CBD Isolates and How to Use Them
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is a crystal-like powder that’s 99% pure CBD. Hemp plant matter is extracted, just like any other CBD extract product, but can be refined and filtered down to create fine, white powder made up of 99% CBD. This powder can be used in a variety of ways.
There is Zero THC in CBD Isolate
Most CBD products still contain trace amounts of THC, and can still be legally sold as long as it is less than a certain threshold. CBD isolate is a perfect solution for those sensitive to THC or concerned with THC showing up in their system when tested.
How do you use CBD isolate?
One of the strengths of CBD isolate is its versatility and ease of use. Because it’s a tasteless and odorless powder, it can be used in food and beverages, mixed into vape juice, or even just taken directly.
Directly Under Your Tongue
This is by far, the easiest method of consuming CBD isolates.
Place a small dosage under your tongue and hold it there for 60 seconds. With no taste or odor this should not be unpleasant.
Create Your Own Tinctures
You can mix CBD isolate into other oils (such as MCT oil or coconut oil) to create your own CBD oil.
This can be used for cooking but watch out because CBD loses its potency when heated above 400 degrees.
Mix it into Beverages
From juice to smoothies, or even coffee and tea, you can add CBD isolate to any liquid. This makes it easy to add CBD isolate with your normal daily routine.
How much CBD isolate should I take?
The FDA has not yet created a Recommended Daily Intake value for CBD products. There is no standard daily dosage, however many users set a starting dosage of 30-50mg per serving. Because it’s so pure, a 1g jar of CBD isolate contains 990mg of Cannabidiol (CBD). Doing some quick math, that means a 1g jar contains somewhere between 20-30 servings.
To accurately measure CBD isolate servings, it’s best to use a scale that measures small weights in milligrams. You can also purchase 10mg scoops online, allowing you accurate use of CBD isolate without having to use a scale.
