Full Spectrum Vs. Isolate
Full Spectrum – This type of oil is extracted from Industrial Hemp and specifically leaves all properties and compounds intact. Additional properties such as Flavonoids, Terpenes, Vitamins, Minerals, Phyto-Cannabinoids, and many other healthy nutrients are left in the product, unfettered by human hands. This creates a powerful phenomena known as:
The Entourage Effect
Full Spectrum CBD requires more time, effort, and expertise to properly extract while also preserving the integrity of the Hemp plant. This can be an excruciating process to learn and is a true art form when done properly. A true replicate of Full Spectrum cannot easily be manufactured.
Isolate – This compound is extracted and cooled until it forms crystals. These crystals are then processed into a fine powder. The result is a single molecule compound composed strictly of CBD. No other molecular compounds exist within this Isolate.
**Our Industry is flooded with Isolate products due to the apparent “ease” of creation.
Full Spectrum products have a natural, earthy taste that many people love. This is caused by allowing the Oil to function as intended, with all Terpenes available.
Isolate products, having been stripped of all natural compounds, have to add back flavor to the oil due to the non-existent taste. Many of these products end up tasting somewhat artificial due to this process.
Full Spectrum, which possesses the true power of the plant, have immense health benefits that have only just begun to be researched and studied. One of the great compounds in CBD Oil is known as THC, and though psychoactive, only a small percentage is needed to kickstart the full healing strength of CBD.
Isolate CBD, due to it’s being only CBD, suffers greatly from the lack of backup compounds and is weaker in the long term with no ability to improve upon itself.
Studies show that over time, Full Spectrum Oil will continue to be effective whilst Isolate products suffer diminishing returns. CBD Isolate will only ever be as effective as it’s potency, whereas Full Spectrum CBD improves it’s efficacy as the amount consumed increased.
***3rd PARTY LAB TESTING
Due to the FDA not standardizing CBD, all companies must take it upon themselves to tell the truth of their products. Many of them simply do not do this. Please verify testing with any CBD company who claims to offer CBD, you will be much better off for it.
