CBD 101 - What's the Difference?


Abundantlycanna and PurVitals are pleased to present the third installment of their informational email series:

CBD 101 - What's the Difference?


There are three major types of CBD.  Understanding the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate will help you make a more educated decision on which products will best suit your needs.

FULL SPECTRUM:  Full Spectrum CBD means the whole plant is extracted.  The end product includes everything the hemp plant contains.  Full Spectrum CBD products contain CBD as well as flavonoids, terpenes and other cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN and trace amounts of THC. All these elements have their own therapeutic value. Full spectrum CBD allows for the "entorage effect".  This is the effect of cannabinoids and terpenes working together in perfect synergy.  Simply put, it's keeping our body balanced and functioning at optimum level.  One big factor in using Full Spectrum is the trace amounts of THC.  You risk not passing drug tests if you use Full Spectrum.

BROAD SPECTRUM: Broad spectrum CBD products contain cannabinoids and terpenes but zero THC. Think of Broad Spectrum CBD as Full Spectrum without the THC.  Broad Spectrum CBD, goes through additional processing to isolate and remove as much trace amounts of THC possible while preserving the other natural cannabinoids and terpenes. Broad Spectrum CBD is an excellent choice for individuals that can’t have any traces of THC in their system, but still want the added health benefits of the entire hemp plant.  PurVitals products are Broad Spectrum.

ISOLATE: CBD Isolate is CBD is it's purest form.  During the extraction process everything contained in the plant, beyond CBD, is removed.  This includes any traces of THC, terpenes, waxes, oils, chlorophyll and more. What’s left is 99+% pure CBD.

As we mentioned in our first post, there are no standards in place for CBD products.  This creates a market for inferior CBD Hemp Oil products.  How do you know you are getting the "good stuff"?

1. Be sure to read the label. Look for organically grown, made in USA products.

2. Confirm the product you are purchasing is 3rd party tested.  A 3rd party test will confirm full content of ingredients.
