Different Types of CBD & How To Chose A CBD Product
Sep 28, 2022
BROAD SPECTRUM CBD (THC-FREE)
Broad Spectrum CBD products contain all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids, and vitamins as Full Spectrum products, except they DO NOT contain any detectable levels of THC. This is because the Broad Spectrum product undergoes an additional process to remove the remaining THC content. All of these compounds work together in synergy, providing more of a noticeable physical and mental effect than Isolate products.
FULL SPECTRUM CBD (CONTAINS THC)
Full Spectrum CBD products contain all naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids, and vitamins found in the hemp plant. These products contain less than .3% THC, verified by third party lab results. Although this is a trace amount of THC, that will not get you "high", you should not use these products if subjected to drug screening for THC because these products have a good chance of showing a positive result for THC. These are the most effective CBD products you can legally buy nationwide, due to the trace amount of THC that specifically helps with pain, sleep, and mood.
HOW TO CHOOSE A CBD PRODUCT TYPE
1. Determine if you can use trace amounts of THC, less than .3% which is Farm Bill Compliant and federally legal, or if you cannot use any THC due to drug testing, personal choice, etc.
2. If you are comfortable with a trace, non-intoxicating amount of THC, we recommend our Full Spectrum CBD products. These provide the entourage effect, where all the plant compounds work together in synergy. They are highly reviewed and they are our best selling products.
4. Oil Tinctures and Softgels, Isolate powders, as well as edibles typically have a whole body effect and many report a noticeable change in mood, anxiety, being calm, etc. whereas topical CBD products will have a direct effect on the target area where the topical is applied ie use topical for muscles/joints and use an oil tincture/softgels/edibles for whole body and mindset.
CBD Isolate is what is primarily seen in the industry, and by consumers. This is isolated Cannabidiol (CBD), and does not contain any other plant compounds. These products will lack the entourage effect, but many people prefer to use Isolate CBD and the feedback is positive. These products do not contain any detectable (ND) levels of THC.
Broad Spectrum CBD is considered better than Isolate CBD because it provides the entourage effect, with the exception of THC. These products do not contain any detectable (ND) levels of THC.
