3 Easy Cannabinoid Isolate Recipes
Cannabinoid isolates are a new and exciting topic in the CBD market because they provide an easy way to experience focused, therapeutic results. Isolates only contain one cannabinoid, making it the most versatile cannabinoid product. Four of the most common isolates available today are:
CBD Isolate - most often used to assist with general health and wellness*
- CBD stands for "cannabidiol" and is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It has been shown to support your body's naturally occurring endocannabinoid levels, allowing the ECS to function properly by regulating mood, appetite, memory, digestion, respiration, perceived sensations of pain and stress, and sleep.*
- CBN Isolate - most often used to assist with sleep*
- CBN stands for "cannabinol" and is another cannabinoid found in small concentrations in the hemp plant. This isolate is most often sold as a sleep aid. Anecdotal evidence shows CBN could be a powerful sedative when taken in large doses.* This cannabinoid is most similar to THC but without the psychoactive effect.
- CBG Isolate - most often used to assist with everyday stress*
- CBG stands for “cannabigerol.” This is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid of the hemp plant that assists our brain and nervous system when experiencing stress or anxiety.* CBG is also found to support inflammation reduction.* One interesting fact about CBG is that CBGA (the acidic form of CBG) is the precursor to several other cannabinoids. As it breaks down, it forms CBG, CBD, CBC, and THC.
- CBC Isolate - most often used to assist with pain*
- CBC stands for “cannabichromene.” This powerful cannabinoid found in the hemp plant is highly effective when targeting the perception of pain found in our body's nervous system and organs.*
With cannabinoid isolates, the possibilities are endless! Because isolates are tasteless and odorless, they can be added to almost any recipe. In this blog post, we provide three easy recipes that you can try today to experience the benefits of cannabinoid isolates.
Hint: All isolates in these recipes can be swapped out for any isolate of your choosing, depending on your individual needs.
