Information about the drug
The cannabis industry is one of the most exciting and fastest growing in the natural health sector. As regulations regarding the plant and its commercial use change around the world we are seeing new hemp products on the market.
At the moment, the most popular of these is cannabidiol oil, which is better known as CBD oil. With so many new and different CBD oils available. Choosing one can be difficult and confusing. With terms such as whole plant extract, full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolate. In this page, we’ll discuss the difference between two commonly used terms. Full spectrum CBD oil and CBD isolate, it will help you make your decision.
Not all CBD oils are created equal and the terminology can be confusing. E.g. as the difference between CBD isolate and full spectrum CBD.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is not a heady molecule found in cannabis. It is one of the many cannabinoids that can be extracted from cannabis. But due to its widespread medical use and availability, it has become more popular in the market than others. Because CBD does not give the consumer the famous high that psychoactive marijuana (“marijuana”) is known for. It usually comes from industrial hemp (Cannabis Sativa L). The name given to hemp plants with less than 0.2% THC, which is often grown for CBD oil.
What is CBD Full Spectrum Oil?
The cannabis plant contains hundreds of different phytochemicals, including cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds. Full spectrum CBD oil or hemp oil usually refers to foods that contain not only CBD but other plant molecules as well. This version of CBD oil is minimally refined, leaving most of the cannabinoids and terpenes intact.
Full spectrum, sometimes also referred to as “whole plant”, means that a complete plant extract is included. The full spectrum provides more plant molecules in natural proportions and quantities.
While there is still some work to be done, there are indications that cannabinoids and terpenes are working together to influence each other. This synergistic effect is called the entourage effect. And CBD has been found to work with THC to reduce the enhancement effects and CBD with its own cannabinoid receptors.
What is CBD Isolate?
Cannabidiol itself has been the subject of a lot of research because it stands out from the crowd, which seems to have the greatest therapeutic value.
CBD insulated products are usually labeled as 99% or more pure CBD, depending on the form in which they are found. As the name suggests, these products have been isolated down to the CBD molecule itself. They have no other active ingredient and are only intended to deliver therapeutic doses of CBD isolated from other cannabinoids and terpenes.
By itself, CBD isolate is a white powder that may be available to consumers. Most often, isolates are mixed with a carrier oil to be made into tinctures or placed in capsules, foods such as jelly beans, topical ointments, and so on. They are then used as a product containing full spectrum hemp extract.
What is Broad Spectrum CBD?
Broad spectrum foods are the middle link between full spectrum and CBD isolate. This broad spectrum product is rich in CBD, contains absolutely 0% THC, but contains several other cannabinoids, terpenes and similar potentially beneficial compounds that the isolate lacks.
Hemp undergoes various extraction processes, often CO2-based, to produce a full spectrum cannabis extract. This extract can be further refined to provide CBD isolate or broad spectrum products. In some cases, commercial broad spectrum products are also made by isolating the CBD isolate and mixing the full spectrum in small amounts to add terpenes and additional cannabinoids.
We always recommend that you consult third-party lab test results if you want to understand what is actually in your products. Visit brand websites and speak with customer service representatives to learn more about how their products are manufactured. If they are not transparent about their supplements, other brands may be better choices.
Comparison of CBD Isolate to Full Spectrum CBD
CBD and other cannabinoids have therapeutic benefits in humans thanks to our endocannabinoid system, a range of cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2) throughout the body. These receptors respond to the cannabinoids produced by our body, which are molecularly very similar to the cannabinoids from cannabis.
Full spectrum CBD contains more cannabinoids and other natural compounds, while CBD isolate may be better for people who need a strong dose of cannabidiol alone.
Full spectrum CBD oils have the advantage of being rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, and providing broader health coverage. A recent study found that the synergistic effect of full spectrum CBD oil was superior to that of the isolate in effectively treating inflammation. Terpenes themselves have tremendous potential for human health and should not be taken lightly.
CBD isolates make it easy for users to get large amounts of CBD. The lack of flavor can also make the isolate a better choice for CBD cooking. Or mixing with some CBD smoothies. CBD isolating powder can also be an attractive option for making CBD products for personal use. E.g. as homemade CBD massage oil.
Isolates can sometimes be more expensive than full spectrum CBD. Isolates undergo more refining and require more plant matter to achieve high levels of excreted cannabidiol.
Some research suggests that the full spectrum of CBD may be more effective. if possible, consult your doctor for additional advice.
