TYPES OF CBD
VARIOUS CBD TERMINOLOGY
It is important to understand the varieties and uses of the term "CBD". CBD is the common abbreviation for Cannabidiol. However your CBD product could be Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, or Isolate. There are "hemp oils" available such as the ones you see on Walmart shelves and although they are a healthy food source, it is not the hemp oil you are looking for. There are also many different terms thrown around by companies in the industry, to include "phytocannabinoid rich hemp extract", "hemp extract", and simply "cbd oil" or "hemp supplement".
The important thing is to determine whether you want to use THC Free (Isolate) or Whole Plant (Full Spectrum) products, then verify the potency and purity of that product via certificates of analyses from third-party labs, verify the industry standards we previously discussed here, and then place an order!
Full Spectrum CBD
Contains all naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids, and vitamins found in the hemp strain processed. Contains less than .3% THC, verified by certificates of analyses. Although this is a trace amount of THC, that will not get you "high", you should not use these products if subjected to drug screening for THC and care about your career or job.
Broad Spectrum CBD
Broad Spectrum CBD products contain all naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes, flavinoids, and vitaims as Full Spectrum, except without the trace levels of THC. This is because the Full Spectrum product undergoes an additional process to remove the remaining THC content.
Isolate CBD is exaclty that, isolated Cannabidiol. Quality Isolate is usually 99+% pure, verified via third party certificates of analyses. These products should not contain any other compound, to include THC. UnCanna Isolate is 0.0% THC, verified via labs here.
