How to Use CBD Isolate Crystals?
January 23, 2019
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.
Here at House of Vapes we offer the 500mg CBD crystals by Harmony, if using this brand of crystals, you would calculate it by dissolving the 500mg in a 10ml, 20ml or even 50ml which give you the ratios of 50mg/ml or 5% CBD (10ml), 25mg/ml or 2.5% CBD (20ml), 5mg/ml or 0.5% CBD (50ml).
We have created a step-by-step guide for when you try to mix CBD crystal with your favourite e-liquid;
- Make sure you are not allergic to PG as this can cause skin irritations.
- Make sure you know the VG/PG combination of the e-liquid you are going to use.
- PG tends to mix a lot better with crystal isolate, dissolve the amount of CBD desired into a PG liquid by either gentle heating or shaking, mix with your favourite High VG liquid.
P.S. The more CBD used, the more chance of it recrystallising (isolate separating from liquid) which can clog your coil…
The calculation is pretty simple, amount of mg in CBD divided by the amount of liquid mixed with equals to CBD mg per ml.
Here are a few examples of the ratios you would get when mixing crystals:
The easiest method of ingesting crystals is by dabbing them under the tongue or mixing with food and beverages. This can be measured by using kitchen scales or eyeballing. This method is a lot less accurate when trying to moderate the amount taken. Isolate powder dissolves and mixes a lot easier with drinks.
Here are a few tips when mixing:
- Best to consume crystals/powder with other foods or after eating.
- Do not consume on an empty stomach, it will be harder for your body to absorb the CBD.
- When ingesting CBD, effects will take around 30-90 minutes to kick in.
- Less CBD will be absorbed when ingesting if compared to vaping CBD
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.

What is CBD isolate and how to use it
Updated May 2019
Cannabidiol (CBD) isolate, aka CBD crystal, slab or shatter, is the most pure form of CBD you can buy. The CBD molecule is isolated and extracted from hemp buds from the cannabis plant and sold as a white crystal or powder. CBD isolate is THC free, cheaper than other CBD products and can be used a number of different ways.
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate is single-molecule CBD. It’s what’s left after CBD has been isolated and extracted from other cannabinoids and plant materials. It looks like snowy-white crystals or powder and it contains no THC.
CBD isolate benefits:
- THC free
- Cheaper than other forms of CBD
- Easy to measure exact doses
- Can be used to make DIY CBD products
- Better tasting than oils
- Easy to take, less messy than oils
CBD powder vs CBD slab or shatter
The only difference between CBD isolate slabs / shatter and CBD powder is the structure of the isolate. It has the same medicinal qualities, absorption rates and effect.However, if you’re planning to do anything with the isolate other than absorb is sublingually (under tongue) or ingest it, you may be better off with one from over the other:
- CBD isolate powder is easier to make homemade CBD products like edibles, creams or homemade vape juices. It can be eaten as is, or absorbed sublingually (under tongue)
- CBD isolate crystal, slab or shatter is easier to use for dabbing, can be used to make edibles, creams, vape liquids, digested or absorbed sublingually
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a naturally occurring cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. It’s a key component of medicinal marijuana and has many medicinal properties & uses.

CBD isolate benefits over oils and other methods
CBD isolate contains no THC
High quality CBD isolate should by definition contain 0% THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) – the cannabinoid responsible for causing a ‘high’.
We recommend buying isolate from suppliers, manufacturers or companies who provide product test results showing no THC content. When it comes to isolate, this is a strong indicator of quality.
Even trace amounts of THC can cause positive results. While it’s uncommon, some have tested positive to a THC test after taking a CBD hemp oil (a product containing
