The Difference in the Hemp CBD You’re Getting Sold
If you’ve spent any time shopping around for CBD, you’ve likely encountered a whole assortment of different products.
Terms such as full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate get thrown around a lot, and if you didn’t know any better, you’d think they were all just meaningless marketing lingo.
We’re here to tell you today that these terms serve more than to help a product stand out from the competition. Products such as full-spectrum hemp flower and CBD oil isolates have key differences that can affect your experience with them.
Over the course of this article, we’ll go into detail into what these terms mean, and help you decide on which is best for you.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD is what you’ll see advertised most, and is what is most commonly recommended. What full-spectrum means is that the product contains the full range of beneficial cannabinoids and compounds found in hemp.
When you use a full-spectrum product, you gain the potential benefits of all the different compounds found in the hemp plant, which then work together through what is referred to as the “entourage effect.”
The “entourage effect” results from a synergy of the different compounds in hemp, which results in increased benefits to what is attainable from other products such as broad-spectrum CBD oils or CBD isolates.
One thing worth noting about full-spectrum CBD is that it will contain a very small amount of THC, though not nearly enough to result in the trademark “high” of cannabis.
What is Broad-Spectrum CBD?
Broad-spectrum CBD is nearly identical to full-spectrum, with the only real difference being that the THC is completely removed. Due to this, you still get a lot of the potential benefits that come along with the other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids found in hemp, without having to worry about any of the negatives associated with THC.
What is CBD Isolate?
Through the use of special extraction techniques, CBD isolates are created which results in a product free from any of anything other than CBD.
CBD isolates are great for people that don’t want to mess around with any unknowns, and simply want the benefits of CBD, and nothing else. There’s no “entourage effect” here, so you may miss out on the full benefits of hemp, but CBD alone does still offer strong potential benefits.
With zero THC, CBD isolates are perfect if you fear you have a sensitivity to THC or don’t want to take any chances of failing a drug test.
