What Are The Differences Between CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum CBD, And Broad Spectrum CBD?
Cannabidiol or CBD as it is called by most, is one of the hottest buzzwords for 2019. Many of us have heard of it before, but did you know what there are different types of CBD? So between CBD Isolate, Full Spectrum CBD and Broad Spectrum CBD, which is right for you?
Isolate is essentially the scientific term for the purest form of CBD , which has been produced by stripping it of, or “isolating” it from the other cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and plant parts, that are part of the hemp. CBD Isolate is generally extracted from hemp, because of it very low or non-existent THC levels. This product is ideal for those who work in industries with mandatory drug testing, as it will not show up on a drug test.
Unlike Isolate CBD, full spectrum is extracted keeping all of the naturally occurring oils, terpenes, and other cannabinoids. These terpenes, oils, cannabinoids, and flavonoids found in full spectrum oil all work together to help magnify its benefits. This is generally referred to as the “entourage effect.” One study in 2005 from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Immunology found that subjects administered with full spectrum CBD reported greater levels of relief than those who were administered CBD isolate. It should be mentioned that full spectrum CBD will have low levels of THC generally under .3% to be federally acceptable.
Broad Spectrum CBD is a bit of a hybrid between full spectrum cbd and cbd isolate. Similar to a full spectrum oil, broad spectrum while extracted retains many of the beneficial compounds found in the plant; however like cbd isolate, it contains 0 THC. This is a great option for those who which to receive the benefits of the “entourage effect,” without the possibilities of the psychoactive reactions that may come with THC. This product is also great for those who work in industries with mandatory drug testing, as it will not show up on a drug test.
Every person has their own individual needs and responses to CBD. One person’s body may respond the best to a CBD isolate, while another’s may work best with a full spectrum CBD. The best thing to do is try it out for yourself and make your own decision.
