Configured as a continuous milling system, the PULVERISETTE 14 classic line with a Cyclone allows continuous feeding of material, and active removal of material from the rotor area – typically within a fraction of a second. Because the homogenisation occurs so quickly and the material is actively removed, there is no time for frictional temperature increase to occur that could cause chemical degradation. Product contact surfaces are stainless steel, or food-grade plastic vacuum hose for the Cyclone, and can all be cleaned thoroughly between batches to reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination. Variable speed motor and range of sieve rings, provides control of particle size output.
Used together with collection vessel, the PULVERISETTE 14 classic line and Cyclone separator allow continuous feeding and homogenisation of CBD material into the low micron range (consistency of talcum powder).
Solid isolates of CBD may be created as a non-homogenous ‘cake’ of material, or as a mixture of loosely associated granules comprising a wide particle size distribution. Creating material suitable for consumption or subsequent formulation in other products typically requires particle size reduction and/or homogenisation. Confirmation of particle size distribution of a given sample may be achieved via traditional sieving methods, or by using a particle size analyser.
Homogenisation – large-scale
Particle size analysis by traditional sieving methods involves passing the material through a series of sieve pans with progressively smaller openings, and calculating the weight of material that is retained in each pan. Data obtained by using this method is limited by the number of different sieves that are used and can be confounded if and when particles stick to the metal surfaces.
Figure 4: The ANALYSETTE 22 was used to measure CBD isolate before & after homogenisation. Starting CBD sample (orange) contained a mixture of loose granules with a wide particle size distribution. Material homogenised using the Variable Speed Rotor Mill PULVERISETTE 14 classic line (purple) resulted in a particle size consistency similar to talcum powder.

CBD has an extensive array of uses for lots of different health issues, here are some of them.
CBD is well known for Its calming effects on the mind and body making it a safer alternative to prescriptive drugs and a wonderfully effective treatment for the symptoms of anxiety, restlessness and insomnia
Our CBD powder is naturally made from refined hemp, all of the potentially harmful ingredients such as chlorophyll oils, terpenes and TCH are removed to extract the pure CBD leaving us with a on psychoactive powder that is safe to use.
CBD Isolate Powder is the purest form of natural CBD and is a fine white powder in appearance and is a cannabidiol in its purity.
Research shows that CBD is a good option in the fight of cancer with its ability to destroy cancerous cells destroy cancerous cells in a non toxic and pain free manner.
The human endocannabinoid system regulates a wide array of essential functions via cannabinoid receptors, including physiological and cognitive processes such as appetite, pain sensation, mood and fertility , . Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), prevalent in hemp (industrial strains of Cannabis sativa) and marijuana plants, respectively, both mimic the chemical structure of the endocannabinoids naturally produced by the body.
There is increasing evidence of the medical and therapeutic benefits of CBD (cannabidiol) – and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)-based products. This has raised the interest of the health, wellness and pharmaceutical industries. The extremely lipophilic character of CBD and THC oils/extracts is limiting their absorption by the human body and is a challenge for beverage manufacturers to develop a stable formulation. Water-based emulsions of CBD/THC oils can overcome these limitations. Both particle size and zeta potential of the oil droplets directly affect quality and stability of the final product. In this application report, the particle size and zeta potential of CBD infused beverages were analyzed using a Litesizer 500 to determine product quality and stability.
The most important difference between THC and CBD is that THC has a psychoactive effect. This is due to the differences in how both substances interact with cannabinoid 1 receptors (CB1), which are mainly expressed in the central nervous system. THC has a high affinity for CB1 receptors, leading to a euphoric intoxication effect. CBD, although structurally very similar to THC, has a low affinity to CB1 receptors and acts in a more antagonistic way.
