WHAT IS CBD ISOLATE?
CBD isolate is a crystalline powder containing 100% pure cannabidiol from hemp. All other components of the hemp plant are removed to achieve pure CBD extracts. Pure CBD isolate is obtained through a purification process where all plant material minus CBD is filtered out of the extracts. After filtration, the extracted substance goes through a more rigorous process called winterization. Winterization removes all remaining elements that might have stuck around after filtration. This leaves a fine, white powder consisting of only CBD.
CBD FULL SPECTRUM VS. ISOLATE: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
As opposed to CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD contains other cannabinoids in addition to cannabidiol. However, only minimal amounts of these cannabinoids are included in full spectrum solution– CBD is still the main ingredient. Some compounds in full spectrum CBD include CBN (cannabinol), CBG (cannabigerol), and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Even though THC is often included in full spectrum solutions, it comes in very low concentrations (less than 0.3%), resulting in no psychoactive effects.
