At 99%+ CBD, Isolate is the purest form of CBD available. The hemp plant contains a low concentration of THC, so CBD Isolate is typically extracted from it instead of the marijuana plant. CBD Isolate is produced by removing all other compounds from the plant – terpenes, flavonoids and other cannabinoids, including THC – to leave just the CBD for the consumer. This form of CBD is best used for those that are concerned with drug testing at their place of employment or have a sensitivity to THC, and do not need the benefits of other cannabinoids.
2) The “Full” Effect | Full Spectrum CBD
The most commonly purchased CBD oil in the market is Full Spectrum CBD. This form of CBD allows the consumer to receive a “full spectrum” of cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils and even trace amounts of THC from the plant that are pulled out together during the extraction process. The combination of these components is called the “entourage effect.”
Because of the “entourage effect,” many people choose this form of CBD. In comparison to CBD Isolate, it is more robust oil due to the power-packed combination of components from the plant. There is a minimal amount of THC (compliant – less than 0.3%) found in Full Spectrum CBD because it is not removed during the extraction process. Full Spectrum CBD is best for those that want the full benefits of the entourage effect and do not mind trace amounts of THC in their CBD product.
3) All CBD Non detectable THC- Broad-spectrum CBD
Broad Spectrum CBD is a form of cannabidiol that contains terpenes and a variety of cannabinoids to create a “broad spectrum” of naturally occurring compounds. In looking at the composition of Broad Spectrum CBD, it is a mix between Full Spectrum CBD and CBD Isolate. Similar to Full Spectrum CBD, the user is getting the benefits of the “entourage effect” because it contains multiple cannabinoids.
With Broad Spectrum CBD, it may contain non-detectable levels of THC. This extraction of CBD is best for those that want more than just CBD Isolate, but are either hesitant to have any THC in their product or live in states with strict THC laws.
4) What is CBD? CBD (Cannabidiol), is a chemical found in marijuana. CBD doesn't contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient found in marijuana that produces a high.
5) What is CBD and why is it legal? A general starting point in federal CBD-legality: If CBD comes from hemp, it is legal; if CBD comes from marijuana, it is illegal. Although hemp-based CBD might be federally legal, some states still consider any cannabis product illegal.
6) Is CBD oil a drug? Is CBD a medicine? Scientists are still learning about how CBD affects the body. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Epidiolex, a medicine that contains purified CBD from hemp, to help treat rare seizure disorders. The FDA has concluded that this drug is safe and effective for this intended use.
7) Is CBD oil addictive? As cannabidiol is non-psychoactive, it's not addictive or habit-forming in itself. The safest course for getting the medical benefits of marijuana is to use CBD oil by itself.
8) CBD vs CBN. Cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN) are two of the more than 100 types of natural chemical components called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. You may have heard of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive chemical in marijuana that produces a high. But unlike THC, CBD and CBN are dubbed as milder drugs. That means they are non-psychoactive and don’t alter your mind. Instead, they’re touted for their medical benefits. However, they’re not the same. Though CBD and CBN interact with the same receptors in your body, they produce different effects,
9)What is CBG? CBG stands for cannabigerol — a cannabinoid found in mariuana and hemp. All cannabis plants make CBG. The difference between hemp and marijuana lies in how each plant processes CBG. Marijuana plants synthesize more enzymes that convert CBG to THC, whereas hemp has more enzymes that convert CBG to CBD. All cannabinoids come from the acidic form of CBG — cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). CBG is non-psychoactive with some similar features to CBD and THC due to its interaction with cannabinoid receptors. While it won’t get you high, it can produce a mild cognitive effect similar to delta 8 THC. You may feel more in-tune or focused on whatever you’re working on without overstimulating your brain too much.
10) What is THC? THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). What is the difference between THC and CBD? CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. Though similar in structure and what they may help treat, the most important difference is that THC will cause a person to experience a high while CBD will not.
11) What are Endocannabinoids? Endogenous cannabinoids, or endocannabinoids, are naturally occurring, lipid-based neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers in the body that send signals between nerve cells. Endocannabinoids system, which involves regulating a variety of functions, including sleep, appetite, pain, sensation, and immune system response.
12) What is Hemp? Hemp, or industrial hemp, is a botanical class of Cannabis sativa cultivars grown specifically for industrial or medicinal use. Although chemotype I cannabis and hemp (types II, III, IV, V) are both Cannabis sativa and contain the psychoactive component tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), they represent distinct cultivar groups, typically with unique phytochemical compositions and uses. Hemp typically has lower concentrations of total THC and may have higher concentrations of cannabidiol (CBD), which potentially mitigates the psychoactive effects of THC.
13) What are the side effects? Though it's often well-tolerated, CBD can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other medications you're taking, such as blood thinners. Speak with your Doctor before you use any products containing CBD.
