How Is CBD Isolate Made?
CBD Isolate is manufactured via an extraction process (just like most CBD extractions – that’s how manufacturers get the compounds they need from cannabis plants.)
Once the concentrated CBD is extracted from the plant, it must purify for a period of time, with the chemical compounds needed to create CBD Isolate filtrated out of the cannabis that’s extracted from the plant.
Once the CBD is filtered out, the CBD oil removed from the cannabis plant goes through one last process, called winterization, where any remaining plant particles are removed from the CBD oil.
Winterization is the process for chilling chemical compounds, which is needed to extract impurities from the CBD. With CBD Isolate, the winterization process takes away any waxes or other unneeded components (like terpenes, chlorophyll and/or flavonoids) remaining in the CBD.
Once that process is complete, the manufacturer is left with pure CBD powder, which has no levels of THC and is at a level that is 99% pure cannabidiol.
CBD manufacturers have the option to either produce CBD Isolate as a pure powder or turn it into a crystal isolate.
The primary difference in that scenario how the end user will ultimately ingest the CBD Isolate. Here’s a breakdown:
Taking CBD Isolate as a powder.
Manufacturers often mix CBD Isolate into edible gummies, creams they can simply rub into their skin,
or ingested as a power under the tongue for the most direct (and fastest) results.
