When choosing to buy CBD oil for the first time, it’s normal to have questions, especially when there are so many variants around.
One of the most common questions we are asking about our products, is what does CBD isolate mean? And what is the difference between CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD.
Read on below to find out the answers.
There are a few key differences between CBD isolate, broad spectrum CBD, and full spectrum CBD.
CBD isolate is a type of CBD product that contains only the cannabidiol compound, with all other compounds (including THC) removed. This means that CBD isolate is completely free of THC and provides a pure form of CBD that is versatile and can be easily added to other products.
Broad spectrum CBD, on the other hand, contains a range of other compounds found in the cannabis plant, including a variety of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. However, like CBD isolate, it is completely free of THC. This means that it offers the potential benefits of the entourage effect (the synergistic effect of all the compounds in the cannabis plant working together), without the potential for psychoactive effects.
Full spectrum CBD, meanwhile, contains all of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, including THC. This means that it offers the potential benefits of the entourage effect, but it also carries the potential for psychoactive effects.
Overall, the main differences between these types of CBD products are the presence or absence of THC and the number of other compounds they contain. CBD isolate is pure CBD with no other compounds, broad spectrum CBD contains a range of other compounds but no THC, and full spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, including THC.
