Many people might take these three types of CBD to be similar to each other, but they are distinguishably different. Depending on the properties of the CBD, a person shopping for them can have a tough choice to make. These three different types of CBD are used in the products which determine the best suitable match for its user.
In order to decide that, it is mandatory to know the main differences between 0% THC vs. full spectrum vs. broad where 0% THC is also known as CBD isolate.
Where does CBD come from?
The cannabis plant contains a chemical component called Tetrahydrocannabinol, or for easier use of terms THC. This compound is basically a hallucinogen and is responsible for gushing, a heavy blood flow up to your over- working and overly-stressed brain and relaxes it. Although THC calms the mind down but it also distorts reality so that everything appears happier and more peaceful.
Well as it turns out THC isn’t the only compound which is found in the cannabis plant. There’s another compound called CBD which stands for Cannabidoil. Both THC and CBD are extracted from the same plant, but where one of the chemical can get you ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ because it’s a psychoactive compound, the other ‘CBD’, has properties that can give you a lot of health benefits without making you lose your senses.
And that is the CBD which the companies make according to its extraction, strain and purpose of use in the products. The classification of CBD falls in the range of a colored spectrum that helps customers the best one for them-selves.
CBD Isolate/0% THC
A CBD isolate is extracted from the Hemp plant in its purified form with almost no traces of THC. That is why it also goes by the name of 0% THC. The process of producing CBD in this form involves a method of extracting it alone from its components in the plant. It is the purest form of CBD available for use without its other existing cannabinoids. But will not give the full benefits of the hemp plant.
As the name already suggests, a full spectrum CBD is when the compound is extracted from the Hemp plant along with all the other components with it. These can be flavonoids, terpenes, oil and everything else that is naturally found in the parts of the plant is extracted in the process for use.
It also contains THC which can cause some legal problems upon purchase.
According to a study in 2005 it was found out that a full spectrum CBD has more therapeutic effects and offered more benefits to the health. Since it has majority of the healing parts of the hemp plant, its results were highly effective.
Broad spectrum CBD can be simply known as the best of both full spectrum CBD and isolate CBD. The product that claims to be of broad spectrum CBD will contain most of the components as it is in the full spectrum but will have zero THC in it as with the case of isolate CBD.
Broad spectrum CBD can give you the advantages of experiencing wellness through CBD without getting high on the non-existent THC.
