CBD crystalline can be measured and put into capsules or pills, allowing you to ingest an accurate dose. You can also mix CBD isolate with a variety of ingredients to create CBD-infused food and drinks. However, because CBD is not absorbed very well by the gastrointestinal tract, it has a low oral bioavailability. In order to increase bioavailability, CBD isolate can be added to carrier oils, such as MCT oil, to increase its chances of permeating the gastrointestinal system and reaching the bloodstream.
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.
Once all of the impurities and solvents are stripped away, you’re left with 99% pure CBD crystalline.
Frequently asked questions
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.
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.
CBD is cannabidiol, a phytocannabinoid found in cannabis plants. CBD isolate is CBD that has been isolated from all other plant material through a process of extraction and refining. CBD isolate is available in crystal or powder form.
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.
Any help appreciated!
Newbie here. I tried BB classic 6x and it gave me more anxiety each time (I’m trying CBD for anxiety/chronic stress). They recommended the regular strength (less thc) and the isolate. Is it best to just make my own oil with it or what is the most effective way to use isolate? And is 1 gram a good amount to try before I know if it’s working (or should I order more before giving up on it if it doesn’t)?
I vape both my isolate in powder and slab form (lazerus naturals and cbdistillery, respectfully) in an Atmos Kiln vaporizer pen. With the powder I just press the button for 2-3 seconds to melt the powder into the coil before I inhale so it doesn't all fly into the top cap! I also really like Cbdistillery's Terpsolates, specifically Jack Herer. They have strain-specific terpenes that definitely add to the experience for me, hope this helps!! Don't give up, CBD is a miracle compound for me
I don't want to bake or vape. Is it possible to just orally take it? What's a good starting dose? I've had CBD gummies at 20mg but those were not 99% pure. If I take it orally do I let sit under my tongue or do I toss and wash?
I'm a noob to CBD products for the most part. So any feedback would be appreciated.
For me it works better just the powder under tongue until dissolved, well I try to keep it in there at least 30secs-1min. then swallow which is not much anyway. I did try making my own oil with coconut but nop, I think, for me, it works better alone. Start slow, 1-3-5mg and raise everyday until you feel comfortable that is working. I also started with 15gm gummies but I did cut them in 3 parts the first days but isolate you need less as its concentrated. After a month I take 7-10mg twice per day, looks like its working for my anxiety, we'll see.
