Get to know the types of CBD

CBD or cannabidoil is a compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant and can be derived from both non-hemp and hemp plants. The CBD we focus on, and recommend through our product offerings, comes from the hemp plant, which is defined as having no more than 0.3% THC per dry weight (stated in the Farm Bill that was passed in 2018). There are three main types of CBD and each offer a little something different. 

1. Full-Spectrum: CBD that contains other compounds that are naturally present in the plant. These include terpenes, oils, flavonoids, other cannabinoids and sometimes trace amounts of THC. The combination of these elements along with CBD have shown in some studies to work synergistically and provide enhanced therapeutic benefits (when compared to CBD by itself).

2. Broad-Spectrum CBD: similar to full-spectrum but undergoes a more rigorous extract process which removes almost all of the THC. 

3. CBD Isolate: As the name states this is an isolate of pure CBD. It does not contain any of the other plant compounds which are found in full and broad spectrum. 

Many factors go into deciding which types of CBD works best for your specific wants and needs. Some key things to think about are what are you using it for, how are you consuming it and what are the outcomes you are hoping for?  Some resources to learn more are below and we encourage you to explore the world of CBD and what it has to offer you.
