If someone is testing for CBD isolate, yes. But common drug tests look for THC and its metabolites. And part of the point of CBD isolate is that it doesn’t contain any THC, unlike full-spectrum CBD products, which are legally permitted to contain up to 0.3% THC. Generally, worries about CBD oil and drug testing are unwarranted but it’s even less of an issue with CBD isolate.
While consuming CBD isolate might sound like a great approach, keep in mind that there is also a key disadvantage of isolating CBD from other cannabis compounds. Research has shown that the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes generates an entourage effect, a synergistic interaction that boosts the individual effects of each compound involved. Stripping away all the other cannabinoids prevents you from experiencing the potential benefits of the entourage effect.
CBD isolate is a crystalline solid or powder that contains 99% pure CBD. A traditional extraction process removes all the active compounds from the cannabis plant. Then, a refining process that strips away all other phytocannabinoids, including THC, and any plant matter. What remains is the CBD chemical compound in its purest form.
Can you test positive for CBD isolate?
It might not seem as appealing as the well-packaged CBD oil, topicals, or pre-rolls, but CBD crystalline is surprisingly versatile when it comes to consumption, and this pure powder has a number of advantages over other conventional forms of CBD.
It depends on who you ask and why they are using CBD. Isolate is best for avoiding any possible trace of THC while full-spectrum may confer the additional benefits of other cannabinoids and terpenes via the entourage effect.
Anyone who wants to try CBD oil or other products may get cold feet after hearing about the presence of THC in hemp-derived products. But CBD isolate provides a way to enjoy the benefits of this cannabinoid without other unwanted plant parts.
It’s incredibly easy to measure CBD isolate dosages, as there’s nothing else to account for aside from the pure CBD crystals.

The CBD market is still the wild wild west. Anyone can make it, sell it and slap a misleading or even outright false label on their product. With so many brands to choose from, it can be hard to determine who to trust. Instead of just claiming our products are the best, we show you. All of our products are backed by our batch tracking system so you can view a certificate of analysis for the product in your hand. Yes, many companies provide a COA, and some are legit. However, many are showing you an old, irrelevant COA. Even some of the biggest names in the business have gotten busted for inaccurate lab reports! We put a tracking number on all products that you can use to view the COA specific to each batch produced. What about 3rd party testing? Here’s what we can say about that… we are a lab, and we provide analytical services just like other labs, therefore, it is both cost-effective and of a higher quality to use our own facility. This is not a compromise. It is the only way we can provide the best quality and best value possible. Therefore, it is directly in line with our core values and mission as a company. Occasionally, a CBD vetting company will have our products tested by multiple 3rd-party labs, and guess what they find? We have been awarded the highest standards for perfect scores. One company (CBD Examine) went so far as to detail that per cannabinoid volume, our tinctures are the best quality and value on the market.
Extract Labs is privately owned. When you shop with us, you are purchasing a product made by the hardest working people in the industry. We are all obsessed with making the best CBD products available to everyone. Your hard-earned money doesn’t go into the pockets of investors. It goes towards upgrading equipment to lower product costs, research into new cannabinoids, and helps keep a roof over the heads of our 40-something employees.
Ingredients: Pure CBD Isolate
Please consult a physician before use.
Isolate is one of the most versatile cannabinoid products available. It can be ingested via food and drinks or sprinkled on flower. It can also be blended with topicals, tinctures and more.
Ninety-nine percent pure CBD isolate is derived entirely from American hemp that is refined down until only cannabidiol is left. The refinement process converts the extract from a liquid to a potent solid. The white powder concentrate is tasteless and easy to incorporate into DIY CBD creations.
Each gram of isolate includes a double-ended dosing spoon for individual dosing portions. The small end yields 10 to 15 milligrams of CBD and the larger end yields 25 to 30 milligrams of CBD. Use up to two times daily.
