Before we begin to discuss CBD isolate powder in the UK, let's take a closer look at CBD to help us understand exactly what it is. Cannabidiol, also called CBD for short, is a phytocannabinoid or plant-based compound produced by the cannabis plant. It is found in both medical and recreational cannabis as well as in industrial hemp. CBD produced from industrial hemp has very minuscule amounts of THC. CBD in the UK comes from only EU-approved hemp cultivars that contain less than 0.2% THC. While these hemp cultivars barely have any of the psychoactive compound THC, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals along with other cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, and CBD.
CBD can be infused into many different products. Foods, beverages, makeup, lotions, creams, salves, balms, bath bombs, and more are finding CBD as a common ingredient these days. Have you ever wondered how these products get their CBD? Like, exactly how do they add CBD and CBD Isolate to these products? Maybe you think they grind up the plant and throw it right in there. Perhaps you think they cook it first. If either of these was your thought on how CBD isolate powder comes to be, you're kind of right.
This means it is extremely versatile. But how exactly does it become this versatile? Companies and brands are obviously not just grinding up a plant and throwing it in a product. Or are they? Let's get ready to take a closer look and explore how CBD is turned into crystals and CBD isolate powder to create CBD that is added to so many products consumers use today. But, before we do this, let's run over the legality of CBD in the UK.
CBD is legal in the UK as long as it only comes from EU-approved hemp cultivars that contain 0.2% THC or less and each closed container consists of less than 1mg of THC. Much of the hemp in the UK comes from quality sources meeting EU requirements from Colorado, California, Kentucky, and Washington. Some of the hemp products in the UK are even starting to come out of the Netherlands.
As long as CBD meets the requirements set forth by the EU, it is legal in the UK. The legality of CBD is very closely monitored. Staying compliant with CBD laws means you have to be transparent about your business as well as knowledgeable. This helps assure that CBD products sold in the UK are the best they can be.
Companies that offer legal CBD isolate powder products in the UK operate with full transparency. You will be able to find information about batch testing on any product you purchase. If not, there is something wrong. Quality CBD companies often go through rigorous testing by independent third-party labs. This helps to ensure their product is the highest of quality, meeting the necessary standards for consumers in the UK.
CBD isolate is the CBD compound extracted from industrial Hemp. CBD is free from other phytocannabinoids such as CBN, CBG, and the intoxicating THC. In order to obtain CBD isolate crystals, a process of extraction, winterisation, filtration, decarboxylation, distillation, and crystallisation must occur. In order to extract CBD isolate powder from industrial hemp, a solvent must be used. In many instances, ethanol is the go-to solvent. However, the gold-standard is shifting and many firms have started utilising more pricey supercritical CO2 extraction.
Once the phytocannabinoids have been extracted from industrial hemp, a winterisation process begins. During winterisation, waxes and fats are separated from the extracted material by being placed in a sub-zero environment. Chlorophyll, or the greenish colour found in cannabis extractions, is also removed during this process. After winterisation is complete, filtration begins to separate the fats and waxes from the crude oil. After this process has occurred, the extract will be rich in CBD Powder. By adding heat to the CBDa through a process called decarboxylation, the CBDa is converted into CBD. The extracted, winterised, filtered, and decarboxylated product will now be oil that is rich in CBD.
Finally, the crystallisation process begins. During this time, the crude oil is placed into a vat or vessel where low heat and constant stirring occurs. During this slow process of low heat and stirring, crystallisation begins. Before reaching the point of becoming pure CBD isolate crystals, the product is rinsed with a chemical solvent to ensure it is free from impurities.
CBD isolate crystals are the end result of the process to create CBD isolate from crude oil. These crystals can be added to beverages and liquids or used in vaping pipes which are also known as rigs. Our CBD Isolate is 99%+ pure CBD.
Pure CBD isolate crystals are an exceedingly popular method for consuming CBD product in the UK.
