CBD ISOLATE -VS- FULL SPECTRUM CBD CBD isolate (ISO) is the purest and most concentrated form of cannabidiol. It takes effect in the body very quickly and a lesser quantity is necessary to induce desired effects. It is CO2-extracted and further purified to remove unwanted components including traces of THC, terpenes, waxes, oils, chlorophyll and more. This leaves a 99% pure tasteless and odorless CBD powder. Benefits: As the purest form of CBD, it is optimum for individuals who want only the effects of CBD. Being THC-free, products made with CBD isolate guarantee that drug test results will not be impacted. Isolate-based products do not retain any odor or taste from the plant Full-spectrum CBD is a whole-plant extract that contains additional beneficial compounds that naturally occur in the hemp plant, including other cannabinoids, minerals, proteins, terpenes, flavonoids and healthy fatty acids that all work synergistically with CBD to affect your endocannabinoid system. This is known as an “entourage effect” which is nature’s own healing formulation. Formulated from raw extract, full-spectrum products contain the complete hemp plant profile and are often darker in color and stronger in taste. Benefits: There are multiple cannabinoids found in industrial hemp that have their own unique health benefits. These are retained in full-spectrum products. Studies have shown that when all of the hemp compounds are taken together, they produce a higher level of efficiency in users. Because they are less processed, the whole plant compounds are left in the same ratio that nature intended.
