The Three Types Of CBD Oil
If you have purchased and benefitted from a CBD product in the past, you are one of the millions of people who have taken a bold step forward with their health. Baby boomers who lead active lifestyles had led the way when it comes to purchasing nutritional supplements – they are the largest group by far. Boomers know that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
If you’ve been using CBD for any length of time you may already realize that the oil is sold in three main forms:
1) Full-spectrum CBD oil
2) Broad-spectrum CBD oil
3) CBD Isolate
What is full-spectrum CBD?
Each of the three oil types listed all originate from the hemp plant – there are several unique distinctions to make. Let’s talk about full-spectrum CBD oil first. Full-spectrum CBD oil contains trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) 0.3% or less. This amount of THC is required by law. If a batch of CBD ever tests higher than 0.3% THC, it must be destroyed. Many have stated that with full-spectrum CBD, you can enjoy the entourage effect, meaning you benefit from each compound (or part) of the hemp plant. Studies have tied certain health benefits to the entourage effect.
What is broad-spectrum CBD?
There is one main difference between full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oil. Broad-spectrum CBD oil does not contain any THC (0%). Processors put the CBD distillate through an extra step called THC remediation. During this extra processing step, all the THC is removed. There are many who prefer purchasing broad-spectrum CBD products for this benefit alone. A CBD product with 0% THC could also help to ease any concerns with possibly failing a drug test.
What is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate is processed down to a crystalline powder, the processor actually takes some additional steps to get to this point. CBD isolate is used to make gummies, most of these products contain 99.9% pure CBD. The idea here is when you take a CBD isolate you get a higher concentration of CBD but you do not enjoy the entourage effect. CBD isolates are used in various types of CBD products ranging from topicals to edibles.
