What is the difference between CBD isolate, Broad Spectrum CBD, and Full Spectrum CBD?
CBD isolate, Broad Spectrum CBD, and Full Spectrum CBD are different types of CBD products. They differ in their composition and the presence of other cannabinoids, terpenes, and compounds.
CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD that contains only cannabidiol (CBD) and no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or plant compounds. It is made by extracting CBD from the hemp plant and then further refining it to remove all other plant materials.
Broad Spectrum CBD contains CBD along with other cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds, but with no THC. Broad spectrum products are made by removing THC from the full spectrum extract, while preserving the other beneficial plant compounds.
Full Spectrum CBD contains all of the cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant compounds found in the hemp plant, including trace amounts of THC (less than 0.3% by law in the US). This means it has the potential to produce the “entourage effect,” which is the synergistic interaction between all of the compounds in the hemp plant.
In summary, CBD isolate contains only CBD, broad spectrum contains CBD and other compounds except THC, and full spectrum contains all of the compounds found in the hemp plant, including THC (although in trace amounts). The choice between the three types of CBD products depends on personal preference and individual needs.
