Can you reverse crystallization in high CBD disty

Short of PH swings is there any other options to get cbd disty above 75% from crashing out?

Blending other minors seems to be the most common thing people are doing to prevent crashing.

Yeah… or terps.

or keep it under 65% CBD or use CBDa and avoid heat

Ph modulation; will inhibit crystalization.

Can the recrystallization of CBD really only be inhibited by increasing the pH?
In one experiment, I dissolved 5 grams of distillate (CBD content 94%) in 50 ml of ethanol and added 5 grams of MgO. The oil was then purple, but was completely recrystallized after 24 hours.
Would alkanes as solvents maybe lead to a different result?

Alkanes are very basic. Of course you can use non polar alkanes to crystallize. Adding acids would end in the same result just needing more acid to reach the ph levels to get the same results
