CBD - short for cannabidiol - is a substance from the cannabis plant and is used by many people for various reasons. CBD crystals - also called isolate - are very pure and contain up to 99% CBD. Discover this purest form of CBD that exists. Read more…
Opinions differ about the effects of the substance - because everyone has their own intended goal - but it is in any case certain that it is not psychoactive (it does not make you high or stoned) and that it is becoming increasingly popular.
Why is CBD so popular? Simply because of the positive experiences and certainly because the food industry and the medical world are now also open to it.
Why enthusiasts choose crystals
CBD is not only used by the average enthusiast for various reasons, but also in different ways. One of these are the CBD crystals - also called isolate.
The question then, of course, is what distinguishes crystals from all those other possibilities. The answer is quite simple: crystals are pure and contain up to 99% CBD. That cannot be said about the other products (CBD oil, CBD capsules, etc.). Crystals are some of the purest extractions of cannabidiol out there.
The benefits of CBD crystals
The main advantage of crystals has already been mentioned: that purity. In addition, you have a lot of control over the amount of CBD you take in, because there should be no doubt or even anxiety about exactly how much CBD each intake contains. With crystals it is immediately clear: almost the entire intake is cannabidiol.
In addition, the crystals do not have a strong taste. People like this very much, because other CBD products are sometimes experienced as much too intense when taken by mouth.
How the crystals are made
The crystals are produced by various extraction methods, all according to the latest scientific insights, completely legal and this also happens in European countries. So you can be sure that the procedure was carried out professionally and safely.
One of the methods is supercritical CO2 extraction. In short: in this extraction, the material of the cannabis plant is intensively filtered, so that all compounds that are not desired with crystals can be left behind. And what remains is CBD isolate with a crystal shape. That's where that name comes from.
The intake of CBD crystals
CBD crystals can be taken in many different ways. A lot, in fact.
The crystals can be dissolved in oil and placed under the tongue. The mucous membranes in the mouth then automatically absorb the CBD. Or the crystals can be evaporated. Many people use crystals to 'vaporize' them - as it is called by an English term - mixing them with CBD liquid or THC liquid.
Furthermore, the crystals can be mixed with cannabis flower buds, they can be used in tinctures (alcoholic solutions), in smoothies or in other drinks and food. In addition, it is possible to make ointment.
Long story short: there is something for everyone. Crystals are very easy in this.
The correct dosage
While it is not even possible to overdose on CBD - the substance is simply non-toxic - it is always wise to be very precise when choosing the dosage. This way you can be sure that you are getting what you want.
The most important step is to start very slowly. The average dose taken at the beginning is about 10 milligrams, and experts generally recommend between 10 milligrams and 30 milligrams per 24 hours for use.
You can work towards your desired dosage yourself, preferably in small steps. Of course, it is important that you keep an eye on what the crystals do to your body and mind from the start, so that you can judge exactly what is best for you in the long term.
And again: work mainly in small steps upwards, then the control is greatest. And the chance of mistakes is therefore the smallest.
