Cannabis concentrates are weighed and priced by the amount of active cannabinoids, usually measured in milligrams. Any amount of cannabinoids that is over 1 kilogram would be considered bulk or wholesale. Before you order bulk CBD, Distillate or Full Spectrum hemp oil, make sure you understand weights and potency.
CBD isolate is measured by how many active milligrams of CBD are in each container. If a container has 1 kilogram of pure CBD Isolate, that would be almost 10,000 milligrams of CBD. If the Isolate is testing at 99% potency, then 1 gram of CBD would contain about 990 milligrams of CBD. Some producers claim their CBD is anywhere from 96% to 99% CBD content. If you bought a kilo of CBD that tested at 96% CBD content, that would work out to about 9,600 milligrams of CBD. This is why it is important to look from bulk CBD that is at least 99% pure cannabidiol.
Measuring a broad spectrum distillate or a full spectrum distillate is a little more complex than just isolated CBD. If you have a 1 gram cartridge of full spectrum distillate, there may only be 700 milligrams of CBD and other cannabinoids. The amount of the CBD may be less in the full spectrum, but the presence of terpenes and flavonoids will add to the overall effect. The Broad Spectrum Distillate will have 0% THC content and a combination of other cannabinoids and terpenes. If the distillate is made from industrial hemp, there will be high amounts of CBD, and trace amounts of CBD, CBG, CBDa and other cannabinoids. If a concentrate contains 1000 mg total content with a 98% CBD content, then there would be about 980 mg of total CBD in the container. Distillate is also sold by the liter by some suppliers.
Some suppliers have low THC hemp biomass for sale by the pound. This hemp biomass could have anywhere from 3% to 22% CBD content or higher. If you purchase dry flower, they usually sell that by the pound and it is a good idea to find out the CBD content before processing. Some high CBD hemp strains only have 16% THC content.
