How to use CBD Isolate

How to use CBD Isolate

You might know what CBD isolate is, and even purchased your first batch, but lets walk through how to use it.

The Answer:

While you might not know exactly what to do with a pile of CBD isolate powder at first glance, CBD isolate can actually be used in a number of different ways. In fact, in addition to its purity, one of the best aspects of CBD isolate is its versatility. As we’ll discuss in more detail below, whether it’s sublingual administration or mixing it with food and drinks, this crystalline powdered CBD can be concocted into several different methods of consumption. Below, we’ve laid out the main ways in which a person could use CBD isolate in its various forms. They are as follows:

Inhalation

CBD isolate, if not already, can be mixed with terpenes to create homemade CBD concentrates that may be vaped or dabbed. The isolate could also be made into crystal slabs that can be dabbed on a traditional oil rig.

Ingestion

Manufacturers may produce CBD crystals in capsule or pill form, allowing you to ingest an accurate measured dose. You can also mix CBD isolate with a variety of ingredients to create CBD-infused food and drinks. It’s important to know that CBD is not absorbed very well by the digestive system. In order to increase bioavailability, CBD isolate can be added to carrier oils, such as coconut or olive oil, to increase its chances of permeating the gastrointestinal system and reaching the bloodstream.

Sublingual

To take CBD isolate sublingually, you can apply the CBD powder directly underneath your tongue and hold the CBD there for about a minute. In this method, the CBD is absorbed by the mucous membranes and delivered directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the digestive system and liver to provide more immediate and effective relief.

In general, taking CBD Isolate as a powder directly under the tongue might be the easiest and the most effective way of taking CBD Isolate. The product may be odorless and tasteless, although many users do mix it with liquids or food when they ingest CBD Isolate in order to make the taste pleasant.

Other Methods of Consumption

Manufacturers often mix CBD Isolate into a variety of products such as edible gummies, or creams that can be rubbed into the skin. This kind of topical application is however, less common when it comes to methods of consuming CBD isolate.

Ease of Use

It’s also incredibly easy to measure CBD isolate dosages, as there’s nothing else to account for aside from the pure CBD crystals. With other CBD-based products, such as broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD oil, the cannabinoid is mixed with other ingredients, making it more difficult to quantify the exact amount of CBD that is being consumed. This makes it much easier to figure out potential dosing amounts. Calculating the dosage levels with CBD Isolate is easy to do. Any small quality household scale should do. Because Isolate is separated from other compounds, measuring the dosage in milligrams gives you the exact amount of CBD you need, per the package directions.

By and large, for every one milligram of CBD powder, the consumer is ingesting one milligram of CBD. Dosage amounts do vary based on the consumer’s body weight and his or her other unique needs, it’s always best to start with a low dose of CBD Isolate at first under doctor supervision.

Typically you may feel the full effects of CBD isolate within 60 to 90 minutes of taking CBD Isolate orally, and within a 3-5 minutes of inhaling.

Potential Drawbacks to CBD Isolate

While CBD isolate may sound like the best approach for CBD use in some people, keep in mind that there are also a key disadvantages to isolating CBD from other cannabis compounds. The main one being that you lose what is known as the “entourage effect” when you sacrifice the other cannabinoids present in cannabis plants strictly for CBD.

However, this can still be a good thing for people who are looking to avoid THC. That said, it’s important to shop with a reputable company who can verify the content of their products with third party lab tests. It’s worth checking the package or bottle to make sure there is no THC in the CBD Isolate.

How to Make CBD Isolate

How to Make CBD Isolate

The Answer:

There are various processes that can be used to produce CBD isolate from CBD after it has been extracted from industrial hemp.

 

The same kinds of extraction methods, such as supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2) or ethanol-based extractions, can be used as a starting point for the production of CBD isolate in the same way they can be used to produce CBD oil and other CBD products.

 

However, CBD isolate must be further refined by separating from the rest of the extraction, which is done through a series of washing and separation processes.

A More In-Depth Look At How To Make CBD Isolate

Winterization effectively separates the lipids, waxes, and fats from the extract. This is also followed by a removal of impurities and unwanted plant particles. Then, these chemicals then need to be removed from the resulting extract. This is typically done with rotary evaporators and falling-film units. These devices utilize heat and pressure to carefully separate solvents from compounds like CBD.

 

Then the remaining cannabis compounds must be refined further through a method called preparative chromatography in which a special machine separates cannabinoids by putting them through various chemicals at different speeds.

Because additional chemicals are introduced in this process, they must then be removed again by a distillation process before the final product can be prepared for consumption. Once all of the impurities and solvents are stripped away, what’s left is 99% pure crystalline CBD.

How to Make CBD Oil or Topicals with Isolate

You could make your own CBD products at home using isolate by simply mixing CBD isolate with a carrier oil, such as coconut or olive oil, in order to make your own CBD oil. This will allow you to enjoy the convenience of more conventional CBD products in a potentially cost effective way. For CBD topicals, simply infuse the CBD isolate with any skin oil you like and apply as desired.

CBD Isolate Recipe

This article is for those that want to join us in the delicate art of CBD product creation. By purchasing premium industrial hemp isolate, you have unlocked the key to at home CBD oils, CBD edibles, and CBD topicals. Virtually any recipe that doesn’t boil is ripe for adding CBD!

The Idea:

Cooking with CBD isolate is easier than most people realize, and can be rewarding too.


Meals that were once boring can become inspired by you and suddenly become more interesting. You can turn any recipe into a cannabidiol recipe by simply using CBD isolate powder in a carrier oil and substituting that oil for the oil the recipe calls for. 


If you have ever used a double boiler, then you may be familiar with how to mix ingredients together in a way that uses less heat so they blend more evenly and do not burn. This kind of double boiling method is used to simply control the heat for ingredients you wouldn’t want to be exposed to high heat, such as cannabidiol. The double boiling method is important because it is you can turn pure CBD isolate powder into an ingredient that can be used in just about any recipe. When cooking with CBD isolate, you will always want to first infuse the CBD isolate with a carrier oil.

A Deeper Look into CBD Isolate Recipes

What is a Carrier Oil?

Simply put, a carrier oil, also known as a base oil, is a plant-derived oil which is used to “carry” essential oils and plant supplements like CBD. Essential oils and plant supplements can be overly potent or difficult for us to absorb directly, so carrier oils are used to help facilitate the process. Some carrier oils have different benefits can have different results depending on the different plants they are mixed with.

For example, unrefined coconut MCT oil provides better absorption of CBD than other carrier oils. MCT oil also happens to be one of the best carrier oils to use when cooking with CBD isolate because it is relatively tasteless.

You can experiment with different doses, but a good simple rule of thumb is that if you are cooking with one gram of CBD isolate powder, you’ll want to use 1-2 teaspoons of carrier oil.

When the water in your double boiler is boiling you will want to add your carrier oil and the isolate to the smaller inner pot for mixing. You will need to stir the mixture for about 10-15 minutes. Be sure to blend your isolate with the carrier oil well. Once it is fully mixed and of one consistency, turn off your boiler and allow it to fully cool. Once cooled pour your CBD infused carrier oil into a separate container for further use in cooking.

Another thing to keep in mind when cooking with CBD is the temperature. Higher temperatures can cause you to burn off the cannabidiol that you’re trying to infuse into your food. A good rule of thumb here is never cook CBD above 315 degrees F if you can help it. 

Below is a simple recipe for CBD infused guacamole, although this is just an example. You can use your CBD and carrier oil in any recipe that calls for oil by substituting it. 

Ingredients

Cilantro

Lime Juice

7 avocados (mashed)

½ diced onion (red)

1 tomato (diced)

3 jalapenos (diced)

3 serranos (diced)

4 cloves of garlic (diced)

Himalayan salt

Ground Black Pepper

½ gram CBD Isolate

1 tsp coconut MCT Oil

 

  1. Use the double boiling method to infuse CBD isolate with MCT oil
  2. Mix avocados, onions, tomato, garlic and peppers in a mixing bowl
  3. Add CBD infused MCT oil, lime juice, salt and pepper, mix well
  4. Check taste along the way as you go and make adjustments as needed.
  5. Once all the ingredients are mixed well your CBD guacamole is ready to eat.

What is CBD Water?

What is CBD Water?

CBD Water may sound basic, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some slight complexities to how it is produced. So what exactly is CBD water?

The Answer:

CBD water is a special form of water that has been mixed with a form of water soluble CBD. Water soluble CBD is made by dissolving CBD isolate or distillate into a colorless, flavorless, naturally-derived oil and then creating nanoscopic droplets of that oil with a high-pressure emulsifier. The result is a high-quality, stable additive with virtually no effect on the color, taste or mouthfeel. [1]  It is one of the newest forms to hit the market. Water soluble CBD uses special technology in order to increase bioavailability and blend with the water. The chemical compounds in water soluble CBD are broken down further in order to blend with the water in a way that regular CBD oil can’t. While it is becoming more widely available, this kind of CBD can still be harder to find, as CBD is typically in oil form, and does not mix well with water.

 

Water soluble CBD is quickly gaining popularity due to its convenience and benefits. After the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in the United States, industrial hemp products are popping up on store shelves across the country due to federal legalization.[2] As a result, CBD is being added to virtually every product one can imagine. So, It only makes sense that CBD Water is appearing on the scene.

CBD WATER FAQ

What Are the Benefits of CBD Water?

One of the main benefits of CBD water is that it can be rapidly absorbed compared to other CBD products, such as CBD edibles due to the nanoscopic size of the CBD molecules. Research on the effects of nanotechnology on CBD absorption is limited. However, one study found that lipid-based CBD nanoparticles may be better absorbed by your body. [3] When CBD is combined with antioxidants in the water, it not only provides you with the benefits of CBD, but can also give your immune system a boost. [4]

Anecdotal evidence from some people who have taken CBD water reported faster recovery time after injury when using CBD water. Additionally CBD is known to help relieve pain,[5] and CBD water is no exception. Also, it doesn’t intoxicate you and generally looks like regular water, so it’s a great and convenient way to get your daily dose of CBD anywhere you want to go. Studies regarding CBD tout its potential as an effective anti inflammatory [6] and an anti-anxiolytic as well. [7]

What Are the Concerns with CBD Water?

Generally speaking, once the useful limit of vitamins has been reached the rest go to waste. When an excessive level of vitamins are detected in the body, they get flushed out. Fortunately this should not occur with CBD water, however like with anything, it is good to avoid excessive consumption.

Because the body uses minerals and other chemicals in different ways, it can be difficult to entirely remove certain toxic build up If you consume too much of a specific item. Fortunately you will not have this problem with CBD or CBD water, however it is possible to build up a tolerance to CBD that will cause you to require more to achieve the same effect. [8] Building up a tolerance can also cause CBD to be less effective, so it’s wise to use it sparingly, and only when needed. 

While CBD water is considered safe, there are some researchers who are concerned that drinking too much could produce unexpected results. That’s why, as previously stated, it’s good to use CBD sparingly, and only when needed.

It should also be noted that taking CBD isolate instead of using the whole plant, or “Full-Spectrum” CBD products may reduce the effectiveness of the compound as well. Look for whole-plant cannabidiol products for best results. Ideally you should look for a CBD water product with a significant amount of CBD in order to avoid being scammed. A good CBD water product should have at least 15 mg of cannabidiol, and probably no more than 50 mg per bottle.

CBD FAQ Photo What is CBD Water?

CBD Water vs CBD Oil

CBD oils and edibles are by far the most common, and also some of the most popular CBD products available, but how do they compare to CBD water? As previously mentioned CBD water has a greater degree of bioavailability, and also generally offers a better flavor than full spectrum hemp oil. Another thing to consider when choosing between CBD water and other products is the price. Because of the extra processes involved in CBD water creation there are cost considerations to think about. CBD water can be expensive, with some brands charging as much as ten dollars for a single bottle. If used sparingly, CBD water can be a helpful addition to your workout regiment. It’s excellent for post workout recovery.

CBD Water & Drinks Recipe

CBD Water & Drinks Recipe

Overview:

Making CBD Water at home is as straightforward as it sounds, combine high quality water or water based beverages with water soluble CBD. The only difficulty here is finding water soluble CBD from a reputable vendor. We believe water soluble CBD from liposomes to be the cleanest and most natural source, and would suggest to our patrons seeking it out for homebrew.


The only other important notes for making CBD beverages at home is knowing how much CBD to supplement, and to keep your beverages blow boiling. CBD has a natural boiling point between 320 and 356 degrees fahrenheit. So ensuring temperatures of drinks stay below this line is ideal. Boiling CBD loses terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, which is not ideal. 


Knowing your suggested CBD intake is likewise important and should be studied before jumping in. Always check with your doctor before beginning any new form of supplementation. If dosages or recommendations don’t come directly from your Doctor it will take a bit of trial and error. Cannabidiol dosages change depending on what the desired goal is and what your target needs are. There is no specific amount of CBD that everyone should take. A general formula MMJ Joseph Rosado suggests is your “body weight x 0.325mg per day.” This is an ideal place to start.

A More In-Depth Look At The CBD Topicals

What does the research tell us about CBD topicals?

Research seems to suggest that the major purported benefit of adding CBD to beauty products is related to cannabis natural anti-inflammatory effect in our body. (source)

Other studies have shown that when cannabinoids where applied to skin cells, it stopped overproduction of keratin, a common issue caused by psoriasis. (source)

There are a number of ideas as to why CBD may contribute to the anti-inflammatory response of the dermis. This would be prime applications for managing conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne. All bodily systems have receptors and the skin is no different. Evidence suggests topical applications of CBD could potentially also help with nerve pain signaling and limiting (alleviating) their transmission.

In these studies it is important to note that the results of CBD where seen through topical applications. Shop our line of CBD Skin Care and Topicals Now.

So should I try CBD skin-care products?

Firstly, it is necessary and imperative before using any supplement, extract, or over the counter drug to check with a doctor. Never add anything to your daily regimen before knowing it is needed, necessary, and safe.

Secondly, CBD should be seen as complementary supplementation, never a primary source. Never forgo one form of treatment for another, especially if experiencing relief. Lastly, always purchase high quality products from a trusted source. What you put on your skin or mouth should be just as important as what you put inside.

If you decide to use CBD for topical application ensure your purchase is correct for your needs. Cannabidiol Life Balm for instance contains a higher concentration of cannabidiol, which may help with deep tissue pain and inflammation present in the skin or muscles.

CBD so far has shown to be relatively safe by the Medical Marijuana community and it’s Doctor proponents. Bad reactions to products generally come from additives not the CBD.

CBD Bathbomb Recipe


CBD Bath bomb are extremely fun to make and even more of a joy to use. They are also notoriously fickle, any change in the mixture can cause problems. It is best to use high quality ingredients. Citric Acid especially can cause clumping or drying. Ball brand canning citric acid works amazingly well for making CBD bath bombs at home. We cannot stress this enough. 


To make bath bombs at home begin by mixing dry ingredients together in a mechanical mixer at very low speed. Mix a bit by hand to make sure no clumps or unincorporated parts at the bottom. 

Dry Ingredients

  • 3 cups Baking Soda
  • 1.5 cup Citric Acid
  • 1.5 cups Cornstarch
  • 3 TBSP of Epsom Salt
  • CBD Isolate

Once fully combined with no clumping put on very low speed and add all wet ingredients

Wet Ingredients

  • 1.5 TBSP Jojoba Oil
  • 1 TBSP Rosehip Oil
  • 1 TBSP Argan Oil
  • 1 TBSP Water
  • 1 TBSP Alcohol
  • 1 TBSP Lavender Essential Oil Scent
  • 1 TBSP Coloring
  • 4 TBSP Cocoa Butter (Melted)

Allow this mixture to spin for 1-2 mins to fully combine. Stop the mixer and feel the mixture. It should feel like wet sand, and not grainy. Once fully combined use mixture with bath bomb press of choice and form. Once formed place to dry for 24 hours.

  • Once your misture has cooled a bit you can add essential extracts if decided to use. Then add water slowly. Do not add to the balm if it is completely cooled. Mix thoroughly.
  • Pour cooling mixture into a container like glass to finish.

Extra Additives

Using CBD to make topicals at home is relatively straight forward. Adding extra extracts or essential oils is where recipes can begin to be a little more complicated. This is because there are so many to choose from. Below are some of our favorites and what we believe go well for CBD skin care.

  • Lavender: Lavender smells wonderful and this is mainly why you will find it in our bath bombs. Lavender may help reduce stress and anxiety, heal wounds, and clear acne. 
  • Eucalyptus: The eucalyptus plant is  known in homeopathic care to function as an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. People also use it to help with dry skin, muscle pain, and acne. 
  • Tea Tree: Tea tree oil is one of the most popular essential oils used for acne. When combined with CBD (which research shows maybe beneficial for acne-prone skin), you’ve got a potentially powerful natural remedy.
  • Ylang-Ylang: Ylang-ylang has a wonderfully flowery scent. The Chinese have used Ylang-ylang to help with acne for centuries. They also use it for skin health for elasticity, smoothing and wrinkles. A great ingredient for anyone concerned with aging skin.
  • Peppermint: What better way to show someone you love them during the holidays then to make a home made peppermint CBD balm. Peppermint essential oil is doted to be excellent for relieving pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. CBD may also help to alleviate arthritis pain.
  • Frankincense: Frankincense is so old its mentioned in ancient texts! For centuries it has been used for its purported anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It also may help to relieve stress, enhance immune function, improve memory, and reduce the signs of aging like stretch marks. Its scent is slightly sweet, and woodsy/earthy.

CBD Pills and Capsules Recipe

CBD Pills and Capsules Recipe

This guide will instruct you on how to make CBD oil infused capsules at home, by using a safe, inexpensive, and relatively simple at-home method. The required materials are relatively inexpensive, and you should be able to find them online or at a local store. The process takes a few hours and can be done in several different ways. Methods can vary depending on what ingredients and equipment you use. This recipe will produce around 45-50 capsules.

This recipe calls for an infusion of coconut oil and soy lecithin. When combined, these two work as an excellent agent to use for metabolizing the cannabinoids as they pass through your digestive system.

Dosing will vary based on factors like the potency of your materials and the ratio of the ingredients you use. There is no exact standard ratio, but the ratio(s) serves as an adequate guideline. You can always experiment later to find your perfect personalized recipe.

Equipment, Ingredients & Materials

  • Baking tray
  • Double Boiler Setup
  • Parchment paper
  • Cheese cloth
  • Rubber band
  • Spatula
  • 7-14 grams of ground cannabis
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup of extra virgin organic coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp soy lecithin
  • Slow cooker
  • 45 to 50 empty gelatin capsules (size 00)
  • Capsule Filling machine
  • 10mm Syringe  with oral irrigators and tapered deep reach tips
  • Cooking pot with lid

Instructions

STEP 1: DECARBOXYLATION

Preheat oven to 220 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare materials by grinding them finely with a grinder. Spread the grounds across a sheet of parchment paper that has been placed over a baking tray. Ovens will vary in temperature, so it’s important to make sure your oven does not get hotter than 250 degrees Fahrenheit or you risk cooking off the cannabinoids. Bake the material for 30-50 minutes to achieve proper decarboxylation,. Once finished, pull the tray from the oven and place in a safe area. Keep the temperature at 220 degrees if you plan on using your oven for the following steps.

STEP 2: INFUSION

  1. DOUBLE BOILER/OVEN – Start by filling the outer portion of the double boiler 3/4 of the way full with water. Bring it to a soft boil and add your coconut oil and soy lecithin to the inner cooking bowl. Make sure it sits about 1-2 inches above the soft boiling water. After several minutes, your coconut oil and soy lecithin will melt and you can add the cannabis.

Continue to mix the material together until everything is blended well. Empty the hot water out of your cooking pot and then add the oil mixture. Place the pot back in the oven (still at 220 degrees) for an additional 30-45 minutes. Check in a few times as it may be necessary to stir it.

  1. SLOW COOKER- Add your cannabis, coconut oil, and soy lecithin to your slow cooker and turn it to LOW. Allow the material to cook for two hours to achieve proper decarboxylation. Make sure you stir it a few times per hour.

STEP 3: FILLING CAPS

While your oil is finishing in the oven, prepare the size 00 empty gelatin capsules and capsule filling machine. Instructions for your particular machine should come with it. These devices are designed to make capsule filling a much easier, more streamlined process, although the machine is not required.

Now secure the cheese cloth over the rim of the inner portion of your double boiler using the rubber band. When the oil is finished, remove it from the oven and strain the oil through your cheese cloth and into the bowl, catching the unnecessary particulates along the way. Be sure to let the oil cool to a temperature lower than 100 degrees Fahrenheit before filling your syringe with it. Gelatin capsules will melt over 100 degrees, so make sure that your oil is as cool as you can get it before letting it solidify.

Use the syringe’s tapered deep reach tip to feed the oil into the gelatin capsules, one at a time, until you run out of oil; repeat this process accordingly. Once finished, use the instructions on your filling machine to close each capsule. Store the finished caps in a cool, dark place, like the refrigerator until you are ready to use them.
