Questions about CBD and Hemp

What is CBD isolate?

Simply put, isolate is CBD in its purest, most effective form. All plant matter contained in the hemp plant is removed, leaving a finished product that is 99% pure CBD and nothing more.

How is CBD isolate made?

Our process starts with growing certified organic non-gmo hemp until the plant reaches maturity. It is then it’s harvested and goes through the extraction process which separates the cannabinoids, terpenes, trichomes, flavonoids, and other chemicals from the plant matter. Our Isolate is made through CO2 extraction because it is non-toxic and non-flammable. CO2 extraction is the preferred method over chemical solvents like butane, hexane, and acetone, which can linger in the extracted oil if not purged correctly, rendering the oil toxic.

 

 

 

At the end of the extraction process, you’re left with a cannabis concentrate. Depending on the form in which you choose to keep the concentrate (e.g., solid, semi-solid, liquid), you can then make things like shatter, wax, oil, etc. But to make CBD isolate, you’ll need to refine the concentrate a little bit more with a process called winterization.

Winterization is just a fancy science term for cooling down a chemical substance in order to remove impurities. So, in the case of CBD isolate, winterization removes excess waxes, as well as the terpenes, trichomes, and flavonoids.

As simple as the extraction and refining processes sound, they’re really not. Certain extraction methods can be done at home, but winterization is a bit more complicated than just storing your cannabis concentrate in the freezer for a few days. If you’re interested in trying CBD isolate for yourself, we highly recommend purchasing it rather than attempting to make it yourself.

Is CBD isolate right for me?

The only way to know if CBD isolate is right for you is to give it a try. CBD isolate can be taken in many different ways, which makes it incredibly versatile for those who need CBD’s medicinal properties at work or out in public. A small pinch in pretty much anything will give you the relief you need.

How do i use CBD isolate?

One of the greatest things about CBD isolate is that it’s super easy to use. Here’s a list of strategies to help you put your CBD isolate to work.

 

Eat It

CBD isolate powder can be added to anything you can eat. Mix it into brownies, cookies, pies, and other baked goods. Dissolve a bit in your favourite oil or salad dressing. Sprinkle it on top of your meal. Add a teaspoon to your tea or coffee. The possibilities are endless and are limited only by your imagination.

Dab It

You can dab CBD isolate by itself or mix with other concentrates to give your dabs a smooth cherry flavor.

Smoke It

Sprinkle a pinch of CBD isolate over your favorite strains for a CBD kick that can’t be beat.

Vaporize It

Mix a small amount of CBD isolate into your favorite vape oil product or e-liquid for a healthy boost.

Make Your Own Tincture

Add a small amount of CBD isolate to a teaspoon of coconut oil, and hold it under your tongue for a minute and a half. The oil and CBD isolate enter your bloodstream through the sublingual artery. Tinctures are the easiest and most discreet method for consuming CBD.

Add to skin care products

CBD isolate can be whipped into your favorite body or face cream. You can maximize CBD’s anti-inflammatory and pain-reduction properties by rubbing the cream into your skin.

Will CBD isolate get me high?

The short answer is no. CBD isolate is created from high CBD, low THC hemp strains, which go through an extensive process to isolate the CBD. The percentage of THC in CBD isolate is less than 0.02% so it would be next to impossible to consume an amount where you would feel any effects from the THC. A tiny percentage of THC is necessary for CBD products for them to be effective in the endocannabinoid system.

What is the recommended dose?

For new users, we recommend starting with 5-10mg and slowly increasing to find a dose that works best for you. For high pain patients, we recommend a 25-50mg dose. Everyone’s body is different, and the best dose for you will be different than others’. Go low and slow to find what amount works best for your body. If you have more questions about the best dose for you please feel free to contact us.

What is the difference between crystal (pharmaceutical) and powder (nutraceutical)?

Although they are interchangeable, crystal CBD isolate is the less refined form of the two. Both testing at 99.9% CBD the only real differences are the look and the ease of product creation. Crystal has a stronger cherry taste which CBD is famous for, this is why we recommend pharmaceutical for personal users as it adds more flavour to your vape, dabs, and has a smoother smoke. We recommend the powder if you are interested in creating your own CBD products because it is much more versatile in the production process. Nutraceutical powder is also great to dab,vape, and mix with concentrates.
