CBD Isolate is a fine, white crystalline powder, consisting of scientifically pure cannabidiol (99% pure CBD) and is often referred to as CBD, for short. CBD is one of the therapeutically active ingredients found within the leaves of the Cannabis plant. While marijuana’s history includes extensive use by physicians as a pain relief agent, the use of the plant’s extract, CBD, is relatively new by comparison.
Today, CBD is extracted from the marijuana plant’s leaves and used to treat chronic conditions such as anxiety, arthritis, eczema, and psoriasis, as well as multiple other ailments not listed here. It is a known anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety treatment and does not cause impairment.
Use of CBD Isolate can be confusing for first time CBD users as there are multiple ways to consume or ingest it. Therefore, we have compiled the most common ways our clients choose to reap the benefits of our quality pure CBD isolate.
Consume CBD Isolate Sublingually
Placing a dose of the CBD isolate directly under the tongue, also known as sublingual consumption, is one of the easiest and most accurate methods of introducing CBD Isolate into the body.
To consume CBD isolate sublingually, simply scoop your preferred dose using a measuring spoon (all of our CBD isolate come supplied with a measuring spoon) and place the isolate under your tongue. Allow the isolate to sit underneath your tongue (no swallowing or swishing!) for 30 – 60 seconds. During that time the isolate will dissolve and enter your bloodstream, providing you with rapid relief from the ailments you’re treating.
Benefits of sublingual consumption of CBD Isolate:
- Accurate measurement of CBD Isolate, ideal when determining your preferred dose.
- Easy to consume and no special equipment or recipe is required.
- Rapid relief as the sublingual method enables CBD to enter the bloodstream quickly.
Apply CBD Isolate Topically
Topical applications of CBD isolate are good options to ease discomfort from conditions that affect the skin and underlying tissues. Symptoms from conditions like eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, and even arthritis, are often treated using a CBD isolate containing product. Salves, balms, ointments, lotions, and massage oils are commonly relied upon by those using CBD topically.
Once the CBD Isolate has been made into your topical of choice, simply use it as you would any other topical! Lotions, creams, salves can be applied directly to the affected areas and gently rubbed in. As the product is absorbed into the skin the CBD molecules will bind to the cannabinoid receptors in the skin and get to work relieving you of your discomfort.
