The different types of CBD explained
It's easy to be confused by the terms used in the CBD context. However, if you are an avid CBD follower, the chances are high that you have more often than not seen words such as CBD isolate.
This blog post will look at how many types of CBD there are, what sets them apart, and other needful details that will enable you to understand the topic better.
How many CBD types do we have?
Today, there are three common types of CBD. These are:
- CBD isolate
- Full-spectrum CBD
- Broad-spectrum CBD.
What is CBD isolate?
CBD isolate, a type of CBD that is 99%+ pure. It lacks any other phytocannabinoids (chemical compounds of the hemp plant) such as Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the chemical compound that gets the user high.
CBD isolate would easily be the best option for budding Cannabidiol consumers who wish to benefit from the researched merits of CBD without using any level of THC.
Another reason why some users prefer CBD isolate is there would be no worry about failing a drug test. Today, among the everyday CBD isolate products you may find include the Flavoured CBD oil products from Incr-edibles.
What is full-spectrum CBD?
Full-spectrum CBD refers to a form of CBD that harbours all the chemical compounds produced by the hemp plant. These include but are not limited to THC, CBG (Cannabigerol), and terpenes.
For any CBD product to be legal in the UK, the starting point is to have not more than 0.2% THC.
Full-spectrum CBD is ideal for consumers who hope to benefit from the entire hemp plant chemical compounds and those who rarely undergo drug tests.
Another reason why some people opt for full-spectrum CBD products is because of the entourage effect.
The entourage effect refers to how different chemical compounds of the hemp plant work synergistically to bring more enhanced merits to the user.
One product that offers a combination of the entire world of hemp chemical compounds is our 10mg and 30mg Full Spectrum Soft Gel Capsules (CBD). If CBN, CBG, terpenes, and negligible traces of THC matter the most to you, then it would be worth it for you to have a glance at these.
What is Broad-spectrum CBD?
Broad-spectrum CBD refers to Cannabidiol that generally lacks THC but contains all the other cannabinoids and terpenes of the hemp plant.
However, there can be instances where a Broad Spectrum CBD product may contain small traces of THC. With this in mind, we would advise that you ask any vendor to confirm this if work-based drug testing is a possibility.
This particular type of CBD best fits users who wish to benefit from the various chemical compounds such as Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabinol (CBN), CBD, and terpenes.
It's worth it to note the different types of CBD and that which is best for you. Do you want CBD only? CBD isolate has your back. Do you love all that the entire hemp plant has to offer? Full-spectrum CBD is there for you.
If, however, you prefer to avoid products containing THC, but like the inclusion of other chemical compounds described, then none other than broad-spectrum CBD would fit your needs best.
