With the rapid growth of the CBD industry and constant advances in its technology, there are a lot of terms floating around that are unfamiliar, if not confusing, to many people. CBD isolate is one of them. While the science and biological make-up of CBD is the subject of much research and scholarly articles, it can all be broken down into simple terms.
CBD isolate starts with the extraction of CBD hemp oil. Extracting fatty acids from the stalk and seed produces this oil, a botanical concentrate of hemp plants. CBD is one of the 85 cannabinoids in the hemp plant, which is part of the cannabis family, and cannabidiol/CBD oil is high in CBD. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that deliver an array of health benefits. And consumers can get the spectrum of CBD advantages from a range of products made with CBD isolate – from nutritional supplements to topical applications and even cosmetics. Also, CBD contains no THC, so products made from the isolate are not psychoactive and cannot get you “high”.
CBD and Nanotechnology
Again, don’t be fooled by the scientific terminology. Nanotechnology is the engineering of systems on a molecular level. What does this mean when applied to CBD isolate?
The CBD isolate purification process begins with a certified, proprietary, eco-friendly CO2 extraction process. Next, the fats and oils are removed from the hemp oil. Then, the unwanted plant material is removed with heptane and a rotary evaporator. The oil then goes through a secondary rotary evaporation and is decarboxalated prior to going into the final phase of the CBD isolate processing. To guarantee the purity and safety of the final product, each batch is tested and sent for third party verification.
What that means is that the end product is an extremely concentrated form of CBD. The molecules made are 100x smaller by the purification process.
Why CBD Isolate is Superior
First off, CBD interacts with specific targets on cells in the body. CB1 receptors are found mainly in the brain and are important for learning, coordination, sleep, pain, brain development, etc. CB2 receptors are found mostly in the immune system. What this means is that the chemicals in hemp CBD communicate perfectly with your body’s own chemical language and help create the homeostasis required for good health.
CBD isolate amplifies the delivery of the CBD’s healthy benefits due to the nanotechnology process. In typical CBD products, 90% or more of the CBD is wasted because the body simply cannot absorb it. For instance, CBD particles measure about 2000 nanometers. Human cells measure 100 nanometers. A cell cannot fully utilize a particle larger than itself.
CBD isolate products go as small as 16 nanometers, meaning that there is literally no waste. The body can utilize every part of it. Bottom line: the smaller particles created by nanotechnology mean better absorption.
- Greater bioavailability
- Use less of a given product for an even better result
- CBD particles cross the blood/brain barriers more efficiently
When you use CBD isolate products – on your skin or in your body – you can count on better results. Nanotechnology in CBD products means that before you even ingest it or put it on your skin, the isolate does what the body naturally does before ingestion with maximum absorption and no waste.
