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 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.
How to use 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.
There are various processes used to produce CBD isolate from industrial hemp extracts, such as supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) or ethanol-based extractions. The same extraction methods can also be used as a starting point for the production of THC isolate as well, but typically with marijuana plants instead of industrial hemp. To create an isolate, a number of components are removed from the plant, including other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, as well as fats, lipids, and other compounds. After that, the CBD compound is separated from the rest of the extraction through a series of chemical washing and separation processes.
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:
You may wonder if the chemical process to produce CBD isolate makes this type of CBD man-made or synthetic… and the answer is NO! It’s still all-natural. This type of CBD is still plant-derived and is simply just a purified version of the hemp extract, which contains only the CBD compound.
The uses of CBD are growing due to its broad range of potential benefits and the positive effects it can have on your lifestyle. The compound cannabidiol can be used for managing the stresses of everyday life and promoting a general sense of wellbeing.
How is CBD Isolate Made?
CBD Isolate comes in powdered form that can be mixed with liquids, carrier oils, or added to other products. If used in powder form it is recommended that you use scales to weigh out the amount. The powder form makes each dose totally customizable, depending on the concentration you can add as much or as little as you would like.
It takes an army of cannabinoids, terpenes and micro-cannabinoids to give CBD extracts its broad spectrum of benefits. When these other cannabinoids are removed, it has been observed that CBD doesn’t work as effectively in some cases when the extract isn’t full spectrum.
The main advantage of using isolate is its versatility. It can be used to make tinctures, oil infusions, topicals, and much more. Isolate has none of the psychoactive effects of THC (which causes a high), thereby making it suitable for children and pets too.
CBD Isolate is 99% pure Cannabidiol derived entirely from hemp oil that was extracted from industrial hemp. Our isolate comes in crystalline (powdered) form making it extremely easy to work with as an ingredient.
CBD isolate has already been activated (decarboxylated), which means that it doesn’t need to be heated prior to use. This gives isolate more versatility than other CBD extracts. CBD Isolate can be ingested, taken sublingually, or mixed with other ingredients.
