What Is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate powder

CBD isolate is the most potent and pure form of CBD (~99% CBD). CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder that contains 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate contains only CBD (cannabidiol) and is the result after removing all the rest of the plant matter contained in the hemp plant, including oils, waxes, chlorophyll, and other cannabinoids.

In order to get this ultra-pure form of isolated CBD, a purifying process follows the actual extraction process. This purification process includes filtration where all plant material is filtered out of the extract. Following filtration, the extracted oil goes through what’s known as a “winterization process” that further removes any waxes or other plant materials that were still present after filtration.

What you’re left with is a fine, white powder that is 99% pure CBD. 

Pure CBD isolate

While most people assume CBD doesn’t contain THC, there are still trace amounts found in CBD oil that is made using the entire hemp plant. This is known as full-spectrum CBD and can be sold legally as long as it contains less than 0.3% THC and derived from industrial hemp.

CBD isolate offers all the benefits of CBD without a trace of THC. 

Because CBD isolate doesn’t have any taste or odor and is oil soluble, you can use it in a variety of ways. CBD isolate can be taken orally, smoked, or combined with other oils and used on the skin as a moisturizer.
