What is CBD Isolate?

CBD isolate is the pure form of CBD, or cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound present in Cannabis plants. Unlike full-spectrum CBD products, CBD isolate does not contain any THC — the psychoactive component of cannabis.


CBD works by acting on the endocannabinoid receptors of the human body. These receptors exist because the human body produces its own cannabinoids, which influence several bodily functions, including: Appetite, Memory, Mood, Pain perception, Inflammation levels.


  • Boosting the immune system (immune-modulating)
  • Counteracting the formation of tumors (anti-tumorigenic)
  • Fighting inflammation (anti-inflammatory)
  • Preventing vomiting (antiemetic)
  • Recovery or regeneration of the nervous system (neuroprotective)
  • Reducing or preventing anxiety (antianxiety)
  • Reducing or preventing seizures (anticonvulsant)
  • Relieving pain (analgesic)

Some Studies indicate that CBD can also influence non-cannabinoid receptors, such as the 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5- HTP) serotonin receptor. Serotonin is a chemical that affects levels of depression, anxiety, and sleeplessness, among others. This may help explain why CBD eases anxiety and pain in some people.
