Full Spectrum CBD Oil VS CBD Isolate 1

Full Spectrum CBD Oil VS CBD Isolate

There are two main types of CBD used to infuse products:

  • Full spectrum CBD

  • Isolate CBD

Full spectrum CBD oils contain a variety of cannabinoids and terpenes that naturally occur in hemp and cannabis.

As the name suggests, Isolate CBD is the isolated compound with no other cannabinoids, terpenes, or plant matter. 

Full spectrum CBD has the benefit of the Entourage Effect–the synergistic relationship that makes naturally occurring compounds so healing when combined. Each element in the plant has a unique makeup and effect, many of which are therapeutic. This is amplified by the presence of other elements, including those in essential oils, herbs, and other plants. 

Isolate CBD is the best option if you’re want to consume- no THC. In some places, only isolate CBD products can be sold legally due to regulations, stigmas, and uninformed public servants.

As shown in the chart below, each cannabinoid offers different benefits for a wide variety of ailments.

Note: CBD offers most of the benefits of each cannabinoid combined.

Getting CBD into your System

Sublingual doses travel through the sublingual vein under the tongue and enter the bloodstream rapidly.

Effects are felt in about 30 minutes and last 2-4 hours.

  • Oral doses in food and drink take longer to take effect since they travel through the digestive system. This can also affect absorption rates, so dose accordingly. Effects vary but can last up to 12 hours depending on the dose and concentration. 
  • Topicals provide fast, localised relief. Have you ever suffer from knee pain, back pain, or sore muscles, then CBD topicals are for you. CBD can enter the bloodstream topically via the skin. If you experience skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema or acne then you may want to look into CBD topicals. However, there are some other benefits to topicals rather than just applying them to irritated skin areas. Since CBD is an antioxidant, it works just like any anti-wrinkle cream! Effects can be felt within minutes and can last 4 hours or longer.

CBD is most effective when consistently incorporated into your daily routine. The best way to go about starting a CBD regimen is to document your doses and how you feel before, during, and after ingestion.
