CBD Paste Vs CBD Oil?
If you have been keeping up with us, you will have noticed that we have recently added a CBD paste to our range; it has very quickly become a favourite of ours and is the most popular repurchased item!
A CBD paste seems kind of scary – it is in a tube/syringe, it is black and thick and looks as though it should be reserved for the CBD veterans out there. In fact – it is very easy to use and an amazing source of a wide range of naturally occurring amino-acids, waxes, terpenes and cannabinoids; we think that it can be used by beginners as well as those who like a powerful cannabinoid punch.
It may not be for the faint hearted, but it is for those who are serious about the benefits of hemp.
A paste is what we personally use here at CBDiablo and much prefer it to the more popular oil- but what is the difference between the Cannabinoid paste, and a CBD Oil?
CBD Oils & Tinctures
So, as simple as it gets: a CBD oil is made by infusing the Cannabinoid compounds with a carrier oil (like Hemp Seed, Coconut/ MCT or Olive Oil). This can be done by adding an isolated form of CBD, a THC free broad or full-spectrum distillate, concentrate or even the paste. For whatever reason, CBD oil seems to be the most popular CBD product in the UK and is usually the gateway that people use to start their CBD journey.
Oils can come in a very wide range of shapes and sizes. Some are lighter tasting, and thin so they are made specifically to appeal to those with a delicate palate. It means that the oils lots of the ‘good stuff’ has been stripped out and a lot of the natural goodness goes to waste.
Other oils are really thick, strong and contain a lot more of what the Hemp plant has to offer. More often than not, an oil is produced by using a pureed version of the Hemp plant.
We would wager that most of the oils in the UK market only utilise CBD as a cannabinoid, and the other waxes, terpenes and natural amino-acids are taken out of the formula (usually golden or clear oils).
This is something we didn’t like so have ensured that our formula takes advantage of CBD & the whole hemp plant– they may taste like hell but they work like heaven.
Most of these oils come in a little bottle with a pipette and you put drops of the oils underneath your tongue. The great thing about an oil is that it is versatile and the carrier oil also has its own well-being benefits. For instance, an MCT oil is a very effective delivery system and is one of the most health beneficial substances on the planet; olive oil is great for your hair and skin. So, depending on what you need from the CBD product, you can choose a carrier oil that complements the benefits of CBD.
Cannabinoid Extracts & Pastes
A Sativa hemp extract is a pure raw whole plant paste that has been produced specifically to retain the naturally occurring cannabinoids, amino-acids, waxes and terpenes. It is exactly how nature intended it to be.
Compared to oils, cannabinoid pastes contain a much wider range of cannabinoids, including the raw acid form of CBD called CBDa. CBD or cannabinoid pastes (down to the content of other health beneficial cannabinoids) tend to be much more potent and a little goes a long way– this is down to the entourage effect. Many customers find that the paste is much more cost-effective and lasts a lot longer as less works just as well as twice the amount of oil.
Pastes also come in a variety of shapes and sizes- some are thicker and darker, while others are lighter, softer and more liquid. Some taste very strong and bitter, some have a slightly floral note that makes them quite pleasant. This kind of pure hemp extract really sticks to the back of your throat and can put a few hairs on your chin! (not literally) so it may be best to wash it down with a little bit of water or veg juice.
You would usually take the paste in the same way as you would take the oil, but placing a pea-sized (or as you feel best) amount under your tongue. Otherwise, you can rub the paste into your skin, add the paste to food or to a carrier oil to make your very own CBD tincture.
Which is Better?
Well, you can be the judge of this! It is really which product you prefer and which you find easiest to take. The paste is a raw, effective pure product but comes with a very acquired taste – an oil is easy to take, can come in a variety of different forms and has versatility.
We personally turn our paste into an oil to get the best of both worlds, but how you take your CBD is down to you!

You might have heard of CBD and its benefits, and you’re looking to try it. However, you have no idea where to start, and since CBD comes in many forms, you’re a little confused as to which product you want to buy.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid in cannabis, which is responsible for 40 per cent of its benefits, but without the psychoactive effects of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Most CBD products available in the market are extracted from hemp, which only has traces of THC. CBD shows positive effects when it comes to pain, stress, and anxiety relief, among others.
Today, we’ll discuss the main differences between CBD paste and CBD oil to help you decide which is the right form for you.
In general, unless you’re a veteran user, CBD paste is not the type of CBD that can be appealing to consumers. It is placed inside a tube-like apparatus, and the content is black and thick. Even so, CBD paste is still easy to use.
CBD pastes pack a great punch of the powerful effects of the compound. If you’re looking for something more effective, CBD paste is a great form of CBD to try. However, it may not be suitable for beginners since it does have heavy effects on the body due to the concentrated form.
If you feel like exploring and experiencing the effects of CBD, CBD pastes may be perfect for you.
CBD oils are not limited to a single type. These oils come in various forms in terms of texture and concentration. They also have different tastes, which means you have an option to go for a lighter taste if you have a delicate palate. CBD oils can also be thick and strong-tasting.
For a lighter-tasting CBD profile, there will be less concentration, meaning that the effects are also reduced. If you’re looking for a lighter taste but packs a strong punch, that could be a challenge due to the manufacturing process. However, if you’re a beginner, and you don’t want to delve into the deeper and complex side of CBD, a lighter concentration will be more than enough for you to experience CBD. Often no more than a 5% is enough to begin with.
Advantages and disadvantages of CBD Paste and CBD Oil
CBD pastes provide a more comprehensive CBD experience. Because of the higher concentration of CBD, there’s less to no spill in terms of the effects. However, that means it can be a lot more difficult to control the experience since you generally just have a set formula. You don’t have the option to go for a lighter dose or something less overwhelming when you take it.
On the other hand, CBD oils come in various concentration levels. Oils give you the option to choose your dosage and the flavour profile of the product, which is perfect for those who want to experiment on the effects of CBD. CBD oils do have the spill in terms of effects since there is a loss of concentration in the product.
Conclusion: Which is better for you?
When it comes to preferences, there’s no hard-and-fast rule in determining which is better. While there are differences between CBD pastes and CBD oils, their effects are generally the same. That means that the difference mainly lies in the user’s preference when consuming the product. If you want a more full-blown experience, go for CBD pastes. If you want options, CBD oils will be perfect for you.

CBD Oils are made through a chemical extraction process using either butane, Co2, ethanol or alcohol, which destroys up to 99% of the terpenes. CBD oils DO NOT have a cannabis or hemp smell b/c the terpenes completely evaporate during the extraction process. Many companies are using artificial terpenes to ATTEMPT to cover up the damage done
A popular extraction method is butane extraction which leaves behind residue and is loaded with carcinogens
Due to the CBD oil chemical process, CBD oil has a harsh taste and leaves a burning sensation
Isolated CBD is inferior b/c it does not contain any terpenes and has only 1 out of the 118 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. Thus, these products cannot create an entourage effect. CBD is NOT the only medicinal cannabinoid. Several trace cannabinoids such as cannabinoid 17Ca-5 are destroyed through extraction
Due to the fact that about 40% of the cannabinoids are lost and thrown in the trash and COSTLY extraction equipment is needed. Creating CBD oil is one huge expense that is passed on to the consumer
Artificial terpenes can be dangerous to your health
When CBD oil is extracted, it is a thick black tar and needs to be diluted/cut with an oil, such as coconut oil, before it can be sold. When a company concentrates, then dilutes an oil, it loses its medicinal value. Many companies brag about how potent their oil is, but this is misinformation
Hemp Paste is the worldâ€™s ONLY non-extracted CBD product. No chemicals are used in the production process, and when you open a jar of Hemp Paste, you may wonder if it is legal as it smells just like the cannabis/hemp plant. This is because it contains the â€˜whole budâ€™ and the natural terpenes
Hemp Paste uses no chemicals and is cooked in a BPA-free glass mason jar
By nature, the hemp flower is biter but b/c the Hemp Paste is not chemically processed, the natural chlorophyll and terpenes are still intact thus leaving the natural flavors
Hemp Paste utilizes the full Hemp Spectrum, which focuses on all the naturally occurring cannabinoids and terpenes, not just CBD. There are more than 480 components in the cannabis and hemp plant, and all of these components are in the Hemp Paste
Hemp Paste is the lowest priced CBD/Hemp Spectrum product in the world. We can make this medicine 335 times cheaper than the CBD oil industry and pass a savings on to the consumer of greater than 50%. This makes this more affordable with a footprint thousands of times less.
Hemp Paste contains Natural Terpenes which are healthy for you
By nature, the flower is potent enough whereas concentrating it is futile. So, its natural potency is sufficient for any need. You want more potency? Ingest more
Hemp Paste is made by My Nutra of Woodland Park, CO. They are years ahead of most other companies in their growing and manufacturing processes. I have been researching various companies’ products and have decided to align with this company as they have more R&D than any other and remain faithful to ‘least processing methods’.
