What is CBD isolate oil?
CBD isolate oil is the purest form of CBD oil as it contains 99% pure CBD isolate. This is highly purified CBD which has been separated from the rest of the hemp plant. In other words CBD isolate contains no other cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids. Just pure, isolated CBD and a carrier oil. Some brands like 365 CBD also add flavour to their CBD isolate oil as a tasty alternative to full spectrum CBD oil.
What is the difference between CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD?
Full spectrum CBD contains many other components of the hemp plant such as flavonoids and terpenes. It will also contain cannabinoids like CBC, CBG, CBN, THCV, CBDA, THCA, and even THC. Of course this tiny amount of THC won't cause a high but it may show up on a drug test.
CBD isolate on the other hand, is highly purified CBD which contains none of these other molecules. Full spectrum CBD contains all the plant's natural wellness components in addition to CBD whereas CBD isolate contains pure CBD alone.

One caveat in this is the emergence of synthetic CBD isolate as opposed to hemp derived CBD isolate. Synthetic CBD is created using some potentially toxic ingredients which should be purged before the final product. Due to this, we advise avoiding synthetic CBD and opting for safer, hemp derived CBD isolate. Nature knows best. At Hemptations you can rest assured that none of our products contain synthetic CBD.
How to make CBD isolate oil
Due to its highly refined nature, extracting and creating CBD isolate requires a few more steps than creating traditional full spectrum or broad spectrum CBD oil. As all the additional components have to be removed it calls for additional equipment and more expertise. Processes such as extraction, winterisation, distillation and decarboxylation are used to achieve this.
Once you have your CBD isolate, simply add it to a carrier oil of your choosing to make CBD isolate oil. Typically MCT is the best for this purpose however you can also use olive or hemp seed oil. Finally if you like a little flavour add some terpenes or sweeteners to taste.
