ORIGIN STORY

The Goods was started by two visionary brothers. Marti, the older brother, while working in the early stages of the cannabis industry noticed a lack of quality and innovation in the exotic cannabinoids space. To bring the same high level of Cali-quality cannabis into the UK and Europe, he started The Goods with his brother, Arta, and a small team of trusted and passionate cannabis experts.

The mission has always been to keep things natural and unique - using the best tech in the market and working with small batches to ensure artisanal quality.

Marti | Co-founder

Meet Marti, the main man behind the brand. After playing a key role in paving the way for exotic cannabinoids in Europe Marti wanted more. Through his obsessive understanding of terpenes, flavonoids, cannabinoids and belief in the limitless potential for cannabis he launched The Goods to the forefront of cannabis development in Europe. He sets the culture at The Goods through his open-source attitude towards sharing genetics, talking to customers via live streams/online communities and offering an enthusiast’s experience in the legal cannabis industry.

5 Ways To Use CBD Isolate

5 Ways To Use CBD Isolate
December 29, 2021

That’s right, CBD isolate is completely legal, 100% THC-free, and can be used in a number of creative ways. Before we break down the ways it can be used, let’s discuss what CBD isolate is exactly, and why you should use it. 

What is CBD isolate

Firstly, CBD (short for cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid found in the flowers (or buds) of cannabis plants. Unlike THC, it does not get you high. 

It has, however, been found to have a whole host of positive health properties. Studies have shown CBD to haveanti-inflammatory,anti-anxiety andantidepressant effects.

CBD isolate is, quite simply, pure CBD. It differs from CBD-rich extracts or concentrates in that all other cannabinoids, terpenes and other compounds have been removed entirely. The result is a clean white powder.

Why use CBD isolate

  • THC-free
  • CBD isolate is completely free from THC, meaning you need not fear any intoxicating effects or returning a positive drug test. This is vital for many people, including those who are sensitive to THC and those who are subject to drug testing for work or other reasons. 

  • Cheap
  • High-quality CBD products can be expensive. For example, a 1,000mg CBD oil is around £60 as standard. 1,000mg of CBD isolate, however, generally costs around £15. 

  • Versatile
  • CBD is incredibly versatile. If you’re the creative type, you can really have some fun experimenting with CBD isolate by infusing it into all sorts. We’ll cover some of the best ways below. 

    5 ways of using CBD isolate

    1. Mix with weed 

    CBD has the unique ability to counteract some of the less desirable effects of THC, such as anxiety and paranoia - which the majority of cannabis consumers experience at some point. 

    For this reason, sprinkling some CBD isolate into your usual spliff, bong or vape along with weed is a great way to make your high more enjoyable. It can also helpprevent short-term memory impairment, which THC is known to cause. 

    1. Cooking

    Homemade CBD brownies anyone? That’s right, with CBD isolate, it’s very easy to infuse it into some butter or oil in order to cook or bake with. 

    All you need to do to infuse CBD isolate into butter or oil is combine the two over a low heat for an hour or two. CBD is oil soluble, meaning it dissolves in oil readily, but not water soluble, meaning it doesn’t dissolve in water. 

    Therefore, you can make a huge range of CBD-infused treats, such as cookies, brownies, chocolate, etc - anything that has oil or butter as an ingredient, basically. 

    1. Make your own oils 

    CBD isolate can also be used to make your own CBD oils. As stated above, you can infuse CBD isolate into any type of oil. MCT, coconut oil, olive oil and hemp seed oil are all great options. 

    Not only will this be much cheaper than buying a pre-made CBD oil, you also have complete control over the ingredients, the process, and the amount of CBD in the oil. You can even add other plant extracts to create unique blends for specific purposes. 

    1. Dabbing

    Dabbing is becoming more and more popular among recreational cannabis consumers. It’s basically a way to vaporise cannabis concentrates and extracts with the use of a bong-like glass pipe known as a dab rig. 

    Dabbing CBD isolate is a fast and efficient way to consume CBD. It can be very useful for people who use CBD for medical reasons and require instant relief. It can also be added to your regular dabs in order to smooth out the high, as described in bullet point no.1. 

    1. Make your own cosmetics/topicals

    CBD isolate can also be infused into oils in order to make cosmetics and topicals. For example, you could make your own CBD balm for treating stiff joints, cuts and bruises.

    Additionally, you could whip together some CBD body cream, moisturiser, or even your own CBD toothpaste. A quick google will give you heaps of ideas for getting creative with CBD isolate. 

    Summary

    If you want a versatile, cheap and potent CBD product, look no further than CBD isolate. 

    It can be added to joints, bongs and vapes as a way to negate the negative effects of THC. It can be used to make your own CBD oil, edibles, cosmetics and topicals. And you can also dab it for instant effects.
