CBD products are becoming more and more popular amongst patients and healthcare professionals all over the United States. CBD isolate is the most versatile delivery format. Isolate is used in foods, topicals, tinctures, edibles, softgels, gelcaps, with many novel product applications released every day.
What Is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate products come in two forms: crystalline solids or powders. Both of these contain ~99% pure CBD. The CBD extraction process is based on removing all of the active components from the cannabis plant and then refining these compounds to remove all of the unwanted compounds and plant matter from the isolate. These compounds include phytocannabinoids (THC being one of them). The end result of this procedure is an isolate containing ~99% pure CBD. Contrary to CBD oil or other broad-spectrum CBD products, isolates solely contain cannabidiol (CBD).
How Is CBD Isolate Used?
There are a variety of different products made from CBD isolates. Isolate powders are odorless, flavorless, and soluble in fats, allowing companies to enhance existing manufactured products such as cosmetics and topicals, post-workout supplements, culinary aids, and candy.
CBD Isolate APIs are central to pharmaceutical research and development. Clinicians and new drug developers are studying the CBD molecule intensely, with more than 1400 clinical trials currently registered with clinicaltrials.org.
Due to certain health conditions, or the possibility of drug testing, some people simply cannot afford to have any THC in their systems. Full-spectrum products usually contain trace amounts of THC (up to 0.3%, as per the official federal regulations). While not enough to produce intoxicating effects, these amounts may still show up on a urine test and have an effect on people who cannot consume tetrahydrocannabinol due to medical reasons.
CBD Isolates are the most versatile and pure form of CBD, allowing them to be added to industrial process, ingredient formulations, pharmaceutical drug development, cosmetic applications and more.
