Full-spectrum vs. isolate CBD

Full-spectrum vs. isolate CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) can be broken down into two main categories: isolate and full-spectrum. But what are the differences and how do you know which is right for you? Let’s break down the definition of each of these types. The difference between the two mainly relates to the compounds found in each. 

Isolate: This is CBD in its purest form, and contains no other compounds from the cannabis plant. CBD isolate is in a crystal form and is often ground into a powder. CBD isolate contains only trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the compound that results in a “high” feeling. In CBD isolates, the CBD is extracted from the cannabis plant using various methods such as carbon dioxide extraction, steam distillation, and solvent and lipid extraction.  

Full-spectrum: Full-spectrum CBD contains multiple parts of the cannabis plant such as terpenes, essential oils and cannabinol. Full-spectrum CBD may contain up to .3 percent of THC, but users would have to smoke very large amounts to result in a “high” feeling. Because it is made of pure cannabis flower, full-spectrum CBD may have a higher likelihood to result in beneficial health effects.
