What is The Difference Between Full Spectrum and Isolate CBD Products?

This is perhaps one of the biggest questions asked, especially those who are new to CBD products. Many products and websites mention these terms frequently when describing CBD products. But what is Full Spectrum CBD? What is Isolate CBD? We will discuss the differences and how both are applied & benefits associated with each.

FULL SPECTRUM CBD – Generally speaking, this terms refers to products that contain CBD AND certain terpenes & other cannabinoids. Other cannabinoids could be CBG, CBC, CBD, CBDa, and of course THC. Full Spectrum CBD only contains trace amounts of THC – only 0.3% at most. The greatest benefit of Full Spectrum CBD products is the interaction of all these cannabinoids and terpenes which work together and boost each other to give you truly the full benefit of the plant.

When searching for CBD products you may come across something called “Broad Spectrum” CBD. This term refers to a Full Spectrum CBD with one or more cannabinoid removed or extracted, usually THC.  You can ask for detailed lab results to see exactly what the product contains, and what was extracted.

ISOLATE CBD – These CBD products are normally labeled as Pure CBD or 99% CBD.  CBD isolate is exactly what it sounds like – isolated. These products contain nothing but one cannabinoid – CBD all alone. Purity of CBD Isolates is extremely important. 99.9% pure CBD isolate is what you want. There is some that have lower purity such as 99.1% pure and those could contain minuscule traces of other cannabinoids.

Most studies and research shows that Full Spectrum CBD has the most benefits and users prefer it over Isolate CBD products. It has been shown that the interactions and boosting of the different cannabinoids is what truly gives CBD products their powers.  CBD Isolate products are great as addition and mixers to other naturally occurring particles. They are also great products in case of a very rare allergy to one particular cannabinoid.  Here at Smart CBD Shop most of our products are Full Spectrum CBD. If we sell any Isolate CBD products it is clearly labeled as such so you always know what you are getting.
