More and more people around the world started to use CBD products. CBD, one of the 113 cannabinoid compounds present in the cannabis plant has so many medicinal properties that help in the treatment of many of the health disorders like stress, anxiety, depression, pain, seizures, nausea, insomnia, etc.
People still have doubts about which type of CBD they should be using to get relief from the health disorders they are suffering. There are mainly three types of CBD that are available in the market. They are full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate.
As the name suggests, the full-spectrum CBD contains all the compounds present in the cannabis plant, including THC. But the major cannabinoid present in full-spectrum will be CBD. Full-spectrum CBD is mainly extracted from the hemp plant rather than marijuana because of the high CBD amount of CBD present in the hemp plant.
The THC present in the full-spectrum CBD will be less than 0.3 %, which is not enough to create a euphoric sensation. All the cannabinoids and other essential compounds in the full-spectrum CBD oil, such as terpenes, flavonoids, vitamins, proteins, etc. work together to offer full-body benefits, which is known as the entourage effect.
Just like full-spectrum CBD, broad-spectrum CBD oil is also created from the whole hemp plant extracts, except THC. After the extraction of the cannabinoids and other compounds from the roots, stems, flowers, and leaves of the hemp plant, THC is separated and removed from the extract.
Broad-spectrum CBD is very beneficial for those who cannot take THC into the system but need the whole plant benefit. Even though broad-spectrum CBD oil also offers an entourage effect, it is not as effective as that of full-spectrum CBD because of the lack of THC.
CBD isolate is the highly concentrated form of CBD, which typically comes in the form of crystals or powder. Manufacturers mainly use the CO2 extraction method for making CBD isolate. This extraction process removes all the other cannabinoids and other essential compounds from the plant material and leaves behind a CBD extract that is 99 % pure.
CBD isolate is the best choice for those who want highly potent CBD for getting relief from health disorders immediately. Recent studies have found that other cannabinoids such as CBG and CBN can also be isolated from the hemp plant. The use of CBD isolate does not fail you in a drug test because it lacks THC and most of the drug tests only look for THC in your blood.
