As you may already know, there are three main types of CBD. You may already know people use CBD for a number of health reasons, the two most common being pain relief and anxiety. If you aren’t sure which one is right for you, may be this will help.
Full-spectrum, Broad-spectrum and Isolate are the three main types of CBD and they are all created different. Extraction is the process in which turns the whole plant to a CBD product but it is no different for each of these.
With Full-spectrum, you get the “full” profile and it is referred to as the “whole plant” CBD. It has traces of THC, less than 0.3%, but not enough to get you “high.” It is said to be more potent because the “whole plant” includes all the cannabinoids & terpenes the plant has to offer. People describe this as the “entourage effect.” Reported health benefits include anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory and pain relief. One of the best things about Full-spectrum CBD is that it is less processed and more natural.
Broad-spectrum is basically the middle ground between full and isolate CBD. It begins as full-spectrum but goes through a process to remove all THC compounds. Broad-spectrum offers the same benefits as full but with no THC.
CBD Isolate is the type of CBD that is isolated from the rest of the compunds in the plant. It is the purest form and is definitely suitable for first time users. It is also refined so it has no real taste or smell.
If you aren’t worried about a drug test, Full-spectrum CBD is ideal. Researchers of the “entourage effect” (mentioned above) have found the therapeutic effects of cannabis are the most powerful when the whole plant is used. Getting the know the different cannabinoid profiles of these three types of CBD will help you to understand exactly what you’re buying.
