For starters, true CBD isolates consist of nothing but pure CBD, so there’s no need to worry about THC possibly entering your system and showing up on a potential drug test. Although it’s highly unlikely, trace amounts of THC found in hemp-derived CBD oil can theoretically cause a positive drug screening result.
Depending on the process, the resulting product is either large CBD crystals or a fine white powder that resembles confectioner’s sugar. While there may be a slight residual cherry flavor, neither form of CBD isolate should contain a distinct odor or taste. But don’t be fooled by its plain appearance — there are actually a number of reasons to get excited about CBD isolate and all that it has to offer.
CBD isolate can be mixed with terpenes to create homemade CBD concentrates that can be vaped or dabbed. The isolate can also be made into crystal slabs that can be dabbed using a traditional oil rig.
It might not seem as appealing as the well-packaged CBD oil, topicals, or pre-rolls, but CBD crystalline is surprisingly versatile when it comes to consumption, and this pure powder has a number of advantages over other conventional forms of CBD.
As we’ll discuss in detail below under How to Use CBD Isolates, another clear-cut advantage is the many inventive ways CBD isolate can be prepared for use. Whether it’s administered sublingually or mixed with food and drinks, this crystalline powdered CBD works well in a variety of consumption methods.
Decarb gives you more flexibility when it comes to consuming your medicine and provides an alternative to smoking, vaping and oils. Using a proprietary drying method and exacting scientific standards, we decarboxylate (decarb) the cannabis, which activates the cannabinoids (THC and CBD). After a fine milling process, the resulting product has the consistency of flour. When used with our CannaCap capsule product and capsule maker 1 , you now have the option of consuming cannabis the same way you would any other pill — easily, discreetly, without having to smoke or vaporize it. Decarb comes in 3 different products, all ready for consumption: High THC, 1:1 and High CBD.
When fully packed, each capsule can hold up to 0.5g of cannabis. In terms of dosing, it is recommended to start 'low and go slow'.
2 to 3 hours suggested waiting time before consuming more after initial dose
In comparison to inhaled cannabis, ingested cannabis has a slower onset. For this reason, it is recommended to wait approximately 2 to 3 hours before consuming more after the initial dose.
The decarb product is fully activated (decarboxylated), meaning the THC and CBD are ready to consume without heating so it can be sprinkled onto food, into drinks or directly consumed.
Ultimately, the ideal decarboxylation process uses the least heat possible to retain more of the plant’s therapeutic cannabinoid and terpene compounds. Terpenes, especially, can be vulnerable to evaporating off when exposed to high heat.
Decarboxylation ovens feature temperature controls to within plus or minus .5 degrees celsius. Manufacturers can check temperatures on built-in and easy-to-read LED displays and set the timer for ultimate precision and a reliable decarbing session.
What Is the Process of Decarboxylation?
Decarboxylation is a process manufacturers and consumers can’t skip, even if they wanted to. It’s a natural process that can be accelerated and fine-tuned with the right tools and equipment to make delicious butters oils and more. For the best decarboxylation temperature and time management, consider decarb ovens specifically made for cannabis industry operations.
When cannabis matter undergoes the heating process, the cannabinoid acids’ molecular structure changes. When decarboxylated, the acids lose one carboxyl group (-COOH) as carbon dioxide while retaining one hydrogen atom.
Primarily, decarbing methods target cannabinoid acids, also known as inactive cannabinoids, found in the plant’s trichomes. Trichomes are mainly found on cannabis flowers, but can also be found in smaller quantities in leaves and stems.
