Hemp is composed of many chemicals called cannabinoids. THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, CBL, are just some of the many chemicals present in hemp. Cannabidiol has become a go-to natural remedy. A study conducted in 2018 revealed that people mostly use broad-spectrum CBD for its benefits ranging from providing stress and anxiety relief to pain management.
CBD products are divided into three categories, Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolates. Let’s learn about their differences to help you choose which CBD category will work best for you.
CBD Isolate is the purest form of CBD, containing up to 99.99%. This pure isolate is often referred to as CBD crystals as a result of the supercritical CO2 extraction method, then grinding it to powder making it available for human consumption. This extraction process makes the cleanest and purest products.
Pros: Great with people who don’t want THC.
Cons: You won’t get the entourage effect.
Full-spectrum is the extraction of all cannabinoids, including THC. This type is high in CBD but also contains flavonoids, terpenes, and other cannabinoids like CBN, CBDV, THCV, CBG, CBC, THCA, CBDA. Many people like the “entourage effect” which combines all the compounds found in the plant. Full-spectrum will typically have less than 0.3% THC.
Pros: You’ll get the best chance of the entourage effect.
Cons: Must be bought from reputable companies. Unregulated products may contain THC levels that can cause a feeling of “high”. 2mg/ml is enough to cause THC’s “psychotropic” effect.
Broad-spectrum CBD is the middle option between isolate and full spectrum. Like the full spectrum, the broad spectrum CBD preserves all the compounds in the extract, except THC. Broad-spectrum CBD is a great way to enjoy the positive benefits of the other cannabinoids with the “high” of THC. Our CBD and CBG oils are now broad spectrum with higher doses which can better help us whatever life throws our way!
Pros: The safest bet when you want to get the entourage effect without worrying about THC.
Cons: Not much really.
Which is the best for you?
Some evidence suggests that full-spectrum and broad-spectrum is the best option but it depends on you.
How would you want to enjoy the benefits of CBD? Plain and pure like the isolate, broad-spectrum CBD’s THC-free benefit or getting a little bit of everything with full spectrum. Whatever your choice is, rest assured that VESL OILS got you covered!
Remember to buy from reputable companies with lab tests posted on the website or better yet, talk to a healthcare representative if you want more information before trying CBD.
