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.
While you might not know what to do with a pile of odorless CBD isolate powder at first, there are a number of different ways to consume CBD isolate. Here are some of the most common delivery routes:
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate can be mixed with terpenes to create homemade CBD concentrates that can be vaped or dabbed. The isolate can also be made into crystal slabs that can be dabbed using a traditional oil rig.
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.
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.
Individual genetic makeup can make people more or less receptive to the effects of CBD isolates. Some people naturally have more cannabinoid receptors to interact with the CBD delivered through CBD isolates.
Once absorbed by the body, the CBD delivered through pure CBD powder directly interacts with these two cannabinoid receptors. While some other cannabinoids fit inside a cannabinoid receptor as a key fits into a lock, CBD instead sits imperfectly inside them. What this means is that not only does the CBD from CBD isolate crystals fail to activate the receptors, but it also blocks any other cannabinoids or neurotransmitters from activating them.
At 99 percent purity, our CBD isolate is the most potent CBD product available. In just a small jar, you can find 990 mg of high-quality CBD. How you choose to consume and use that CBD is ultimately up to you. Like when starting any new health routine, it is recommended to begin with a low serving and gradually work your way up as needed.
Some see CBD isolates and mistakenly believe that this CBD crystalline is synthetic or made in a lab. However, the truth is that CBD isolates are an all-natural product that is created using the same cannabidiol oil as our other CBD products.
Your overall physical health and the presence of any health conditions can alter biochemistry, potentially influencing how the body responds to pure CBD powder.
In states where recreational marijuana is legal, the list of cannabis-derived products greatly expands to include CBD with much higher THC content than 0.3%.
Clinical research indicates that CBD is effective at treating epilepsy. Anecdotal evidence suggests it can help with pain and even anxiety – though scientifically the jury is still out on that.
“Pure” CBD, also called “CBD isolate,” is called that because all other cannabinoids have been removed. So have terpenes and flavonoids, which give marijuana its strong aroma and earthy flavor.
Hemp, marijuana and cannabanoidals
Though 15 states have now legalized recreational marijuana, it remains illegal federally in the United States. Technically, those in possession of marijuana in a legal weed state can still be punished under federal law, and traveling across state borders with cannabis is prohibited.
The Drug Enforcement Agency categorizes cannabis as a Schedule 1 substance, meaning it handles cannabis as if there is no accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Scientists don’t know exactly how CBD works, nor how it interacts with other cannabinoids like THC to give marijuana its added therapeutic effects.
While 67% of U.S. adults support marijuana legalization, public knowledge about cannabis is low. A third of Americans think hemp and marijuana are the same thing, according to the National Institutes of Health, and many people still search Google to find out whether cannabidiol – a cannabis derivative known as CBD – will get them high, as marijuana does.
