Did you know that the global CBD market is worth more than $2.8?
With a market size that great, it’s not surprising that there are several types of CBD that exist. Although there are millions of CBD products, they’re all made from a few base types of CBD.
If you’re looking for the perfect CBD product, you first need to understand the difference between the different types. Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place; we’re here with a simple guide to all the CBD types you can buy.
Read on to find out more.
All CBD is derived from cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). The type of CBD with the most minor processing is called full-spectrum CBD.
Full-spectrum CBD contains all the parts of the cannabis plant. This includes hundreds of cannabinoids and terpenes. The most significant difference between full-spectrum CBD and other types is that it contains THC.
THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana. However, it’s only allowed in minimal amounts (<0.3%) in CBD products. At a standard dosage, the THC would not have a psychoactive effect.
Although unlikely, if you take a very high dose of potent CBD oil, it is possible that the THC could affect you and show up on a drug test.
Broad-spectrum CBD is similar to full-spectrum, but it has one significant difference. Broad-spectrum CBD has all the THC removed. Although the THC is unlikely to have any effect when taken in a standard dosage, some people prefer to take broad-spectrum CBD for extra peace of mind.
If you have to take regular drug tests for work, a broad-spectrum CBD may be a good option. You’ll still notice all the therapeutic effects of the entourage effect but without any THC concerns.
Broad-spectrum CBD is popular among police, military, and other government workers.
The final type of CBD is called CBD isolate. As the name suggests, this is pure and unadulterated CBD. All-natural compounds, cannabinoids, and terpenes are filtered out of the product, leaving pure CBD.
Many people think that ‘pure’ CBD equates to high-quality CBD. However, this is not always the case. The entourage effect is powerful and not to be underestimated. When you filter beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes out of CBD, you’re potentially missing out on several therapeutic aspects of this naturally healing plant.
