To be considered CBD isolate, a product must have at least 98 percent pure CBD. Indeed, isolates are so ultra-filtered that they can only be sold as a dry, white powder. A great advantage of isolate powders is that they are odorless and tasteless, which makes them extremely easy to hide in edibles or drinks. CBD isolate is also quite easy to take sublingually because there’s no “grassy” taste.
Of course, since CBD isolate is strictly CBD, patients usually need less product to have as powerful an effect on their body. On the flipside, CBD isolate cannot give users the benefits of the “entourage effect” because there are no secondary compounds.
Because CBD isolate is so highly filtered, it’s usually in a similar price range to CBD distillate. While it costs more to filter out CBD in its isolate form, the less-filtered CBD distillate requires the use of higher-grade hemp strains. Farmers can extract CBD from any hemp plant, but only higher-quality strains contain the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and antioxidants consumers of CBD distillate desire.

One such issue that many bulk CBD isolate buyers run into is the hassle of dealing with brokers. CBD brokers can make empty promises and are out for themselves. Are all brokers bad, no, but there is caution to be practiced whenever you are dealing with one. Be wary of “too good to be true” type deals. A broker will usually also make you sign many documents before you get pricing and details.

According to the 2018 Farm Act, the defining feature of hemp is that it contains 0.3 percent or less of the psychoactive cannabinoid THC. Obviously, since CBD isolate has zero THC content, it faces less legal scrutiny than other cannabis products that contain trace elements of THC.
In Colorado, it’s currently legal to cultivate hemp and distribute CBD products. However, Colorado’s Department of Agriculture doesn’t have jurisdiction outside of the state. Although CBD isolate doesn’t face as much legal scrutiny as distillate or full spectrum products, not every state has the same laws regarding the sale of hemp or CBD.
