What is CBD Isolate?
Known as the purest form possible of the cannabinoid compound, CBD isolate only contains only Cannabidiol (CBD) itself, with all other compounds removed during the extraction process. Typically, hemp is used to extract this specific type of CBD as hemp is known to have very low and close to non-existent levels of THC. Without THC and minus all other natural compounds like flavonoids, essential oils, and terpenes, CBD isolate is generally considered to be safe for use, especially for those who are new to CBD and are just trying out its medicinal value. It is tasteless and odourless, purely containing only CBD in its purest form. With the absence of THC, individuals can benefit from its therapeutic qualities without any psychoactive side effects and without the risk of testing positive on drug tests.
However, CBD isolate only has the one cannabinoid, Cannabidiol, and therefore its effects aren’t as fully potent as the other two types. For prolonged use or for severe conditions, CBD isolate won’t be able to produce highly effective therapeutic results as the full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD could deliver on a case to case basis. It is ideally recommended to be used by:
- Those who are first-time users of CBD and those sensitive to strong odours and flavours
- Those who need to specifically high doses of CBD only
- Those who regularly take drug screening tests and who might live in states with strict THC regulations and Cannabis laws
- Those who are highly sensitive to THC and its unwanted side effects
