CBD isolate is a crystalline solid or powder that contains pure CBD. CBD crystalline is surprisingly versatile when it comes to consumption. There are many benefits to using pure CBD powder over other forms of CBD. When CBD isolate is produced, all other cannabinoids and plant impurities are removed.
Probably the most basic form of CBD is an isolate. These contain nothing except pure, isolated CBD. In other words, there are no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or flavonoids – just good old CBD.
Although this might be considered ‘basic’ at first glance, it is actually much harder to glean an isolate from hemp. When hemp undergoes the extraction process to remove its cannabinoids, all of the plant’s compounds are extracted. All the cannabinoids and terpenes come out of the plant. This means that extra steps must be taken in order to isolate the CBD and free it of any other compounds. Because of this, CBD isolate is quite hard to make.
