How to Choose the Right CBD Product – Types of CBD
There are three forms of hemp based CBD on the market today:
1. Full-Spectrum – An extract that contains all compounds found naturally in the plant including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. These work together to create the “entourage effect”.
2. Broad-Spectrum – An extract that contains all compounds found naturally in the plant but has the THC removed.
3. Isolate – The purest form of CBD with all other compounds removed.
– Offers the full benefits of the cannabis plant otherwise know as the Entourage Effect where all of the compounds naturally found in the plant work together to better work with your body’s ECS.
– May have sedative effects.
– Can show up on drugs tests due to the small amount of THC (0.3% or less).
– May have a strong flavor or smell due to the terpenes and other compounds.
Best for individuals that have a more severe condition or that want to get the full benefits of CBD.
– Offers the full benefits of the cannabis plant similar to full-spectrum but to a lesser degree since the THC has been removed.
– No THC
-Less studied by researchers
– Like full-spectrum, may have a strong flavor or oder.
Best for individuals with a sensitivity to low levels of THC, people that do not want a product with THC in it.
– Purest form of CBD with all other compounds removed.
– No THC.
– Tasteless and oderless.
– May need a higher dose to get the same effects found in full-spectrum or broad-spectrum.
– Does not deliver the entourage effect that helps you to absorb the product better and works best with your body’s ECS.
Best for individuals who do not want THC or who do not want any flavors in their product. Many people feel that isolate does not work as well for them as Full or Broad-Spectrum CBD.
