If you’re new to CBD and cannabis, then you might be asking, what are the different types of CBD, and is there any difference? This is a question a lot of people ask, including our customers.
There are 3 main types of CBD that are being manufactured primarily in the market of CBD products. Full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and isolate CBD.
What is Full Spectrum CBD?
With Full Spectrum CBD, they extract and use all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, and natural oils from the plant, meaning that it also includes Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
The levels of THC that are present in Full Spectrum CBD can cause false positive drug tests, but unable to give you a “high” effect. Full-spectrum is known to give, what they call, “the entourage effect.”
The entourage effect is when cannabis compounds, primarily tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), interact together to regulate the psychoactive effects of the cannabis plant.
What is Broad Spectrum CBD?
Broad Spectrum CBD is usually classified as the middle of Full Spectrum and Isolate. It has the same ingredients and benefits as Full Spectrum but without the THC.
What is Isolate CBD?
Isolate CBD you will receive the highest amount of CBD. Isolate removes all other ingredients, leaving only the CBD. After removed from the other ingredients, it goes through “winterization” meaning all remaining terpenes and cannabinoids are removed. Isolate should not cause a false positive on a drug test and does not produce any psychoactive effects.
What type of CBD is best?
No one type is better than the other. It’s finding what works best for you and your body. Consult your local herbalist or doctor to see which type of CBD will work best for you.
