged. The oil itself is honey golden-brown in color. The PURE pen allows for three different temperature settings, although the website recommends that it’s best vaped at medium and low temperatures. This is a great product for both new and experienced users. Pure Spectrum CBD uses the gold standard in extraction methodology and the company’s stated mission demonstrates their commitment to giving their customers the best experience. With a trademark on the slogan, “Not all CBD is created equal,” the website states that these products are 99% pure. You can also reach out to the CEO directly.
What you Need to Know About This CBD Oil
Pure Spectrum CBD states that their products will never contain pesticides nor herbicides. Using a supercritical cold CO2 extraction process (detailed below), Pure Spectrum CBD goes to lengths to preserve the integrity of their CBD oil. They even offer customized hemp blends. The Honey CBD oil comes in bubblegum and sour diesel flavors, retaining a pure golden color. The raw CBD extract is infused with organic terpene profiles including 6.56% of other cannabinoids.
Coloration and Viscosity
The cartridges come pre-filled and maintain a golden brown color with a thinner, vape-oil viscosity.
What does color mean about a CBD Oil?
The color of CBD oil can convey information about the ingredients in the mixture as well as the level of filtering. Pure Spectrum CBD uses supercritical cold CO2 extraction methods and states that the product is “organic, solvent-free, highly potent, fuller and more flavorful with the strongest efficacy available.” The website also states that they use a proprietary infusion processes that maintain the terpenes. Supercritical cold CO2 extraction is the gold standard in extraction methods. Supercritical CO2 can be a stronger solvent than subcritical CO2 and can extract higher molecular weight materials, producing a more complete extraction. Cold separation is important because it maintains THCA or CBDA and does not decarboxylate extracted oils in the process. Heat degrades botanical oils and can extract plant material, like chlorophyll, giving raw oils their green color.
Flavor and Scent
How does it smell?
The Honey Oil cartridges come in two flavors — bubble gum and sour diesel. If I didn’t know this, it would be hard to recognize a scent because the smell of the vapor is so subtle if not unrecognizable. The Pure Pen does produce a nice, clean vapor that is easy to inhale.
How does it taste?
The bubble gum cartridge does taste like bubble gum. The sour diesel has a lemon, citrus taste to it, but both flavors are subtle when inhaled. Overall, the subtle taste of the vapor is pleasant in that it omits the many unforgiving aspects of tasting and consuming CBD oil orally.
Cannabidiol Extract Vape Cartridges
Pure Spectrum CBD also sells a cannabidiol extract. The label states, “Pure Spectrum Cannabidiol Extract is formulated to bridge the gap between recreational and medicinal vaping.” These cartridges contain 100mg of Pure Spectrum CBD as well as organic MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil, terpenes, and other cannabinoids. MCT oil is a form of the saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. MCT oil is often manufactured to replicate the MCTs naturally found in coconut oil and is generally regarded as inferior to natural coconut oil itself. These cartridges come in flavors, Bubblegum, Sour Diesel, Tangerine Haze and flavorless.
These cartridges are tested to ensure that there is less than .3% THC and more than 25.5% raw CBD extract infused with organic terpene profiles including 6.56% other cannabinoids. The company also states that their CBD is organic from seed to sale. The products are also labeled as Non-GMO and Solvent Free. I’m guessing that “Solvent Free” is referring to the CBD extract processes. However, most MCT oil is manufactured using chemical/solvent refining. Pure Spectrum states that the MCT oil in these products is organic, but doesn’t state which organization certified the product as organic. Finally, these pens are designed with larger intake holes designed not to leak and to handle thicker, more potent oils. These cartridges taste similar to the flavors they represent. The Bubblegum tastes true to flavor and the Sour Diesel and Tangerine Haze have a distinct citrus taste.
The Pure Spectrum CBD Vape Pen with Honey Oil CBD Cartridge is an enjoyable, clean-feeling vapor for consumers on the go. This portable pen heats up quickly and has three different voltage settings plus a pre-heat setting. It also comes with a USB charger. Everything about this pen was a good experience — it’s easy to use, inhales cleanly, and uses organic products. I would highly recommend this pen for anyone interested in vaporizing CBD oil who is looking for a full-profile experience that includes other cannabinoids and terpenes. The small company is based out of Evergreen, Colorado and has said that it collaborates with scientists, researchers, bio-tech companies, and a University (the name of the University is unannounced). The contact page lists the phone number and email of the CEO, a refreshing indication of transparency. Pure Spectrum CBD uses supercritical cold CO2 extraction methods to ensure its products preserve the beneficial ingredients of the plant, which is one of the ways to enhance the entourage effect when consuming. For less than $50, this pen is a winner for both newbies and experienced consumers alike.
What’s Important To Know About Pure Spectrum CBD
Pure Spectrum CBD’s mission is, “to establish a new, higher standard for manufacturing CBD.” The company has listed partnerships with Cannabis Research Foundation, Industrial Hemp Research Foundation, and Sievers Bio Tech, but does not disclose information about the partnerships. There is a publicly listed customer service email address and phone number. Pure Spectrum CBD also responds to feedback and posts on their Facebook page. The website’s library page links health conditions to corresponding studies and research on CBD, providing a resource for those looking for health-related information. They are proud of their commitment to no propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin in their products — additives typical of other e-liquids and nicotine products. This was one of my favorite oil pens that I’ve tried so far. I enjoyed the product itself and appreciate the company’s commitment to transparency, collaboration, and raising the standards for manufacturing in an industry that is prone to snake-oil salesmen. Pure Spectrum CBD’s products are free from unpleasant additives and are comprised of extracts using the highest standard in extraction technology. All-in-all, I highly recommend this product.
