CBD products typically fall into three different categories; full spectrum, broad spectrum, and CBD isolate. These categories are important for the public to know due to the unfortunate fact that firms typically test for THC. Thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD products that are hemp derived and that contain up to 0.3% THC are allowed to be sold to the public without a medical marijuana card. This is what makes each kind of product unique:
- Full-spectrum CBD products contain all of the naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant, including CBD, THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes. These products can provide a more comprehensive range of potential health benefits but may also contain THC, which can cause psychoactive effects and may not be legal in some states or countries.
- Broad-spectrum CBD products are similar to full-spectrum products in that they contain multiple cannabinoids and terpenes, but they typically have the THC removed. This makes them a good option for those who want the potential benefits of multiple compounds in the cannabis plant without any THC.
- CBD isolate products contain only pure CBD, with all other compounds removed. These products are the most refined and typically have no flavor or aroma, making them a good choice for those who prefer a neutral taste or are sensitive to other compounds found in the plant.
It’s important to note that the effects of CBD can vary from person to person, and the best product for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplement regimen.
