What Is CBD Isolate? Is this the best CBD option for me?

CBD Isolate is one of the more common types of CBD and it is one of the less expensive forms of cannabidiol. CBD Isolate is the isolated chemical component cannabidiol, derived from cannabis/hemp plants. CBD isolate is a pure, crystalline powder similar to salt of sugar consistency that contains 99% pure CBD. CBD isolate contains only CBD and nothing else.

CBD Isolate is highly refined and comes in a solid form often used in pharmaceutical and nutraceutical products.

In order to get this ultra-pure form of isolated CBD, a purifying process follows the actual extraction process.

How is CBD isolate made?

Isolate, is derived from hemp plants. The hemp is processed in Supercritical CO2 extraction machine. CO2 extraction yields a cleaner oil compared to less expensive, solvent-based extraction methods such as alcohol.

The first two steps in isolating CBD from the crude extract is Winterization and Decarboxylation. Winterization removes lipids and plant waxes and decarboxylation converts the CBDA to CBD by method of heat and time. Winterized oil then goes through a triple pass fractional distillation process to remove chlorophyll, terpenes, and undesirable contaminates. Fractional distillation also allows for concentration and separation of CBD from other minor cannabinoids. The concentrated CBD fraction is then mixed with a non-polar solvent in a reactor. The solution is heated and cooled to precipitate out pure CBD in crystal form, the same way sugar precipitates out of water when making rock candy. The CBD precipitate is then washed with the same non-polar solvent in the reactor to purify the CBD of any contaminates. The isolate is then placed into a vacuum oven for 48 hours to purge the isolate of all solvents that were used in the isolation process, resulting in 99% pure solvent free CBD Isolate.

While isolate is the purest form of CBD it is not always the best. When purifying other valuable ingredients from the hemp plant are lost.  The purification process will eliminate other existing cannabinoids, minor cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC, THC), terpenes, chlorophyll, lipids, and plant waxes.

Most people would argue you need more than just the CBD cannabinoid to reap the full benefits of the hemp plant. It is also argued that it is essential to have lipid, fatty acids for absorption. Terpenes and plant biomass also are known to have therapeutic effects on the body. Each of ingredient has healing powers all of their own. Full plant extract cannabinoids and other ingredients are harmoniously working together to stimulate the endocannabinoid system.  Here at WellPUR Organics we believe that by preserving the hemp plant elements our Broad Spectrum CBD products will be more effective to your overall health and wellbeing.
