The CBD is typically isolated using a whole bunch of chemical processes. What sort of chemicals are used to make isolate CBD? We’re talking about chemicals like Methanol, Pentane, acetic acid, hexane, propyl carbonate, Ethyl Acetate, Silica, etc. The CBD Isolate looks like a fine, white, crystalline powder. It looks a lot like cocaine.
And, CBD products made with isolate CBD are typically labeled as “PURE” or having “PURE CBD.”
The million dollar question is, do you really want to be buying “PURE” CBD products?
As you can see they’re not actually PURE. A whole lot of chemicals are used to isolate just the CBD.
And, if residues of these chemicals get left behind at toxic levels, then they could end up doing you’re doing your body more harm than good. So, knowing the industry isn’t regulated, if I were you, I would ask the seller of the “PURE” CBD Oil for lab test results. And you want to check the lab test results for residual solvents. Check out STEP 4 of the video series on How to Find the Best CBD Oil for more info on how to check lab test results for residual solvents.
Otherwise, quite honestly, I’d recommend just steering clear of these chemicals all together and opting for a Full-Spectrum CBD Oil rather than Isolate CBD Oil.
The term full spectrum means that the CBD Oil contains CBD plus all the other cannabinoids and all the other chemicals found in the hemp plant. And of course this includes the trace amounts of THC, 0.3%. The terms full spectrum and whole plant are often used interchangeably.
