We start by separating our CBD-rich hemp flowers from the stalk. Then those flowers undergo an organic sugarcane ethanol extraction. Rather than processing it any further, we keep every bit of naturally occurring full spectrum cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and other wholesome hemp goodness. This gives our whole flower formula a natural amber color and a robust hemp flavor. That's why we call it "whole flower."
No, CBD oil won't get you high. CBD does not bind with the receptors in the brain like THC does, which is why CBD is not considered to be an intoxicant.
Whole Flower CBD Oil FAQ's
How is Whole Flower CBD Oil made?
Third Party Lab Report
CBD oil is made by taking a high CBD hemp plant that is below 0.3% THC and extracting the cannabinoids. This hemp extract is then mixed with a carrier oil like MCT coconut oil or hempseed oil. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains all the cannabinoids in their natural ratios, including THC, which work in tandem with our endocannabinoid system.

Individuals the world over use CBD oil for a multitude of reasons. However, its potential healing power comes not only from CBD, but the rich collection of fellow cannabinoids and terpenes within the plant structure. When we use the term “whole plant”, we are actually referring to the entire spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes provided by the cannabis flowers and small leaves. It is the inclusion of these compounds that enhances the natural therapeutic properties of CBD. As mentioned previously, this phenomenon is commonly regarded as the entourage effect.
The entourage effect is highly beneficial for boosting the natural therapeutic properties of CBD; and as long as it is extracted and purified to the correct standard, CBD oil will feature only trace amounts of THC. Before we delve too deeply into the benefits of high-grade whole plant extraction, first we will outline how CBD is extracted from hemp plants in the first place.
That is precisely what you get at Cibdol—CBD oil produced to the highest standard by extraction specialists all residing under the roof of our world-class laboratory in Switzerland. There is, however, a difference between whole plant extraction and pure CBD isolates derived from flowers, regardless of whether high-grade CO₂ was used to obtain both.
Whole plant extraction
As the CBD market expands, it’s becoming less of a question of whether consumers should use CBD, and more about which CBD products to choose and how to ingest them. Regarding the quality and purity of CBD oil, there are a number of processes throughout production that not only alter the integrity of the final product, but how much of an “entourage effect” you experience.
By utilising whole plant extraction, not only will specific terpenes and cannabinoids be retained—many of which would be destroyed under older, more redundant extraction methods—but the number of additional compounds can be carefully controlled. This ensures consumers get a product that wholly incorporates the power and full spectrum of the cannabis sativa plant.
So you may be wondering, why does Cibdol aim for whole plant extractions?
If whole plant extraction retains a spectrum of cannabinoids and other chemicals, flower extraction targets select parts of the cannabis plant with the purpose of extracting specific cannabinoids—in this case CBD—and discarding any additional compounds. While cannabidiol has earned recognition in its own right, studies show a bell-shaped dose-response to higher concentrations of pure CBD.
A review of past research into the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD had revealed to the scientists that administration of pure, or isolated, CBD in these pre-clinical studies resulted in a bell-shaped dose-response curve, meaning that CBD stopped having any therapeutic effect beyond a certain amount. (This is one of the reasons it can be difficult to figure out what dosage of CBD is best for each individual). The researchers wondered whether a whole plant CBD extract would respond any differently. They discovered that unlike the bell-shaped dose-response curve of isolated CBD, the anti-inflammatory, anti-pain response of whole plant CBD increased with dose, making whole plant CBD ideal for clinical use.
There are several reasons why these products are so much more effective, and you can feel free to contact us to learn more. One of the main reasons is that THE STALKS AND LEAVES ARE NOT USED as the material from which to extract CBD. Only the flower of the cannabis/hemp plant is used, and nothing besides plant matter is removed from the product, so you are receiving nature’s complete medicine – in a raw and complete form!
The Entourage Effect refers to the more than 480 natural components of cannabis all working together to provide increased results and greater ease of symptoms than isolated cannabis compounds.
Whole Flower CBD™ Extraction Process
In 2016 after being in business for more than 2 years, we learned about a proprietary extraction technology which keeps intact and raw the entire flower, providing a complete plant medicine. At the time we had many other products, and we added the Whole Flower CBD products to this website. Very soon, the fantastic feedback came pouring in.
“It is likely that other components in the extract synergize with CBD to achieve the desired anti-inflammatory action that may contribute to overcoming the bell-shaped dose-response of purified CBD.”
This term was coined by the same person who first isolated the CBD (and THC) compounds and discovered and named the Endocannabinoid System.
The extraction process of whole flower CBD is significantly different than the way other extraction methods are done. Rather than isolate the many components of the plant in order to extract the ones desired for use in making tinctures or other products, whole flower extraction is designed to keep all of the plant components together and intact. This allows for a much gentler handling of the plant from harvest to final product.
