What You Need To Know About CBD - Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, Isolate
The CBD industry is booming and it can be confusing with the variety of products that are offered for sale. There are 3 'types' of CBD: isolate, full spectrum, and broad spectrum.
Plainly put, CBD isolate is 99.9% pure CBD and contains no THC. It looks like a white crystal powder. When purifying CBD isolate all other plant materials are removed including oils, waxes, chlorophyll, and others. CBD isolate is free from THC. CBD isolate can be eaten raw, or ingested in food or drinks.
Broad spectrum CBD is a combination of full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate; more clearly, broad spectrum CBD is full spectrum CBD without THC. In making broad spectrum CBD, CBD isolate is added to other cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids.
Full spectrum CBD oil contains CBD, other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, fatty acids, and vitamins. This CBD oil will contain less than 0.3% THC. Other cannabinoids include CBG, CBN, and CBC. The greatest benefits of full spectrum CBD oil stem from the Entourage Effect. The entourage effect describes the enhanced benefits of the interactions of the elements in full spectrum CBD previously mentioned. Basically, the more cannabinoids working together, the better the benefit for the consumer.
Most commonly found, full spectrum CBD oil tincture has many more enhanced applications. Scientist found this full plant extract is most beneficial and the highest quality. Tincture can be used in virtually any way you could imagine. You can ingest it sublingually, by stirring it into your favorite drink, or even cooking and baking with it. Always carefully read labels of any CBD products you may buy and weigh the options.
