CBD isolate is the purest form of cannabidiol available. To make Isolate, CBD oil is CO2 extracted from Hemp in the same way as it is for our other CBD products. It then goes through further filtration to remove plant material and “winterisation” which removes waxes, chlorophyll, terpenes, trichomes, and flavonoids still present in the CBD oil. The result is a fine white powder that is 99.9% pure CBD.
Isolate CBD powder is very versatile, allowing you to choose just the right way to use CBD. Because CBD Isolate is so pure it is easy to understand how much CBD is being used. Each 1mg of isolate contains 1mg of CBD (less a fraction of a percent lost in filtration).
How to use CBD Isolate
Super-pure and soluble in water or oil there are many options for how to use CBD Isolate.
1. Use CBD Isolate neat
CBD isolate can be used straight away with no further preparation. Just measure out the amount you require and use it as it is. The powder is readily soluble and quickly absorbed.
2. Dissolve CBD Isolate in oil or water based liquids
CBD powder readily dissolves in both oil and water based liquids and semi-solids. It is important, though, not to heat the CBD above 65ºC as this makes changes that affect is potency. If you choose to add it to warm liquids make sure they have cooled a little first, and don’t heat it at high temperatures in other circumstances.
3. Make your own CBD preparations
The only limit for combining CBD Isolate with your favoured preparations is your imagination. Carrier oils such as olive oil, grapeseed oil and MCT (fractionated coconut oil) are each valued for their own benefits, and can be purchased from Purelife. Information on their properties can be found in their product listings. CBD Isolate can also be added to coconut oil or Aloe Vera gel. Why not add CBD Isolate to a sweet almond oil base then add a few drops of essential oil, such as lavender oil to aid relaxation or peppermint for concentration and focus. Please be sure to check any essential oils or carrier oils you use with CBD Isolate are suitable for your intended uses.
A wide range of carrier oils and essential oils are available from Purelife.
CBD Oil vs Isolate
The important difference between CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum CBD products is the pureness of isolate as a CBD-only product. For some users the absolute absence of residual THC is vitally important, but in practice there is no perceptible THC in any of Purelife’s CBD products, as shown in our label test reports.
With Isolate it is easy to determine dosages and it can easily be added to other substances to make customised CBD preparations.
Full spectrum CBD products such as CBD in Virgin Hemp oil, CBD in MCT, CBD vape oil, CBD Capsules, Balm and Gummy bears contain not only CBD but other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and vitamins that in some circumstances work together to enhance the effect of the CBD. Some full spectrum products have a strong taste. CBD Isolate contains nothing but CBD.
Both CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum products are effective so the choice is yours – whether to try the entourage effect of combined plant extracts working together in Full Spectrum products or enjoy the flexibility offered by CBD Isolate.
CBD Isolate use
CBD Isolate can not be sold as a food supplement in the UK. For other CBD products UK guidance for non-medically-licenced CBD use is a dose of less than 200mg CBD per day. CBD is not suitable for pregnant women or nursing mothers and should be kept safe from children and pets.
