When buying a hemp CBD supplement, it's very important to know what to look for. The quality of the hemp CBD product depends on the parts of the hemp plant where the CBD is derived from, extraction process and types of carrier oil used for the delivery of CBD into the bloodstream to say the least. Here are the 3 types of hemp derived CBD.
What Are The Different Types of CBD?
3 types of CBD derived from hemp
#1 Full Spectrum CBD contains all the beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids including trace amounts of THC. The legal amount of THC is 0.3% in order to be legal for sale in all 50 states. This trace amount of THC is not enough to give the “high” effect. Instead, the THC that is naturally occurring in the hemp plant gives it an “entourage effect” where all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids along with trace amount of THC synergistically enhances the potency and effectiveness of the product.
#2 Broad Spectrum CBD is similar to Full-Spectrum CBD except that it involves an additional step in the process to remove the THC. This additional processing to remove the THC could potentially destroy some of the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids resulting in a less superior product.
#3 CBD Isolate is 99% pure CBD in a crystalline powder form where all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids have been removed. Without the entourage effect, CBD isolate is considered less effective. However, it has its place in CBD-infused foods and drinks.
