The CBD rich Hemp extract is then heated, cooled and separated repeatedly, Usually through a process of C02 Extraction. After the final cycle of extraction it is placed in a cool dark area, with the help of a vacuum pump and/or oven removing any remaining contaminants.

CBD Crystaline: Dabbing/Vaping/E-liquids
Crystalline is by far the most versatile CBD product on the market, it can be smoked, dabbed, ingested or applied topically. The oils you would find in tinctures cannot be smoked/dabbed due to the high fat content. If you’re looking for one of the most effective way to use CBD isolate, this is the solution.

Create your own vape juices which allows you to continue to use the flavor you already love. This can be achieved by adding the isolate to your selected vape juice and warming it slightly while mixing multiple times throughout the process this will allow for the CBD isolate to become suspended in the liquid. (check out video below for more details).
What are the pros and cons of dabbing isolate?
Dabbing is by far the quickest way to get CBD into your body, while also limiting the amount of plant matter being introduced into the lungs. The first thing you may notice when you inhale the CBD crystalline vapor, is a over all sense of calm. Since when you dab crystalline it is directly introduced in to your bloodstream bypassing the liver, you can also experience coughing and feeling of light headedness.
The best things that can be said about this method is you’re able to find the right dosage quickly because you can immediately feel the effects then, adjust accordingly.
Now this may sound great and it is.. but there can be draw backs to this method, First off there’s the suspicious looking nature and hard to work with material, especially for people, new to dabbing.
If you have dabbed in the past then by far, this is the best way to get cannabinoids into your body. For first time users you can expect a learning curve with a additional costs for the Vape Pen or Dab Rig but with practice you can be a pro before you know it!
CBD crystalline: Skin Care
One of the least talked about ways to use cannabinoids would have to be topicals. There by far the best way to localize CBD to a specific point. That is without the use of suppositories.. but that is for a much different article. The best thing about topicals is you can give your existing lotions or creams a boost of CBD simply by mixing the Crystalline into it. That way you have a cream you love, just enhanced with CBD.
A different possibility is to mix CBD crystalline with any high fat carrier oil such as olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter. Which can then be applied to anywhere on the skin. CBD has a powerful blend of antioxidants to improve skin conditions. Recent studies show that CBD can help with many common painful and irritating skin problems.
One thing that could be seen as a draw back of hand-made skincare products, is when applying to an open wound, there is a risk for infection. Always store in Dark, Dry and Cool environment!
CBD Crystalline for Edibles.
You can dissolve CBD Crystalline into high fat ingredients like Coconut oil, vegetable oil and butter. (Brownies anyone?) Set your stove to the lowest setting and start melting your oils or butter into the pan. Add the amount of crystalline you desire and stir slowly until it all dissolves. Simmer for around 4 minutes. The less heat, the better, you want just enough to melt into itself. Now that you have the base oils or butter you can now add this to a dish or any baked good.
The biggest thing to watch for when cooking with CBD is that the heat does not exceed more the 160-180 Celsius (about 320 Fahrenheit) or you risk boiling off some of the CBD, losing effectiveness. When baking this is the internal temperature so most cookies, brownies or treats we make for the fur babies in our life, will still be effective.
Low and slow is always the key here! No Wok cooking or high heat such as stir fry. You can always drizzle it on after the cooking process has completed! Discretion is needed but really the possibilities are endless.
Keep in mind when ingesting CBD crystalline in an edible form, every person’s digestive tract and body are different, so the effects can come at a much slower rate because it must be metabolized into the blood stream through our liver. To start it can be a challenge to find the right dosage and approximate serving size for each individual person.
When storing your CBD creation it should be in a amber/dark bottle (think old school medicine bottle), away from heat, oxygen and direct sunlight. This will preserve the cannabinoids and stop them from degrading to a thing like CBN.
Is CBD Crystalline right for you?
CBD crystalline is ideal for people seeking CBD in the purest form. Most manufactures of products often start with CBD isolate to guarantee the correct CBD potency because of the ease of measurement. If your currently taking a hemp derived CBD products chances are you are already using CBD in the isolated form. Remember that caution is your best friend, until you know how CBD or any other cannabinoids effects you on an individual level, start low and go slow.
