Pastes differ from oils, as they (should) contain a better overall phytonutrient profile. A good quality paste will contain higher levels of its cannabinoid constituents - including CBC, CBN and CBG. It will also contain higher amounts of chlorophyll, fatty acids, amino acids, flavonoids and terpenes. Essentially, a paste is more “concentrated” than an oil.
The main advantage oils have over pastes is ease of use. Pastes may also taste a little stronger, but if the oil is a true full spectrum, whole plant extract, then there won’t be a big difference in taste.
After extraction, rather than additional filtering, The woods co-op raw paste extract is thinned out slightly (for ease of use) by adding a little MCT oil; this also aids absorption.
We have found people to have a better reaction to the paste and it may last longer. We tried one for ouselves and it lasted 9 weeks serving two rice size pieces a day so great value.
