What is CBD Isolate?

CBD (also known as Cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive extract from the cannabis plant. CBD Isolate is a form of CBD which does not contain any THC. CBD Isolate is one of the three types of CBD which are extracted from the cannabis plant.

CBD Isolate Definition

Which Products Have CBD Isolate?

Products containing CBD Isolate are:

  • CBD Gummies – These are chewy and small candies that usually come in fruity flavours. These gummies have CBD in them. These are edible types of products. Ingesting CBD in edible forms like gummies usually means that its effects will manifest slower.
  • CBD Oil – CBD Isolate also comes in oil form.
  • CBD Cream – CBD Cream is applied topically and absorbed by the skin. Due to their topical nature, they do not permeate into the lower layers beyond the epidermis. 

What are the Best CBD Isolate Products?

The best CBD Isolate Products are:

  • Kanibi CBD Pure Isolate – Its potency is 750 mg per 1-oz. bottle. Kanibi CBD Pure Isolate does not contain THC. It is available in cinnamon, Skittles, and unflavored varieties. 
  • Medterra CBD+ Manuka Honey Healing Cream – Although it is on the pricier side, Medterra CBD+ Manuka Honey Healing Cream is our top pick. Its formulation uses Manuka honey from New Zealand and their ingredients include arnica, aloe, and various nourishing plant oils.

What are the Usage Methods of CBD Isolate?

The usage methods of CBD Isolate are:

  • Oral usage – This method means ingesting edible CBD products such as gummies or consuming CBD oil orally with the use of a dropper. According to Healthline.com, the standard dosage is 5 milligrams (mg) per gummy, while tinctures and oils contain about 1 mg per drop. 
  • Topical usage – CBD Isolates come in the form of topical oils, creams, and lotions. Topical CBD is only absorbed by the topmost layer of the skin. For topical usage, you apply your CBD topical product on your skin. Since the product is topical and in cream form, we recommend a pea-sized amount. 
  • Vaporization – For quick effects, you can ingest your CBD Isolate through inhalation. This usage method is risky, as it can give you lung cancer. According to Martin A. Lee, Project CBD founder, the recommended dose of CBD for first-timers is 25 milligrams. Experts also advise to start in small dosages and it will be up to you whether to increase or reduce your CBD intake. 

How is CBD Isolate Obtained?

CBD Isolate is obtained by the following steps:

  • First, it will be extracted from the cannabis plant. The compounds needed to produce CBD Isolate will be taken away from the plant. After the CBD is extracted, it will be purified for a period of time, with the chemical compounds needed to create CBD Isolate filtered out of the cannabis that’s extracted from the plant.
  • Second,  the CBD oil removed from the cannabis plant undergoes winterization. Winterization is a process where any remaining plant particles are removed from the CBD oil. As the product is CBD Isolate, any waxes or other unneeded components (like terpenes, chlorophyll and/or flavonoids) remaining in the CBD will be stripped off. 
  • After the waxes and other components have been stripped off, the product will be pure CBD powder, which has no levels of THC and is at a level that is 99% pure cannabidiol. The manufacturer can: either produce CBD Isolate as a pure powder or turn it into a crystal isolate.

Where Can You Buy CBD Isolate?

You can buy CBD Isolate near you through larger health food stores, which usually retail CBD. You can also choose to buy your CBD Isolate online, as online retailers will provide third-party lab results and COAs to their customers. A factor in the availability of CBD near you is its regulation. The current status quo is that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate CBD products. 

What are the Other Types of CBD?

The other types of CBD are:

  • Full-spectrum CBD – This type of CBD contains small amounts of other THC, as well as flavonoids and terpenes, which are beneficial compounds that provide unique scents and flavors. A benefit full-spectrum CBD has over CBD Isolates is that due to its THC content, it may reduce inflammation and offer better neuroprotective effects, especially when taking CBD and THC together. Its weak side is that full-spectrum CBD can show up on drug tests and its THC, no matter how small the amount is, can  cause an impairing effect.
  • Broad spectrum CBD – Broad-spectrum CBD contains several cannabis plant compounds, but it is typically entirely free of THC. The difference between the broad spectrum CBD and full-spectrum CBD are the compounds they contain. Its strengths are that it is antibiotic, anti-seizure and lastly, anti-inflammatory. A drawback to broad spectrum CBD is that if you use it on its own, you will miss out on optimizing its effects; you can only optimize its effect if you ingest it with THC.
