    Has anyone tried to dissolve CBD Isolate in water-based formulas?
    It disperses but you can still feel the small crystals in the formula. 

    What do you recommend using to solubilize it?

    Your best bet is to puchase water-soluble CBD.  Creating water-soluble CBD is not an easy task and there are a handful of companies that specialize in making water-soluble CBD for beverages and other applications.

    The water-soluble CBD is extremely expensive which is why the client wants to see if we can somehow get the isolate to work.

    The companies that are active in this field have spent considerable time and money working exclusively on developing stable water-soluble CBD.  It is very difficult to do which is why water-soluble CBD is expensive.  I honestly do not think your probability of success is very high … certainly not something I would undertake.
