Getting Started with CBD Isolate

Purchase CBD Isolate

Getting Started: Using CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is pre-activated or decarboxylated before packaging, and therefore does not require further application of heat to make it usable by our bodies. There are many ways to take CBD isolate, but there are really only three pathways for CBD isolate to enter your body: the mouth, the skin, and the lungs.

Ingesting CBD Isolate

The easiest way to take CBD isolate is simply to swallow it. This can be done in a variety of ways:

Toss & Wash

Exactly how it sounds. Measure out your dose, swallow it first, then chase it with a beverage. Sure, it’s a bit less elegant than the remaining approaches, but it’s certainly the fastest. Just be sure to take with or after food, as CBD absorbs better in a semi-full stomach than in an empty one.

Dissolve It Into a Drink or Mix It into Food

Onset of effects takes longest with this method (30 to 90 minutes), but those effects tend to last longer some say considerably. 

Take It Sublingually 

A.k.a., the Under The Tongue method. Measure out your dose, pop it under your tongue, wait two minutes and swig it down with a tasty beverage. Sublingual ingestion is faster than digestion because CBD is absorbed directly into the blood vessels under the tongue and along the gumline.

Use It As A Cooking Ingredient

CBD has an approximate 160-180°C (320-356°F) boiling point. If you are cooking with CBD with temperatures that are higher than the boiling point, then the compounds will likely be degraded and lose some of its potency. When are cooking with oils that are infused with CBD isolate, use lower temperatures when cooking it.

Oil Infusion 

You could also infuse your isolate into your carrier oil of choice, be it olive, grapeseed, or MCT oil, to create a precisely-measured, custom cannabidiol oil that you can take sublingually. 

Blend It with Other CBD Products To Boost Their Potency   

CBD isolate can be added easily to hemp oil supplement such as tinctures in order to increase their CBD base milligrams per serving.

Cutaneous Absorption

Make A Topical CBD Isolate Cream or Oil

CBD isolate has neither odor nor taste, so it blends wonderfully with avocado, palm, and coconut oils. After infusing your oil of choice with CBD, you can stop there and use it as a topical massage, or you can go a step further, mixing it with other ingredients to make your own skin care product. If you don’t feel like doing all that extra work, just toss it into your favorite store bought organic skin cream, mix it up, and apply as usual.

Inhaling CBD Isolate

CBD isolate can be enjoyed through all the traditional “breath-based” vehicles that its sister products in the full and broad spectrum range, including:

Vaping CBD Isolate

CBD can be delivered into your bloodstream quicker by using CBD Isolate that produces CBD-rich, pure inhalable vapor. When you vape CBD it makes it possible for the compounds to bypass the digestive tract and get into your bloodstream faster for quicker effects. 

CBD isolate has about a 180-200°C (356-392°F) vaporization point, and be dabbed or vaped using a vape pen or special water bubbler. Do you have a favorite vape concentrate already? Add some CBD isolate in order to give the concentration level and boost and maximize the effects of the CBD isolate.

Smoking CBD Isolate

Any way you prefer. Roll it into a joint or a blunt, sprinkle some into a bowl. It would not surprise us even hardly to discover remarkable results achieved by blending with smokable hemp flower for use in a standing water-pipe.

Dabbing CBD Isolate

The costliest of all methods, dabbing CBD isolate requires special dabbing equipment that can be prohibitively expensive for some, but will result in the highest absorption efficiency, possibly providing the most long term bang-for-buck out of all the common methods.

Buying CBD Isolate – Best Practices

As no standards for marketing, content, or quality have been set by the FDA, it is very important for consumers to thoroughly research the products they are purchasing. A few best practices are suggested by industry experts.

  1. Purchase from providers that have their products tested by an independent third party. 
  2. Ask if their product is made with full-spectrum oil or CBD isolate. You want to have full-spectrum oil since it has more of the plant’s nutrients and compounds. 
  3. Ask about the extraction method. If it is solvent based, ask which solvent they use.
