The colour of CBD oil is determined by a few factors:
The colour of CBD oil can vary hugely, especially in an ever growing market with many different brands available. This makes it hard to know how to identify the best quality CBD oil.
At KLORIS we use MCT (Medium Chain Triglyceride) oil derived from Organic Coconuts as our carrier oil. While more expensive to use, this is a colourless and flavourless oil which mixes very effectively with CBD to ensure an even distribution throughout the bottle. MCT is also very easily absorbed by the body, helping to make the CBD more bioavailable, giving the most benefit per drop.
It can be easy to become confused when choosing, and when it comes to your health and wellness, especially if you have a budget, you need to know that the CBD oil you buy will be the most effective one for your needs.
Using a higher concentrate CBD oil along with MCT means that KLORIS CBD oils are of a pale and light gold colour with a lighter, more palatable taste.
The highly refined CBD is then combined with a base like coconut or MCT oil for a final product that’s usually flavorless, nearly transparent, and extremely fluid.

By consequence, decarboxylated oils have a higher concentration of CBD and generally take effect more quickly than raw oils as they’re easier for your body to process.
Raw CBD oil is exactly what it sounds like: “raw.” Once extracted from the hemp plant, this type of oil undergoes no further processing or filtration, resulting in a green, viscous oil packed with plant compounds and cannabinoids like CBDA and THCA.
CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, produced by removing all other plant compounds found in hemp including terpenes, flavonoids, chlorophyll, and other cannabinoids.
Extraction Methods Matter Because…
Because CBD oil is often made from industrial hemp, in which case CBD must come from the seeds and stalks of the plant, CO2 extraction methods are most often used. CO2 extraction methods use a combination of temperature and pressure to extract the CBD from the plant material. In the CBD industry, CO2 extraction methods are often considered the gold standard because they don’t involve the use of chemical solvents and do a better job of preserving CBD and other beneficial chemical compounds.
How CBD Oil is Made
Decarboxylated CBD is slightly heated after extraction to convert CBDA into CBD but still retain a high level of phytonutrients, as indicated by the greenish brown color.
The color of CBD oil can offer some clues about the quality and makeup of the product. In order understand more about this, it helps to understand how CBD oil is made.
Pink cannabinoid infusions often indicate a highly pure, natural extraction process. These oils contain polyphenol oxidase, a compound found in a variety of plants, including hemp. As light and oxygen are gradually introduced to this oxidase, its colour changes and the pure carrier oil picks up a pink hint. Beyond this colour shift, the total value of these hemp infusions remains unaltered.

Cannabidiol boosts levels of an internally produced cannabinoid compound called AEA. AEA, or anandamide, the “bliss” molecule, activates both CB1 and CB2 receptors, primarily CB1. AEA self regulates its levels, balancing its concentrations with another endocannabinoid 2-AG. As AEA rises, 2-AG naturally rises too. 2-AG has a higher affinity for CB2, but also frequently activates CB1 receptors.
