What is CBD?

CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound found naturally in hemp plants. CBD oil is derived from the buds of these industrial hemp plants. The plants used are specially bred to contain high concentrations of the naturally occurring Cannabinoids. The buds are the part of the plant that contain a variety of natural chemical compounds that interact with the body's central nervous system and your endocannabinoid system. Your body already has thousands of chemical receptors that regulate homeostasis and your general sense of physical well-being. When you take CBD, you trigger those receptors.

CBD Isolate vs Full Spectrum vs Broad Spectrum

The Difference Explained 

 

CBD Isolate

In scientific terms, an isolate is the purest form of a compound, which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and isolating it from all other compounds.

CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD, which is produced by removing all other compounds found in the plant including terpenes, flavonoids, plant parts, and other cannabinoids. Isolate CBD contains zero THC. Products using isolate CBD can usually have higher CBD content due to the removal of terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, minerals, and other cannabinoids found in full and broad spectrum.

 

Full Spectrum CBD

Full Spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the hemp plant, including terpenes, essential oils, vitamins, minerals, and other cannabinoids.

Small traces of THC can be found within Full Spectrum CBD. These traces aren't large enough to create psychoactive effects.

The Full Spectrum of cannabinoids, terpeness, essential oils, vitamins, and minerals extracted from the plant work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the "Entourage Effect".

It was previously believed that CBD in its isolated form was more effective than Full Spectrum CBD; however, in 2005, this theory was debunked by a study from the Lautenberg Center for General Tumor Inmunology in Jerusalem.

 

Broad Spectrum CBD

Broad Spectrum CBD is a bit of a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate.

Like Full Spectrum CBD, the other compounds found within the plant are preserved in the extract; however, like CBD Isolate, THC is completely removed.

Because Broad Spectrum CBD contains the profile of Full Spectrum CBD without the THC, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the "Entourage Effect", without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.
