HOW TO USE CBD ISOLATE

As cannabidiol products continue to gain global recognition, the masses are starting to realize the incredible benefits associated with the regular intake of CBD isolate products. The article below delves into CBD isolate and the various ways one can use it.

CBD isolate is a type of CBD derived from the hemp plant, which unlike other forms of CBD, does not contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD isolate assumes a crystal-like powdery appearance that contains pure CBD. It is sourced from the hemp plant and devoid of substances and impurities like heavy metals and pesticides. CBD isolate is an ideal option for individuals who are beginners in the CBD arena and are wary of THC or any other impurities that some cannabidiol brands may have.

HOW TO USE CBD ISOLATE

According to Nassief (2021), CBD isolate undergoes decarboxylation during the processing stage. A process that activates CBD means that it does not have to undergo heating before use. The decarboxylation process allows CBD isolate to be highly versatile compared to other CBD extracts like full spectrum CBD and broad-spectrum CBD. Below are some of the ways that individuals can ingest CBD isolate products;

SUBLINGUALLY

Sublingual intake of a substance involves inserting a drug beneath the tongue, where it is dispersed into the blood through the tissue membranes present in the region. Sublingual drug intake is one of the preferred modes of drug intake because it reaches the system quickly, leading to faster reactions. Additionally, it is a feasible mode of drug intake for individuals who have a problem ingesting pills. Ingesting CBD isolate products sublingually ensures that it reaches the bloodstream quickly since it circumvents the liver and the digestive system for efficient relief.

INGESTING

Ardent cannabidiol fans prefer suspending soluble CBD isolate products into an array of foods, drinks, and baked goods like pies, brownies, and cookies. CBD isolate can also be measured and packed in pills or capsules, allowing individuals to ingest an exact dosage over time. CBD can also be used as an add-in to dressings, sauces, stir-fries, and soups. However, it is vital to note that overheating a CBD isolate product will make it lose its potency.

INHALING

CBD isolate can be merged with terpenes to formulate domestic CBD concentrates for easier vaping and dabbing. It is also possible to make CBD isolate into crystals that can be dabbed using a dab rig. Additionally, CBD isolate can be added to a vape juice, which is also one of the most recommended and easiest ways of ingesting CBD isolate. A vape juice makes it easy to measure the amount of CBD intake per vape session. Moreover, vaping CBD isolate is an ideal option for frequent users of e-cigarettes.

MIXING

One can mix CBD isolate with a carrier oil like MCT oil, olive oil, or coconut oil to formulate a CBD oil tincture. Another recommended way of using CBD isolate is merging it with an e-juice and vaping it. Brave (2019) explained that for topical use of CBD, one could mix it with moisturizing oils since it has moisturizing effects when applied directly to the skin. Individuals who may feel the need to make their own CBD gummies or CBD products should mix the CBD isolate with organic honey or stevia. The end product can also be poured onto pancakes for added health benefits.

INDUSTRIAL USE OF CBD ISOLATE

According to Datta, Mohi & Chander (2018), most states globally are slowly setting up laws that permit the sale, possession, manufacture, and use of CBD products as long as they contain less than 0.3% of THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the main active ingredient of cannabis. There are a string of products in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry that are infused with CBD due to its benefits for the human body. A good example of a cannabinoid drug used in the pharmaceutical industry is Epidiolex, which is used to combat seizures allied to Dravet syndrome, tuberous sclerosis, and Gastaut syndrome. Some cosmetology products are also infused with CBD since its ingredients may help get rid of dry patches and moisturize the skin. The industrial use of CBD isolates products showcases that it is highly versatile since it can be used in several ways to benefit the human body.

TYPES OF CBD ISOLATE

CBD ISOLATE LIQUID

CBD isolate liquid is a convenient form of CBD isolate since it is easy to consume. It can also be incorporated into any beverage or food. The only disadvantage of CBD liquid is that it is incompatible with vape pens.

SLAB

A slab is the end product of full-spectrum extract after CBD has been isolated from it. The slab is then integrated into small chunky pieces for easier dabbing or vaping.

THE SAFETY OF CBD ISOLATE

According to Lachenmeier et al. (2019), advanced technological hemp plant extraction results in high-grade CBD isolate. There might be traces of other chemicals in the final product, albeit in trace amounts. It is vital to note that CBD isolate products do not contain THC. THC is eradicated during the extraction process, and only CBD is left. Therefore, a consumer cannot get high from ingesting CBD isolate since it is devoid of substances and impurities.

CBD isolate, as is the case with other cannabinoids, is not soluble in water but is soluble in fats. However, this can be overcome by adding fat or oil of choice while preparing a homemade CBD isolate. However, there are also CBD isolate products soluble in water, which eradicate the stress of adding oils or fats.

PRODUCTION OF CBD ISOLATE

Like other cannabidiol products like CBD distillate, CBD extract, and CBD oil, CBD isolate is extracted using the CO2 extraction method, also known as supercritical CO2 extraction. Carbon dioxide is used since it targets CBD content in the hemp plant. However, supercritical CO2 extraction tools are only used to produce lesser quantities of the targeted substance, CBD.

CONCLUSION

Most people are starting to understand the amazing advantages of regularly consuming CBD isolate products as cannabidiol products continue to gain popularity worldwide. In contrast to other forms of CBD, CBD isolate is extracted from the hemp plant and does not contain THC, otherwise known as tetrahydrocannabinol. Pure CBD is present in CBD isolate, which looks like a powdered crystal. Although it comes from the hemp plant, it is free of all chemicals and contaminants, including pesticides and heavy metals. For those who are new to the CBD market and are concerned about THC or any other contaminants that certain cannabidiol brands may have, CBD isolate is a great solution.

I am deeply convinced that each patient needs a unique, individual approach. Therefore, I use different psychotherapy methods in my work. During my studies, I discovered an in-depth interest in people as a whole and the belief in the inseparability of mind and body, and the importance of emotional health in physical health. In my spare time, I enjoy reading (a big fan of thrillers) and going on hikes.
