There are three basic types of CBD products and they are; Full Spectrum CBD, Broad-Spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate. Although they all contain CBD and are gotten from the cannabis plant, there are a number of differences between each type, and your specific needs will determine the kind of product you go for.
- Full-spectrum CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant with all other related cannabinoids and terpenes. This means that you get all the related psychoactive and other effects associated with THC and other cannabinoids present.
- Broad-spectrum CBD is basically full-spectrum CBD without THC. CBD and other terpenes are usually extracted from the hemp plant while excluding THC. This allows the user to experience the full range of healing benefits without the drawbacks associated with a compromised mind brought about by THC.
- Isolate CBD can simply be defined as “CBD isolated from all other compounds” in the hemp plant. It is the purest form of CBD available.
Broad-spectrum is usually preferred to Isolate and Full spectrum because it delivers the effects of CBD, essential oils, and other beneficial cannabinoids without the psychoactive effects of THC. Most states and countries also have laws in place regulating THC, and the broad spectrum CBD helps to avoid potential challenges and legal issues that might come up when traveling with your CBD.
A good percentage of the population is also sensitive to the side-effects of THC, with symptoms ranging from nausea to coordination problems, and broad-spectrum CBD oil allows us to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the classic side effects associated with THC
