What is CBD Isolate?
CBD, the more common name for cannabidiol, is the naturally-occurring compound found in the hemp plant which provides a vast array of purported medicinal and therapeutic effects to users. CBD isolate is the pure, crystalline form of the cannabidiol, which is 99 percent pure. What this essentially means is that, unlike other cannabidiol-based products, all plant matter, which includes the chlorophyll, oils, waxes, and any other unwanted hemp plant derivatives, are removed.
Obtaining CBD from the hemp plant requires extraction. While this extraction process is complex, getting the isolate is even more difficult. This process includes not only the obtaining of the cannabidiol but also the filtration to remove all plant materials. Once this excess material is filtered, the CBD undergoes a “winterization” process, which involves an alcohol wash freezing the CBD and helping to further extract the cannabidiols from the terpenes. This process also removes any additional waxes or other materials left behind after the filtration process, leaving a pure, crystalline CBD isolate.
The Benefits of CBD Isolate
Due to the filtration process, the cannabidiol isolate is decarboxylated. Decarboxylation is the process in which a carbon atom is removed from a carbonic chain, resulting in the release of carbon dioxide. This process essentially converts inactive compounds found in the product into active compounds, unlocking the therapeutic effects of cannabidiol.
Heat is the active element in the decarboxylation process, but hotter is not necessarily better. Decarboxylating at lower temperatures takes longer, but these lower temperatures help perverse terpenes. These terpenes are responsible for the distinct aroma and flavor found in cannabis, but also provide therapeutic benefits to users on their own, and in union with cannabidiol.
Because it is already decarboxylated, there is no need to vape CBD isolate to receive the full benefits it offers. This benefit allows for the administration of the isolate in any number of ways.
