With so many CBD products emerging and so many companies making them, how do you know if you are getting the right product? And how do you know if you are getting pure CBD oil? Is it even possible to make pure CBD oil?
The purest form of CBD is CBD isolate. It is pretty much just like it sounds… isolated CBD. In order to make it, the cannabis plant must go through several purification processes that strip away all the other compounds of the plant, leaving only CBD in its purest form.
Other forms of CBD oils, such as full and broad-spectrum CBD oil contain other parts of the hemp plant, that is why they aren’t considered 100 percent “pure.” CBD isolate has become popular among people who want the benefits of CBD and who do not want even the slightest amount of THC entering their body. While most people assume there is no THC in CBD oils, full spectrum CBD oil usually contains traces of THC in it.
How Do You Use CBD Isolate?
There are several ways to use CBD isolate, including:
- Put it under your tongue and let it dissolve. This is the easiest way to consume CBD isolate and the quickest way to get its effects as it goes right to the bloodstream. Because CBD isolate is free from terpenes and other compounds, it has no taste or smell so it’s super easy to take this way.
- Add it to your juice, coffee, or smoothie. Another super easy way to consume CBD isolate is to add it to your smoothie, juice or your morning cup of coffee. It will take longer for you to feel the effects when you take it this way because it must go through the digestive process, but it is a fun way to consume it.
- Add it to your cooking! More people are starting to cook with CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD because it is a fun way to get your cannabinoids in your daily diet. You can add it to your meals but be careful of heat. If you cook it too high, it can burn off the effects.
- Add it to your favourite lotion or body serum. If you want to make your own topical so you can rub it directly on your skin, add it to your lotion or favourite serum before you apply.
What is the Difference Between CBD Isolate and Full-Spectrum CBD?
The difference between CBD isolate and full-spectrum CBD is that CBD isolate is literally ONLY CBD. It has no smell, no taste and is straight up CBD in its pure form. Full-spectrum CBD, on the other hand, is CBD combined with other compounds found in the CBD plant, including terpenes which gives the hemp its unique smell and flavor. When the compounds are together, the benefits are enhanced. So, the only downfall to CBD isolates is the benefits aren’t as strong as they are with full spectrum CBD.
Another difference is that CBD isolate does not contain any THC, whereas most full spectrum CBDs can still contain trace amounts. While it is not enough to get you “high,” some people prefer isolates because they don’t have any THC at all.
