Full Spectrum vs. CBD Isolate
What does full-spectrum CBD oil mean? What does CBD isolate oil mean?
These are common and important questions. First, let’s talk about what full-spectrum CBD oil is. Full-spectrum CBD contains cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids, and other medicinal properties. All of these things are equally as important as the cannabinoid commonly known as CBD and these properties will help you achieve the results you are looking for in CBD oil.
Will It Get Me High?
Full-spectrum oil does contain some THC, which is the cannabinoid responsible for the psychoactive “high.” It, however, cannot contain more than 0.3% THC per law in the United States. This is nowhere near the amount it takes to get someone high. High-THC strains sometimes have a THC content of 30%.
What Is CBD Isolate?
CBD isolate oils have had all of their additional properties besides CBD removed. They don’t have flavonoids, terpenes, cannabinoids, or other properties. Just CBD. Which is fine, CBD is fantastic on its own! It still helps so many people looking for relief.
So, Which One Should I Take?
If are sensitive to THC, live in a THC-illegal state, or work in a place that forbids THC you might want to opt for a CBD isolate. This is because of the THC present in the oil. Small amounts of THC have been able to trigger positive drug tests in the past. Though this isn’t a common occurrence, it has happened so take that into consideration when making your choice.
I don’t care about a drug test. I am in a legal state and I just want relief.
Perfect! Opt for a full-spectrum oil. The properties within full-spectrum CBD oils work alongside CBD to allow for optimum performance in the body. There are more than 100 different cannabinoids within the hemp plant. They all serve an awesome purpose in aiding your body towards homeostasis. Not to mention terpenes, which are not only responsible for the aromatic properties in the cannabis plant, but have been shown to provide anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Flavonoids which are also present in full-spectrum oil not only provide protection for the plant on a cellular level, but have been cited with having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiallergic properties.
