Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum And Isolates
CBD is one of the natural cannabinoids of the industrial hemp plant.
These and the other plant cannabinoids such as THC, THCA, CBDA, CBG, CBGA, and CBN, in combination with the terpenes and minerals from the Cannabis Sativa L. plant, provide the benefits of a full-spectrum CBD oil. Full-spectrum keeps the full properties of the hemp plant intact. By retaining all vegetable components, the so-called entourage effect is created.
In several countries in the world, the cannabinoid THC is banned or only allowed in very small amounts. THC is the cannabinoid that users can get “high” from. However, the permitted amounts of THC in the form of CBD oil can never cause a “high” feeling. As soon as the THC cannabinoid is removed from the composition, it is referred to as a broad spectrum CBD oil.
With an isolate, all cannabinoids and other substances present have been removed except for the cannabinoid CBD. Unfortunately, we see many products on the market that consist of CBD in isolate form. The effect of these products has not been proven, so it is better not to use them.
A study by the Lautenberg Center for General and Tumor Immunology, Department of Medicinal and Natural Products, Institute for Drug Research, The Hadassah Medical School, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem - Israel, published in 2015, examined the effectiveness of isolated CBD extracts versus whole plant extracts.
It turned out that CBD full spectrum continued to relieve inflammation as the dose was increased and, for example, is much more effective than CBD isolate in relieving pain.
