23 Jan How to Use CBD Isolate as Part of Your Daily Routine
Versatile CBD Isolate can be consumed in a variety of forms, making it easy to get your daily CBD.
This complete guide to using CBD isolate will give you ideas for adding CBD to your daily routine, including methods for use and creative recipes for unique CBD-infused meals.
What is CBD Isolate?
So, what is CBD isolate? Hemp-derived CBD isolate is cannabidiol in its purest crystalline form. CBD isolate crystals are available from HempMeds® as a fine white powder that contains only the CBD chemical compound, giving you the most authentic CBD experience possible.
RSHO™ CBD Isolate is not synthetic. Instead, like RSHO™ hemp oil, Real Scientific Hemp Oil™ CBD isolate is extracted from non-GMO hemp using supercritical CO2.
The CBD isolate extraction process produces a botanical concentrate that includes the cannabinoids, fatty acids, and other plant material found naturally in hemp plants. The CBD hemp oil is then purified using a proprietary process to filter plant material and to remove excess waxes, producing a pure isolate powder with 99% pure Cannabidiol.
Ways to Use CBD Isolate
CBD isolate powder has no taste or smell and can be integrated into a number of products to infuse them with the benefits of CBD.
Cannabinoids like CBD are fat-soluble, so for edibles and other products taken orally, it is best to dissolve CBD isolate coconut oil or a similar high fat product like olive oil or butter. Because it’s 99.99%, CBD isolate is safe for use by all customers and all ages.
Here are just a few ways to take CBD.
Orally: The easiest way to take CBD isolate is by placing it under your tongue and swishing it around your mouth before swallowing. This allows the CBD to be absorbed by the mouth’s mucous membranes, a fast and efficient way to take CBD.
Vaporizing: CBD isolate can be vaporized in a number of ways. Firstly, it can be dabbed or flash vaporized using a specially equipped water pipe. CBD isolate can also be vaporized in a special extract vape pen that will heat your isolate to a specific vaporization point.
CBD isolate can be added to vape liquid to be used in most standard liquid vape pens. To make your own CBD-infused vape liquid, add 200 mg of the isolate powder to 10 ml of vape liquid. First, heat the vape liquid to around 120 degrees Fahrenheit; then stir in CBD isolate until dissolved. Allow to cool and drip into a vape pen.
Tincture: CBD isolate can be suspended in an oil-based tincture by warming the oil to about 120 degrees and stirring in CBD isolate until fully dissolved. Allow the oil to cool and take sublingually.
Topicals: CBD isolates can be melted into a carrier oil like coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, or another favorite skincare oil. These oils can then be applied topically as a lotion or oil by themselves or blended with additional ingredients like fragrant essential oils.
Oils and Butter: CBD isolate can be dissolved into fatty oils like butter, coconut oil, and other cooking oils. CBD-infused butter can be spread on toast. CBD olive oil can be used in dressings, and CBD-infused coconut oil can be added bulletproof coffee.
Recipes with CBD Isolate
It is not suggested that you cook with CBD isolate at high heat, as it can cause a loss in potency. CBD begins to break down at 329 degrees Fahrenheit, meaning recipes that cook over low to medium heat work best. Below are a few recipes to get you started.

- In a small saucepan, combine strawberries, honey, 1 tbsp coconut oil, and CBD isolate, cook over medium-low heat. In a small bowl, combine OJ with cornstarch – add that mixture to the berries and stir until the sauce begins to thicken and coats the back of the mixing spoon (approximately 8-10 minutes).

How Much CBD Isolate Should I Take?
In the U.S., the FDA is solely responsible for generating Recommended Daily Intake (RDI), defined as the daily levels of a nutrient sufficient enough to meet the requirements of 97-98% of healthy individuals in the U.S. However, the FDA has not yet created an RDI for suggested daily servings of CBD.
In order to comply with FDA regulations, HempMeds® does not list an RDI of our own, nor do we provide a Daily Value (%DV) of CBD for any of our products. Instead, we provide suggested serving sizes, though the decision on how much CBD to take is a personal choice. Many users set 50 mg a day as a starting point.
Because it is over 99% pure, each milligram of CBD isolate represents a milligram of active CBD. Each 1 gram jar of RSHO™ CBD isolate contains at least 990 mg of Cannabidiol, which can be broken down into specific servings of any size.
Accurately measuring out daily CBD isolate servings is easiest when done with a scale that measures small weights in milligrams. This allows you to precisely measure your potency down to the milligram. You can also purchase 10 mg scoops online that can help you accurately use CBD isolate powder without the use of a scale.
Regardless of how you decide to take your RSHO™ CBD Isolate, you can be sure it is the same high-quality CBD that you have come to trust from HempMeds®.
