Various Uses of CBD Isolate Powder
Upon viewing the term "CBD Isolate Powder”, people may wonder why they would buy cannabidiol in this form. The isolate is a sophisticated extract of cannabis which separates the powerful cannabidiol molecule in a crystal form. It is sold in powder and concentrated at over 99 percent pure CBD. CBD Isolates, CBD Oils, and CBD Tinctures all contain the same active ingredient, but each has specific uses. Because isolate is not "full spectrum" like many of our other products, it does not contain plant materials, fatty acids, terpenes, or other cannabinoids. Most notably, CBD isolate separates CBD from THC, the substance that causes the high of casual marijuana use. We will now review several potential uses for CBD Isolate Powder.
Adding CBD to Foods
CBD is fat soluble and mixes quite well when it comes into contact with fatty substances such as oil. Because of that reason, CBD Isolate makes a great additive. You can use it in baked goods like brownies, cookies, and muffins, and other miscellaneous items like salad dressing, candy, honey, and coffee. Have fun experimenting with all the ways to include CBD in your daily diet. Below we’ve included a recipe for CBD infused brownies that everyone will love.
CBD Infused Brownie Recipe
Ingredients you will need:
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- ½ cup flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large eggs
Once you have your ingredients together, you will need to decide how strong your edibles will be. The average adult uses 25mg of CBD per day. Mix 1 g of CBD Isolate into 2 cups of oil. This recipe will only require ½ cup of the infused vegetable oil (~250 MG of CBD).
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix your oil and sugar until it is well blended. Add your eggs and vanilla to the mix and stir until well blended. Take all of your dry ingredients and mix in separate bowl. Then stir your dry ingredient mix into oil and sugar. Grease a 9 x 9 square pan and then pour the batter into the pan. Bake for 20 minutes or until done*. Cool your brownies down completely before attempting to cut them.
*You will know when the brownies are done when the sides start to pull away from the pan. You can also use a toothpick by sticking it into the brownies and pulling it out – if the toothpick comes out dry, the brownies are done.
If you now cut the resulting brownies into 10 pieces, each one will have ~25 MG of CBD. For a stronger batch, mix your CBD isolate into 1 cup instead of 2 cups in the beginning. This will give each of the brownies ~50 MG of CBD. Reserve the infused oil in an airtight jar outside of direct sunlight for later use in future baking adventures.
Creating Your Own Tincture
If you want to save a bit of money, then CBD isolate can be used to easily make your own tinctures. You can build the flavor and potency in the exact way that you want and use the carrier oil that you prefer.
- First, put approximately 2 oz of your carrier oil into a small glass container.
- Heat your oil to approximately 120 degrees by putting that container in a water pot.
- Keep the heat low, and use the double boil method to keep the oil warm.
- Gradually stir in about 1 gram of CBD isolate. Stir until the isolate is dissolved completely.
- Let the oil cool down. While it is cooling, you should stir it slowly until the cloudiness in the substance goes way.
CBD isolate is the simplest form of CBD, and it can be used in a simple way. Because of its concentrated form, CBD isolate can go straight under your tongue as a sublingual. This is known to be the most bio-available method of ingestion for the product, even more so than swallowing it. (Swallowing actually causes a higher percentage of the CBD product to pass unused through the body.)
Taking CBD sublingually is more enjoyable in an oil than in its crystalline form. Some may complain about the chalky mouthfeel. So either crush it to a very fine powder first, or crush it into a powder and follow the previous steps to create your own CBD oil. Plain or in oil, just hold the product under your tongue for a minimum of two minutes. After that, wash it down with water or your favorite organic beverage.
Creating Your Own Capsules
Just like you can create your cost-effective tinctures, you can also create your own CBD capsules as well. Capsules will often have the same ingredients as tinctures with a slight difference in the concentration. All that you really need are veggie caps that you can find at any health store. In order to make your own CBD capsules, follow the directions below.
- Separate the two opposite ends of the capsule from each other.
- Set aside the small end. Fill the bigger end with the amount of CBD oil that you want.
- If you do not have an oral applicator that comes with a measured nozzle, measure it with a syringe.
- Securely bring the two ends together to reseal the capsule.
- When you are ready for one of your capsules, take it with a swig of alkaline water.
Vaping CBD Isolate
While there are instructions available for creating your own e-liquids from CBD isolate, we don't recommend you ever try this at home. With everything that can go wrong, you don't want to risk your health on an experiement gone wrong. If you want to vape CBD, buy your e-liquids from a reputable company with various sets of safety standards.
Make Your Own CBD Salve
Ingredients you will need:
- 1 Cup CBD-Infused Oil
- 1 Ounce Beeswax
- 1 Ounce Refined Shea Butter
- Double Boiler & Wooden Stirrer
- Bali Jars or Metal Tins
Steps to take:
- Bring your double boiler to a light simmer and add one cup CBD oil
- Add ounce of beeswax and stir until almost completely dissolved the add ounce of shea butter and stir until completely dissolved

These are just a few of the ways that you can use CBD isolate to add to health products. Every possible use for CBD isolate you can find online in detail, but you should get your isolate from a trusted source.
