How to use cbd isolate crystals

The calculation is pretty simple, amount of mg in CBD divided by the amount of liquid mixed with equals to CBD mg per ml.

Feel free to browse through our new dedicated CBD website where online purchases can be made.


CBD crystals are CBD in its purest form, most containing 0% THC. For mixing crystals, it all depends on what you want the mg per ml to be. CBD crystals can be used in many ways whether it’s mixing with your favourite e-liquid or adding some with your favourite food, you can even sprinkle it in your beverage such as tea or coffee.

Depending on what you prefer, you can either consume the CBD by either ingesting or vaping. One difference is that vaping goes straight to the bloodstream, this means that when vaping CBD, the user will feel the CBD a lot faster than ingesting (30-90 minutes). In addition to this, if you ingest 500mg of CBD, you are not likely to absorb as much as inhaling.


P.S. The more CBD used, the more chance of it recrystallising (isolate separating from liquid) which can clog your coil…

How to use cbd isolate crystals

Controlled crystallization in a COBC is gradual and forms large, uniform particles with high purity and yields and makes downstream processing simpler and more effective.

Cannabidiol (CBD) isolate is hemp-industry nomenclature for crystalline cannabidiol. It is cannabidiol in its purest form and its appearance (when pure) is that of an off-white crystalline solid. It is referred to as CBD isolate because CBD is one component of a multi-component extract that has been ‘isolated’ from all the others.

This method is fast and simple but is not an efficient means of crystallizing CBD isolate as the precipitate forms rapidly and entraps other components. These may include THC, pesticides, solvent, and or any other components that were present in the original distillate. In addition, when CBD isolate is formed via precipitation, the particle size is small and results in the material becoming more compacted and harder to filter effectively, as well as caking on the side of the reactor/stirrer. Due to the small particle size, material is also lost during filtration and washing.

What happens when crash cooling CBD?

Precipitation is rapid and forms a large quantity of small particles, as rate of formation of new solids greatly exceeds the rate of crystal growth. Also, due to the speed of precipitation, other components become entrapped in the precipitate, resulting in a lower purity material; these can include the solvent as well as other components present in the solvent system at the time.

The enhanced control of crystallization pathway in a NiTech ® continuous crystallizer results in a high CBD isolate yield (close to the theoretical maximum) and a high-purity product with a uniform crystal size for simpler downstream processing.

How is it made?

There are three zones:

CBD isolate is often produced using crash cooling (this is precipitation). As demonstrated in Fig 3:
