I would like to get a discussion going on the topic of CBD crystallization: both wanted and unwanted.
We often want to force, accelerate, and optimize crystal formation, but what about the flip-side of the coin being unwanted crystallization within an extract intended for use in a cartridge or device of sorts? CBD isolation is much easier, often happening without any encouragement at all. That being said, has anyone had or heard of a successful formulation with a high (>60%) CBD potency and low (<10%) THC potency in which crystal formation did not eventually occur? All of my R/D leads me to believe that potential for crystallization within CBD extracts is relative to potency as anytime CBD potency begins to creep beyond 50-60% while THC remains low there is accelerated crystallization. Not a problem formulating something in the 35-45% CBD/ 15-25% THC range, but as soon as the relative distance increases, instability goes out the window.
