What are CBD Crystals / Isolate?
CBD Crystals or Isolate is the purest form of Cannabidiol (CBD) in the world. It is obtained by refining hemp extracts like our CBD paste, to separate all other substances from the Cannabidiol in the extract. This results in a pure, isolated and crystallized form of the cannabinoid known as CBD Crystals or CBD Isolate - which can be used in various ways.
Pure Cannabidiol powder
By eliminating all substances besides Cannabidiol from a hemp extract - like terpenes, waxes, sugars, and all other cannabinoids - all you’re left with is a crystallized CBD powder with a purity of approximately 99,8%. The other 0,2% in the product is mostly moisture. As CBD isolate powder is completely free of other cannabinoids and aromatic terpenes. This might make CBD crystals the purest form of CBD available.
Though with no entourage effect, supported by other cannabinoids and/or terpenes, the product alone will not be as effective as a full spectrum hemp extract (CBD Paste) or CBD oil.
Using CBD Crystals at home
Nevertheless, you can use pure CBD Crystals at home in various ways thanks to their purity. For starters, you can simply take a small amount of crystals and let them melt under the tongue. However, this might not be the most ideal way of using the substance. As much of the cannabinoid is lost during the absorption proces of the cannabinoid through the mouth’s mucous tissue.
Though CBD powder can also be used in a vaporizer for concentrates and wax; or sprinkled over any aromatic herb in your dry-herb vaporizer. It is also used to increase the CBD concentration in any CBD oil or to make your own vape juice with - to name a few possibilities. For the latter, we advice to look up a few recipes on Google. As it takes more than just some CBD isolate and a PG/VG mix to make a good CBD vape liquid.
Making CBD oil with Cannabidiol isolate
CBD isolate crystals are also suited to produce your own CBD oil from scratch with. By mixing a specific amount with any carrying oil; like hemp seed oil, MCT oil, olive oil, grape seed oil or salmon oil to name a few. Then to reach a 10% concentration in your oil, for example, you’d need to mix 1000mg CBD isolate (or ±1 gram) with around 9ml of carrying oil:
- Take a glass bottle or handy dish
- Mix your desired amount of CBD crystals with the chosen oil
- Warm the bottle up in a heated water bath for a at least five minutes
- Close the bottle and shake well until the CBD isolate is fully dissolved
You now have your own, clean and CBD-only, hemp oil!
Please note though, as said before, that Pure CBD oil will not have the same effect on the body as full spectrum CBD does. Considering the CBD-only oil lacks the entourage effect which supports the cannabinoid’s effects on our body’s own endocannabinoid system (ECS).

How isolated CBD Crystals are used commercially
While CBD isolate crystals can easily be used by consumers at home. Commercial parties are also known for using this pure form of the cannabinoid with different purposes. Obviously, there are many companies producing pure CBD oil using only cannabidiol isolate and a carrier oil. Though the substance is also used to produce candies and other CBD edibles, CBD cosmetics, CBD vape liquids and actually all products you can think of containing the popular cannabinoid.

Isolated CBG Crystals
When you isolate Cannabigerol (CBG) from a hemp extract however, you get CBG Crystals. Just like with CBD Crystals, this is the purest form of Cannabigerol available. This substance is a little bit more yellow compared to CBD, which makes it possible to distinct the two visually. While CBG Crystals can be used in the same way Cannabidiol powder can, the Cannabigerol powder will provide a different effect. Discover more about the difference between CBD and CBG here.
