Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum & Isolate

Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum or Isolate CBD?

Lets be honest...There is a lot of information out there about CBD and there are many differences between them. This can be very confusing to the common consumer, but knowing the differences can help you to make a more educated decision on what you are looking for that is best for you.

The main differences between Full Spectrum and Broad Spectrum is a Full Spectrum product is a CBD oil product that contains other cannabinoids including THC, terpenes, and flavonoids. A Broad Spectrum product is the same thing as above but without the THC. Isolate is just that...isolate CBD in it's purest form which is produced by singularly extracting that compound from its environment and "isolating" it from all other compounds.

Full Spectrum CBD is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally occurring in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. The Full Spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils extracted from the plant work together to magnify the therapeutic benefits of each individual cannabinoid. This is commonly referred to as the "entourage effect". Although it does contain THC, you must know it is within the federally legal limit of less than 0.3%. That being said, it is such a small amount that you will not experience the "high."

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 multiple cannabinoids, it can deliver the enhanced benefits of the "entourage effect," without the risk of psychoactive effects of THC.

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. Leaving just CBD behind in the product.

Endocannabinoid System

DID YOU KNOW..

We all are born with an Endocannabinoid System (ECS)? I bet you didn't!! Since it was only discovered in 1990, by Dr Lisa Matsuda. When your ECS in in proper condition it regulates homeostasis across all systems in your body ensuring that they all work with one another.

In other words - optimum balance. Helping your body become aware of changes & respond accordingly. The smallest of stresses can make you feel out of balance. Your body maintains its physical and emotional balance through receptors in the ECS. It makes its own cannabinoids (called endocannabinoids) to bind to these receptors, but there are also cannabinoids in nature (called phyto-cannabinoids), found in hemp. This is why natural cannabinoids in hemp have therapeutic effects on the body.
