What is CBD Isolate? 

CBD isolate is essentially the purified form of hemp oil. Once all the other plant compounds are removed during the extraction process, all that’s left behind is potent, flavorless CBD.

The Top 5 Ways to Use CBD Isolates 

CBD isolate is the product of choice for those who want the many potential benefits of CBD, but don’t want a product that contains the trace amounts of THC found in full-spectrum products. Since CBD isolate is concentrated, a little goes a long way. Based on a recent survey done by CBDistillery™, here are the top 5 ways to use CBD isolate:

  • Make Your Own CBD Oil

    Based on 408 responses, 44% of the survey respondants use the 99% Pure CBD Isolate Powder to create their own CBD oil tinctures. When you create your own tincture, you have the freedom to choose flavors and carrier oils to suit your preferences.

Vapers who appreciate versatility enjoy adding CBD isolate to their favorite e-liquid or adding CBD isolate to increase the potency of their current CBD vape. Vaping CBD allows the cannabidiol to absorbed directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive processes that reduce bioavailability. While vaping is popular; it may not be right for everyone. For those who choose to skip the vapor, CBD isolate can be added to combustibles and inhaled with the smoke.

When you add CBD to your favorite recipes, you add the many potential health and wellness benefits without altering the flavor or aroma of your foods.

The Big Questions About CBD Isolate

CBD works by mimicking the messengers and influencing the receptors of the endocannabinoid system. By supporting the functions of this regulatory system, CBD is shown to provide numerous potential health and wellness benefits. Since CBD originates from hemp we find that people tend to have a lot of questions. Here’s a quick look at some of the most common questions asked about CBD Isolate.

Will CBD Isolate Get You High?

CBD isolate will not get you high. CBD is just one of the many potentially beneficial cannabinoids found in hemp extract. It’s the cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that causes the psychoactive effects that marijuana is known for. Hemp CBD does not contain enough THC to cause any level of intoxication. When you opt to use a CBD isolate, even that insignificant amount of THC has been removed.


How Long Does CBD Isolate Take to Work?

The amount of time it can take to notice any effects from a CBD isolate depends on the delivery method. For example, it can take up to an hour to notice effects when CBD isolate is added to food, because the CBD enters your bloodstream through digestive processes. When CBD is vaped, the effects can commonly be felt quicker.


Is CBD Isolate Effective?

While CBD is just one of the many potentially beneficial cannabinoids in hemp oil, it’s the cannabinoid generating a significant amount of attention. According to lab tests, animal studies, and user testimonials, CBD is shown to provide numerous potential health and wellness benefits. When you purchase CBD isolate, you are investing in a super concentrated form of CBD. Over 94% of survey respondents found CBDistillery™’s CBD Isolate to be extremely, very or somewhat effective.


Can I Mix Hemp CBD isolate with THC Isolate?

The psychoactive component of marijuana (THC) can have some pretty unsavory side effects. Many people experience significant levels of cognitive impairment, paranoia, and heightened anxiety from THC. CBD is a THC antagonist. CBD isolate is shown to temper, or even neutralize the effects (depending on the mix ratio) of THC by blocking the binding action to CB1 receptors. Mixing hemp CBD isolate with THC isolate will potentially minimize the psychoactive effects without negating the therapeutic benefits of any products containing THC.



Common Forms of CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is an anhydrous product, like sugar. All the liquid has been removed. That means the resulting powder is particularly potent. CBD Isolate is commonly found in two forms. They are similar, but not the same. Consider the following:


  • CBD Isolate Crystals

    CBD crystals are less refined than isolate power. This crystalline product leans more towards sugar in texture and is the products most often used for vaping or smoking.


  • CBD Isolate Powder

    CBD Isolate powder has more of a finely milled texture that many people prefer for cooking, baking and formulating their own tinctures or topicals. Both products are equally effective and can be used in multiple ways.



Why Choose CBD Isolate?

CBD isolates are ideal for those searching for a potent, versatile product. CBD isolate products are often preferred by those who are uncomfortable ingesting even the trace amounts of THC found in full-spectrum products. Consider the following advantages:

  • Trace amounts of THC are potentially removed

  • No noticeable flavor to interfere with the enjoyment of your food

  • No odor of the original plant source

  • Can be used to intensify the CBD content of other products
