- Full Spectrum CBD and CBD isolate are two common forms of CBD oil.
Full Spectrum CBD
Full spectrum keeps the properties of the hemp plant in tact. In addition to CBD, full spectrum extract includes terpenes, cannabinoids (CBG, CBC), vitamins, fatty acids, and any other materials that are extracted from the hemp plant. Full spectrum appears to have benefits as a result of the synergistic properties between the various components of the hemp plant. Research shows that these plant components interact with one another to create an enhanced effect. According to Entourage Effect, CBD and other components of hemp work together to improve the absorption and benefits felt by the body. Since the natural cannabinoids remain intact, full spectrum oil contains small levels of THC. However, full spectrum oil must have less than 0.3% THC in order to be considered hemp. This is only a trace amount of THC, and therefore does not create a high.
On the other hand, CBD isolate is Cannabidiol in its purest form. To produce this extract, CBD is isolated and then refined to strip out any additional cannabinoids, terpenes, and plant components found in the hemp plant. Isolates contain only one cannabinoid: CBD. CBD isolate is a perfect option for those who seek a THC-free product.
