CBD Isolate vs. Full-Spectrum: The Differences and Benefits

cbd isolate vs full spectrum

Know what is CBD Isolate vs. Full-Spectrum Oil. Without a set governance of CBD products on the market, and brands fighting for space in your cabinet, it is easy to get loss in the world of CBD.  The two most common CBD offering on the market is CBD Isolate and Full-Spectrum CBD oil.  

The short answer: CBD Isolate is CBD (cannabidiol) extracted from the industrial hemp plant and refined until the only remaining cannabinoid is CBD. Full-Spectrum oil on the other hand has ALL the cannabinoids found in the industrial hemp plant, including up to 0.3% THC.  It is worth noting that this exceptionally low amount of THC, which is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana is not sufficient to get one “high”.  Therefore, full spectrum CBD oil is non-psychoactive.

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil is King?

So you may ask, well why don’t I just buy CBD Isolate and forego Full Spectrum CBD all together…?  The answer is not that simple.  Studies have shown that a synergy of benefits, known as the “Entourage Effect” is achieved when one takes full-spectrum CBD oil.  Research has initially shown that the other cannabinoids found in the hemp plant potentiate the benefits of CBD. 

Okay, so know you may be thinking that full-spectrum is the way to go… Yes & No.  Given that full spectrum CBD oil contains trace amounts of THC one may test positive for marijuana.  This includes individuals administered sub-standard drug test which only check for cannabis metabolites.   Those individuals concerned about a drug test should definitely steer clear of full-spectrum for that reason. If drug test is not a concern, then yes full spectrum also called full spec CBD for short is definitely the way to go. 

CBD Isolate Benefits!

So, to buy CBD isolate is a total waste of money?  No, after all the main cannabinoid in full spectrum oil is CBD.  CBD on its own has shown great potential in the reduction of inflammation, mood, pain perception, and memory.  According to a great article on Medical News Today the potential effects of CBD Isolate includes boosting the immune system, fighting inflammation, preventing vomiting, reducing or preventing anxiety, reducing or preventing seizures, and relieving pain to name a few.
