About CBD

What is CBD isolate?

CBD isolate is a highly purified form of cannabidiol (CBD) that contains no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or plant matter. Unlike full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD products, which include a range of compounds from the hemp plant, CBD isolate is 99% pure CBD.

This high purity level is achieved through processes that remove all other plant materials and compounds, resulting in a crystalline powder or solid substance. CBD isolate is ideal for those seeking the benefits of CBD without the presence of THC or other cannabinoids, making it a popular choice for individuals needing precise control over their CBD intake.

How is CBD isolate made?

The production of CBD isolate involves several key steps:

  1. Extraction: The first step is extracting CBD from hemp. This is typically done using either CO2 or ethanol extraction methods. CO2 extraction uses carbon dioxide at high pressure and low temperature to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material. Ethanol extraction uses high-grade alcohol to separate CBD from the hemp plant. Both methods are effective, but CO2 extraction is considered more precise and yields a purer product.
  2. Winterization: After extraction, the CBD oil undergoes a process called winterization. This involves mixing the oil with alcohol and freezing it. This step removes unwanted components like fats, waxes, and chlorophyll, leaving behind a purer CBD extract.
  3. Filtration and decarboxylation: The mixture is then filtered to remove any remaining impurities. The final step involves heating the mixture to activate the CBD (a process known as decarboxylation), converting it into its active form.
  4. Crystallization: The purified extract is further refined through a process that isolates CBD crystals. These crystals are then broken down into a fine powder, resulting in CBD isolate.

Uses and benefits of CBD isolate

  1. Versatility: CBD isolate is incredibly versatile. It can be used to make tinctures, edibles, topicals, and even vapes. Because it is flavorless and odorless, it can be added to various products without altering their taste or smell.
  2. Precision in dosing: With CBD isolate, users can have precise control over their dosage. This is particularly useful in creating custom CBD-infused products, such as tinctures and topicals. For instance, mixing CBD isolate with a carrier oil like MCT or coconut oil can create a potent CBD oil that can be used sublingually or in cooking.
  3. Lack of THC: One of the significant benefits of CBD isolate is that it contains no THC, the psychoactive component of cannabis. This makes it an excellent choice for individuals who need to avoid THC for personal or professional reasons, such as athletes or those subject to regular drug testing.
  4. Therapeutic effects: Despite being pure CBD, isolate still offers many of the therapeutic benefits associated with CBD, including potential relief from pain, anxiety, and inflammation. However, it does not provide the entourage effect, which is the synergistic benefit derived from the combination of cannabinoids and terpenes found in full-spectrum CBD products.
