CBD products are everywhere! We see CBD oil in beauty products, food products, lotions, and creams. And every day, more and more people are jumping on the CBD train because of the numerous health and wellness benefits it brings. But, some people may hesitate to try CBD products when they hear they may contain even the smallest trace of THC. While CBD oil does not have the same psychoactive effects as THC, many of the full-spectrum CBD oils contain small amounts of THC.
Pure CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD and provides people a way of receiving the benefits of cannabinoids without even the slightest bit of THC. It is CBD in its purest form and does not contain any of the other parts of the hemp plant.
So, what is CBD Isolate Exactly?
Pure CBD isolate is a crystalline solid or powder that contains pure CBD. To make it, the CBD goes through a refining process after it is extracted from the hemp plant to remove all other phytocannabinoids like THC. So, the only thing left is the CBD compound in its purest form. Unlike full or broad-spectrum CBD oil, pure CBD isolate does not have a smell or taste.
What are the Benefits of Pure CBD Isolate?
While CBD isolate may not seem as fancy as other CBD oil products that have tastes and smells or are in lotion form, don’t let its simplicity fool you. There are several benefits of CBD isolate that we can get excited about! One of the leading benefits of CBD isolate is that it does not contain any THC. So, anyone who is concerned about having even the smallest amount of THC enter their body, this is the route to go!
Are there Disadvantages to Using CBD Isolate Instead of Full-Spectrum CBD?
Research has proven that when cannabinoids are combined with other natural compounds found in the hemp plant, particularly terpenes, it creates what is called the entourage effect, which is a synergistic interaction that enhances the effects of each individual compound. So, when you strip away the other compounds and only have CBD isolate, you may not experience the full benefits of the effects.
How to Use CBD Isolate
When you get pure CBD isolate, it isn’t like other forms where you rub it on your pain point or ingest it as an edible. But, there are a few ways to consume it.
- Put the isolate directly under your tongue and keep it there for about one minute. This is one of the fastest ways to feel the effects because the CBD is absorbed into the mucous membranes and reaches the bloodstream immediately. You will feel the effects quicker by doing it this way as opposed to putting in in your food and having to wait for it to be digested and absorbed.
- You can mix the CBD isolate with your favourite lotion or serum and apply it directly to the skin where you need relief.
- You can make your own CBD isolate capsules and ingest them or you can add it to your food or drinks. This takes the longest to feel the effects, however, because it has to go through the digestion process.
- You can also vape or dab pure CBD isolate.
