Difference Between Full Spectrum CBD vs. CBD Isolate

Published on

CBD Isolate and Full Spectrum CBD are commonly spotted when one goes shopping around for CBD oil.  You may have come across products that say “full spectrum” or “99% CBD.” Without knowing what full spectrum means, you might just stick to the pure CBD because it’s the safer choice. While pure CBD has a mountain of health benefits, you could be missing out on what full spectrum hemp products have to offer.

What Is Full Spectrum?

Full spectrum means you are getting the whole plant. This does not mean that there will be THC in the product, but there will be more than just CBD. The cannabis plant has more cannabinoids than only CBD and THC. There is also CBN, CBL, CBCVA, and more. The hemp plant is also rich in minerals, giving even more added benefits.  

Having access to more than just one cannabinoid can actually enhance CBD through something called the entourage effect. What this means is that CBD has been known to work better when accompanied by other cannabinoids.

CBD isolate is all in the name. It is when growers separate CBD from other cannabinoids, acids, and chemicals found in the hemp plant. In it’s purest form it is extremely well tolerated and effective in helping with pain, inflammation, mood, and general health.

Full Spectrum CBD Vs. Isolate, Which One Is Better?

The answer to this question is still up in the air, though scientists are beginning to favor full spectrum. At one point they believed that CBD in isolated form was more potent, but recent discoveries have led them to think that this might not be the case.

CBD isolate still has many benefits and is still the preferred treatment for many patients. CBD isolate is extremely easy to dose making it the favorite method for individuals making their own products. People have been known to make their own pills, edibles, lotions, and creams with CBD isolate to take care of their health in the most efficient way.

It is up to you whether or not you think that you need full spectrum or pure CBD. Trying out both can give you an idea of how each feels for you as an individual. Everyone’s body is different, so everyone will react differently to both types of medication. In our shop we have both options, so be sure to stop by to find the treatment that could enhance your life.
