As you’ve likely seen, CBD has been growing rapidly in popularity over the last couple of years. While it provides many of the relaxation and health benefits of cannabis, CBD does not include the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. This has made CBD appealing to a wide array of people from all backgrounds and is a major reason why CBD is more widely accepted over its high-producing cousin.
With talk about the many health benefits associated with CBD as well as a rising in popularity, this widening appeal has brought interest from people who would not usually be looking to use cannabis-based products due to their personal situation. The lack of THC is, therefore, very much a reason that the appeal of CBD products has grown.
The extraction process that creates CBD, can, however, leave a trace amount of THC in it. While this level of THC will have no effect on the user due to the small dosage, it still can leave very small traces of THC in your blood. With mandatory drug testing required for many professions, such as the police or the military, this also makes CBD off bounds. With THC being known to be the element found in cannabis that has the psychoactive properties, for some people, even trace amounts may be a cause for concern.
That being said, we are happy to say there is an alternative to cannabis-derived CBD so that you can enjoy a THC-free experience, known as CBD isolate.
What Is CBD Isolate?
CBD Isolate is essentially CBD in its very purest form. That means that it has absolutely no trace of THC whatsoever. The best CBD Isolate is also completely free of impurities. Much of the CBD that is available on the market will contain other elements from the cannabis plant such as very small amounts of the numerous other minor cannabinoids, trace amounts of THC, and various nutrients and proteins that naturally occur within the plant. With CBD isolate, you get just the CBD and nothing else.
This makes CBD accessible to anyone that has concerns about the potential trace amounts of THC in their CBD products, as well as providing a suitable alternative to anyone who may need to undergo drug testing on a regular basis.
Once CBD isolate has been extracted, it will be in the form of a white crystal-like powder. CBD isolate is completely odorless and has no flavor.
How Is CBD Isolate Made?
CBD isolate is made using a complex extraction process. Firstly, the CBD is extracted and purified from the hemp. Alcohol is used to extract the oil from the solid plant material and then the alcohol is evaporated off. From here, the extract goes through several other purification steps until full-spectrum CBD oil is made. This contains all of the cannabinoids, nutrients, and proteins. Then the oil is heated up under a vacuum until it starts to vaporize and come back together as a solid elsewhere. This helps separate the compounds before a crystallization process occurs and the CBD isolate is left as a white powder.
What Is A CBD Tincture?
Our Planet M CBD isolate tincture combines the best CBD hemp oil with MCT oil. It is regarded by many as one of the best CBD drops as it is so versatile.
The CBD tincture is fast-acting as it is absorbed into your bloodstream through consuming sublingually.
How Is CBD Isolate Tincture Made?
Using fatty oils such as medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil combined with the best CBD oil or CBD isolate, it is possible to create a CBD tincture. Saturated fats are useful to CBD as they increase their bioavailability meaning that they act as very efficient carriers to help the CBD get absorbed into your body.
As mentioned above, CBD isolate is great for those conscious of their THC intake, but who still want to experience the benefits of CBD. We understand that sometimes you need to be really careful of the THC content of products because of your job or personal preferences.
