As you probably know, products made from hemp can contain very small traces of THC. Up to 0.2% THC is allowed because that is the amount present in the plant. However, these small amounts of THC will not affect you in any way. However, if you are still worried, there is one way to enjoy CBD without any other compounds in the cannabis plant, which is called CBD isolate. Let’s take a closer look at this interesting form of CBD.
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is a pure crystalline powder containing only the CBD molecule isolated from the hemp plant (cannabis). All other compounds in the biomass, such as oils, chlorophyll, terpenes, other cannabinoids, are removed during processing.
How is CBD isolate produced?
CBD isolate is produced using purification methods. These processes remove all the terpenes that are responsible for the smell, taste and other distinguishing characteristics. Purification processes also separate unwanted cannabinoids, such as the most well-known psychoactive cannabinoid, THC. Finally, these processes remove all plant material. Finally, pure, isolated CBD remains.
The benefits of CBD isolate
Firstly, the most obvious advantage is that it is completely free of THC. This way, you can experience pure CBD. Secondly, you can consume this crystalline powder in a variety of ways as long as you respect the regulatory status of CBD in your country. Thirdly, it is easier to measure. Since it contains absolutely no other compounds, you know exactly how much CBD you have, and there is no need to make any calculations. In other CBD products, such as full-spectrum oils, active creams or skincare products, the cannabinoid is mixed with other ingredients.
CBD isolate products
- Mostly, CBD isolates are produce in crystalline powders from CBD and CBG. Both are isolated from the highest quality hemp extract.
- CBD crystalline powder is 99.6% isolated cannabidiol (CBD) produced and purified from hemp extract, which is further processed to produce a phytosolate.
- CBG crystalline powder is isolated cannabigerol (CBG) produced and purified from hemp extract, which is further processed to produce a phytoisolate.
In summary, CBD isolates or CBD crystalline powder is the purest form of CBD available on the market. If you are a CBD novice or a regular user and have not tried it yet, we suggest you give isolated CBD a chance.
Make sure you choose the right company when buying CBD crystal powder. Look for verified products and quality certificates. Most CBD isolates manufacturers have their own in-house laboratory accredited to ISO 17025 and are officially certified as a company with good manufacturing practices to the global ISO 22716 standard.
