Full spectrum and Isolate CBD explained - What's the difference? 💚Full-spectrum is just as it’s described: it’s using the full spectrum of the entire plant. There are over 100 cannabinoids that have been discovered so far and there are definitely many more out there. It’s as if we keep discovering a few new ones each week.
The cannabinoids, however, are only found in the flowering part of the plant. With Full-spectrum, instead of simply picking and choosing one part of the plant, it’s allowing the plant to work together in harmony with each of its parts.
The importance lies in keeping that intact so that all the elements, including the cannabinoids, also work together in harmony in our endocannabinoids system. These elements also include terpenes and all the other wonderful compounds that are in the plant. There are minerals, vitamins and antioxidants all wrapped up in it. Because of this, the Full-spectrum is almost like another superfood. The superfood of superfoods, if you will. 💚Isolate is also just as it sounds. Isolate is simply taking one type of cannabinoid, typically CBD, and extracting it. The hemp plant is really high in CBD, so it's an easy one to be able to isolate. There are so many health benefits surrounding the use of CBD, as you've probably been hearing for the past several years. The major pro for using Isolate is in the case where people need to take a certain amount of CBD each day, as it's a very stable way to measure how much they’re taking. The measurability and reliability of Isolate CBD is, therefore, its strongest quality.
