If you want to learn about CBD isolate and how to use it, this guide is just what you need!

Cannabidiol, or CBD, has gained immense popularity among health-conscious individuals looking for alternate ways to manage symptoms of pain, anxiety, cognitive issues, and much more. And its non-psychoactive nature has added to its acceptance among the community.

Despite limited research about the efficacy of CBD, enough scientific evidence is available to affirm its health-enhancing potential.

Although CBD isolate differs from the more common CBD products you might have heard of (capsules, gummies, tinctures), this crystalline powder is the purest form of CBD.

So, what is CBD isolate, and how do you use it? Read on to find out!

What is CBD Isolate?

As mentioned above, CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD in the form of a crystalline powder. In certain cases, it is as pure as 99 percent! It is obtained after removing all additional (useful and harmful) components from the hemp plant, i.e., chlorophyll, oils, waxes, other phytocannabinoids (e.g., THC), pesticides, contaminants, and heavy metals.

This crystalline powder is available in four types or forms:

  1. Powder
  • Liquid
  • Terpsolate – a product with hemp- or marijuana-derived terpenes added back to the isolate for aroma and additional therapeutic benefits.
  • Slab – isolate obtained from full-spectrum CBD that is broken down into chunks mainly for ease in vaping or dabbing.

How Do You Use CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is extremely versatile, with countless ways to use it. Here are some of the most common methods of using this pure CBD powder.

·       Sublingually (under the tongue)

Take a calculated amount of CBD powder and place it under your tongue. Hold it there for at least a minute before swallowing. The powder is usually tasteless.

This method is extremely effective because CBD is readily absorbed through the mucous membranes underneath the tongue directly into the bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system and liver produces immediate and more effective relief.

·       Topically

Mix CBD isolates with a high-fat carrier oil such as MCT oil, olive oil, or hemp seed oil and apply it directly onto the skin. You can also add the powder to the topical you most commonly use.

With this method, you can boost your favorite topical product and enjoy the extra kick of CBD while maintaining control over the dosage. In addition, you can develop your own CBD isolate-inspired topical lotions, creams, and salves.

·       Orally (Capsules)

Carefully measure your routine dose of CBD and insert the isolate into capsules. Store them in a sealed container in a cool and dry place.

This option works well for people who need to add CBD to their daily routines. Moreover, if you have CBD isolate in bulk, this method is by far the most economical.

·       Infused into Foods and/or Beverages

Before infusing foods or drinks with CBD isolate, we suggest mixing it with a carrier oil to enhance its bioavailability and improve its absorption into the gastrointestinal system and the bloodstream.

You can add CBD isolate to juices, smoothies, coffee, tea, sauces, soups, and salad dressings. For hot beverages, remember not to heat the isolate too much; otherwise, it might lose its potency.

You can also create your own CBD isolate sweetener by mixing the powder with syrup, honey, or stevia.

·       Added to Hemp Flower

You can roll the crystalline powder into a hemp flower for a higher dose of CBD.

Due to its purity, isolates don’t produce an entourage effect; however, when combined with hemp flower, which naturally contains an extremely high dosage of CBD and other beneficial compounds, including fatty acids, terpenes, flavonoids, etc., this method will also provide an entourage effect.

·       Vaping or Dabbing

The good news is that vaping CBD isolate will not make you high, but you can enjoy its effects rapidly.

You can mix the isolate with terpenes to develop a homemade CBD concentrate or dab it via a dry herb vaporizer or concentrate vaporizer.

What Dose of CBD Isolate Should You Take?

Everyone is different regarding metabolism, tolerance, sensitivity to CBD, etc. Hence, the dosage of effective CBD is different for everybody.

The rule of thumb for using CBD is to start at the lowest dosage and gradually increase its amount once you feel its effects. For example, a recommended starting dosage is 10 mg, whereas more experienced users can consume up to 50 mg per dose.

Final Thoughts

CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD and can be consumed in various forms – sublingually, topically, orally, and through vapes and dabs. However, before using CBD, always consult your physician, especially if you’re already on medications or suffer from health issues.
