By now, you've probably already heard about the wonders of Cannabidiol (CBD) and how it can help you to reduce anxiety, improve your mood, and even reduce pain symptoms. CBD is most commonly sold in oil form, but Remedy Farms has an exciting new product that is sure to change the way you use CBD. It's called CBD Isolate, and it's the purest form of CBD you can buy.
What Is Isolate?
As the name implies, this is an isolated form of CBD. That means it is separated from all other compounds and components. The result is a pure, crystalized form of CBD.
Isolate has a few advantages over other forms of CBD. First, it is very easy to measure and dose. While oils may require you to do some math to determine exactly how many drops are needed, you can use your kitchen measuring spoons to easily dole out the right amount of isolate.
Another plus is that isolate has little to no flavor. Oil-based CBD products typically use coconut oil. Some people may not like that taste. Using isolate gives you unprecedented freedom to decide how you want to take your CBD.
5 Simple Ways to Use CBD Isolate
The freedom you gain from CBD isolate will allow you to try all sorts of innovative and clever ways to take your CBD dose. We've put together a list of easy ways to use our isolate that you can try right now. But first, what exactly is CBD isolate?
1. Sublingual Administration
Sublingual administration is the medical term for taking medicine under your tongue. The soft tissue there is a mucous membrane that can absorb nutrients and chemicals. Chances are you've already tried this method at some point with other products. Cough lozenges, for example, dissolve in your mouth and are absorbed under the tongue.
How to Do It
You can take a teaspoon of CBD straight from the pouch and put it under your tongue. Because of the purity of isolate, the absorption is quite fast. Try to avoid swallowing for a minute or two. Effects should set in after about 10 to 15 minutes after dosing.
This is probably the easiest way to use isolate, but it's not the most interesting. Keep reading to see even more exciting ways to add isolate to your life.
2. Make a Smoothie
Have you ever used protein powder or other types of powdered supplements? If so, you know you can easily throw a scoop into the blender and make a delicious smoothie. The same holds true for our isolate.
How to Do It
Unflavored CBD goes great with fruit smoothies, the aforementioned protein shakes, or even your morning juice. If you're using a blender, just add the amount you want and let it whirl for a minute or two. You can also add it in later and just mix it with a spoon if you forgot to add it before.
3. Add to Coffee or Tea
Many people already use CBD oil with their coffee or tea. However, oil does not mix well with water and can produce a strange texture or film on top of your drink. Although isolate does not dissolve readily in water, warm coffee and tea contain trace oils that can grab the isolate particles and mix them in.
You don't need a lot of explanation for this method. Just put a spoonful into your drink and stir it for a few moments. But that's not all you can do.
If you like sugar or artificial sweetener with your coffee, try mixing your isolate with the sweetener ahead of time. Now you can get both in one scoop and save yourself a little trouble every morning.
4. Get Cooking With CBD
This is where our tips start getting a little more complex. Believe it or not, you can actually cook with isolate. It's not very difficult, but there are some things you need to know beforehand.
Like any substance, CBD has a melting point, a boiling point, and a point at which it will burn and no longer be useful. Fortunately, CBD is quite resistant to the levels of heat you would use in your kitchen.
Generally, CBD will not burn or be destroyed until it reaches temperatures of over 200 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit). Be aware of this if you decide to bake or cook with CBD, as you would not want to waste your material. Simply sprinkling CBD on your steak is probably not going to be very effective. The high temperatures on a grill or frying pan can easily eradicate CBD. So, what methods should you use?
Baking with CBD is surprisingly easy. Whether you're making a cake or a casserole, you can mix the isolate into the ingredients during preparation. Since most recipes call for temperatures lower than the upper limit of CBD, you won't run into issues.
Before you start, do the math on how much isolate you need for your recipe. Consider how many servings your recipe will yield and how much CBD you need in your dose. Write this down so you don't forget.
Sauces and Such
Another fantastic way to mix CBD into your cooking is to blend it in with sauces or condiments. If you're making pasta, for instance, you could add the isolate to your grandmother's favorite tomato sauce recipe.
Truthfully, the only limit is your imagination. You can add CBD to the maple syrup you put on your pancakes for Saturday morning. Mix it into the marinade you want to use for your chicken. Even hot sauce makes for a great vehicle for CBD.
5. Add CBD to Your Vape Oil
Isolate mixes well with propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin: the two main liquids used in vaping. If you make your own liquid blend, you can easily add CBD to create your own CBD vaping oil. You can also add it to pre-made liquids.
This is a great technique if you already vape, however, we wouldn't recommend you start just for CBD. Still, it's another simple way to incorporate CBD into your daily routine.
How to Do It
This method requires a bit more precision in measuring for best results. Similar to vaping nicotine or THC, you'll want to know how many milligrams there are in every milliliter of liquid. You can actually get everything you need to add CBD to your vape oil from a local store for just a few dollars.
Get an empty plastic bottle like the kind you'd use in a diner for ketchup or mustard. Add a known quantity of vape juice using a measuring cup. Then add the amount of CBD you'd like to reach the desired dose. Pre-mixed blends for sale typically aim for anywhere between 7 and 30 milligrams of CBD per milliliter.
What You Shouldn't Do
Now that you have 5 simple ways to use isolate, we want to mention a few things you absolutely should not do if you want to get the best experience. Seeing how easy it is to use, many people think that it's impossible to use CBD incorrectly. However, there are some ways that are less effective.
Mix Into Water
Remember how we said that CBD doesn't mix readily with water? As it is in an isolate form, it is a hydrophobic compound. This means it avoids water and won't dissolve in it. If you dump a scoop of CBD into a glass of water, you'll just have a lot of powder floating on top. That's not very appetizing!
Eat Isolate on an Empty Stomach
One thing isolate does not handle well is an acidic environment. The inside of your stomach is exactly that. If you haven't eaten anything in a while, the isolate will be exposed to your pure stomach acid. It doesn't stand much of a chance in that situation.
You don't have to have a full meal before taking CBD. Even something as light as a piece of fruit or a snack will be enough to dilute the acid in your stomach and give your isolate time to be absorbed.
No Intranasal or Intravenous Use
This should go without saying, but we do feel a need to remind people that for their safety and for best results, you should not attempt to take isolate in either of these ways. Not only can it be seriously harmful to your body, but it also won't result in better effects by any means.
