Pure CBD Isolate
CBD Isolate is a crystalline powder that is nearly THC-free (may contain trace amounts of THC) and has all other plant compounds removed leaving only the isolated cannabinoids. CBD isolate has had all fats, lipids, waxes, oil, chlorophyll, and other plant material removed to create a highly purified powder from the isolated CBD molecule.
We recommend using CBDa isolate in conjunction with CBD Distillate or Live Resin rather than on it’s own in product formulations. Research shows that CBD is more effective when it contains more of the plant’s therapeutically beneficial compounds. By using CBD Isolate in conjunction with CBD Distillate, the CBD content of the final product can be boosted while maintaining the efficacy of the product from the inclusion of the plant’s compounds that work synergistically with the CBD molecule.
CBD Isolate is ideal for use in tinctures, oils, topicals, capsules, soft gels, sublingual sprays, creams, edibles, gels, shampoo, lotion, cosmetics, soaps, beverages, and vape pens. The important consideration is the solubility of the powder in your final product. We also offer water-soluble CBD Isolate. Please contact us if you have questions about formulations and ordering.

Highly refined CBD concentrate
CBD Isolate is the most refined CBD concentrate option you can find making it ideal for product formulations where a high potency is desired. The CBD Isolate we offer is extracted in a highly controlled environment and processed to guarantee industry-leading purity and consistency.
CBD ISOLATE USES
CBD isolate is a great option for highly regulated markets where there is consumer demand for alternative medicine and plant-based solutions but where THC is not allowed legally. Since it is the purest form of CBD it contains the least amount of THC possible.
CBD Isolate is also ideal for those with THC intolerance. Some people cannot or choose not to consume THC making CBD Isolate the best choice for their needs since it contains the least amount of THC. CBD Isolate is nearly THC-free except in trace amounts that are undetectable by most testing equipment.
It is the key ingredient for some of the industry’s most recognized products and brands and is found in many products including tinctures, oils, topicals, capsules, soft gels, sublingual sprays, creams, edibles, gels, shampoo, lotion, cosmetics, soaps, beverages, and vape pens.
We recommend using it to boost CBD levels in products that are also formulated with CBD Distillate or Live Resin rather than formulating with it on it’s own. This is because studies show a fuller plant spectrum to be more therapeutically beneficial.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CBD ISOLATE
Can I use CBD Isolate in any product?
Depending on the desired final product texture and other how the Isolate will be integrated into the product. it may or may not be the best input. CBD Isolate would not homogenize with water for example and water-soluble CBD would be needed (which we sell, contact us for details).
Is CBD Isolate THC Free?
CBD Isolate is considered THC-free due to its purity. There may still be non-detectable trace amounts of THC present but it is still considered to be free of THC.
HOW CBD ISOLATE IS MADE
Step 1: Extraction
All concentrates begin with the process of extraction and this includes CBD Isolate. There are different hydrocarbon solvents including butane, propane, and ethanol. Ethanol is the most commonly used solvent for the production of CBD Isolate as it has one of the highest throughputs.
Step 2: Winterization
Winterization is the process of removing the fats, waxes, and chlorophyll from the initial extract. If these compounds weren’t removed, it would lower the percentage and purity of the CBD Isolate.
To achieve winterization the extract is cooled down to sub-zero temperatures with a solvent. By maintaining the extract in the chilled environment for a period of time, the lipids (fats and waxes) coagulate and separate from the crude oil – which is known as ‘miscella’.
Step 3: Filtration
Once winterization has been completed, the fats and waxes that coagulated from the miscella are removed. A filter press and vacuum pump pull the unfiltered miscella mixture through a series of filter plates to separate the fats, waxes, and other compounds into one vessel while the now-filtered miscella is in another.
Step 4: Decarboxylation
In order to achieve the highest CBD content, decarboxylation must be performed. The process of decarboxylation is to convert carboxylic acid and CO2 from cannabinoids present in the cannabis extract which means CBDa is converted into CBD, its neutral form. Converting the acidic cannabinoid CBDa to its neutral form of CBD ensures the highest concentration of CBD.
Step 5: Distillation
Now that our extract has been winterized, filtered, and decarboxylated, we can perform distillation. Both short path and wiped film distillation equipment can be used for this step. With the wiped film method, the extract is loaded under vacuum into a tank where it passes by a heated plate.
As the oil is heated it enters a secondary chamber with spinning wipers that create a thin film around the heated, jacketed chamber. After this the heated liquid enters a long condensing coil where it is cooled with fluid and recondenses the vapors back to liquid form.
In the final step of this process the CBD oil which is referred to as the ‘main body’ is collected separately from the terpenes, volatiles and higher boiling point cannabinoids which are known as ‘heads’ and ‘tails’.
Step 6: Crystallization
In this final step, manufacturers change the structure of the CBD Isolate is to subject it to a crystallization process. This process results in a final product that is still the purest form of CBD but with a crystalline structure.
This crystallization process begins by placing the CBD oil into a large reactionary vessel, with a stirring mechanism attached. The mixture is heated while constantly stirred. Slowly after some time, the temperature is lowered and the rate of stirring is slowed down.
Once the mixture has cooled and nucleation starts to occur which is the initial stage of crystallization, the stirring rate is drastically increased, which causes the crystals to separate from the solution. After this, the crystals are rinsed with pentane, or other chemical solvents, to remove any remaining unwanted impurities.
