What to Expect When Using CBD

If you have never tried CBD before, there is a good chance you will have a lot of questions regarding what kind of CBD products to buy, how much CBD you should be using, and how it can affect you as a first time user. We are going to break it down for you in the blog post, so you can enter into your CBD journey with all the information you need to make the most informed choices about what CBD products will work best for you.

 

Full Spectrum CBD vs. Broad Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate

Full-spectrum CBD is the most complete extract of the hemp plant. It includes; cannabinoids, terpenes and antioxidants. Full-spectrum CBD also contains traces of THC (always below 0.3%), while broad-spectrum and isolate do not contain THC. Broad-spectrum CBD oil contains no THC, but retains the other elements (cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids). CBD isolate is virtually pure CBD (99%+), with all other hemp elements removed. Each form of CBD has its uses and benefits.

Why Does the Type of CBD Matter?

While you won’t get high from Full spectrum CBD oil, it does contain some THC (less than 0.3%).

Full-spectrum CBD oil is extracted with the least processing. This kind of extraction process allows you to truly experience the most complete benefits of the hemp plant, this complete extract produces the fullest Entourage Effect. The Entourage Effect is the synergistic (parts are more effective as a whole) effect of cannabinoids and terpenes working together to produce a potentially more effective CBD experience.

Broad-spectrum CBD oil further purifies the CBD oil and removes THC. You can still experience the Entourage Effect, but this additional purification (elution), removes some of the cannabinoids and terpenes. It is much less hempy flavored and is typically much milder tasting. It is a great choice if you want a more raw CBD without the THC.

CBD isolate is going to be the purest form of CBD that you can find. Because it is flavorless and the easiest to use in manufacturing it is very widely used. The Entourage Effect is absent in isolate although you still will get the benefits of CBD.

In general, we recommend the least processed form of CBD as we have found and heard that it is the most effective.
