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.
Isolate CBD is the purest form of CBD available, as it doesn’t contain traces of other cannabinoids, terpenes or flavonoids found in the cannabis plant. Because isolates are concentrated CBD, they are highly recommended for people who specifically require higher doses of CBD, and athletes who undergo regular drug testing and are wary of substances they use.
Isolate CBD also has little to no taste and odor, allowing it to be used in a variety of ways while retaining the taste of your preferred creation.
