Clone refers to two different concepts within the context of CBD:
- CBD clones: In the cannabis industry, a “clone” refers to a cutting or propagation taken from a mature cannabis plant to produce genetically identical offspring. CBD clones, therefore, are cuttings taken from cannabis plants specifically bred to produce high levels of cannabidiol (CBD) and low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). These clones are often used by cultivators to ensure consistency in CBD production and to replicate desirable genetic traits in subsequent generations of plants.
- CBD isolate: Alternatively, “clone CBD” could refer to CBD isolate, which is the purest form of CBD available. CBD isolate is produced through the extraction and purification of cannabidiol from hemp or cannabis plants, resulting in a crystalline powder that is nearly 100% pure CBD. CBD isolate contains no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or plant compounds, making it ideal for individuals who want to experience the effects of CBD without any other compounds present.
