What is CBD Paste
Essentially CBD Paste is a pure and undiluted form of CBD oil drops. It is in fact the base extract from which full spectrum CBD drops are made. In that perspective, you could say it is a more concentrated form of hemp oil. Suggesting that its effects could be more potent as well. And while the cannabinoid content in these extracts are often higher than your regular CBD oil contains; there are still hemp oil blends out there with higher CBD percentages.
How CBD Paste is made
CBD Paste is a raw hemp extract which is produced using a CO2-extraction technique. This helps to separate the active compounds - like cannabinoids and terpenes - from the flowers and leafs of hemp plants. Resulting in a dark colored, thick, paste-like substance carrying all valuable elements from hemp. When this is diluted with a carrier oil - like hemp seed oil for example - you’ll have a bottle of full spectrum CBD oil. But because of the thick structure of these extracts, this pure and unprocessed CBD Paste is often offered in handy dosing syringes.
Some producers however do not protect the purity of these extracts and might supplement their CBD Paste with a bit of cocoa butter or coconut oil; for - as they say - ‘easier use’. While others might try to artificially increase the cannabinoid content of the paste, by adding CBD Crystals to the extract. However, at DNH we do not believe in altering these raw hemp derivates at all. So we make sure our products are immediately packed and stored after extraction. Keeping our hemp extracts fresh and as close to the natural composition of the hemp plant as possible. As we believe this offers the best possible effects on your endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract
These raw hemp extracts are in no way refined after extraction. Meaning that this full spectrum ‘CBD Paste’ contains more than just Cannabidiol (CBD), as suggested above. In fact, you’ll also find a range of other active ingredients from the hemp plant in our CBD Hemp Paste syringes.
This includes vegetal cannabinoids such as Cannabidiolic-acid or CBD-A; as found in our CBD-A oil. But also Cannabigerol (CBG) - the main ingredient in our CBG oil - Cannabichromene (CBC), Cannabinol (CBN) and trace amounts of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in most cases. However, these extracts legally may never contain more than 0,2% of the latter. Considering THC might cause a high or stoned feeling when consumed in higher concentrations.
In other words, hemp paste contains just enough THC to support Cannabidiol’s entourage effect - but an insufficient amount to provide you with a high or stoned feeling. Just like our oils, CBD Paste is therefor safe and legal to use and possess in most parts of the world.
Moreover, pure hemp extracts like CBD Paste might also contain a variety of plant natural terpenes. Terpenes are aromatic compounds which give hemp their unique smell. Furthermore, terpenes are also important assets to support the entourage effect of cannabinoids. Some of the terpenes you might find in a high quality CBD paste include Myrcene, Pinene and Limonene to name a few. All substances you will also find in our original 8% CBD oil. Accordingly, the effects of CBD Paste are also comparable to the effects of CBD oil. Using and dosing CBD paste however, is a completely different story.
How to use CBD Paste
Because while the effects of hemp paste are somewhat comparable to those of CBD oil, its usage is far from the same. Starting with the fact that full spectrum CBD Paste is not at all liquid at room temperature. Hence why it is not sold in a bottle with a dropper, like most of our oils are. Instead, you’ll receive a syringe with the thick paste-like structure when you order CBD Paste at Dutch Natural Healing.
To use DNH CBD Paste, take the cap off of the syringe and carefully push out a small portion of the substance onto a spoon, your finger or nail. Obviously make sure you’ve washed your hands carefully before you do so! Also, take it slow and try to start with a portion the size of a rice grain. Try not to press out too much, because you’ll have a hard time to get it back in the syringe if you do. If the product is hard to push out, try warming the substance up by placing the syringe close to a warm part of the body for a while - like under your armpit or in the palm of a warm hand.
When you have the desired CBD Paste dose on your finger, place the ‘blob’ under your tongue. Here, the enzymes in your saliva will break down much of the paste’s structure, allowing your body to absorb the active ingredients better. The majority of the active ingredients is then quickly absorbed through receptors in the mouth’s mucous tissue. While the rest is absorbed by the digestive system after it is swallowed.
Benefits and alternatives to CBD Paste
As said before, CBD paste often contains a higher concentration of cannabinoids compared to most ‘standard’ CBD oils. In DNH’s case, we’re looking at approximately 16,5% of CBD in the paste compared to 8% of the cannabinoid in our signature oil. Hence why it is more difficult to enjoy a low dosage of Cannabidiol with this type of extracts; compared to when you use CBD oil.

Accordingly, high-CBD hemp extracts are better suited for taking larger doses when trying to battle more serious issues. CBD Paste however is not always the logical next step when you’re trying to get more effect out of your cannabinoid supplement. Especially considering the relatively low bioavailability of cannabinoids in their raw form.
So if you order our CBD Paste but it does not provide you with the desired results, get in touch with us for advice. After all, your personal situation might require a different type of CBD product to reach the desired effects. Instead of just increasing your CBD oil dosage or choosing a stronger supplement like CBD Paste. There might be another product better suited to help treat whatever it is you’re trying to fight.
