Recently, MediPharm Labs announced a new brand called Labs Cannabis to the market featuring their Pure CBD Crystalline Isolate.
What is CBD Crystalline Isolate?
CBD Crystalline Isolate is a pure form of cannabidiol (CBD) in a crystalline solid or powder form that contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This means there are little to no intoxicating effects that can be felt and it’s suitable for all levels of cannabis experience. In comparison, full-spectrum CBD products contain at least a small amount of THC. CBD isolates can contain 99% CBD with only trace amounts of other cannabinoids, making isolates one of the purest and most potent forms of CBD.
Labs Cannabis’ Pure CBD Crystalline Isolate manufactured by MediPharm Labs in their GMP-certified facility, is a high-quality, high-potency, fine-white crystalline powder with 99% pure CBD in a concentrated form. The product is an all-natural cannabinoid supplement made from cannabis extract refined through numerous steps and contains only trace amounts of THC. Each container of Labs Cannabis’ Pure CBD Crystalline Isolate contains 500mg of product in powder form.
How is CBD Crystalline Isolate Made?
Making CBD Crystalline Isolate begins with high-purity CBD distillate that is mixed with an organic solvent, which readily dissolves distillate at room temperature. The mixture is then chilled in a controlled manner to rapidly decrease the solubility of CBD. Instead of staying in the solution, CBD prefers to stick to itself, forming precipitates or crystals. These crystals grow over time, pulling more CBD out of the solution and into the crystal structures. The rest of the compounds, like THC and other plant components, remain in the chilled solution. After CBD crystallization is complete, the liquid can be poured off from the crystals. The crystals are washed to ensure high purity and the isolate is thoroughly dried to remove residual solvents and then milled into fine powder. This process has yielded CBD Crystalline Isolate at over 99% purity for the manufacture of this new product.
How Can Consumers Use CBD Crystalline Isolate?
Because CBD Crystalline Isolate does not have intoxicating effects, is almost flavourless and odourless, it can be taken daily and consumed in several different ways, including as a versatile ingredient that won’t interfere with the flavour, texture, or aroma of someone’s favourite recipe. It can be added to any oil-based foods (CBD isolate is not compatible with water-soluble recipes) and it can be baked with.
Added to Food
CBD Crystalline Isolate is suitable to mix with oil and fat-based foods such as butter, oils, egg products, nut butters or flours, hummus, coconut-based or diary-based foods such as yogurt or soft cheeses, avocados, olive paste, coco butter, or milk chocolate.
CBD crystalline isolate can be used in its raw form or added prior to cooking. When baking with it, consumers will want to add the CBD isolate into the oil or egg mixture before folding in dry ingredients and mix well to ensure it is spread evenly. Keep in mind, CBD has a boiling point and can degrade in high heat. Advise people to cook at low temperatures less than 350º Fahrenheit.
Making an Oil Mixture
CBD oil can also be made out of CBD crystalline isolate by combining an oil (sunflower, coconut or olive oils for example) with the desired dose of CBD Crystalline Isolate into a glass tincture bottle. Shake it up and wait until the isolate has dissolved. Once it’s dissolved, it can be used in cooking, coffee or tea, smoothies or under the tongue.
Under the Tongue
CBD Crystalline Isolate can be put under the tongue and held there for at least 60 seconds. While nearly flavourless, there may still be a trace of cannabis taste in the isolate.
Cannabis products vary in potency and formulation, and every individual is different, therefore, MediPharm Labs recommends consulting a doctor when using cannabis products for the first time and starting off slowly with a low dose.
