What is CBD isolate and how to use it
Updated May 2019
Cannabidiol (CBD) isolate, aka CBD crystal, slab or shatter, is the most pure form of CBD you can buy. The CBD molecule is isolated and extracted from hemp buds from the cannabis plant and sold as a white crystal or powder. CBD isolate is THC free, cheaper than other CBD products and can be used a number of different ways.

CBD isolate benefits:
- THC free
- Cheaper than other forms of CBD
- Easy to measure exact doses
- Can be used to make DIY CBD products
- Better tasting than oils
- Easy to take, less messy than oils
CBD powder vs CBD slab or shatter

- CBD isolate crystal, slab or shatter is easier to use for dabbing, can be used to make edibles, creams, vape liquids, digested or absorbed sublingually
