CBD Isolate or Full Spectrum. Whats the difference?

Weather you're new to the CBD world or have been shopping around for a while, there's a good chance you've encountered both Full Spectrum CBD options as well as pure CBD Isolate products and have been faced with the big decision: Which one do I get and whats the difference? 


Simply put, CBD Isolate is purified CBD that has been extracted from the plant and isolated from the other compounds and cannabinoids that contribute to the full chemical make up of the hemp plant. In other words if you're purchasing CBD isolate products you're consuming pure CBD. Simple, right?

Full Spectrum CBD

Based off of the above information, you can probably guess what Full Spectrum is referring to. Although CBD is a very important, beneficial and, arguably, the most popular compound found in the plant, it is far from the ONLY one. There are a number of different cannabinoids, THCA, CBDA, CBG, CBC etc. that work together to help the the effectiveness of CBD in the human body. When you purchase or use Full Spectrum CBD products, you're getting all the benefits of all the cannabinoids found in the plant.

So Which Do I Use?

It's important to note that CBD effects every one person differently. So it is difficult to say with certainty that one form will be more effective than the other. However, there have been study's comparing the two and, generally speaking, Full Spectrum CBD has been proven more "effective" than pure CBD Isolate. With that being said that does not mean CBD Isolate is not as effective for certain conditions and, as always, you should consult a doctor or medical professional before seeking relief from either.
