CBD Crystals; Four Fantastic ways to use them.
No less than 98%+ in purity, CBD crystals are the highest-grade CBD isolates available on the market today. They are a very pure and effective way of ensuring you get a potent dose of CBD, but many people don’t know how to use them once they have been purchased.
In this article we will discuss how to use CBD crystals by highlighting 4 effective ways to enjoy them.
What are CBD crystals?
Before we discuss how to use CBD crystals, let's take a few moments to explain exactly what they are and how this concentrated product is made.
CBD crystals are isolated and purified extractions of the cannabis compound, commonly known as concentrates. Normally, hemp and other cannabis-based extracts contain at least trace amounts of other plant molecules. This includes other cannabinoids related to CBD as well as aroma molecules called terpenes. Terpenes are responsible for the distinct aromas cannabis and hemp plants provide.
Unlike other extracts, CBD crystals are at least 98% pure, meaning that no other substances are present in your CBD. This is the purest form of CBD available on the market and it is incredibly versatile, allowing you to administer it in a variety of different ways.
How are CBD crystals made?
After hemp oil is removed from the hemp plant, it can be further refined to isolate only CBD. To isolate pure CBD crystals, extracted hemp oil is put through a ‘winterisation’ process- or slowly heated to remove fats and lipids. Then, a machine called a rotary evaporator is used to remove any remaining plant traces. The final product is decarboxylated through another meticulous heating process to activate the cannabinoids, making chemicals bioavailable for consumers.
Advantages and disadvantages of CBD crystals.
There are many advantages to using CBD crystals compared to other CBD products. Here are a few:
● Due to the manufacturing process, CBD crystals contain Zero THC. This may be advantageous to people who wish to completely avoid exposure to this psychoactive compound.
● Because crystals are more highly concentrated than other forms of CBD—up to 99.9% in some cases, they produce a more immediate effect than other methods of consuming it.
● You only need a very small amount due to how highly concentrated the product is.
● CBD crystals are versatile, they can be used in many ways.
On the downside, isolating only one cannabinoid removes a variety of terpenes from the final product. Terpenes are fragrant oils that give cannabis its aromatic diversity. Each terpene has its own therapeutic properties.
Terpenes also have a synergistic effect with the other compounds in cannabis - they work together to influence the dominant effects of the other cannabinoids, in what is commonly called the “entourage effect”. Therefore a CBD product without terpenes present may be seen as less effective.
Love Hemp Terpene infused CBD crystals.
As we have discussed, the only real downside to CBD crystals is that, due to the way they are manufactured, the beneficial terpenes are removed. That's why, at Love Hemp, we have developed our high quality terpene infused CBD crystals.
Love Hemp Terpene infused CBD Crystals take CBD isolate to a whole new league. It's not only CBD which boast numerous benefits, terpenes are in fact full of their own optimising properties; you could refer to terpenes as the “unsung hero” of the cannabis plant.
We individually infuse our Love Hemp 99% CBD isolate with cannabis terpene profile molecules, creating an exceptional quality CBD extract, flavoursome and aromatic. They are available in a number of varieties, each offering a unique experience.
The incredibly aromatic and delicious terpenes we use have been extracted from the very same profiles of cannabis plant itself, e.g. OG Kush. You can literally smell the zingy, fresh pineapple in the Pineapple Express and the juicy Watermelon.
How to use CBD crystals.
So, we have established that CBD crystals are a highly concentrated form of CBD. Let's now move on to how to use CBD crystals.
CBD crystals are very versatile, here are four effective ways to use CBD crystals.
1. Mix CBD crystals to create an E-Liquid.
Vaping is one of the most convenient ways to consume your CBD crystals. Discreet and portable, you can inhale them almost anywhere without anyone assuming it is anything other than a normal e-liquid.
Mix up to 200mg of crystals per 10ml of liquid into your e-liquid – they blend well if you aim for a 70/30 PG to VG ratio. Next, heat the PG and VG to around 60 degrees Celsius, this
can be done by holding the e-liquid bottle in a bath of warm water. Then add the required amount of CBD crystals and shake until they are completely dissolved. A quick and immediate way to enjoy your CBD crystals.
Vaping CBD is favoured by many as it offers a quick and efficient method of consuming CBD. During vaping, CBD enters your lungs and diffuses directly into your bloodstream. Because it doesn’t have to make its way through the digestive system or liver, the CBD enters your circulation faster. This means you can achieve the same beneficial effects with a much smaller amount of CBD. Vaping is also relaxing due to the deep inhales and exhales.
2. CBD Crystals for dabbing
The most popular way to use CBD crystals is to “dab” them. Dabbing is when you inhale a cloud of the vapour made by melting the concentrate. It is safer than smoking, as you are technically just inhaling melted vapour of high CBD concentration.
If you want a quick way to use CBD crystals, you can dab them with an oil rig or wax vaporizer, as you would any other CBD concentrate. You can conveniently vape your CBD crystals almost anywhere by using a specialised portable vape pen.
There are pros and cons to dabbing. Dabbing is a quick, convenient way to get a daily serving of CBD. Since CBD is directly absorbed into the bloodstream when you inhale CBD crystals as a vapour, you may find it easier to determine an appropriate serving size when you dab. Just adjust based on how you feel immediately afterwards.
Some cons of dabbing are that it can be messy, and appear suspicious. This is especially true if you are using a dab rig, and may put off some people from trying CBD dabbing. You may instead want to consider using a discreet vape pen to avoid drawing negative attention. There are ceramic and quartz coil options that will provide you with superior flavour and are extremely easy-to-use
3. DIY CBD topical creams.
One of the most underrated uses of CBD crystals is as a topical agent for skin care. You can melt crystals into carriers like coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, or other skincare oils, and then apply them topically like a lotion or balm. Because you create the topical salve yourself from CBD crystals, you can tailor the strength to your specific health requirements, or why not try adding other active therapeutic compounds, like powerful essential oils, that can work alongside CBD to increase the benefits you receive.
When CBD is applied topically, it is absorbed directly through the skin. Cannabinoid receptors are located throughout the skin, the body’s largest organ, making CBD a potential ingredient for a range of conditions. Because it is applied right on trouble areas, the CBD works directly where it is needed the most.
4. Boost the potency of your current CBD product.
Do you already have a favourite CBD supplement but are looking for a way to integrate more CBD into your system?
CBD crystals dissolve very easily and offer a high dose of CBD in a very small amount of product. This makes CBD crystals an ideal choice if you are looking to boost the potency of your current CBD supplements. Just mix and dissolve the desired amount with your chosen product. Gently heating the bottle in warm water will help this process.
