CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is essentially a powder that contains 99% pure CBD. An extraction process removes active compounds traditionally found in the cannabis plant, before a refinement and winterization process strips away all the harmful nasties such as THC and plant matter. What is left is CBD in its purest form with no other cannabinoids. CBD isolate white powder form is often described to have a sugar or crystal like appearance. Due to its pureness, CBD isolate has many uses. Some people choose to use isolate as a base to make their own CBD products at home, whilst others choose to take CBD isolate as a sublingual.

What Is CBD?

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is one of over 100 different naturally occurring substances found within the cannabis sativa plant which are known collectively as cannabinoids. CBD products are legal in the UK as long as they contain less than 0.2% THC. THC is another naturally occurring cannabinoid within the cannabis plant, although it differs from CBD in that it is psychoactive and causes users to experience a high. As CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD, it contains zero THC meaning there is no risk of becoming high or any THC entering your system. The health benefits of CBD are yet to be fully understood given that research is still in its early stages, although it has become increasingly popular in the past few years.

How Is CBD Isolate Made?

Like with any other CBD product, the first step in producing CBD isolate is the process of extracting CBD from the hemp plant. Following this, a refinement and purification process then strips away all of the harmful plant matter and THC. Finally, a winterization process then removes the waxes and any other remaining impurities from the plant to leave only CBD in its purest form.

How Do I Use CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is extremely versatile and there are many different ways it can be used. One of the most favoured methods for using it is to create a base to a CBD cream or topical. Other popular methods include taking it sublingually in its powder form, mixing it with a carrier oil to create CBD oils or CBD vape oil, or using it to create CBD edibles.

How Much CBD Isolate Should I Use?

Given that there are a number of different ways you can use CBD isolate it is very hard to recommend how much you should use as it will differ. However, we strongly recommend that you do not use more than 70mg of CBD per day. Given that CBD isolate is extremely potent we recommend you start slow with a small amount of isolate. If you feel you need more then you can take more the next time you use it. If you are using CBD isolate to make a cream, CBD oil or edible then the best way to know how much to use is to follow a reputable and trusted guide online.

You’ll need very little amounts of isolate to feel the effects compared to other CBD products, and it’s also extremely fast acting in comparison.

Is CBD Isolate Addictive?

No, CBD isolate is not addictive as CBD is a non-addictive substance. You can therefore use it freely and not become addicted. The addictive part of the cannabis plant is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
