Types of CBD
Now that we have identified the differences between CBD, Hemp, THC and (daresay) marijuana, let’s talk about the CBD Spectrum. (Just in case you haven’t had a chance to read it)
There are three main terms we will be covering below: Full spectrum, Broad spectrum, or CBD Isolate.
In a nutshell, they are used to define which type of CBD is used in a product. Once the full process of extracting cannabinoids from hemp is complete, we need to refine the extracted CBD depending on what it’s going to be used for. The contents of the refined extract are what determines if the CBD extract is full spectrum, broad spectrum, or CBD isolate.
In very simple terms, CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD, which means all other elements are removed (terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids).
CBD Isolate is great for:
- People who have been recommended to take a high dosage of CBD
- You are just trying out CBD and want to get a sense of how it works in your body without the effects of THC or other elements in the cannabis plant
- People who prefer light or no flavor edibles
- You might be sensitive to CBD Full Spectrum or Broad Spectrum but still want to include CBD in your daily routine.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full Spectrum CBD is an extract that does contain other elements found naturally in the plant including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids.
Full Spectrum is Great For:
- Taking advantage of the full benefits of the cannabis plant
- People who don’t mind consuming a small percentage of THC
- People who like stronger flavors
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad Spectrum CBD is full spectrum CBD minus the THC. Basically, all of the benefits from the full spectrum and just removing one element: THC.
Broad Spectrum is Great For:
- People who want to take advantage of the other cannabis elements without having to worry about THC effects.
- People who are sensitive to THC
