Wholesale CBD Isolate: Refined, Consistent, and Pure
Wholesale CBD isolate is an essential ingredient for any company in the hemp industry, and for a good reason. CBD isolate is the purest form of cannabidiol you're likely to find from a wholesaler. A high-quality CBD isolate gives you maximum control over the potency and the dosing of every product you put up for sale.
Buying CBD isolate in bulk quantities is an efficient strategy to produce high-potency, concentrated CBD goods that customers will return to time and time again. Keep reading to discover why CBD isolate is taking the cannabis (hemp) industry by storm — and why you won't want to miss out.
What is CBD? (Cannabidiol)
CBD is the second most abundant cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. Unlike THC — the other prominent cannabinoid in hemp — CBD will not get you "high." CBD may even help to counteract or prevent the psychoactive effects of THC content at high enough doses.
Although there are over 100 different phytocannabinoids in the hemp plant, CBD takes the cake by a landslide. CBD is the most widespread because of its long list of science-backed health benefits. Reams of research are coming out every year, shedding new light on CBD's positive effects on the human body. Improvements in sleep quality, relief from pain and anxiety, and reduced inflammation. At the time of writing this, there are nearly 200 active scientific studies in progress, with at least one FDA-approved CBD prescription drug medication in development.
CBD's benefits are wide-ranging, and as we continue to learn more about this remarkable plant compound, the CBD industry will continue to expand. On store shelves today, you'll find an abundance of CBD consumer products spanning CBD edible food goods, skincare and beauty products, vaping oils, devices and cartridges, CBD oils, and hemp-derived CBD tinctures, and much more.
As you can imagine, CBD is making its way into even the most common and ordinary products. For companies looking for a pure, versatile CBD ingredient that can be used conveniently across the spectrum of consumer goods, wholesale CBD isolate is the ideal solution that will exceed your expectations and keep your customers coming back for more.
And with that preamble out of the way, here's what you need to know about wholesale CBD isolate powder and what it has to offer.
People take CBD because of its wide-reaching health benefits. There are well over 100 different cannabinoid compounds and counting, but CBD as an individual component is the most well-known. CBD is also the most well-studied of the cannabinoids, with known therapeutic and additional health benefits such as improved sleep, relief from depression and anxiety, and pain relief.
New CBD research is being conducted every year, and we are continuing to discover new and novel uses for this remarkable plant compound.
What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is the purest, most potent form of cannabidiol available. A high-quality CBD isolate will contain up to 99% pure CBD with zero THC.
Hemp Corp CBD isolate is a pure, THC-free, crystalline powder that contains 99%+ pure CBD.
Why does this matter? The individual cannabidiol molecule is what provides the vast majority of the health benefits that consumers are looking to pay money for. More studies have been published about CBD's health benefits than any other cannabinoid (of which there are over one hundred, remember).
When we separate CBD from hemp's constituent parts (plant substances, waxes, lipids, terpenes, other cannabinoids), we're able to manufacture a pure crystalline CBD powder that can be infused into just about anything you can think of. CBD isolate is near flavorless and odorless, which is another reason why many of the cannabis industry's most recognizable brands are starting to use it in so many products.
The crystallization process entails "isolating" CBD as a single cannabinoid molecule by removing all oils, waxes, polyphenols, and other plant matter — all that's left is pure CBD.
How is CBD Isolate Made?
At Hemp Corp, every extract, isolate, or distillate we manufacture begins with the raw industrial hemp. We manufacture our pure CBD isolate by putting the natural hemp materials through a process of extraction, filtration, and distillation. We can separate CBD from the rest of the components during the distillation phase, leaving nothing but pure CBD isolate.
Hemp Corp's CBD isolates are extracted and refined using industry-leading equipment. This is how we ensure the highest quality and a consistent product between every batch of CBD isolate powder we produce. Our team of experienced technicians uses state of the art processing equipment to produce CBD isolates, broad-spectrum distillate, and even minor cannabinoid concentrates like CBN, CBC, and CBG.
Here's how our extraction process works:
The first step in creating CBD isolate is to produce a raw (or crude) CBD hemp oil extraction. This initial extraction process — using ethanol, CO2, butane, or hydrocarbon — yields unfiltered crude CBD oil. Crude oil contains all of the naturally-occurring cannabinoids from the hemp plant such as CBD, CBG, CBC, CBN, CBE, and several more. Crude is also rich in terpenes and various phytochemicals and plant residues.
Next, the oil is winterized, decarboxylated, and distilled. Winterization is a method of of separating and filtering out unwanted particles and compounds: waxes, lipids, and plant particles are a few examples. Winterized CBD oil is then decarboxylated (“decarbed”). Before the natural cannabinoids from the hemp plant can be used by the body they must first be “activated” through a process called decarboxylation.
Distillation is the last step in the CBD manufacturing process. Using a combination of heat, evaporation, and high-speed separation techniques, we're able to distill our hemp oil to the final product in its consumable form: a potent, 99% pure crystal CBD isolate powder. CBD isolate is what remains when all other components have been removed.
Hemp Corp CBD isolate powder has a much longer shelf life, is molecularly superior and less susceptible to degradation from light and heat.
Which Types of Products are CBD Isolates Best Suited For?
The best CBD ingredient to shop for in bulk quantities is, without question, bulk CBD isolate. Wholesale CBD isolate is the ideal ingredient to choose for virtually any category of CBD product. The reason? As we mentioned earlier, CBD isolate is the purest, most potent form of CBD on the market. CBD isolate is 99%+ pure cannabidiol with zero THC, solvents, or residual cannabinoid compounds.
Wholesale CBD isolate is pure CBD at its finest and most versatile. It is a potent, shelf-stable form of CBD. It is also effortless to use; simply melt it into an oil, or mix it into an oil-based product. CBD isolate is perfectly suited for products such as CBD edibles, oils and tinctures, CBD gummies and softgels, topicals, creams, lotions, and serums, vape devices, and more. CBD isolate has little to no taste or smell, making it indectable to the senses. Hemp Corp supplies wholesale CBD isolate in bulk quantities to companies interested in introducing highly-concentrated CBD into their product formulations.
Types of CBD: CBD Isolate vs. Broad Spectrum CBD vs. Full Spectrum CBD Powder
There are many different ways to produce CBD. Likewise, there are several types of CBD extracts and products on the market. The three main types of CBD available today are: full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. The names of these forms of CBD refer to the methods of extraction and what the consumer can expect in terms of chemical composition.
Full-spectrum CBD typically refers to oils that have been extracted from the hemp plant but have not been refined or distilled. Full-spectrum CBD oils contain all of the naturally-occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds found in the hemp plant, including THC. Full-spectrum CBD is undoubtedly high in cannabidiol, but it also contains various other flavonoids, terpenes, polyphenols, and cannabinoids (CBG, CBN, CBC, and more) proportional to the hemp plant's natural composition.
The name "full-spectrum" is accurate in that this type of CBD contains a complete range of compounds and chemicals — like the colors of the rainbow. This synergy of compounds and cannabinoids is commonly known as the "entourage effect." Full-spectrum is only sold in states that have legalized the sale and medical or recreational use of cannabis because full-spectrum CBD can easily have THC levels that exceed the legal limit in most states (less than 0.3%).
Broad Spectrum CBD Oil
Broad-spectrum CBD is simply another name for CBD distillate. It refers to a distillation method where one or more cannabinoids are removed from the extract solution. A broad-spectrum CBD oil can be processed in many ways to increase or decrease the concentration of specific cannabinoids. Oftentimes broad-spectrum is used synonymously with THC-free, although the terminology is not regulated in the industry.
CBD isolate is the result of the most complex distillation processes. As previously mentioned, bulk CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD powder. Our isolate contains no other cannabinoids, THC, or natural hemp compounds. Hemp Corp provides full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolates that are available for purchase in bulk quantities and wholesale pricing options.
